Band of Meddling Heroes - Steampunk Oz - Daughter's Birthday Present 2017 - A Thrym WIP #0Z18

20 posts in this topic

I bought the Steampunk Wizard of Oz set for my daughter out of the Bones 3 KS.

 

Naturally, I am doing it last minute for her birthday Tuesday, the 18th.

 

So, here's the plan:

 

A.

Assemble them all on unfinished but sealed silver maple wood cuts using usual building materials.

 

B.

Basecoat them with simple but muted colors.

 

C.

Apply Sepia Wash and paint as needed to simulate a "colorized movie" look.

 

Here's what we got so far:

Dorothy and Toto on a Compass Rose beginning their adventure.  The witch commanding her monkey.

Dorothy glued in and brick road applied.

Lion and brick road applied.

 

Enjoy and stay tuned.  More to come.

I was fortunate to get this set off ebay last week for a decent price (hopefully if someone takes my offer, I'll have the whole core set and another set of the wizard of Oz). Love how you are setting them up so far, your daughter should be very happy with them.

Tinman construct added to his base.

 

That just leaves his buddy, Scarecrow and Glinda (played by Dita, the Steampunk Witch).

 

Enjoy and Stay tuned!

Trimmed bases off Scarecrow and Glinda and added them to their bases.

Added some ballast to the minis missing it and finished priming most of them ... Scarecrow needed his edges trimmed and the green stuff was still setting.

 

Added a smokey / snowy couple of paths over the rocks on the Wicked Witch's base.  Not sure which direction it will finish.

 

The ballast will likely get a wash but not get much else in the way of paint.

Enjoy and Stay tuned.

ROLLIN', ROLLIN', ROLLIN'

 

Put the first basecoats on ... Skintones.

Elf Flesh on Dorothy and Glinda because they are going to darken.

 

A mix of Vallejo Sunny Skinetone and Reaper Palomino Gold for the Scarecrow and Lion.

 

The Wicked Witch and her smokey fog got a coat of Army Painter's "Lust" from their Others Deadly Sins series.

 

The Smokey Fog:

... is thin super glue used with Super Glue Filler.  I blow in the filler along the rocks, etc. and then add the glue.  The glue follows the filler.  Dries clear or whitish depending on how much filler there is.  The Lust paint is very thin going on here.

      I finally was able to get the time and - quite frankly - the painting bug biting me to get this done for Jasper the 2nd, who won my Artist page 500 likes random contest drawing. 
       
      This is the figure he picked out of my collection and I'm going to mail him out this week. It's a Forge Guardian from Rackham Confrontation, dwarf of Tir-Na-Bor. Metal figure, at 28mm scale. It was actually quite fun to paint up. The base is a pre-made base that I painted to be a stained/rusted metallic from the old Stonehaven Dwarves kickstarter.
       
      Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!

      Just finished my first Bones 3 mini paint job from the core set - the Death Dog! I actually managed to finish it in an afternoon (which is pretty quick compared to my usual glacial speed).
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Finally remembered to post these up.
      I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange.  I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year.
      He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk.  I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it.....
       

       
      With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour.  Hopefully that was somewhat successful.
       

       
      The Lord came out fiarly well, I though.  I'm not sure if what I was trying with the hat came across as well as it could of.
      I was really happy with the vest, though it may not show up well in the picture.  I used Ruby Red to highlight Gothic Crimson, which gave it a nice satiny shine.
      Apparently all my shots of his back are blurry, and he's on a different continent now.  But dark grey coat of light grey pants, not too exciting anyway. 
       

      The Dame is a lovely figure and a joy to paint.  I had a great time painting her, other that realizing that I'm missing at least one paint in each green triad I wanted to use....
       
      And whenever I paint anything that could be considered Steampunk-y I love to throw in a West Wind Infernium Hound.

      My husband is running a game of more-or-less-Exalted (2nd ed.) set in the more-or-less World of Darkness (2nd ed.) ("But rather less than more," as W.S. Gilbert wrote -- it has been given the complete Neil Gaiman-Alan Moore historico-mythological treatment, about which I can expound elsewhere and another time, 'cos it's a really fun game).
       
      One of the PCs is playing a mage of the Sons of Ether who has taken to proffering therapy to would-be reformed werewolves and vampires, who Exalted as a solar of the Twilight caste.
       
      If this means nothing to you, don't worry about it.  He's a modern-day Scottish mage who has suddenly gotten an infusion of even more magey power.
       
      This is my standard starting point, the mini glued to a base, primed white, and washed with Burnt Umber.
