Sorscha Kratikoff

Recommended Posts

VERY NICELY DONE! I think it's the rosy glow of her cheeks that make the mini for moi...very appropriate flesh tones for a cold climate.

I love that magenta!  What colors did you use?  Always a pleasure to see your work!  Thanks for sharing!

Magenta! That´s the one! I was so close to calling the color purple/pink/red thing...
(I know that if I am serious about the hobbie, I´ll have to know more than 16 colors...)

 

Despise that, I love the Magenta! 
Which miniature is that?

Thanks.

 

She is Sorscha Kratikoff 2010 from Warmachine.  You can get her in plastic in the Khador warmachine starter box (I think she's also in the 2 player box) or you can get her in metal from Privateer Press' online store.

Thanks.  I learned a new trick from Zach Lanier before I painted her up- the cheeks are highlighted in alternating warm and blue tones.  The effect is subtle, but I really like how it turned out.

That's P3 Sanguine highlight, shaded with blue.  I can't remember exactly what I used to highlight it, but I would suspect that it was a bone color (I like to shade with cool and highlight with warm, or vice versa).

Sorscha! Bleah. (says the legion player who is annoyed seeing Sorscha across the table...one of my most frequent opponents).

 

For all my feelings about the gamepiece, this mini is awesome. You should totally do Butcher like this, he'd look pretty epic!

 

Can you give more detail to the warm/cool highlighting process for her skin? I like the effect but I'm not visualising the process very well.

Well, I start out with a medium skin tone (I think it was P3 Midlund flesh on her, but it might have been Ryn flesh because she's so pale).  From there, I first shaded by mixing a red into the base color (probably skorne red) and then shaded again by mixing in a green (I don't remember which I used- it probably wasn't super dark on her, so something like traitor green or maybe even battledress green).

 

I then reclaimed the surface areas in the mid tone, then started highlighting up.  I first did a layer of highlighting that mixed in some Frostbite- a pale blue.  Her upper cheek became very cold looking (which contrasts nicely against the red shadows right next to it).  I then highlighted last by adding in some light ivory (P3 Menoth White highlight, I belive) and doing the very top highlights up to the warm ivory color.

Thanks.

 

I'm working on doing similar compositions with other colors.  Right now I've got a character who's wearing warm green armor and cold green cloth.  I think it's working well, too.

 

Reaper's clear brights help out a lot.

      First real attempt at object source lighting.
       
      Model was zenithal primed and painted using glazes and inks

      This is yet another of my metal trade bin finds! I picked him out because he looked like he was wounded, and I love minis in poses other than at-arms. It turns out that he's clutching a dagger on his chest, and not a wound. Also, I'm spoiled by Reaper's wonderful faces. This one is a little bit flat, though that may be due to being in the bin. Anyway, not my best work, but I painted this in a few hours!

      A fitting adversary for the Benthic Walker and my aquanauts, this burly fishy brute packs a massive steampunky harpoon cannon and a cape made of human leather. (How aquatic species do their leather-tanning, I don't know, but it seems to work for this guy.) 



      He's also adorned with fishhooks, which must be a bold countercultural statement among fishmen. Like a necklace of bullets and syringes for a human, I guess. 

      Big fella, he came with a Large base but could pass for a very burly Medium creature in my opinion.



      This brute is not some lungbreather hybrid from Innsmouth; this is 100% Deep One stuff. 



      Oh yes, also the rotten hands and bones on the gruesome cape. Trophies of the Ones that Got Away, perhaps?

      As seen in my Lunch Sessions WiP thread, here's the finished product of Borka Kegslayer, the stumbling-drunk warlock for Privateer Press' Trollbloods faction. I painted this guy up as part of a trade with @chaosscorpion , so the mini will be on his way across the state in the near future, unless CS sees something terribly terribly off.
       
      Basing is left to Chaosscorpion to better match his army.
       
      The plaid is a specific tartan, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm pleased that this mini pushed me into doing plaid, which I'd never done before.

       
      Borka also comes with a kegbearing Pyg. The kegstamp is, like the debossed pattern on the back of Borka's jacket, the symbol of the Trollbloods faction. I also enjoy the ridiculously drunken whelp sitting on top of the barrel.

       
      Chaosscorpion, let me know if there's anything that needs to change before I put them in the mail!
