Tuma Windrider

Recommended Posts

With the sudden surge of busts being done recently, I decided to finally start the one I have sitting on my paint desk. It is Tuma Windrider from Ledgendarion Miniatures and it is a beast of a bust. This is one of the better resin casts I have seen as there was very little flash and almost no pinhole that needed filling and the detail is on another level from what I usually paint. Having finally gotten my airbrush setup finished, I plan to use my airbrush for a good amount of the painting. This is a good sized mini that I think will be a great place to start with airbrush blending. Or it could go horribly wrong and end up in the dip. I'll also be breaking out my lathe to make a nice display base for this. Maybe some African hardwood or something. Not sure yet. 

 

Thus far I have only removed what mold lines I could see on the larger part. I haven't touched the shield or weapons just yet. So on to some pics of where I am now...

Woo! I knew he'd be big and awesome. The casting is superb. I can't wait to see what you do with him. Mine should be on the way soon. I'm so glad you decided to start him.

This is an amazing bust. First time I saw it was in the competition at this year's ReaperCon. I look forward to seeing your progress on him.

A little more work done. I find that while airbrushing is fun and different than other painting, there is a lot of time spent cleaning the dang thing. I may end up buying another one of these so I can have one in the ultrasonic cleaner and one being used. Otherwise, I've enjoyed using it. There was a little issue with "tip dry" clogging me up but I started noticing the signs and things went smoother from there. I also still need to work on my thinning. I had a little issue with spidering due to the paint being too thin. Thankfully I was able to remove it. I've only done a basecoat on the leather vest so far. tonight I'll see how well the secret weapon washes spray to shade the vest a bit.

 

I'm stuck on what color to use for the lion. I was thinking Ginger cookie might work but then that might be too light. Palomino gold? Pumpkin Orange? I would appreciate any suggestions. Maybe something other than a reaper color? I also have some FW inks I could use.

 

anyway, pics of the bust thus far. I sprayed the vest in Vallejo Red Leather.

I would consider a desert yellow, highlighted with a creamy white,.

Yea, I don't think I have the right color in my collection. I'll have to go looking for one that will work as I'm horrible at mixing colors. I think there will be a lot of drybrushing on this due to how much detail is actually sculpted for fur.

I think Palamino Gold and Pumpkin Orange are both far too saturated to work well.  Ginger Cookie seems like a good color to start with, especially as it is easier to make it darker than lighter.

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      Quick paint job on this fun little bust! 
       
      Painted entirely with Pro Acryl paints from Monument Hobbies

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      I hope this is ok as it is outside the fantasy/sci-fi realm but this is what I've been working on while taking a break from the Bones 4 core set. This is a 1/10 bust from Young Miniatures sculpted by Young B. Song, Templar Knight YH1837.
