Good grief, more steampunk! aka Dodger from Twisted

Recommended Posts

The steampunk bug continues to bite hard!

 

Decided to try one of my new Twisted minis, before I end up with an intimidatingly large pile of them, choose Dodger:-

I hate it when they insist on making you cut those tiny, fragile pieces from great, big, giant lumps of sprue.

As expected, removing him from the sprue cost him part of his scarf and coat, but I managed to do an okay job of repairing them.

I also managed to assemble him slightly wrong looking at the official pics, apparently he's supposed to be aiming forward.

Did his skin with a 1:1 Vallejo Dwarf Flesh/Vallejo Flat Flesh scheme. Also managed to get his teeth and eyes (no pupils though, they're too tiny!).

Started on his hair with Palomino Gold.

Thanks guys!

 

I prefer this pose too, it does seem to fit him better (in my humble opinion), makes it very hard to paint one of his arms though.

 

 

Progress:-

Finished off his hair with highlights of Palomino Gold and Yellowed Bone.

 

He then got a Yellowed Bone shirt and I based his waistcoat (Vallejo Olive Green) and coat (Sapphire Blue), the blue needs another layer or two.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      Presenting the Scarecrow, part of Dorothy's gang in the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I did have to leave out some of the finer details though, there's little, tiny stitches all over him that I could barely see never mind paint!

      Presenting Sardar Hardit Singh, part of the crew of the Nautilus from the game Lost World Exodus by Warcradle Studios.
       
      Didn't achieve the Indian skintone I was aiming for, but it is some of my best skin painting, so I guess that sort of counts as a win?

      Like an ageing 70's rock band heading out on yet another final tour, I fancied having another go at making a WIP thread.
       
      This time I have two different companies take on the Steampunk genre.
      Warcradles Nautilus crew from their Lost World Exodus line:-
       

       
      In the back row we have Violet Smee and Sardar Hardit Singh, and the front row consists of Neko Mei, Erasmus Darwin, Charlotte Anning and Rani Nimue.
       
      These minis are a lot better sculpted and cast than the last lot I got from the range. Changing hands seems to have done the game good, mini-wise at least.
       
      And Demented Games Oz Gang from their Twisted Game:-
       

       
      At the back we have the Scarecrow, the Tin-man and the Drunken Cowardly Lion, and in front Mecha Toto and Little Dorothy.
       
      First I've made a start on Singh:-
       

       
      Trying out a new paint colour, Barbarian Flesh. 
      His skintone isn't exactly screaming Indian, but I like it.
       
      I also had a go at the Scarecrow:-
       

       
      So far he has a Cork Brown head, Yellow Ochre hair, Iraqi Sand teeth, Bronze and Andrea Blue eyes and I've painted the underside of his hat Medium Olive.
      He also has a line of very fine stitches going up the centre of his face that I'm not even going to attempt to paint.
