Need help IDing undead/mecha miniature

Recommended Posts

This guy stands on a GW base but, according the the local aficionados, isn't.  It's in 5 or so pieces, stands around 10cm tall if I recall, and is molded in a very light but not flimsy plastic--I had to hold it a while to make sure it wasn't resin.  Ideas?

Any chance this was part of a Kickstarter or custom printed?

 

My Google-fu is normally fairly potent, but I have been bested.  I thought I had a lead with some Corvus Belli minis (there is some visual similarity to the Avatar), but ended up with nothing.

is that the color of the material, or does it have a coat of primer?

That's bare plastic.  The pic makes it look just a little lighter than in person, but it has sort of a finecast color and feel.  Also, unless it's an as-yet unheard of machine, I'm pretty sure it's not printed.

The other half suggested that the style might indicate a District 9 type of mech suit.

I had a brief look through the weta stuff and while it's familiar it doesn't seem quite right.

I'm really shocked... this was posted March 9th, and still no answer... Usually these sorts of posts are answered within hours, if not minutes... :blink:

Tell me about it!

I can't find it..I thought it resembled the style of the Empire of Men range, but I can't find anything like it.

People here are good at this, but not omniscient.  There have been at least a couple of cases where minis were never identified.

I'm drawing a blank on this one too.

Having said that, I managed to find it shortly afterward. :rolleyes:

 

It is from the Faceless faction of a Kickstarter boardgame called The Edge: Dawnfall by Awaken Realms.

Sometimes it's just a matter of getting the right set of eyes (or search terms...).

My hero!  And here I am, waiting for this Kickstarter too!  The boys at my FLGS will be pleased, and so will I!

 

@Reaper forumites in general:  I knew you guys could do it!

ID successful. Well done. But this raises a question:

 

These are mirror prints of each other?

Is this photo ^ mirrored flopped left-right ? 

 

(The claw and shield are on opposite arms  and the legs are reversed.)

My photo is correct, or at least not mirrored.  I was kind of wondering that myself.

The original pic with the box comes off as rendered to me.

I think yours is the right one.

      My painting time is pretty limited these days, but I still fit it in here and there. I find elementals to be excellent and relaxing subjects for brief speedpainting sessions; their crude natures are very forgiving for the time-constrained.
       

       
      This guy is a pretty hefty piece of metal & a nice unique sculpt.

      As I said on my Saproling's topic, I had today off, so...  I decided that in addition to the saprolings, I'd knock out some tabletop quality ghouls. They were already assembled and primed, so the first thing was to paint the undead flesh. I used Vampire Shadow for their sickly skin. It didn't quite match the ghoul I'd painted before, but it was close enough. I sadly didn't always take good notes...

      After that I decided that as these were primarily going to be gaming ghouls, and not for a unified force for Kings of War, they'd each get their own clothing color: Red, Green, Blue, Tan, and Dark Brown. I used Rusty Red, Muddy Olive, Rich Indigo, Desert Stone, and Ruddy Flesh. The eyes were all painted with Walnut Brown, as were the spikes sticking out of them. 


      Then I washed them all with a mix of 4 parts sepia wash and 1 part black wash. 

      A little bit of highlighting with the base clothing color, then it was time to paint the bases black, and then flock them! Oh, and a bit of watered down rusty red around the mouth.

       
      Oh, and aged pewter on the spikes and the cleaver. 
       

      Looking good for such quick work.

      I plan on posting something a little more friendly looking very shortly. coughwyrmgeardragoncough but in the mean time I painted this for fun and practice!
       
      Also would take some advice on dealing with small details like a face. On this miniature it was nearly impossible to just paint specific details of the face without smooshing the entire face with paint. I'd wanted to give the figure blood red eyes. That didn't work out and I ended up painting over the face in white to start over again.
       
      I do overall like how this miniature turned out. The bones aren't crispy perfect white, the clothes look like a creature that's been walking through mud and dirt for a long time. Didn't know how to paint the base so I went with some of my extra black wash which worked out as it sort of made it look like it was standing on bone.
       
      Tried a new technique on the scythe. I did the base coat as filigree silver, then I did a paint of dragons blood red, then when that dried i went over it again with the black wash to give it this dried blood effect. A technique that is probably standard but one I personally just learned by experimenting!

      Six skellies, painted quickly during several lunch breaks, with little intent other than to be available for the table.
       
      Given the state of their weapons, it is ironic that I used them to "knock the rust off" a few of my skills.

      Color coded for ease of D&D mook-murder. I had a little fun with some traditional heraldic divisions on the shields.

      Paints are all Reaper MSP. Blackened Brown played a large role, as did a lovely fleshy-toned sample paint.
       
      ... Pictures are quite bad, actually. I may reshoot at home.

      I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking. 
      I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking. 
       
      So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind. 
      I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome. 
       
      BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
