Welcome to part one of my Mannfred Count of Sylvania painting log.
I prepared Mannfred for priming by removing mold lines and flash using a selection of needle files, sandpaper, and iron wool. I removed the slotta tab and pinned his feet using a pin vice and pieces of a paper clip.
Mannfred’s base, seen here unpainted, consists of a 30mm Dark Age base, a bit of cork tile, Woodland Scenics fine gray talus, and a sprinkling of Games Workshop modeling sand. Holes were drilled to accommodated the pins in Mannfred’s feet.
Mannfred’s pinned feet were inserted into a mount that I made from a cork and a piece of foam core. He was primed using Citadel Color Skull White primer.
Finally, Mannfred’s base was primed using Citadel Color Chaos Black primer.
Welcome to my painting log for Mannfred Count of Sylvania. I just picked up Mannfred from my local gaming/hobby store. This is my first attempt at painting a miniature in nearly two years. To make things easier on myself, I am going to follow the Count Mannfred Masterclass article from the May 2008 issue of White Dwarf magazine. I will be using mostly Games Workshop Citadel Color Vallejo Model Color paints. Please check back often for updates.
This is a light tent I constructed for taking pictures of my miniatures. It is made from an old cardboard box, bristol board, and muslin. The light is a Tensor 15W (75W equivalent) Natural Daylight bulb.
Instructions for constructing this light tent can be found here.
