Mr. Silence

Great work!

 

I love the colors and how they all fit together.

 

(I saw the figure and already had the whistle of an intro jingle in my head ... started giggling. And now I can not stop coughing because I choked on my drink. I guess that is the power of Mr. Silence ...)

OUTSTANDING! Mr. S is an interesting miniature, BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. Your choice of colors add to the miniature's effect. VERY WELL DONE!

I like.. but could use some more highlights on the back of the cloak in the broad area (not the peaks of the folds).

Thanks!

Yeah, I struggle to do such broad highlights (my blending skills suck) so I chickened out and just did the edges :down:

your skills are nowhere near the normal definition of "sucks".. they are another galaxy way above that.   Give it a shot and I am sure you will impress yourself.

      Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character.
       
      Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date.

      'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.
      The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.
      However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.
      In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'

      I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.

      I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster.
      The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out.
      My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.

      Started a new campaign and wanted to add in a few of the expansion monsters, namely the gorm, the flower knight and possibly the dungbeetle knight.  Well see how it goes but the first up was the gorm.  Just getting started on it but I wanted thoughts on its direction and if someone has thoughts on increasing the creepy factor.  I have noticed that the expansion monsters are a tad further down the rabbit hole than the main game.
       
      The classic gorm is all black but I thought it lacked a certain punch so I changes the head using a baby picture I found and I'm working on blending it back to a greenish blue body.  Let me know if anyone has thoughts on what might increase its shock value.  
       
      I'll add more pictures if people are interested as I go

      Started working on the Echoes of Death set. I have the whole set, but I also have an appalling track record when it comes to actually finishing my Kingdom Death figures, so I'm just building and painting them one at a time.
       
      Starting with the Fighter (who's gigantic):-
       

       
      So far, I've made a start on her skin:-
       

       
      It's a basecoat of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Shade Wash.
       
      I stopped here and took a piccy so I could get some idea of where her eyes are, I think buying some sort of magnifier is in my future.
