77059: Orc Berserker (Two Handed Sword)

Recommended Posts

Well done!

 

I like the skin, higlights and shadows are in place.

Good brush control!

 

You did eyes! And very well too!

 

I would wash that armor with a black wash to blend the colours some more on that.

The dark spots are a bit harsh now.

 

All in all a good job!

 

And my 20th mini was not as good as this one..

Thanks! Will give the wash a try!

I like it. The lack of blending on the armor gives it a very cell-shaded, comic-book look. Stylistically, the armor works. I think the issue is that the style is not carried out across the whole model. The armor has cell shading, but the skin is more layered.

That's a really good observation, thanks! I did the armor first and then the skin, and knew something was off, but couldn't pinpoint it. I wonder if the same "cell-shading" technique would work for skin too. Maybe I found my personal style - gotta check out some comics for inspiration! :)

I think that is a very clean paint job that looks much better than a quick Table Top job. I don't think the NMM works as it is, but it does work as a cell shaded look. You ca achieve some very good results with metallic paints and controlled washes or, as you write, you can go for a general comic book look with clean lines and black or brown lining.

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated! :)

      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, I completed this model last night. 14124 Kevis the Overlords Mage was sculpted by Chaz Elliott. This guy will be an evil evoker NPC in a campaign I'll be running.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.

      Another tabletop lady - tried stronger source lighting and focused on trying to smoothly blend the very pale skin. Also managed to make a reasonable base with the greenstuff roller this time  - so overall happy to try these things out on her, including the flowers.

      Well, I'm back in lockdown. Full, nothing open, don't leave your house, furloughed lockdown. Fortunately, Reaper have started the Reaper Challenge League, which coincides nicely with me having a lot of extra painting time. I'm already in a duo and trio for the league with @Thoramel, @Pochiand @Evilhalfling, but the Fire or Ice category really intrigued me. I love doing fire dragons so I almost started on Narthrax, but then I remembered that I've got a Roc from Bones 4 that I'd always wanted to do as a phoenix. So why not kill two birds with one stone(or roc)?
       
      I'd forgotten just how big this 'mini' was  that's a 1cm grid on the cutting mat.
       

       
      Nevertheless, I started under the watchful eye of my painting assistant
       

       
      First up, a decent coat of Pure Black

       
      Onto the horror, picking out the details with Garnet Red. This took forever, and almost broke one of my old brushes.

       
      I started brightening the feathers with Brilliant Red, you can see how much difference it makes in the lower wing.

       
      ....and both upper wings are highlighted. All I have to do now is apply the red to the undersides of the wings, body and head of the birdie. Shouldn't take too long!
       
      I may have started on Narthrax too.... there's only so much red one person can take!
       

       
      Thanks for looking everyone. It's been a bit of a slog so far, but it should get easier from now on.
