14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt: Xiwo Xerase paints something relaxing

Recommended Posts

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.

I think I'm just about done.



The gold bits and the tabard were washed using a Brown Liner wash.  The silver bits were washed using an HD Solid Black wash.  Drybrushing used the original paints and these paints for highlights:

  • 09051 New Gold for the gold accents on the shoulder and helmet
  • 09053 Honed Steel for the armor
  • 09054 Polished Silver for the sword
  • 09075 Buckskin Pale for the tabard

The base is supposed to look a little like snow.  It used these paints:

  • 09021 Snow Shadow
  • 09066 Blue Liner for the wash
  • 09063 Ghost White to drybrush the sand
  • 09689 Sparkling Snow for the final drybrush


The base is painted using 29843 HD Solid Black.  I think this is a nice effect for framing the mini.

kazmania7 recommended blacklining on Anval so I thought I'd try it here since I hadn't started sealing yet.  I tried using 29843 HD Solid Black with some wash medium and flow improver around the metallic pieces.  It brought out definition between the fingers but I'm not sure it helped much otherwise.  I may not know what I should be looking for.

Anyway, I think he's just about done.  I haven't gotten any painting done all week so we'll see if I can start sealing him over the weekend.

      So I was looking at my minis box yesterday and decide that it may be wise to get them done ! haha , like kid who want to cake and mother saying you will get another one when you finish the first one haha.
      Anyway I though I just do an ongoing wip, self motivation ( well actually I am quite motivate to get those in shape ).
      Primed couple minis so they are ready for paint ( minus the 2 Cmon one since I need to get some putty on those to cover the obvious seam du to the assembly ).
      And I am going to start with those bad girls...actually Raging Heroes box I ordered , finally get onto glue all those parts , they are really super small ! Kinda like Wizkids size if not worse lol , well for those at last.

      The darksword frogs are for a new scene / vignette but I will paint the figure first this time and worry about the vignette after :D..
      Have to think about my color scheme for those lust elves now , I and I think I will get onto dark purple / blue tone for clothings and more pale skin / wolf grey kind of mix maybe for the skin..
      This time since that's a set I will try to paint them in batch so I keep color somewhat homogeneous between them.
      Well I guess I have a paint schedule for couple week coming :D...

      Hi guys, so just because I love touching everything haha and to cut a bit form painting ( though almost finish with the reaper beast champion paint :)...)..I started to mess with clay stuff ..quite fun actually haha.
      I have no idea how this will end up anyway and that's ok for me to fail , that's just for practice and such and get a feel for it.
      I started trying to do some kind of carnivore plant things ( also looking at a thread here  for a step octopus like sculpt so just trying to avoid the "anatomy" things for now..)
      I may have some trouble with lower jaw..did nothing to support it but hmm will see xD..

      Hey so this is my first post, I’ve only been painting since Christmas and I don’t have many friends who do it. So this seems like the best place to get some advice. I’ve been working on this fire demon for a while now and I finally finished the main body, but just wanted some advice for the base and what I could go for. I had a lot of difficulty with the runes on the sword as I really don’t have the skill yet to do it. If you see anything else that’s rough with it let me know please :) the photos are just a few progress pictures. Thank you!

      Starting a new figure, from AoW this time.
      Currently worked on the skin parts...and I could not skip the eye on this one haha 

      Just for reference and info , I put the color used for this part ...( at least that will be a reminder for me what I used haha ).
      Skin : Mix of Vallejo model color olive green and lime green and Reaper Heather Blue.
      Nails and Teeth, Gum : Vallejo model color purple, Reaper Desert Sand and Bleached Linen
      Also a pass of Army Painter Dark Tone Wash to renforce a bit shadow.

      So I posted these sketches for new sculpt ideas to my social medias and got some good feedback. Everyone seemed to be a big fan of the Raccoon and since he was one of my favorites from the pack also, I decided to sculpt him!
      I didn't have my phone with me to get pics of the initial wire frame and GS layer but I went over that with some Fimo clay and baked an underlying structure now and I'll start layering my Primo on top of that.
