We wanted to share the Incantris Kickstarter project image with you and see what you think! The project will be launching on September 7th, and it is only going to run for about 14 days! Do you think this project image will make people pause and see what it's all about? Let us know; we can't wait to get it started. = )
A terror of tabbies from the Fireside Games "Here, Kitty, Kitty" boardgame, painted with The Army Painter paints.
I'll be posting a painting tutorial in the BGG "Here, Kitty, Kitty" forum.
The plastic, of course, is boardgame plastic, requiring quite a bit of mold line removal and gap filling. Like red and yellow, orange needs several coats for coverage, so correcting mistakes and painting over shaded colors took awhile.
The remaining *thirty* cats are black, grey, and white, so hopefully won't take as long...
I have had this Bronze Age Miniatures barbarian on the WIP shelf for far too long; its a great sculpt - very Frazetta-ish! I tried to do the skin in a paler tone, and worked more with glazes than my usual layering/blending. I used Army Painter Barbarian Flesh as the base, then glazed that with Reaper Flesh Wash a couple of times and started working back up with the Barbarian Flesh plus an old Ral Partha Noble Flesh added in for each successive glaze/layer. The hair came out a little blue but I am going to leave it and move on. As always, I love David's sculpts and he has a ton of other great barbarians I look forward to getting to.
This is one of the harder to find Grenadier Fantasy Warriors Barbarians as he is not currently in production - I gave him a club and shield instead of the halberd he inexpicably had in the USA pack (he had a sword in the UK pack). I used the Reaper Ruddy Flesh-Barbarian Flesh-Warrior Flesh triad, along with some Olive Skin Shadow as a glaze over the basecoat and mixed in the first few layers. The pictures are a little overexposed I think, but I am pleased with the skintone results! This is also an example of how well Tamiya Smoke can work as a glaze over metal - I really like the tone on the shield.
