So, I've dug out a mini to paint up for the same Hobby Hangout contest that Ub3r is entering. Flying Frog Games' Shadows of Brimstone: Guardian of Targa. We all know how bad I suck at keeping up WIPs, but I'll try to post as I go.

 

This is what it looks like:

I'm kidding. It's the guy on the left, here:

I've just finished cleaning and assembling mine, and as you can see, I had to do some filling on the base...which I tried to cover up with some bits, since I can't sculpt.

It's on a Secret Weapon Trash base, 60mm, beveled. (Bleh for beveled edge bases, but it's all I had that fits the theme I'm going for.) As you can see in the tags, I'm going to be doing some heavy weathering and some OSL in this project. Stay tuned.

It's actually not huge. I don't have pics, but my 02136 Rafael Maladoni (sorry, no Sir ForScale handy) on his 30mm SW Cobblestone base is almost exactly half the height of this guy on HIS base, and the unbased paint bottles in the photo are almost the same height. So he's probably about 1-2/3 to 1-3/4 ForScales.

Color scheme: Heavy weathering. I like weathering things, and it's surprisingly easy. I'll take pics (if I remember) at each paint stage, so people can see my process. I'll also be doing it all by hand, as I don't have any chipping medium.

 

Current color scheme: black primer. Rafael Maladoni added for scale. He's on a 30mm SW lipped Cobblestone base, and is nearly half the height of Mr. Guardian.

As the primer needs time to cure, that's it for today.

Interesting mini.

 

I am looking for some gears like those, any clue where I could get some?

 

I'm going to hazard a guess and say in the game that he got. :D  Otherwise you can probably find singles on evilbay.

 

The Shadows of Brimstone series has some great models.  I'm very slowly painting the Swamps of Death set for a friend and then will eventually paint his City of Ancients as well.  But I'm really looking forward to seeing your model come along ::pulls up a chair and frosty mug of milk::

The gears I got at Michael's. Hasslefree also sells bags of watch parts, but those are considerably smaller. These are: Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Mini Gears, if you want specifics.

EDIT: The Guardian of Targa, itself, is a single. A not-cheap single, I might add.

So, as promised, pics at each stage of the weathering. (I lied, I'm working on it more tonight.)

 

Here are the colors we're going to be using:

We'll work our way from right to left (because I'm left-handed, so suck it up, buttercup), in stages.

 

Stage 1: Basecoat the area to be rusted in Reaper 09109 Ruddy Leather, as shown here. Don't worry if it's not perfect, in the end result, no one will be able to notice. Just try to keep it relatively streak-free...ish.

As you can see, heavy weathering going on here. Some of that will be covered up, but weathering is messy, and we don't want to get it on the non-weathered parts.

Thanks for the info on the gears.  I am guessing they are in the bead section?  I will have to look the next time I am in there.

 

Wow, you really are going to go with heavy weathering here.  I like it.  

 

 

 

No worries vegascat, it's all good.

Pretty sure that's where they're at.

 

Some of the weathering will be covered up by "chipped" paint, but I have to lay in the rust first. It's the messiest part.

Sorry for the crap lighting, but it's dark, and I'm painting something I could do in my sleep.

 

Stage 2: Take your 11-year old Games Workshop Large Round Drybrush (that you've had to trim), and stipple on your first color. No patterns, just random application of the color in spotty, streaky, not-quite drybrushing movements.

 

Here, we're using A.V. Air Metallics 71.080 Rust. It's my first time using this color, and I'm not entirely happy with it, so I'll be adding another, red-brown, Reaper sample paint next.
