I thought he was wearing a long sleeve cloth shirt so I kept his arms black. But I saw someone else who had his arms painted with a flesh color. Oh well.
I watched some tutorials on different techniques and this is the result. I really enjoyed painting him and will be doing many more.
Haven’t painted in a few months but here is my 3rd attempt at any mini’s. This is the Yeti from the D&D Icewind Dale collectors series. I started with a grey primer, then white base coat. Washed it with nuln oil then dry brushed a light blue and white over the whole thing. I need to add horn detail still and base detail. Any tips on painting realistic horns would be greatly appreciated as well as any other feedback! Sorry, in advance for poor lighting/picture quality.
Hello all! After getting the Icestorm set all squared away I did end up filling out my roster to a full ITS capable army for Infinity, and now I need to paint them to completion so I can play! I'm starting with the Nomads first, mainly since one of the models I'm using to fill out the army is an infinity figure I've owned since before the current edition.
So here's the gang all together, and from left to right we have:
Tomcat Engineer, Zondcat, Tomcat with DEP, Warcor, Reverend Custodier, Lunokhod Sputnik Remote, 2 CrazyKoalas, and a Bandit Hacker.
And speaking of the first Infinity figure, that would be the reverend Custodier. Her priming job is the worst I've ever done, and I cleaned it up, so how see how painting her goes, but she's all base coated and first in line.
So, as of... two days ago... I have my Reaper Bones III pledge in hand. Rather than buy single figures, however, this time I bought swarms of *multiple* mook monsters - lots of giants, tauren, ect - and have committed myself to getting them all painted to tabletop in the next month or two.
I've made a bold first step in that direction with the completion of these crazy kids! I got three packs of the yetis, since they come up in Against the Giants (the main campaign I was playing at the time of the kickstarter) a lot, and also since they were awesome sculpts done cheap. I wanted enough for a decent band for AtG or a random encounter, but also some to paint as bigfoots, since the tribal clothing they had seemed to work for either.
I decided to give these guys a shot as a speedpaint, and see where that got me. I expect most of these will end up as speedpaints; there's an aweful lot of them.
So, first: Proof of Completion on the Yeti warband:
Real blurry, yeah. They weren't obliging me as a group; my old foe Focusmort come back to haunt me, perhaps.
There we go. A little more obliging, on there own.
So, to paint these up, I basecoated with Ultramarine Blue straight onto the plastic, then drybrushed on Linen White. Deadrose Red in the mouths, mixed with the white around the eyesockets, with Walnut brown for the eyes. Quick and easy - all eight took a bit under 4 hours, with the basecoating done all in one night, drybrushing before work, and then picking out details after. Nothing too fancy, but I'm happy with them, and my other players thought they looked amazing. They have low standards, but they're also the only ones I need to impress, so...
Next up, the Bigfoots! These I'm much more excited about. Group shot:
Based Walnut Brown, drybrushed Ruddy Leather; mouth is one of the lighter reds, and teeth and eyes are Linen White over ultramarine. These look rocking - they really work as bigfoots.
All in all, I'm thrilled with these for 5 hours work. Gotta base them somehow though...
And since we haven't all seen them: the sculpts for these are amazing - heavy and substantial in all the right ways. Enough diversity to make 2-3 sets not look like clones, with great accents. Totally worth getting for forest monsters if you don't do a arctic setting, and they'd probably make a neat swamp monster too...
Next up... probably some taurs.
