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:

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.

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...

      Hello everyone, I completed this Wizards of the Coast model today. This is a 88714, Goblin Scout of the Drazen's Horde faction. It's a Chainmail Miniatures model that was sculpted by Jerzy Montwill. The base is 20mm in diameter and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred

      Hello everyone, I had painted this Wizards of the Coast 88362, Hammerer years ago and it was the perfect model to practice weathering effect. So, I took it a step farther last weekend during Reaper Virtual Expo. I followed the advices David Cecil and Justin McCoy give over their respective Weathering Effects classes. I added rust, oil leaks, blood and improved the scratches. I also added mud between the stone tiles on the base and enhanced the glowing effect of the eye and runes. This model was sculpted by Jim Warner.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....
