    KD: Dragon Sacrifice

    I painted this one as a super-late Christmas present for one of my best friends. She specializes in Chinese policy, so I thought she'd like the dragon. Here's the front linked due to, um, maybe too much skin? Front View The base is a plastic Arcane from that micro arts kick-starter with CMON. I used deep ocean, fair skin, nightshade purple and leather white for the blue side and then mahogany brown, chestnut gold, palomino gold and buckskin pale for the golds.
  2. In preparation for 2016 I'm trying to get some of my half-finished 2015 minis off the shelf and into the done pile. I had no color scheme in mind for this mini so I grabbed some paint at random. Most of the time that I do this I decide that it was a horrible idea and put the paints back, but on occasion I just roll with it. Just to practice something different I desaturated all of the paints with white and gave her the '80s pastel look. About halfway through I did decide that I didn't really like this mini, but hey, she was a bonus and not the reason I made my purchase in the first place. For her base I kept with the same look as my previous KD:M minis, but just slapped the paint on quickly for tabletop quality. Also, this is the first mini I've finished using the Reaper skintones that I picked up earlier this month. It's probably the worst face that I've called finished in a long time, but she's off the table.

    A Kingsman

    Presenting a Kingsman, (magical, bio-mechanical soldiers that guard the Kings Realm from all intruders) from Kingdom Death. Struggled with his inner, light blue cape, I found the folds weird and couldn't get it shaded to my liking, but I think the rest came out nicely. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, greatly appreciated.
  4. Another week, another survivor that I don't know the name of. (Fluff, who reads it?) For the second female I attempted to conquer the Scale75 Arabic Shadow. Of the paints in the flesh set, it is the one that I find kind of odd. While it's worked ok as a minor component of darker mixes it just doesn't look right next to any of the other colors, especially the lighter ones. In order to get my shadows and highlights to play well together, I tried to make sure that each mix was at least a quarter Arabic Shadow. After many mixes and much layering I've decided that you can get a decent skin out of it, but it was a whole lot of work to recreate something that I believe already exists as part of Reaper's Olive triad. What I have isn't well blended, but I've lost interest in her. This survivor is topless though she does have a conveniently placed arm that covers her just as well as any other fantasy female garb. As such I don't really consider her NSFW, but I've gone ahead and attempted to create a dropbox photo group using just one link. It's working for me, but if anyone has an issue with the link I'll add in separate direct links for each photo. The images are autocropped for preview, but clicking one will start a slideshow. Female Survivor Once I finish the lion I'll do a group shot of all the starting pieces for the game. If I'm feeling particularly motivated I might even touch some of them up with the feedback I've received so far. That said, I'm starting to feel a bit of KD:M burnout so I might work on something unrelated this week.

    Kingdom Death Survivor - Zachary

    This guy took a while and is probably over the top for a gaming mini, but I present Zachary of the First Story of Kingdom Death: Monster! Flesh tones are basically what I used for Rollo last winter. Golden Highlight, Tanned Skin, Redstone Highlight, Russet Brown. I subbed in VGC Ivory for Linen White. I added Muddy Soil to deepen the shadows and create some definition in them. The cloth is basically Alien Flesh shaded with P3 Coal Black and tinted with glazes of Camo Green. Highlights mixed in Ivory and I deepened the shadows, mixing Walnut Brown into the Coal Black. The slight bit of NMM was that Coal Black/Walnut Brown mix brought up with Alien Flesh and Ivory. For the base, I just tried to emulate the game board's colors while sticking to colors used on the mini previously. WIP begins here
  6. Once again its Sunday night, which means it's time to snap some pics of another Kingdom Death Survivor. When I started these I wasn't really planning on painting one per week, but if I keep it up that would be 52 minis/year. I would be happy with that. This time it's a female survivor, whose name I do not know but I'm sure Cash does. For this survivor I decided to try out a few paints from the Scale75 Blood and Fire set that I hadn't used yet. Her dress was basecoated in Fuchsia and shaded with Sunset Purple. To get some more practice with extreme highlighting I took some parts up to white. Her back is kinda flat so I decided to freehand in a spine, but I didn't reference how many vertebrae should fit so I'm almost assuredly wrong on that.
  7. I should start looking these survivor's names up so I have something to call them. Anyway over the weekend I painted the other male starting survivor from the game box. I did some experimenting with the shadow portion of the Scale75 flesh set to try and make a more realistic African skin tone that I had done with my fire giant. I don't know anyone with dreads so I attempted so googling to get a better idea of how the highlights work. In the end I still just made it up. Like the last one, he's not sealed yet so I can use these pics to see if anything needs a touch-up first. ... and I see that I haven't finished the lantern. Updated with a name thanks to Cash.
  8. My first KD:M mini has reached the almost complete stage so it's time to take some dual purpose pics! These are part show-off, part see if there's anything I want to touch-up before sealing images. Honestly I can see plenty that would need work if these KD minis were destined for anything higher than the tabletop, but they are instead on a collision course with greasy pizza fingers. For those that didn't see my posts in the assembly thread, I decided to attempt a cold light on white stones. To keep with that idea I attempted a blue light in the lantern. I initially painted his cloth white, but didn't like how it looked next to the stones and went for something completely different. I am now adding red to my list of colors that I can't photograph. It appears to be very intense in the photograph, but is not quite so overpowering in hand. Since he's not going to be entered into any online painting competition I'm inclined to leave it as is and not worry about how it photographs. Here's how the base looks from above, and pretty color accurate. Sometimes my camera does behave.

    Storm Knight

    I present the Storm Knight by Kingdom Death. Fairly pleased with him, painting a cape made out of clouds was as difficult as I imagined, but I think I did okay. Slightly annoyed that you can't make out the water effects on his base though, it took a week to painstakingly slowly fill up that puddle! As always, all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.

    The Messenger of Courage

    The second of my four Messengers from Kingdom Death is all painted up:- Her WIP thread can be found here. Very pleased with this one (she looks a bit better in hand than the photos indicate!) As always, any comments and criticisms, are greatly appreciated.
  11. Making a start to part 2 of my saga, with the Messenger of Courage:- Just assembled and primed at the moment. Didn't like the sculpted ground effect on her fancy base insert, so I smooshed some Pumice Putty between the faces, should look a bit better when painted.

    The Messenger of the Spiral Path

    The first finished mini from my big pile of Kingdom Death: Monster stuff (and I don't even have most of it yet!), The Messenger of the Spiral Path:- Grrr... Capes, my old enemy returns! Apart from that though, I'm rather pleased with him, think he looks pretty good. You can find his WIP thread here. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  13. This is the first step on my epic journey to paint up my entire Kingdom Death: Monster set (and hopefully many, many as yet unmade future expansions), I'm starting with the Messenger of the Spiral Path:- I've left him fairly unassembled because there's quite a bit that will be inaccessible after his cape is fully attached (and his left arm won't fit properly with the cape off). So the current plan is to paint him from the waist down, his back, his right arm and the inside of his cape, then finish assembly, then finish painting him. I'm kinda making a lot more work for myself as most of this won't even be visible on the finished mini, but if I leave it, I'll know it's unpainted and it'll nag at me. Made a start on painting:- Hate painting red! So far there's 5 different colours on there (Carnage Red, 1:1 Carnage Red/Blood Red, Blood Red, 1:1 Blood Red/Vallejo Vermilion, Vermilion) and yet the Carnage Red basecoat has barely changed. Not a huge problem as most of this won't be seen, but I'm hoping the outside of the cape (also red) goes a bit better. Gotta try and make more progress tomorrow, as I've signed up to a thing on another forum and he's due to be presented at the end of September.

    A Storm Knight WIP

    Yep. Another Kingdom Death mini from me (can't get enough of the stuff at the moment), this time it's the fearsome Storm Knight:- Didn't get too far today though:- I've only managed to basecoat the steel and metallic blue parts in Nightmare Black. I think this is going to be an even harder project than I thought.

    Kingdom Death Chosen

    Kingdom Death: Monster is finally making its way into the hands of backers. I’ve had a chance to play it, and I can say that the game, and game pieces are quite good. It is gritty, tough and each time your tiny colony survives a nemesis, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. Now, while I don’t have any of the new minis from the game painted up, I do have one of Kingdom Death’s resin figures done. Here is the “Chosen.†While he does not yet have any rules, reading over the fluff blurb on him, I’m pretty sure that he’ll make it into a Kingdom Death expansion sometime (probably as a nemesis).
  16. Alright, finally got a lot of stuff off my painting desk and I am going to paint something that I want to paint instead of something for someone else. This is the first KD mini that I have had a go at so this should be fun/interesting/learning experience. Assembly was not too bad even though all the pieces and parts are tiny and delicate and resin. I will say that the mold lines are tiny and a pain to get off since I was worried about snapping a piece or going too far into detail. Took my time and still managed to miss one that ran down the entire right arm, ended up seeing it after priming, I think I got it all now. Not sure which lighting is better here so take your pick. Primed with duplicolor(?) white sandable auto primer, pretty good stuff from this first try, I may stick with it. I laid down a thinned coat of tanned flesh. Again with the lighting issue.. Then two more layers of thinned tanned flesh. That is where she stands right now, tanned flesh triad will continue after this busy weekend. C&C always welcome.

    The Flowers of The Forest

    So I recently discovered this photographer (NSFW): http://www.bellakotak.com/ I have been very inspired by her style and composition and I thought some of these photos would make spectacular miniatures. I decided to give it a shot with a little scene using the prone pregnant woman from the Wet Nurse. I've also wanted to give a sculpted base like what Corporea does a try So here is my start: There is a bit of the organic sculptural elements on the back but you can't see it in raw sculpey.

    Twilight Knight - Order Version

    'Twilight Knights are part of an organization dedicated to making sure humanity's glorious past is never forgotten. By gathering together what relics and fragments of knowledge they can find, they hope to restore at least a little of what was lost in the Great War. More heavily armoured and with greater mental conditioning than their regular counterparts. Order Knights are the shield of the organization, deployed to defend areas and items deemed to be of great importance. They stand steadfast in the face of whatever Void born madness comes their way.' Still struggling with taking photos at the moment (though these are a significant improvement over the first ones I took of this guy). A WIP thread can be found here. Overall I'm fairly pleased with how he came out, there's some serious room for improvement on his cape (I get stuck when the folds get large) but I'm getting there slowly. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  19. Still don't feel like facing my 'Shelf of Shame' at the moment, so I dug this guy out of my 'Pile of Shame':- The Order variant of the Twilight Knight from Kingdom Death. Between him needing quite a lot of prep work (the casting wasn't particularly good on this one), a paint explosion and general 'life suckiness', I haven't got very far:- His face is done (Vallejo Dwarf Flesh>Flesh Shade Wash>Dwarf Flesh>1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Linen White). I gave his eyes a few tries but they're way too small for me to pupilize, I might colour them in later but I'm liking them white at the moment. I've made a start on his tunic with a basecoat of Sapphire Blue, but I'm having doubts as to whether it's all one piece (the bottom half does look a lot more 'armour platey' compared to the obviously fabric top). There's also something going on under his left arm, so his tunic might actually be a tabbard over a breastplate, but I can't really make it out. So I worked on his funky shield:- But I don't think I'll get a decent picture of it until it's attached. The front of the shield is finished, the face drybrushed in Vallejo Bronze and Vallejo Burnished Gold, with the edges in Vallejo Oily Steel.

    Death in Scale75

    I've been hearing about Scale75 paints for awhile now, and after watching Willen's video I put them on my Christmas list. No one bought them for me though, so I had to go and pick them up myself. To start I decided to go with their Flesh set. Overall I like my Vallejo, but some of their skintones look a little orange to my eyes. Of course I can mix what I want, but a little variety is never a bad thing. Their sets also come with a small painting guide. If it wasn't for having four languages on it, the guide could have been printed on an index card. It's not going to outdo Willen's video, but here's my little unboxing. Aside from the paint you'll notice some tape and a pin vise. The tape is a little trick I learned at work; it keeps cheap ink from rubbing off of bottles. There's no point in covering the whole thing, but a strip over what's important can save some confusion later. Interestingly enough, the labels on a $3 bottle of paint are not really higher quality than those on a $180 bottle of similar size. While the bottles themselves are not as rounded as the Vallejo ones they do use essentially the same tip, with one important difference. The Scale75 is not drilled out at the factory. If you take the cap off and squeeze it'll be a bit messy. Vallejo's openings are about 1.5mm, while Reaper's are about 1.2mm. I actually like the slightly smaller opening so these got drilled to 1.2mm. Now that I have some new paint, I need something to try it out on. At first I was thinking bones, but I've already painted most of these in the box that were showing a bit of skin. Then I remembered that I had the Kingdom Death Pinups box just gathering dust on my shelf. Pinups it is! Back in like Jr high I used to do a bit of modeling. While most of what I had from back then is long gone, I did still have a bottle of polystyrene glue that I'd kept. Does this stuff last for 20 years? There's one way to find out! That's right, cut a couple of ends off the sprues and glue them together. It made a nice bond so on to the first mini. I didn't fully assemble the Twilight Knight simply because that cape was going to get in the way of painting. She'll be painted in two sections and then glued together at the end. Drilling out for pinning isn't really necessary but I went ahead and made a hole in the body just so I didn't have to worry about clipping my paperclip holder off completely flush. I also drilled out her heels so I could pin her to whatever I end up using as a base. Now for a color scheme. I don't really follow the fluff for KD, but I though the colors on the included card were kind of boring. Since she's a twilight night she should have twilight colors! A quick search turned up a few that I liked. At first I was thinking the first image, but now I'm leaning more towards the second. To start, the cape. It's the single largest item on the mini so I decided to go with blue. Now I'm not going to paint a sunset on it or anything, but I am thinking about a dark to light transition on it. I based it with the appropriately named Night Blue, but in the process discovered that it wasn't a good choice due to it being a bit transparent. Lesson learned for next time, but for now after many layers I have something to start from. And now, time to watch more football.
  21. Back when I posted my KD Survivor pinup I mentioned that these pinups were an exercise in learning how to handle the Scalecolor flesh set paints. The Survivor was not actually the first pinup that I painted though, it was the Twilight Knight. She sat on my shelf of shame 95% done until I decided to finish her up earlier this week. She just needed hair and a base so it made for an easy project. Back when I was trying to decide what color scheme I wanted to paint her in I decided to use twilight colors and used the images below to set my pallet. All of the pinups have a card that comes with them, but I thought her dark stock scheme was a little boring. I know some people might say it's a little too vibrant but hey, she at least stands out from a lot of the other KD minis you'll find out there. The metals are just simple shaded metallics and the base is a bag o crap selection that I had lying around. She's still not sealed because it won't stop raining, but eventually she'll get some dull cote to knock the shine down on her cape. Come to think of it, has anyone other than aku-chan posted their Twilight Knight? You know your journey as a mini painter is not complete until you have painted one. Just look at that face. It says paint me!
  22. As the title says, this thread is all about Kingdom Deaths plastic pin-up set. With Twilight Knight and Forsaker already finished, meet the remaining girls:- Since I don't batch-paint very well, I'm working on one at a time, starting with Survivor:- At this point all I've done is basecoat her skin with a 1:1 mix of Vallejo Dwarf Skin/ Flat Flesh and given it a wash of Vallejo Flesh Shade.

    Kingdom Death: Savior 40 yrs

    I forgot to post this one. It's Kingdom Death's savior 40 years. Unlike most of their sculpts, this one has real clothes! And a really intense expression. I love this sculpt! I decided to go with some complementary colors, initially purple/yellow, but it morphed a bit into blue/orange. Enjoy! C&C always welcome!
  24. Here's the Relic Knight sculpted by Yannick Hennebo for Kingdom Death which I just finished painting, and I got some great advice in this thread so a thank you goes to the wise men and women who chimed in there. I painted the mini to represent one of the characters in our Pathfinder game (together with the two previous ones I did, Thula and Fidrak). This crazy cat is Tyrax the Slayer, a young man with the blood of a red dragon pumping through him. The thing with this guy is that he will, as he levels up, take on more and more draconic properties; soon (at level 2) he will be able to grow claws, and later on he will get wings, natural armor and breath weapons coming out of every which orifice (he will take the Dragon Disciple prestige class if you're in to Pathfinder). I'm not sure how well you can see it in my photos, but I painted the right hand (which is clawed) to be undergoing draconic transformation. My thought with the mini is that he was perhaps hiding his transformed hand in those bandages, but he is exposed, or something just pisses him off, and he decides to let rip. A mad grin on his mouth, he whips out his sword and shakes his claw free, as pure draconic power erupts like bubbling scars across his skin... To be honest, I'm not... completely happy with the results I got here. The problem I see is that his hair and the cloak are almost the same color, and this is due to me not thinking things through enough. The cloak was basecoated in Mahogany Brown, and then shaded with Blackened Brown and Walnut Brown, followed by highlighting with Chestnut Brown and Rust Brown. The problem was that the exposed highlight areas were so enormous compared to the tight folds where the shades were, so it ended up quite a bit more orange than I had intended. I still think he looks pretty cool though, and I don't have it in me to start over, so he will just have to do. In retrospect, I do think a stronger color scheme would have been a flowing red cloak paired with raven-black hair. Next time! Anyway, hope you like him!

    Kingdom Death Survivor Pinup

    One of my January painting goals was to branch out and paint a mini from a company that I had yet to paint a mini from. I chose the Kingdom Death hard plastic pinups in part to see how well their assembly goes and in part to see how durable the hard plastic they're using is. Another goal I had was to try something new, which for January was the Scale75 flesh paint set. For anyone interested in the details you can get them in my WIP. Of course, we're now into February and I've pretty much set the same goals for myself. This time the something new was attempting to paint marble. I ended up going with a white marble with blue-grey and ocher veins. I like how it looks from above, but my freehand on the backside didn't turn out as well. First the 360 view: From above the gold mask and my attempt at "natural" reddish-brown hair: And a few views of how the marbleizing effect turned out. And last a bonus closeup. She was a fun mini to paint. I'll have to find the time to work through the rest of the box, but first I have a quick and easy mini primed and ready to go.
