The Random Kingdom Death Box

Recommended Posts

So a couple of months ago I based and primed a handful of Kingdom Death minis, to paint when I'm stuck on other things, and put them away.

 

Now it's time to open the box...

The front row is 4 Rawhide Survivors, plus 2 special Survivors (Paul and the Sun Maiden).

The middle row are the 5 Flower Witch Disciples.

And the back row are the Flower Knight (I will finish you one day) and the Kings Hand.

 

I took the Rawhide Survivors and a Witch Disciple out of the box.

The male Survivors skin was painted up with Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Flesh > 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh.

The female Survivors skin was done with 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > 1:1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh/Light Flesh.

Witch Disciple 1 (I don't actually know which Witch is which, so this might not be the real Disciple 1), only got a basecoat of 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh and a Flesh Wash, I want to at least attempt to paint her eyes and it's easiest before I finish her skin, but I'm on my last brush and it ain't too pointy no more.

So that's got to wait until I have new brushes.

So at the moment I'm just basecoating my Survivors. They've got Steel Blue dress thingys, Lonestar Leather on the hard leather parts and Bonewhite weapons and Skull Helms.

Looking good.  Been meaning to ask, which flesh wash do you use?  I've never had any luck with it (but haven't tried in a long while) and you get some amazing results with yours.

Awesome! I really L O V E the skin. That is what I always try to achieve but never really do - which once again proves: Witch Craft Works!

 

Spoiler

Witch Craft Works. Because of boobs and ... witches ... and ... so on. Mainly because of boobs.

...

Oh, I totally forgot! It is time to watch Lethal Weapon! *whistle*

It's Vallejo Game Colour Flesh Wash.

I don't like their washes too much, they're a bit murky, but the Flesh Wash (and Light Grey Wash) are fantastic.

New brushes mean a little bit of progress:-

Painted the Witches eyes (luckily a shadow from her mushroom hat prevents you from seeing just how googly her left eye is, it just did not want to go right), and highlighted up her skin.

Also noticed her footless stocking so painted her right foot.

Also almost finished basecoating the Survivors (just need to figure out hair colours), they got Blood Red sashes, Cork Brown soft leather parts and Stone Grey furry parts.

The grey then got a Black Wash, while everything else except the blue parts got a Brown Wash.

More progress:-

 

5JqeMNN.jpgmuDuRy8.jpg

 

The Witch got hair (1:1 Cork Brown/Red Orange > Sepia Wash > Red Orange), a dress collar (Light Green > Sepia Wash > Light Green > 1:1 Light Green/Sun Yellow) and some jewellery/scales (1:1 Light Green/Chainmail Silver > Sepia Wash > 1:1 Light Green/Chainmail Silver).

 

Then I painted her mushroom hat.

The brim started with Iraqi Sand and a Sepia Wash, then the top and edge was painted with 1:1 Iraqi Sand/Off-white while the underneath was just more Iraqi Sand, then it all got a second Sepia Wash.

The pointy bit was Blood Red with a Black Wash, then highlights of Blood Red > 1:1 Blood Red/Old West Rose > 1:1:1 Blood Red/Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh, followed by some Blood Red glazes (mostly over the final highlights).

It was at this point I realized it was actually a giant mouth ( there's an eye as well, but it's partially covered by a strap so hard to make out), so I went back in to give it teeth (Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Bonewhite). Then I did the straps (Lonestar Leather > Brown Wash > Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Ochre Yellow) and Brassy Brass medals.

 

I've also been working on the Rawhide Survivors, but apparently forgot to take a picture ::(:

 

So far I've highlighted the soft leather bits (Cork Brown > 1:1 Cork Brown/Bonewhite), hard leather bits (Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Ochre Yellow), the red sashes (Blood Red > 1:1 Blood Red/Red Orange) and I've started on the furry bits but painting dozens of little Wolf Grey dots is crushing my spirit.

Little bit more progress:-

 

lRrz5pK.jpgk1EC7PZ.jpg

 

Started on the Witches dress. The outside is basecoated in Blood Red and the inside is Scarlett Red, it then got a Black Wash.

I'm putting off highlighting it up at the moment.

 

LefrlYe.jpgwq9QXSn.jpg

 

I remembered piccys!

Continued highlighting up the Survivors. Finished the furry parts, highlighted the bone parts (Bonewhite > Pale Sand), the blue parts were shaded with 1:1 Steel Grey/Dark Prussian Blue and highlighted with 1:1 Steel Grey/Wolf Grey.

The ones with hair had it basecoated 1:1 Cork Brown/Ochre Yellow then given a Brown Wash, still needs highlighting.

Then I just need to paint all the stitches and they're done.

With hair highlighted and stitches painted, they're finished:-

And kneeling lady is finally on a base!

Just need to finish the basing now.

 

No progress on the Witch, really should have chosen an easier colour for her dress.

The Rawhide Survivors are finished:-

 

 

And I finally made some progress on the Witch:-

 

PsW9yUs.jpgwHePQKD.jpg

 

I used the same colour scheme as I used on the peak of her hat, but with just a brushtipful of Rosy Flesh in the final highlight instead of a full drop.

The teeth still need a final highlight of Bonewhite, and I'm considering using a different blue on the eyes (it's Steel Grey at the moment) but I don't know if I want to risk the okayish job I've done on them.

More progress:-

 

SK5p0Ce.jpg

 

Painted her stocking and trim (Iraqi Sand > Sepia Wash > Iraqi Sand > 1:1 Iraqi Sand/Off-white > Sepia Wash), undies and shoes (1:1 Pure Black/Dark Prussian Blue), bag (Lonestar Leather > Brown Wash > Lonestar Leather) and Bronze bracelets.

 

Just her staff to go.

Final stretch:-

 

i8ayy0J.jpg

 

Painted the majority of her staff in Bronze, the crystal started with a base of Blood Red, then drybrushes of Red Orange and Sun Yellow and then some gloss varnish to make it more crystally.

Finally, I painted her weird octopus charm thing (Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > Old West Rose > 1:1 Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh > Flesh Wash).

 

Then I attached her to her base, just got to finish that and I'm done.

Okay. I didn't say anything because I thought it might be my eyesight, but I cannot ignore it anymore - though there are so many distracting factors: Is it just me or is her right eye fairly bigger than her left? I am sorry for bringing this up, but it looks a bit weird to me. Or is that some kind of effect or so?

It is.

I kept messing it up, and by the third attempt I couldn't really make it out any more, so I did the best I could and called it a day.

 

Luckily it's not too noticeable in hand, and it's obscured by a tendril from her mushroom hat from most angles.

She's finished!

 

Not quite sure how she ended up with two threads though.

 

This one kinda killed my interest in painting the other Disciples for now, so I need to have a good think about what I pull from the box next.

      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.'
       
      Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.
       
      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.
