A clean and tidy painting station, the calm before the storm.  :)

Indeed the mess will eventually happen!

Knocked out a paladin or fighter tonight. I really, really like this sculpt. There were some areas I probably should have taken the time to clean up but the pre-priming on a Wizkid mini makes it a hassle. I was also in a mood after having located all of my ongoing projects except the ones I wanted to find. For the life of me, I cannot remember how or where I packed my English foot knights and archers. I wanted to work on that project some more since I have the new Lion's Rampant rules. Anyway, back to tonight's project.

White is a pain to paint and I find Citadel's whites to be very chalky. I did try mixing a few batches with some different mediums but it only marginally helped. I went with a very, very watered-down blue wash for the shadows. It worked out ok but the cool tone drove the color selection for the cape. And after I called it tabletop ready, I found the apothecary grey contrast paint I had picked up to specifically test on shading whites and light greys. But such is life.
