The paintjobs were pretty straightforward, even if they took me forever because I was being pretty careful. This time it was a sprayed base coat of Grey Seer, with a zenithal overspray with white.

Careful down-only drybrush with white to re-highlight the “tops” of the “flames”. Varnished to protect the WIP, then the gold was carefully picked out, then washed, drybrushed, and then job done. Shame it took me about three months to get them done.

Ah well. I’ll live.
