Uruk-Hai with battle staff...(WIP)


Recommended Posts



FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)


TITLE...Uruk-Hai with battle staff!...I removed the axe and replaced it with an orc battle staff from my parts box...The figure has the first body color base coat which is a mixture of (black/espresso/hauser dark green)...as shown in Photos # 1 & # 2.


NOTE...This figure will be my 3rd contest entry in (Painting Excuses Jan-Feb 2014 Single Entry Thread)


ADDITIONAL PHOTOS...Are a reply to a PM I received from a member who was interested and asked about the paints, brushes, glues, etc. that I used in my work on figure, vignettes and dioramas...Believe it or not; I am a miser and hate spending money on high priced paints, brushes, etc...so I work with what is the least expensive and that works for me and what I want to accomplish.


PHOTO # 3...Shows the (6) flesh tone colors that I use on my human figures (usually mix 2 or 3 to get the tone that I want)...you can also see the (2) colors that I use for the shadings on the flesh skin...All are acrylic paints.


PHOTO # 4...Shows (26) of my acrylic paints (have 130 varied shades)...also show (8) of my artists inks (have 40 varied shades).


PHOTO # 5...Shows my basic items I use...white glue, hot stuff, brush cleaner, metallic creams and the gold paint I received from my Christmas Sophie.


PHOTO # 6...Shows my assortment of brushes (none of which cost me over $ 5.00)...each cut down and shaped to how I need it for the specific job it does. If you look carefully...you will see that I also use cosmetic brushes from female cosmetic sets.


PHOTO # 7...Shows my very simple paint pallet...a piece of hard board with aluminum foil...as well as my water bowl for my acrylic paints.


PHOTO # 8...Shows my chalks...that I use on most of my wood (real wood) work...also for rust, dust, texture, etc.


So you see that I do what I do with the most simple items...and to answer your last question...NO, I do not use an airbrush (do not have one, have never had one and have never used one).

      Time for the next in line for Bones I.
      Aina, Female Valkyrie.  I will paint the metal version concurrently.  I already pinned the weapon hand on the metal version, and pinned the arm for the shield.  I’ll apply the shield later.  The Bones version still has a ton of detail, so I suspect these will take a while.  Planning Red/Gold for metal version (her shield is a little Romanesque), and Blue/White for the Bones version.

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.


      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 

      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”

      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!
