I don’t often do WIP.

I figured I’d start one.

I’m still working toward Reign of Winter Adventure Path appropriate models.  Kord has a Viking vibe.


He’s been trimmed, washed, brown-liner primered.  I removed the glued on piece of his wolf pelt to get at other stuff.  I’ll glue it on later, then green stuff and finish painting.


I’m blocking in basecoats now.  Skin and furs so far.BF556660-ED7F-45D4-8E30-DBA41475520B.thumb.jpeg.edebb7f204825001e8eb405e07b7234c.jpeg081AF60C-90CF-49A9-9DCB-BF118A549E17.thumb.jpeg.00865fb18d20b8e9b55a0e8e8410b6a0.jpeg

Good start!


I mostly use WiPs to keep track of what I've done and what colors I use for situations where I abandon a mini for a while then can't remember what it was I'd done...

That’s a good thought.

I guess I could put colors in the accomplish that.



Gray bits are stone grey.

Skin is Rosy Shadow.

Skirt is Christmas Wreath.

Wraps/Under linens are Khaki Highlight

Mahogany Brown on some of the leather goods.  I wanted some reddish hue to play off the green.


I may change the creamy color of the foot wraps to be more medium brown...

To continue:

Decided on Bronze/Copper for the horns, crossguard/pommel, and a few assorted metal trim.  Based in Tarnished Copper.  That goes on thin, so what you see is 3 coats.


Did the weapon handles and leather belt/straps in Uniform Brown.



I want to paint the rock gray, but that leaves me trying to paint the ground as either grass or snow.  Any ideas?

Good thought.  I don’t have any birch pod debris.  I’ll look for some...

Did change the foot wraps to Uniform Brown, as you can see in prior photo.


Now, the beard is based in Auburn Shadow.


The rock is Stone Grey.

The base grass is Christmas Wreath.

Added another coat of skin tone.




Basecoats are done.  On to the wash/glaze step.

Thank you both.


Glazes/Washes done.

Armor / Fur got Reaper Black Wash.

Skin and Copper got GW Reikland Flesh Shade.

Leather stuff got GW Agrax Earthshade.

Skirt and Grass got GW Biel-Tan Green.

Rock got all of the above.





Next, highlighting/layering.

I’ll start with the skin, which forces me to decide how to address his half-hidden beady little eyes!

      So I'm going to be starting a dwarven reclamation campaign in the fall, and I had 2 copies of the Dwarf butcher. I though it would be perfect to do one as a living butcher (who I can also use as an NPC townie) and his barbarian ancestor spirit that I can put on the table when he's a ragin'.
      So far the living butcher is mostly done (need to do his base and some touchups - I don't know how all of you are doing the eyes, because I can't see them even with a visor), and the ghostly ancestor is mostly done minus the ghostly glow I'll be drybrushing later. I do have a few process pics to post.

      I'm working up some modern adventurers. I've always rather liked the sort of British modness of this figure.
      For Bones, I prime with some thinned-down Reaper Brown Liner, which both shows details and gives a paint-friendly surface for later layers to grip.

      All paints used (after the primer) are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
      Usually I rough in the skin first. This is pretty rough. It's a simple mix of Titanium White and Burnt Sienna, with a bit of pink mixed from Titanium White and Red Oxide. I left the eye socket with the primer showing. This figure kind of wants to be colored 1960's-style, with very dramatic eye makeup and almost invisible lips, but I think I will try something different.

      I painted another little mouseling druid. I went with a darker, grumpier scheme with this one. I love painting the mouselings!

      Recently finished this for @Kangaroorex had a lot of fun playing with the spring theme and a monster. Also first time I've tried to build a flower (wire with paper wrapping for leaves, heavier paper for flower itself, and magicsculpt for some of the other details).
