Aku-chan paints... Belisarius Cawl

23 posts in this topic

Finally managed to make some progress:-

Larry the Skullbot and Cawls hood painted and attached!

Despite the fiddliness of the task, I'm glad I painted these parts separately. Painting Larry after attaching him would have been tough enough, but I think it is actually impossible to paint Cawls head fully assembled.

 

Next job will be to paint the rest of the already attached parts.

Very nice, I like the wide range of colours you have managed to use while keeping it all harmonized. Also lol @ Larry the Skullbot.

That bone color armor looks fantastic, and that model is stunningly complicated... they're approaching Malafaux levels of tiny bits and pieces.

Yeah, their minis are definitely starting to come in a lot of pieces (I picked up one of their new Dwarves the other week and, despite being one guy with a steam punk jet pack, he comes in 50 pieces with an assembly booklet), but they still seem easier to assemble than the average Malifaux mini (a goblin should not come in 12+ pieces!).

It's several layers of PVA glue painted with several coats of Vallejo Fluo Green.

There's probably a much less time consuming method out there, but I couldn't find it!

      Eldest digit is turning 10 in two weeks.  There will be a pathfinder party and I get to be the dungeon master.  I also get to prepare minis for the party.  While most will make characters a couple days before (end of next week), Indy the eldest wanted to make one this weekend.  Went with a female half-Orc ranger wielding a double axe.  Sounds fun, right?  Well, I don't seem to have a lot of double axe wielding minis. Actually have a prepainted one, but it is an Orc and he's definitely male, so that was out.  
       
      I figure I can convert an appropriate figure that's wielding a pole arm without too much trouble.  But it would have to have the right positioning for the weapon.  Came across Vernicia and Indy says, that's her.  It turns out I have this figure from years ago.  Pulled it out of the box of shame, primed black.  Here it looks after dusting it off pre cutting.
       
       
      cut the standby end off and made a point out of what was left of the shaft.  Also found a couple of prepainted orkz to remove axe heads from.  They are big and ridiculous so they'll be perfect!
       

       
      drilled out the shaft end of the plastic axe heads a little to give them a chance to hold onto the sharpened shaft and applied super glue.  Also glued to a base at this point.  Then hit the whole thing with a heavy drybrush of white primer.
       
       
      And did a quick paint all in one night.  Left it on the table and we will see what the reaction is in the morning.  I think she turned out pretty good.  What do you think?

      Hey guys been away for a while with a severe illness however am slowly getting back on the horse through much pestering by a dear friend! I have painted a Black reach Ork warboss in Evil sunz colours and added small details to his surroundings. Using milliput I made vines with venus fly trap heads! also added a couple of skaven mini rats to the base! I hope you like my submission and as always comments are welcomed and gladly received!

      Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama.  Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756.  (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?)
       
      wip is here

      I finished my trukks finally! Just took some shots outside, to see how the lighting varied. I have a few bits I have to stick back on... ork stuff is truly ramshackle >< haha but otherwise, they're done =D Waiting another 24 hrs to see how the varnish did, and if I need to revarnish them (really important since I tend to do a lot of weathering and these will get handled a lot)

      Right then. I've been on a YouTube binge for the past few weeks watching various videos by a wargames painter and her videos have made me question the way I paint my precious Imperial Guard for 40k (here's the link to her channel). Sacrilege, right? Not so. After seeing one of her camouflage videos (and then watching all of her other videos on the topic), a thought dawned on me: should I be washing these guys after I'm done stippling on their colours?
       
      A little backstory should be given before I throw pictures at you. I've always liked the German Flecktarn camouflage pattern and decided to use it on my Imperial Guard troopers. Luckily, there was an article about stippling on the internet that I had found and the pattern clicked. So many years ago... Anyway, at the time, I figured you wouldn't be able to see if there had been wash used or not so none was ever used. After having watched these videos, it's time to figure out if this needs to be readdressed.
       
      My first reaction is to scream "No!" at you until you go away as I have many guardsmen already painted up in Flecktarn. My more sane reaction is to agree to this washing as the models could use some shading in places; eg, around their cargo pockets, between equipment, where the tunic closes on itself, and around some of the tunic piping. Here are the pictures for reference. These are old pictures as they still feature the paper towel background I was told not to use.

      Lieutenant
       
      The question, after whether they should be washed, is what colour wash should be used? Spectre Miniatures has a gorgeous tutorial on how to paint Multicam (which everyone should check out) and they use Athonian Camoshade - an olive green wash by Citadel. A brown shade was the first thing to come to mind but Flecktarn features more green than brown shades of colour. Perhaps a black wash would work better - thinned, of course?
       
      So, yeah. I'm leaning towards giving them a wash but don't know what colour to choose. Maybe a thinned all-over wash and then a recess and pin wash? Any help would be appreciated. Also, I apologize for the bad lighting. It would be neat if you could see the Lieutenant's cigar in his left hand.
