Yet Another Archer; A Kobold; A Tank; and some Fighter Plane Tokens

The archer is another one to go with some of the previous bowmen. I hope to get a small painted unit of them by the time this is over. He is an old GW plastic.

This guy just sorta got slopped with what ever color was left over after painting some of the other things. He was the use up the  paint miniature. I think his legs are haldardier tabard red from last month's batch of halberd guys. Boots are kobold basecoat brown.

 

The Kobold is a bonesium version, white plastic, 77010.

I mixed faded purple with some lighter color —fire orange maybe— to get the brown for his basecoat. It did not cover the archer's shoes very well. Later he got drowned in brown liner. The tip of his spear is the same copper that was used to damp brush highlights onto the tank.

 

The tank and the fighter tokens are 1:1200 scale resin models from Spartan Games.

The basecoat on the tank is kolbold basecoat brown with a lot of brown liner mixed in because it wanted to dry out too soon. Later some pure brown liner got shoved into the deep places and kinda blended in. Then bronzey highlights.

 

The airplane tokens are responsible for the archer's dingy blue tunic. First paint on them was Black Ink on the edges. Then they got a top coat of Sky Blue, avoiding the tops of the planes (archer got the left overs). Then the then planes got dabbed with metallic either silver or bronze. Then the edges got some silver to pick out the girder work. The final step was to wash them with Blue Liner. I was trying to get some edging and shadows under the planes. I needed to experiment on some of these. I have boat loads of these for the  game they are from.

      Started working on this guy today for one of my player.
      Since I'm a "newbie" and have no experience in working with skin, I was wondering if Reaper's Flesh Wash would look ok with the Elf Flesh base-coat for the skin.
       
      For the hair, the player want him to be carrot-top with a touch of grey. The could prove to be interesting. 
       
      I'm also looking for suggestions for his clothing. almost anything is fair game, all though the campaign setting is in a desert/desolation area.

      Hi All,
      Ever since I saw this design in the Kickstarter, I really liked her a lot, and when they made her in metal, I had to get her.  Of course between now and then many months have gone by but I've finally gotten her painted, together with some other hobgoblins I've been working on.  When I read the Monster Manual for coloring it said "their faces are bright red-orange to red", so for whatever reason I omitted the red part and just went orange.  I think she came out in any case reasonably well though.

       
      I don't work very often with multiple-piece models, and with this chicky poo, I had to attach the hand and bow to her arm.  Previously I've always attached pieces at the beginning, but this time finally listened to my reasonable nerd self and kept that piece separate, and attached it after the rest of the model was painted.  I had previously painted the hand when I painted her skin elsewhere, but then attached the hand and bow and ended up priming and painting the bow after everything else was ready to go and that seemed to work out pretty well.

      The hardest color choice I had on her actually was her bandana. Yellow was a last resort, don't know if it would have been better another color? Anyway, hope you enjoy her!
