Dark Mariner Biomancer - Antimatter Games

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

 

Trying my hand at a WIP thread again, I know my last couple of them died a terrible death, but I'm hoping that by concentrating on a single figure, I won't stress out over my painting not being good enough and end up with a pile of half-done stuff again.

 

If this works, then whenever I start on a figure I think deserves a bit more effort and/or is really cool looking, I'll memorialise the project in a thread.

 

Our first test subject is this guy, The Biomancer -

Yep, he's a freaky pile of little details. At this stage I'd primed and brown washed him to better see what was what.

I had a little bit of time left at the end of today's painting session, so I made a start on the basecoat -

I'm liking the blue tentacles, but I think the purple on his pet octopus is a bit too dark, might try something pinker.

I like his purple octopus, but you need some more colour on him to see the difference, with a bit of highlighting it'll be cool, especially if you put some neon circles on it like a blue ring octopus or something.

I plan to attempt some freehand on the Octopus, but I'm still not sold on the dark purple though.

 

More basecoating -

I keep finding new bits to paint, or bits I forgot to paint, or bits I did paint but wrongly because I thought they were something else.

Just need to work out what colour I want to certain areas to be (like his glowy crystal belt and the shell on the staff) and I'll be able to finish this stage.

      I recently finished Anirion! It was time to add layering to my toolbox of techniques and he seems to be the go-to model for learning.
       
      Since by I now have (just) over 10 minis under my belt, I'm obviously an expert  so I felt confident enough to go with my own colors rather than the ones in the instructions (from Layer-Up kit). Still, even with my "vast experience", I've only painted beasts and monsters so far -- no fancy clothing on any of them -- so I was a bit nervous about messing up my first hero, but you gotta start somewhere. 
       
      I think he turned out great, but it went nothing like the videos one might find... And by that I mean it took me several painting sessions over a few weeks to finish him.

      I fell back to lurking of the forums again.  So starting this year I decided to get back to painting and posting.  Most of what I've done lately has been with gaming in mind.  I wanted to try out Frostgrave Perilous Dark Solo campaign, so I decided to dual task my painting.  I also wanted to play with a full group of painted figures for Zombicide Black Plague.  Since I have already finished up all the zombies and Necromancer for the core game.  Baldric looked like and excellent candidate for my Wizard.  (well him or my 2 Necro's I've already finished, Shh....).  I decided to try to keep as close to the box art as I could.  
       
      Here is my Baldric.

      Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
