77008:Garrick the Bold - Sir Forscale's Bad Day


Recommended Posts

So I finished my Sir Forscale ^_^

He's been quite fun to paint because he doesn't have eyes, which just stress me out... And as I'm terribly grungy at times, I decided to make my dear little knight here nice and grotty too. My extremely makeshift backdrop is still going strong too =P

He's painted with the following: 

GW's Citadel

-Khorne Red

-White Scar

-Leadbelcher

-Nuln Oil

-Seraphim Sepia

-Blood for the Blood God

-Auric Armour

-Runelord Brass

 

and P3

-Thamar Black

-Umbral Umber

-Bloodtracker Brown

-Cold Steel 

 

So eee =] 

I will make another backdrop at some point, or print some, either way, but for the time being, I've only got my dark angsty homemade one. This is also the first time I've tried to really freehand anything - ie, the quadrants on his tabard - so while he's not perfect, I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out. His sword's got a bit of a quirk in it, despite several attempts at boiling him, but what do, it doesn't bother me too much.

Very nice! He indeed looks as though he's been through the grinder, a bit.

 

Thanks ^_^ 

But heehee, indeed - Drifter posted a new brush and a bunch of paints over to me, so I celebrated by trying out as much as I could here.

Your makeshift photo background works very well.

 

Love the blood on this guy! Nice and dribly. Looks like you are putting that brush to good use!

 

Also, I do really like the 2 toned tabard!

 

Looks like you are leveling up your painting quite quickly!

Nice , now you need to paint up some creatures to place him beside.

 

Hopefully I'll get Ebonwrath finished today or tomorrow ^_^ so at least, he'll have a dragon to pester him. I'm planning to do another order quite soon though, and I've got a few beasties I've been eyeing up which'll find their way into that one. 

 

Cheers ^_^

It's helped that I'm expanding my selection of paints with almost every figure at the moment, so I have more options to play with, and I'm worrying less about stuff overall and just enjoying it more. But eee, thank you ever so much!

 

Also, I meant to add...

 

This article really helped me get over my fear of eyes:

Ah yes, I read this the other day - gonna give it a try on my next eye'd mini ^_^

That man has seen some action.  I dig it.

 

I've always been a fan of miniatures that looked worn.  I love the movie Excalibur.  One of the things I love, and there are many, is when all the knights are heading out in search of the Holy Grail and their armor is all polished and shiny and gleaming, just absolutely pristine, but then it cuts to when they've been out there for...well, quite some time, and the armor is all dull and dusty and filthy.  That bit and your mini reminds me of a player from one of my gaming groups who frequenty updated the paint job on his figure.

 

He really went all out.  The first session it was like those knights, all shiny and vibrant and clean.  After a few adventures, he added a dark wash to drab it up and accented the boots and lower fringe of the cloak with muddy brown.  If he took a particularly bad beating in a battle, the next session he'd come back with battle damage: gouging dents in the armor, chipping out bits of the sword and shield, tattering the cloak.  And adding scars to exposed skin and splashing on a bit of blood here and there.  And when he got cool magical gear, he'd start with the mods.  New sword.  New shield.  Fresh cloak.  And if he couldn't patch it, repaint it or mod it, he'd bought multiple copies of the same figure and would just start fresh.  It was a beautiful madness and I've never seen its like again.

 

Anyway, I love the grunge.  Keep those figures dirty!

That sounds actually incredible =] 

I have two minis set aside at the moment (though not at my house, sadly, so I cannae paint them) and they're the lower and higher level forms of one of my Pathfinder characters =] but I love the idea of a mini growing and changing with a character - I may try and do the same, though perhaps to a slightly lesser degree to begin with. 

 

But thank you ^_^ I shall keep on gunking them up, for sure.

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      This is the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Back in the 90s a product of FanPro and nowadays casted by Ral Partha.
      My Kids used this model a lot, so I decided to Paint this next.

      His Mount seemed to be a little small and didnt fit to a grandmaster of a Order of knights. So I Made a Base which should impose a little Hill on the battlefield.

      Presenting Tirinha Fallowheart, a Dreadmere faction mini made by Reaper.
       
      Didn't put much effort into this one, it's a nice mini but I think mine is a bit miscast (her details are a little soft and mushy in places).
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I just wanted to share a Medieval Knight I painted off of MMF. It was my first bust painted and 3D printed. I learned a lot from this bust. I also tried a new technique by priming pink and doing a zenithal highlight in white ink and shadows with dark pink ink. Then going over with yellow ink to finish it off.  I hope you all enjoy as much as I did painting it.

      The third and final big box from Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is full of Batmen from various countries.  Apparently Bruce Wane decided to franchise superheroing like a McDonalds.

      Dark Ranger is the Australian "Batman".  He dresses in white, uses guns and flies around on a jetpack.  Just like Batman...yeah I don't get it.

      Chief Man-of-Bats, of the Dakota territories.  I tried to get his eyes white but it never looked good, so I wound up going black.
