Kingdom Death Twilight Knight Pinup

Recommended Posts

My twilight knight isn't even assembled. 

Yours came out so good! I love her skin and the gems really pop as well. The colors all work together for a lovely twlight look.

I think she look great, and nothing wrong with vibrant

I really like your colors, and I think they work really nicely with the sculpt. I particularly like the purples in the thigh-wrappings.

 

I do have to disagree that "every painter must" this model...it's always been one of my least favorite KD pieces. Most of the pinups, really.

 

But I do love the attention and care Poots puts into his work. One day, I'll have all my KDM KS stuff. One day. And another day, I'll have time to paint them. Hopefully in that order.

Absolutely love your colour choices, and of course her face and golden hair become the sun in my mind.

 

The purple-to-blue to violet sunset tones are delicious eye candy, and the smooth, warm skintones compliment beautifully. Did you use some violet in the skin tone shadows?

 

I find the model.... sexually overstated, but you've really turned it into something truly gorgeous. The night/sunset tones make it feel intimate or romantic rather than blandly tarty.

Yep, totally in love with this piece. Fantastic work.

Yes, fantastic work with the colours.

Yeah, not a fan of those either. LOVE the monster's aesthetics on the most part.

Awesome.

 

Love the knee gems and the skintones

 The skin isn't fully blended and I discovered that a little Indian Shadow goes a long way, but that's just part of the learning curve.  Overall I think Scalecolor is nice, just different.

Great work Auberon. Your choice of color scheme does the sculpt justice, I think. My Twilight Knight pvc versions are as of yet unpainted.

What are you two waiting for? Get to it!  ::P:  Well, OK, it is Mothers Day.  But tomorrow you can take a sick day just to paint.

 Thanks.  A lot of what I've painted has tended towards vibrant.  I'm thinking of a future project where everything is fairly subdued, but I've no concrete plans yet.

 

Great job. Love the color scheme you went with. Definitely twilighty.

 I think you just made up a word there.  ::P:

 

Not the pinup, but I've posted the original on teh forum a while ago: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52574-twilight-knight-kingdom-death/

 Cash, I feel as if you are somehow missing the point of painting these.  It's cool if beefcake's your thing, but this guy doesn't qualify...  ::D:

 Some things don't always come across well in print.  I wasn't being 100% serious that everyone must paint one.  Just 99...

The skin is all done using the Scale 75 "scalecolor" flesh set. The Indian Shadow is more red while the African Shadow is quite purple. Full details are in the WIP section.

Well you guys are in trouble because they came in a set of 8 and I have six more to go.  :devil:

Ha. No harm done, I think. My response was intended in good humor.

 

And, even if the sculpts aren't my favorites, like I said: the detail in each piece is awesome, and seeing what a talented painter does with it is always a pleasure. Your Twilight Knight has a brilliant color scheme and a great facial expression, so I'm looking forward to the rest of the set.

      Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link.
       
      I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished.

      "During the opening stages of the Great War, it was quickly discovered that the human mind was too fragile for soldiers to spend any time in areas that had been heavily corrupted by Void Space.
      One of the solutions to this problem was to lift the restrictions on deploying Automaton Troopers to the front-lines. Drawing power from naturally occurring energy fields and equipped with self repair and competent AI systems, they could theoretically operate indefinitely without contact with their human creators.
      However, despite being deployed in large numbers, in the end they did little to halt the advance of the Void.
       
      Centuries later, many can still be found and most pose a threat to the humans they once served.
      This particular model, now known as a Flower Knight due to the flora it spontaneously generates around itself, is not openly hostile to anyone it comes across but will not tolerate any damage to the gardens they both create and guard."
       
      Presenting the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death.
       
      This is another one from the Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM that's been waiting for me to bring it back to the table for a final painting session or two. It's not a patch on the many, many other Flower Knights out there on the Inter-webs, but I'm really pleased with it.

      Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character.
       
      Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date.

      'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.
      The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.
      However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.
      In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'
       
      Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.
       
      I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.

      I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster.
      The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out.
      My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.
