Painting Ghorgor-Bey

I've been painting this mini for a few days, and I confess I wasn't aware how time-consuming such a big and detailed model can be. So far, it's been some 13-15 hours and going....

The Barrel:

  • Bronzed Fleshtone (base)
  • Smoke (wash)
  • black ink (I applied it to the recesses betwen the planks)
  • Bronzed Fleshtone + White (brushed with the side of a brush to highlight the wood)

I painted the handle of the knife - I had a concept, but left the rest unpainted because I hadn't decided about the general color scheme yet.

The Chainmail:

  • black ink (applied to the recesses - dries slower than regular paint, but is better suited for this kind of details)
  • Intermediate Blue (base - every link of the chainmail was defined)
  • Ghost Grey + Intermediate Blue (more Ghost Grey - the first highlight)
  • White (extreme highlights)
  • Smoke (applied to some parts as rust)

The Axe's Blade (Silver NMM):

  • Intermediate Blue (base)
  • Ghost Grey + Intermediate Blue (first highlight)
  • Ghost Grey (second highlight)
  • Ghost Grey + White (third highlight)
  • Ghost Grey + Smoke (shading)
  • White (extreme highlights)

The Axe's Blade (Gold NMM):

  • Cobra Leather (base)
  • black ink (applied to the recesses)
  • Cobra Leather + White (highlighting up to white)

And now he looks like this:
