Dave Paints: Shadows of Brimstone: Guardian of Targa

Recommended Posts

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.

I am interested in the color scheme you are going to pick for this one... gotta make it interesting, as you know the crowd will talk ub3r into modding his into an Ettin Barbarian!

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:

 

post-7145-0-65698100-1483585187_thumb.jpg

 

 

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.

Last one for the evening.

 

Stage 3: Using the same crap brush, stipple on a red-brown paint. I used a Reaper sample paint that I've been using for rust since I acquired it. I'll be sad when it's gone.

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work

       
      Mar 1:  base GS sculpting

       
      — LONG BREAK —
       
      Aug 2:  skin lined, basecoated, and shaded


       
      Aug 6:  skin initial highlights

      Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one.  I’ve shied away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon.  
       
      In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon...  oops!  
       


       
      I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown).  I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green.  
       
      For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown.  
       

       

       

       

       
      Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base.  I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it.  
       
      in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. 
       
      Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend.  That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      So for awhile now I've had this goal, nay, this desire, nay, this primal compulsion to build a boat.  It is not enough to have hand drawn maps, or 2D terrain tiles.  I need a fully functioning 3D boat!  Well, maybe not fully functioning.  But I want to build a cool boat!
       
      I've been working on a nautical campaign full of swashbuckling, sailing, and sea monsters for a few years now.  It's my White Whale project.  Always just on the horizon.  It'll happen some day, but in the meantime, I have a million small projects to complete and extend the chase.  One of which is my desire to build a few different sized ships to enliven any possible naval combat.
       
      I actually attempted this about two years ago, just winging it and making some measurements and throwing them at some craft supplies.  I wanted a cheap option that wasn't too difficult to repeat that way I wouldn't be discouraged from making multiple ships.  So I limited it to cheap crafting materials like foamcore, wooden dials, popsicle sticks, and thumbtacks.  And the result wasn't  bad.  Especially for my first attempt at any kind of terrain building.


      It actually turned out rather nice!  To my surprise.  But I got hung up on mast and sail designs and never finished.

      The wood on the deck had 2x1in grid carved into it for easier D&D use.

      and the figurehead was designed to be modular.

      However, overtime the boat collected dust and little scratches.  I should have given it a coat of mod podge or sealant of some kind, but never did.  And eventually it had an unfortunate run in with an injured owl that we took in for a night.

      Here's the little devil himself.
       
      Anyways, I put this project on the back burner for long enough and feel inspired to dive back in.  Especially with a certain Bones ship on the Horizon that I'm still on the fence about getting.  I was doing some browsing on the web and recently found this wonderful little blog complete with loose instructions and a plan from a now defunct wargamming site.  The blog creator had found the old plan and adapted it to build something using most of the same materials I have already stockpiled. 


      There's a few choices that I like better than my first attempt so I think I'm going to use this as some inspiration as I give this boat thing another go.

      My hold up now is still those darn masts.  The original plan above used wood and required drilling out holes for the masts.  The blogger use foam for his ship and found random bits of tubing to house his masts.  I could try to find something random like that, but I was hoping to find something simpler for easy repetition.  And I would also like to keep the masts loose so they can be removed for easy storage, or to swap out the sails.  Any thoughts?

      Any resources, tips, recommendations are very welcome!  I'll post back here with any updates.

      my second miniature! I finished this about a month ago, but my matte finish finally came in so it is truly complete on the painting front. I'll be making a base once I get into my new house, so once I get started on that I'll add more pictures.

      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.
