Logan Grimnar kit-bash #4

With work on my Grimnar kit-bash progressing, I thought I would take a moment to start building a second Grimnar, in the case of a game where I don't want to use the Stormrider, and or the Stormrider is destroyed and you're left to slog it out on foot.

The Grimnar kit is fairly quick and easy to assemble, the only annoying part is the fitting of the two cape pieces and slotting of the cape into the head piece.

After assembling, cleaning mold lines, scrubbing with detergent, I begin laying down a coat of Vallejo Polyurethane Primer Grey, Vallejo Game Air Sombre Grey and some blacklining wash.

 
With the basics blocked in I then lay an few layers of Vallejo Wash Umber and Sepia shades mixed 50/50 into the fur areas. 
 
Then I got stuck into blocking in the red for the cloak. Starting with the usual recipe of Vallejo Model Air Mahogany, Vallejo Opaque Heavy Red, Vallejo Game Air Light Red, then Vallejo Game Air Hot Orange and Light Orange concentrated on the highest folds.
 
The colors got a little blown out in the photos, but you get the idea.
 

I will go back and do the final highlights on the cloak, go back in and finalize the fur. Then get stuck into the actual armor.

More to come on this.
