Narthrax the Bronze/Gold/ Copper/Otherwise Shiny WIP


Recommended Posts

I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread.

 

So this is where I'm at =]

Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P

Update time =D

I popped some basing stuff on the shiny one today, because he was bugging me and it's mighty hot here at the moment.

So he's got a nice little collection of bits of vegetation going on there. I may yet also give him a little gold pile, I'm not sure.

 

However, his paintjob...

I used some Agrax Earthshade on the topsides of his wings to tone them down a little, then brushed a tiny bit of Auric Armor back on to stop them being too dull.

Metallics are always a pain in the arse to photograph......

 

There is likely some super expensive filter to put on a super expensive camera to make it super easy but I am not spending super amounts of money for that kind of stufff.....

>.<

 

I have a polariser around somewhere... If I can find it, I may give that a go on my proper camera. He's big enough to shoot on it, at any rate - I struggle with shooting the little guys on my DSLR, so pretty much everything ends up being a phone job instead because that does a better job of focusing close and stuff.

So I tried photographing this SOB again today, using my SLR... Not sure where my polariser is atm, so just shooting with a plain old UV filter.

I lack proper lights, so I end up shooting on low elf aperture, which means obviously.... Shallow DOF. I also need bigger backdrops to shoot him against >.< I only have A4 ones.

 

You can at least see his colours slightly better in this one xD 

When I can get photographing him nailed down, I'm starting to become inclined to call him finished ^^;

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

      ... is how I start each session of my Curse of Strahd campaign, before recounting my player's disastrous choices and whatever wicked thing I threw at them last time as a result.
       
      Although we play our game online and the campaign is drawing to a close, I decided to immortalise these characters in miniature form. I was planning to paint a Strahd for them to fight, but then, uhhh, while I was cutting the figure from the sprue, its head flew into the office and hasn't been seen since.

      Of course, I should have known, he's a vampire, he can change shape and move through walls. I'll never find him.

      But will this party be able to defeat him in our next session? Fingers crossed!
       
       
       
      First off - the party's secretive and somewhat paranoid rogue who goes by "Hope". Out of a traumatic fear of magic users, she dislikes being healed and shaves her head to avoid anyone scrying on her. I decided to pick Serena, Dreadmere Rogue (03873) to represent her, opting for a cloak rather than a bald head.
       
        

      Then, the party's warlock. Ira was an aspiring actor and playwright who made an arrangement with a local lawyer to benefit his career and learn a little bit of a magic. A whirlwind romance turned into a longterm relationship, but when his patron actually proposed to get married, Ira ran off on an adventure. Commitment issues, you know? But at least he has a magical book that allows him to communicate his regrets and learn new spells from his fiendish boyfriend...

      I struggled a bit to find a figure that matched the "Victorian dandy" aesthetic. No staffs or wands, but no guns or playing cards either. I was in the dark a bit, so I decided to modify Drake Whiteraven (03599), using the book that comes with Khalib, Runelord Apprentice (60098), and fashioning a dagger out of bits. Not the best 'kitbash', but it does the job.

       

      The party's druid is Mikal - a half-elf and the oldest member of the group. Though he started off as a loner and a hermit tending to nature, when strange creatures began emerging from sudden mist banks, he had to go take a closer look. Perhaps the real Curse of Strahd was the friends he made along the way.

      This figure is Vodelis Winterhand (04009), who I believe was a freebie sometimes last year. I modified the staff to be a spear (a magical item found in Barovia!)
       

      Finally, the party's cleric - Petrus. Many things in Barovia would challenge a man's faith, but Petrus has come out of it stronger and even more pious than before. 

      This is not a Reaper figure, but a sculpt from Mierce Miniatures. The scale on this one was much finer and the figure itself was obviously shorter, sculpted with more realistic proportions. I decided to place him on a rock to make him appear taller, but of course, that only made him look like he was compensating for something. (He is.)

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.
