The Fur was next to finish and i did this with a layer of brown red, followed by brown orange (to an almost orangutan look) then highlighted for depth and variation with both a beige and in some places a white.
Why? you ask...simple! i say.
Crazy violent weapon wielding ape-men warrant a blood splatter in my opinion, being that mainly the only time said "simian" people's would have ever wielded a weapon was with the intent of bloodshed or to hunt i felt it apt to "aggro" these guys up a bit with some violent blood splashes!
A decision i do not regret! not only has it given them an exciting and much needed splash of color onto their otherwise brown and dull palette but it has given them a level of characteristic depth, that which only blood can inspire.
Check them out in their finished - pre varnished - state below. An check back tomorrow for a review of the miniatures themselves and updates on my other chimpy commission!
