CAV Bones - Rach Kraken

Recommended Posts

I received my remaining pledge items yesterday and spent a while with all the models out. The material has worked well on a lot of these.

 

I ended up selecting two with my sons, and under there guidance have painted the Rach Kraken. It just so happens they chose red without any prompting.

 

The model was washed and given a grey undercoat with primer which seems to have worked wonders, next up a dark red was used followed by two highlights. All the paints we mostly GW with some reaper paints used for the matellics.

 

The model was given a full gloss varnish followed by a coat of Matt varnish and the cockpit was recoated with a gloss coat for a reflection.

Some detailing was added but as they are military vehicles I have kept them nice and simple. I do aim to add some transfers at some point once I have designed a full page.

 

Comments welcome and thanks for looking.

I am glad to see you post this. I looked this morning for someone who had painted one of these up and couldn't find any. I did one of mine today, although I don't have photos of it yet. 

 

The colors look great. I like your detailing and I really like the cockpit too. 

 

Such a cool model and you did a great job with it too.

When I first started to paint my Rach force I wasn't going to use red. But when I got the first Dictator on the table the pilot was demanding that I paint his war machine of death bright red. It just seems to fit the Rach models so well.

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.

      It's a cougar!  Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
      It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
      Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail.  I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
      I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
       

       

       

       
      Enjoy!
