Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection...
The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts."
This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result!
If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum.
Okay all, I'm sure you've noticed that I've popped back up on the forum. Basically, I'm picking back up where I left off, with the exception I've also started getting into armor as well as minis. At any rate, where I left off was that I was about to start messing around with pigments. The problem is, I'm not sure which line, if any, to go with. What got me started was the Tiger 1 model I'm currently working on. I decided that I needed pigments to weather it, but got impatient and just started using what I had lying around. I sufficiently muddied the thing, and now I'm going to have to make a muddy diorama to go along with it to justify Hans and Franz' off-roading antics, but I digress...
What I'm curious about is what brands do some of you use/recommend? I'm leaning towards the Secret Weapons weathering pigment set as it has quite a few pigments in it, and I can't see needing more than that. However, I'm also aware that Scale75, Tamiya, and quite a few others I hadn't heard of before also produce pigments. Shoot, I even made a rust pigment in the past to use on one of the exchanges we did on the forum, and I may just make lampblack to finish out the sooty areas that need to be on the Tiger. At any rate, I'd love to hear y'alls experience with whatever powdered pigments you've used in the past. Thanks for any input you can provide!
This guy has been a work in process for a few weeks and I finally got the time to finish him up! Quite pleased with how my third paint job turned out! Got some tips from a vet painter last night and also an idea that I might do later to have a bit of a glow effect coming from the visor. Will update if I do it
Funny how at an early stage of painting things get really messy, then eventually come together.
This is where I'm at now, having come from this:
which is a photo of the metal version, though the one I'm painting is plastic. The details survived surprisingly well for a first-generation Bones casting.
I wanted to get this started before I was too far along and just shot with my built-in webcam that does not like to shoot macro. Better photos when I don't feel so rushed.
I feel I might be oversharing a fair bit here.
