Continuing with the Dinovember theme, this wonderful piece of resin was picked up a couple of years ago at a Salute in one of those impulse buys that always begs the question, "why?" Well it just looked so very cool! An 'Acheson Creations' dead Sauropod from their Primaeval Designs it practically called out to me from the 'Magister Militum' stand and before I knew it we were homeward bound.
A simple base colour followed by layers of dry brushing got the skin to where you see it now, which just left the gore to deal with! The flesh was a simple red shade, but the rib cage and digestive tract, or certainly that which remains, were picked out in different colours before lashings of Tamiya clear red was added. The secret, such that it is, is to apply the clear red in varying tones, I find some mixed with a diluted black wash helps to give a fresh, aerated look.
The wonderful thing about the blogosphere, particularly the warm, fuzzy little corner that '28mm Victorian Warfare' inhabits, is that there is so much to be inspired by and the following comes as a direct response to the wonderful battle reports that are published on 'Chris' Gaming Journal'. The software is called 'Comic Life', but I warn you it is wonderfully addictive!
