This past week I painted the Fungal Guardian from the Bones 4 Darkreach Expansion set. This will conclude the mushroom people from that set that I am painting. There were two small mushroom "children" called Fungoids in the set, but I felt they were too cartoony and almost Chibi looking, and didn't fit with the rest stylistically.
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added and then rinsing and drying. I then trimmed the base a little and glued the figure to a black primed 1.25" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue. I then set the washer in my painting grip.
Next, I painted the entire base with Americana "Zinc". When dry, I gave the base a coat of some of the "Nuln Oil" wash. When the wash was dry, I gave it a light drybrush with some Americana "Neutral Grey" followed by Americana "Dove Grey"
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
Below is my Darkreach Mushroom-folk and Shrieking Mushroom collection (minus the Fungoids.) There are also a pair of translucent purple mushrooms in the Darkreach set, but I'm waiting on those; as I'm trying to figure out a way to illuminate them...
