How to do a Quick Shield

Now this may not be everybody's thing but I did a very quick shield for a 28mm Uruk Hai. It helps with my commission work for table top standard to do things well, but have quicker methods.
All in all this took me 1.5 minutes to do and I think the effect works - well for me anyway.

So to start
Black primer
Now literally liberal coats, not concerned if you exactly cover everything as showing the lower levels helps the beaten up effect.
VMC Tinny Tin
Scale 75 Heavy Metal

Now stipple pure VGC Beasty Brown - the pure paint creates texture.

And that's it - heres the look

Death Bust

Part of my collaboration with Dave Stone aka Wargamesculptor, is a first for both of us. His first bust he has sculpted and the first I have painted.
I found this a completely new challenge.
Initially I felt green was the way to go for the flames and I was going to go green with the rest of the figure. I changed my mind and then went about deciding the colour scheme.
I chose opposing sides of the colour wheel to throw in reds and oranges.
The fluorescents came out as well to help give this some pop.
Anyway, enough rambling, hope you like
