[Song of Fork and Heroes]
Mythical Agyptian Giant Scorpion

After painting the horns, spikes, whatever, I gloss coated the model, then applied a black oil wash to the body, anx a brown oil wash to the armour.

Done.

The base colour for the scorpion is Flat Brown from Vallejo. When I thought about painting the model, black came to my mind first. After googling I was happy to see, that scorpions do exist in a variety of colours, as black would have looked quite drab.

Brown it is. I basecoated the model in a mix of Flat Brown and black.

Next came Flat Brown, leaving the darker colour in the recesses only.

Highlights were added with Cavalry Brown and finally Deck Tan. The horns and claws were basecoated in Cavalry Brown as well.

With a recent restock of brushes and colours, I ordered this scorpion for my Mythical Agyptians - the first mythical element. I assembled it and mounted it on a base by Product for Wargamers, by planting the tips of the legs in some Miliput for a stronger connection.
