OKAY

 

Took Ub3r's suggestion, and did 2 coats of 1 to 10 glaze with Brown Grey on the Death Chicken...

I like what this did, but a couple places may have been too much too fast....

 

Then did a high light on hisself with straight Mars Orange....

Think I am going to block him in more as it will make pic taking a little easier....

 

Keep the comments coming!

Death chicken looks a lot better to me. Just hit those few highlight "spot" highlights of where the light would hit him the most to amp up the contrast a bit tactically.

I really like the orange skin tone on the hobgob.. I've tried to do orange skin but always fall short. Great work.

Thanks!

All I am doing is painting the flesh like any other mini...

The color just happens to start with a dark orange.

I have found that I tend to obsess about the skin on any humanoid, but there really is no difference in the process.

I think we just tend to focus on it...

Just pledged for a Gob....

I know the pic is of a Green skin, but all of my goblins are painted by MM1, so he will be a Mean Tangerine!

I think his mounts name will be 'Forum Mascot'....

 

George

 

 

That is from the KS thread for this mini....

 

The Gob is certainly orange.....

 

***The chicken is giving me serious stink eye and hissing when I say 'Forum Mascot' though....***

So tonight's Pathfinder game helped break my painter's block, and I did a bit of work...

 

I high lighted the saddle and straps with Black Leather, though it is very subtle, don't know how well you can see it in the pics....

And started the metal work here with Victorian Brass...

Those 2 vertical slots in the saddle sides are the attachment points for the tabs on the inside of the Chief's feet...

 

Then started blocking in the metal on the Chief with Black Metal, and the leather straps with Decay Black, as on the saddle..

I think I am pretty much going to reverse the metal colors from the concept art. The Brassy color with steel goes nicely against the green skin, but with my doing him in Orange, I think it will be better to do it steel with brass bits....

Also not sure how much of his armor may or may not be leather instead of metal... Especially the Breast plate and greeves....

Any thoughts?

 

To anyone out there that has this mini and has not started.....

 

DO NOT assemble the Goblin!

 

There are just too many places that the mini gets in the way when trying to paint.

If I were to start him fresh, I would paint him in pieces, and then assemble him. All the places where he goes together are places where skin meets something else, except for his neck.

​The amount of stuff blocked by his helmet is driving me nuts, not to mention the shield and lance!

 

I am seriously considering stripping him, more in the hope that the Simple green will separate the super glue than being upset with the painting....

(Does simple green do that on a resin mini?)

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

So after suffering the indignity of bathing, (in simple green for 3 days)

 

***I will slay you horribly for that....***

 

to try and soften the super glue* binding him together, the result is.....

 

 

NOPE!

 

The paint came of well and I managed to break the lance off at his wrist....

 

It is a clean break, and should be easy to pin... 

 

I will have a bit more access to paint now, but over-all, it was not worth it....

 

 

 

*The super Glue is "Insta-Cure+" and has a purple label and cap.

It is the Gap filling type.

It is sold in partner ship with Hobby Shops, such that the shop gets their name and number on the label, as I have seen this stuff with different labels on it....

InstaCureGapFilling.jpg

 

I found that on a dental supply site!

 

George

 

So back to work on him with primer tomorrow after the pinning...

 

Here he is after his bath....

you can see the hole for the pin in his wrist, and the pin holding the lance will be trimmed to fit...

What alchemical process do you speak of?

 

I am willing to try many things....

Place the mini in the freezer for a while (even overnight) and this sometimes weakens the glue.   Then carefully apply some sheer force to the joint (twisting across the plain of the glue joint) to break it up.  Be careful as I am not sure how brittle the resin will also become when you do this.  Make sure you apply the twist when gripping as close to the joint as possible and be gentle.

 

If you had some leftover sprue to try this one it might be worth it as an experiment.

Can certainly give it a try on some sprue!

Thanks!

I don't know if I'd try that "freezer trick" with a resin figure, you may make that resin even more brittle and break off pieces of it unintentionally, it if was metal, then I'd say give it a shot. At this point, just deal with the figure as is rather than risk completely ruining it.

 

ETA: Also, I think the "freezer trick" works best with normal superglue turning it more brittle and easy to break the bond, not superglue like you are using with the rubberizer added to it.

VERY good plan, let us know the results of your experimentation!

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr
       
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
       
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys.
      Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos.

      On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set.
       

      The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right.
      They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.)
       

      I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway.

      These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well.

      Again, they should have come in a pairs of each.
       

      It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp.

      This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch.

      Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens.

      klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute!  I said the words! I did!
