I've got the base painted, I might have to tweak the coloring based on what Big Bird of Winged Death From Above ends up being. But the first coatings are down on the BBoWDFA:
Starting off with Menoth White Base, and mixed up a wash of PP Ember Orange, Citadel Gryphonne Sepia wash, Vallejo Light Grey (to take some of the Orange brightness down). Comes up with a orange-brown wash. This is me playing with mixing colors/washes together and seeing what happens. A bit of experimenting.
After this dries, I'll use some more Gryphonne Sepia Wash to get more into the nooks and crannies, then start dry brushing browns and oranges on top. At least that is what i'm thinking at this point in the painting process.
