YouWaShock Painted Minis (updated 1/09 Thief! Archer!)

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Thrym.

 

This is my favorite car from amongst those I put together for KRASH. KRASH was an awesome little game in the vein of Car Wars and Dark Future with that sweet Road Warrior flavor. You put your car together using randomly assorted equipment packs and roared into battle. Last car rolling wins. Fast paced, simple, fun. Then Cell Entertainment shut down. Love their games. Miss 'em. Their models were a little clunky, but charming in a way.

As always, thanks for looking.

Here's a blast from the past. A classic vampire from GW. This paintjob is a couple of years old, but the mini is from days long gone. GW is making some great stuff (and bad) these days, but my favorites will always be the older models.

Here's another Zoat. A fantasy Zoat this time, converted to have a conjured mystic sword of some kind instead of the mace this model usually has. Used this guy as the leader of a homebrewed Zoat warband for Mordheim. A mix of Zoats and Wood Elves hearkening back to 3rd Ed. Warhammer Fantasy lore. It was fun to try but I think I'll leave rules to the rules guys and just stick to playing.

I absolutely love the way you painted that "conjured sword" and how you've got the "mystic" colour spreading back up his arm.

Thank you very much, guys. Appreciate the old school love.

 

Here's one that isn't anywhere near as old but not contemporary, either. A minor conversion of Gwenlaen the Everproud , Kelt Fianna Champion. Snipped her pigtails for a sleeker cut, and swapped her arms out for the arms from the limited ed. Kelt musician. Went for an aged tarnished metal look, possibly enchanted, on the armor, as most of the models I have painted so far for my Kelts have tooled leather armor and I wanted her stand to out. Also went for a faux Damascus pattern on the blade.

 

Confrontation. Pour one out.

Love the car... I used to play Car Wars, and did a lot of conversions of plastic car models using guns from airplane and ship models.

I happened to pick up a couple of HeroClix figures recently, although I don't play at all. There were Batman and Avengers minigame sets available as prizes at the local casino's video arcade (if you win enough tickets you can even get an XBOX, lol), and since they were cheap I said what the heck... I'll eventually end up redoing Catwoman, Captain America and Thor as fantasy minis.

Thank you. Have fun with the Clix. Maybe try the game?

 

This model is a bit more covered, but dressed no more plausibly. A Bride of Lilith from Rezolution. Guard of the Dravani (space vampires. really.) Queen. Some of the Rezolution models were a little silly, lots of platform shoes. Really. But some were pretty sweet. The Brides being some of my favorites. We only played the game once, though. Was such a NPE that we never went back. Could have been the people in the group at the time, but it fell by the wayside and that was that.

Like Slashhamster said, the colors and contrast are very nice. Your GW Vampire and Zoat are especially good.

I like the neon effect on your Guard of the Dravani as well.

      I'm sure many of you can sympathise- we see a cool model in a kickstarter, finally get it delivered and then sit flummoxed whilst trying to figure out exactly how to paint said mini. This Mystic Portal has been sitting on my painting desk since last June and I finally figured out what to do with it.
       
      Imagine that your players have just finished ransacking your meticulously planned dungeon/keep/cavern system. They've breezed through the encounters, possibly due to good dice rolls or possibly that they're a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos. What you need is one final encounter, one last chance for them to shine or to let them spectacularly fail.
       
       There's one last room left and it's securely locked. It'll certainly be magically warded and if I know my players then that's a challenge that they won't be able to pass up. Inside the room is a single portal, made of nondescript stone but with stunning looking gems set into the eyes of it's carved dragons. Surely none of them would be daft enough to trigger an obviously dangerous portal?
       
      You haven't met my players
       
      My plan to paint one side of the portal the naturalistic stone colour and to paint the other side the fully active, just about to summon a multi headed dragon, portal. This means that when they invariably trigger it, all I have to do is spin it around and savour their worried/confused faces Here's hoping that I can actually do it justice.
       
      This is the portal. It's cast in translucent bonesium, which I like because it gives you a choice between taking advantage to it's see through quality or to just paint it like a normal mini. I opted to paint it as normal.
       

       
      There was a slight bit of warping on the base piece, but the old 'boiling/ice water' trick sorted it out in 5 minutes. I'm planning on setting the base on some warning runes, so I used the Greenstuff World Dwarven rolling pin on some foam to see how it would fit onto the pattern.
       

       
      On to the painting! I painted the inactive side of the portal Cloudy Grey 9089 and the active side Pure Black 9037.
       

       

       
      I'm not sure if I'm going to fuzz up this line or leave it as a stark contrast.
       

       
      I added a black/ green wash to dirty up the stone and added a little bit of orange to the stone to give it a little bit of texture
       

       
      The real work begins! I started blocking in the colours for the active side of the portal. Red, purplish black, white, green and blue. It's almost as if I'm trying to match my half finished Ma'al Drakar
       


       
      My coordination went a bit wobbly with the foo dogs(which are awesome, btw!) so that's where I left it for tonight. We've got a storm coming in tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some more work done on it tomorrow. Any comments/criticism/suggestions are, as always, warmly received.

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      This was a fun sculpt - orange octopus definitely inspired by others :)

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.
