So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
Hope he's happy when it's finished :D
Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D
*****Early Bird Special***** All backers who pledge at the Complete Scarab Experience level within the first 24 hours will receive a free Beast of Ammut figure. I will keep track of the backers who pledge in the first 24 hours but please let me know if you are concerned that you did not make it.
Beast of Ammut Welcome to Splintered Light Miniatures' 15mm fantasy Egyptian Scarab-men Kickstarter. A few years ago we released the Sons of Horus, our first fantasy Egyptian themed army, as well as some fantasy Egyptian undead.
Over the last few years, we have been planning a series of similarly themed armies and are having them sculpted by Faron Betchley. Our main goal with this Kickstarter is to get the funds we need for the production molds and initial castings. Our hope is that as we are getting the funding for production molds, we can also keep Faron sculpting new armies and mercenary units for future Kickstarter campaigns. We need your help to get this done so please pledge today!
Our plan is to have 8 packs of Scarab-men available. Each pack of infantry will have 12 castings. Each pack of cavalry will have 6 castings, and the monster pack will come with one complete monster. Each pack will be $8 at retail.
SCAR01 Scarab Command: 3 leader poses, 3 musician poses, 3 priest poses and 3 standard poses
SCAR02 Scarab Spears: 6 of each pose
SCAR03 Scarab Khopesh: 6 of each pose
SCAR04 Scarab Archers: 6 of each pose
SCAR05 Scarab Guard: 6 of each pose
SCAR06 Scarab Cavalry: 6 of the one pose
SCAR07 Scarab Mutant Cavalry: 6 of the one pose
SCAR08 Scarab Monstrous Beast
For this Kickstarter, I will be offering these at three pledge levels. First, backers can choose to get one of each infantry pose and cavalry pose for $15 as a war band for skirmish games. This option will not qualify for stretch goals.
Second, backers can choose to get an army with enough units to make a Mighty Armies army or HOTT army. The army will include: 1 command stand (leader, musician, standard), 1 caster stand (priest + 2 guard), 2 stands of spears (6 figures), 2 stands of khopesh (6 figures), 2 stands of archers (6 figures), 1 stand of guard (3 figures), 1 cavalry stand (3 figures), and 1 monstrous beast (1 figure). This option will qualify for the stretch goals.
Finally, backers can choose to get one of each of the beetle packs. This will include packs SCAR01-08 and will give backers 60 infantry, 12 cavalry, and 1 monstrous beast. This option will qualify for stretch goals.
Stretch Goals: As stretch goals for this Kickstarter, I will be offering Sobek Crocodile Warriors. These will serve as mercenaries for any Egyptian themed army.
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:
