  1. The Stygian Depths - Lost Temple of Xibalba, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/524168246/the-stygian-depths-lost-temple-of-xibalba
  2. I picked this fellow out of my increasingly vast collection because I figured he would be a simple speed-paint while I work on a more involved multi-piece project and, hey, who doesn't need a cultist on their shelf? He was finished in two short sessions, yay! I ended up liking this guy a lot more than I was expecting with such a simple subject and painting approach; I guess I'm learning to appreciate more subtle color palates as time goes on. I think I'll be picking up the Reaper bones cultists (with circle) to give him some buddies. Painted primarily with the dark elf skin, dusky skin, and vampyric skin triads, with nightmare black (one of my all time favorite colors) for good measure. I was going for a dark and generic color palate, but I wanted his skin to have a creepy pallor to reflect his life in the shadows. Comments are always appreciated Full disclosure: I edited a single white pixel in one photo that was bugging me. not sure what it was, it wasn't on the mini itself....

    Jade Salamander sculpt and paint

    Hi all, Here is the painted version of the sculpt I did for the Jade Salamander, a 60mm tall brute of the lizardman made in FIMO classic. It is all cast up in resin now for the ShadowSea game and is currently going out to backers of the Rise of the Draconids kickstarter. The painted version was done with many washes and glazes of inks and transparent paints, followed by opaque paints for highlights. The sword was metallics and inks.

    Nautiloid speed paint

    Here is a Nautiloid Chrysalid for DeepWars done in some fast washes, a bit of blending and edge highlights to finish quickly. The shell was two two main colors over a white primer, Burnt Sienna ink (Liquitex) and then when dry, Pthalo Blue ink. The inks on the shell were applied in washes, so covering everything and moderately thick, mixed with Liquitex matter medium and a bit of water to give better flow. The tentacles were Pthalo Blue ink wash, with A Dioxazene Purple wash near the "face". Then the face and thin tentacles got a wash of Magenta ink. Highlights were added with a bit of white mixed with the ink, and some Cerulean Blue ink for the blue, and magenta for the purple areas. After highlights, a glaze of blue ink was added to the big tentacles to help enhance the shadows near the face. The eyes were Indian Yellow (Golden Fluid Acrylics), highlighted with white mixed in. The base had washes of blue, green, sienna and umber ink with a bit of drybrushing with Reaper MSP Golden Highlight. The shell got Golden Highlight on the edges also, and on barnacles. The Weapon was gold with a wash of Pthalo Blue ink, then a glaze of Burn Sienna (just a bit), then highlighted with Reaper shining gold and silver. Some Sap Green ink was added around barnacles and encrusting growth. For gaming figures like this with a lot of texture, using washes and then doing edge highlights is very effective as much of the blending occurs from the washes. The basic highlights on the tentacles were done quickly almost like drybrushing, especially on the suckers. It is still important to do some edge highlights though, using almost pure white, to add contrast and define the parts. The crystal on the weapon, for example, was just a wash of blue ink and white lines on the facet edges. Simple and quick.
  5. Here are some painted Dark Mariners done using the basic glaze style of painting using inks and translucent paint, followed by highlights using opaque paint. This style is very effective for anything with scales and surface texture. This was a set of gaming-level figures, so painting them in an efficient way was critical, something that the glaze style really helps with. A couple were already started, but overall, this was a weekend's work, so not too long. They key, as always with the glaze style, is to shadow with contrasting colored inks. In this case, the shell is a burnt Sienna over white primer, making a nice orange color, then it was shaded with dark blue ink and some black paint. Then finally, a bit more burnt sienna ink to bring the orange back out on the highlights. The encrusting sea growth was given a glaze of Sap Green ink, a very nice forest green color. Then everything was touched up with bone and white on the edges and barnacles.

    The Smattering

    Here is a smattering of gaming minis painted with washes and glazes for DeepWars and ShadowSea. The metallics in the first photo are started in either gold or bronze with a light coating so the white primer shows through in highlight areas. The metals were then washed with blur/green ink to make shadows, and in some, given a glaze of burnt sienna to bring back some bright color. Then they were highlighted with gold+silver, with more highlight used for "cleaner" metal while the more dingy metal had in mainly on the edges. Finally, extra biofouling color was added with Sap green ink. The jellyfish mech was a little different in that more green ink was used on the armor, and the white area was glazed with turquoise ink + matte medium only. Some very fine amounts of black paint were added to some cracks, but the goal was to make that section as bright as possible. When dry, the white plates were highlighted with thinned white paint, with edges in pure white. Eric www.antimatter-games.com

    Dire Fish-Lizard

    Hi all, Up from the depths comes the Dire Fish-Lizard. I sculpted this a while back and it was good to finally be able to paint it properly. This one was almost entirely done with ink washes and glazes, with edge highlights using opaque paint to finish it up. This one will be going into a painting guide that was part of the latest Kickstarter for ShadowSea/DeepWars (Rise of the Draconids) to show the glaze technique for painting scaly beasts. http://antimatter-games.com/games/draconids-pledge

    Giant Anglerfish

    Hi all, Here is another one I just finished, the Giant Anglerfish. I also sculpted it, but I'm just going to show the painting steps. To simplify things, any inks referred to in the text are Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks, and the matte medium is by Liquitex also. White and Black paint is Americana Brand. So, step one is the ubiquitous zenith priming, with black first, then white at an off angle from above, maybe about 60 degrees up (30 deg from nadir). It takes some practice to get the right amount of coverage and the highlights doing this, but it makes washes and glazes easier to apply and get a good result quickly. The next step is to apply base coats with thinned opaque paint, and by that I mean things like most hobby paints created for coverage. They should be thinned to a light cream consistency. For the body, Vallejo Game Color "Hot Orange" was used. The teeth were given a coat of Americana Desert Sand (cheap but effective paint). Th mouth was given a light coat of purple ink mixed with Desert Sand. The fins, eye and lure were given a light coat of Cerulean Blue ink, which is more like a thin opaque paint than a transparent ink. Everything was left to dry fully before the next step. The next step was to make the bold red base color. This was done with Napthol Crimson ink, after which it was left to dry fully. Next, the rad was darkened with Golden Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Red, a very transparent red with very dark and bold color, mixed with various amounts of black, matte medium and water. This step involved some wet blending to give a bit of transition. It took a few applications of the paint, letting it dry in between, to get the dark shadow area on the cheek. The teeth were given a wash of black + purple ink + Desert Sand. Again, everything was allowed to dry fully. It may help to have a fan nearby. The next step is something that may be called "ugly" as it is a rough drybrush of VGC Hot Orange all over the body, with some stippling to make an irregular skin pattern. Now back to "pretty" again, with a glaze of Quinacridone Red to even out the drybrushing, and then highlights added all over the body with Hot Orange, mixed in some places with a bit of Reaper Golden Highlight. Here, some of the creases and cracks are highlighted on the bottom edge to make them look like they are illuminated from above. The lights were the focus of this step. They were fist given a light coat of Cerulean Blue ink, then highlighted with a mix of white and blue ink. More highlights were added to the body here also. Glow from the lure was added to the head with a glaze of Cerulean Blue ink, "scrubbed" around with the brush to make it a bit irregular. The fins were glazed with Dioxazine Purple ink. Now, to finish things off, the lights were highlighted some more with pure white, thinned so it went on smoothly and could be applied in layers. The fins were given a wash of thin Hot Orange near where they join the body. Then the whole fins were brushed with purple ink mixed with white paint. The teeth were given multiple layers if white, mixed with a touch of Cerulean Blue ink, while the inside of the mouth was given light glazes of pink, shadows with washes of black paint, then some more highlights with pink. The eye was done by painting a light gray iris, then applyign multiple layers of thinned white to make it look hazy, then adding the reflections with pure white paint. When dry, more glazes of white were added over to smooth it out. Some edge highlights were applied to the body with Cerulean Blue + white to make the source lighting effect. The base was painted with a drybrush of Desert Sand. When dry, it was given a wash of Turquoise Ink then let to dry. Then it was washed with Burnt Sienna ink, with some Magenta ink here and there, and then given a glaze of Burnt Sienna and Turquoise ink mixed together (a greenish hue). This was allowed to dry fully, then white highlights were added. Now, here is a size comparison of the anglerfish with the nautiloid and a little Clal-Chk bug man (still close to 35mm tall). The other figures would make a nice snack for the anglerfish.
