Ewal Dvergar Boar Riders...Part III

Another quick post today...

...And another of Clam's fantastic Ewal Dvergar Boar Riders.  This one is another mix match...the body and Boar are from the Boar Rider release...but the helmet for this one comes from the earlier Ewal Dvergar warrior release, and it is one that I'm particularly fond of.

I've been meaning to try one of my chaos figures with black armor...but honestly I've been hesitant too until now.  Long time readers of this blog may remember a post I wrote about a system I had learned for painting black from a few years ago (LINK)...I have only used it sparingly since this initial attempt and never on a subject with this much area to cover...but this seemed like the perfect chance to give it a try on a more challenging subject.

...but before I reveal the final piece I want to take another opportunity to heap high praise on John Pickford for the sculpting on the boars he produced for this range and for Clam...They are superb and this one was another joy to paint.  Take a look!

These boar sculpts are great and they paint up extremely easily...this is honestly about 15 minutes of painting...mostly brybrushing.  Simple and effective.  Pickford did another amazing job on this one.

...but lets not forget the excellent riders as well!  Here is the finished product!

With this guy done I am now 1/2 way thru my unit of Boar Riders ...I'd share a unit shot with you as well but I need to do a repair on the red rider...his cleaver broke off.  So I'll get a unit shot for you after the next one is complete.




  1. Nice looking black armor. I'll have to go back and read your technique sometime. I use my trusty Lamp Black and Charcoal craft paints to get this effect.

  2. That is one moody looking stunty. Looking good, Blue!

  3. Isn't it wonderful when a simple technique can yield such fantastic results?!
