Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands. This will take a while, but I will start again. A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies. I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it. Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so) Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army. Enjoy!
Bones V - War Mammoth
TheOldGuard posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingGreetings! Here is my War Mammoth from Bones V. This took me what seems like an eternity to complete (I think I started it in winter 2021...). Being a big beasty, I had endless problems with paint rubbing off because I had to handle him a lot (and also, I opted not to prime him...🤦♂️) so I was forever doing retouches. I also should have probably painted him in sub-assemblies. Anyway, here he is, ready to stomp, crash & paaaarp! Thanks for looking!
Warchief Mumlak (44102)
strawhat posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI'm supposed to be painting HeroQuest Goblins. Which naturally means I'm painting anything else (Mystic Circle, Thing in the Well, Mumlak, and Demonic Lasher). But at least I'm painting! First up was a bit of repair. Mumlak's adze was broken when it arrived, but a quick pin later and he's almost as good as new! I should have run the knife along the tusks while I was at it. But I didn't. Night One: I wasn't sure where I was going with this guy, I was originally going to go with a dark brown for the bare flesh. But that just felt like it would be way too much brown for my taste. I eventually defaulted to the Neutral Greys triad starting at "Cloudy Grey" instead of "Stormy". I knew I'd be using the Stone Greys on the adze, so didn't want to duplicate colors. The fur got a base coat of Pure Black and a dry brush of Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, Leather Brown, and Tanned Leather. The tusks are, rather unsurprisingly, the Ivory Bone triad. The skull topper on the jug and the femur are Bone Colors, the bird skulls will be the Neutral Bone triad. Night Two: Drybrushing, so much drybrushing. Rainy Grey on top of the Cloudy Grey. Misty Grey on top of that. The finger and toe nails are solidly applied Misty Grey. The tusks have gotten the rest of the Ivory Triad. The adze got its Shadowed Stone and Stone Grey drybrushing. The bird beaks are the Golden Skin triad. I don't know if the beaks should be more yellow than the rest of the skull, but that's the way I'm doing it. The jug is getting the "Yellow Ochre" treatment. I think I'm going to use the Terran Khaki triad on the shells on the jug, although it looks halfway decent with just the liner/wash mix. I still need to figure out the cordage, earrings, and "washers" on the cordage down by the jug. And there might be a surprise or two as well. Thanks for dropping by!
Bones Pygmy Mammoth 44111, with toddler
lexomatic posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingMy 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of craft paint before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain. I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey. We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
