L2PK1 - Plague Rat (Open Thread)

Recommended Posts

my attempt at the rat, I didn't notice the flashing on the spine until I was mostly finished :blink:

and I washed the #$@% out of the stones but i think due to my thin primer they stayed a little too shiny (part of it's the light I was under)

Get thee to the light box thread! No excuses for bad photos. I spent about ten bucks on the box and my camera is a 2005 point & shoot.

 

Yeah, could be the thin primer. I went with the included brush-on primer just to try it out, but only used a single coat.

Eww! Gross! (And therefore well done!)

My fiancee loved it....but she has an odd fetish for the plague. Worrisome, really.

 

edit: and I see now I forgot to go back and drybrush the grass. Woops!

I used the included primer and I was having to put it on REALLY thick to get any kind of coverage as it was Very watery out of the bottle, and following the instructions exactly lead to a couple of frustrating hours when i was just pushing around white tinted water on the rat.

 

also I concur Photos are the next thing I need to improve on.

You need to REALLY shake the primer. Wren suggested storing it on its side!

Yes, Reaper brush-on needs to be shaken extra well. If you do that, it works fine. That's really the only kind of primer I use anymore.

      A little speedpaint job before breakfast today; after playing Burrows and Badgers at Christmas, my brother and I agreed that we’ll run some at  Gencon this summer. So, I need to work up another couple of war bands.

      This is the fun Bobby Jackson sculpt 02867: Matthias the Twisted, concept art by Talin. He(?)'s a lassic rat-lovin' nosferatu type vampire with an awesome wardrobe and a great pose.

       

       
        
       

       
      He has a lot of great details, including three tiny rats! (They are 28mm scale. They are really tiny.)

      I've been wanting to paint these rat swarms since I got my Bones I shipment.
      However, the base was cut into this jagged shape, so I always delayed painting them as I waited on basing them.
      Finally, I decided to base some with a good heapin' helpin' of sand.  The other two got green stuff treatment to try to blend the base that way.
      One was wood planks, and the other was flagstones.
       
      I tried to emphasize fur/hair in the painting.
      I totally "phoned it in" on the tails, noses and claws.
      I really didn't want to over-spend time on these guys.
      Sorry, I realize I didn't give you a good shot of the skull they are swarming over.

      I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
      I tried to give them fur texture.  The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
      The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
      I spent WAY too much time painting these...
      Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter.  They’re rats.  A lot of them.
