Yeah, seriously man. Really outstanding.

 

Sorry I haven't had as much time for hanging out in WIP threads and whatnot, things are...interesting these days...and still no more painting, last two days have seen most of my free time out in the yard!

Thanks Cash, that means a lot as you are another painter I look up to a lot and try to emulate. 

 

Thanks to everyone for their thoughtful posts and wonderful advice, I couldn't have done this piece without you guys and gals. It really helps when people give the critiques and tell me what I'm doing good and what I could do better. He was another piece I experimented on and learned a lot from. I really wanted to put forth something with a really neat skin tone (and I think I accomplished it) as well as work on my cleaner paint job with better shading and highlights. 

 

The next piece I'll probably start tomorrow as I'm kinda in that zone that we all get into after we finish a piece and need to decompress for a bit. The next one is for a friend of mine who has a Magus in our high-level game and we finally found a figure that he liked enough to have me paint up for that character. Funny thing is that we just put that high level campaign on hold because we got a new guy to join our group so I'll be painting up more PC figures for everyone soon. I'm actually just going to use Ulfrik starting him at 3rd level and then jumping him up to the higher level game when we move up there (if he lives that long that is).

Thanks galladril! I felt that this particular piece lent itself to violence and gore, one of those times where you get an idea in your head and have to execute it.

 

 

 

As an aside to everyone else who follows my work, based on feedback I've received here and other places (mostly in the show-off thread for the Barbarian Dude), I'm going to be doing a few things to improve the piece:.

  • Add some snow to the ground as Clever Crow suggested, this will give the impression that the body parts are in deeper areas of snow and has some weight to them.
  • Cut into the body parts to make them more jagged instead of sheared off so cleanly like it was hit with a light saber. Siri suggested this first, but a few others chimed in on this as well.
  • While cutting into the body parts, I'm going to try to make the lower part of the torso hollow, then use some different techniques to add more gore/intestines... should be pretty gross so cover your eyes if you have a sensitive stomach!
  • Add more blood to the blade of the greataxe as well as some tiny amounts of blood splatter on the figure (don't want to do too much to the figure itself as he's been sealed and I'm not repainting him).

Any other suggestions to the base and the golem's body on it that I should work? Feel free to chime in and offer your opinions before I get started tonight (6-ish PM Pacific) please.

Got all that stuff done to him and posted new pics on the show off thread under the original pics.

 

Anyhow we played Pathfinder last night and during the course of play our spell slinger was taken out by 2 goblins while alone before the party meets up for the first time. The GM gives the option to the player to roll up a new PC or play a new gunslinging goblin! The splatter chooses the goblin and last night after the game the GM went to a game store with another of the players and found a goblin gunslinger mini.

 

Now I have a new project to get done before we play again in two weeks! This should be fun.

Do please to share the source of this mini! It could be quite useful for future IKRPG characters, but the only thing I'm coming up with on the Googles is a whip and revolver wielding goblin freebooter from an out of stock CMON "Mercenaries" pack. Not even sure for what game it is intended...

Ah, Malifaux! I should have known...

 

Couple PCs in our current IK game are represented by Malifaux minis. ::D:

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.

      Hail Repearites,
      Since my Bones I Kickstarter package arrived recently and I started to paint them, I decided that now is a good time to sporadically post my progress here, and maybe receive some valuable input.
      These are all meant to be tabletop quality (i.e. better quality than WotC's minis - the old batches).
      I am a newbie painter.
      I don't have a lot of spare time, so I sneak a few minutes here and there where I can.
      Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
       
      First up is a WIP of a paint and take from a local comic convention. We painted three space marines in 45 minutes, using truly horrendous brushes (think of Buglips brushes post Kaladrax), and Citadel paints (one red for base coating, one brown wash for shadowing everything, one pink dry goo for highlighting, and one grey gravelly paint for the base. I wish that I had taken down their names).
      This was a lot of fun, and most of all proved to me that I CAN paint minis quick and dirty and yet get a good enough result for tabletop games.
      The space marines were primed in black when we got them. The first coat was just sloshing red paint over them. The brushes allowed for no subtlety here. Think of painting a Reaper Bones Kobold with a tree trunk and you'll get the idea.

       
      Second coat: weird pink highlights. iPhone camera barely shows them, so you'll have to believe me.
      Third coat: shadow with the black/brown wash/ink - I think it had oil in the name.

       
      Final coat: basing the marines with a grey paint that had little bits of gravel on it - and explained why the brushes looked the way they were.

       
      After that I did some touch ups, but for some reason I can't find a picture of the results. I'll snap one later and attach it to this post.
       
      Next post : Flesh Golem, the oh so famous rats, and an orc and a goblin meet in an adventuring group.
