  1. I have a very large collection of Kingdom Death models. I think they're absolutely gorgeous and they are generally in an art style that I adore. Unfortunately, though I've continued buying them, I have not painted a single one. It's been a combination of fear of assembling them (they're notoriously fiddly - this model was in 8 pieces) and a fear of painting them because they're such beautiful figures and they're expensive as well, so there's added pressure tacked onto messing them up. So I decided that it was time to face my fears and get one painted. Since this particular figure is one that I have accidentally purchased 3 times (if you've never bought figures from the Kingdom Death shop before - they are put out in small batches that often sell out within minutes, so to get everything that you want, it's unfortunately very easy to accidentally re-purchase things you've gotten before because you don't have time to check) I figured it wouldn't be the end of the world if I messed her up. I've been working on her for a few days now. First of all, it took me 3 evenings to get her prepped and assembled. The first night, I clipped her from the sprue and worked on cleaning up mold lines (which I didn't do a fantastic job of and is really something that I have got to work on improving) the second night, I had to make a store run to buy plastic cement. This was my first hard plastic figure and I have heard countless times that it's best to use the plastic cement for them rather than superglue, but I didn't have any. Unfortunately, assembly didn't go well and I quit halfway through out of frustration. I thought that the difference between the Testors red label tube plastic cement and the Testors red label square bottle with the applicator was just that one had an applicator and one did not. Turns out the square bottle is liquid and the tube one is gel and the gel one sets up faster and was therefore easier for me to use. So I was able to finish assembly on the third night. Unfortunately, I had melted the plastic in some places and left gaps, so I had to do some repair work with some Bondic. If you're not familiar with Bondic, it is a liquid plastic in a tube that cures with a little UV light. It's great for quick and dirty gap filling. It probably wasn't the best thing for this particular application, if I'm being honest, because all it does is gap fill flat without any sort of texture buildup. I probably should have used some greenstuff, but I hate messing with greenstuff. So there are problem spots on her where there's some weird texture and it kinda just is what it is at this point and I'm ok with that. The following 2 nights were spent "priming" her with Brown Liner (spray primer is not an option for me and brush on primer was not sticking to her) and then I started in on her skin, painted her eyes (they are TINY and also half closed,) her tongue and her hair. The skin still needs some touch up here and there but this is the absolute happiest I have ever been with a skintone I've painted. It was a lot of very, very sloooooow layering working back and forth between shades with paint that was thinned nearly to a glaze consistency and then smoothed over with a glaze of the midtone. Her skin is varying mixes between MSP Chestnut Brown, MSP Golden Shadow, MSP Golden Skin, and working all the way up to MSP Golden Highlight. The pictures are washing out the highlights a bit. Her eyes were done with Warcolours One Coat Beige, Warcolours One Coat Blue, and Warcolours One Coat Black. Her tongue was a basecoat of MSP Rusty Red, then some MSP Blush Pink added in, then some Golden Skin mixed in for the highlight. Her hair was a basecoat of Warcolours Turquoise 3, then shaded with Warcolours Marine 4, then highlighted with Warcolours Turquoise 2, MSP Spectral Glow, and a final touch of MSP Spectral Glow with a bit of MSP Ghost White mixed in.
  2. KDM: White Lion

    So taken a few pic of this guy as I was painting him, started out priming black airbrush pre shading white, then painted the whole thing in brown before changing my mind and going this direction. That was the shadows and blending, then I did some yellow highlights on the back and mane, and detail on the face. Not sure if I'm done, maybe a bit more blending on the stomach, I think it's showing a bit too much blue.
  3. The dragon king is a very majestic mini. Like most Kingdom Death minis, he's exquisitely detailed, and simply oozes character. In addition, he's also large enough that it is hard to get a photograph of him that keeps everything in focus. I was very happy to have a chance to paint him up. I got to do a lava face base for him (something that I'll probably do something like this on my own Dragon King when I get around to painting him up). But enough words:
  4. Started on these this week, thought I'd throw them up before I went to bed. C&C always appreciated, especially on the antelope, I'm having a hard time think what I could do to improve it, but I think it was too easy to get it looking that good. Underside of the antelope is still a wip, BIGTIME, I've barely started on it. I mean the gorey sinewy muscle for the tips to make better. KDM story spoilers ahead...
  5. Disciple of the Flower Witch

    Presenting a Disciple of the Flower Witch (there's five of them but I'm not sure which number this one is), a mysterious denizen of the Kingdom Death world. She's also in my Kingdom Death WIP thread. Not too happy with this one, it turned out to be a much trickier mini to paint than I thought and as a result she's rather rough in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  7. Screaming Antelope

    Started assembling this guy, the horn got glued on wrong so I had to separate it and reposition. Still going to greenstuff the gaps but got these pics to check the positioning of the horn.
  8. Survivor Zachary, assembled, green stuff'd, primed in white, base flesh tone and hair, and skin wash. Working on the eyes now, he's not supposed to look like batman.
  9. Rawhide Survivors

    In the aftermath of the Great Void War, humanity adopted the moniker 'Survivors' to describe themselves. It sadly proved to be a very apt description as the world had forever changed, and life had become one long struggle to survive. As it is virtually impossible for an ordinary Survivor to travel too far from their settlement, each is reliant on whatever resources are close at hand. While these primitive Survivors could be considered lucky that there is no exotic and dangerous flora or fauna in their vicinity that would require them to innovate better weapons and armour, it is only a matter of time before a wandering Void Entity discovers them. When it does, their basic bone and hide armorments will offer little protection. My band of Rawhide Survivors consists of:- Guy with a Bone Sickle and a Rawhide Whip. Girl with Bone Dagger and Bone Darts. Guy in a Skull Helm with a Bone Axe. And finally, Girl in a Skull Helm with a Bone Blade. I'm not great at batch painting, so I tried to keep these fairly simple to stop me getting fed up of working on them, despite that I think they ended up looking pretty decent. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  10. If you've seen my other posts here, you know I normally work on larger scale figures. But recently I took on a commission to paint the 28mm version of Kingdom Death's White Speaker. I actually painted the 54mm version a few years back, so I thought it'd be an interesting exercise to see how I could do on the 28mm one. So far my focus has been on the skin. The other sections just have some dark undercoats. I played around with my mixes a bit on this one. I started by base coating her with a 2:1 mix of Rosy Shadow and Bronzed Shadow. I then used a 4:1 mix of Chestnut Brown and Rosy Shadow to create the darkest shadows. From there I worked up to a 3:1 mix of Rosy Skin and Bronzed Skin and finally added in Fair Highlight for the brightest parts. Although she's a female figure, I still went for a more dramatic contrast range and brought out some of the muscles more than I might on a different female subject. This one is a badass warrior, so she should be pretty fit.
  11. So a couple of months ago I based and primed a handful of Kingdom Death minis, to paint when I'm stuck on other things, and put them away. Now it's time to open the box... The front row is 4 Rawhide Survivors, plus 2 special Survivors (Paul and the Sun Maiden). The middle row are the 5 Flower Witch Disciples. And the back row are the Flower Knight (I will finish you one day) and the Kings Hand. I took the Rawhide Survivors and a Witch Disciple out of the box. The male Survivors skin was painted up with Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Flesh > 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh. The female Survivors skin was done with 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > 1:1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh/Light Flesh. Witch Disciple 1 (I don't actually know which Witch is which, so this might not be the real Disciple 1), only got a basecoat of 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh and a Flesh Wash, I want to at least attempt to paint her eyes and it's easiest before I finish her skin, but I'm on my last brush and it ain't too pointy no more. So that's got to wait until I have new brushes. So at the moment I'm just basecoating my Survivors. They've got Steel Blue dress thingys, Lonestar Leather on the hard leather parts and Bonewhite weapons and Skull Helms.
  12. Mr. Silence

    Presenting Mr. Silence, a special preview mini from Kingdom Death. He was originally a swordsman, but I didn't like how it looked with the sword (it's just kinda propped up in his right hand), so he's now a badass kung-fu master. There is a Mrs. Silence too, but she's somewhat more complex and time-consuming (and it doesn't help that I made a mess attaching her arms), so she'll be showing up in the future. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  13. so 93 this year, one less than 2015, but 20 more than last year. wierdly 3 large dragons were painted in each year three years. would have done less but went on a huge blitz of kingdom of death after getting the set in october. Mostly Bones - I did count the smaller dracolisk as one of my three dragons, but I did remove legs and re-sculpt. core villains from kingdom death - the Phoenix and final boss are not finished, and will take a while. Survivors, starting four on the right, gradually gaining better weapons and armor. the last one is built wearing armor made from the phoenix and antelope armor kits. unfinshed things & 3d printed terrain.
  14. Val Fails at Painting KDM

    The first of many survivors. I'm not entirely happy with eyes and skin, but I think my first attempt at OSL turned out pretty well.
  15. Fade, Kingdom Death

    Finished painting my Fade a while back, thought I'd share her here. She took a long time to finish, but taught me much about how to do skin. Reaper skin triads are the friggin' best! She isn't nude, but if the mods find her to be too NSFW, I'd be happy to hide the images behind links.
  16. Magically Distracted She sat on her favorite stool, having gotten mostly undressed and relaxed, gently swirling the goblet of red wine in her hand as she read through the grimore in her lap... closing her eyes she gently concentrated on the spell that was before her... suddenly the books piled around her lifted up in the air as if they had minds of their own and were caught in a small windstorm. She giggled to herself and took another long drink of the wine from her goblet and continued to study... --------------------- This was a really fun project that I started up in April of this year. My goal was to get her done in time for the 'eavier metal online contest (Facebook) and see if I could place or perhaps get a random draw. I ended up uploading her about 10 minutes late, so I have no idea at the time of doing this post if she will be considered in the contest or if she will be disqualified. Either way, I had fun, I had tons of amazing feedback during the WIP and a lot of people cheering me on to get it finished. I present to you "Magically Distracted" a NSFW Kingdom Death figure in the 54mm scale, she is a limited edition resin release. Please feel free to give your comments and critiques. I'm going to check and see if I am allowed to bring a nude figure to ReaperCon this year for entry into their painters contest or not. If not, she'll stay home as I do have plenty of other things to enter as well. A few firsts on this one, I did some elaborate tattoos, magical floating books, writing in books in freehand, a completely nude figure, texturing pattern, Venus dimples, and last but not least sheer stockings (which were a lot of fun and a lot of work!). First - pics that are SFW and then I'll post some NSFW links (special thanks to @Thrym for hooking me up with his site for hosting as Facebook links expire) and for helping me out with the really cool title placard). NSFW Links One Two Three Four Five ETA: Better pics after a bit of clean-up to the OSL and added red ink to the drink.
  17. The Butcher

    Presenting The Butcher from Kingdom Death. Sometimes, becoming a monster to fight monsters isn't a great idea... My quest to slowly chip away at my Kingdom Death mountain continues. I wish I could've done a better job on his various face trophies and lanterns, but overall I like how he looks. As always, any comments and criticisms are warmly received.
  18. One I painted just for video material and for funsies. I had this model kicking around for over 2 years, and I finally made the decision to paint it up. Working on improving my NMM still, and seem to making steps in the right direction. Nice model except for the assembly. I've been told that pictures showing an exposed buttocks aren't allowed. So, here's the links to said naked bottom pictures. http://i.imgur.com/w2SWpED.jpg http://i.imgur.com/jsuX4b4.jpg
  19. A Screaming Antelope

    Presenting a Screaming Antelope, a monster from the nightmare world of Kingdom Death. He's got a Work in Progress thread here. I'm not particularly fond of painting the monsters from Kingdom Death (they tend towards the minimalist, while I prefer things that are detail heavy), but now he's finished I rather like him. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  20. Percival

    Presenting Percival, a knight of renown from Kingdom Death. Not massively happy with the face on this one, I was trying to give her a very pale complexion but it didn't really work. I also could've done a better job on her hair (I was just very intimidated by it for some reason). I am pretty pleased with the rest of her though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  21. Just a quick upload of some pics of my converted flower witch to a Harold on burning chariot of tzeentch.
  22. Starting this one up as it now has my attention due to a contest on bookfarce by the 'eavier metal facebook group. This is Distracted by Kingdom Death, she's a 54mm 1st run collector's edition resin miniature that I couldn't pass up a while back when she was released for a very limited time. This figure is completely nude so she is definitely NSFW and I'll make sure to link any pics that would violate forum rules. Let's start off with the pic I can show! The NSFW pics that show the body parts - Front Side Side As I go along, I would like very honest and forthright comments and critiques to push me as she will be a contest entry and I may bring her to ReaperCon as well!
  23. The Manhunter

    Presenting the Manhunter, an evil slave trader from the Kingdom Death:- Monster game. I love the mini, it has such awesome textured skin, but he seems oddly out of place even in the weird and wacky world of Kingdom Death (I like to think he has actually wandered in from a different game). As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. The Twilight Ninja

    Presenting the Twilight Ninja from Kingdom Death, she was their special edition mini for last years Black Friday sale. I've had this one painted up for a little while, but I've been struggling to come up with a new photo setup (of course, the eventual solution was annoyingly simple). She's a little rough in places, I had to repaint bits of her bodysuit a few times too many, but I think she ended up looking pretty nifty. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
