  1. Presenting Ironbelly Klegg, a member of the Fortune Hunters faction from the game Deep Wars, and my first ever mini (that I've finished) from Antimatter Games. I'm still quite bad at painting crystals, lenses etc. so he made a pretty terrible choice for my first mini to paint, but I had fun. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings. They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower. Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette. Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I ge
  3. Hi folks, The new Deepstar Kraken model is coming out soon for DeepWars and I painted up this one for display using a lot of inks and liquid acrylics. This model (not really a miniature when this big) was done in different stages. The base painting was done with blue skin and light tentacles. The mantle and top of the tentacles were given two washes of Marine Blue (Ultramarine) liquid acrylics (Dr. Phil Martins brand) mixed with matte medium and water. When the first was dry, the second was applied. The underside of the tentacles was done with a mix of Cerulean Blue ink (Liquitex)
  4. Hello! I've recently started working on a diorama, and a friend of mine urged me to post here. The only thing that is missing from the pictures below is the kelp that will be behind the kraken (on the little pads on the back side of the base). It is some floppy aquarium kelp that I"m currently trying to figure out how to get it to stand up straight. Tips, tricks, C&C are all welcomed. Here is the pre-primed coral wall in varying states of sand coverage. The coral is planned to be very brightly colored. Primed base: You can see the
  5. Hi folks, Here is my painted version of the Sea Hag, Ol’ Ginny Greenteeth for the Nereids of Blood Reef, for DeepWars. It's a pre-production model as the final one is coming out later. She was done with a lot of washes and glazes over a “zenith-primed” base. Most of you already know how this is done, with a base coat of black primer all over, then white primer sprayed from above to simulate how light falls on the model. The skin was started with Phthalo Green ink + black paint + Matte medium. The clothing was started first with an olive hue, made with an Ivy green paint mixed with Burnt
  6. Hi all, Here is one more step by step painting tutorial for the Sea Serpent for DeepWars, Blood Reef. This scaly creature is related to dragons so it has very heavy scales that work well with washes and glazes. Inks are Liquitex Pro inks and the Matte Medium is by Liquitex. Paints are Golden Fluid Acrylics. White and black are standard Americana brand craft paint. The first step was to paint the whole body in a light yellow shade over white primer, leaving only the mouth white. This was left to dry. Next, the body was given a wash of Pthalho Green ink,
  7. Hi all, It has been a while since the last post, but here is a quick, step-by-step painting guide to the Silver Death Fish for DeepWars. This model is suspiciously similar to an ancient Xiphactinus fish, but has slightly different fins, with a few finlets near the tail like a tuna. This model was primed in white and painted using the techniques very similar to the Dire Fish-Lizard from the AMG painting guide, Painting Scaly Beasts. The key was to use washes and glazes to give it the basic colors, then lighten sections with thinned white paint and make edges pop with pure white. The majori
  8. I'm getting excited for some new Deepwars models and I've been rushing to finish as much of my backlog as I can. these Garks (an Abyssal Gark and an Abyssal Gark Mangler) needed a few finishing touches to get them off of the shelf of shame, and once I got back into it they were actually really fun to paint - greens and purples always look nice together. They will be some much needed troop muscle for the small Scaly Horde warband I have. These guys are pretty formidable size-wise, so I rebased them on some larger 40mm bases rather than use the base inserts they came with. I included
  9. This is the Siren Maneater from Antimatter Games (DW2022) in resin. I see her as Ursula from the Little Mermaid after she has stolen Ariel's voice. I just love her pose!
  10. I haven't been posting may of my recently completed projects, a trend I've been meaning to correct. Since my mind is "under the sea" right now, I figured I'd start with this colorful fellow. It is a pretty straightforward paintjob. The very large eyes were fun to paint, and I found that I actually like to paint in yellows.
  11. Hi all, Here is the painted version of the sculpt I did for the Jade Salamander, a 60mm tall brute of the lizardman made in FIMO classic. It is all cast up in resin now for the ShadowSea game and is currently going out to backers of the Rise of the Draconids kickstarter. The painted version was done with many washes and glazes of inks and transparent paints, followed by opaque paints for highlights. The sword was metallics and inks.
  12. Hi all, The next miniatures getting the step-by-step painting guide is Tecchuili, Captain of Atalán. This figure is encased in golden-orange armor, so the initial basecoats were done with Primary Yellow paint (Golden Fluid acrylics) It was kept thin enough to allow the white primer to show through on highlights. The fins, spear blade and crystals on the gun were painted with thin Cerulean Blue ink. The spear shaft and gun were painted with thinned gold paint. One the base coats were dry, the initial midtone step was started. The armor was given a wash of a thick mix of Burnt Sienna I
  13. I started by giving him a base coat of MSP Clockwork Brass, then used various washes and inks I had to give him different colors in random patterns. I had to go back with a light coat of brass to get some of the shine back. I used Tamiya Clears to make the "eyes" really pop out. I also added Metallic Medium (metallic white, basically) to the brass as highlights on some of the edges of the metal. The base is mostly pumice paste, with some Army Painter grass clumps, flock and cork "rocks" to give it some texture. I used more inks and washes to color the pumice, then lightly drybrushed brigh
  14. Continuing my weekend of “paint multi-legged mechs,†I started on the Salvage Mech Construct from DeepWars. I decided I would try to emulate Antimatter’s painting style (without spending too much time on it). I airbrushed him with brass, then started playing with inks and washes. I only have a couple of inks, and they did seem to work better for this purpose. I had to go back over the washes with thinned brass to keep things shiny. He’s pretty close to finished actually. I need to touch up a few spots, maybe incorporate some feedback if I get any (especially appreciated if AntiMat
  15. The Deepwars Cephalid Siren from Antimatter Games is exactly how I imagine the 50 Fathoms witches look. A great sculpt and very fun to paint.
  16. Here is a Nautiloid Chrysalid for DeepWars done in some fast washes, a bit of blending and edge highlights to finish quickly. The shell was two two main colors over a white primer, Burnt Sienna ink (Liquitex) and then when dry, Pthalo Blue ink. The inks on the shell were applied in washes, so covering everything and moderately thick, mixed with Liquitex matter medium and a bit of water to give better flow. The tentacles were Pthalo Blue ink wash, with A Dioxazene Purple wash near the "face". Then the face and thin tentacles got a wash of Magenta ink. Highlights were added with a bit of white m
  17. Here are some painted Dark Mariners done using the basic glaze style of painting using inks and translucent paint, followed by highlights using opaque paint. This style is very effective for anything with scales and surface texture. This was a set of gaming-level figures, so painting them in an efficient way was critical, something that the glaze style really helps with. A couple were already started, but overall, this was a weekend's work, so not too long. They key, as always with the glaze style, is to shadow with contrasting colored inks. In this case, the shell is a burnt Sienna over w
  18. Here is a smattering of gaming minis painted with washes and glazes for DeepWars and ShadowSea. The metallics in the first photo are started in either gold or bronze with a light coating so the white primer shows through in highlight areas. The metals were then washed with blur/green ink to make shadows, and in some, given a glaze of burnt sienna to bring back some bright color. Then they were highlighted with gold+silver, with more highlight used for "cleaner" metal while the more dingy metal had in mainly on the edges. Finally, extra biofouling color was added with Sap green ink. The jellyf
  19. Hi all, Up from the depths comes the Dire Fish-Lizard. I sculpted this a while back and it was good to finally be able to paint it properly. This one was almost entirely done with ink washes and glazes, with edge highlights using opaque paint to finish it up. This one will be going into a painting guide that was part of the latest Kickstarter for ShadowSea/DeepWars (Rise of the Draconids) to show the glaze technique for painting scaly beasts. http://antimatter-games.com/games/draconids-pledge
  20. Hi all, Here is another one I just finished, the Giant Anglerfish. I also sculpted it, but I'm just going to show the painting steps. To simplify things, any inks referred to in the text are Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks, and the matte medium is by Liquitex also. White and Black paint is Americana Brand. So, step one is the ubiquitous zenith priming, with black first, then white at an off angle from above, maybe about 60 degrees up (30 deg from nadir). It takes some practice to get the right amount of coverage and the highlights doing this, but it makes washes and glazes easier to
  21. a Cephalid Biomancer and Deepspawn Reaver for your viewing enjoyment. These are a great couple of Halloween minis: a frankenstein style human-robot-fish monster and its demented creator, a horrific mutated being that is more tentacle than humanoid. One of the nice things about undersea freaks is free license to go hog wild with colors that would seem bizarre on land but are perfectly natural beneath the waves. i definitely did that here; lots of experimentation with blues pinks and purples. even the bright oranges on the base seem right at home on these minis. between that and the won
  22. I've started working on Abyssal Gark, from DeepWars game. I'm trying to replicate the color effect of the drawing in the book, and wanted to share some early pics to get some impressions. I'm not the kind of painter that keeps other areas clean, so I ususally don't share wips, but for this one I would like to get some comments. Does the 'randomly' shaded skin looks silly?
  23. The 2 week long deepwars KS has started. http://www.kickstart...yss-mini-kicker Wonder if the OP can retitle this thread to be Shadowseas\deepwars as there's no real reason to start a new thread.
