Stone Golems :: Marvel Team Up :: Interactive WIP


Recommended Posts

Been staring at the Bones Stone Golems, 77171, and wondering what to do with them.

 

Ran ideas around and round ... starting with the Jade Golem from vulture ... pulled some greens to consider as well as other alternate colors for golems.

 

Onyx, Jade, Rudy, Topaz ... gem stones?

 

Hmmm.

 

Rock. Rock facets. So I start looking about the Interwebs for how to paint the worn rock edging. I pull up stone golem images and I run across:

 

Ben Grimm, The Thing.

 

And I recall how my group refers to miniatures. We always compare them to various media figures, so why not start there.

 

I present to you, Three Marvel Golems:

  • The Thing
  • The Hulk
  • TBD

The last one ... I'm looking for a solid-colored, "massive" Marvel character. Colossus, perhaps? Or can I just represent Captain America? Or go with "strength" and make a "Thor" sans cape?

 

Throw down your thoughts. I plan to start with The Thing. Suggestions on techniques to get the best version of Thing's orange rock feel are welcome.

 

Thanks, T

colossus from X-men would be mu suggestion.

 

For Ben, I would begin with oiled leather mixed with a bit of yellow and shade up and down from there. In the comics, and the movies he doesn't seem to have a very textured appearance, so smooth transitions and colour would probably work

Here's the start of

TheThing!

I did get his upper half done as well as his hands. Sadly, my phone ran out of juice.

 

Off to bed. More tomorrow.

I put "evil Hulk" in a search engine. Got this: http://marvel.com/universe/Red_Hulk

 

So there you go: Orange, Green, Red.

Red Hulk was initially considered and is an obvious color choice.

 

Orka

http://marvel.wikia.com/Orka_(Earth-616)

 

Juggernaut

Thanos

Grey Gargoyle

 

I also considered Juggernaut (Brown), Thanos (Slate Gray to Blue) and Grey Gargoyle (Light Gray)

 

You could go "obscure DC characters" and do Strata >.>

 

Wow, that's about as obscure as it gets.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was really hoping to stick to Heroes so Colossus is currently ahead.

 

I know he's not HUGE like the aforementioned but perhaps Captain America? He's mostly Blue and I could paint the accessories on the golem red and white.

 

Keep the suggestions coming.

 

Here's a couple of pics of where I ended last night:

Red Hulk is kind of a hero now, in Thunderbolts with Elektra, Deadpool, Spiderman and Punisher.

I've recently gotten back into reading comics, the Marvel Now stuff has some really nice books going.

 

Edit - Ben is looking awesome! I love super hero paint jobs on non-super hero minis ever since the RPG challenge.

 

Another edit - given the angularity, I'm not sure it would work for Cap, though the iconic color scheme would sell it well. I bet one of the more angular marks of Iron Man suits would look cool.

Wow, I really need to catch up on my Marvel lore ... um ... Spidey has a machine gun!

 

I knew about the recent title change (Superior Spider-man) from the story arc about Octavius and Parker.

 

Amusingly, I just watched the Ultimate Spider-man on Disney where Deadpool appears last week. Show amuses me and my son endlessly. *Monkey Squeak!*

 

Red Hulk, Iron Man, Juggernaut = rust red golem for the win!

 

Anyone want to send me a fourth? Then I'll do a Colossus/Thanos/Grey Gargoyle - gray golem. We'll prolly call him Colossus but I'll rep the rest as well. :blues:

Thunderbolts spidey is pretty cool...but the Superior Spiderman is really, really good (spoiler: Doc Ock is spider man). My favorite books right now are probably Hawkeye, Deadpool, Superior Spiderman and Thor (all Marvel Now versions).

I used to subscribe to all of the Spider-man titles. Got to be a bit expensive.

 

They lost me during the Parker Clone storyline.

 

I am a Norse mythology buff so Thor was always a favorite. I hear Deadpool is hilarious but have never read one.

 

And then there was the Hulk. Again too many story lines to catch up on but always enjoy a random Hulk comic.

      Presenting the Sewer Golem (and his fishing buddy Cuttleberry) a monster from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Took a surprisingly long time to paint considering it's all washes and drybrushing, but I had fun, that's the main thing.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Trying something a little different this time.  I've got a friend who loves JRR Tolkein and I thought he'd really appreciate a little diorama.  Since I have to ship this, I need it small and durable.  
       
      Now, I get it that Bilbo's sword Sting glows bright when Goblins are near, but let's just say for this story it's glowing because danger is close.  I have him in the stone henge area with a Wraith King coming around the bend.  Let's just say this is about to get real...
       
      Starting this on some foam board.  I was going to use some chip board, but didn't want the glue and stuff I'd be using for the base to get soaked in and bend.  
       
      Using the extruded foam core for the stones.  Carving them down was pretty fun.  I'm thinking I might add some runes or something into them.  I haven't primed them yet, so I still have time.  
       
      The ground terrain is kind of fun - I used spackle, glue, sand, and some burnt umber paint.  I'll do some grass and floral additions to it. You can see on one of the pillars that I used a different mix to surround the stone.  That was the filler without the paint added.  
       
      For the circles, I'll be leaving those open to put the minis into and can be taken out on their own.  I'll be basing them to match the surrounding area, but Iike the idea of taking them out of the diorama when wanted.
       
      Open for any and all suggestions here.  We're still far from done.

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 60142 Golden Guardian I painted for the Pathfinder painting contest. This model was sculpted by Tim Prow. It was the perfect miniature to practice my nmm.

      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.
