Minions Ironback Spitter Heavy Warbeast…

Soooooo I can’t even recall the last time I painted a fully organic/animal model. I was always more of a sci-fi buff versus fantasy. This would also be my very first model for my Blindwater Congregation Army at our local Journeyman league. No Pressure. I decided to go with a very very limited palette since it is a beast and you usually don’t see a wide array colors in the animal kingdom except for some birds, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, ok ok I was just lazy and wanted to keep it simple! The Ironback Spitter wasn’t too hard to put together and the arms were pretty open to pose how you wanted to some degree. To break away from all the future green my Blindwater Congregation would be consumed in, I decided to go brown Desert Tortoise style. Let the lazy blackwash technique on organic models experiment begin!


“Ahhhhhhhh WTF Man!? I got a pink tongue not RED!!!”

The Lazy Blackwash Technique Works! Me thinks…

  1. White P3 Primer
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors
  3. Used Citadel Badab Black wash all over the miniature
  4. Minimal highlights (tongue & eyes)
  5. Bases are comprised of a mix of Gale Force Nine medium & fine basing grit with Army Painter Battlefield Swamp Tuft
  6. Army Painter Anti-Shine Matte Varnish
  7. Vallejo Gloss Varnish only on his mouth & tongue to give that wet/moist feel
