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.

      Greetings!
       
      Boys..... Get your guns. I'm a raisin' a posse! Yeeeehaaaw!
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!!

      Apparently I never started a WIP thread for this miniature. This is Reaper's 50304: Rowena Von Graaf, sculpted by Julie Guthrie, which I started painting a long time ago. She's a fun steampunk figure.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.

       

       
      I decided to paint her with a pretty black face.

       

       
      Here's a close-up of her face. There are tiny white points which are microscopic unpainted pits in the figure. They are much smaller irl than they show up in the photographs. I am slowly (maddeningly) working to fill them in as I go.

       
      I decided to paint her underskirt pink. This is Quinacridone Magenta lightened with Titanium White.

       
      And the base coat on her dress and spats is straight Red Oxide.

       

       
      And this is where I left her (cough) about a year and a half ago. More to come!

      Presenting Brokk Grungsson, an important character in the Kharadron Overlords (steampunk, sky pirate dwarfs) faction in the game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
       
      Had this one in the Cupboard of Unfinished Thingstm for a while, and I'm glad it's finally done.
      Bit disappointed with the base though. I wanted to give him a reason for wearing his blimp-suit, so I have him flying over a large pool lava, but I don't think it really works, it needs more texture or some rocks to break up all the yellow or something.
       
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
