Stared work on this guy finally! 

 

I sculpted the base myself. I really like that he is slight bending at the knees which made him standing on the stairs i made look more authentic.

On to the painting!

Texture is the name of the game from this weekend. 

  • GW: Vomit Brown (which is like a yellow brown) on the tunic. Several coats until I could not see grey from the primer. 
  • GW: Vomit Brown & Leather White (my favorite paint bottle ::): ) [4:1] - To do some upper highlights on the all the raised areas.
  • Dotting or Stippling with a Mixture: GW Vomit Brown mixed with Walnut brown. So the color was a little darker than the tunic's primary color. 
  • Then stippled or dotted with Walnut brown over THE ENTIRE THING. 
  • After that I did some diluted brown washes pushing into the recesses 
  • and some re-highlighting, re-shadowing, etc etc.

The pants:

  • Painted in Leather White
  • highlighted in PURE White
  • washed in Muddy Brown (which is a green brown.)

The bag:

  • Painted Royal Purple, highlighted with Leather white then washed in Muddy Brown

Got a little more progress on him: Hair, Fur, Bow, Quiver, belt, knife

 

The front picture shows a better view of his tunic and the texture I attempted to add.

 

I tried for a bone handle skinning knife. I thought the quiver looked nice. It's one done yet but I like the two toned.

 

What do y'all think?

Oh Fir'a!!!!! Got more done last night. I've been cleaning my desk off and what not so I had plenty of space... what that has to do with this... You'll find out when the package arrives. Muahaha

 

So I decided to take a crack at the hair "shine" effect. I worked on the skin: Leather white, wasted in a Green wash, dried, Washed in a Reaper flesh wash (which is a red/brown tone) then leather white again with highlights of pure white. Not sure if i'm done but for a table top piece I think it would be fine if called it done.

 

Quiver and knife: added some free hand stitching. Makes the attempt at the bone handle look better in my opinion. What do y'all think?

and, finally got decent pictures. My lighting situation is not good. But that is changing soon.

Started working on the base a little while ago and forgot to post it. Turning our better than I thought. As it is I'm leaving but I will probably go back and do more on it later.

Additionally, I did some more detailing bits-n-bobs that you can't really see in the picture. 

________________________________________________________________

THE BASE

  • Steps are painted in a Terran Khaki which has this kind of green to it as well.
  • Progressive thin layers until it was solid
  • Vallejo Green Wash over the steps with a focus on pushing toward the "end" of the step.
  • Next, I took a Cloudy Grey and diluted it down and washed it into the recesses of the steps. 
  • Kind of using it as a blending color for the Khaki and Green wash
  • UPPER Steps Base: Cloudy Grey, VLJ German Grey (Reaper does not appear to have an equivalent but the closes match is Stormy grey)
  • Painted in Cloudy Grey then diluted down 3:1 the German Grey and pulled it back to the end of the circle base.
  • Highlights, which are not very visible in this picture: Leather White used to hit the tips of the steps.

I want to be able to refer back to this.

::): Cool! That reminders me. I need to put a break down of the process for the base. I will add that to the post above. :)

Alright, last photo. This piece is done but I wanted to put in the base.

 

I added some texture to it. sprinkled on some flocking.  This photo is not great as I want the final show-off ones to display it better.

      So this is my first complete kitbash, this one is made of parts from five different kits. I've made it to be used as a ranger for my Rangers of Shadowdeep warband. Hope you like it!

      Metal Centaur Archer. Pretty happy with outcome. What do you think?

      I've had this one in the works for a while. She's a little more cheerful and Art Noveau than most of the rest of my Miskatonic staff, but that's okay! Misk.U. cultivates eccentrics of all types. She seems to be handling the job just fine. And those pointed ears indicate she's already survived a brush with chaos, or perhaps has a little bit of eldritch in her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      Her colleagues are a Stonehaven halfling librarian and a Black Cat librarian/cultist. Gave them both a minor touch-up for this shoot.

      Promised thing, thing due. Here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture).
      I will now work on a display base for them. I've found an inspiring picture of a dusky sunset in the desert for the background.
