So I've finished my first 2 squads of battle sisters, and given they're my first ever minis, I'm pretty happy with the results. Looking to paint my cannonness now, and for the most part I'll be following the same paint scheme, with a bit more care, but...
no idea what to do with the fur! I prime in black, so I'm not sure how to work this up to a white/grey or light/dark brown fur. am I best off base coating the entire thing, washing, then dry brushing the top, or do I want to leave the recesses black for shading purposes (and just drybrushing the top "points")? The fur "scarf" around her back has such deep crevasses I'm unsure how to approach it.. Thanks!
I would depend on the colour you want it to be, but I would usually say you'd be better of with a light coat for a base colour, then wash it down before drybrushing over it to highlight; or you could just do a dark basecoat and then drybrush from there. For brown, I think something like a scorched brown base, then drybrush with graveyard earth, then a light drybrush of snakebite leather and right towards the edges use bleached bone.
On my Grumlok & Gazbag model, who has a massive fur coat, all I did was extremely simple with 2 paints and 1 wash.
Prime black (obviously)
Scorched brown all over the fur
Drybrush bleached bone
Wash with Devlan mud
Easy as! Looks nice too. Just make sure its a drybrush of bleached bone, not painted on.
