So, Hi there, first post, there might be an introduction sub forum that I missed. I'm Relatively new to mini painting, I've painted Blood Rage, and some Pathfinder Bones, and some other stuff. At the moment, I'm working on Fireteam Zero, from Emergent games. Amazing game, btw. I am working on the Infested faction at the moment and I have 1 finished, and 2 with the torso; I think; finished, and 3 more basecoated with some rough highlights. So I would like some input, feedback, criticism, whatever, for things to do different on the next 5 minis.

 

Color scheme for torso is basecoating green, red for intestines and parasite, drybrush light green, wash dark green (or dark purple, done one of each so far), then blend in some decayed skin with yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, and black. Tell me if I'm doing this in a feasible order, this is the first time I'm asking for feedback from someone who is not a friend.

 

The first 2 pics are with just the base green, highlights and purple wash. The second 2 have the decayed skin blending. I have larger pics if the res on these is too small, I wasn't sure if the 150k limit was still in effect.

 

Any help/criticism is appreciated!

 

P.S. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE SWORDS AND THE PANTS. (WIP)

Welcome to the Reaper Forums!

Theres no subforum for new folks, so just keep on posting.

 

Upper bodies look good so far although I would say they appear a bit too colourful with the greens reds yellow and what appears to be purple.

Thanks! Yeah I thought they might be a little too colorful, I was going for bruised/decaying flesh, which has a fair amount of colors but I think the purple was a little too much. What would you suggest different?

Just my own preference, and you might want to go in another direction, but if it were me I'd lose the yellow and go lighter with the green.

Allright, thanks for the quick reply and feedback! I'm pretty happy with the torso on this one as is, the purple is a little bit blotchy but I'm going to leave it and do different stuff on others. I'll try the lighter green instead of yellow on one of the others.

I'll be watching for how yours turn out as I have assorted scifi "infected" minis from Sedition Wars as well as from Mantic that I still have to decide on colour schemes for,

I really like the effect you have on the flesh. I can't really say if it fits or not without first seeing how you paint the rest of the figure.

Thanks man, appreciate it! I'm trying to do a camo pattern on the pants and rusty blades for the knives. then some mud maybe rocks for the base.

 

While I work on that, here's the first one of the baitbags that I finished. Did a little bit different shading but the base color was the same. Matte varnish over everything except for the guts and parasite, gloss varnish over them.

Experimenting with a different color scheme on one of the other Baitbags. Not sure how I feel about it right now, might be ok after a few more layers, but I'm not sure what colors I should use. I definitely went way too pink on the skintone, though.

Thanks Dragon that helped a lot, brought down the pink quite a bit and was a good start for the recesses. It did make them a bit green though so I went in later with a bit more blue and touched them up. Also retouched the parasite and intestines and did a bit of a red gradient from the parasite.

If all of the minis in a WIP thread are listed/shown in the first post, then you can post any updates you like in the thread. Here's the relevant part of the WIP forum guidelines:

Quote

All models that exist in one thread must be shown in the first post. New figs? New thread.

Link to WIP forum guidelines

 

So, for your next group of minis, please start a new thread so we can continue to follow your work! ::): And always feel free to ask questions if you need help with anything. Again, welcome!

 

Huzzah!

      It is never a good idea to play a alternate history video game when you own a 3d printer and love history. My first mini off the the printer is the T95 tank destroyer It was an American prototype. This is in 1/100 scale and it is big for that scale.
      It will need to be cured tomorrow and cleaned up for assembly. 
      Here it is mock assembled next to a Flames of war 76mm Sherman.



      Currently working on tiger 2, 105 Pershing and E-100 Turrets. The hulls will come after that.
      Now to find a good looking Maus Stl .

      Just throwing this out there for anyone interested (yes I did back and no, I don't know them)...
      I did back their last KS as well and was happy with the results. They did a great in keeping people up to date and got all of the files out quickly.
       
      The figures look "funny" in the pictures due to them using the print-ready 3D files. I think that at the smaller scales especially, they are enhanced just enough so they will keep their detail and make them easier to paint IMO.
       
      Anyway take a look if you are interested!

      My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot.  These two american soldiers here was choices for one of the pre-generated characters I had ready, but he was not picked by any of the 3 players (my husband, my son and girlfriend).

      Sorry for the late yell, been the busiest month of life...ever!
       
      TooFatLardies collaboration - last few hours of my KS for British Home Front. They're working on a FREE supplement with rules and scenarios for all the minis, not just for the women, rules that will fit with your male and existing figures too for Chain of Command. But of course there are many games and eras you can use em in.
       
      As well as women there's hero dogs, pigeons and other critters!
       
      Bad Squiddo is just me and I've been working my arrrrse off getting this off the ground, so even a cheeky peek and share would be amazing. And thank you everyone who has backed so far, we've made some really incredible things happen.

      Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.
      Miniatures
      Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.
      Hero Decks
      Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!
      Villain Decks
      Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!
      Issue Decks and Issue Boards
      Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!
      Issue Guides
      The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.
      Hero Dice
      Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.
      Tokens
      Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.
