Thanks!  I was thinking about putting a face tattoo on him.  I did some online searches for inspiration but so far I came up short.  I remember there was a movie with bald man with really cool tattoos a while back but for the life of me I can find it.

None of the Maori facial tattoos did anything for you huh?  You wouldn't want to cover the entire face obviously but taking a part of one could be cool.

 

Something like this maybe...

...more dwarven of course...whatever that means.

 

I will keep watching this though as I am interested in that bust.

 

I considered purchasing one but it is a little pricey.

It's looking really good!  Are you still working under the microscope or is the bust big enough fo you use the Mk 1 eyeball?

 

What kind of movie was it with the tatooed face?  Fantasy, action or so forth.  Might be able to come up with something.

 

No micro needed for this one.  All of it is eyeball.  I will go micro for the eyes and I want this to be spot on when its done.

 

As for the movie it was either a viking or maybe even a moby dick, Pirates of the Caribbean. I am almost positive that the character was bald.  So hopefully that narrows it down.

Thanks for this.  I will check out the Maori facial tattoos as well.  

 

I will be working most likely on it this weekend and post some more on Sunday.

Was the movie Braveheart?  Th crazy Irishman (double descriptor?) had tattoos around his eyes.

 

 

Nope.  It wasn't that one.  I am pretty sure that the guy was bald.  I almost want to say it was in one of the D-n-D movies.

You can google mad irishman and a few pictures of him will turn up. Lots of dark brown hair. Narrow diagonal stripes of blue (woad?) across his face.

      Hi, folks. First-time picture-poster, over on these forums. I hope I'm "doing things correctly" or close to it? Let me know, if I'm not.

      This is a resin bust by Boxing Dog Model Kits. It's of the band mascot, "Eddie," associated with the musical group, "Iron Maiden". I believe this sculpt was based on the album art for a musical single called "Aces High"; if memory serves, anyway.

      I'm assuming the bust kit is likely no longer on the market? I say that because I believe it was a pretty limited run to begin with, and I know this build-up / paint-up that I did is from about 2014. That's when the "Horror and Monster Modeller" special issue of "Sci-Fi & Fantasy Modeller" came out. This model was featured in an article I wrote, for that publication. (See pages 113 through 121 in that issue.)

      The main thing the article talked about was the physical modifications I had made to the solid resin parts, so that I could put some acrylic rods inside the head, with the rounded-off ends of those rods serving as "eyes" that I could make "glow" by placing some small, flashlight-style light bulbs (not LEDs) in two tunnels than ran under those rods. The actual electrical system is shown here: it's fairly simple, by electronics standards. The pictures here, with the notes I included, give a decent idea of what I did to get the eyes actually lit up, and "glowing". Part of the reason I was going with "real light bulbs," instead of LEDs, was to be able to turn them up or down in intensity. Also, the coloring was going to look like the LEDs of that time period, if I had installed those. The "yellow glow" from "real" light bulbs seemed much preferable.

      As for the paint job ... some parts I'm reasonably happy enough with -- at least, given where my skills are or where, back then -- and some  areas on this model ended up being "basecoat only; then I had to stop" due to the restrictions of time. (I had this project, plus three other projects, that did appear in that same special issue; plus one that didn't get completed in time: so unfortunately none of the articles I was working on, for that particular issue, really got the time or care I would have wanted each of them to have, in an ideal world). I bit off a bit more than I could chew, methinks, in hindsight? Sometimes, real life gets in the way, too; as it did with this project, and the other three or four. But I was pretty stoked about having stuff in that first-ever special issue. As is often the case with deadline models of any kind, a person just has to do what they can, and prioritize what's possible and what's not, within the time they have available. But with four other models being worked on, and all at roughly the same time ... yeah, no, that special issue was not my finest moment. Still fun to work on, though: even if I feel I have more reasons to be proud of the eleven other articles I'd done with SF&FM, before the "Horror" special issue came out. 

      I keep telling myself that, one day, perhaps, I may re-paint portions of this? Or at least "finish" the "basecoated, only" areas where I simply had to stop where things were, so that I could get the photos and words turned in, for that particular article's deadline. But for now, this is still what the kit looks like, even nearly a decade after that "Aces High" article first came out, in 2014. Even though I was under-whelmed with my own performance, paint-job-wise, on a number of areas on this kit, local fans of that musical group were depressed that I would not give this model to them, or sell it to them, so not everyone was as harsh as I myself was, on whether or not I'd done an acceptable job, on this kit. (I gave them nice, big, hi-res photos, instead. They seemed happy enough with that; and I can still see lit-up Evil Eddie, whenever I want to.)

      EDIT: I should probably add that the article's mentioned Reaper's paint lines; along with things like extenders or drying retarders, and what I believe was originally Jen Haley's mix of that plus flow improver. The paints used on this were a combination of paint brands and types: some of it being Tamiya brand acrylics; some of it being Reaper's paints; some of it being various kinds of metallics. Primer was an automotive gray by Plasti-Kote. To seal the "light tunnels" and prevent light leaks, I had even used some of One-Shot's brand of paints that are made for things like pin-striping work. Some portions of what's seen here (the goggles, in particular) started as a homemade decal or transfer, of a photo of some clouds, that I later painted over in places, with "flak bursts" and a reflected, flaming, shot-down enemy aircraft. The overall paint work is a combination of hand-brushing, in places, plus some airbrush work: mostly for base-coating, but also used occasionally "for effects". There is some evidence of veins running, just under the skin; but it's pretty hard to tell that it's there, once I shrank these images, for uploading.

      Fell in love with this one when I saw him in the VIP bag for reapercon 2016? 
       
      delighted to get it with the Kickstarter. 
      so much fun to paint.   Was going to to just silver and purple- but the counterpoint of a crown golden horns really sold him as an emperor for me.
       
      the xiii is a reference to the dragon empire of 13th age (which was a great RPG) 
       
      would love C&C before submitting him for yearly contest.

      Thought some of you might find this interesting:

      Some of the figures are borderline NSFW so i won't copy any pictures here.
       
      Looks lovely, but even if I wasn't unemployed, these are a bit rich for my blood.  With shipping you're looking at ~$76 for a single bust - ouch...

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.
