Geirahod, The Spear of Battle (Bombshell Minis 10016)


Recommended Posts

Since I want to bring a Bombshell mini to Reapercon, and Glacia isn't movin' my Mojo atm, I started on Geirahod...

 

Eyes are GW Scorched Brown, MSP Linen White, and Scale 75 Tesla Blue

Skin is Arabic Shadow, which seems to be my new favorite skin tone base coat....

Got the Blues in her eyes with one try.....

(Will never happen again...)

 

I found it interesting that the details of her face don't show up well in the pic on the Bombshell site...

They look very soft in that pic, to me anyway...

Black metal on the armor, helmet, spear head and sword hilt and pommel. I realized that they are there between her body and left arm....

 

Skin was done with a 50% mix of Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh.

 

comments welcome!

Off to a great start, George!

 

Looks like you've done some highlighting on the arms and hands, but are lacking that highlighting on the face.

 

The metal is flat and is kind of boring. Depending on what you're going for, I'd shade it, especially on the lower part of the torso.

Looks to me like he's only on base coats so far and hasn't started his highlighting and shading as of yet. But I could be wrong as I'm looking at it on my iPhone.

Yeah, I wasn't sure except it looks like there's highlighting done on the arms and hands. Pictures of miniatures are difficult!

Thanks all!

 

Early days yet...

 

Very first layer added to skin only, metal just first base coat. ..

 

If I don't keep a WiP, I have no painting log....

Can't seem to keep a paper one...

So some work whilst the mojo is here...

 

Worked on her skin...

Basic Flesh, 50% Basic Flesh and Golden Skin, Golden Skin, 50% Golden Skin and Light Skin, then a couple of glazes of Golden Skin and Basic Flesh (3-2)

Thing I am going to need to glaze in some shadows....

 

50% mix of Black and Brown Leather for the trim on the mail.

 

So since I need to do the space between her left arm and her body, the inside of the fur got Birch, then 50% Birch and White Sands, then White Sands.

      Bombshell miniatures Sister Sergeant Maelee (aka "Heresy" Maelee) is all primed up and ready for color.  This is their Con Exclusive version of Maelee, released at ReaperCon.  "Heresy" is from some gatekeeping twit on Instagram who declared  "This figure is Heresy!".  It made me laugh so, that's my nickname for her.

      We are very excited to be able to come back and participate at ReaperCon again this year!
      There are a ton of new releases that will be in-stock at the show and a couple of other special items.
       

       
      Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2021 Golden Maelee Award. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. All entries will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Bombshell Dog Tag depending on the level of painting and presentation of each entry. The brand new, larger, Golden Maelee trophies will be awarded to the top three paint jobs (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) depending on the number of entries.

      Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, KritterKins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill.
       
      Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible for the Golden Maelee Trophy at this time, they may still receive Dog Tag awards.
       
      BADGE RIBBONS
      We have some new ribbons. Come by our booth and receive our Bombshell ribbon for your visit.
      You may receive one of the other themed ribbons depending on your purchase.

       
      THE RESIN VAT
      This year we will be offering seconds and mis-cast resin parts for sale by weight. Just scoop out what you want and we'll weigh it at check-out.
      Although these castings didn't pass muster, you may find a gem that is just right for that conversion or terrain project down the line.

       
      COUNTERBLAST FOR SAVAGE WORLDS
      Over the past year we have been working on creating a setting book of our Counterblast game for the Savage Worlds RPG.
      Come by our booth and get the details to sit in on a couple of impromptu RPG preview sessions during the con.
      There may even be freebies involved!

       
      We are super excited to visit with all of you again and we're looking forward to see what you've been painting!
      Patrick & Vicky

      It would be nice to think about cyberpunk utopias, but somehow those just don't grip the popular imagination. Instead it's always overcast or raining, the sky is brocced, corporations own everything and everyone and surveillance is ubiquitous. There's money to be had, but barely enough to buy noodles unless you're connected...or willing to ignore corporate law.
       
      Devo Ranks eats the *fancy* noodles every day. They have Skillz.

      Click for more angles.
       
      Hacking into a Public Service Panopticon? CHILD'S PLAY. 

       

       
      If you need muscle? Devo Knows A Guy. Or lady, really.

       
      Don't worry, Dez! Those cameras are showing nothing but innocuous looped footage now.
       

       
      No one pays the cleaners enough in the cyberpunk dystopian future. 
       

       
      I won't pretend to understand what kind of cyber-heist these three are conducting. 

       

       
      But you can be sure they have made Powerful Enemies, as well as enough credits to afford the FANCY noodles for the rest of the year!

       
      Devo is a fun one. Gender-ambiguous and tech-savvy. Because cyberpunk is inextricable from the late 80s and early 90s, I gave Devo the most day-glo Nickelodeon counterculture wardrobe I could think of. Dez from Bombshell we have seen before, in the post-apocalyptic Radlands, as well as the little sniper from Crooked Dice. 
       
      The Public Service Panopticonnouncer was made from  SD card placeholders and chunks of expired credit card, along with I think a vape component. The text, like much of the signage on the building, comes from a beer can label artfully chopped into pieces and rearranged into vaguely menacing advertisements. Also some sprue and all the camera-looking Bitz and Gunz in my Bitz Box. 
       
      I don't have any cyberpunk setting or games planned, but I can feel the itch growing. C&C welcome.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      A warrior woman of the wastelands, the mohawked Dez is a formidable figure. Where does she even get hair color and makeup in the Irradiated Zones? She's not telling, other than to say "If it was easy, I'd send a man to do it." Also, she's a deadly shot with a wrist crossbow. 

       
      More pix:
       
       
      Here she is with a few of her pals (Wasteland Maelee, also Bombshell, and a Crooked Dice survivor).

      More than a match for the average mutant horror.
       

       
      and a credible threat even to above-average horrors!
