My Next Group of Minis (8)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I've decided to give the WIP thread thing a 2nd try. I hope 8 isn't too many mini's to include in one thread.

But now I've got this idea that I'm going to paint them in an assembly line type fashion and see how that turns out.

 

The two mini's that I've already started on are the last two of the DGS mini's (on the right side)

The two on left are both Reaper Mini's (Technic Captain & Eando Kine)

I used a hobby knife to saw away at Eando's right hand until I could separate his hand from his body, then I bent his arm until it was near a 90 degree angle. I then used a pin drill to drill out a slot in his hand,

so after I attach halberd I'll need to fix his hand too. The halberd is modded too, I added the spear tip by pinning on the top portion of a sword blade. I kind of wish I had some sculpty material, but it

turned out okay in the end.

I also added the sword/gladius to the valkyrie, I didn't know if the hilt would interfere with her shield arm so I pinned it onto the back, I kind of wish it was on the side now, but it's too late for that.

 

Last but not least I bought 4 hasslefree mini's, I decided to try out the resin ones, these will be the first resin mini's I'll try to paint.WIP9.thumb.jpg.11c3bf7ee285be814a644193c392e213.jpg

I still have to wash these, the two mini's on the left I've already assembled, the one on the far right, I'm holding off on adding her shield until later, since it gets in the way of the face.

The dwarf will also have a shield on his backside, I'm not sure if I want to attach it now or later.

The last picture shows the difference in scale, the dwarf is the shortest of the Hasslefree mini's and the Ragnar looking guy is the tallest. I may have a hard time painting their eyes.

So I have 3 goals in mind for these mini's they are

1) Use a lighter palate/selection of colors, all the last mini's of mine have had a very dark look, so I want these to be significantly lighter.

2) Get better at shading the weapons, I'm going to try to use color blending on the sword/axe/spear blades

3) To buy some basing material and give that a try on this round of minis (I may practice on a few old ones first).

 

Thanks for looking, I'll be asking for some tips/advice as I proceed with these.
