03190: Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger

Recommended Posts

I decided I want to go with a "blackwood" bow. I found a better picture monday that has more color tone in it that I am going to attempt to incorporate.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one as well! I'm enjoying the figures you're putting out here.

Thank you sir!

Ginger Bread cookie Paint sent to me during the 12 days of Reaper has become my new best friend. Although it is the base coat as I am going to glaze most of the leather with black Wash and/or Ink.

 

And the bow is washed in white so that when i go to "black wood" it i can pull more color tone out!

PICTURE HEAVY! I'm making progress faster than I can process photos!

 

I am glazing the leather with black Reaper Ink until I get it dark enough.

 

Here is a bit of progression!

Now I am highlight the raised sections of the leather... Going to attempt to make it look like it is semi-reflective.

Here is the bow progression: The Idea is a Blackwood bow and I found a really nice picture. It has some hits of blue and green in it.

I got more work done this weekend. he is about 98%. 

 

Here is a photo of his chest and base at about 95% finished. I took a queue from Dontfear on the base and I am pleased how it turned out. It looks a little better this time around.

 

 

The process for the base: NOTE* Left to right means the photos left, not the figures.

  1. Left side of stones lined with pure white.
  2. Glazed left to right with GW:Vomit Brown.
  3. Left side of the stones tipped with Pearl White.
  4. Glazed Middle to right: with a mix of 3:1 GW: Vomit Brown & Scorched Brown. Heavily watered down.
  5. Touch up left side tips with Pearl white. water down heavily.
  6. NOT SHOWN: Washed from RIGHT TO LEFT with MSP: Ginger Bread {which has become my new favorite color for painting}

And the shorts are pretty much done but after reading a post this morning about glazing and Monkeysloths recommendation for glazing I'm probably going to go back and blend it better. I think It looks pretty good at the moment.

FANTASTIC WORK! The Big Fuzzy Guy turned out far better than I would have imagined...taking into account my imagination that is a compliment. Even the base is a BEAUTY.

Thank you Malefactus! Your imagination is a great one, in my humble opinion, and your compliment is high praise.

      This is my version of a Games workshop Aragorn. I didn't want to paint him as Aragorn since I have two of these same minis so I decide to go for a purple skinned, white haired drow ranger.  I'm going to use him as a swordsman named Vigo in my Rangers of Shadowdeep games.
      This mini was a blast to paint, I like how the highlights turned out. Thanks for looking!

      So this is my first complete kitbash, this one is made of parts from five different kits. I've made it to be used as a ranger for my Rangers of Shadowdeep warband. Hope you like it!

      Finally getting back to painting a bit more consistently and finishing things.  Here is one I finished recently, Theo from Zombicide: Wolfsburg.  I'm multi-tasking him to also serve as the ranger for my ranger's of shadowdeep warband.  Hoping to have my warband finished by the end of the month.

      Thanks in advance for and C&C you give.

      Hi Everyone,

      This is my first time sharing my miniatures step by step, and excited to do so. Hopefully I can learn some things and everyone else who views the thread will learn a bit too.
      I have been looking forward to the Starcadia board game and especially painting the minis that come with it. So first up is the Weeble alien monster. I picked it for 2 reasons, 1 because it was a simple model and I wanted to try my hand at the big eye. There are 4 total Weeble models and it took about 4-5 hours to get to the point in the last photo. I decided to mimic the illustration that came on the Weeble card in the game, so I am using a similar color scheme.

      First step was prepping the model, and removing the mold lines. 2 of the 4 models had 2 bad areas on their left fin that left gaps and a rough spot. To fix it, I tried a new method, I put a little varnish on each area. If you haven't tried it, I definitely recommend it for small gaps or trouble areas that need filled or smoothed. I put a small dab on, let it dry and done, no need to pull out the putty.

      2nd step was priming. I don't like the spray can so I use gesso. It might take a little longer, but no noxious fumes and extra space needed, just brush it on and let it dry. I just spread it thin and quick most of the time, hence the streaking in the picture. The streaking never shows on a finished mini from what I have experienced.

      3 is where the fun began for me, choosing the colors and beginning to paint. My most recent elven minis, I started experimenting with different ways to do base coating and time around I am trying a colored base that is different that the final paint layer. I'm trying this out to see if I can reduce a step in my process and still get results I like. After examining the illustration, I settled on a blue-green for the body of the Weeble, and yellow for the eye. I plan on keeping with the warm yellow highlight in the front and the cold blue / purple shadow in the back. Once I decided that, I chose my basing colors, of a dark yellow brown for the front and dark blue purple for the back.

      4 with the base shadows on the model, I started working from dark to light. I mixed up a glaze of a medium green and medium purple blue. I gradually worked up the colors with multiple layers making sure to blend the colors together where the transition occurred between them. I left the eye alone, because the dark yellow brown was perfect for the yellow eye.

      5 once I was happy with the dark colors, I moved on to my mid-tones. I mixed up glazes of yellow green for the warm light and a blue green for the cold light. I took my time on this step again applying the glazes in layers to build up the color. I decided to try reflected / bounce lighting on the model, so I applied the blue green more on top of the model and the yellow green more on the bottom. I imagine the lighting being blue white (like a daylight bulb) which results a warmer reflected light in the areas not directly hit by the blue light.

      6 after a while I moved on to the eye. I continued with painting dark to light, so I chose an orange brown for the light area and the same yellow brown and dark blue purple for the shadowed area. Again I gradually applied the glazes and blended them together.

      Overall I am pleased with the direction it is going, and it is still far from done. I having gotten to the brightest highlights or even attempted the mouth yet. After that will be the finishing touches, the green slime, and scaly lumps. In the illustration the lumps are black but I don't think black will look good, any suggestions? I was also thinking of doing a slime trail, or more drool I've not done something like that before does anyone have any suggestions in the direction? Or should I not do a slime trail or more drool?
