The first of my three Shadow Hulks for my night stalkers. This model is almost entirely airbrushed. Black undercoat first (Vallejo) then a dark gray for a small highlight from above. Each set of scales was then highlighted with a lighter gray using blue-tack to mask and allow the airbrush to focus on a single scale.
Purple effect was airbrushed into each of the slits and holes to create a minor OSL glow effect. White was painted into the slits and holes then, very thinned down to get into the cracks. Thicker white painted over that for coverage. Purple ink and some minor highlighting where required.
Lots of mat varnish to seal each layer and a final mat varnish to seal the whole model. I find the airbrush paints rub off easily if you don't varnish.
The base is the same as the rest of my models. I tried to create a little waterfall and while it didn't work as intended it did make a nice stream effect. The water surface is broken up with Vallejo water effects. They're good, but by prepared for them to shrink a lot.
I think it's my best night stalker yet and I'm getting better with the airbrush. Comments are definitely welcome.
