Lion Man: 02880

Recommended Posts

I have to admit, I didn't notice the metals (which are awesome btw) because I was too distracted by the excellent job you did on the fur and hide. Very well done!

Those metals look amazing!

Thanks, it was a new endeavor for me.

:) thank you. I have decided TMM is my jam! :P

 

The skin colour for the lion is super.

What did you use?

 

I love it.

Thanks partner!

 

GW Vomit brown for the front and then GW: Vomit brown with some white in it (3:1). All my study on lions showed their "undercarriage" is lighter than their top (back).

 

After that it was washes with Reaper Brown ink and Brown wash until I got it in the right place.

 

His Mane is layered the same way with the top/middle using a Reaper Black Ink blended to the brown then washed in Reaper Brown wash for blending.

That is a truly spectacular Miniature.

The colors, the application of color, the balance all point at a very

well controlled, and thought out delivery.

This is a masterwork. 

Extremely well done !

Hmmm.

 

In BONES II i got the Chimaera but it missed two heads.

Reaper sends me a whole new Chimaera.

 

So I will cut the wings off the first one, fill the gaps and I'll have a Lion to practice on.

Oh wait I also got a lion in the Expansion set... :wacko:

Wet blending is your friend, no doubt, the transition between fur colors can be tricky. Take a look at the other "beastmen" I did. I did more wet blending on the sabertooth and the Gnoll.

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
