  1. Cleaned, primed and based. Ready for paint! This one should stay SFW, if I do add a tiny bit of color to the forbidden spots, I'll do it at the end of the project :) I did learn one thing about CMoN's plastic bases, they're not the 'good' model plastic that melts with model cement (as KD's plastic does). So I needed to break out the superglue and will keep fingers crossed she stays put. I may need to pin her if she breaks loose, and I hate pinning high heels! One upside to the failed model cement experiment: I pushed her down pretty hard, so her feet conformed a bit better to the base.
  2. My Gen Con entry for this year. Overall I'm very happy with her. It's one of the best faces I've done so far. Had a lot of trouble assembling her though. The spear arm gave me fits as it snapped off several times and afterwards I couldn't seem to get it on straight and without gaps again. eventually I was able to fill it with a tiny amount of green stuff. Also had a little trouble pinning her to the base. You can tell she's not exactly flat on it, she actually floats a tiny bit above it and I just couldn't seem to fix it. Also she's leaning, less now than she was but she's still leaning. I tried to do some OSL with the parts of the spear near her hand but I just couldn't make it look right. So I abandoned that idea for now.

    The Phoenix

    Presenting the Phoenix from Kingdom Death, a weird bird/hand/old man combination. it has a WIP thread here. Finally! I've been working on this one for awhile now, and I'm happy that it's done. Unfortunately, it's sheer size has made it difficult to photograph (No idea how I'm going to eventually take pictures of it's much larger friend the Dragon King), and it's ended up looking pretty flat, but hopefully you can get a decent idea of what it looks like as I'm rather proud of it. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.

    A Lonely Tree WIP

    Was planning on the Dragon King being my next big Kingdom Death project, but I fell in love with this as I built it:- Currently waiting for all the greenstuffed gaps to dry (Kingdom Deaths plastics are lovely, but I do think they could do more to disguise the joins between the pieces). At least I earned some more mini-prepping experience points.

    Kingdom death expansions

    Hi all, Its been a bit slow for me painting wise, but I am always on the look out for great deals. Today I got an email from Kingdom death.. They are selling all, read ALL the expansions for the game, for the next 7 days, before they go back to their original plan to bring out 1 expansion every few months.. So if you want one, or all, now is the time.. Ends on 21st March
  6. Don't have the greatest track record in finishing large minis, but lets give it a try:- He's only partially assembled at this stage, letting the glue dry overnight before trying to attach his feet. I also have 20+ tiny hands to glue to his wings, but that's a job for when I'm fully awake!

    Lion Armour Survivors

    Presenting a full set (plus pin-up) of Lion Armour wearing Survivors from the Kingdom Death: Monster game, there's a small WIP of them here. I kept the painting on them very, very simple as I'm not one of life's natural batch painters, plus I'm a bit so-so on the minis themselves (personally I would've preferred a set of nice monopose ones to represent each armour style rather than these very manikin-like multipose kits). But seeing them in a group like this, they don't look that bad. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.

    KD: Dragon Sacrifice

    I painted this one as a super-late Christmas present for one of my best friends. She specializes in Chinese policy, so I thought she'd like the dragon. Here's the front linked due to, um, maybe too much skin? Front View The base is a plastic Arcane from that micro arts kick-starter with CMON. I used deep ocean, fair skin, nightshade purple and leather white for the blue side and then mahogany brown, chestnut gold, palomino gold and buckskin pale for the golds.
  9. In preparation for 2016 I'm trying to get some of my half-finished 2015 minis off the shelf and into the done pile. I had no color scheme in mind for this mini so I grabbed some paint at random. Most of the time that I do this I decide that it was a horrible idea and put the paints back, but on occasion I just roll with it. Just to practice something different I desaturated all of the paints with white and gave her the '80s pastel look. About halfway through I did decide that I didn't really like this mini, but hey, she was a bonus and not the reason I made my purchase in the first place. For her base I kept with the same look as my previous KD:M minis, but just slapped the paint on quickly for tabletop quality. Also, this is the first mini I've finished using the Reaper skintones that I picked up earlier this month. It's probably the worst face that I've called finished in a long time, but she's off the table.

    A Kingsman

    Presenting a Kingsman, (magical, bio-mechanical soldiers that guard the Kings Realm from all intruders) from Kingdom Death. Struggled with his inner, light blue cape, I found the folds weird and couldn't get it shaded to my liking, but I think the rest came out nicely. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, greatly appreciated.
  11. Another week, another survivor that I don't know the name of. (Fluff, who reads it?) For the second female I attempted to conquer the Scale75 Arabic Shadow. Of the paints in the flesh set, it is the one that I find kind of odd. While it's worked ok as a minor component of darker mixes it just doesn't look right next to any of the other colors, especially the lighter ones. In order to get my shadows and highlights to play well together, I tried to make sure that each mix was at least a quarter Arabic Shadow. After many mixes and much layering I've decided that you can get a decent skin out of it, but it was a whole lot of work to recreate something that I believe already exists as part of Reaper's Olive triad. What I have isn't well blended, but I've lost interest in her. This survivor is topless though she does have a conveniently placed arm that covers her just as well as any other fantasy female garb. As such I don't really consider her NSFW, but I've gone ahead and attempted to create a dropbox photo group using just one link. It's working for me, but if anyone has an issue with the link I'll add in separate direct links for each photo. The images are autocropped for preview, but clicking one will start a slideshow. Female Survivor Once I finish the lion I'll do a group shot of all the starting pieces for the game. If I'm feeling particularly motivated I might even touch some of them up with the feedback I've received so far. That said, I'm starting to feel a bit of KD:M burnout so I might work on something unrelated this week.

    Kingdom Death Survivor - Zachary

    This guy took a while and is probably over the top for a gaming mini, but I present Zachary of the First Story of Kingdom Death: Monster! Flesh tones are basically what I used for Rollo last winter. Golden Highlight, Tanned Skin, Redstone Highlight, Russet Brown. I subbed in VGC Ivory for Linen White. I added Muddy Soil to deepen the shadows and create some definition in them. The cloth is basically Alien Flesh shaded with P3 Coal Black and tinted with glazes of Camo Green. Highlights mixed in Ivory and I deepened the shadows, mixing Walnut Brown into the Coal Black. The slight bit of NMM was that Coal Black/Walnut Brown mix brought up with Alien Flesh and Ivory. For the base, I just tried to emulate the game board's colors while sticking to colors used on the mini previously. WIP begins here
  13. Once again its Sunday night, which means it's time to snap some pics of another Kingdom Death Survivor. When I started these I wasn't really planning on painting one per week, but if I keep it up that would be 52 minis/year. I would be happy with that. This time it's a female survivor, whose name I do not know but I'm sure Cash does. For this survivor I decided to try out a few paints from the Scale75 Blood and Fire set that I hadn't used yet. Her dress was basecoated in Fuchsia and shaded with Sunset Purple. To get some more practice with extreme highlighting I took some parts up to white. Her back is kinda flat so I decided to freehand in a spine, but I didn't reference how many vertebrae should fit so I'm almost assuredly wrong on that.
  14. I should start looking these survivor's names up so I have something to call them. Anyway over the weekend I painted the other male starting survivor from the game box. I did some experimenting with the shadow portion of the Scale75 flesh set to try and make a more realistic African skin tone that I had done with my fire giant. I don't know anyone with dreads so I attempted so googling to get a better idea of how the highlights work. In the end I still just made it up. Like the last one, he's not sealed yet so I can use these pics to see if anything needs a touch-up first. ... and I see that I haven't finished the lantern. Updated with a name thanks to Cash.
  15. My first KD:M mini has reached the almost complete stage so it's time to take some dual purpose pics! These are part show-off, part see if there's anything I want to touch-up before sealing images. Honestly I can see plenty that would need work if these KD minis were destined for anything higher than the tabletop, but they are instead on a collision course with greasy pizza fingers. For those that didn't see my posts in the assembly thread, I decided to attempt a cold light on white stones. To keep with that idea I attempted a blue light in the lantern. I initially painted his cloth white, but didn't like how it looked next to the stones and went for something completely different. I am now adding red to my list of colors that I can't photograph. It appears to be very intense in the photograph, but is not quite so overpowering in hand. Since he's not going to be entered into any online painting competition I'm inclined to leave it as is and not worry about how it photographs. Here's how the base looks from above, and pretty color accurate. Sometimes my camera does behave.

    Storm Knight

    I present the Storm Knight by Kingdom Death. Fairly pleased with him, painting a cape made out of clouds was as difficult as I imagined, but I think I did okay. Slightly annoyed that you can't make out the water effects on his base though, it took a week to painstakingly slowly fill up that puddle! As always, all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.

    The Messenger of Courage

    The second of my four Messengers from Kingdom Death is all painted up:- Her WIP thread can be found here. Very pleased with this one (she looks a bit better in hand than the photos indicate!) As always, any comments and criticisms, are greatly appreciated.
  18. Making a start to part 2 of my saga, with the Messenger of Courage:- Just assembled and primed at the moment. Didn't like the sculpted ground effect on her fancy base insert, so I smooshed some Pumice Putty between the faces, should look a bit better when painted.

    The Messenger of the Spiral Path

    The first finished mini from my big pile of Kingdom Death: Monster stuff (and I don't even have most of it yet!), The Messenger of the Spiral Path:- Grrr... Capes, my old enemy returns! Apart from that though, I'm rather pleased with him, think he looks pretty good. You can find his WIP thread here. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  20. This is the first step on my epic journey to paint up my entire Kingdom Death: Monster set (and hopefully many, many as yet unmade future expansions), I'm starting with the Messenger of the Spiral Path:- I've left him fairly unassembled because there's quite a bit that will be inaccessible after his cape is fully attached (and his left arm won't fit properly with the cape off). So the current plan is to paint him from the waist down, his back, his right arm and the inside of his cape, then finish assembly, then finish painting him. I'm kinda making a lot more work for myself as most of this won't even be visible on the finished mini, but if I leave it, I'll know it's unpainted and it'll nag at me. Made a start on painting:- Hate painting red! So far there's 5 different colours on there (Carnage Red, 1:1 Carnage Red/Blood Red, Blood Red, 1:1 Blood Red/Vallejo Vermilion, Vermilion) and yet the Carnage Red basecoat has barely changed. Not a huge problem as most of this won't be seen, but I'm hoping the outside of the cape (also red) goes a bit better. Gotta try and make more progress tomorrow, as I've signed up to a thing on another forum and he's due to be presented at the end of September.

    A Storm Knight WIP

    Yep. Another Kingdom Death mini from me (can't get enough of the stuff at the moment), this time it's the fearsome Storm Knight:- Didn't get too far today though:- I've only managed to basecoat the steel and metallic blue parts in Nightmare Black. I think this is going to be an even harder project than I thought.

    Kingdom Death Chosen

    Kingdom Death: Monster is finally making its way into the hands of backers. I’ve had a chance to play it, and I can say that the game, and game pieces are quite good. It is gritty, tough and each time your tiny colony survives a nemesis, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. Now, while I don’t have any of the new minis from the game painted up, I do have one of Kingdom Death’s resin figures done. Here is the “Chosen.†While he does not yet have any rules, reading over the fluff blurb on him, I’m pretty sure that he’ll make it into a Kingdom Death expansion sometime (probably as a nemesis).
  23. Alright, finally got a lot of stuff off my painting desk and I am going to paint something that I want to paint instead of something for someone else. This is the first KD mini that I have had a go at so this should be fun/interesting/learning experience. Assembly was not too bad even though all the pieces and parts are tiny and delicate and resin. I will say that the mold lines are tiny and a pain to get off since I was worried about snapping a piece or going too far into detail. Took my time and still managed to miss one that ran down the entire right arm, ended up seeing it after priming, I think I got it all now. Not sure which lighting is better here so take your pick. Primed with duplicolor(?) white sandable auto primer, pretty good stuff from this first try, I may stick with it. I laid down a thinned coat of tanned flesh. Again with the lighting issue.. Then two more layers of thinned tanned flesh. That is where she stands right now, tanned flesh triad will continue after this busy weekend. C&C always welcome.

    The Flowers of The Forest

    So I recently discovered this photographer (NSFW): http://www.bellakotak.com/ I have been very inspired by her style and composition and I thought some of these photos would make spectacular miniatures. I decided to give it a shot with a little scene using the prone pregnant woman from the Wet Nurse. I've also wanted to give a sculpted base like what Corporea does a try So here is my start: There is a bit of the organic sculptural elements on the back but you can't see it in raw sculpey.

    Twilight Knight - Order Version

    'Twilight Knights are part of an organization dedicated to making sure humanity's glorious past is never forgotten. By gathering together what relics and fragments of knowledge they can find, they hope to restore at least a little of what was lost in the Great War. More heavily armoured and with greater mental conditioning than their regular counterparts. Order Knights are the shield of the organization, deployed to defend areas and items deemed to be of great importance. They stand steadfast in the face of whatever Void born madness comes their way.' Still struggling with taking photos at the moment (though these are a significant improvement over the first ones I took of this guy). A WIP thread can be found here. Overall I'm fairly pleased with how he came out, there's some serious room for improvement on his cape (I get stuck when the folds get large) but I'm getting there slowly. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
