Kingdom Death Sci-Fi Twilight Knight Pinup

Recommended Posts

Cleaned, primed and based. Ready for paint! This one should stay SFW, if I do add a tiny bit of color to the forbidden spots, I'll do it at the end of the project :)

I did learn one thing about CMoN's plastic bases, they're not the 'good' model plastic that melts with model cement (as KD's plastic does). So I needed to break out the superglue and will keep fingers crossed she stays put. I may need to pin her if she breaks loose, and I hate pinning high heels! One upside to the failed model cement experiment: I pushed her down pretty hard, so her feet conformed a bit better to the base.

Ugh, the hips on that sculpt. It's fun to paint tho'. I left the cloak off, since I could make it make sense. Looking at yours, kinda wish I'd made more of an effort. Good luck on all the skin blending. :)

That's what's inspiring the palette, actually. Might be a week or two before I get to it, but it should be a wild one.

I love the hips on this one. It's the top half that's messing with me haha!

 

I'm curious to see what colors you come up with ::D:

The size of the hips isn't the problem, it's that the legs are the same length even tho' she's got her right hip jutting out at a coquettish angle. It's just not quite right.

 

I have a couple other KD figures and they look great. There was something about this one that I didn't quite like. 

 

I'm interested to see what colors Cash chooses. I have another copy of this figure, having painted one for a friend. Looking for inspiration.

No, if you follow the pelvic line from GT to GT, the left side is low enough to allow for that. The hips are wide enough to have quite a distance, heh. It's not really as cartoony as people make it out to be.

I was trying to work out a color scheme. I had a decent idea and gamut masked it out, but I wanted to see it in action, so I did a quick mock-up in GIMP using the photo of the primed mini.

Orange is the 3rd point of the gamut mask. Hmm. I like the pink sword (since the glows are all pink), but orange might work, too.

For those confused: this is not a painted mini, I digitally painted it with a small translucent brush in GIMP. Great for quickly looking at colors. If you split layers out (hair is layer 1, clothes layer 2 etc) you can really go nuts once you finish.

 

I'll post some pics of that tomorrow, though I liked how it looked so I stopped layering and dumped most of it into a single layer, woops!

      Presenting Octoberfest Aya, a pair of seasonal themed minis from Kingdom Death. Like all their recent holiday releases you get a large scale pin-up version, and a smaller, not quite so scantily dressed, gaming one.
       
      There's a few issues (painting beer is hard!) and they're both a bit rougher looking in hand, but I'm really happy with them, particularly Big Aya as I don't paint many large scale minis.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Working on something new.
      I don't paint many large scale minis, so thought I'd make a thread.
       

       
      Like all the newer Kingdom Death holiday releases, you get a large display mini and a smaller gaming mini, in this case it's range regular Aya as some sort of adventuring barmaid.
      I made a little start to the larger Aya:-
       

       
      Working on her barrel as it will involve lots of messy drybrushing. So far the barrel has had a basecoat of Parasite Brown/Ochre Yellow, the barrel stand is a base of Parasite Brown/Scarlett Red and the fancy end is Bronze. It then all got a good coat of Brown Wash.

      My love for pulp, and particularly pulp aviators and aviatrices, is well-known. So this cheesecake propaganda pinup poster Sophie had to be. I was very glad indeed to see it back in production. Love everything about this sculpt from hair to boots. But you didn't come here to read; you came for the pictures!

      Morale-boosting appearances for different branches

       
      Plus one for the Kaiju Corps...

       
      and a couple for the brainy boys in the white coats. (Hey, if we're already surfing bombs, might as well go full Strangelove.)

       
      Guest appearances by 80070 and some Artizan Thrilling Tales figs, 50075, some Murch Pulp sailors,  a Nolzur's water elemental, a Pacific Rim action figure, and a repurposed plastic egg. I also replaced Sophie's wings with some smaller wings I had lying around; I have a plan for those larger wings and a larger devil.
       
      Thanks for checking in!

      Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself.

      Presenting Skully, the third member of my Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. She likes skulls and has a pet rock.
       
      I think this is the weakest of the Survivors, it's not a bad mini but it's a bit of an awkward sculpt that doesn't make a whole lot of sense out of context. Was still fun to paint though.
