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.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      I know I haven't posted in a while, but I still check in daily on the friendliest mini-painting forum on the web!  Still lurking here while pursuing my obsession with OSL.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of my latest work. It was a very fun piece to paint. The T-Rex fossil on its back and the different types of stones that form this extraplanar creature are amazing. I painted the crystals as amethysts, well suited for an earth protector. This purple stone is said to be incredibly protective, healing, and purifying. It's claimed it can help rid the mind of negative thoughts and bring forth humility, sincerity, and spiritual wisdom.
       
      This Bones model 77185, Large Earth elemental was sculpted by Kevin Williams. I changed the position of his right arm and  mounted it on a 75mm (huge size) square base.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.
