THUTMOSE III “Thutmose dresses in a combination of ancient Egyptian  and modern European styles. He wears no physical  armour but is well protected by the Regalia of Ra, his  Talents and his Mystical Powers”  UNDERCOATING The model should need little cleaning up, but it is worth  going over any model carefully just to make sure there is  no flash or mould lines, clean any off with a sharp  scalpel an a fine file. Undercoating is essential as it  provides a consistent surface on which to apply the next

coats of paint, and it shows up the detail on a model much  more clearly than shiny bare metal. For the undercoat I  used Humbrol enamel matt black. I usually undercoat in  oil based paint as I find they give better coverage on the  bare metal.  THE PAINT I used Army Painter War Paints to paint Thutmose III,  mixing up colours to suit my style and preferences. The  Mega Paint Set provides an adequate range of colours  for almost all needs, but you will often need to mix colours  to get the desired results, however I have tried to work out  colour combinations to reduce mixing if possible.   PAINTING The figure painting follows my well known method of  working from dark to light shaded up from a black  undercoat. This three or more colour painting method  uses successive tones of colour (shade, middle and light)  which are added to the model in layers, working up from  dark to light. This creates a bold three-dimensional effect  of shadows and highlights, the layers of colour giving  greater depth and subtlety to the model. For the facial  detail and for the eyes I used an Insane Detail brush. For  the rest of the model I used a Warpaints Detail brush.
