lexomatic's fall 2015 WIP

Recommended Posts

So I've been secretly painting a little, and not updating. I'm planning on doing a little bit more of both going forward.

Currently I'm working on 2/3 of a pack of extra zombies for zombicide, a lot of undead from bones 2 (mostly skeletons, and some ghasts which are just waiting to get varnished at this point. and a few other items I haven't yet decided on - hopefully shelf of shame stuff so I can clear it off, and maybe a few modern pc types. 

 

77159 ghast (#1 yellow cloth)

a few stragglers are missing, and a few I did this summer. The mostly black & white guy is a special project I'll explain in more detail when I get to posting more specifically about that mini

 

Here's a few close-ups of the more finished guys (base coats). Orange and yellow base skin color.

Nice looking zombies you have there.  The one in the jogging suit is genius!  My only contribution is that they're a bit clean for zombies, their clothes I mean (although it could just be the photos).

Dirtification wash... done.

Interesting to note, lonestar leather thinned for a wash (I thought I'd try something a little different) gets really tan, and looks more like coffee ice cream.

We'll see how it looks tomorrow.

Today is a day off, so I'm doing a little work on the last zombicide fatty - doing skintones before I do the mold spores  (planning on adapting Baugi's moss technique)- and I got totally inspired by this thread. I had to start work today on 2 pillars of evil with verdigris. Photos of progress tonight. This will be done tomorrow more or less.

 

Finally, I thought I already posted a link to this show-off thread. More photos tonight of the pics I previously took.

 

I might also post of layout photo of inspiration for a home made temple-y structure that I'm tentatively calling "In the court of the skeleton king" or something.

Here are starting pics of the pillars.

 

 

Some blue liner thinned with aircraft medium

And one with the verdigris added (they are now both covered)

I'll see about another coat of verdigris at 6 and then a sepia wash later.

Probably drybrush the bronze tomorrow.

Should I go for more bronze? I'm going to touch up the skulls for sure, but unless someone thinks I need more metal, these are done.

I decided to add a bit of antique gold to spice things up a bit. That's it until the show-off thread.

I also did some more skin shading / darkening eye sockets of my remaining zombicide mini.

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.

      Painted to match my Warhammer Vampire army, using old Citadel Foundation paints and a lot of Agrax Earthshade wash

      Following a couple trials to print these (really I was looking for things to print with the clear green resin and Necrons sprung to mind) I managed to get a good set of 6 printed up. Then the idea skittered across my brain that I should put a light in them...
       
      So I have started painting them in the stereotypical dark+metal+green and picked up a small box of LEDs along with a coupe switches. 


      Here’s the group shot. 
       

      A bit of Reaper Coal Black and some Vallejo Copper.  They need at least another coat.  
       
      Test with a green LED held inside. 

       
      Once they get a bit more paint on them, I’ll build up some bases to hide the following bits in them. 

       
      Hoping to get another coat of paint on them later tonight along with the start of some edge highlights, but I’m solo-parenting so we’ll see how the evening goes.
      For now, it’s time to take the kids to their music lessons.  
       
      Thanks for looking.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic
