Sparrow paints Khanjira


Recommended Posts

So I've been painting Khanjira for a long time now. Like for a year-ish now. The last time I picked it up I just wasn't happy with how it was turning out and just put it on the shelf and there it sat. Until now. I've finally picked it back up again, I'm not terribly disappointed in how it's turning out but it's still got a long way to go. I figure by making this WIP thread I will hopefully get it done in a timely manner. And by timely manner I mean by Valentine's Day. No particular reason for the date, it's just a date that I will remember. Anyway, here is my progress so far:

Ignore the state of my desk, it's been worse. Also, note to self, stop putting models together before painting them.

All I accomplished today was covering white spots. I started this before I learned about brown liner. Beyond cleaning things up I'm not really sure where I'm going with this yet, which is probably part of why I left it alone for so lone.

 

Hmm...you have some lovely greens going on already. For some reason, it's reminding me of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....

 

I'll just leave that thought there. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Still working on filling in white spots. I covered most of them on the leg and arm plates, the rest of the body is hit or miss, mostly miss because whenever I turn it over "whoops, I missed a spot." I really wish I'd waited to put this one together until after it was painted, it's pretty painful to hold and I don't really have anything big enough to hold it on that is sturdy enough as well.

I've decided to go ahead and remove the mold lines. They bug me much more than the gaps. We'll see how I feel about them once I get the mold lines removed, they aren't that big but they are big enough to be noticeable. It'll probably take me a day or so to get it cleaned up and repaint the areas that I will need to.

 

On another note I'm still trying to figure out the best way to weigh down the base. It topples over backwards when I place it on the base. I'm leaning towards washers but it's a pretty shallow area so I'm not sure I'd be able to get heavy enough ones that would also fit under the base and not make it lean in another direction.

I woke up early and I think that I've gotten all the mold lines, the ones that are accessible anyway. So that didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would have. I have yet to start to repaint which will hopefully start happening either this evening or in the morning. I hope to have it at least back to where I started no later than Sunday. So I probably won't have much in the way of pictures to add until Monday when I can start doing new things to it (hopefully).

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
