This is the last time I will say this, I swear. However, painting this Lord Executioner, in addition to the other Nighthaunt models that I painted showed me that that painting with Contrast paints might just be the method that works best for me. You see, the Nighthaunt paints Hexwraith Flames and Nighthaunt Gloom are similar to the new Contrast Paints and I really liked using them; maybe even more important, is the fact I think I achieve decent tabletop quality paint jobs with them.
I think this is my favorite model that I painted and I think that everything came together almost perfectly with this model. I got all three of the older ghost style of paints to work: Hexwraith Flame, Nighthaunt Gloom, and Nihilakh Oxide. I also was able to blend the flames on the axe and I also was able to use washes to paint the hanging beam and rope on his back. This was the first model that made me think I could actually paint to a solid tabletop standard. In addition, it leads me to believe that I might be able to make Contrast paints work for me, with some practice of course.
That is all for this post. Before I start to ramble and return to my regularly scheduled chaotically disorganized ways, I will thank you for stopping by and giving my blog a read. Until the next one, Utterly Unfocused signing out.
