77368: Shadow Demon and Tamiya Clears

Recommended Posts

Amazing.

 

Surprising to see the original purple essentially disappear.

 

I have some Tamiya clears, so this gives me ideas on what I can potentially accomplish on my translucent Bones.

I really appreciate all of the Tamiya Clear experiment threads you've done! I've started acquiring them myself since I want to amp up my transluscent Bones, so thank you for posting all of your results, they are most helpful! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Nice report! Oddly I used Purple Wash from Army painter on the Shadow & it didn't do half as good of shading like the Tamiya did for these. Being a car modeler & Tamiya being my favorite of that hobby I know the powers of the Clear colors (taillights, window tinting, etc etc) I've never had a color change like you did with this one thou.

You may have been the one who told me about the Clears a long time ago. I was working on a Pinewood derby car that was a police car, and I had asked here if anyone had any idea on making the light bar - I had a piece of clear sprue that was the right shape/size, but was trying to figure out how to tint it. Someone suggested using the Tamiya Clears, and they worked beautifully.

Splendid study, covering all the range and very well executed. I am sure you have given many a Reaperite an invaluable tool by this combination. I mean, I think I wouldn't be too wrong if I say that I am reflecting the opinion of the majorty herthat the Translucent bones have gained a whole new level in our eyes with this combination and we will be seeing its results on many a thread here soon..

 

All thanks to you!

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line.
       
      The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.
