So I’ve been burning through resin for the past few weeks. Been focusing on busts as my collection of unpainted minis is... impressive. I should be painting those, but... Other than my airbrush exploding on me (paint bubbling up through the trigger), this guy hasn’t taken much time yet.
Got this from Fotis Mint on Patreon along with a bunch of other ones.
Printed with a mix of regular clear Elegoo resin mixed with clear red ABS-like Elegoo, about 70/30.
Primed with Vallejo black primer then base coated with Reaper Coal Black (my new favourite black!!) with a drop of Minitaire Green ghost tint to help enhance the green hue.
he then got a bib and I hit his face with Reaper Mist Green mixed with some white with a lighter (much more white than Most Green) highlight.
i then glossed up the face with some varnish.
His face then got some washes. Old GW Ogryn Flesh thinned down all over, Vallejo Model Wash Dark Green on the skin and Minitaire Fresh Blood Ghost Tint on the lips and teeth.
The crown then got a base coat of Reaper Scorched Metal.
Apparently I didn’t take shots of it, but I then mat coated it and cleaned up the black around the face.
Tonight I’ll bring the skin back to an almost pure white, leaving the washes in the cracks and I’ll get his mouth done.
The crown is a more silver colour in the comics but I’m planning on sponging lighter metallics on to give it a less pristine look. The leather will be relatively plain as I want the face to stand out, but it will get some highlights and buckles picked out.
Thanks for looking.
Hi again, fine folks!
So just finished this one last night, last part of course the shield, which took me a while to figure out, but who doesn't need a good squirrel shield? Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
so here is a figure I just finished up yesterday and got her on a base.
Not so sure where she is from, but am almost sure she's a Ral Partha Import from the eighties, but I could never seem to find any image of her in any old catalogue.
Also no idea who the sculptor is, so if anybody knows, please give me a hand and let me know!
Not too happy with the sword, didn't build up enough to white I think and still a little too blue, but in the end I guess I'm not going back, on to the next new miniature to paint. If I ended up being too persnickety, I'd never get anything thing finished, and I have a pending pile of thousands to still work on....
another old classic from Julie Guthrie, part of a set she put out for Ral Partha in the eighties, Female Adventurers, which I imagine was their answer to the Grenadier boxed set that was also full of delightful adventuring ladies.
This figure is a little nostalgic, because she's actually lead, back from the eighties, not version cast later in Rallidium.
And as always, wasn't sure on a color for her clothing. I had the hair and skin pretty much figured out, but once I got to that point, it took a day or two to actually commit.
Anyhow, hope you enjoy, a great figure from the early sculpting days of Julie Guthrie!
