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

Recommended Posts

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.thumb.jpg.3b21c6e6990576077eaf3aaf7b453fbe.jpg

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.

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.

      These are the dread wolves from the cemetery set in Bones 3. I think I might work on the rest of the cemetery set this week. I need to work on Count Lorenth of the Reaper Facebook Quarterly Contest too!
       
      Anyway, these creepy wolves have seen better days. I'm not sure if they are undead or only mostly dead (bonus points if you get the reference) but I painted them up so that I think they will work either way. Adventurers will certainly get a nasty disease if they are bitten or scratched by one of these guys!

      I painted these in my push to paint all of the toothy fluffs in my "hoard of unpainted things".

      So, I went to Origins this weekend and entered the Reaper Speed-Paint. I was only supposed to be at the con on Friday and Saturday, but I paved on Friday and won my Saturday semifinal, so I called in sick on Sunday so I could compete in the finals, where I managed to pull off a win. Friday was the scarecrow, Saturday was the hobgoblin, and Sunday they gave us the Jungle Titan. I'd already painted two of the three before, which certainly didn't hurt when it came go time.
      I didn't get a chance to get pictures in my photo studio before heading out on vacation, so these are the shots I took with my phone at the convention. 



      We had 45 minutes in round 1, 50 minutes in round 2, and a whopping 60 minutes in round 3.

      I've never been much of a fan of GW.  I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
      And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
      But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
      So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre.  Took a look around and caught sight of this:

       
      Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction.  Or whatever the different groups are called.
      I thought, "Those are pretty cool!  Flying stuff.  Steampunky.  I like."
       
      Then we left.  And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
      Then we met back up on Monday.  And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships.  So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
       
      So, this is what they look like when you open the box:

      Oye! Lots of bits.  Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive).  Options that presumably follow rules.  Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. 
      But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
       
      So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

      I grabbed this guy out of the bag of Bones and couldn't tell what it was without my glasses.  All I could tell was that it was a big muscley guy, and I thought it would make a good earth golem to go with the stone golem I was painting.  So I put primer on it, and was a little surprised when I put on my glasses to paint it.  Whatever.  A little flock covered all the obvious scars and stitches. I'm very happy with it.
