Good day, i have been painting for a little while, but recently i have tried to push myself further... this is my second mini to do for LGS painting contest (i won the first one they did) .... have about a week left to finish him. so i am planning a little more highlights and more work on the weapons....
if it wasn't for a local friend i would still be painting in blocked colors and calling it done, but he keeps pushing me to try more hah!
i am open for input and criticism on him... :)
Ok, Here I go starting another WIP. I had the hankering for Frostgrave only no one around who wanted to try. So I decide to finally give the Dark Alchemy solo scenarios a try. I had skeletons, rats, and a stand-in for the alchemical monstrosity. I looked around and thought, hey those WWWOZ Tin man painted up red and gold would look cool as the FIre-Flingers for the final scenarios. I also decided I only wanted to paint them as gaming pieces. I haven't really posted anything cause my camera broke, and I really haven't wanted to pick up another. So I'm starting this WIP to practice with my phone camera, as well as post here a little more often.
Here was the first of four I need for the scenario, as it stands at the moment. Photo work still in progress as well:
Unfortunately, I had a TPK in scenario 2. The scenario called for Wizard or Apprentice and 4 of soldiers for the mission. They all went down, and I rolled unbelievable less than 5 for all of them on the survival roll. I'm less than inspired to complete these guys now. but I'll carry on and hope that the apprentice can survive the final encounter with whats left of the warband when I finish.
Time to paint another bust.
This one is from El Greco 1:12th scale and comes in a nice tin.
A depiction of a seasoned Crusader.
I will paint him as a Knight Hospitaller instead of the often seen Knight Templars.
This means mine will have a Black Cape, A Red Surcoat and a White Cross.
Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long.
So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"?
I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead.
I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv".
I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018.
I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings.
The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female).
I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes.
Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green).
Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard.
I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty).
Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front.
Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values.
The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class.
