Echoes of Death:- The Fighter WIP

Recommended Posts

Started working on the Echoes of Death set. I have the whole set, but I also have an appalling track record when it comes to actually finishing my Kingdom Death figures, so I'm just building and painting them one at a time.

 

Starting with the Fighter (who's gigantic):-

So far, I've made a start on her skin:-

It's a basecoat of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Shade Wash.

 

I stopped here and took a piccy so I could get some idea of where her eyes are, I think buying some sort of magnifier is in my future.

Great start.

Good news, she’s got no eyes!

Seriously, I can’t see any eyes under her hair.

 

Just because no one can see them doesn't mean they're not there ::D:

 

Progress:-

Finished off her skin with highlights of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin and 1:1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin, also basecoated her hair in Warlord Purple to frame her face better.

Then I attempted to paint her danged eyes.

It took a few tries but I finally managed a decent right eye (it was more luck than skill), the left one though is about 2/3's obscured by hair and my poor brain can't grasp the idea of painting a bit of a eye (plus my hands aren't really up the painting an area that small), so all attempts ended with her having a giant eye filling the whole space. In the end, I decided it was best to just leave it flesh coloured and hope no one notices.

 

And now I'm too shaky for any more painting today.

Progress:-

Highlighted up her hair (1:1 Warlord Purple/Squid Pink > Squid Pink > 1:1 Squid Pink/Off-white), thinking about making a Warlord Purple wash to smooth things out, but I'm not sure, going to come back to it after dinner.

Thanks everybody!

 

Finally felt perky enough to do a bit of painting today:-

I knocked back the highlights on her hair a bit with a glaze of Warlord Purple.

Then I painted up her Lantern Armour boots (Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel) with (Bronze > Brown Wash > Bronze) spiky bits and (Brown Leather > Brown Wash > Brown Leather > 1:1 Brown Leather/Bonewhite) straps.

I've made a start on her two-tone stocking tops, they're Magic Blue and Scarlett Red with a Brown Wash so far.

The skin tone is perfect right now. Are you using MSP?

 

Thanks!

No, at this point I've pretty much totally moved over to the Vallejo paint range.

 

 

Progress:-

She's a little shiny because I forget to take piccys before varnishing.

Finished off her stocking tops with another coat of either Magic Blue or Scarlett Red.

Then I painted her Screaming Fur skirt (1:1 Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow > Ochre Yellow > 1:2 Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite > Sepia Wash), with the inside of the skirt being 2:1 Old West Rose/Leather Brown with a Sepia Wash. There was also part of strap (Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Bonewhite) with a Brassy Brass buckle.

 

Next, her bag of mystery.

A rather late thanks!

 

The dice have chosen this one to come back to the table:-

 

Od8LSGb.jpgPYifuI1.jpg

 

Painted her mystery bag, the outside is Steel Grey, shaded with Steel Grey plus two brushtipfuls of Pure Black and highlighted with 1:1 Steel Grey/Wolf Grey.

The inside is Parasite Brown, shaded with Brown Wash, highlighted with Parasite Brown and 1:1 Parasite Brown/Iraqi Sand and glazed with thinned Parasite Brown.

I also painted her belts and bag tie (Leather Brown > Brown Wash > Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash)  with Bronze studs and face-buckle.

Then I broke her headband again (for the fourth or fifth time), so I set her down while the glue dried.

Then I started on her various cloth bits using the same Steel Grey scheme as her bag.

 

...Then I broke her headband again.

Not reattaching it until I'm finished this time.

Progressing slowly:-

 

RekfL5J.jpgkGCT3Ez.jpg

 

Finished her arm wraps with with straps of Beastly Brown > Brown Wash > 1:1 Beastly Brown/Ochre Yellow, shoulder and torso armour in Red Leather > Brown Wash > Red Leather > 1:1 Red Leather/Ochre Yellow, and some Brown Leather straps with Brassy Brass studs and hoops.

 

I would have gotten a bit further, but I keep finding bits I've missed hiding under her hair.

      I finished this Mountain Troll.  It's kind of ironic, I painted him so he gets off my shelf of shame but due to his forward lean pictures were difficult so he is photographed literally ON my shelf of shame .  It's not just a shelf, I also have bins of shame in the closet but that's another topic.  I originally thought I'd give him a rocky hide and a paler fleshy underbelly but the underbelly turned out a lot darker than my original thoughts, but I still like it anyway.  The closeups show the transition between that tone and the hide, it's on his inner arms and upper inner thighs as well because that seemed natural to me.  The thing I am unhappy with is that he doesn't "pop".  I really liked the look of the craggy hide and how he looked after the Strong Tone wash so I was too scared to highlight him very much because I was afraid to ruin it.  I don't drybrush very well and when I layer I feel like I'm stumbling along in the dark so you can see one layer on his hide and the rest is just some edge highlights.  I'm still working on layering but it seems hard.  Anyway, on to the pictures.  Hope you guys like him.

      "Umm... Guys, I think I've found our missing team members."
       
      Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one.
       
      Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hi everyone, here's another 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior. The original version this time. This model was sculpted by Tre Manor.

      In pursuit of my goal, here is another Gnoll that I finished painting last night. This 77234, Boneflail female Gnoll Cleric was sculpted by Tre Manor.
      In spite of their devotion to Yeenoghu, few Gnolls have any interest in ritual and there is few clerics or shamans to be found among the savage packs. Gnolls would sometimes summon demons to fight alongside them.
