A Storm Knight WIP

Recommended Posts

Yep. Another Kingdom Death mini from me (can't get enough of the stuff at the moment), this time it's the fearsome Storm Knight:-

Didn't get too far today though:-

I've only managed to basecoat the steel and metallic blue parts in Nightmare Black.

 

I think this is going to be an even harder project than I thought.

Such a neat figure, again, really enjoying all the KD figures you are doing. I have over a dozen now and haven't painted any yet. They are going to be projects for myself when I get a chance to do them.

 

Off to a good start, a challenging figure is something that'll help you really get to be a better painter in my opinion.

I love this figure.  I have mine assembled and ready to go too.  I have a really bold color scheme in mind.  I'm interested to see what you do with him.

For some reason I can't see any images you've posted in any part of the forum.  :down:   I could see them last week so I'm not sure what's going on.

My colour scheme isn't going to be particularly bold.

I'm going heavy with metallics, mainly steel, with the bits of scale mail metallic blue, the faces in gold and all the pipework in brass.

Sounds like Imageshack is playing up again.

 

Are you painting him like a storm cloud with lightning clashing within him or a fluffy white happy cloud with sunlight and rainbows shining through? ^_^

 

He's going to be stormy if I can work out how to do it, I like the idea of a happy, fluffy, Rainbow Knight though.

Exciting figure choice Aku-Chan.

I agree with Ub3r.. choosing a difficult (or unfamiliar style) is a magnificent way to grow as a painter.

I do 25mm because they are so dang difficult, but I do mix the sizes, and genre's after a couple.

I love doing the frogs, then the goblins, then elves, and I also have two kingdom deaths that I will do

maybe next year (very ambitious ones to do).

Great seeing you doing these, the ram is mind blowing !

From the mists of time, it returns!

Found him while digging through my minis, looking for one to work on that had no skin (I'm waiting on some skin paint).

 

I got the rest of the metallic areas basecoated with Ruddy Leather, then applied Vallejo Oily Steel to the armour plates and Vallejo Gunmetal Blue to the scaly areas.

Then it got a nice Black Wash.

Thanks!

 

More progress:-

Reapplied the Oily Steel and Gunmetal Blue, then gave it a Blue Wash.

Started on the rest of the metallics, Vallejo Brassy Brass on the faces and Vallejo Bronze on pipes and cables, these got a brown wash.

That's a very busy mini... But I like how you've handled the armor. The blue looks really good! Might be a bit strong in the armpit area...

      Presenting an Android Flower-seller, part of the Servants of the Engine faction in the Twisted game universe.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, although given a second chance I probably would've given her brighter flowers, and luckily you can't see the terrible bit of mold slip going on across her bonnet from this angle.

      Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link.
       
      I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished.

      "During the opening stages of the Great War, it was quickly discovered that the human mind was too fragile for soldiers to spend any time in areas that had been heavily corrupted by Void Space.
      One of the solutions to this problem was to lift the restrictions on deploying Automaton Troopers to the front-lines. Drawing power from naturally occurring energy fields and equipped with self repair and competent AI systems, they could theoretically operate indefinitely without contact with their human creators.
      However, despite being deployed in large numbers, in the end they did little to halt the advance of the Void.
       
      Centuries later, many can still be found and most pose a threat to the humans they once served.
      This particular model, now known as a Flower Knight due to the flora it spontaneously generates around itself, is not openly hostile to anyone it comes across but will not tolerate any damage to the gardens they both create and guard."
       
      Presenting the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death.
       
      This is another one from the Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM that's been waiting for me to bring it back to the table for a final painting session or two. It's not a patch on the many, many other Flower Knights out there on the Inter-webs, but I'm really pleased with it.

      Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character.
       
      Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date.
