Assembled and gap filled and modified!

 

I'm about 12 hours into this project now. 

 

Next up is to allow everything to cure and then wash off with warm soapy water to remove mold releases and finger oils. Then I'll prime everything at the same time.

 

 

The Heroines! Yay!!! :winkthumbs:

An idea occurred last night while talking to Thrym about my project plans. 

 

I am going to cut the demon in half at the waist and have him half-formed coming up from the 9 hells in the summoning circle with flames and smoke issuing forth and surrounding him. 

 

Giving it more a feel of motion, danger, dynamics, and drama. 

 

I'm also trying to decide on the layout so it's compact but not crowded and not so large that things get lost or it's too big to fit in my painted figs carry case.

If anyone else wants help planning dioramas, etc. please feel free to hit me up on social media or ping me for help on here.  The new @membername feature is nice for getting people's attention.

 

I may not have a lot of time to work on my projects but it's not really a huge thing to chat on instant messengers apps about stuff.

 

Back to the WIP!

Would be cool too to rework the smaller set of arms so that they are bent, elbows up and palms on the floor as if he's pushing himself up.

Yeah! I may have to either heat and reposition or cut and reposition. Will look at it tonight. ::D:

Just wondering why the paladin is holding the sword that way...

I looks to me like she is going to try and stab something with it as if it was a dagger....

Other than that, 

Lloth's blessing upon the project!

It reminds me of the original Conan the Barbarian movies where he shows off and goes through different movements with his sword. 

 

I liked the sword and that the hand was a left hand so I went through with the conversion even if it looks a tad bit off or odd. Think of it as her swinging and reversing grip in the middle of a dramatic battle. :;):

 

Thanks for the blessings of the spider queen!

 

ETA:

If everyone doesn't like the paladin's new sword I can still go with something else. I'm up for suggestions.

After thinking about it for the last few days, I realized that George hit the nail on the head for me with regards to the paladin's modification. I wasn't 100% happy with the angle of the sword and how big it is in relation to the figure itself. So, a few moments ago I snipped the sword off and am putting a different sword on it with a different pommel. Right now I'm looking through my bits box to find the right pommel with the blade already attached.

 

Thanks for pointing it out to me, George!

Here's the new sword, it looks better in scale and still has the decorative elements I was after.

 

Working with such tiny pins and bits is very tough to do! I'll wash it off and prime all of them today. I'm also going to cut the demon off at the waist as the more I think about that summoning up from the 9 hells surrounded by smoke and fire, the more I like it. This will also take some more modifications for the lower set of arms, so I'll cut them off and re-position so it looks like he's climbing up as Andy suggested.

Thoughts thus far?

Here we go, cut the demon in half at the waist as I said I was going to do and repositioned both lower arms to give him the dynamics of motion that he was struggling to be summoned and pull himself up out of the nine hells.

I love what you're doing here in all regards except one.

 

The paladin's grip on her shield is wonky.  That's how you either a). Hold a buckler, or b) throw a shield.  A kite shield should be flat against her forearm...unless she is going to have an enemy ripping her shield off her arm, or an ally helping her put on her shield.

Thank you. 

 

This particular shield I really liked for its design elements. The design is vertical and it looked strange to me when I tried to align it where it would be turned to be strapped to her arm. I'll look at kite shields a bit closer as I still have time to modify it or even change out the shield for one that may fit her arm better.

Kite Shield:

You have the option of orienting the shield with the long axis pointing toward the ground or elbow.

 

Heater Shield

Based on the the size of that shield, and the paladin's cloak, you could probably make the current shield work with a minor modification.

After feedback about odd shield placement. I found a shield that actually matches the sword and attached to the right arm with superglue and then I used some green stuff to sculpt the leather straps that her arm would go through and hand would hold onto while fighting. 

 

I think it looks a lot better and I'm happier with this shield as the matching is good for my OCD!

 

What do you all think?

      Finally finished this demon chick (Reaper 77281) to decent tabletop stadard.  She had been sitting on my bench half painted a long time. Her face had a flash line on one side, so I tried to make it look like a fresh wound.

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

      This one is cool, IMO. Ever wished that Shadow Demon came in a different color than Purple? 

      Once again, presenting my experiments with translucent Bones and Tamiya Clears. 

      Warning Pic Heavy
      First off, an untouched Shadow Demon:


      With Tamiya Clear Gloss:


      Untouched next to the one with the clear gloss:


      Tamiya Clear Red:


      Tamiya Clear Orange:


      Tamiya Clear Yellow:


      Tamiya Clear Green:


      Tamiya Clear Blue:

       
      Tamiya Clear Smoke:


      All of them, in all their glory:


      As you can see, the Tamiya clears can actually change the color while maintaining the translucency on the smaller and thinner parts.  The only one that doesn't do this to the same degree as the others is the Smoke.

      Hope people find this useful.

      C&C and advice always welcome. Started working on this awesome tiefling/demon. Cleaned off mold lines, except the one on his outstretched arm and hand. The file wouldn't cooperate. Working on his face/head and just wanted to show some pictures. Yesterday, I was frustrated with the mouth, still am.
      Paints I used for the skin:
      29843: HD Solid Black 
      09427: Nut Brown
      09401: Dragon Red
      09404: Cinnamon Red
       
      Did this in layers
      Shadow = Solid Black : Nut Brown (1:3)
      Nutbrown
      Nutbrown : Dragon Red (1:1)
      Dragon Red
      Dragon Red : Cinnamon Red (1:1)
      Cinnamon Red
       
      Spent 4 hours on the skin and face. I'm happy with where he's going at the moment. Tiefling art online for clothes has been rather uninspiring. So many browns, muted tones, or drab colors.
