Dain Deepaxe, Silver Anniversary Edition
wdmartin posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI got my brother a set of Reaper's core paints for Christmas -- he's just getting into painting. Since I ordered them in November, I wound up with FOUR of the silver anniversary Dain Deepaxe, and offered to help him break in his paints by painting this one up. This one came damaged -- missing half of one horn and with a crack down the center of the mini. You can see it on his right shoulder. I decided to paint this one because the damage made it more interesting: clearly, he's been in desperate combat against some dread beast whose terrible claws clove straight through his horn and cracked his armor before he finally laid it low. I've also decided not to ask for a replacement. Even after giving one to my brother, I've got two unpainted ones left. That'll be plenty, thanks. His left arm is also different from stock -- I messed up the pin placement and it just would not fit normally, so I had to use green stuff to give him a bit more bicep than he'd usually have on that side. Let that be a lesson, people: get your pins centered!
For your perusal, Rasia w/ Spiked Chain and Dain Deepaxe: Dain was the last mini I was able to paint before packing up about three years or so ago, and Rasia represents my return to the hobby, as seen in this WIP thread. The latter suffered some paint loss on her left leg upon removal from the mounting base, visible here before being patched up. Rasia was also an experiment with the Red Hair triad. Overall, I’m pleased with the results. While I’m still a beginner, these two are a far cry from some of my early attempts.
LTPK5: Rasia (02823) and Dain (02811)
Emli posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHuzzah! I have finished all my L2PKs! Lessons learned: Metallics and I do not get along. They do have their uses, but I think I'll be sticking to some level of NMM unless I really need them. To work on for next time: Focus on one mini at a time, and try not to give up and rush near the end. I keep having to work on this one, because I keep failing at it! In both cases, I had grand ideas, and then I just wanted to be done with them. This is a common theme in my stuff, unfortunately. It was exacerbated by mold errors that were more annoying than I thought they'd be, and frustration with metallic paints on tiny, fiddly bits. Patience, I lack it. Mad props to my photographer, who made them look better than they do in person! (WIP) 02823 Rasia, w/Spiked Chain 02811 Dain Deepaxe
LTPK5: Rasia (02811) and Dain (02823)
Emli posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingFor my next trick, I will finally finish off my last LTPK: #5 Armor. In my last LTPK adventures, I decided not to work on the models concurrently. This time, I'll do them both at the same time again! Step -1: Review the instructions. Oooh, I know what all of these things mean now! I'm not planning to completely stick with the included colors, primarily because we now have entirely too many shades of ... everything. The metal bits that are the purpose of the kit will follow the instructions, for sure. For Dain, his cloth will definitely not be blue (not decided on what color yet - Edit: hmm, greens sound good), and I think his hair will go more to the orange-yellow. For Rasia, she looks like she needs black hair, and I'm not sure yet if I'll do her skirty bits as metal (silver or silver-blue like her armor) or leather. Both of them will have their leathers and accessories done up with whatever feels like a good idea (or happens to be on the palette) at the time. Step 0: It's all about the bases. (Sorry, I failed my catchy music save) Waaaaay back when I started doing the metal LTPKs, I primered all the minis involved, then superglued them to 1" tiles. Ah, well, it doesn't count as shame if its only primer and glue, right? This may not have been the best of ideas in this case, as I also failed to remove Dain's shield before I glued him down. In an attempt to salvage my errors, I removed the shield sprue bit, and glued down some mixed size sand to hide the nub. I also gave Rasia the same treatment, since I already know that this simple sand treatment works with the tiles. Step 1: Paint To be continued... No pictures yet, because everyone knows what primer and unpainted sand looks like. P.S. I did find the old open thread, but its super old and I didn't want to necro it.
[OPEN/GROUP] WIP L2PK5
CashWiley posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingNo WIP thread for Kit 5 or did I miss it? Prepped both minis tonight; primed and mounted Dain. He's my favorite mini from the Kits thus far. We'll see how I feel once I get into the increased amount of fiddly bits. As has been my self-imposed restriction thus far, I'll be painting as close to the instructions as I can manage.
pocketcthulhu posted a topic in Show Off: Paintinglooked around and couldn't find a l2pk5 in show off so I started one, feel free to post your mini's guys. looks like some of her hair came off, will touch it up before I seal it.
