Those are the Tots you were looking for…

Here they are in all their mediocre glory! But hey, I actually painted something, and here is the proof! So, I guess a rundown of what I did (with a lot of help from Bryan) to get these done.

I started by adding some Bleached Bone to Blood Red to get a good base for their skin tone. Then, I base coated their hair with Codex Grey. I washed the hair and joint like areas in a black wash, then preceded to highlight the hair with Spacewolf Grey and the body with Macharius Solar Orange (tip that Bryan gave me is to be very careful when highlighting with a foundation paint, it is easy to over highlight. I found that out the hard way…). Needless to say that I had to attempt this multiple times. This is also the first time I have painted eyes on my models, and it shows! I need to rework the taller one, he has one extremely large eye! I painted the blades with Chainmail, washed with black and brown, and highlighted with Mithril Silver. That is basically it for the Tots themselves. The bases are just base coated with Codex Grey, washed with black and brown, then highlighted with Spacewolf Grey. I added magma to the bottom of the base so it would look like the rock was floating in it. That was Blood Red, the Solar Orange for the hotter part, then a light sprinkling of Golden Yellow to indicate the really hot spots. I followed that up with taking some of that Solar Orange and dry brushing it on the undersides of the stone and then a really light dry brushing of Golden Yellow over that to give it the lighting effect.

This is it for now until my dull coat comes in the mail. After I seal them I will paint the magma with a glossy hard coat to make it shine more and give a more flowing effect. I also want to add a little bit of dead foliage to the bases to give them a bit of a different color in there to look at. Many thanks to Bryan who showed me the different techniques I used to paint these pretty cool models, and after finishing the Mature Nephlim and Lilith maybe I can become a Wyrd Henchmen!
