Yet Another Archer; A Kobold; A Tank; and some Fighter Plane Tokens

The archer is another one to go with some of the previous bowmen. I hope to get a small painted unit of them by the time this is over. He is an old GW plastic.

This guy just sorta got slopped with what ever color was left over after painting some of the other things. He was the use up the  paint miniature. I think his legs are haldardier tabard red from last month's batch of halberd guys. Boots are kobold basecoat brown.

 

The Kobold is a bonesium version, white plastic, 77010.

I mixed faded purple with some lighter color —fire orange maybe— to get the brown for his basecoat. It did not cover the archer's shoes very well. Later he got drowned in brown liner. The tip of his spear is the same copper that was used to damp brush highlights onto the tank.

 

The tank and the fighter tokens are 1:1200 scale resin models from Spartan Games.

The basecoat on the tank is kolbold basecoat brown with a lot of brown liner mixed in because it wanted to dry out too soon. Later some pure brown liner got shoved into the deep places and kinda blended in. Then bronzey highlights.

 

The airplane tokens are responsible for the archer's dingy blue tunic. First paint on them was Black Ink on the edges. Then they got a top coat of Sky Blue, avoiding the tops of the planes (archer got the left overs). Then the then planes got dabbed with metallic either silver or bronze. Then the edges got some silver to pick out the girder work. The final step was to wash them with Blue Liner. I was trying to get some edging and shadows under the planes. I needed to experiment on some of these. I have boat loads of these for the  game they are from.

      I found this little jeep at the grocery store. Since it was roughly the right size I chopped up a bones kobold to drive it. And piled some food, a crystal and a duck in the back.

      It was not bad, but I didn't really like the sword, since my goal was joyride mayhem as opposed to fighting. So I gave it a mug instead. 

      I also gave him a little lizard pal hanging on the outside. 

      So that's cool, but I want to make it sillier still before I paint it. 
      Currently thinking of sticking a bag of golf clubs and maybe some other kobold loot on the jeep.

      Wear and tear is usually a welcome addition to most vehicle models. After all, tank armor is made to take a few hits.
      One of the things to keep in mind when painting something like that is the story it tells. Where and how you place it tells of how the damage happened. Rusty areas are older than shining metal showing through- moreso if there are streaks of rust leading down. A combination of rust and metal shows that this is a place where the rust layer gets scrapped off.
      This vehicle is from Seedy Tea Publishing‘s Simulacrum Protocol line.

      As seen in the WIP section (thanks for all who helped me out). I thought I'd pop her here as no one else seems to have painted her. 
       
      (Note that the enlarged elf ears and the base / mushrooms are my own additions)

      Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.
