14016: Judas Bloodspire, Necropolis Warlord - A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT by malefactus and Pingo

Recommended Posts

I painted his buttons, front and back, gold metallic.


I thought the foliage was beginning to look a little faded so I brightened it up. I may have gone a little too cheery. At any rate, the highlights are mostly Phthalo Green toned to a natural color with Burnt Sienna and lightened and brightened with bright lemony Hansa Yellow Opaque. The shadows are Phthalo Green, Burnt Sienna, and Ultramarine Blue.







Sometimes when things look a little flat to me I just mix up a transparent shadow color from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna and use it to shade and tone the entire figure. I've done that here, using it to darken the foliage and paving stones and add depth to his red robes.











Now it's beginning to look like it might be nighttime!

I prepped the cloak for pinning.


I'm going to use the closer positioning I worked out in the thread A proposed alternative position for the cape on 14016: Judas, Necropolis Warlord and 77160: Judas Bloodspire, Vampire, where I discovered that if you tilt the cloak down closer to his back than is shown in the store, not only is it more secure but the swoopy bit on his left very logically attaches to his arm.


In this case, the bit on his right will slip just under his sword, and part of the back will rest on one of Malefactus' mushrooms, which will provide a little more support.


I checked the angles and drilled the cloak first, since I figured it would be more tricky owing to thinness and it would be easier to match the hole on the sturdier, thicker figure.  This is the figure and the cloak with a snipped piece of paper clip in the cloak, used to help match the holes. The hole in his back is a little difficult to see.



There's a better angle:



I tested the length of the pin, then glued it into his back as probably the more stable place to leave it. I'm not gluing both pieces together until they are more fully painted.



Speaking of which, I have ideas for that cloak ...

      This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Mechanist, a nice little character for the more open-minded steampunk campaign. The quote in the title of the thread is from Gail Carriger, author of the "Soulless" steampunk series.
      I actually finished him around Christmas, but I never put up the Show Off thread. So here he is. Questions, critiques and comments welcome. WIP thread here.

      This is the mermaid from the old Grenadier boxed set #6004, "Monsters of Mythology" from their Fantasy Lords range.
      I used to have the set, once upon a time. This was one of my favorite figures from it (though I painted it very differently back in the day and I am pretty sure my memories of how well I painted it are seriously rose-tinted).
      There isn't a WIP thread.




      And because I do like to play around with photographic backgrounds and water effects:

      Sobek was a complex crocodile god of the ancient Egyptians. He was god of fertility, wild sexytimes and strength, and also a protector against the ravages of the river Nile and its inhabitants.
      The khopesh was a kind of ancient Egyptian sword evolved from a battle axe. The one on this sculpt is a little thicker and more swordlike than most of the ones I've seen, which makes it sturdier on a miniatures scale.
      The figure is Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, sculpt by Bob Ridolfi. I didn't make a WIP thread.
      I was halfway done with him before I realized that he was supposed to be a stone statue with cracks and chips in the stone. Maybe another time I will paint a version of him like that, but in this case I overlooked the texture and painted him with fairly realistic crocodile and corroded bronze colors.
