Ever since I first saw this mini I have wanted to try my hand at painting it.

AS usual, I will ignore what colors they have used in the original only view of the mini.

I want something different, and I have a few ideas about how I want to base the Hawkman already.

Just priming, and putting the coat of brown liner on it was a terrific intro into what can be done with this one.

Love the folds (thinking rich shadows, and great highlights).  That Hawks head.. hmmm... its a birds head to me,

though at least a Raptor.  This is going to be a fun bumpy ride.. Yee-Hah !!!

 

Here is what he looks like to begin with.

I'll be watching this one with great interest as he's one of the first Darksword miniatures that I saw that I immediately wanted to paint.

He would be good as a Jedi. :D May have to pick this one up and do that. 

 

Jay, what type of raptor are you planning on painting him as? 

Haven't made that decision yet.  Bald Eagle, Black Eagle, Golden Eagle, however; considering all the magnificently colored birds out there,

I could just find an interesting Budgie, and paint him that way.  So time to sit down with my book of North American Birds !  This Mini looks like

it is going to be a ton of fun !

Has been a rather productive morning.  I've narrowed down the Raptors to two hawks. 

I just want to see how the color scheme on robes is going to work out to decide which of them to do.

I've ruled out the Eagles.

I decided to do the robes in Red, the cloak in Green.  Which gave me a bit of a surprise.  I'm using two complimentary colors

with each other.  If I paint the red shadow first, I can just put a dark layer of green down to give my red shadows a lot of depth; and the Green can be my dark green for my green shadows (or I can mix some red in with the green for the same result) !

So I've been playing for over an hour.

Here he is with a bit of color tossed in to the mix.

Thanks Arc.

I REALLY am getting into the "brooding" sinister look of the mini, plus it is soooo dynamic.

This is going to be a fun paint, I can feel it already !

  • New Season of Hawkman: "I have come to kill the one they call Hawkman" "Then you have come to the wrong place for I am Hawkman and I am the enemy of thy enemy. None shall defeat me" 

Is he a villain or the villain of villains. Watch to find out, this Fall!

 

 

::P: I"m looking forward to seeing what you do with it Mr. Jason.

I don't personally like to paint anthro figures, but I do like to see others paint them up for their own pleasure, so it's always fun to see you paint these up Jay!

Do you not use primer on your minis? That would help a lot for your paint coverage. Then you can use thinner layers to build up your colors. :)

I use primer on my miniatures, and put down a coat of brown liner. 

Uh.. Darius, if you go to the top of this page,  you will see a bunch of tags about this mini..

Click on Jasonator, and it will give you a list of all the mini's I have painted.

The tabs are a great tool to learn about.  I use them on my miniatures all the time.

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
