Stone Golems :: Marvel Team Up :: Interactive WIP

Recommended Posts

Been staring at the Bones Stone Golems, 77171, and wondering what to do with them.

 

Ran ideas around and round ... starting with the Jade Golem from vulture ... pulled some greens to consider as well as other alternate colors for golems.

 

Onyx, Jade, Rudy, Topaz ... gem stones?

 

Hmmm.

 

Rock. Rock facets. So I start looking about the Interwebs for how to paint the worn rock edging. I pull up stone golem images and I run across:

 

Ben Grimm, The Thing.

 

And I recall how my group refers to miniatures. We always compare them to various media figures, so why not start there.

 

I present to you, Three Marvel Golems:

  • The Thing
  • The Hulk
  • TBD

The last one ... I'm looking for a solid-colored, "massive" Marvel character. Colossus, perhaps? Or can I just represent Captain America? Or go with "strength" and make a "Thor" sans cape?

 

Throw down your thoughts. I plan to start with The Thing. Suggestions on techniques to get the best version of Thing's orange rock feel are welcome.

 

Thanks, T

colossus from X-men would be mu suggestion.

 

For Ben, I would begin with oiled leather mixed with a bit of yellow and shade up and down from there. In the comics, and the movies he doesn't seem to have a very textured appearance, so smooth transitions and colour would probably work

I was going to paint the forces of nature earth elemental as the Thing :)

 

Maybe Crimson Dynamo? If Hulk turns out good you could do Red Hulk.

Here's the start of

TheThing!

I did get his upper half done as well as his hands. Sadly, my phone ran out of juice.

 

Off to bed. More tomorrow.

I put "evil Hulk" in a search engine. Got this: http://marvel.com/universe/Red_Hulk

 

So there you go: Orange, Green, Red.

Red Hulk was initially considered and is an obvious color choice.

 

Orka

http://marvel.wikia.com/Orka_(Earth-616)

 

Juggernaut

Thanos

Grey Gargoyle

 

I also considered Juggernaut (Brown), Thanos (Slate Gray to Blue) and Grey Gargoyle (Light Gray)

 

You could go "obscure DC characters" and do Strata >.>

 

Wow, that's about as obscure as it gets.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was really hoping to stick to Heroes so Colossus is currently ahead.

 

I know he's not HUGE like the aforementioned but perhaps Captain America? He's mostly Blue and I could paint the accessories on the golem red and white.

 

Keep the suggestions coming.

 

Here's a couple of pics of where I ended last night:

Red Hulk is kind of a hero now, in Thunderbolts with Elektra, Deadpool, Spiderman and Punisher.

I've recently gotten back into reading comics, the Marvel Now stuff has some really nice books going.

 

Edit - Ben is looking awesome! I love super hero paint jobs on non-super hero minis ever since the RPG challenge.

 

Another edit - given the angularity, I'm not sure it would work for Cap, though the iconic color scheme would sell it well. I bet one of the more angular marks of Iron Man suits would look cool.

Wow, I really need to catch up on my Marvel lore ... um ... Spidey has a machine gun!

 

I knew about the recent title change (Superior Spider-man) from the story arc about Octavius and Parker.

 

Amusingly, I just watched the Ultimate Spider-man on Disney where Deadpool appears last week. Show amuses me and my son endlessly. *Monkey Squeak!*

 

Red Hulk, Iron Man, Juggernaut = rust red golem for the win!

 

Anyone want to send me a fourth? Then I'll do a Colossus/Thanos/Grey Gargoyle - gray golem. We'll prolly call him Colossus but I'll rep the rest as well. :blues:

Thunderbolts spidey is pretty cool...but the Superior Spiderman is really, really good (spoiler: Doc Ock is spider man). My favorite books right now are probably Hawkeye, Deadpool, Superior Spiderman and Thor (all Marvel Now versions).

I used to subscribe to all of the Spider-man titles. Got to be a bit expensive.

 

They lost me during the Parker Clone storyline.

 

I am a Norse mythology buff so Thor was always a favorite. I hear Deadpool is hilarious but have never read one.

 

And then there was the Hulk. Again too many story lines to catch up on but always enjoy a random Hulk comic.

      I picked up an airbrush kit on sale back in November. It came with two brushes, a compressor, and some other stuff.
       
      Here is a picture:

       
      The brush that I have been using mostly so far is the Badger Patriot 105. I say mostly because I have sprayed paint through it more than once, lol. I started with the bottom fed one (the 350) for one sitting of like 30 minutes, then tried another sitting with the 105 for like 30 minutes.
       
      I have since used the 105 for something like three sittings of 30-60 minutes. My total airbrush experience is something like 2.5 hours plus another 1.5 hours of cleaning and practice assembly.
       
      I have primarily just tried primers. The latest attempt has been applying Vallejo Surface Primer (black) to some of the graveyard set, namely the crypt and the fencing.
       
      Here are those results (minus a rogue golem arm that missed being airbrushed until I cleaned up and was later brushed with the same color in order to prevent having to clean the airbrush for one piece):

       
      I am thinking that I might try and use my Dwarven Forge paints to make this match the Dungeon terrain I have, but am not sure yet...and if I do go that route, would it be better to go with my typical dry rush route or should I be trying to apply colors on top of this with the airbrush? Or is there a different approach that I should be taking?

      Just a quick paint job I did a few months back.
      I am still trying to learn True Metallic Metal technique.
      Based on the pictures, I still have learning left to do.
      There are some dilute black, blue, brown, and flesh colored washes in there.
      His close up of his face reminds me of Ultron.
      He is set to be a construct for our Reign of Winter Pathfinder campaign.
       
      Enjoy.  C&C Welcome, as well as any advice or recipes for TMM would be appreciated.

      I started this guy last winter sometime so I figured it was time to finish him up. I used the Thanksgiving paint binge to accomplish this. I wanted to imply that he was made from slightly fresher parts, so I used several different flesh tones on him, then washed/drybrushed/weathered him to look a little grungy/rotten.
       
      Painted for tabletop; let me know what you think.

      Thought this guy would be a fun, quick paint, but turned into a tedious, long pain. Definitely not my best work but was trying new things mainly with metallics and OSL. As I went along, there were some things I wanted to experiment with so I did that at the expense of details, smooth highlights, etc. 
       
      Really only intended it to be seen from the front (first pic), but as soon as I took pictures a thousand things popped up I could do better.
       
      Anyway, here you go, and if you would like to tell me how you’d do it with these color light sources, please do.
