77047: Goldar, Male Barbarian

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just continuing my run of muscly men...for some reason.

 

This time I tried to do a lot more, thinner layers than I am accustom too and I think it turned out nicely.

 

I also tried to do a bit of NMM with more effort than the fleeting whimsy I did last time.

 

Certainly something I need more practice at.

Fantastic control, magnificent balance, Great Nmm...

and I am sorry to say.. It doesn't move me.

Its too washed out.  I want fight, I want contrast..I want it to sing to me that it is a barbarian !

I feel I am looking at a brute, that has learned to dance Ballet !

 

Not to be offensive.. great technique.. really.

You have great skill..

Jay

Thanks man, no offense taken.

 

I just went out and bought a new 150w equivalent daylight CFL bulb for my lamp, so I think it may have been a bit to close to him for the picture.

 

Hes a bit more dark and menacing in person.

SO is touching things up in photoshop to make up for poor photography skills cheating around here?

 

For some reason I never think of doing that before I post my photos on here.

 

I lowered the brightness and bumped up the contrast a bit and this seems much closer to what he looks like in person.

You know, in the first set of pics he looked like the Engineers from Prometheus.  I liked that since it was different.  He still looks good with the more accurate photos. The face tattoos really help give him some character and liven up the large extent of "blank" flesh.  I like the sharp progression of shades on the ax. 

 

Tell us about the base.

Much Much Better !

As the master of really garbage photographs (its never a cheat to give us a better photo).

Like the contrasts now, and the colors look much better.

Thanks for sharing a great piece of work !

and That base is stunning !

Most of us use photoshop/GIMP/Other free program to adjust the white balance so it isn't "cheating" especially if you aren't doing something for a contest (some contests have very specific rules).

 

Anyhow, good job on Goldar, one of my favs from the Bones haul.

Oh wow lol, I don't think I have ever gotten a base compliment before. I consider it one of my weak areas. So thank you for that.

 

Super simple too.

 

Standard 25mm round plastic miniature base.

On top of that is a 1/4" thick piece of cork board that I ripped into a "circle"

One of the smaller pieces I ripped off I put on top of that just so it wasn't flat.

Just that day bought my first can of black rustoleum primer from home depot, so I primed it black.

I pretty much only use dollar store craft paints for bases so its drybrushed

Grey, then grey/white 50/50 then white.

Then finally two clumps of dead grass basing material frommmmm Galeforce 9? Thats a thing right?

Yeah I love almost all the "barbarian" bones minis from the KS, all fun to paint.

      I am still not happy with the skin tones I have come up with for my basic Zombicide zombies... Most have been too green. So I wanted to try something more of a pale skin to grey color.. And believe it or not I am out of Bones zombies and that's to experiment on. So I found Goldar who is my proxie zombie. 
      What do you guys think? I am actually happy with this one for two reasons: I painted him I about two hours total and I think this skin tone will work for my standard Zombicide zombies. It is VMC 2 parts basic skin tone to 1 part sky grey. Then a light wash of Army Painter dark tone Ink. Btw... I am going to stick with their ink since it dries in less than an hour, rather than two days for their quick shade dip.
       
      Once I get a Caucasian zombie skin I like, then I will have to work on an African zombie skin tone to add some variety.

      I've been painting on this guy whenever I had leftover paint for the last year or so; it seemed like time to finish him up. 
       
      C&C are welcome, but tips on what to do about his hair would be especially welcome.

      Even a barbarian needs his teddy bear! This was an idea originally tossed around somewhere in the off topic threads ages ago that I'm only now getting around to working on.


       

      Decided on a slightly more subtle positioning of the bear by tucking it around the back.

      Hey all!
       
      It's been a bit since I've been able to paint up anything. I started back to school and between that, the requisite homework accompanying it, and working (as well as trying to make time to see people and sleep somewhere in there) my painting has fallen by the wayside. I've had a little more freetime that I didn't spend doing other things here lately though, and one of the beneficiaries of that was Goldar here.
       
      I (like I'm sure others) envisioned him as a D&D goliath. I considered trying to freehand some tattoos on him, but I was too scared to try it and just left him as-is. Maybe one day I'll make an attempt. Sorry for the less-than-stellar photos here. Did them with my phone under a kitchen light (not the light I paint by -- but close).

      This is Reaper Bones figure Goldar, Male Barbarian, which I painted for fun.
