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:






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.

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?



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







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:-




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:-




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.

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!

      Keith is very happy that he joined the Cult of the Obsidian Otter. He's met lots of like-minded people, he's getting plenty of fresh air and all that axe-swinging is building his upper body strength.
      And the fact he can't get She Sells Sanctuary out of his head is just a bonus.

      A little while ago, I got a full set of metallic paints in vibrant primary colors.  I immediately felt like there was huge potential to this- you could use them to add all sorts of extra depth and interest to True Metallic techniques.
      And one of the things that struck me was the idea that you could use them for feathers.  With many birds, feathers already have a sort of metallic shine to them, so it isn't too crazy to consider using true metallic techniques to express this.
      While I initial was afraid that it would be hard to keep the phoenix from looking inanimate -like a bronze statue of a bird, rather than a bird.  To my surprise, I didn't have to do a lot of corrections for this, since the mini really never was in much danger of looking too inorganic.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!
