GLITTERWOLF Paints Tuma Windrider Legendarion Bust

Recommended Posts

I could use some feedback .

 

I was planning of painting both shoulderplates/straps in a different colour from the leather armored vest.

Would that work or would it look weird?

 

The idea is that the vest is reddish brown leather, and the shouder plates / larger straps are made of leather from a prey maybe zebra, maybe snake something like that.

 

The belts will be grey/black...

 

Any comments, suggestions on that?

Some Reaper Linen White as base for the shoulder pad and straps.

They might become Zebra skin, not sure yet.

 

Also I gave his hair a base of Scale 75 Kalahari Orange

Sooo I used Vallejo Game Ink Sepia on the hair ( you didn't think he would keep the Slayer hair did you?) and some Scale 75 White Sands for the beard and the eye stripes and above the nose ( look at lions..)

I did the same thing (sepia wash) to my tumas mane. :-D

 

 

Great minds think alike   :blues:

So I wasn't satisfied with the Zebra idea.

I repainted those armour pieces.

 

I'm toying with this idea:

I got a bigger pedestal for Tuma, made of unfinished wood.

So I can paint that.

 

Should I Zebra that? Or would it distract too much from him?

 

Also gave some Bone parts of weapons a base of Reaper Aged Bone.

I think making the base a zebra pattern would be way to much distraction and take your focus away from the bust.  You would want the pedestal to blend into the background so that all the focus is on your excellent paint job...so a plain dark ebony base/pedestal would be better IMO.

Thank you. I was afraid of that...so I will keep the pedestal neutral then.

 

Still thinking about some "prey animal leather"..maybe one or two of the belts can be an animal skin.

Yeah a base shouldn't compete with him, a zebra pattern would give the eye too much to look at instead of just looking at the details of Tuma. Maybe the belts in a skin that is more in the same color family as him?

      So as hinted in my US Armored Company thread, here's the beginning of @Glitterwolf's Dragoons!
       
      Some work on the Dutch tonight, PTRLs and C&Vs Had a problem with the wash I put on them last night, so had to re do the base coat. Tried a different wash, seen on one of the C&Vs, so need to try something else... Thanks for looking! SGT G   link to my US force

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      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.
