Bones 3 Iron Golem
Brianuk posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingEnjoyed painting this iron golem from Bones 3. Just used basic drybrushing and washes, then added some 5mm foam (squashed a bit) to the base to carry on the flagstone effect that the model already has. I didn't go mad blending in the original and new material, just wanted to show it as cracks in a stone floor.

77514 Iron Golem
kristof65 posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingA speed paint I did using Siri's tutorial on rust. I actually did this at the same time I was laying down a rusty undercoat for my Rottweiler grav tank. Since I was doing the various colors for the tank, I did several terrain pieces, a couple vehicles and this all at the same time. By no means a competition level paint job, but pretty good for tabletop with what I figure is less than 20-30 minutes into it.

Speed Paint 77514 - Iron Golem
Laoke posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHi, long time no type! I've been waiting for the Bones III figures to arrive specifically for this figure, because I wanted to try an old technique I used to use - Tamiya Clear paints over a metallic base. This is pretty much a speed technique for armored figures. It took me about an hour (not including time to let coats dry) to: Prime the figure using Reaper Blue Liner Base coat with Vallejo Model Air Steel Wash with Reaper Steel Wash Drybrush with Vallejo Model Air Silver Finish with Tamiya Clear Smoke over the top (this is effectively a tinted gloss sealant) Dot the sensor holes with Reaper Pure White & add two coats of Reaper Clear Red over the top The base is Reaper Concrete glazed up with Reaper Stone Wash used for definition. It's delibrately very clean - I could scuff it up and make it look a lot more worn, but I like the clean lines for this figure.
hosercanadian posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI managed to find a bit of brush time and did these guys up just in time for my regular RPG session. Nothing too fancy, and I did rush the stitch golems a bit. I had fun with the flesh golem and making him look cobbled together from spare parts a bit. The Iron Golem OSL I would like some advice on. I got a look I am happy with on the head, but nowhere else. Since it is for tabletop I will settle for now but I would like some feedback to improve. Thanks.
My inaugural Bones 3 paint, the Iron Golem (menacing Sir Forscale that I got from either a paint-and-take at PAX or a learn-to-paint kit, can't remember which). I'm not sure it really comes out in the picture, but I started with black/gray zenithal priming layers, airbrushed a not-too-thick layer of a bright metallic over it, dark wash, and then heavily shaded it with pure black glazes (there's supposed to be some left/right shading with the glazes, but it doesn't show well in the pictures I don't think). Then touched all the gouges with the metallic again, and painted the optics and vents with red and orange, on the assumption that iron golems are powered by some kind of eldritch furnace internally. (Sir Forscale was splashed with whatever bright primary color was close at hand, like you do when you're a complete noob at a paint-and-take, and I hope I got the right SKU from the list that came with my shipment.)
A bunch of Large-sized D&D monsters
Trodax posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI've been trying to tick off some of those D&D Monster Manual entries, and painted up a bunch of large beasties. I kind of speed-painted these (spent a bit more time on the Oni), but am pretty happy with how they turned out. Feels good to produce stuff for the collection. The Brass Bull is from Reaper of course (the Bones variant), the four-armed ape is from Bombshell Miniatures, whilst the Iron Golem, Stone Elemental and Fire Elemental are all from Otherworld Miniatures and the Oni is from Zenit Miniatures. They're all really cool minis I think. Anyway, hope you like em!
Bones Iron Golem Verdigris Practice WIP
jesgriebel posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI've always wanted to do a verdigris miniature. It's been nearly 13 months since I first picked up a brush, and while I still have a lot to learn, I am far more comfortable trying new things now as opposed to when I started. Anyway, this is my WIP Iron Golem. I wanted to do light verdigris--not fully consumed metal, and so I kept my effect to the places that I thought would be weathered most. While it wasn't in progress in this set of pictures, I had only just slapped on my base layers, I am also going to attempt a rust-effect on the sword. For the metal, I've used a combination of four paints: Reaper Scorched Metal, Reaper Ancient Bronze, Reaper Antique Gold and Vallejo Game Colour Brassy Brass. For the base coat, I mixed equal parts Ancient Bronze and Scorched Metal to Brassy Brass in order to create a dark, brownish-red metal nearly that of a mahogany. Then, I used different combinations of the Ancient Bronze, Brass Brass and Antique Gold and layered highlight upon highlight, to give the metal a realistic-look. The verdigris has (so far) consisted of: Vallejo Game Colour Turquoise, Reaper Surf Aqua and Reaper Mint Green. I made MANY different combinations of the paints to build up the verdigris, about 7 or 8, from greener hues to more blueish, brighter hues, so I can't really give too much of a recipe guide unfortunately. In places where I wanted the verdigris less prominent, such as the shadows under the arms or in the small of the back, etc., I used heavily diluted Army Painter Strong Tone Ink. To give some of the verdigris a greener tint in places where I wanted it to have less "pop," I used heavily diluted Army painter Soft Tone Ink, as it is a very soft, almost tan brown. Anyways, the mini is about 65% completed, and while I know that that's a bit far along for a WIP, i really wanted to try and document at least SOME of my progress to get some input, suggestions and opinions.
77168,77169,77170,77171 Golems Galore
araziel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingLike I mentioned I had a productive few days last week, and I had a few more after the earth elemental was all done- probably mostly due to the cheerleaders on here Since I was just done with the stone golems I figured I might as well finish all the golems while I was at it. So here they are, 2x Vampire golems all done. Removed the pants from the clay golems as I just find that stuff silly, other than that they're all stock. I know I've said I don't like having two identical models, but golems are an exception to that rule. Golems are pretty much made to, say, stand guard at each side of a doorway, and having two that are the exact same adds to that imo. I did all their eyes white with the same green fluo paint so they have a nice magic golem glow. I might add some dry/dead static grass on the bases, but I'm not sure yet. I kinda like them muddy and cohesive like they are now. On another note, I keep posting these show off threads with SKUs etc for every model I finish (and feel is good enough to be seen by others :P). I thought I read somewhere that that was the prefered way to go about it (due to ease of finding the model you want an example off etc), however now I see a lot of folks posting collected show off threads instead. Sooo if that's prefered I'll start one of those with my next submission instead.
77168: Bones Battleguard Golem
scipio.au posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingWhen painting the “Iron” Golem, I wanted to play with warm metallics (copper, bronze) and verdigris, so I happily disregarded the “Iron” portion of the model. Much of the model was actually fun to work with. I utilised a lot of heavy drybrushing that worked well on the model to bring out all the slight imperfections of the cast, and helped to create a bit of a pitted, cast-metal look, which was perfect for my ends. The rear shot of the left forearm shows it pretty well. While I’m not especially happy with the way the sword blade turned out, being a cheap Bones model, I’m happy to call it good enough. The plastic of the blade was uneven and frankly an unpleasant pain to work with. The face was a bit of a mess. To sort of salvage it, I just painted it gold in the end, and gave it a hit of ink and a small highlight. The gems on the back of the shoulders and sword blade, and also the eyes were done using the usual GW-style gem technique and hit with gloss varnish. For what it’s worth, I think the glowing OSL effect on the Reaper website looks better, and if I’d seen it earlier I probably would have ripped it off, but c’est la vie. The bags and chain on the back of his butt were a badly-cast mess, and so they got a very quick “good enough” job. The real highlight of the model to me was playing with some new mixes of paint washes along with the layered drybrushing to create the aged verdigris effect, which will no doubt make a reappearance later down the line on some venerable space marines of some description. I also did some dungeon furniture at the same time, which I’ll have to photograph down the line and show here as well. Base is my usual for this kind of thing – Proxie models 40mm round base with the plastic Bones base glued on top and a bit of acrylic putty to flatten it all out before sand and Army Painter tufts. Anyway, as a low-stress learning experience and relatively fast model to paint, I consider this guy to be a success. Now he can sit on the shelf until Pathfinder calls him to duty!
