Sparrow paint some Fire Giants (Bones 3)

12 posts in this topic

Now that I've finished the Frost Giants I'm moving onto something a bit warmer, Fire Giants. Currently I've boiled, primed, and base coated skin on all 5. Several will probably need an additional skin coat but so far so good. Pictures in spoiler.

Starting off with the queen since she's the smallest and will hopefully be the fastest to do, got some metallic down on her cape and skirt. Will have to go back and do the back of her knees when I mix up more skin color because I totally missed them.

Base coated the armor and hair. I'm worried I went too bright of an orange to start with on the hair. I guess if nothing else I can give it a good wash to make it a little more subtle later. Kind of dreading the face.

I like the orange. I'm all for fiery hair on fire creatures, and like you said, a wash will bring it back down anyway.

I ended up using some clear red instead of just a wash. I'm anticipating finishing thos one up in the next couple of hours, so more pictures to come.

I think except for the face  and a few touch ups I'm mostly finished. Here is how she looks, her hair, and spear.

I'm kind of working on a bunch of things at once right now. I've done all the hair, veins, and eyes. O did all the touch ups on the queen, now I just need to assemble her.

The scary part. :unsure: Gluing up a painted figure gives me the heebie jeebies. I'm fine with hard plastic minis where you can use the cement with the little brush, but I usually put too much super glue on the PVC things. lol

I've started using super glue gel (Loctite brand) and it has made my life so much easier. I can get just enough on the mini and rarely get it all over myself in the process.

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try. I sometimes use Loctite Liquid (runny) and I have a big bottle of GO2 gel (which is super thick) but I haven't tried it on minis. Time to get their normal gel.

      Hello!
       
      I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
       
      I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
       
      I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.

      The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things.  
       
      My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not.
       
      Here are my 5 victims:
      89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy)
      89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest)
      77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger (Balin)
      77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter (Tsunami)
      77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (Elrohir)
       
      Group shot:

       
      That's totally not DDS2 in the background, I don't know what you're talking about. Pay no attention to that at all, totally not relevant. 
       
      So, I'll make this post my timestamp (12:00 PM PST), and away we go!
       
      Huzzah!

      I needed a peacekeeper (think paramilitary wasteland cops) in a suit of powered armor holding a blast hammer for my warband in the post apocalyptic skirmish game "this is not a test".  The corsair was a good fit so I used the warhammer from one of the weapon sprues and Wild West Sophie's sheriffs star base as a shield, the head is an alternate from a peacekeeper mini.  Lots of fun to paint the corsairs are great minis.  Hope you like him ;)

      My first transparent mini:

       

       
      I wanted to try painting one of the new invisible heroes from Bones III the other day.  This is super simple paint job where I first painted the base, then masked it with a solid coat of Brown Liner for opacity.  After that, I quickly painted the wizard with a single coat of a mixture of:
      3 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 2 drops RMS Flow Improver 1 drop RMS Wash Medium 1 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue  
      After waiting a day (I was worried the ink might leach out of the sealer or something if I tried to work with it too soon), I painted the exterior of the base with Rainy Gray, followed by a coat of Brown Liner magic wash.  To finish, I sealed the entire figure with a coat of Gloss Sealer, followed by a second coat of Gloss on the wizard and a coat of Brush-on Sealer on the base.
       
      The result was a very blue, almost candy-like mini.  I'm happy with the result, but I'm thinking of pushing back the ink next time by at least half to get a lighter tint.  The wash went on pretty well, but I might also try increasing the viscosity just a bit by upping the ratio of Gloss Sealer.
       
      Overall, a fun and easy paint job.
