06115 Dwarf Shield Maiden

Recommended Posts

It seems on the back of her right arm, the highlight lands at a different place on the steel than it does on the gold. It may be just the angle of the photo.

 

But she's definitely well painted. Much better than I could have done. Eyes and skin are lovely.

First, this is a very nicely painted figure.  It might be a personal choice in my painting on NMM, but the top left at the shield point read wrong.  Sharp edges with NMM tend to have one bright side catching the light and a dark side contrasting increasing the brightness.  I'm still struggling with NMM myself.  I think overall you did a great job and the metal armor and hammer are wonderful.  The second photo reads as shiny armor to me.

I got the same bead as Silver, regarding the Rear shield. If we're wrong, maybe you could plant a red dot on the picture(s) to show light source?

 

That said, how are you people doing these irises?! What sorcery? What voodoo? I can spare a chicken or forsaken child.

I couldn't do NMM if you paid me for it..( I could try..but it wouldn't be pretty).

 

I love the mini, maybe there are a few minor mistakes in the shadows/highlights on the NMM but I just see a very good painted mini.

The Hammer is awesome and I love the eyes.

I can't critique, cause I have never even come close to getting nmm that good. Awesome job.

 

Non sense! With practice anyone can come up with that and you can too!. But thank you very much for your comment!

Thank you both for your comment! I really appreciated it.  

 

By the way Algorath, the eyes of this mini is HUGE. So getting details in there was not hard. Usually I cant paint eyes like this. So sadly no voodoo. :down:

I am sure you can. I have seen many of your work. With practice and a community that tells you whats wrong and where to improve you will be surprised how fast you can improve.

 

Sorry no critiques here.  Your shading/Highlighting skills are very impressive.  Well done.

 

Thanks for your comment!

 

She looks great!

 

Thanks!

Thank you! I just tried my best.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Thrym Project  :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend.
       
      Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk.  As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere.
       

      I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far.  I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis.
       
      Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull.  An ironic happenstance, given the character's name.
       
      Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club.  This is not something unusual so far.  The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby.  Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness.  He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin.
       

       
      So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead.  His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse.
       
      I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better.  The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel.  I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig.
       
      For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin.  The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash.  I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well.  The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again.
       

       

       
      For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof.  The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head.
       
      His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it.
       
      Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit.  I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. 
       
      More work to come soon.
       
      Stay Tuned and Safe.  Enjoy.

      Hello everyone, I completed this Dark Dwarf today. I really enjoy painting these Duergar models. They remind me of the D&D Forge of Fury adventure module.
      This one is the Irontongue Priest sku 03883. It was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
