Jasper paints Oathsworn's Burrow and Badgers

Recommended Posts

I think robinh has it right, bit of a drybrush would bring out some of the interesting details

 

also, after, i'd likely turn a few of them upside down, let some PVA flow down (so it spreads out like a V only other way round) and add a bit of flock for that oh so interesting ruin "moss" look hehe. Or you know, not, if you don't like it :) Just a thought!

I was actually just wondering if the base colour on the plaster looked decent, since all I'd done was base coat and a black wash...I guess it must have looked alright  ::D:

 

Since then I've done the drybrushing on the stones:

And added some more stains to the plaster:

Oh, and base coated the ground.

I think I've got the first one done to where I'm happy with it.

The other three are a couple of steps behind, but I should get them caught up today or tomorrow (as my neck allows).

I like the idea of adding some moss, but after I get all 4 finished and a coat of sealer in them.

Back to work and back working on shrews.  Decided to block in all the colours today to see how he looked.

The black is just a base for the metallics.

I was thinking of painting the tunic red, but don't have any real reds with me, so gave it a coat of Auburn Shadow to start with.  Now I'm kind of liking the dark red/brown leather look....

Thoughts?

Haven't been feeling much like painting the last little bit.  Today I did, which was nice.

Pretty much finished up the skin, fur, eyes, claws, tunic and belts and pouches and put down a background colour on the shield.  It was a good lunch hour. ::D:

Next session will be the metals.

 

If anyone was wondering about scale for these little shrews:

Don't have a Sir Forscale here, but NOVA troops are pretty standard...

Oh.  They are smaller than I thought.

 

The shrews are pretty much the smallest of the bunch.  They are done proportionally (unlike most other anthropomorphic ranges) so the bigger the critter, the bigger the fig.

Pretty sure the Badger Merc is still the biggest fig in the range.  He's listed at 46mm tall.  Oops, nope, the new Badger Warrioress will be 47mm (shipping soon!!).  The Barn Owl is technically taller (listed at 50mm) but much of that is wings...

Progress!

Metals are base coated and washed.  Sadly all the metal highlights in the pics are from the lights.

Just the highlighting of the metals and a few little touch ups to go on this guy, then home to get a base.

Well, after a couple of unproductive days where my neck felt like it was grinding broken glass, I got this guy finished up.

Well done until he gets based anyway.

 

I did a bit on the Shrew Slaver to test the fur colour, but not enough to bother taking a pic.

      Next week, the Lost Colony: Spaceship Graveyard Kickstarter goes live.
       
      Preview video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoWMlOpl2Vk
       
      Pre-signups at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saucermenstudios/lost-colony-spaceship-graveyard
       
      Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind.
      This modular, 3D printable terrain is the second Kickstarter from Saucermen Studios and is even bigger and more diverse than the last. As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields.
       
      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      i stumbled across this neat article on social media. It seems doable enough - balsa, hydrogen peroxide +sun light, and marine epoxy?
      Not huge application, but I suppose it would allow glass skyscrapers, greenhouses, and... mostly windows? Will post if I try. Please share if you try.

      Fiendish portal by Artisan Guild. Where, oh where, might it lead? 
       

       
      I struggled with this for a year but really learned a lot about blending and lighting by working on this.

      This year's Christmas present to myself was a Sonic Mini 4k printer.  I've done a few runs now and promised a pic of a painted mini at some point.  Gardain here was a bit of a failure as it turns out there were a few problems with the pre-supports.  Still, he's 99% ok which means he's good enough to use as an example, but also that I don't care enough to paint to a high standard.
       
      So with that in mind, he was painted with a thin layer of primer through the airbrush, a slightly thinned basecoat, and then a few washes.  I.e. the point is to show off how much detail the printer can do, how visible the layer lines are, etc, not how well I can (or can't) paint. He is a 32mm scale dwarf, which means he is a little taller than a Reaper dwarf, but not quite as tall as a Reaper human.
       

       
      The very bottom of this gauntlet pancaked, but you can only really see it if he is upside down.
       

       
      Yup, that's a hair support.  The presupport was at too low of an angle so it bonded to the figure.
       


       
      Btw, those eyes are tiny. His right eye is really bad because the arm blocks coming in from below, the sculpted bushy eyebrow makes any high angle impossible, and he has a big nose.  Jab straight in and hit where you aim!  In fact, they are so small that I can't even tell I painted them at arm's length.  If you skipped them to get him on the table no one would notice.
       

       
      And there you have it, my first [painted] 3D print.

      I've been working on a hugely modular spaceship wreckage system. The base set has 60+ parts but the entire project includes over 150 models.
