Buglips and Guindyloo paint Dungeon Dwellers 07002: Baran Blacktree

Recommended Posts

@Guindyloo I really like the work you've done on the cloak.  I can also totally empathize with the pushing yourself and then losing desire to paint.  I don't want to think about the abandoned WIP's I have out there on this forum.  Glad to see you finishing up this fella, if nothing else than for the cloak alone.

Yeah, that cloak looks amazing!! Like the shiniest silk cloth. And I like the armor too, it looks used and real. 

-and Im glad you’re back from radio-silence, I really like these threads, they’re so indpirational.

At least I'm really happy with the cloak. It took way longer than it should have and it's not perfect, but I'm happy with that part and that's something.

 It's Beautiful! I want to wear that cloak!

We'd hoped to catch up to the current month and do all of the new DD as they come out, but our workloads make that unfeasible.  So we'll be mixing Dwellers in with other WIPs we do as time allows.  I can guarantee, however, that we will definitely be doing those sweet, sweet DD goblins.   

 

I'm glad you're liking the threads!

Alright, since I'm just in get it done mode, I have been slowly whittling away at getting him painted. I'm sorry it's taking so long, but thank y'all for the supportive comments, I really appreciate it.

So let me catch y'all up to where I'm at with him.

 

First of all, the moldy look of the armor bothered me too much, so I ended up entirely painting over it all. I think it looks better in person and in pictures, so I'm glad that I did it. It is now looking a little thick, but that's not surprising considering how many layers of paint wound up on that thing. Oh well. I painted over the armor again with Brown Liner and then basecoated with Warcolours Metallic Choco, then highlighted up with Warcolours Metallic Brown and then I added a little bit of GW Sigmarite to the Metallic Brown for the highest highlights. Lastly, I shaded with Secret Weapon Rust Shadow.

Things could be smoother, but like I said, there's already way too much paint on there so I'm admitting defeat on the armor and moving on.

Next up I decided to go with an orangey red for the cloth bits, so I basecoated with MSP Rusty Red. This is a paint from the HD line and I happen to have a picture of the basecoat because I wanted to show Buglips how well it covered in ONE COAT OVER BROWN LINER.

I don't know about y'all, but I know what paint I'll be reaching for in the future whenever I need to basecoat a red.

 

So from there I highlighted the red by mixing in MSP Phoenix Red with the Rusty Red, then I added a little bit of MSP Lava Orange, then I added a little bit of MSP Candlelight Yellow. Then I glazed over all of that with MSP Clear Red.

Then for the trim of the cloth and the rope across his chest, I basecoated with MSP Palomino Gold, then shaded with a mix of that and MSP NMM Gold Shadow. The highlighting was done by mixing MSP NMM Gold Highlight into the Palomino Gold and then glazed over with Candlelight Yellow.

The boots and gloves are just basecoated with MSP Mahogany Brown. I don't recall what silver paint I used for the chainmail as it appears that I actually put away a bottle of paint right after using it for once. Shocking, I know.

 

Also, not pictured, I finally remembered that the shield arm existed, so I started basecoating areas of that.

Looks like I need to give Mahogany Brown another try, loving it in these pics.

I'm sorry to hear that Mahogany Brown hasn't treated you well in the past. It's one of my favourite paints ever. Like if the apocalypse happens and I only have time to grab 5 paints to preserve for man kind, I'm grabbing MSP Mahogany Brown, MSP Moth Green, MSP Candlelight Yellow, Secret Weapon Rust Shadow and Warcolours One Coat Beige.

Its not that it has gone bad, it’s just that I keep forgetting it’s there in the first place :unsure:

Yeah, when you have 100+ paints several do tend to be forgotten.  :rolleyes:

I think it's pretty cool getting to see two of the same figure being painted in two different fashions; really cool idea for a thread/series. Kudos to both of you!:winkthumbs:

 

@Guindyloo---It sounds like you're not too thrilled with him, but I think he's still coming out very nicely.::):

      Hi everyone, after sitting five months on the shelf, that being the projet (not me)  I finally found time to complete my Gnolls display base. The base is 7.25 inches x 11 inches wide. Here are some pictures.
      Other pictures of the Gnolls can be found here.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture).
      I will now work on a display base for them.

      Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry.

      Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.)

      Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner.
      Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up.

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"

      It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season.
      So I am getting back on track with some Orcs.  These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10.
      There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them.
      I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis.

      lots of pictures below
