Aku-chan paints... Belisarius Cawl

Recommended Posts

So while I was stuck on another mini, I was putting together some of my other minis.

Unfortunately I'd gotten quite far into assembling this particular one, before I realized I wouldn't be able to pack him away afterwards due to his abundance of tiny, easily broken bits, so he's barged his way to the front of my painting queue.

 

Eventually Cawl will look like this:-

 

Spoiler

But currently he looks like this:-

As he also happens to be pretty damn fiddly to paint.

Honestly, I would have liked to have left him in even more sub-assemblies, but it would've started to get silly.

 

On the plus side I already have a colour scheme sorted for my little group of GW Cyborgs (even though I still have most of them to paint):-

Although Cawl is a bit more complicated than the rest (so much cabling!), and there's bound to be colours in there I no longer have (why did I have to use Ruddy Leather on everything?).

 

Anyways, started on his lower half:-

With a basecoat of Medium Olive and a Brownshade wash on the cloth areas.

Sadly, the wash didn't do a particularly good job of settling in the folds, so I will need to repaint pretty much all of this.

Progress:-

Turns outs, not only am I lacking two colours (Ruddy Leather and Peacock Green) needed to paint the robe according to my scheme, I've been painting it the wrong colour anyways! (Mixed up my bottle of Medium Olive with Olive Green).

 

*Throws away colour scheme list*

 

So from yesterdays basecoat of Medium Olive Olive Green, I shaded the deepest folds with 2:1 Olive Green/Scarlett Red, tidied up with some pure Olive Green, highlighted with some 1:1 Olive Green/Off-white and then blended these in with a thinned Olive Green glaze.

 

And yes a bit is missing, kept snapping off one of his back cables, so I've put it with the other bits until later.

Thanks guys!

 

Made a little progress:-

Got the armour plates painted up a nice bone colour (Oiled Leather > Tanned Leather > 1:1 Tanned Leather/Bonewhite > 1:1:2 Tanned Leather/Bonewhite/Off-white > Sepiashade Wash).

 

Now I've got to paint under his robe.

Thanks! I think his colour scheme is starting to make him look a little bit evil.

 

Little bit of progress:-

Got the inside of his robe painted (1:1 Dark Green/Black) and his cables (Hexed Lichen > 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Off-white > Blackshade Wash plus Oily Steel end bits).

 

Now I've gotta make a start on his many legs.

I've got legs:-

They're Oily Steel with a Bronze trim, washed with Black and then highlighted with either Oily Steel or 1:1 Bronze/Polished Gold.

 

I also painted his book (Cover - Scarlett Red, Pages - 1:1 Tanned Leather/Bonewhite, Post-it Notes - Yellow Ochre, Bookmark - Lonestar Leather) and then gave it a brown wash.

Egads, what an ambitious figure.  You're a brave painter.  I hope you're having as much fun with this as it looks.

I am, I pretty much love any figure that's covered in pipes and cables and whatnots.

 

 

Progress.

Had to stop painting for a bit (stupid shaky hands), so I've been working on his base:-

I think the puddles of radioactive goo worked out quite well for a first attempt.

 

But I managed a bit of painting today.

Needed to reattach a part before I could finish his lower half, so started on his upper:-

The bone-coloured armor plates are finished, but the Bronze decorations and Brass doodads still need highlighting.

Thanks guys!

 

He'll get even more complex as I attach his missing bits.

 

Finally finished his bottom half:-

Now to put it somewhere safe so I don't knock Bob the Grumpy Skullbot off again.

Thanks!

 

Made some decent progress on his top half:-

 

6HqtYXs.jpg9UNdCNl.jpg24v51FX.jpg

 

I'm still rubbish at taking one-handed pictures through.

 

So the doodads on his armour are done, robes are done, skin (1:1 Flat Flesh/Bonewhite > Fleshshade Wash > 1:1 Flat Flesh/Bonewhite > 1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Bonewhite/Off-white) and implants are done.

 

Next, I'm going to paint up a couple of the fiddly bits I left unattached:-

His hood and Larry (his other Skullbot).

      Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself.

      Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed.
       
      This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find.
      I am very pleased with how he turned out though.

      This is my version of a Games workshop Aragorn. I didn't want to paint him as Aragorn since I have two of these same minis so I decide to go for a purple skinned, white haired drow ranger.  I'm going to use him as a swordsman named Vigo in my Rangers of Shadowdeep games.
      This mini was a blast to paint, I like how the highlights turned out. Thanks for looking!
