[GROUP/OPEN] RBG KS Trebeard Figures!

Recommended Posts

I don't which ones you have available to you Willen, but I would like to see you tackle a RBG mini after your work on a Reaper figure by the same sculptor ( that half elf for your exchange with Uber). I think that your paint style would lend itself well to RBG miniatures

I'll try and take some pictures of what I've gotten accomplished at this point. It's not much. I haven't touched a brush in over a week due to my work schedule and some other stuff.

Well, as a break from scifi (and because having something odd to work on the desk is good too) I will pick them up yesterday, snap a shot of them, and you guys can help me chose a mini.

 

Between Zombicide (for tabletop), Infinity (gaming but super detailed), I don't have a medieval-themed fine mini to paint ATM.

These are the minis so generously gifted to me by ub3r.

Now, I have a confession to make: I am honestly against the idea of someone wearing a helmet and no torso armor. It's like... a chainmail bikini!

 

I am pretty sure I have some warhammer bearded human heads I once picked up for a conversion... if I find them and they are the right size, I might use one of those instead. Would that be ok?

 

And damn on you guys, now I have a little vignette with a frost-bitten barbarian, a skeleton and zombie hands bursting from the ground!  :devil:

 

Which mini do you want me to paint? I am leaning towards the left-most one in the first pic for the dio (no, no the bombshell babe...)

Leftmost RBG on first pic sounds good to me! Go for a conversion if you feel like it. It'd still be 99% RBG figure heh

Maybe this thread will motivate me to actually get these done...got some (sloppy) base coats on while working on a miniature for the last exchange I was supposed to be in..... based and a weapon swap on Belegast, should move forward nicely from here I hope!

Feeling pretty good about Ullir, though you can tell that I start to hit a wall with really going all out after I did probably the best pale skin I've done. But that happens all too often with miniatures I paint, I really focus on one thing with a miniature, and then just kind of push everything else across the finish line. It takes a really good idea for me to keep the pace up for all aspects of a mini with work and life demands.

 

Anyway, enough blabber, Ullir is done (waiting for some stuff to arrive to base him), Red Meghan is like 95% done.

Here are the two I've started working on. Tradkarl and Urrl.

 

Tradkarl - I just love this figure, he's a beast of a man, I think I'm going to paint him up as a druid, he has that look to me of a "Grizzly Adams" and would probably be cool to turn into a bear or have a bear companion.

Urrl, I'm going completely different from what everyone else is doing with him, what I mean by this is that I'm going to try my hand at African skin tones (for only the 2nd time).

Nice! Hopefully Ullr becomes one of those great 'blank canvas' sculpts that pop up every now and again in different schemes.

I have a problem. 

 

As I said, I don't like the helmets, and they look like a tad small on top of a looong neck.

 

But the replacement head I have is a bit large.

Sorry for the blurry pic.

 

From some angles he is ok (like, from the back and side). It makes him look like a scrawny wiry guy and not a mass of muscles (the sculpt is not a mass of muscles, anyway). 

 

The problem is that I like it enough that I will glue, sculpt the back hair again for integration, and prime it... and then decide if it's too much.  :blush:

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work

       
      Mar 1:  base GS sculpting

       
      — LONG BREAK —
       
      Aug 2:  skin lined, basecoated, and shaded


       
      Aug 6:  skin initial highlights

      Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one.  I’ve shied away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon.  
       
      In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon...  oops!  
       


       
      I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown).  I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green.  
       
      For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown.  
       

       

       

       

       
      Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base.  I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it.  
       
      in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. 
       
      Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend.  That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! 
       
      Thanks for looking.
