Stared work on this guy finally! 

 

I sculpted the base myself. I really like that he is slight bending at the knees which made him standing on the stairs i made look more authentic.

On to the painting!

Texture is the name of the game from this weekend. 

  • GW: Vomit Brown (which is like a yellow brown) on the tunic. Several coats until I could not see grey from the primer. 
  • GW: Vomit Brown & Leather White (my favorite paint bottle ::): ) [4:1] - To do some upper highlights on the all the raised areas.
  • Dotting or Stippling with a Mixture: GW Vomit Brown mixed with Walnut brown. So the color was a little darker than the tunic's primary color. 
  • Then stippled or dotted with Walnut brown over THE ENTIRE THING. 
  • After that I did some diluted brown washes pushing into the recesses 
  • and some re-highlighting, re-shadowing, etc etc.

The pants:

  • Painted in Leather White
  • highlighted in PURE White
  • washed in Muddy Brown (which is a green brown.)

The bag:

  • Painted Royal Purple, highlighted with Leather white then washed in Muddy Brown

Got a little more progress on him: Hair, Fur, Bow, Quiver, belt, knife

 

The front picture shows a better view of his tunic and the texture I attempted to add.

 

I tried for a bone handle skinning knife. I thought the quiver looked nice. It's one done yet but I like the two toned.

 

What do y'all think?

Oh Fir'a!!!!! Got more done last night. I've been cleaning my desk off and what not so I had plenty of space... what that has to do with this... You'll find out when the package arrives. Muahaha

 

So I decided to take a crack at the hair "shine" effect. I worked on the skin: Leather white, wasted in a Green wash, dried, Washed in a Reaper flesh wash (which is a red/brown tone) then leather white again with highlights of pure white. Not sure if i'm done but for a table top piece I think it would be fine if called it done.

 

Quiver and knife: added some free hand stitching. Makes the attempt at the bone handle look better in my opinion. What do y'all think?

Started working on the base a little while ago and forgot to post it. Turning our better than I thought. As it is I'm leaving but I will probably go back and do more on it later.

Additionally, I did some more detailing bits-n-bobs that you can't really see in the picture. 

________________________________________________________________

THE BASE

  • Steps are painted in a Terran Khaki which has this kind of green to it as well.
  • Progressive thin layers until it was solid
  • Vallejo Green Wash over the steps with a focus on pushing toward the "end" of the step.
  • Next, I took a Cloudy Grey and diluted it down and washed it into the recesses of the steps. 
  • Kind of using it as a blending color for the Khaki and Green wash
  • UPPER Steps Base: Cloudy Grey, VLJ German Grey (Reaper does not appear to have an equivalent but the closes match is Stormy grey)
  • Painted in Cloudy Grey then diluted down 3:1 the German Grey and pulled it back to the end of the circle base.
  • Highlights, which are not very visible in this picture: Leather White used to hit the tips of the steps.

I want to be able to refer back to this.

::): Cool! That reminders me. I need to put a break down of the process for the base. I will add that to the post above. :)

Alright, last photo. This piece is done but I wanted to put in the base.

 

I added some texture to it. sprinkled on some flocking.  This photo is not great as I want the final show-off ones to display it better.

         With our upcoming Ghost Archipelago campaign less than two months away, I thought I would start introducing the crew I plan to use, as I get the figures painted up.  
         I'll  start with are my Heritor (Reaper 77044 Turanil, Male Elf paladin) and Warden (03415 Lanura Windsong, Elf Wizard).    We decided for our initial GA test game, which we are having after our December Frostgrave campaign game, that we would roll randomly for Heritor abilities.  I got an interesting assortment, and depending on how things go during the test game, I just may keep them.  For the Wardens we choose whatever Branch and Spells we wanted.   
       
      I've had in mind wanting to use these two figures, so I decided to go with a crew of Elves.  The figures I'm using for my Heritor and Warden were already painted, so given the color scheme I had used for Warden's figure I deiced to go with a Vine Warden.
       

       
      Heritor:  Lord Hytieral Fortrywn-   Retired from a lengthy military career to enjoy his wealth and his laurels. Powerful. Landholder. Doesn’t tolerate fools.  Not happy that his younger step-sister has out-maneuvered him into taking her daughter,  his niece, along with him to act as his Warden.  She says it will be good for the girl to have experience in the world; he finds the young magic-user barely tolerable, and the fact she isn’t a true wizard is an embarrassment.  
       
      Daze- 3
      Evade-5
      Stand Firm- 5
      Surge- 5
      Disarm-5
       
      So I think the Daze is going to be interesting as the main ability.  Apparently this guy is so formidable looking as he twirls his sword around acrobatically, that enemies just kind of freeze up when they see him. The other abilities I think fall in nicely with someone who was a professional soldier.
       
       
      Warden: Marnilyne Dewdrisane-  Young. Impetuous. Curious. Argumentative. Naïve. In awe of her uncle, and a little scared of him; but also terribly excited to be a part of the adventure ahead.  
       
      Brambles
      Plant Walk
      Warp Weapon
      Summon Animal  Changed to: Water of Life after the test game we played.
       
      I chose Summon Animal as my out-of-school spell, as I've learned from Frostgrave that having an extra figure to command can make a real difference.  Also, I saw this Warden as being generally loving, and being connected to, all living things, plant or animal.  
         During our test game, I became aware of how beneficial having Water of Life was when I watched as my opponent constantly was able to heal his Heritor during the battle, while mine slowly was worn down to half strength.

      It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I have some making up to do. Forgive me.
       
      Dub Bullock. A most unpleasant painting experience. Mine was badly cast so I had to fix up a few spots. This is not something I'm good at. Greenstuff is my enemy.
       
      Thorvald, Dwarf Hero was an experiment in blue armour. I'm not sure if I'll do that again. 
       
      Baeldrinahr, Rogue Fighter. I've painted this one before with a similar scheme.
