This week I finished up two of the Bones II dwarf cleric figures: Barden Barrelstrap from the Dragons Don't Share set, and Thain Grimthorn from the Original Core set. I paired them up as being ideal to fill the roles of a Thaumaturge wizard and his Apprentice for my Frostgrave collection. And, since I wanted them to be dressed similarly, I figured I would paint them both at the same time.
I had the idea that they would be followers of the twin gods of metal: Argent and Aur. So, I decided to paint them in yellow and white as the symbolic colors of their gods.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued each figure to a white-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue. I then glued the washers to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue each.
When the base was dry I glued on a section of sprue cut to look like a stone block on the first dwarf's base, and some course sand on both bases. When the glue was dry, I painted the block and sand Black, then drybrushed the sand with the "Neutral Grey", followed with Folk Art "Platinum Grey". When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" early the next morning. Midday, I flocked the white areas with Woodland Scenics "Snow" flock and late that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
