Aku-chan paints... The Student of Viscera

Recommended Posts

This is the first of my Iron Zombies from Malifauxs University of Transmortis set:-

If I'm going to start using the Show-off thread again, I'm going to have to get better at taking pictures!

 

You can find him here in my WIP thread (although there's not much to see, kept forgetting to update my progress on him)

 

Pretty pleased with how he turned out even if I couldn't do the job I wanted on his hose-pipes (they're harder to paint than they look), and I'm getting better with making bases out of greenstuff, although I can still only make bricks and things at the moment.

 

Any comments and criticisms are most welcome.

Gross. Like it! The pipes look like they'd be easy to get an OK drybrushing job done on, and a nightmare to try to step up from there at all. I think you've put a nice gleam on them, and the skin tone is nice, it's a very obvious, warm "skin tone", and I think that works well here. What did you shade with? It's a bit hard to tell, but if you were going for a bit of a bruised look, it worked :)

That is one disturbing mini. I can't say I like the subject matter (more ponies and chirping birds for me!), but I like your painting of it. The skin looks nice, and great rust.  :;):

Thanks for the comments!

His skin is shaded with Vallejo Red Wash, despite my best efforts I still can't paint skin without relying on washes :down:

 

cool!  I like the rusted look of the pipes!

 

The rust is patches of sand painted orange and brown, my brain came up with the idea when I was asleep, I'm pretty sure it stole it from somewhere else.

He is thoroughly dreadful... which is a good thing in this case! I think his hose pipes look great, and I love how the "straw" pipes came out. Great job!

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?

      Painted this lovely lady during a local mini-con and painting event early this year (pre-covid).  I tried for different colors of skin on her various parts, and a slinky satin fabric for her dress. 

       
      She is checking out a new crypt I did as part of the "craft paint" challenge this spring.

      Greetings!
       
      Vietnam Zombie with gun from Citadel Miniatures of old!
       
      This was a limited release which was linked with both the Chainsaw Warrior board game & 40K Chaos.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      I received a request for more modern female minis who weren't just pulp, so I pulled these. Did one before I realized I was correct in hating assembly. I'm not sure how reasonable it is to expect people to glue pieces so small I could fit at least 10 on my pinkie fingernail. A lot of cuts that really didnt seem very necessary.
       
      No cleanup yet,  most of the bits were too small to clean up before gluing.

      I mostly modelled this off Michael Proctor's paint job, and used it as an exercise in learning to push contrast and glaze unlike colours. The photos make the colours seem to little more vibrant than they are in real life. Overall very pleased with the result!
