I recently got in the latest "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter from Oathsworn Miniatures. I decided to get started on them and take (yet another) break from my in progress Rising Sun minis.
As \always, they were nice, clean casts with lots of detail, but nothing over-wrought...which makes sense for low-level adventurers! They're such a joy to paint.
With the arrival of Zombicide Green Horde, I realized that I had yet to paint up any of the necromancers for the game. So I decided to start a new thread for these guys.
I decided that instead of starting with the one that came with the core set, I would paint up another one called Grin. I had planned on just painting up a base coat today as I waited on the primer of another figure. Then I just kept going. Now the art for the figure has him with a very dark overall feel. The figure's backstory has it that he's half zombie from a failed ritual. So I Went with the zombie skin I had with the rest of the zombies. I then added in a warm brown to try to give him a little more life than a regular zombie. Looking at the image I think I need something else.
Well here is the results of today's painting:
By Xiwo Xerase
I picked out 14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt to practice the lessons in Bones LTPK #1. I'm aiming for "tabletop" quality with this paint job.
Here's the miniature with most of the basecoating done:
The colors in use are:
09050 Antique Gold for the gold accents 09052 Shadowed Steel for the armor 09053 Honed Steel for the sword 09056 Templar Blue for the edge of the tabard, the sword hilt, and the edge of the tabard (or whatever that is) 09064 Brown Liner for lining between the blue and yellow on the tabard 09074 Palomino Gold for the tabard and the undercoat for the gold accents 09110 Oiled Leather for the belt 29843 HD Solid Black for the black
The white patches on the tabard are 09108 Brush-on White Primer because I scraped off the paint there. (I got some basing material stuck there, decided I'd paint over it, and then decided to scrape it off and make it look better.)
My next tasks are to repaint the reprimed parts of the tabard after the primer cures and fix any painting errors before moving on to the wash portion of the exercise. (Any shadows you see in the pictures are probably a result of the lighting rather than any painted effects.)
After I'm done with this, I suppose I should paint Sir Forscale.
So here's my latest creation. I tried a different technique this time around by "overbrushing" for the the highlights on the skin and it was . . . ok. I can see it as a great way to speed the process along for a speedier paint job, and might be great for painting armies and units, but it does have its limits when it comes to blending. I'm also not sold on the blending in the armor as it did not blend real smoothly despite my best attempts but its a start at least. As always, any ideas, suggestions, critiques, feedback, etc. are most appreciated!
So i started this piece for a competition over on Reddit and didn't finish in time. I feel like I should be able to make a final push to get this done in one sitting, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the base is supposed to be. The bare metal looks like it's supposed to be a stump, however the two wedge shaped bits (picked out in grey) and the lip under the surface that she's standing on don't make any sense.
I just can't wrap my head around that last bit to get this done and no one seems to have painted this and posted picks anywhere for me to use as reference. Anyone have any idea what that's actually supposed to be?
(Yes I know, the face needs a bit of fixing and the lighting in this shot is terrible, but I don't want to work on it without something else to work on to take breaks from failing to make the eyes look right.)
