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.

      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!

      When I got back into painting in October of 2015, these were among the first minis I bought. Since I'd been painting undead mostly when life got in the way years ago, I thought it appropriate to begin again with the same.(I also got a couple boxes of Zombicide VIPs undead are the easiest things to paint and after an 11 year gap I needed something forgiving at first) However I didn't actually get them done until Halloween of 2016. It was also my first attempt at freehand in years.

      This is the very first fig that I ever bought, 8 or 9 years ago.  It was for my first D&D session with some close friends, and I fell in love with the game on the spot.  This character has gone through a lot: demonic armor possession, lost both of his eyes, had a hole punched through his chest, died 3 times, came back as a zombie, body taken over by a lich, and currently resurrected in the body of a half-ogre.  I have a new fig for the character and his new body, but this one will always have a special place in my heart.  I finally got around to painting him over the weekend.  His eyes are a little googly, and the attempt at highlighting didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but I'm glad he turned out OK.  Tips on highlighting would be most appreciated, as that's what I was trying out on this one.  Thanks as always!

      Presenting another Ogre Gangster from the game Wolsung by Micro Art Studio.
       
      Casting wasn't too good on this one, he's got pits, cracks and rough patches all over him, but I still think I did a decent job.
      He's also my final Ogre Gangster (I've still got a few Halfling Gangsters to paint though), so here's a group-shot:-
       

       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly appreciated.
