I'm working on painting a tribe of wolf people and this is the second guy I've completed (first one here). This is also the first custom base that I've made.
Funny side note: Early on in painting this guy I posted on the works in progress board asking for opinions on what is hanging on his foot. The conclusion that we came to was that it was some kind of buckle which apparently the sculptor of this piece (Werner Klocke) is obsessed with. As I kept painting I definitely started noticing the abundance of buckles across the various leather straps. It just made me laugh every time I discovered a new one.
Anyway comments, suggestions, and criticisms welcome! Thanks!
(Note: I actually started these a while back, though they are not done yet. This is a bit less of a WIP thread than a how-I-got-here-so-far thread, which I will update as I get my old pictures organized. Questions and comments and critiques are, as always, welcome.)
Last summer Bad Squiddo Games hosted a brief Kickstarter, "My Last Sunrise," of an assortment of Gothic horror minis centered around vampires. These two stood out to me as a little beyond the Hammer horror ethos of most of the other figures. While I was painting them I thought of them as "Feral Vampires," although when I just rechecked they are called "Vampire Thralls."
I dunno. They don't look very thrall-like to me.
Their tag line in the Kickstarter was "Float about in my night dress cooing for scraps? No way. I hunt my own meal."
Anyhow, they have a fun, odd, lady pirate or highwayman look.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
This is a slight deviation from how I prime figures. Normally I prime them with Titanium White (which I did here) and then wash over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These I wanted kind of cold-looking, so I washed them with a cold dark grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
That's them on the left. For a while I was including Bad Squiddo's "Dracula" in the photos, so you get a free peek at that too.
And as per usual, the first thing I did was their skin. In contrast to the skin of living humans, I have been painting vampire skin in stark black-and-white mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. The very first layer is thinned Titanium White, then pale shadows of the lightest grey.
Hi all and happy new year!
Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter. The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley. Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on.
and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher:
Anyhow, really enjoyed painting these figures, loads of fun, full of personality and a good hefty size. And they're metal, which is another plus for me!
I'm painting a Rageclaw Warrior and I'm trying to figure out what this thing is. He has a leather strap wrapped around one of his hind legs and there's something hanging off it. Can anyone tell what it is? It's a package or a letter maybe? I don't know what color to paint it.
