Decided to start painting this awesome barbarian up as part of the Hobby Hangout Competition that's going on right now!   Torgar the Barbarian Limited edition: 100 copies Concept: Roberto Cirillo

OKAY!   Here we go, I've spent about 2 hours assembling this guy as there were a few mold lines and the head didn't want to fit on the neck very well so I had to do a minor bit of surgery on the hea

Gotta let this stuff dry and maybe do another layer of the snow!

Decided to start painting this awesome barbarian up as part of the Hobby Hangout Competition that's going on right now!

Will you disclose the nature of the competition or provide a link?  If that info is closed to non-members, that's okay.  Just wondering. :unsure:

 

It's from "The Hobby Hangout" facebook group. Called "New Years Resolutions"

 

Here's the info:

I agree with you on not wanting to mod him very much, especially at that scale, any missteps will stick out more.  I think he'd look great with Maori style tattoos or if that's a bit much, then something simpler.  Too me, such a large model with so much exposed skin almost calls for something like that.  You could take it a step further an modify the sword (or axe, I suppose, though I think the sword would be easier) into a maori style weapon as well.  In any case, I'll be watching with a lot of anticipation as barbarians are your specialty. :)  

 

No pressure.  ^_^  ^_^

 

I'm liking the idea of doing tats on him and I'm debating the skin tones still, my inclination is to go with ruddy skin tones with reds and pinks, freckles, blood splatter.

 

I say again.....

 

Did you START yet?

 

Not yet, it's 10:00 pm here and I JUST finished cleaning up my hobby/game room along with putting up a shelf, artwork, and a few other things. I had the tech out today for our smart home and we were going over a lot of stuff which kept my attention away from painting.

 

I'll see if I can get started up on him tomorrow night after D&D game ends. He's calling to me to get started on him, but priorities!

Actually I'm having trouble getting started, truth be told. I know when I do get started it will be fun, but the motivation has been lacking for a couple weeks, it happens sometimes and I just need to ride it out and not force myself.

 

You've had a very busy time, moving, new job and all.

And less time for the hobby and no new purchases..

 

Very understandable.

 

I recognize the funk...

 

What might help, is just a little hobby time to start with.

 

Take a few minutes, a day.

Make sure you remove the mold lines, one day.

Maybe glue a few parts together the next day.

 

Think about some colours and just put the paint pots on your desk.

 

And think about the background of this fellow.

 

Why is he here, what did happen to him?

Will he be defending his home? Or is he a raider?

 

You'll get back to it,

 

We are here to help, and yes we ant you to paint this, but we're not pushing you in a bad way...

 

**** And if that doesn't help, WOOF will set off a glitterbomb if this barbarian doesn't see a basecoat within 3 weeks...****

There was a time a barbarian,grim-faced and scarred,

Crossed the path of this traveling bard,

In clenched fist he held a dismembered head,

When he came closer, I saw it was quite dead.

 

"Hold, good sir," I cried, " I'm not quite certain

Why you would be carrying this most grisly of burdens."

He merely grunted, "You'd think the answer would be plain.

This man right here, one of my mighty kin he had slain."

 

" Oh my!" I exclaimed, " Would you please bother

 to tell me who he killed, perhaps it was your father?"

 The large man snorted, " Nay, good skald, it was not my sire,

he had already found his glory in a blaze of dragon's fire."

 

"But if it wasn't your father, good Axe Lord,

then was it your brother that was put to the sword?"

The big man chuckled," Though you may be wrong, your question is fair,

but my sibling died trying to grapple with a cave bear."

 

"But surely," I said, " it must then be your uncle,

in a fight over a gem, perhaps a carbuncle?"

The big man shook his head, " Nay, his ending was more drab,

but it taught me what happens when you don't pay your bar tab."

 

He continued on, "The one who died was our foes' terror,

the only one of us worthy of being our clan's Axe Bearer.

With fierce visage and steely thews, boldly going through life

Gained glory and plunder through battle and strife.

 

And so I now carry this one's head, though he be a foreigner,

But on that day he proved himself to be a true warrior.

So I honour him now by returning him to his land."

Then he turned away from me, burden in hand.

 

"But wait!" I cried, " you still did not mention

what the answer was to my original question!

Who was your mighty kin, if not father,uncle or brother?"

The barbarian merely turned his head and said, " 'Twas my grandmother."

LOVE THIS!!

 

You have just inspired me to make it about this story with the basing and mood!

While I admit I enjoy watching Uber get roasted a little, on account of all the times he's said "Are You Done Yet?" in the challenge threads, I think he's been cooked enough.  This WIP is now 6 pages of chatter, and while I don't want to step on anyone's funtimes, whenever he does get around to starting it will mean a backlog to chug through before anyone can get to the posted progress.  Threads last a long time when they go legacy, and if some future person goes looking for a painted example it's going to be a bit of a hassle. 

 

He'll start it when he starts it, and whenever that is I'd suggest he ask Froggy or someone to prune the first few pages a bit to make it easier to search to the good stuff.

OKAY!

 

Here we go, I've spent about 2 hours assembling this guy as there were a few mold lines and the head didn't want to fit on the neck very well so I had to do a minor bit of surgery on the head cavity where the neck and head meet, then I had to use greenstuff to fill some gaps.

 

This is where he's at right now -

You may ask... "But ub3r, you like axes more than swords!?" I do, but the axe only comes in the left hand and the head also comes in the left hand, I want the head more than the axe, the mood is more to what I want this piece to be...

 

I'm thinking I might scrap my "Necro Tree" build and actually use the Dwarf from that in a vignette with this guy...

 

There's 2 possibilities that I'm mulling over, both deal with elevation:

 

1) Dwarf (54mm scale) on high ground looking back DOWN over his shoulder at this massive very angry human barbarian (72mm scale) who has just killed his friend after they stole something from him...

 

OR

 

2) Dwarf (54mm scale) on low ground, looking back UP over his shoulder at this massive very angry human barbarian (72mm scale) who has just killed his friend after they stole something from him...

 

Here's comparison shots -

I think they actually look pretty good together next to each other even tho they are different scales. The barbarian would just be a dude that is like 7ft tall and the dwarf is a bit on the short side for his race around 3.5 ft tall.

YESSSSS!!!!!!!!! Looks like the inspiration has gotten your gears going. ::D:

 

Definitely! Thanks again ::D:

 

Any thoughts on using the dwarf with him and who should have the higher ground?

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.

      Finally painted her up! Is that a wolf head, an elf head, or... your friend's head in the sack? Can't see too well in the photos, but I did add some blood...

      I've finished another project that was on my to-do list for years.
      First the pics, then some more words:
       

       

       

       
      This was a special resin figure from ReaperCon 2014 (April 24-27 that year) -- sculpted by Bobby Jackson, given to attendees who paid extra for the Artist Banquet on Saturday night. 
      I was supposed to paint him for Reaper's studio collection after the con, but I got distracted with other stuff and he fell off my list.
      He had the SKU 01529 for a while, and although he is out of production now, his clone will be back soon in Bones 5 as part of the "Dreadmere Personas" Core Set extra.  I'll try to remember to revise the tags of this post when he has a new 77xxx or 78xxx number.
      Ian Markon (Kuro Cleanbrush) painted a spectacular rendition in 2015 as "Knight of the Blood Moon", with red armor and wings.  You can find it here on the Forum by searching for "01529".
       
      So far in 2021, I've been finishing some figures left over from years past ... and getting points in the Reaper Challenge League for it.
      This guy earned 3 points for the April theme of "No More Sunrises" (vampires and other nocturnal or subterranean monsters). 
       
      I couldn't decide on a color scheme so I started painting a cool grey monochrome as if he were in moonlight. 
      I was going to add a warm light from behind, too, but I just kept going with the cool monochrome all around. 
      I concentrated on the differences in contrast and texture among the materials: armor plates and trim, cloak exterior and interior, sword (blade, crossguard, pommel, hilt), gems, skin, hair, teeth, stone steps, skull, etc.
       
      I spent extra time on the face, as always, such as getting the blends very smooth. 
      The eyes are sculpted very large, which gave me freedom to manipulate the expression.  I painted the upper lids a fraction of a millimeter lower, to get just the right half-lidded look.
      And in order to make him seem more feral, I painted his scleras darker and irises lighter.  I did this a few years ago on a half-orc Pathfinder figure I painted (Skreed Gorewillow).
       
      The specific colors were Blue Liner ("black"), the cold grey triad (9172 Stormcover Grey, 9173 Coldstone Grey, and 9174 Icy Grey, now out of production), Misty Grey, and Pure White.
      The blending was somewhat challenging, because the greys changed value from wet to dry!  Stormcover Grey dries a little lighter, and Icy Grey and Misty Grey dry a little darker.  On the back of the cloak, for example, I would see a spot where I wanted to deepen the shadow, and Stormcover Grey looked perfect while wet, but then it would dry lighter and the "shadow" disappeared!  So I had to add Blue Liner to the Stormcover Grey, and trusted that what looked too dark at first would look right when dry.  This phenomenon made it fun to paint little streaks of Stormcover Grey on the interior of the cloak or the sword blade, because the streak would go on invisible over the black, but then appear grey as it dried a few seconds later.
       
      Enjoy!

      Odds are this thread may be a tad slow at times due to a variety of factors, but probably also because of the fact it's not only a resin conversion kit, but a recast one since you can't get the original one anymore.
       
      Right off the bat, I have to say this: No, I won't be painting it in Kirk's colours.  They're nice, but I'm not one to always do the "canon colours" or "factory paintjob" thing.  I'm actually kind of thinking of some sort of patchy and "muddied" scatter camouflage based off of some sort of combination of Spotted Hyenas, Dalmatians, and even Great Danes.
       

      ^Obligatory "glory shot" of what I suspect will wind up being used.
      - Master Grade MS-06S Zaku II Ver 2.0 Char Aznable's (will mainly be used for the frame)
      - Universal Century MS-05L Zaku I Sniper resin conversion kit
      - SIMP/EVO Studio Zaku II (Ver 2.0) Grunts decal sheet
      - CJHobbies metal detail up parts kit (will mainly be used for leg thrusters as well as the mono-eye)
       
      Yeah, it'll be a bit of a situation of not really using everything in that detail up kit, but such is life.  I don't want to try and figure out what size thrusters to get to work with the kit.  And yes, I know the Zaku I doesn't have the leg thrusters, but oh well.  Resin kit has them, and I kind of like that it's almost like it's a slightly modified Zaku I for better mobility.
       

      ^So uh, where's construction so far?  Well, truthfully?  This is where things left off, but will be seeing a decent amount of progress in the very near future.  Yup, you build the initial kit only to then take three quarters of it apart, whee!

      Story
      By participating in this campaign you fully accept the Terms and Conditions - as stated in the Risks and Challenges section - in their entirety.
      Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
       Wait a minute… the estimated delivery time is after only three months? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: We’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can at least reach the main campaign goal, which is why we started the whole manufacturing process. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, as simple as that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in a record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!
       To follow, we would like to demonstrate to you how our renderings are identical to what you will receive:
       The top image is the digital 3D rendering of the piece, the bottom one is a photo of the actual miniature you will get.
