Was going to be good and get some half-painted stuff finished, but I couldn't resist the steam-powered siren song of my Twisted minis.

Since I'm going to be working on these for the foreseeable future, I thought I'd WIP them in batches:-

In this first batch, you've got two Urkins (Porker and Bookworm) at the front and (from left to right) Sowerberry, Gentlefolk Blacksmith and Gretel at the back.

Starting with the Blacksmith, not pictured - his chimney backpack.

So far I've basecoated his body in Bronze and given it a Brownshade Wash.

 

Next time, I go crazy with a drybrush.

Progress:-

 

lCKEz0Z.jpg5YodeoO.jpg

 

All the Bronze areas get drybrushes of Bronze and Polished Gold, I then picked out all the raised areas with more Polished Gold.

He was looking a bit too Bronze, so I did some areas as Brass (Brassy Brass > Brownshade Wash > Brassy Brass > 1:1 Brassy Brass/Polished Gold).

I then did his exposed mechanical bits, moustache and grate as Steel (Oily Steel > Blackwash Shade > Oily Steel).

Finally, his eyes and shoulder light were done in 1:1 Andrea Blue/Glacier Blue.

 

Today I wanna try and paint a fire inside his belly oven.

Double progress:-

Painted his belly oven, started pure Off-white, painted a ring of 1:1 Off-white/Ochre Yellow and then another ring of 1:1:1 Off-white/Ochre Yellow/Orange Red, still can't do a particularly good glow effect, but I think I'm getting there slowly.

 

Also gave him Ochre Yellow power cables and Leather Brown belts.

Had a change of direction.

 

Twisted are having a painting contest, so I thought I'd enter one of my minis.

But, as much as I like the job I'm doing on my Blacksmith, I think I'm painting him a little to simply for a contest entry, so I've set him aside for:-

The rather intimidating Witch-hunter Gretel.

 

I'll still work on the Blacksmith, but Gretel is the priority.

 

Any how, progress:-

Painted Gretels skin.

Started with a base of 1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh, then a Fleshshade Wash, then highlights of 1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh and 1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Off-white.

She also got Old West Rose lips and possibly the best eyes I've ever painted.

Those are fantastic eyes.

 

I love how natural and unmade-up they look.

Thanks you two!

I messed up her face a little by varnishing it *Shakes fist at stupid shiny varnish*, but I'm still quite proud of the job I did:-

 

Progress:-

 

xqeweSv.jpgN0si5k8.jpg

 

Once again I'm being bamboozled by a woman's overly-elaborate outfit consisting of too many layers.

First I did her hair (1:1 Leather Brown/Red Orange > 1:3 Leather Brown/Red Orange > Red Orange > Brownshade Wash), then a Black choker with a Bronze button and a Bronze necklace.

 

Next came her hat and outer vest, this was based in 1:1 Vermillion/Blood Red, highlighted with 1:1:1 Vermillion/Blood Red/Ochre Yellow and shaded with 1:2 Scarlett Red/Blood Red.

 

Also made a little progress on the Blacksmith:-

Painted his apron (Bonewhite > Brownshade Wash > Bonewhite > 1:1 Bonewhite/Off-white > Sepiashade Wash) and his hat (Black Grey > 1:1 Black Grey/Cold Stone Grey > Blackshade Wash).

 

Need to fix that dot of Bonewhite on his pouch, also probably going to rethink his hat, I think I made the highlight too big.

      Presenting Bill Sykes (and Bullseye!), leader of the Dickensian faction from the game Twisted.
       
      Going back to painting true-scale minis, and rather detailed ones at that, proved harder than I thought it would, but I think I did a decent job.
      I just wish my varnish hadn't left Bills coat so shiny.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I don't think I ever posted this one.  He was a Bones speedpaint for a villain.  I didn't make a WIP, sorry.

      Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter!
       
      AND IT'S LIVE!
      We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly.
       

       

       
      Some of the figures from Twisted -
       

       
      EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th!
       
      Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

      Been looking forward to working on some more Twisted minis for a long time (basically ever since I crushed Nightingale trying to assemble her, and realized I was just too clumsy to work with fragile resin minis any more), I'm starting with Bill Sykes and Bullseye:-
       

       
      Weren't as hard to assemble as I feared they might be, just letting the primer dry overnight and I can start painting!
