Hi, ok so it seem having a long "put everything here" thread is not easy for moderator, I am opening a dedicated one for those WH40K orcs :)
I am done with the skin pass, obviously more details to go in with brush.
going next to get the other parts base coated I think , so I can get an overview of the overall look and color for those guys ( for now it look very green xD )
The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is coming up on November 2.
These are two figures that I sculpted for Reaper, albeit very slowly -- starting in November 2014 and ending in October 2016 (with long periods of inactivity, and other sculpting and painting projects along the way).
Izzy "Talin" Collier drew the character designs:
Reaper sells them as "Day of the Dead Cavalier" and "Day of the Dead Duchess", DHL 03822 and 03823.
If you search for them in Reaper's online store, don't use the words "of" or "the" because those words will blank out all results. Just look for "day dead".
(I refer to them as "Diego de Muertos" and "Diana de Muertos".)
At last, it is time to paint them.
I don't know whether I will use vibrant colors all over or mostly subdued (black / brown) with limited spots of color.
I've done some online image-searches, watched the Pixar film "Coco", etc.
The traditional flower of the holiday is marigolds (orange-yellow), so that color will be part of the palette.
I think I will put them together on one base, but I also don't know how ambitious I'll be on the basing around them -- a bare cobblestone plaza, an altar (sugar skulls, ofrendas, etc.), or more extensive structures and hanging decorations.
My first step of painting is to work out the values with blends of Black and White Brush-On Primer:
Thanks for reading,
So I am reopening what will be a long and fun wip stuff :D hopefully !
For a start ( and to cut from my massive darkness dwarfs..actually still 3 to finish the serie I've got ), I have this nice Runewars Wraiths in my figures stock and that will be great opportunity to airbrush a bit !
And I just got them primed for now , using Vallejo grey primer..since they do have pretty light color regarding the box I did not want use any black for that part.
Well, I decided to start another WIP. This one a sort of Halloween theme. The Vampress Siobhana, Vampiress by reaper. Got some work done on her awhile ago and decided in the spirit of the season to try and finish her up. Unfortunately I couldn't remember exactly the method I painted up the face, so I got as close as I could on the legs and hands. Here's where she is at the moment.
As always, any C&C is always welcome.
I've been wanting to paint a bust since I got back from ReaperCon. I missed my chance to pick up Julie Guthrie's beautiful sculpt from the convention, so I did a bit of research. I had already picked up a larger scale mini from FeR Miniatures at Scale 75's table this year, so I started there. In addition to some more intricately detailed stuff, FeR also had a few busts that seemed a bit more on the simple side, so I grabbed them. They're both in the "Portraits From the Middle Ages" line. I started with this one, the Saxon Huscarl, Hastings, 1066.
I started off by doing the face, using Reaper's HD flesh quadrilogy(?) I mixed them to create midtones, but it still came out less smooth than I had hoped. I think it looks ok for a first go, but I definitely have so much room for improvement. I'm definitely going to do a bit of touching up on the face.
I did the eyes next, and I really like the way that they turned out! They give him such a ruthless look! After this, I base coated the chainmail in dark grey mixed with some black, and then I left it there for the night. I'm going to try and do the metals as non-metallic, so we'll see how that goes!
