The Craven - Red Box Games

Recommended Posts

After all the events of last week I decided that I needed a real challenge.

I have had the RBG Kickstarter pieces sitting in my "To Be Painted" box for some time,

and I said I have never painted one of Tre Manor's pieces before.  I went for The Craven

since they look like quite the challenge, and fun. 

 

So.. Cleaned up, washed, mounted on bases, and Primed...(I really needed to feel primer

under my brush again after the crusader Knight !!!

 

So here is The Craven awaiting the first touch of color...(Think Pinks are out) !!!

(ROFL).

Love, love, love the Craven. They are some of my favorite Trebeard sculpts. I can't wait to see what you do with these, Jay!!

Those are such awesome models.  I think this will be a positive challenge for you.

 

The other bonus here... he'll be completely hooked on Trebeard sculpts! BWAHAHAHAHAH!  :devil:

I sat down with some Brown liner and used it as a wash on the figures.

Filling in the depth areas, but at the same time exploring the sculpts.

OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!  These things are AWESOME !

Detail is incredible, complexity is daunting (but doable..says he after 1.5 years of using a brush).

Cloth, Metal, skuls, leather, Flesh, and bone.  These babies have EVERYTHING going on !

 

I tend to use the lining coat as an archeological tool, to highlight for me the artists strengths,

and visions if possible.  So I'm not perfect with this coat, its there to highlight to MY Eye what I

want to do with it.  Now I look at it for hours to see what Tre has given me to play with.

Looks like quite the play yard at this stage.

Here are some tinted photos.

(and then I slow down to paint one at a time).

What I like about Tre's figures the most is the amount of detail he's able to achieve at such a small scale. He's a lot like your favorite Tom Meier, IMO.

Noticed the similarity right off the bat.  Attention to detail, perfectionist, subtle touches that increast the depth of folds, and texturizing.

I am Sure that Tom is a fan of Tre's work !

 

Thank you oh great Enabler !

Haha! I'm a huge fan of Tre's work though I haven't painted up nearly enough of it myself. He just finished KS #6 and will do another KS in May or June, I'll make sure to put the bug in your ear then.  :poke:

This has been rather productive today.

Discovered I didn't have to do something today, so I got some extra time to paint.

 

I just added some flesh tones to the Figures, but also discovered that the bow on one

of the craven did not cure (re-glued and drying now).

However, its amazing how dynamic Tre carved the muscle work on these miniatures !

 

Here is some base fleshed Craven (shadow layer):

Yeah, I really like the musculature on Tre's figures. He's awesome at doing it.

 

These are looking Fantastic!

Got the lagging Craven caught up with the other two.  Bow arm is now attached, and he is base fleshed.

Amazing how many skulls are hanging off the chain..

Wonder if Tre is a Stephen King fan...hmmmmm.

 

Here is the third of the gruesome threesome.

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season.
      So I am getting back on track with some Orcs.  These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10.
      There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them.
      I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis.

      lots of pictures below

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).
