A Great Game Hunter Rogue

Recommended Posts

I love the pants, the jacket and the shirt. I feel like the crossbow could use a little more weathering. 

As I was looking at the pics, i thought "Oh, he used a paper towel as a background. It's neat how the dot's make an impression of falling snow while he's out in the wild." Or maybe I'm just really in a Christmas mood. Did anyone else get this feeling?

 

 

EDIT: Also, I like your base. It really sells him as being off on his own.

The color choices are quite nice. I agree that his crossbow looks a bit "right off the shelf" for a hunter in the wilds. Really digging the base!

You know I have never really been a fan of Kingdom Death stuff, but this one is really nice. I like the posture, the look, the equipment he is holding and that expression. Your paint job is really nice. thank you for sharing.

It's a great mini and well painted as to the crossbow, it does look like it is brand new and I think that may be due to the fact that appears to have no grain detail on the wood. But you have done an excellent job.

He's so colorful. The KD miniatures -- or at least their illustrations -- always look so dark and glum. I really like your take on him.

Most of the ones I've seen are so dark brown as to be almost black. But they are old. They tend to have darker edges, I guess from handling.

 

So maybe some grime where hands and fingers would be much of the time?

Oh, also the crossbow doesn't have a string, which affects its look.

 

The ones I've seen have really thick strings, like rope, wound heavily around the ends of the bow.

 

I think this one looks good, just very clean.

Really like the shading on the flesh.  Very smooth transitions. Same with the pants and shirt. I like his gray hair but it could use either a bit of shading or highlighting to enhance the texture. His eyes are a little "wild" looking although very, very well done.  I'm not sure if it's the camera, but the fur looks a little "plastic."  Maybe some deeper shading would reduce that.  Great job on the belt buckle and other metal fixtures. And what exactly is that blue scarf-thing?  Looks good but I don't know what it is.

I think stringing crossbows is a little beyond my non-existent modding skills, but I do think I'll try painting it a little darker.

I'm going to practise on the crossbow of my Pin-up Hunter first though.

The fur isn't so shiny looking in hand, that's down to my poor camera skills, but my struggle with painting short hair continues!

 

I'm pretty sure the scarf is a hunting trophy, it looks a lot like part of the robes that a monster called The Watcher is made of.

Great job! I wouldn't have guessed this guy was a KD figure as he lacks horns/woe/ insanity/etc. I strung a bow once using my wife's hair. I believe there's a tutorial linked on my WIP of the Nubian Princess or something like that. Aren't these larger than 28mm?

They're 35mm I think (30 something anyways).

 

I'll check out that tutorial, as I said, I'll try out some stuff on another crossbow and if it works I'll return to this guy.

That base looks simply amazing.

 

I really like the shading you've done on his skin, and the color choices really compliment each other and look very nice while still being true to the character of the mini. Very nice!

      As seen in the WIP section (thanks for all who helped me out). I thought I'd pop her here as no one else seems to have painted her.

      More vintage minis from my childhood.  Been soaking a dozen or so in isopropyl  for about a week to get the 40 yr old enamel paint off them.  With much scrubbing some of them came out pretty clean!  Will post as they come along, here's one of my all-time favorites. I remember when I bought him in a little attic hobby shop in Ithaca, NY. Unfortunately I don't remember the packaging.  Such a stoic little dude...any ideas?

      Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself.

      Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.

      Presenting Skully, the third member of my Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. She likes skulls and has a pet rock.
       
      I think this is the weakest of the Survivors, it's not a bad mini but it's a bit of an awkward sculpt that doesn't make a whole lot of sense out of context. Was still fun to paint though.
