WIP for Loratham - Enigma Miniatures (ENM3029)

Recommended Posts

Been working on a few things today, the only one I can show since I'm doing my Summer Exchange at the same time is this guy who represents my D&D Group's Goliath Barbarian "Drhogath".

 

Figure: Loratham, The Lost and Then Found

Manufacturer: Enigma Miniatures

Series: Massive Darkness

SKU: ENM3029

Sculptor: Raúl García Latorre

Size: 38mm to the eyes, 40mm to the top of the head

Material: Metal

 

 

Here you can see I had already put him together as his weapon is attached at the wrists (I pinned and superglued them followed by liquid green stuff). His leg is also super glued on and has liquid green stuff to add more stability and fix any gaps.

 

I also added a little set of 3 skulls that I had on hand, I think they are from Reaper.

 

The base is built up out of cork board and then I added Red Oxide Paste (Vallejo) to give it more texture.

I primed with SC75 black primer and then lightly dry-brush reaper brush-on primer to bring out details.

I'm going with the color scheme that the player wants here, he wants stock goliath from D&D which means I went back over his skin with blue liner and then went to work on skin tones using various grays, whites, and blues to obtain the look I wanted. These included: Reaper MSP HD Dragon Blue, Rich Indigo, Concrete Grey, Blue Flame, and Solid White and SC75 Eclipse Gray.

Added eyes and hair colored to an off-white and then hit with some Solid White Reaper HD to do some highlighting. I used some SC75 Sahara Yellow for the skulls/bones, added in some Reaper MSP Graveyard Bone, some shadows with Reaper Brown Ink. I just kept going back and forth mixing these in different amounts until I got the color of bones that I wanted.

Anyhow, this is where he stands right now, including the base build, I've spent probably 2-3 hours on him so far. Kind of hard to gauge when doing it in conjunction with other projects.

 

C&C are welcome, encouraged, and appreciated!

Looking good Ub3r. Not sure what goliaths look like in D&D but he reminds me of the uruk hai, especially at the primer stage. Although with the hair and eyes he now kind of resembles a beefed up draugr or white walker.

 They look kinda like this... Huge 8-ft-tall half-giant sorts who have grey skin, sometimes stone-like lithoderms on their skin, and darker grey markings that vary by individual.

Hah, yeah, he does look like a uruk, can also see the white walker as well.

Thank you!  ^_^

 

It's great to be back into it, I'm having fun. I wish I could share the rest, but that's super secret.  ::P:

Yeah, he just turned evil too, gave in totally to his new cursed sentient axe. He's going to be bad-elf!

I just got this mini!!!!!

 

Watching your progress :)

I noticed that in the acquisitions thread. :;):

 

He's kind of a bear to put together, hands connect at the wrists and that front leg is just strange. I did pin/glue hands and used just glue on the leg. After that, I used liquid green stuff to fill tiny gaps and add more strength to the bonds.

 

*watches the barbarian on barbarian action*

 

Hawt huh?  :wub:

Worked on this figure again for a little while last night... well about 2 1/2 - 3 hours... I just can't do speed paints sometimes, I like this figure too dang much!

 

Here, I reworked the skin tones a bit, it was too stark and dark of a contrast. I went over all of it with a few glazes of very thinned down concrete gray and then went back over the highlights with misty gray/concrete gray and finally highlights with misty gray. I think it looks a bit better. I also added more expression to his face with a couple of frown lines between his eyes over the top of his nose.

Here I worked with the metals, the belt is a cold blue iron and so are some spots on his armored boots and his axe head. I went over the areas first with blue liner a few times for a deep dark blue, then I went over that with P3's Pig Iron, then back over it with glazes of thinned down blue liner to darken a bit more, then a few spots with Pig Iron and finally highlight with P3 Platinum (can't recall exact name, but it's very bright). This really makes the metal pop in areas along the edges of weapons and tops of where the light would hit.

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work

       
      Mar 1:  base GS sculpting

      Aug 6:  skin initial highlights

      Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one.  I’ve shied away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon.  
       
      In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon...  oops!  
       


       
      I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown).  I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green.  
       
      For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown.  
       

       

       

       

       
      Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base.  I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it.  
       
      in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. 
       
      Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend.  That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      So for awhile now I've had this goal, nay, this desire, nay, this primal compulsion to build a boat.  It is not enough to have hand drawn maps, or 2D terrain tiles.  I need a fully functioning 3D boat!  Well, maybe not fully functioning.  But I want to build a cool boat!
       
      I've been working on a nautical campaign full of swashbuckling, sailing, and sea monsters for a few years now.  It's my White Whale project.  Always just on the horizon.  It'll happen some day, but in the meantime, I have a million small projects to complete and extend the chase.  One of which is my desire to build a few different sized ships to enliven any possible naval combat.
       
      I actually attempted this about two years ago, just winging it and making some measurements and throwing them at some craft supplies.  I wanted a cheap option that wasn't too difficult to repeat that way I wouldn't be discouraged from making multiple ships.  So I limited it to cheap crafting materials like foamcore, wooden dials, popsicle sticks, and thumbtacks.  And the result wasn't  bad.  Especially for my first attempt at any kind of terrain building.


      It actually turned out rather nice!  To my surprise.  But I got hung up on mast and sail designs and never finished.

      The wood on the deck had 2x1in grid carved into it for easier D&D use.

      and the figurehead was designed to be modular.

      However, overtime the boat collected dust and little scratches.  I should have given it a coat of mod podge or sealant of some kind, but never did.  And eventually it had an unfortunate run in with an injured owl that we took in for a night.

      Here's the little devil himself.
       
      Anyways, I put this project on the back burner for long enough and feel inspired to dive back in.  Especially with a certain Bones ship on the Horizon that I'm still on the fence about getting.  I was doing some browsing on the web and recently found this wonderful little blog complete with loose instructions and a plan from a now defunct wargamming site.  The blog creator had found the old plan and adapted it to build something using most of the same materials I have already stockpiled. 


      There's a few choices that I like better than my first attempt so I think I'm going to use this as some inspiration as I give this boat thing another go.

      My hold up now is still those darn masts.  The original plan above used wood and required drilling out holes for the masts.  The blogger use foam for his ship and found random bits of tubing to house his masts.  I could try to find something random like that, but I was hoping to find something simpler for easy repetition.  And I would also like to keep the masts loose so they can be removed for easy storage, or to swap out the sails.  Any thoughts?

      Any resources, tips, recommendations are very welcome!  I'll post back here with any updates.
