So here is my new work in progress thread for Ivan, as I had to give him a soak in Simple green after destroying all the work I had done on his face....

All paints Scale 75 unless otherwise noted...

 

New Pics:

Basically re doing what I had done before, starting with P3 white Primer

Eclipse Grey in the eye sockets, followed by Reaper Spectral White, and Eclipse Grey Pupil.

They are a little off set, but the 'cowl makes it hard to get things straight....

 

Brown Grey base coat, and 1st layer with Rainy Grey

So Ivan got the most accomplished, with RMS Blond Hair and Blond Highlight added, as well as a wash / glaze of Devlin Mud. His fangs also got toughed with VMC Ivory.     This is the first time

Added Thar Brown,then Mojave White...     Comments welcome!   George   I think he is looking better than he was before his bath, myself...

I like the eyes!   in the first pic he is looking straight forward but in the second he is looking off to his left... kinda like he is following the camera!

Thanks!

It is unintended, but it works....

The tutorial in the craft has helped me enormously with doing eyes, now I just need to get them aligned correctly!

This is the first time I am using a Triad like this, so tips tricks comments are welcome!

 

And yes he is a blond vampire. Who says they should all have black hair?

 

(Maybe he bleaches it?)

Lestat is blond, Spike ( William the Bloody) is Bleached Blond so I think it's cool!

He's looking really great - can't wait to see him finished!

 

Can I ask what colours you are doing his robes & armour in?

Not sure yet. the painted pic in the store doesn't show any armor.

It's not going to be black, maybe blue or green. ..

Blue or green sounds good! ::):

Decided to go with BOTH Blue and Green!

 

Innermost and outermost will be Blue, Navy Blue now, Think I am going to have to go darker to Deep Blue for the base....

even though that is only one quick coat....

 

I foresee a lot of error fixing on this guy, as there are so many deep places to get a brush into!

 

I see what you meat about the armor now.... Will likely try for a Brass / Gold look, as that will go well with both Blue and Green.

 

Just a side note, at the New York Renaissance Festival a few years ago, an armorer specializing in brass chainmail showed of a suit that he invited people to hack at with a sword. Stood up darn well, and it was drapped on a stump, so there was no 'give' to soften the blow.

And remember Dorian Hawkmoon's father in law, Count Brass, called for the suit of Brass Plate mail he wore...

 

I think his Rod / Staff will be a dark metal of some sort, with either a stone or bone grip. Yes it would be heavy, but Vampires are supposed to be extraordinarily strong...

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

      I realize it's not the weekend, but the week was quite busy and I'm happy to have got any of this done at all.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      This little wizard's focus for me was going to be brighter colors and trying to do skin and hair better.  I think it came out pretty well.
       
      Wins:
      *  The base color of red tone and highlighting upward to flesh tone seems to be a good mix.  
      *  Keeping to adjacent colors on the color wheel made for a pleasing, eye-catching combo.  I have to say using the reds, oranges, and browns was pretty fun.
      *  I did as much highlighting and avoiding washes as I could.  This has been my practice over the last number of models I've done.  I don't get how the videos show people just splashing it on for amazing results.  I don't get it, can't seem to do it the same, so I resort to taking more time on starting dark and going light.  Much like Dr. Faust's painting videos.  I've learned much from watching him.
      *  Mixing paints is getting better.  I used like colors to lighten and highlight and I'm getting a better balance and understanding of how they may look really different wet, but getting to know how they dry and differs greatly.  
      *  The eyes worked better going in order of black first, white second, black third.  I was doing a white, black, white and it made the eyes look weird.  @Inarah pushed me to try something different and it's been working better.  
      *  The brown hair with little highlights came out good and I'm trying to be very light in my touch to get subtle look versus stark.  Win!
       
      Misses: 
      *  The staff is okay.  I tried to give it like some kind of weathered look or cool effect at the end, but it just didn't sing like I had hoped.
      *  On the back of his cape, there's a part that I tried shading inf that just didn't look believable to the eye.  I tried to hit it a few times to catch the light and how to lighten the edgest, but it was lost on me.  Fail.
      *The skin on his hand held out has a funny look to it up close.  I tried to bring out some of pads of his fingers and palm, but it doesn't look as good as I had hoped.
       
      Overall it's another win, and I'm happy with the results.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.

      Just one more for now.  I recently received a kickstarter which had decal pages for books and scrips.  They were primarily for warhammer but the author made some changes during the kickstarter to make them more system neutral.  I got them and then went looking for a mini to try them on.  I found Lor Gorna first and this was the result.  I liked the mini and i also liked the color i got on his robes and cloak!
       
      And of course his purpose, the book, came out pretty well too!

      My first painted miniature of the year, Darius the Wizard.  Hopefully this will get the ball rolling again!
       
      To be honest I am not generally a fan of plastic minis, I grew up in the days when miniatures were almost exclusively lead or pewter and so maybe I am a little biased, however I got this guy free with a recent order and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the new Bones USA plastic.  It feels solid, and is a lot more rigid than some of the other plastic miniatures I've had in the past, which can often be quite soft or even bendy.  The detail seems much more crisp and sharp too.  I think I may finally be converted to the world of plastic minis!
       
      He was painted in an afternoon, whilst the base was made from Sculpy Clay, using balled up tinfoil to give it the stone like texture.

      Another that started as a WIP.
      I was going for an East Indian skin tone.
      I find this figure curious for a mage, with armor and a spear.  And strange scalloped shapes on her back.  The color washes out the difference between the orange and yellow colors, sadly.
       
      WIP Link below.

      Enjoy.
