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!

      Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.

      This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
      "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.
       

      A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
      I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
       
      I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.
       

      This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.

      Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all.
      They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.

      I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her.

      From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag:

      A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry.
      The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow.
      Base and done.
      Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader.

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
