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!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 60142 Golden Guardian I painted for the Pathfinder painting contest. This model was sculpted by Tim Prow. It was the perfect miniature to practice my nmm.

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Working my way through the backlog of minis I need to photograph and post. I was very intimidated by this guy at first, but it turned out to be lots of fun to paint.
       
      C&C welcome.

      Greetings!
       
      Coral Golem from the "Titans Of The Tide" pack in Bones 3.
       
      It was quite tricky trying to determine many of the details on this mini but I got there in the end . Some of them, like the little fish & the sea cucumber were a pleasant surprise!
       

       

       

       

       
       
      There are areas of UV paint on this mini but I'm afraid I can't get very good pics showing it but the following will give some Idea. If anyone knows how to take a successful pic in low light using a UV lamp, pls let me know & I'll give it a go & post pics.
       

       

       
      Thanks for looking!
