Presenting the Biocognator Golem from Wolsung, a steampunk robot piloted by a pair of lab mice who are determined to take over the world. There is a WIP thread for it here.

 

Biggest lesson I've learnt painting this one? Don't use Vallejo Gunmetal Blue as a main colour!

There's a nicely detailed mini in there somewhere, but the metallic blue just makes the whole thing too dark when photographed.

As least it looks fairly good in hand.

 

Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.

Love the Animaniacal pilots!  The photos are a bit dark, but I like the look of the golem a lot, and I bet it's great in person (er, in construct?).

Splendid work, but that arm is just too honkin' big. Now I know what it feels like to some people when they walk into a room and one picture on the wall is off level...

Thanks for the comments everyone!

 

Love the little mice.  Any chance some silver highlights will help? 

 

It already has some, plus the arms and legs are mostly silver too, the Gunmetal Blue is just overwhelming everything.

It would probably look a bit better if I had the big arm dragging along the ground like its supposed to, but thanks to a big lump of resin inside the elbow socket it sits too low now.

Where did you get this? It's brilliant! ::o:

 

It's part of the Wolsung line by Micro Arts Studio, I don't think it's had a retail release yet though (I got mine from their Kickstarter).

      Presenting Pigsy, part of the Guild of Harmony faction from the game Twisted.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I was originally a bit worried by all the little details and layers of clothing but it wasn't a problem.

      Presenting the Scarab Mummy, a minion for the Egyptian faction in the game Twisted, he's a mummy that's been redesigned to have a more pleasing beetle theme (which I guess technically makes him more of a Flesh Golem).
       
      Had a lot of fun with this one, I'm still pretty bad at painting gems but I think I'm getting better.

      "Greetings. I hear tell. As some of you in this town. Fancy yourselves Tinkerers."

      Robots in hats are always great. And I've done enough shiny new 'bots for a while. So here's a rusty bucket-of-bolts in a battered bowler! Tried to make any remaining paint look battered and chipped.



      Also, here is M4R1A, clearly a Metropolis reference. But I got an idea in my head and made her into a clockwork angel with watch-part wings and a double halo of glory.

      There was a sale, so I got a sweet robot lady from Bombshell! I painted her gold and silver, "Metropolis"-style. Then I remembered I had some shiny gold chainmail rings, and parlayed those into haloes. 



      BUT IT WASN'T ENOUGH. 
      I used to live in a house whose former occupant was a watchmaker, and he left behind a bunch of stuff neither his heirs (if any) or the landlord cared for, so I am rich in watch parts. While I was digging through the collection for suitable embellishments for Wyrmgear, I came across a bunch of watch hands, and those would be perfect for mechanical feathers. (Side note: I love the little wings on WotC Modrons, but hate that they have bird feathers instead of something more metallic.)


      Gluing them on was a challenge,


      but it got done! Then I found the perfect bit to use as a shoulder joint: 

      And I was able to affix them to that 'backpack' on her back. 

       
      Here she is with some sort of Celestial detector/sceptre/gauge. Glory be!

      Presenting an Android Flower-seller, part of the Servants of the Engine faction in the Twisted game universe.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, although given a second chance I probably would've given her brighter flowers, and luckily you can't see the terrible bit of mold slip going on across her bonnet from this angle.
