Pathfinder 60100 The Horned Hunter WIP

Recommended Posts

There I was the hobby store, I had the bones version in my hand when I ran across the metal Pathfinder version, I opted for metal. Still working out my NMM, planning on some color glazing before it's done. I also decided that this dude gets an elaborate base. I don't play with my figs, so they will all be getting the advanced base treatment. I also decided to play with green stuff for the first time. I only have pics of the helmet mods right now, but there's more (next post).

I love this mini and like where you are going; that base is looking ace!!

 

The blue is really good; the NMM still needs its contrast pushed waaay up but from your comment it is not complete yet, right?

Off to a great start!  Will be watching this as I plan to eventually paint this guy up too since he's an enemy in my current Pathfinder campaign -- albeit not for quite a while yet.

@ Willen, What really do you mean? So far I felt it was way too B & W and needed more greys (at the bottom). But that would actually reduce the contrast,no?The bracers haven't been touched yet (base/wash only). And no I didn't consider the metal done, just done enough to move on and get more of the fig worked out. What troubles me now its that the leather strap. on his chest/back  seams to be getting lost against his flesh. Maybe getting the buckle painted will help some. Not too worried about the back as he has a sword and quiver mounted there. My colors seem to be blending into a cohesive representation of mud (blue excepted).

I like how it's turning out so far.

 

If I may, for the leather strap, how about something redder or darker (maybe Harvest Brown or Ruddy Leather) to offset it more from his skin?

Redder would be my suggestion for the leather strap as well. Some of the color used on the feet would help cohesion.

 

The NMM is still a bit stone-like and not metal yet. White is not strong or defined enough, and I feel the grey aras lack some "reflection" to make it more metallic. If the are pointing upwards, a blue tint will help it a lot. If they are point downwards, it would be a more brownish one. 

Edit: The blacks look grey too, they need to be pushed into pure black. That is what I meant by "lacking contrast range", actually.

 

Metal is rarely purely grey in the midtones, unless there is an overcast sky. You can always see a hint of the surrounding colors.

Thanks for the input guys, I'll try the red.

@Willen, agreed, I plan on glazing in some color at the end. Will give the transitions and contrast some more work first. I wanna get some more paint on the head and attach it before "finalizing" the armor as well.

The legs and upper body on this guy look amazing. I also like his metal belt/junk protector, but it could maybe use a little tidying up. It's still a much nicer NMM than I can do. I'm having a hard time getting over how beautiful his skin and furry legs are. Very natural looking. This guy is dripping with harry machismo. So glad you joined the boards Flaming Tiki. You have a wonderful painting style.

@CorallineAlgae Thanks! - So far I am quite happy to be here.

 I finally got his horns painted and the head attached!

That is all so far today. All the previous recommendations will be turned into reality later tonight. I'm pretty happy with my mods to the helmet (painting aside). I also made him a spear that I can't wait to get into his hand. Lol, we'll see about my other green stuff bits. I dunno, you'll see.

I put in a little work tiding up some metal and finishing up his bracers. I used oil paint on the wood bits so I had to wait a while before I could lay down any paint on my spear ends and "ribbons". Ha! Regarding the ribbons, I like 'em. I thought the blue would be right as to balance out the blue on the body, I wasn't sure, so right now I have them only based, no shadows or highlights. Just in case I wanted change them up. I believe I do. The blue is a bit overpowering. I think that I'll pick out a few strands and do them in green and purple. Maybe a satiny yellow and purple, there will be a fair amount of green on the base.  Just above the spear head I plan on a small gold, err, "element" , like a, ohh, I don't know, a medal? I'm sure you get it. Gold. The buckle in the leather on his chest too. Should provide some balance.

"Holy lack of planning Batman!" _Still more painting to go, on almost all areas, fig and base. But, even tough I love the length of my spear, it's gotta get a scale foot or so removed. Mentally kicks the wall and shakes head. Could be much worse. I didn't expect the bow ribbon to be going around the tree trunk, but I'll take it. Happy with the purple bits, toned it all down a bit.

EDIT: that's better!

@CorallineAlgae Thanks, I'm real happy with the tilt of his head, he really seems to be looking something down.

 Getting super close here. I've learned a bunch on this fig. After seeing these photos, I feel that I need to go back and fix up his belt piece, at the least. The NMM on the long front part is the first I part I started with, by the time I got to other parts I understood the game a bit more, and I don't really like the part now (as one would expect).

 The base is making me happy. I plan on a small bit of water front and back. I can't wait to add the foliage I've been collecting for it,patience, water first.

 I'm new so C&C please, I'd appreciate it.

Just about done with this guy. I need to fix and paint the balls at the end of the his horns (that sounds wrong). A few spots will need dabs of dullcoat, and I don't know if I can tolerate the lip left from my resin pour. Yea, next time the dam/lip will be"finished height" and the pour will "bubble" at the top, rookie move. I may still add some more foliage, I don't wanna get too carried away with it though.

      This guy as it turns out can be disassemble into pieces!
      Win for me, because I hate detailed undercuts.
       
      And I do not like the staff (fish/dragon)head.
      Does not fit the character imo.
      The red squiggly turned out verynice!
       
      FINISHED here!

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.
       
      Everything on the beast is TMM.

      My next project is another ranger. I already have a cool male elf ranger, but thought it might be nice to add a female version. So going through the Bones minis I came across Nienna.
       
      Unfortunately her face detail was very shallow and detail was overall a bit hit and miss. I love the pose, though.
       
      Out comes the scalpel, greenstuff and bitz box.
       
      Two evening sessions later I swapped the head and weapon, shaved away some of the front detail and resculpted the area.
       
      I am not entirely finished yet, but soon I can establish the base colours.

      I recently played and really enjoyed Pathfinder: Kingmaker (PC not tabletop), and I've had the urge to paint up some Pathfinder miniatures.  This guy is the Stag Lord (SKU 60073), I figured he would be quite appropriate as the first miniature painted up to be photographed on the ruined keep scenic backdrop I built recently.  I really enjoyed painting this guy (I am weird and enjoy painting skin tones far too much, bare chested models are always a treat).  My only regret is gluing his helmet on before painting his face, those big teeth made it really hard to get a brush inside the helmet at an angle that wasn't awkward, after a massive struggle I gave up trying to dot the eyes.
