Dark Paints the Dwarf Statue of Ancient Times

Recommended Posts

This was sculpted by Admiral over at Chaos Dwarfs online (he's ebaying copies in the event anyone is interested).  This is on a 40mm base, and is the "fire" version.  The other version is dismembering a goblin (not my thing, but both sets come with the Golem).  This was a "speed" paint, taking only about 5 hours, including the glow effect.  I could push it further, but I stopped when I thought it looked right to my eye.  The base is 40mm using cork with a Happy Seppuku base over it into Procreate.  The lava is liquitex matte medium layered until the base texture was less visible.

 

The white dots on the staff and that show up on the arm are not there in real life, not sure what the camera was doing, but otherwise this is exact to real life.

Very cool! I like the lighting effects; and the idea of a statue that is a flame conduit is pretty nifty! I really like it, and may have to try something like that...

Given that Hashut is the god of Fire and Darkness, and the dwarves' natural affinity for stone, I thought this very fitting.  And please, do try that.  I've been following your blog and your bones blog for a while now and I think you could pull it off very nicely!

Since you seem to like the Big Hat style Chaos Dwarfs...

Actually, Xherman, I have found them already (I have 20 more to paint, per goblin math).  The chaos dwarves I painted before come from the Dwarves of Fire Canyon line.  They are really nice sculpts, and Rozmax has really done a great job on them.

Cool!

 

I had seen that post, but didn't realise these were from that line...

 

So they really fit in well...

With the right paint job, they do.  They have a lot in common with the Forge World ones, it's just that they have hats rather than masks and more variety to their equipment (thank goodness!).

 

They fit in well either as they are with the classic line (although the poses do present some challenges when it comes to lining them up in ranks).

Very nicely painted!

I like the 'statue that is also a flamethrower' idea quite a bit; good call on that one!

      Greetings!
       
      I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
       
      The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
       
      I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Hi everyone, it's been some time. It's been hard for me to find some time to paint lately. I'm working on my Cat Critter display base as much as I can, a little every night. So, I thought some of you might like to see part of my progress. Here are part of the statues and "collapsed" pillars that will be decorating the display diorama.
       
      The lions are Reaper Miniatures 77341, sculpted by Geoff Valley. The collapsed pillars are 72591, Wizkids. I cut them to separate the blocs and painted them in white marble colors. There are veins of quartz and gold in the marble. As you can see, I glued the lions tail on their back to make them look more like statues. The lions are mounted on 74012, 25 x 50mm cavalry base.

      This is Bones Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai.
      I found his details a bit crude and decided to paint it as a statue for my Nippon Project.
       
      Speed Paint with the Reaper Stone Triad.
      Scale 75 Decayed Metal, P3 Molten Bronze and Vallejo Verdigris.
       
      WIP here:

      There is a legend that deep in the woods around Kyoto there stands a statue of one of Nippon's greatest warriors.
      If one would find it and paid respect to it the statue might bestow luck on that person.
      It is also believed that when the Empire is in dire need, the statue will come to life to fight once more to protect Nippon.

      I picked up an airbrush kit on sale back in November. It came with two brushes, a compressor, and some other stuff.
       
      Here is a picture:

       
      The brush that I have been using mostly so far is the Badger Patriot 105. I say mostly because I have sprayed paint through it more than once, lol. I started with the bottom fed one (the 350) for one sitting of like 30 minutes, then tried another sitting with the 105 for like 30 minutes.
       
      I have since used the 105 for something like three sittings of 30-60 minutes. My total airbrush experience is something like 2.5 hours plus another 1.5 hours of cleaning and practice assembly.
       
      I have primarily just tried primers. The latest attempt has been applying Vallejo Surface Primer (black) to some of the graveyard set, namely the crypt and the fencing.
       
      Here are those results (minus a rogue golem arm that missed being airbrushed until I cleaned up and was later brushed with the same color in order to prevent having to clean the airbrush for one piece):

       
      I am thinking that I might try and use my Dwarven Forge paints to make this match the Dungeon terrain I have, but am not sure yet...and if I do go that route, would it be better to go with my typical dry rush route or should I be trying to apply colors on top of this with the airbrush? Or is there a different approach that I should be taking?
