Cerberus aka Fluffy

Continuing with the MB:P painting project, I give you Cerberus - Guardian of the gates of Hades.  

Lovely model, with no flash or gaps that needed filling.

  1. Wow! That looks amazing. I have two questions, if I may? The black body looks great, is that washes, drybrushed or simply base colour? Whatever it is, it has worked really well. I am also intrigued by the basing and what you have used, again I just love the effect.

    1. Thank you Michael! I was going for that very dark grey you find on some pitbulls and similar breeds, so - The black body was sprayed with black matte automotive sandable primer then very lightly drybrushed with Vallejo London Grey. After I finished the rest of the painting, I varnished with Army Painter Strong Tone dip and then spray matte varnish.

      My flock mixture is detailed in this post -

      Hope that all helps!

    2. Yes it does, thank you! I have only recently discovered Army Painter Dip and to hear you mention it as a varnish I'm sitting here thinking, 'of course!' A protective layer, with a subtle colour change - genius! Thank you also for the flock recipe, I just like the way it looks as a nice alternative to static grass.

    3. I should also mention that I use a brush to apply the AP-Dips. I find it works better and you don’t get pooling in/on areas you don’t want there to be pooling.

      Also, all the dips dry shiny, so a matte varnish finish is always a must if ye don’t want shiny figures.
