Infamy One Shot #1 (Hob)Goblin Chieftain

Recommended Posts

Loving what you did so far.  Its a shame about the glue though on the hobgoblin.  I was thinking of how much he looks like he's a jockey and thought it would be funny to see him painted  up as one - maybe with two or three sponsor marks on him/his shield.  ::D:

If he came in a multi pack, I would likely do that as a joke, but as it is...

 

He got re primed tonight...

 

and the Death Chicken got a mouthful of diluted GW Red Ink....

OK now that the SCIENCE! is over, paint!

 

The Hobgoblin's skin is almost back to where it was, with the base coat of Kalahari Orange, followed by a 50% mix of Kalahari and Mars Oranges, and then a layer of pure Mars Orange.

 

The eyes were lined with GW Scorched Brown, the whites with a white on the palette, then Marduk Yellow over that with MSP Blue Liner pupils:

The Death Chicken's saddle and straps were done with a layer of 50% Black and Brown Leathers, (Missed the vertical front part of the saddle...

The metalwork got a highlight with GW Shining Gold, then a wash of Agrax Earthshade.

The mouth got some dilute Red ink.

The Teeth and claws were done with Iroku, then Thar Brown, Followed with the Agrax...

Then they both got Dullcoted in case of later glitches... (A virtual surety!)

MOAR PAINT!

 

The goblin got another coat of straight Mars Orange, no pics....

 

The Death Chicken got Thar Brown, then Mojave White applied to his teeth and claws.

His tongue got some pink flesh high lights.

I tried to paint the scratch marks and other distressed marks in the leather using a mix of Black Leather, Red Leather, and Pink Flesh...

Not sure how well that came out, I think I need a 'paler' color to show the cuts and scratches in the leather. I have to assume that the leather was dyed black, and that the center will be a more flesh tone for the scratches and edge cuts....

I think it made a pretty good color for the scar in its neck as well...

That needs to be glazed back a bit though....

As I have been painting this mini, the 'claws' on the forward parts of his wings have looked odd...

I think that I finally realized that they are not claws!

They are What is left of the long 'finger' bone that should be supporting another web of wing! I guess the outer part made the bird to ungainly on the ground, and may be part of 'clipping' the things wings during it's war training so that it couldn't fly away and needed to develop its legs...

 

That's my story anyway!

 

Comments welcome!

Tonight was the goblins turn, in the little time I had...

 

Mixed Tenere Yellow with Mars Orange 50% for a high light layer, and then all the skin got glazed with a 50% mix of Kalahari Orange and Mars Orange, cut 1-10 paint to medium/water mix.

Got to go finish packing for paint day...

Another glaze on the Gob's skin, and I started trying to distress the saddle and cinches with Irouku, and agrax...

And every time I look at him from the front (And the rear) I think of Esther Williams because of the shape and unpainted state of his hat...

Thanks, O Wizard most Mild!

 

First painting in 2 days, :down:  little too much real life and needed to get the BOGW on the road...

 

So I did his leather straps in Decay Black, and after really studying the pics and mini, the back parts of his chest armor as well as parts of the greaves. These will match up with the saddle and straps on the Death Chicken...

 

The armor and shield then got some Thrash Metal, mixed with a tiny bit of Inktensity Black. I think I didn't shake the Thrash enough, because it was very thin...

Need to go look at MMI for more info on Hobgoblin colors for his loin cloth...

 

The reins and 'stirrups' will be likely a pale grey / off white, as they are made of rope.

I am open to other suggestions though...

 

Other comments and Critiques welcome!

I also need to start thinking about what kind of base to do... It came with a plain 2" round base...

So got some work done after I shut off the laptop....

 

Looked in MMI and found Hobgoblins like 'Bloody Colors', so I decided to do his loin cloth in red. I am going to try to keep it a bit purplish, so it doesn't clash to badly with his skin. I used Scale 75 Sunset Purple.

Also touched up the Decay Black, and did his belt and the bag on the right side of his belt.

Finding lots of little details as I go.

There is a little bird skull right next to the bag on his leg, for example...

I mixed some Scale 75 Rainy Grey and Brown Grey and tried to do some high lights on the Death Chicken. (Have to ask Infamy if the thing has a name!)

I took a top down view pic of the mini before I started, and converted to B&W to try and get a sense of what needed to be done...

and after B&W

post-14271-0-56870200-1463632119_thumb.jpg

 

I think I am going to need more Rainy Grey, or maybe an off white to lighten the color some moar...

I also mixed a little of the Sunset Purple with the greys and went around the scar on the left breast..

 

then Dullcote over all...

 

(Have to fix his right elbow to...)

Working on Death Chicken rider as well...

 

His armor got a wash of Didi's Black Magic Ink, cut with water and Future,

 

All the Black leather got some MSP Drow Elf Shadow, and Drow Elf Skin.

 

The rope stirrups and reins got more Thar Brown.

 

Started on the lance with Black Metal, and several washes of Scale 75 Walnut.

 

Nothing on the mount tonight....

Purple is a good colour on him. He must have Buglips' wardrobe consultant.

I was thinking the same thing.

      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.
