Burrows and Badgers - Otter Mercenary

Recommended Posts

Very well painted, lovely mini too..

 

For the gems, there are great tutorials on youtube you can check out. But the gist of the matter is that, the light acts in total contrast to what you expect in a gem. I mean, the top portion of the gem is drk, almost black, gets gradually lighter as you get to the botom and has a very light "line" of almost white near the very bottom..

Thank you for the tips! I used a drawing as reference but next time I will try to find a miniature with lots of them. It seems I did it the wrong way around haha.

When you photograph a mini like this, either put it down on something, or use Blu-tack or similar to add a handle under the base so that you can hold him with your hand out of the picture. 

It takes very little extra effort and improves the pictures tremendously.

 

He is wonderfully painted. Love the purple sash.

 

So, which B&B mini will you do next?

I've got some B&B miniatures right here, and this is tempting me to shuffle around my queue and start a couple...

 

Anyway, to add on a bit to the photography, a simple piece of green or tan felt would do.  I'm attaching a samplepicture without miniatures so as not to mess up your thread. ::): There are photographic technical reasons why a mid tone is better than black or white...IMG_2379.thumb.jpg.c9fd65d4de25989c45cb591c116bed54.jpg

      Hey all!
      Just finished this little guy. Really fun to paint and I quite like the way it turned out! I really love the line!

      Painting up a rat dude for a Pathfinder game I'm in. I wanted to go with an albino white rat look. I had trouble getting the skin to come out right at first. I'd gone with a medium caucasian skintone (Vallejo Medium Flesh), washed with GW Carroburg Crimson, and then highlighted with Vallejo Highlight Skin, a very pale skintone. I wanted to go with a high contrast. It ended up not working quite as well as I had hoped. Adding in some Reaper Old West Rose where the Medium Flesh showed helped a lot. In the future, I think I'll either add a midtone in between the two skin colors, or else start with a pink like the Old West Rose. The end result isn't too bad, but I think I can get there faster, and with a less mesy looking result.
       

       
      I used my Scale 75 steel alchemy set, using their guide for a more blue steel for the sword and chainmail. I think I'll want to add in a bit more of a neutral steel color for the midtones. Right now, it's coming across too blue and green. After that, I need to finish up the fur cloak, do some finishing on the leather belt, and add some basing.

      Here is the mighty Shrew-zerker, from the Burrows and Badgers line (and game) from Oathsworn.
       

       
      Sorry about the shininess, as he's a for play piece so I gloss coated him, and its been too humid or damp to dull coat him for the last couple of weeks.  I'll update with some new pics whenever I get a chance to spray him.
      He's a great little fig (Oathsworn's anthropomorphic figs are scaled like the actual animals are, so shrews are pretty tiny, around 20mm) and was fun and quick to paint.  He's been done for a while but my basing stuff was all away from moving to a new painting space.  I finally found some and put a quick and simple base on him. Hopefully as I get more used to basing with flock again (its been....a while) my bases will improve for future B&B figs.
       
      Update!
      Dull coated and with improved photography....

      Next we have the Shrew Warrior.
       

       
      Again, sorry about the shininess.  I'll post new pics once the weather cooperates for dull coating.
      Another fun little guy, full of character.
       
      Update!
      It actually stopped raining long enough to spray some dull coat.  I've also been messing around with my phone and background to get less washed out pics.

      So while I still don't have any Burrows and Badgers figures completed (the Shrew-zerker just needs his base finished, so almost....) I did finish the first 4 pieces of terrain.
       

       

       

       
      These are part of a large set of resin cast pieces Jo sculpted for the first Burrows and Badgers Kickstarter called The Ambush the Camp terrain set. Lovely pieces.
      I went for a simple tabletop paint job, lots of washes and drybrushing.  I expect these to see a lot of use in both B&B and hopefully Frostgrave so wanted something I could fix up if it got scuffed or marked up.
      I may go back and add some bits of moss or other basing once I get all my basing stuff sorted again; its in a bunch of piles from moving rooms.
