I should be working on my more time sensitive projects, but I can't resist the siren call of starting another Kingdom Death mini, the Rogue:-

At the moment he's merely been cleaned, assembled and primed. Tomorrow comes the fun of deciding what colours to assign to his many layers of clothing.

 

I've made a start to his base too:-

That fern on the side looks way too much like an ear.

Where are you getting these faces for the bases?

 

Heh. I rhymed.

 

They're made by Scibor. You can get either ready-made face bases, or just the faces.

 

I'm surprised this one hasn't sold as well.. but then, it seems the male miniatures take longer...

 

Yeah, from any other company I think he'd be super popular, but the KD fanbase just doesn't seem too keen on not-monster male minis (which is why I think its silly of Poots to waste resources on developing male pin-ups).

Silly it may seem, those were actually asked for by some of the females in his fanbase. I'm not certain how large a portion "some" refers to, but I am certain that they were asked for in the KS comments, and possibly on the KD blog.

Oh, I know people requested them, I just don't see that translating into many sales.

I'll be happy to be proved wrong though, the concept art for the first one looked interesting.

 

The Rogue now has skin and trousers:-

The skin started as a basecoat of 3:1 Vallejo Dwarf Skin/Ruddy Leather, then it got a wash of Vallejo Flesh shade, then layers of Dwarf Skin and 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Linen White both with a touch of Ruddy Leather, then a final thinned wash of the Flesh shade.

I think I may have left too much basecoat around the hairline, I'll wait and see what it looks like when his hair is done.

 

The trousers are just a basecoat of Tanned Leather at the moment.

I like both the male and female figures for kingdom death and as I tend to paint females more often I picked him up as he was a great sculpt.

 

You are off to a great start, look forward to seeing how you paint him. Is that a mold line running down his arm? In the pictures it looks like their May be a small one on his left hand also. A bit of brush on sealer applied right next to the line may help even it out a bit.

I'm not sure what that is on his arm, it's on the official store mini too so I don't think it's a mold line, I've just painted it up as skin until I work out what to do with it.

Checking his left hand, turns out he's wearing fingerless gloves and I'd painted over the ends :lol:

If you really dislike the arm line I would just carefully use an exacto blade and chop it off then apply some brush on sealer and keep on painting, but I know that can be hard to imagine doing once you have an area painted. But like Ub3r you could make it a vein or perhaps a fresh scar ?

Or use a sanding needle to gently file it down, but make sure to do it under water and/or with mask so you don't inhale dust. 

 

The barbarian in my avatar had a lot of the veins like that, you can see them in his left forearm. I did a light blue glaze a few times to pick it out and then glazed his flesh color over it a couple of times. Pretty easy, looks good too IMO.

      Separating a bee from its honey is always a risky prospect, but especially when they are giant, man-eating Titan Bees.
      However, when smeared with a concoction made with the pulped remains of it's larva, a person is temporarily rendered virtually invisible to the Bees. And so the Bug Thief started a thriving business stealing bee babies to make into potions, but how did she survive going into the hive in the first place? That's a mystery to be solved another day.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, her bee striped fur thingy didn't come out like I hoped (and she's stuck with rather wonky eyes) but I think she ended up looking fairly decent overall.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      While the title may sound like a part of a weird children's book series, it's actually a trio of Kingdom Death Pin-ups!
       

       
      The Bug Thief, her right arm goes across her face so I've left it off for now.
       

       
      The Swamp Girl. I have to paint her base, paint her and then sandwich the clear bit in between without making a mess.
       

       
      The Dogpole Mother, the hard part will be painting the Dogpoles so that they actually look like something!
       
      Starting with the Bug Thief:-
       

       
      Painted her face and boobs (Rosy Flesh > Flesh Wash > Rosy Flesh > Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh), added a touch of Scarlett Red to the final highlight for her lips and painted her eyes (The left one is a bit buggy, but I'm hoping it'll look better once I paint her hair).
