I got at least one request to do a work in progress for my next model........so here I am :)

Not sure how I feel about WIP posting. I sort of like the surprise of seeing a mini for the first time posted finished.

We shall see what happens.

 

...and yes, that is a robotic thumb I have.

some of my implants may be called cheating by some, but I say there is no crying in miniature painting! Get your own robotic appendages.

Based skin and some shadowing. My eyes are having trouble seeing where skin ends and cloth begins. This is not going to be an easy mini.

My own wash concoction. Happy with the experiment, exactly what I wanted which rarely happens.

painting the bandages and started on some metals. Usually colors are easy for me, but the painted mini I was looking at for reference has relatively the same colors I would have gone with. Sooooo...trying to picture some other scheme in my head since I don't want a copy of what was already done.

Either I have a master plan or I am avoiding certain areas that I don't want to paint yet. Not sure about the metallic purple armor trim either.

I know the purple armor trim on the leg has got to go. Still not sure about the shoulders, I kinda like it. On his back, the purple brings out the eye of Horus design nicely.

Things don't always go as planned. I spent a lot of time painting that weapon and just could not get what I wanted. I like it as gold more. At leas you get to see what might have been.

After that I'm Almost there. The sash up front and tied around his waist. Some touching up, sealing and then it will be on to painting up a nice base.

Finished Painting the model, time to work on a base. Oh man, at the foot of the stairs!

Big blob of putty with some freehand sculpting, some recycled stands made into stairs (which I am a little regretting clipping his, because I could have jammed them into the putty instead of using other items to keep him steady while the glue and putty did their trick) and some rocks glued on.

a few more steps and I should it should be complete.

**** Gets tea and biscuits, sets himself down on the couch to follow this***

 

As soon as you add colour, take a pic with a more neutral background, all those bottles are distracting from the mini.

Although it IS a nice collection of paint!

 

Can't wait to see how you tackle this one. I love the Undead.

Maybe try taking some close up pics of the areas you are not sure of? Or using your photo editor to crop and expand those areas?

 

I have started doing this when I am not sure about certain details....

 

Also look for other people's paint jobs to see what they did, I find this helpful as well...

You can also type the name of the figure into google, and search the images. I have done this for things that I can't find on these forums.

Imagine my surprise when I found some of my own WiP pics come up!

Google search is actually the first thing I always do before painting minis.

 

I try to get a good look at the details, and it helps picking out a colourscheme . basing ideas etc.

Its hard for me to see too much due to the size of the picture, but overall, I don't think the purple leg armor needs to go as it ties in with the shoulder armor.

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
       
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
       
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
       
      Then I added:

      Statuesque's Pulp Alley line is going away forever, but when I saw this figure I knew it was non-negotiable! There's a recurring character in my Weird West games, a yuan-ti pureblood and snake cultist called Doctor Apophis. I had been using the Deadlands Noir Houngan mini for this, but hoo boy.

      The serpentine features, from the smoothed-out ears to the wide-set eyes and fangs! The precision-incised hieroglyphs! 

      Click for turnaround: 


      "Farouk, can it be true? Did the ritual succeed?!"
      "Your doubt wounds me, Hassan; have you known me to fail in the past?"


      <INDEED, I LIVE AGAIN.>


      <IS IT NOT WRITTEN ON MY FLESH THAT I SHOULD RETURN? IN IMPERISHABLE WORDS OF THE HIERATIC SCRIPT THAT WILL OUTLAST THE HATED SUN.>


      <THOUGH YOU ARE BUT DOGS AND JACKALS, YET YOU WILL SERVE IN THE COMING NIGHT.>
      "Aziz, what does he say? I am unfamiliar with this dialect." 
      "He...he says he is very pleased to meet you and looks forward to working with you, O Farouk!"


      (We've seen Aziz and Farouk before.)

      Finished the Bones Version of the Avatar of Thoth.
      Sculptes a bit of ruins with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin.
       
      Thoth is often depicted as an Ibis, I choose the Red Ibis as inspiration.
