Knarthex' Chainmail Orc Druid- Hangout Mini of the Month

Recommended Posts

So considering the fact that I am the Instigator of this, it is only fitting that I post my work tonight....

(I almost forgot! Good thing the guys on the hangouts reminded me!)

 

So he had the the mold line removed that runs up from his left foot, up his body and arm, across the wolf pelt's nosw, and the staff's skull, down the staff and his right hand fingers, and down the staff and it's accoutrements...

Also on the inside of the wolf skin between his legs...

 

The tab was cut off, and after drilling holes, pins were inserted in his legs.

 

He was then primed with P3 White Primer from a rattle can with 3 light coats...

and this is where he stands....

 

Not quite sure what I am going to do with him yet, I thought about doing the wolf skin in Technicolor, but I have already done that twice...

I think that I am going to use the old Polly S Armor Dark Green for the mid tone on his skin though....

 

Maybe a Winter Wolf for the fur?????

 

Hair will likely be the MSP Red Hair Triad....

 

And the item strapped to his back looks like a long twisted horn with feathers on it, 

Maybe a Rod / Staff / Wand / Fetish????

 

Thanks for looking!

 

George

 

Darn it!

The mold line is still there on the skull on top of the staff!!!!! :grr:

So tonight I painted his eye sockets with VMC German Grey, then the scalera with SC75 Sahara yellow

The skin is Polly S Armor Dark Green, with a touch of SC75 SS Camo Shade for the deepest skin tones...

Going to use the Polly S armor dark green as my mid tone then lighten it with

Something

 

The idea is that the Polly S was the color that I painted all my Ral Partha orcs from back in the 80s and 90s with that skin tone, so He will match, albeit with more than just a black wash to give depth...

A lighter green or yellow would be the obvious choices... but you could go so many ways. Since you're thinking about doing red hair and his hair is such a large part of the model due to his beard, it might be fun to try a light blue in your skin highlights. I'd do some testing first, obviously, but it could be interesting.

Either way, I look forward to seeing where you go with it.

So last night I did some work on him....

 

Fixed the ear I missed... ::P:

Irises with SC&% Black and Brown Leathers 50%

 

stealing an Idea from Baily03 (see above link) I mixed some Warcolour Violet 5 into  some Polly S Armor Dark Green, with a tiny touch of my shade tone, and added it to high points on his skin.... His nose, around his eyes, lips, knuckles...

I then painted my mid tone with straight Polly S Armor Dark Green.

This covered much of the Violet, I will try to bring this back a little....

I then used SC F&G Sharpnel Red on his hair, as a darker base for the MSP Red Hair Triad...

The Big Voodoo Guy looks SO MUCH BETTER  as a W.I.P. than he did a a bare metal casting that he hardly seems like the same Guy. NICE PROGRESS!

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      The general for my orc army is the Reven Warlord orc sergeant. Really like this figure, probably because although he is big there are not loads of bells and whistles. He just looks capable. Figure is about 35/40mm tall. Shown with the new Nolzurs pathfinder orcs for comparison purposes.

      Here are the boar riders from my orc army, speed painted for a competition. These are by Mantic, quite a good low priced kit.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.
       


      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard
       

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.
