65097 D'Kuhl Bathalian

Recommended Posts

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.

Get some P3 Beaten Purple! It is warm and rich and amazing.

      Some people might call it Minivember, though technically I had 23 days of vacation and just wanted to paint a mini every day. Some were finishing older minis, some entirely new, some were the size of a nailclipping. I present, my Minivember.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. 
      Dominant paints used:
      Punk rock pink 09286
      Marid blue 89526
      Clear magenta 09098
      Regal purple 09238
      Clear purple 09099
      Nightmare black 09280
      Fair skin 09047
      Dark elf skin 09164
      Pure black 09037
      Pure white 09039
      Let me know what you think!
