Dark Paints the Dwarf Statue of Ancient Times

Recommended Posts

This was sculpted by Admiral over at Chaos Dwarfs online (he's ebaying copies in the event anyone is interested).  This is on a 40mm base, and is the "fire" version.  The other version is dismembering a goblin (not my thing, but both sets come with the Golem).  This was a "speed" paint, taking only about 5 hours, including the glow effect.  I could push it further, but I stopped when I thought it looked right to my eye.  The base is 40mm using cork with a Happy Seppuku base over it into Procreate.  The lava is liquitex matte medium layered until the base texture was less visible.

 

The white dots on the staff and that show up on the arm are not there in real life, not sure what the camera was doing, but otherwise this is exact to real life.

Very cool! I like the lighting effects; and the idea of a statue that is a flame conduit is pretty nifty! I really like it, and may have to try something like that...

Given that Hashut is the god of Fire and Darkness, and the dwarves' natural affinity for stone, I thought this very fitting.  And please, do try that.  I've been following your blog and your bones blog for a while now and I think you could pull it off very nicely!

Since you seem to like the Big Hat style Chaos Dwarfs...

Actually, Xherman, I have found them already (I have 20 more to paint, per goblin math).  The chaos dwarves I painted before come from the Dwarves of Fire Canyon line.  They are really nice sculpts, and Rozmax has really done a great job on them.

Cool!

 

I had seen that post, but didn't realise these were from that line...

 

So they really fit in well...

With the right paint job, they do.  They have a lot in common with the Forge World ones, it's just that they have hats rather than masks and more variety to their equipment (thank goodness!).

 

They fit in well either as they are with the classic line (although the poses do present some challenges when it comes to lining them up in ranks).

Very nicely painted!

I like the 'statue that is also a flamethrower' idea quite a bit; good call on that one!

      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.
