#BloodBowl - Halfling Team - Kurnoth Hunter Treemen - underpainting and fluoro pink

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer my Kurnoth Hunters to be used as Treemen in my Halfling Blood Bowl Team. It seems a bit odd to be covering up all that red with more white but that's how the underpainting works.

I created a wood grain effect, so it looks like when it's pink it's been painted over the grain that's already there.

I suppose it would have been cool to have some areas where you could see the existing grain, similar to the areas that are already silver birch and the pink areas look painted on.

But I wasn't sure I could achieve the effect I was looking for so I just decided all areas would pink and I wouldn't be adding the pinstripes as it was going to be a bit busy already with the wood grain.

You should also have spotted I highlighted the rest of the silver birch areas too and also applied some sepia and green washes in areas to add a little more variety in the colour.

This is pure VMC Magenta Fluorescent and you can see it's worked similar to Contrast. 

It's stained the white areas and the red areas have been tinted a little so you have this subtle differentiation between the wood grains 

This leaves me to add some red shading in all the recess and shadow areas and then add some highlights on all the raised areas and pick out some additional wood grain detail.

I mean it's garish, but it always is at this stage. 

So, just those highlights next to do...


  1. Very fun! Interested to see how they turn out.

    1. Cheers, although funnily enough I just spotted I'd missed an inbetween post to get to this stage and forgotten a couple of other posts for other projects that should have been published before we got here! Sort of fixed now but it's mixed up my schedule. Still, they'll be done before the end of the season.
