On the Bench: Broodlord [Zoning Out Week]

Today’s On the Bench article covers the process of painting my broodlord. The process began with priming it with a coat of GW White primer. Once the primer was dry, I completed the process of painting the purple sections of the model.

Note: The last number in each ratio designates the amount of thinner I used for that step.

Vallejo Royal Purple 4:1
Vallejo Hexed Purple 4:1
Vallejo Hexed Purple/Blue Violet 4:1:1
Vallejo Hexed Purple/Blue Violet/Skull White 4:1:1:1
Vallejo Hexed Purple/Blue Violet/Skull White 4:1:2:2
Vallejo Hexed Purple/Blue Violet/Skull White 1:1:1:1

Once the purple section was completed, I next tackled the carapace areas of the model.
