Opening up a thread for this big bad barbarian. I started on him last night, but forgot to take pics some WIP pics.

 

 

Firstly, I coated all the skin in black primer and then used white primer to pull out the details and pre-highlight.

Next I took Reaper HD Stained Olive and coated all of his skin in it, then took Reaper HD Ruddy Brown and coated over that. These are the pics I forgot to take, but I'll snap them when I get home tonight and add to this thread as I go along. 

 

ETA: I almost forgot, I also did his eyes already and then used brown liner to darken some spots, line where the skin meets leather, and give him a more brooding look.

OH SNAP BRO! This guy is fierce! To say the least. Can't wait to see more of him. 

 

Question (Cause my OCD will not let it go) His sword, is it bent? and/or Not straight? or is that just the camera angle? ::):

Eh, dropped him a couple times, he's a VERY heavy 54mm metal figure, I'll have it straightened out before he's done.

I really like that you base him black then dry brushed some white in the manner you did it. I think I will have to try this style out next time I get the chance.

I like to do it this way on a lot of my barbarians especially since they usually have a darker complexion and moodier feel to them. Both of which are accomplished with colors that are more muted/darker.

Glad to see UB3R switching his axe for a brush again.

Looking fantastic as a start !

Thanks, Jay! Hoping that I can do some work on him in the evenings to de-stress and do something different than my normal 28-32mm stuff. I am enjoying painting him so far, it's amazing how much more detail you can see in the bigger figures, but it also means that errors are much easier to see. A whole different kind of challenge!

Yep! I have had him on the "prepped" shelf for a long time now... and felt like finally painting him up. ::D:

I remember we discussed possibilities for him.

 

Can't wait to see how he will turn out!

Adding midtones. This is a mix of 1:1 (thinned) Reaper MSP HD paints Woodland Brown and Ruddy Brown. I'm about to start layering in and glazing other colors. I want it to look and feel like a Frazetta piece.

C&C are welcomed and appreciated. I'm not yet sure I how I want to base him up so if you've any cool ideas that won't detract from him I'm all ears. ::D:

      I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn.   So he's green.

      Finally got back on to some painting.  It was a minor win, but just basing this dude feels good to be done.  One cool thing i thought was fun is that i put a footprint in the mud under his left foot.  Kind of a small, but cool detail. 
       
      Done.

      Got another one down for the weekend. 

       
       
       
      This time paying special attention to the face and eyes.  @Inarahmentioned to me to lighten things up a little.  So, I took her advice.  I think it turned out for the best!
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Taking way more time around the face this time and really putting a lot of work into leveling up the color step by step with really thin paint worked well.  VMC Burnt Red and VMC Flat Flesh was a good blend together.  I think in the face, I could have added a bit more fare skin, but hey, he's a barbarian.  He's not going for a "best skin" award, he's going for best raging out award.
      *  The bone, leather, fur was a really fun combination to work on. I kept things pretty simple and the variation between all of them were pretty complementary.  
      *  Again using the zenithal highlight really helped features stand out and give me a good starting point. 
      *  Stages: Skin, then leather elements, then accessories, then weapons.  The working method inside to out went great.  
      *  I really like the way the scabbard came out, but I kind of thing it was supposed to be straight up and down and not off to the side, but I hate when it's up and down because it'd be impossible to get the sword out of.  However, the downside is the scabbard has NO detail behind it and it's jutting out, which Ididn't think about when I glued it in place.  Wah wah.
      *  Free hand on the handle.  I added the little black/brown element on the sword handle.  I am pretty happy with that.  I think it's a nice slight add.
       
      Misses:
      *  Loin cloth was a deep red I was trying to lighten up.  I used a light grey, didn't work.  Then I tried white - pink?  Do you think a barbarian is going to wear pink?  "I reckon' you get your broccoli kicked for wearing something like that."  In thinking about it I could have pushed it to orange for the highlight.  Doh!
      *  Eyes - I did them better this time, to @Inarah's point, but I didn't have enough room to get much else in there.  I was also at a points where I knew if I tried to fix it, it was only going to get worse, so I called it where it was.  Meh.
      *  Sword - just a basic steel.  I tried to use a black wash on the bottom side of the blade to give it shading, but you really can't see it on the photo.  It's nothing special, and again, I wish it was more...anything.  It's pretty basic.
       
      I'm reallllly looking forward to putting a base on this one. Needs to be something epic, so this will be a special one.  I'm very, very happy with how this turned out and feel it's a good spot to stop for the weekend.  Yay!
       
      As always - open to feedback and would love your thoughts.

      Monique de Noir 54mm #01444  NMM is not easy and I’m still working on my technique. I COULD have gone with a blue glaze to give it more of a steel look but I didn’t want to I do love the larget models though, easier to handle. TY for the great customer service on this btw, ReaperMini. My original one arrived with have her face higher up, so she looked funny. Customer Service was more than happy to resend it (I did send pics) after they verified the issue wasn’t on this new one. Sorry for the pic quality, I am not great at taking pics.
