50210: Bonnie, Futuristic Heroine By Xherman1964

Recommended Posts

I have started to paint some big 54mm and 1/6 scale minis.

 

To ensure that I get something finished, I will now start to paint a 28mm too.

 

Here is Bonnie

 

Prepped and based for priming.

As a matter of fact I'm really upset,  the primer came out a bit gritty on this one.

 

Normally I use GW spray paint never a problem, now i bought a can of Army Painter Primer..

 

I will tackle Bonnie soon, this is NOT a smooth layer...

I noticed that it looked gritty, but wasn't sure if it was the camera or what was going on. Maybe you need to shake the can bit bit more?

Oh, I didn't notice how clumpy that was until I blew the pic up. Is army painter primer sandable? Might be best remove it and start again. This is why I stopped using spray primer. Not enough control.

Well I did some damage control.

 

I took my Dremel and used a polish tool. It worked fine till the Dremel got really hot and the cover started melting :grr:

So, off to the store for a new Dremel. :wacko:

 

I polished Bonnie back to normal, did the same thing with Maria and KY-RA on the parts where it was needed.

No pics from that. I will brush on primer soon to correct it.

 

Suffice to say, yeah for the Dremel... although sad that my old one died in the process. :blink:

 

This week I don't have much time.

But soon.soon they will get their new primer and then things will get serious.

 

Hope y'all will have patience enough to follow these WIP's I paint slow!!!

 

On the primer topic.. never had this problem with citadel spray cans,. I will shake the can more and try a test piece first next time.

Should that be gritty again then no more Army Painter spray for me.

Although the antishine does work..

You stripped all the primer off Bonnie with a Dremel?  What kind of polisher bit are you using?  I seldom do stripping with a power tool, though I've done prep work occasionally.

 

For a full paint strip, I use a chemical like Simple Green, etc.  I've used W&N Brush Cleaner when I want it to work faster, but I don't usually do that except for little bits that Simple Green doesn't get.

I will post a pic of it soon. Its  a very small metal brush.. Use it on a low setting and keep it light. Have patience and let the tool do its work.

It strips fine, just be careful not to apply pressure, especially when it comes to fine detail.

Noses and such I only touch so lightly...

      I thought people might enjoy watching me helplessly flailing about as I attempt to paint an exceptionally intricate mini.
       
      This is Tzandi:-
       

       
      She's one fourth of my Monkey King Gang.
      Made a little progress today:-
       

       
      Painted her skin.
      This started as a base of Elf Flesh, was shaded with Flesh Wash and then highlighted with Elf Flesh and 1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh.
      She then got lips of 1:1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh/Warlord Purple, and dots of Brown Wash for eyes and between her lips.
      I had made a little bit of a mess painting her hands, so I went back over them carefully with Flesh Wash, just to give her separate fingers again.
       
      I automatically started painting her bosom as skin before realising she's wearing a dress under her corset, so that will be painted over eventually. The next job is hair and her ridiculously tiny hair ribbons.

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      Quick paint spread throughout the day.

      I painted this dude up as my technomancer for our Starfinder campaign. The idea is his coat is very tech-ey. I used a Bones Chronoscope miniature and modded in some antenna. Also slightly purple skin, cause this is a Lashunta.

      I had a bad day and decided to do some painting in between the terrain stuff.
      I did quick red /brown/blue liner primer coats at 920 and put stuff aside. Then did another 15-20 minutes ruddy leather on belts and boots, intense brown and oiled leather on coat, creamy ivory on shirt, red shadow and carnage red lightened with Ivory and medium. Corporea black for pants.
