A quick dark leather recipe

Long time since we had no recipes. There is something to share, but the total lack of free time affects :-(
Here is a small recipe for "leather" products of small size, pouches etc.
Basically now I use browns and oranges from Pacific88 Art Color for this, but now I was asked to do it based on Vallejo / Citadel.

base - black + Dark Fleshtone (Vallejo Game Color)
highlights gradually adding Flat Brown (Vallejo Model Color) to the pure
then Flat Brown highlights with the addition of Skrag Brown (Citadel Layer)
add a very little Scrofulous Brown (VGC) and highlight up using Iraqui Sand (VMC).
At the end, we paint the little lines with a semi-transparent Iraqui Sand.

Yolanda Skorn

Good news everyone! I worked on this model in the breaks between endless space marines to get just a little rest. So now Yolanda Skorn is finished. Unfortunately I don't know who sculpted this beauty but this guy did a very nice job. It is my first Necromunda miniature but I am sure a far not last. Hope you like it as much as I am enjoyed in the process of painting.

P.S. the miniature wants a new home, write us someone interested

M&Ms Marines project: augmented melta-guy

Good news, Everyone!
First Marine from my new space marine project now painted, only base left. I tried to do him as "old school" as I ca in remembrance of good old days when no one ca imagined the Great Rift or Primaris space marine.
What I can say more... yellow is a @&$^! tough color. Really easier to do a NMM bionic leg that the yellow normal one.
So stay turned 'cause more bright color old school marines is coming!

Savior - 40 years old

So beautiful miniature lady!
It was a big pleasure to paint it.
At this time I tried to mix some different colors (red, orange, green and purple). Hope the result is not motley. And it is satisfying for me.
It was very important to not lose face with so red-red dress. And I chose black color for her hairs to do strong contrast. And I think it is working.

New one from Kingdom death.
Now it is Bard. Very nice miniature to paint )))
I chose my favorite purple color and added some different green details. But this time I took Magenta (V) instead Royal Purple (V) and mixed with Black. So I had strange gloss on coat. Maybe magenta paint was old or bad I don't have any idea.

Traitor Librarian project: the final

The Traitor-Librarian project is finally over and went yesterday to a new home. This project took considerably more time than I had originally planned and was one of those rare works that I would gladly leave in my collection. While working on this miniature, I came up with several interesting ideas that I will definitely try to realize when I make such an uncle for myself.
I hope you were also interested in watching the process and liked the result.

Traitor Librarian part 5: Burn Fire Burn!

The last part of the Traitor-Librarian project log will be devoted to the fire demon and glow effects.
The first thing that I would like to note is that the fire and all sorts of similar effects are better drawn on a light undercoat. Because I primed miniature with black, I need to do a layer of the light undercoat. I used Khaki (VGC), but in principle, any extra opaque light colors would work.
