I haven't done one of these in a while...

 

Started up a new mini to keep me busy.

 

I haven't done any bathalians, aside from Professor Kraken, so I thought I'd give D'Kuhl a try.

Haven't done much so far. Just primed, then basecoated his robes in red and purple, and put on some heavy shading. I'll be painting over the majority of the shading as I go along, so only the deepest parts will show. Probably going to go with a nice yellow or orange for the trimming on his robe. I'm planning olive green for his skin, and then I'm going to try the Vallejo fluorescent green and yellow to give him some distinctive markings. Hopefully it comes out looking all right. If not, I'll just paint over it.

I really dig this figure, although I come out in a cold sweat at the mere thought of attempting all the detail work on it >.>

I just painted all the detail as one piece on the Bones version. On the undead version I should go back and detail it all out.

I'm not dead! Just been a bit busy. Finally finished up the basecoating.

Edging is done in Coat D'Arms Festering Brown. Skin is Reaper Jungle Moss, with some light touches from Vallejo Fluorescent Green. I'll put on more as I go along, and some Fluorescent Yellow as well, to give him some patterns. Might add a little blue in there. The staff is Reaper Blackened Brown, with the gem Fluorescent Green again. A few CDA Barbarian Leather touches as well.

I think I may start over on the purple. I'm not a huge fan of this particular shade (Citadel Genestealer purple, I believe), and it's hard to paint over the dark bits I added. I'll probably go over it again with a richer purple, and maybe use it for highlights.

Pretty much done at this point, or as done as I'm going to be before I get back. Not gonna base him here.

Added a little bit of white to the eyes. Decided not to get too fancy with it. Used some Fuegan Orange shade from Citadel to bring out the details on the edging of his robes.

The back of the robes... Not my best work. I found it a pain getting the genestealer purple to blend with the Reaper Imperial purple. Ended up going back over a lot of it with the original shade, just to get something that wouldn't look entirely like it was painted by a blind special-needs chimp.

Had some fun with the gem. To add the darker bits near the top, I mixed Reaper Jungle Moss with the Vallejo fluorescent green. Worked out pretty well, at least for tabletop.

The other side of the gem.

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for.
       

       

       
       

      Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some were just one coat, like Reikland Fleshshade for the edges of shell and claws. Also uded Army Painter green ink and Nuln Oil (for mix with green for darkest part on top of shell) for shell/legs/claws, Reaper Sepia wash for in-between colors and the underside. Only paint I used was bit of black at tips of claws, and Tropical blue watered down to thickish wash for blue on claws/legs.

      Just one more for now.  I recently received a kickstarter which had decal pages for books and scrips.  They were primarily for warhammer but the author made some changes during the kickstarter to make them more system neutral.  I got them and then went looking for a mini to try them on.  I found Lor Gorna first and this was the result.  I liked the mini and i also liked the color i got on his robes and cloak!
       
      And of course his purpose, the book, came out pretty well too!

      Galladoria Games’ floating crystals which will soon make their way into my Dnd game and a nice cozy fireplace and versatile fire from Reaper.
