Aku-chan paints... Belisarius Cawl

28 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!

Almost done, just need to paint the sleeve and handle on axe-arm.

Also need to do something to the glowy coils, they're looking a bit flat.

      Been looking forward to working on some more Twisted minis for a long time (basically ever since I crushed Nightingale trying to assemble her, and realized I was just too clumsy to work with fragile resin minis any more), I'm starting with Bill Sykes and Bullseye:-
       

       
      Weren't as hard to assemble as I feared they might be, just letting the primer dry overnight and I can start painting!

      For your consideration: Reaper Bones miniature Female Anti-Paladin.

      It wasn't until I started on my idea for the shield that I realized that *it* was the Main Character. Not exactly a daemon-possessed sword, but a symbiotic relationship none-the-less. Extravagant tone with bright, decadent colors. She-Hulk for the hair.  Massive Voodoo for the dots. (More dots!) My cat Zen for the eyes. (He's a Tom.) Lots of non-textured areas to tell a story. Great player character or reoccurring NPC. 
      A lesson of extreme - in Color and form. The armor was protective but the clothing was tattered like a torn mesh bodysuit. Heavy straps encircled limbs and the armored boots formed like hooves. Toothy maw adornment on the armor hints at hunger. A very introspective Pin-Up.

      I hope you enjoy. :)

      Here are "many" pictures of my entry for the Reaper 4th Quarterly Facebook Group Painting Contest.
      I wanted unusual colors for the armor and after painting her, I decided to call her "Pink kills".
      Shaern Female Antipaladin was scuplted by Bobby Jackson.
      The pieces of monster on the base are parts from Reaper's 03334, Creature Components and 03440, Creature Components II.
       
      The first picture was my entry in the contest. Comments and critiques are very welcome.

      This is was my entry for the 4th quarterly Reaper Facebook contest.  It was good enough for 3rd place!
       
      There were so many well painted models, and awesome interpretations.
       
      As I was planning it, my starting idea was copper nmm.  I didn't want the typical verdigris.  Then I thought a bluish or purple to counter the orange, so that got me thinking Drow with purple glazed into her shadows. 
       
      Then I took that farther to try to get OSL in her eyes, shield, and base as if she was casting 'protection from good' or something.
       
      Sadly, the OSL was saved to the end when I ran out of time.  So I tried a bright rim around those areas, then a purple glaze.  It wasn't striking enough for my tastes, but ... deadlines!
       
      So, I hope you like her.
       
      Sorry if the photo is blurry, it's a cell phone screen grab.
       
      C&C welcome.

      This is my first post.
      I'm relatively new at this, I've painted fewer than 10 minis, but I really like it.
       
      I have Multiple Sclerosis so my hands shale and my vision gets... weird... sometimes, so I tend to take an incredibly long time. 
       
      Here's a recap of the last 17 hours:
       
       

      My friend I am doing this for is playing a character with only 1 axe, so I removed the second one with wire cutters and used modeling putty to fix where I marred the coat. Still a bit rough.
      I might put a dagger in his hand or something. Not sure. 
       
      I found that I need to do their faces first because if I mess up a face on an already painted body it is hard to strip and start over.
       

       
       
       
      I noticed that what I thought was hair was actually little robe-orniments so I painted them copper.
       

       
      All his leather belts and buckles were really hard on my hands!
       

       
      I didnt want him to look too much like Thor, so I decided he's a warm-colors kind of guy.
       

       
      I need to learn how to make the metal look reflective like some of you do!
       

       
      The horn on his back is 'Horn of Gondor' colors. 
       

       
      Good ol 'pencil for scale' picture for a friend.
       
      He probably will take me another 6 hours or so to finish, but I had to quit to sleep for now.
       
      Taking time to look or comment means a lot to me, you guys are great. 
      Thanks!

       
       
      Hope I can finish him tomorrow! 
       
       

      Why do 2 pictures keep randomly loading below this point? I keep deleting but they just come back. Halp!
