As I see them, Merle on the left Rick in the middle Both from season 1 and I ran across this female styled ash from army of darkness complete with sawed off shotgun and metal gauntlet. (which holds a special spot in my dark heart as my daughter was named after ash from the evil dead movies. no really it was the S/o's idea)

test pic with the new phone and a little bit of painting after work.

 

I drug a little steel over the chainsaw to add in the chips in the paint they get from heavy/rough use, the Merle mini is coming along nicely.

haven't had much inspiration lately and have been spending a lot of my free time at the gun range or helping my sister get her house ready to sell Until My tengu mini had a accident and lost a part this week.

the book popped loose at game this week and I used that as an excuse to repaint my first mini and see if i couldn't do a better job on the 4th attempt.

So both arms and the tail have been pinned, the book was left out due to the hand being small enough I didn't want to risk pinning it even with the thin drill i'm using.

for the armor I went pure black with two steps of purple highlighting on the raised sections.
the skin was ultra marine shadow with a heavy dry brushing of ashen blue, the log started as a black base then dry brushed with ruddy leather then oiled leather and finally a two step green dry brush for moss/mold and so on.

 

I forgot to highlight the bracer on the right arm before I used the brush on sealer.... anyway all that's left is the final coat of dull coat once it stops raining.

 

Side note: the sword was painted "green" as the character picked up the corrosive weapon enchant that does an extra 1d6 on a hit, so he hits for 1d10+5 1d6. I went with a darker theme for the armor as he's gotten very sneaky over the past few levels.

started on the Colossal Skeleton.

 

#1 Make sure you have good lighting when painting this as the graveyard bone paint is slightly difficult to see where you have painted on bones in normal light, I found myself having to redo sections that I missed.

pay special attention to the spine and inbetween the shoulder blades as these areas were especially bad about it.

shadows and highlights.

I went much heavier on the right side of the skull as there's no direct light on this side with the way he leans.

Just a demo I haven't decided if I am going to leave him Un glued/pinned for transport yet.

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      Hi Everyone,

      This is my first time sharing my miniatures step by step, and excited to do so. Hopefully I can learn some things and everyone else who views the thread will learn a bit too.
      I have been looking forward to the Starcadia board game and especially painting the minis that come with it. So first up is the Weeble alien monster. I picked it for 2 reasons, 1 because it was a simple model and I wanted to try my hand at the big eye. There are 4 total Weeble models and it took about 4-5 hours to get to the point in the last photo. I decided to mimic the illustration that came on the Weeble card in the game, so I am using a similar color scheme.

      First step was prepping the model, and removing the mold lines. 2 of the 4 models had 2 bad areas on their left fin that left gaps and a rough spot. To fix it, I tried a new method, I put a little varnish on each area. If you haven't tried it, I definitely recommend it for small gaps or trouble areas that need filled or smoothed. I put a small dab on, let it dry and done, no need to pull out the putty.

      2nd step was priming. I don't like the spray can so I use gesso. It might take a little longer, but no noxious fumes and extra space needed, just brush it on and let it dry. I just spread it thin and quick most of the time, hence the streaking in the picture. The streaking never shows on a finished mini from what I have experienced.

      3 is where the fun began for me, choosing the colors and beginning to paint. My most recent elven minis, I started experimenting with different ways to do base coating and time around I am trying a colored base that is different that the final paint layer. I'm trying this out to see if I can reduce a step in my process and still get results I like. After examining the illustration, I settled on a blue-green for the body of the Weeble, and yellow for the eye. I plan on keeping with the warm yellow highlight in the front and the cold blue / purple shadow in the back. Once I decided that, I chose my basing colors, of a dark yellow brown for the front and dark blue purple for the back.

      4 with the base shadows on the model, I started working from dark to light. I mixed up a glaze of a medium green and medium purple blue. I gradually worked up the colors with multiple layers making sure to blend the colors together where the transition occurred between them. I left the eye alone, because the dark yellow brown was perfect for the yellow eye.

      5 once I was happy with the dark colors, I moved on to my mid-tones. I mixed up glazes of yellow green for the warm light and a blue green for the cold light. I took my time on this step again applying the glazes in layers to build up the color. I decided to try reflected / bounce lighting on the model, so I applied the blue green more on top of the model and the yellow green more on the bottom. I imagine the lighting being blue white (like a daylight bulb) which results a warmer reflected light in the areas not directly hit by the blue light.

      6 after a while I moved on to the eye. I continued with painting dark to light, so I chose an orange brown for the light area and the same yellow brown and dark blue purple for the shadowed area. Again I gradually applied the glazes and blended them together.

      Overall I am pleased with the direction it is going, and it is still far from done. I having gotten to the brightest highlights or even attempted the mouth yet. After that will be the finishing touches, the green slime, and scaly lumps. In the illustration the lumps are black but I don't think black will look good, any suggestions? I was also thinking of doing a slime trail, or more drool I've not done something like that before does anyone have any suggestions in the direction? Or should I not do a slime trail or more drool?
