Warmachine: Cryx Skarlock Thrall

And now for a nearly-new post!

Anyone who’s followed the Hammertime 40K wargaming blog for a while will have noticed that the posts I’ve been doing have been reposts from Hammertime 40K. It’s been cool seeing all my ‘old’ stuff come up again, but now it’s time for some newer stuff!

I just took some better photos of this Skarlock Thrall, the ones I posted previously were off my phone so the macro and exposure were a bit off (my fault, not the fault of the camera’s).

There’s only one or maybe two good angles of this one, and head-on isn’t one of them! 🙂

Products used:
Badger Renegade Krome airbrush
Vallejo Black primer (airbrush)
Vallejo Grey primer (airbrush)
Formula P3 Blighted Gold
Vallejo Cold Grey
Formula P3 ‘Jack Bone
Formula P3 Necrotite Green
Vallejo Dead White
Formula P3 Cryx Bane Highlight on base


  • Oh yes,. these are much clearer photos than last I saw this little guy! Still looking very impressive 🙂

    May I ask, Vallejo Dead White – is that what you’ve used to get the bone colour? I’m still on the hunt for a nice bone highlight and this skeleton looks perfect!! 🙂

    • Aw thanks! 🙂 Dead White is a pure white, P3 ‘Jack Bone was the base for the bony bits, purely because it’s in the ‘official’ color set for Cryx and the other Cryx models I’m doing use the same color. Then I did a wash of Sepia Wash from my homemade washes (see the post I did on that), then a drybrush of the ‘Jack Bone, then a drybrush of ‘Jack Bone with an equal amount of Vallejo Dead White. Then I did a step or two of increasingly light drybrushing as I mixed in more of the Dead White and finally a very light drybrush of Dead White. It sounds like more work than it is, I basically used a couple drops of the bone color and a couple drops of white for all the drybrushing.

      • Thankyou so much for the description. I already have jack bone but doesnt quite give the effect I want on its own. Might get a dead white next purchase 🙂 and you make your own washes?? How cool!

        • Yeah any pure white will work to add to the bone colors for extra highlight. Just mix in more and more as you need it for drybrushing or edge highlighting or whatever you’re doing. Also see the front page of the site and scroll down to see the post I did on make your own washes. Lester Burley has a Youtube video and a page on his site showing how it’s done. It’s great to make a bottle at a time, or whole jar of wash at a time if you want to play around with dip-washing.
