    Mr. Lovely Locks

    Presenting Mr. Lovely Locks (aka Gadrock), a character from the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. He's prepared to face the unspeakable horrors lurking in the darkness with nothing more than a jawbone knuckleduster and an overgrown fringe. Really pleased with this one, I'm happy with how his skin turned out and I didn't make a mess painting all those cuts he's acquired. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. I have a Lion:- A Gigalion in fact. I have some Hunters:- Lets do this thing. Started with the first Hunter:- I'm calling him Mr. Lovely Locks. Made some progress:- Done his skin so far (Dwarf Skin > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Skin > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Light Skin), plus some 1:1 Scarlett Red/Dwarf Skin claw marks and an Old Rose nipple.
  3. Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature. Find the WIP ->here<- I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes. I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me. As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s. The Light Fantastic She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened. After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence. Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened. Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world. "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there." She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest. Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence. It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians". Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates. All in the name of nature. But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers. "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked. She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission. She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy. Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision. Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded. "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..." A hollow bang cut off his last words. Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke. "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up. The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away. "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?" "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?" "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium." "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully. "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales." The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief. A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain. A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path. The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates. "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat." The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish." ->Linked because of nipples!<-

    Shimmering Phoenix

    A little while ago, I got a full set of metallic paints in vibrant primary colors. I immediately felt like there was huge potential to this- you could use them to add all sorts of extra depth and interest to True Metallic techniques. And one of the things that struck me was the idea that you could use them for feathers. With many birds, feathers already have a sort of metallic shine to them, so it isn't too crazy to consider using true metallic techniques to express this. While I initial was afraid that it would be hard to keep the phoenix from looking inanimate -like a bronze statue of a bird, rather than a bird. To my surprise, I didn't have to do a lot of corrections for this, since the mini really never was in much danger of looking too inorganic.

    Rawhide Dame

    Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death. Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Leather Queen Pin-up

    Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link. I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    The Flower Knight

    "During the opening stages of the Great War, it was quickly discovered that the human mind was too fragile for soldiers to spend any time in areas that had been heavily corrupted by Void Space. One of the solutions to this problem was to lift the restrictions on deploying Automaton Troopers to the front-lines. Drawing power from naturally occurring energy fields and equipped with self repair and competent AI systems, they could theoretically operate indefinitely without contact with their human creators. However, despite being deployed in large numbers, in the end they did little to halt the advance of the Void. Centuries later, many can still be found and most pose a threat to the humans they once served. This particular model, now known as a Flower Knight due to the flora it spontaneously generates around itself, is not openly hostile to anyone it comes across but will not tolerate any damage to the gardens they both create and guard." Presenting the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death. This is another one from the Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM that's been waiting for me to bring it back to the table for a final painting session or two. It's not a patch on the many, many other Flower Knights out there on the Inter-webs, but I'm really pleased with it. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    The Fighter

    Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character. Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    The Sunstalker (NSFW)

    https://imgur.com/W2NvtQC https://imgur.com/CoB0ov8 https://imgur.com/VPqucvu https://imgur.com/LLnJilq 'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains. The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden. However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured. In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.' Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster. I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Kingdom Death Kingsman

    I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster. The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out. My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.

    Kingdom Death Gorm

    Started a new campaign and wanted to add in a few of the expansion monsters, namely the gorm, the flower knight and possibly the dungbeetle knight. Well see how it goes but the first up was the gorm. Just getting started on it but I wanted thoughts on its direction and if someone has thoughts on increasing the creepy factor. I have noticed that the expansion monsters are a tad further down the rabbit hole than the main game. The classic gorm is all black but I thought it lacked a certain punch so I changes the head using a baby picture I found and I'm working on blending it back to a greenish blue body. Let me know if anyone has thoughts on what might increase its shock value. I'll add more pictures if people are interested as I go
  12. Started working on the Echoes of Death set. I have the whole set, but I also have an appalling track record when it comes to actually finishing my Kingdom Death figures, so I'm just building and painting them one at a time. Starting with the Fighter (who's gigantic):- So far, I've made a start on her skin:- It's a basecoat of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Shade Wash. I stopped here and took a piccy so I could get some idea of where her eyes are, I think buying some sort of magnifier is in my future.

    Mrs. Silence

    Presenting Mrs. Silence, the female half of the Silence character class, who came in a limited Black Friday set from Kingdom Death. Despite being quite the pain in the bum to work on, she had to be assembled and painted in lots of little stages (and I never did get the two halves of her jacket to line up properly), I'm really rather pleased with the final result. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Dung Beetle Knight

    The Dung Beetle Knight is one of Kingdom Death's more iconic monsters, and one of the more difficult ones to deal with. Here is a DBK that I got to do for a client. The mini is absolutely fantastic- the hardest thing about painting him is that he's been painted up very well quite a few times before- it is a little bit tough to make him unique and awesome at the same time. I shaded and highlighted the green with some contrasting colors to give him the effect you see here.
  15. I have a very large collection of Kingdom Death models. I think they're absolutely gorgeous and they are generally in an art style that I adore. Unfortunately, though I've continued buying them, I have not painted a single one. It's been a combination of fear of assembling them (they're notoriously fiddly - this model was in 8 pieces) and a fear of painting them because they're such beautiful figures and they're expensive as well, so there's added pressure tacked onto messing them up. So I decided that it was time to face my fears and get one painted. Since this particular figure is one that I have accidentally purchased 3 times (if you've never bought figures from the Kingdom Death shop before - they are put out in small batches that often sell out within minutes, so to get everything that you want, it's unfortunately very easy to accidentally re-purchase things you've gotten before because you don't have time to check) I figured it wouldn't be the end of the world if I messed her up. I've been working on her for a few days now. First of all, it took me 3 evenings to get her prepped and assembled. The first night, I clipped her from the sprue and worked on cleaning up mold lines (which I didn't do a fantastic job of and is really something that I have got to work on improving) the second night, I had to make a store run to buy plastic cement. This was my first hard plastic figure and I have heard countless times that it's best to use the plastic cement for them rather than superglue, but I didn't have any. Unfortunately, assembly didn't go well and I quit halfway through out of frustration. I thought that the difference between the Testors red label tube plastic cement and the Testors red label square bottle with the applicator was just that one had an applicator and one did not. Turns out the square bottle is liquid and the tube one is gel and the gel one sets up faster and was therefore easier for me to use. So I was able to finish assembly on the third night. Unfortunately, I had melted the plastic in some places and left gaps, so I had to do some repair work with some Bondic. If you're not familiar with Bondic, it is a liquid plastic in a tube that cures with a little UV light. It's great for quick and dirty gap filling. It probably wasn't the best thing for this particular application, if I'm being honest, because all it does is gap fill flat without any sort of texture buildup. I probably should have used some greenstuff, but I hate messing with greenstuff. So there are problem spots on her where there's some weird texture and it kinda just is what it is at this point and I'm ok with that. The following 2 nights were spent "priming" her with Brown Liner (spray primer is not an option for me and brush on primer was not sticking to her) and then I started in on her skin, painted her eyes (they are TINY and also half closed,) her tongue and her hair. The skin still needs some touch up here and there but this is the absolute happiest I have ever been with a skintone I've painted. It was a lot of very, very sloooooow layering working back and forth between shades with paint that was thinned nearly to a glaze consistency and then smoothed over with a glaze of the midtone. Her skin is varying mixes between MSP Chestnut Brown, MSP Golden Shadow, MSP Golden Skin, and working all the way up to MSP Golden Highlight. The pictures are washing out the highlights a bit. Her eyes were done with Warcolours One Coat Beige, Warcolours One Coat Blue, and Warcolours One Coat Black. Her tongue was a basecoat of MSP Rusty Red, then some MSP Blush Pink added in, then some Golden Skin mixed in for the highlight. Her hair was a basecoat of Warcolours Turquoise 3, then shaded with Warcolours Marine 4, then highlighted with Warcolours Turquoise 2, MSP Spectral Glow, and a final touch of MSP Spectral Glow with a bit of MSP Ghost White mixed in.

    KDM: White Lion

    So taken a few pic of this guy as I was painting him, started out priming black airbrush pre shading white, then painted the whole thing in brown before changing my mind and going this direction. That was the shadows and blending, then I did some yellow highlights on the back and mane, and detail on the face. Not sure if I'm done, maybe a bit more blending on the stomach, I think it's showing a bit too much blue.
  17. The dragon king is a very majestic mini. Like most Kingdom Death minis, he's exquisitely detailed, and simply oozes character. In addition, he's also large enough that it is hard to get a photograph of him that keeps everything in focus. I was very happy to have a chance to paint him up. I got to do a lava face base for him (something that I'll probably do something like this on my own Dragon King when I get around to painting him up). But enough words:
  18. Started on these this week, thought I'd throw them up before I went to bed. C&C always appreciated, especially on the antelope, I'm having a hard time think what I could do to improve it, but I think it was too easy to get it looking that good. Underside of the antelope is still a wip, BIGTIME, I've barely started on it. I mean the gorey sinewy muscle for the tips to make better. KDM story spoilers ahead...

    Disciple of the Flower Witch

    Presenting a Disciple of the Flower Witch (there's five of them but I'm not sure which number this one is), a mysterious denizen of the Kingdom Death world. She's also in my Kingdom Death WIP thread. Not too happy with this one, it turned out to be a much trickier mini to paint than I thought and as a result she's rather rough in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Screaming Antelope

    Started assembling this guy, the horn got glued on wrong so I had to separate it and reposition. Still going to greenstuff the gaps but got these pics to check the positioning of the horn.
  22. Survivor Zachary, assembled, green stuff'd, primed in white, base flesh tone and hair, and skin wash. Working on the eyes now, he's not supposed to look like batman.

    Rawhide Survivors

    In the aftermath of the Great Void War, humanity adopted the moniker 'Survivors' to describe themselves. It sadly proved to be a very apt description as the world had forever changed, and life had become one long struggle to survive. As it is virtually impossible for an ordinary Survivor to travel too far from their settlement, each is reliant on whatever resources are close at hand. While these primitive Survivors could be considered lucky that there is no exotic and dangerous flora or fauna in their vicinity that would require them to innovate better weapons and armour, it is only a matter of time before a wandering Void Entity discovers them. When it does, their basic bone and hide armorments will offer little protection. My band of Rawhide Survivors consists of:- Guy with a Bone Sickle and a Rawhide Whip. Girl with Bone Dagger and Bone Darts. Guy in a Skull Helm with a Bone Axe. And finally, Girl in a Skull Helm with a Bone Blade. I'm not great at batch painting, so I tried to keep these fairly simple to stop me getting fed up of working on them, despite that I think they ended up looking pretty decent. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. If you've seen my other posts here, you know I normally work on larger scale figures. But recently I took on a commission to paint the 28mm version of Kingdom Death's White Speaker. I actually painted the 54mm version a few years back, so I thought it'd be an interesting exercise to see how I could do on the 28mm one. So far my focus has been on the skin. The other sections just have some dark undercoats. I played around with my mixes a bit on this one. I started by base coating her with a 2:1 mix of Rosy Shadow and Bronzed Shadow. I then used a 4:1 mix of Chestnut Brown and Rosy Shadow to create the darkest shadows. From there I worked up to a 3:1 mix of Rosy Skin and Bronzed Skin and finally added in Fair Highlight for the brightest parts. Although she's a female figure, I still went for a more dramatic contrast range and brought out some of the muscles more than I might on a different female subject. This one is a badass warrior, so she should be pretty fit.
  25. So a couple of months ago I based and primed a handful of Kingdom Death minis, to paint when I'm stuck on other things, and put them away. Now it's time to open the box... The front row is 4 Rawhide Survivors, plus 2 special Survivors (Paul and the Sun Maiden). The middle row are the 5 Flower Witch Disciples. And the back row are the Flower Knight (I will finish you one day) and the Kings Hand. I took the Rawhide Survivors and a Witch Disciple out of the box. The male Survivors skin was painted up with Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Flesh > 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh. The female Survivors skin was done with 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > 1:1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh/Light Flesh. Witch Disciple 1 (I don't actually know which Witch is which, so this might not be the real Disciple 1), only got a basecoat of 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh and a Flesh Wash, I want to at least attempt to paint her eyes and it's easiest before I finish her skin, but I'm on my last brush and it ain't too pointy no more. So that's got to wait until I have new brushes. So at the moment I'm just basecoating my Survivors. They've got Steel Blue dress thingys, Lonestar Leather on the hard leather parts and Bonewhite weapons and Skull Helms.
