Pulp Figures Rocketeers
Here's some pics of a small Pulp order of a group of rocketeers for a customer. These are all Pulp Figures miniatures at 28mm "scale". I used a bit more washes than I normally do and I really like the way these came out. We recently started making our own washes so I've been toying around with them more to get the formula down right and learn what their capabilities are.
Normally I'd go with a dry brush for a highlight. For these, however, I did a base coat and a wash to add a shade to the base color. This method requires one to use a base color a little lighter in shade than their desired final color as the wash will darken them up more.
If you want more detail you can paint the base coat on, drybrush a highlight color, then apply the wash. This will help blend the drybrushing to the base color and smooth the transition. It's similar to wet-blending, but quicker. The results will not be as smooth as when you wet-blend, but it is easier. Still , the simple wash did a more than acceptable job on these.
I'm happy with the results as is the customer. These will make a fine addition to the Pulp Table.
