Elisabeth Suess - Mistress of Cybernetics! (plus assistant) WIP

Recommended Posts

Been desperate to start on my Wolsung stuff, unfortunately most of it needs to be based before I can start painting, and I can't base any of it because I'm waiting on some basing stamps (to make more awesome cobblestones than I can create with my current sculpting skills).

 

But I did find a couple I could mount on corks, Ms. Suess and a Ghoul (both from the Ven Rier faction):-

Currently waiting for the Primer to fully dry, so it'll probably be tomorrow before I make any more progress.

I think I should have left off that umbrella until later, makes it very hard to paint parts of her.

 

But her skin is done (Vallejo Flat Flesh>Flesh Wash>Flat Flesh>1:1 Flat Flesh/Linen White), just need to do her mechanical eye to finish off her face.

Also finished the Ghouls skin (Vallejo Dead Flesh>Flesh Wash>Dead Flesh>1:1 Dead Flesh/Linen White), plus he has Yellowed Bone teeth and Rainy Grey eyes (no pupils though, they're too small).

Concentrating on Ms. Suess:-

Damn umbrella!

 

Painted her mechanical eye and hair. From a base of Lava Orange, shaded with a Red Wash, reapplied the Lava Orange, then I tried highlights of 1:1 Lava Orange/Palomino Gold, didn't really work so went with spot highlights of pure Palomino Gold.

Wasn't sure about it at first, but now I think they look quite good, though the placement could be better!

Continuing with Ms. Suess:-

I may have overdone the pink.

 

The bottom part of the dress is 1:1 Hot Punk Pink/Linen White, highlighted with pure Linen White, the top half is Vallejo Warlord Purple, and the corset and umberella is Vallejo Hexed Lichen (haven't done anything but basecoat these parts yet).

She also has Vallejo Andrea Blue power cables, and Vallejo Oily Steel feet. These bits have been shaded with a wash but still need highlighting.

Man, what a crazy mini... Have you read Mieville's "The Scar?" I can't see her without thinking of the remade.

I haven't, it's been years since I last picked up a book.

 

The Wolsung setting seems to be really into body modification, a sizeable chunk of the characters have a replaced limb or two, Ms. Suess has taken it a bit far though.

 

She's the mini that drew me to the range though, well her and Vito Vendetta (an undead Halfling mobster).

Yeah, not Ms. Suess (I tried removing her mechanical arm to make it easier to paint and a load of paint from her torso came with it. She was scrubbed down so I could start again but I lost interest).

 

So I've done a bit more work on her assistant, the Ghoul.

Just did his engine parts in Vallejo Oily Steel and Hammered Copper, Black and Brown washes, then reapplied the Oily Steel and Hammered Copper. Didn't want to go too bright with the metallics, keep it looking a bit worn and grubby.

I got carried away today, and he's all finished (well he was, but I just spotted that stray bit of blue on his engine).

 

Basecoated his coat and hat (Ashen Blue), waistcoat (Sapphire Blue) and trousers (Rainy Grey), then gave them all a Blue Wash. I then reapplied the basecoats and the coat and hat got an extra highlight of 1:1 Ashen Blue/Linen White.

His scarf(?) was based in Aircraft Grey and highlighted with Linen White.

 

Now he goes into stasis until I finally get my basing stamps.

Great work, shame the other one had to be cleaned.

 

Thanks!

 

It's not a total loss, I was starting to have second thoughts about Ms. Suess' colour scheme any ways and it gave me the opportunity to start over.

Great work on the minion assistant.   Now we just need the mistress to make the pair.

I need a free cork before I can get back to Ms. Suess. At the moment that requires buying some more corks or actually finishing something for a change.

    • By Lord of the Dish Pit
      For the better part of this year, I've been going through something of a creative funk and it's been driving me a bit mad. (well more than usual anyway) So after thinking upon it for awhile, and taking the advice of the opening track of White Zombie's Astro Creep 2000, (Perhaps you'd better start at the beginning...) I've decided to embrace the madness....
      By the power vested in me by the Great Pumpkin I hereby declare it to be 1996. The world is a saner place and I've just gotten my mitts on the first minis that weren't part of a boxed set or boardgame and soon shall rise a mighty skeletal horde. (To those of you who may not have been alive in '96, fret not I have decided that you exist. Ia! Ia! Ingenti Cucurbia!)
      Anyway, first up are these guys.

      A Heartbreaker Miniatures Army Pack that I think might be Phil Lewis sculpts. Like all of my older metal Undead, they were given a bath in Simple Green awhile back. The original Undead army had been repainted several times over the years, not yet knowing about the wonders of the Green, they had several rather thick layers on them from this. So the decision to restart from a clean slate on the whole lot was quite easy.

      An Armorcast Ruined Mausoleum. Also painted several times, but I'm leery as to how the Green would react with the resin. But even with the new black undercoat, the detail isn't obscured that I can see. Now to find my Painting Flannel Of Necromancy...

      Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit.  The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time.
       
      I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired.  So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them.  But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate.  So I just muddled my way through.
       
      My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them.
       

      The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft.  
      Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red
       

      Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist.  This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off.
       

      The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green.  Brilliant Green finished them.  The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey.
       

      The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin.  This is one of my favorite combinations.
       

      I love the Blue Greys triad.  Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow.  I think this is my favorite.
       

      I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow.
      The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple.  The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead.
      This thread will be dedicated to all the beautiful female vampires/necromancers/ghosts and apparitions.
      I will also include all my Sophie minis..
       
      Here are the girls I have painted before to show what this is all about, soon more Undead / Evil Sisters will follow.
       
      EDIT - Changed the Name of the thread from the Alluring Death to Ladies of Death since not all are actually Undead.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
       
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
       
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
       
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
       
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.

      Presenting an Android Flower-seller, part of the Servants of the Engine faction in the Twisted game universe.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, although given a second chance I probably would've given her brighter flowers, and luckily you can't see the terrible bit of mold slip going on across her bonnet from this angle.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
