A bit more progress has been made on the dwarf. I finished the leather gloves and boots, as well as the horns. The leather was achieved using VMC Leather Brown with successive highlights by adding Yellow Ochre. The horns were Cork Brown, washed with Devlan Mud and then highlighted up with Ivory. The back of the shield and the shaft of the hammer were done with German Camo Black Brown and then the grain was painted in with Camo Medium Brown and then thinned Yellow Ochre.
Here's a closer shot of the shield. I used Yellow Ochre for this as well. I wanted a splash of colour for it, but not too bright, so that colour suited quite nicely. The shield detail is obviously not finished yet! :)

- I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!
