Iron Cobra WIP

Recommended Posts

So I found two primed minis I had misplaced, the Iron Cobra Talespinner had sent me along with the wyvern and a clearance monk like mini I had bought at my FLGS. This is going to be a WIP for the cobra =3
 
Question is....should I try out my new rust skills and make a rusty cobra? It's tempting...but he is rather small, i might not be able to get the full effect on him. So shiny might be the way to go. Opinions?  ^_^

Rust is easy, use a stippling brush, and some umber brown paint (I use a raw brown umber), followed by some dark red paint (I use naphthol red artist acrylic), then a light stippling of the brightest orange you have (I use pumpkin orange craft paint). Water the paint very slightly, not too runny, depending on thickness. My paints are pretty high quality so I only need 1 coat but you may need to do 2 of each if you use gw, reaper or especially vallejo. Focus the rust in crevases and around bolts. Best thing about painting rust is you can be messy. Then you can sharpen metal areas where the plates rub together with a shiny bright metal paint.

 

Quoted from somewhere- ''Stippling is a method of painting where you load the brush with paint and then apply it to the model in gentle 'stabbing' motions. This creates a light, dusty, effect on the figure perfect for rust and weathering."

XD Oh i'm good at stippling. I use it quite a bit [used it heavily on my Kaladrax]. My method of painting rust works better on large areas than on small ones like the cobra, so I wasn't sure about painting him rusty, though stippling would actually work. Hadn't thought about it

 

i'm leaning towards shiny with maybe some rusty bits here and there

Rusty Cobra sounds......... dirty.  I like shy knee co-bra

 

Of course Rusty Cobras are dirty, how do you think they got all rusty?  :rock:

      So finally got the courage to post some minis that I have finished over the last few months. Here are some of the Yuan-Ti Nagendra metal minis I have always really liked. I have the archer and halberd still to paint up that I have from my most recent order, but am taking a break from the scaly creatures for a bit. I know I need to work on my highlighting but any other feedback is welcome.

      This is Vilthiss Snake Champion from Mierce's Banelords Range.
      Resin.
      Base is made with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin some skulls and a few of Ristul's Fantasy Market's resin bugs.
       
      After taking the pics I noticed a little too much purple gums on the upper side of the teeth, it's fixed.
       
      He's part of my Lost World Project which you can find here:

      This guy has some belts and buckles, If I didn't know better I would suspect it was a Klocke sculpt..
       
       
      NEW PICS ADDED
       
      Fixed the teeth and added a reflection dot.
      First 5 pics are the new ones.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Here is the snake man warrior I finished a few weeks back.  I was having issues with the yellow belly since the paint was very chalky but I did what I could.  I am happy with the shading and tiny reflection on the gem on his bracer, it was my first time doing that, even though it's basically invisible from 3 feet away.  Let me know what you think!

      Enjoyed painting these but can't say I applied any great magic or too much time to them. They were all really quick to complete, working up from coloured primer with washes then bone or cream or pink for details.
