Iron Kindom's Ogrun Adventurer

Recommended Posts

Finally got this guy done. Started this guy a little over 4 weeks ago, and is the only thing I've finished this summer which is a shame.

 

I really spent a lot of time on the face this time around, wanted to make sure that it looked good as that's generally the focal point of a miniature. Also tried out some MM painting techniques when doing NMM and I like the effect but it's a real pain to do. The armor looks a lot better then when I started, you can check to original in my WIP thread, as I learned some better highlighting techniques at Gencon this year (thanks to Rhonda and Wren for those).

 

The only part that I'm disappointed in is the base as the pigments I ordered have been sitting in processing limbo for 10 days and I was worried about using paints with the bricks I was using so I'm going to have to wait to finish that once the pigments ship.

 

As always C&C is welcome. Click for huge picture.

Beautiful. Your basing caught my eyes at first and then the subtle colors all around him. Unlike other warrior types,

somehow I thought he would have the scent of roses with light touch of iron, and red rose petals would fly in the air

when he swings his weapon. His face looks nice. His polearm(?) could benefit from a little more highlight maybe..?

Excellent work over all. : )

Thanks you two.

 

@obsidian I spent maybe 30 hours on him and I'm sure if you spent that much time on something it would look great too. The downside is I really only have one miniature painted over the past 3 months so it's what you want to get out of the hobby I guess.

 

@evergrin The NMM does need some improvement but that will just come with me doing more. You're comment about petals made me realize a little bit of leaves or petals on the base is what he's missing.

Man, he looks top notch! The blending are super smooth and the NMM are excellent, especially on the shoulder armor plates. It’s easy to see you’ve been spending a lot of time on it. I'm not familiar with the MM technique, can you give more details about it?

 

I have to say the Samurai concept is a nice idea too. I recently have the chance to see part of the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller’s Samurai collection at a museum. It was very informative and a real pleasure for the eyes.

 

I have a riddle for you! What does a Samurai do during times of peace?

Here's the article on MM painting, it's fairly well known.

 

He prepares for war.

 

He stoled my line.

Inspirational work as always!!! You're blending is just so good, and your effort on the face really shows! I personally like the look of the metal on his weapons, so don't mess with it too much. ::):

      My latest completion. Although Gunnbjorn is a warlock for the Hordes table top game, I'm actually going to be using him in my current Pathfinder game as a replacement for the upcoming big bad. As always any C&C are most welcome, especially tips for improvement. I also apologize for the photo quality, still trying to figure things out with the new camera phone -- and I wasn't particularly technologically inclined to begin with.   Also I know I should have done more with his assorted bags, but frankly, was starting to get a bit "done" with him. Perhaps I will go back later and add to them.
       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      I paint a lot of Privateer Press models because I play their games, but only post those I really enjoy to this forum.
       

       
      These porcine ladies were tons of fun to paint up.  Much of the model was suitable for directional highlighting + inks, or basecoat + wash, which gave me lots of time to work on the fun parts: the hair.  And boy do these girls have lots of it.
       
      I also shot them against a different background, which I thought I'd post since the whole photo just gives a different feel.

      While I really like the arch-angel min with its sleek draconic musculature, this one is the mini that made me squee.  I was super excited when I saw this one.  I mean, the little shredders are super fun minis already, but a gargantuan based on them is such a great idea.  I mean, he's super huge, and still mostly mouth!
      I was super excited that I had the change to paint him up.

      Finally got around to finishing up Ragnor Skysplitter by Privateer Press. Available in the Trollblood Starter Box for Hordes.
       

       

       

       
      Not my best work, but just reached the point where I needed to move on, and there are some parts that I really like.  As always, any C&C would be most welcome!
       
      Cheers,

      While not really themed, all these minis were left over from my other projects.  I think they'll all find a home in "Tesrora, the City That Can't Be Tamed", the fantasy ganglands campaign I'm working on for this year.


       
       
      Ametrine Earthlyte, Dwarf Alchemist.  A recent Reaper 25th Anniversary miniature.
       

       
      A rude Dwarf Thug.  I started on him to go with RPE's "Dwarf Veterans Warband" as a thug.

      Converted from the Avatars of War Berserkers, Mantic Dwarf Bear-thing riders, and an old Mordheim club.




      I realize I couldn't directly post most of the shots of the Orc Matron per forum rules, so linked to my FB shots instead.
