A couple of months ago I was feeling pretty flush for cash so I treated myself to a paint set from Vallejo. It didn’t hurt that the set was on offer at Element Games with a whopping £40 off (I’m not being paid by them for this by the way, just reporting the situation as it was, and still is as of time of writing!)
A few days later my set arrived, and now that I’ve had time to get lots of use from it, I’m ready to tell you Wot I Think.
Lovely title here to discuss a quick way of painting the featuring boils that adorne our models. It’s moments like this you begin to realise how bizarrely fantastic our hobby can be at times. Anyway on with the show and as always when looking at how best to paint something the easiest way is to observe how it looks in reality. Now you may have your own fine collection of scabby blisters or have child covered in the pox from which to draw inspiration but otherwise it may on reflection be a bit tricky to follow this rule in this situation. People tend to get quite upset if you stare at their scabby bits and i wouldnt advise you taking a stroll through your local infectious diseases ward. However inspiration is but a quick google search away and use of online resources like the wonderful DermnetNZ can provide for all your colourful pox picture needs (please don’t use to self diagnose or if of a hypercondriachal disposition!) (lol Ed).
