77168 BONES Battleguard Golem

Recommended Posts

Just a quick paint job I did a few months back.

I am still trying to learn True Metallic Metal technique.

Based on the pictures, I still have learning left to do.

There are some dilute black, blue, brown, and flesh colored washes in there.

His close up of his face reminds me of Ultron.

He is set to be a construct for our Reign of Winter Pathfinder campaign.

 

Enjoy.  C&C Welcome, as well as any advice or recipes for TMM would be appreciated.

Looks great, and you appeared to darken towards the feet again. Any tips on how you darkened your metallic? Just shading on top, or mix with metallics, or am I way off?

 

Thanks for the help, and beautiful work.

For him, it was multiple applications of washes of different colors and dilutions.  Then at the end I drybrushed the brightest metallic paint on the highest surfaces again.  Also, it is a Reaper Metallic Paint triad, I think, with Blackened Steel as the darkest color, and Mithril Silver as the lightest.

      Just pulled these out of the drawer.  One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines.  The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword.  So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3.  Those are darker grey.  Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry.  Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.

      I’ve been working on this dragon too.
      It has some serious lean.  In order to try to address this, I cut the front feet away from the back feet, and from each other.  I was hoping gluing the to the base separately would do it, but no!

      Still serious lean.
      I decided to pin the feet to the base, but as I played with it, realized the back feet, left and right front feet would all have to be at different levels.  
       

      It’s now straight and erect.  I had to chop and reposition the tail for this, or else the tip dipped below the level of the base.  Now I need to sculpt green stuff supports around these pins.  Then I’ll try to turn them in to rocks.

      Starting up another, now that Janan is done.
      Satheras, Male Warlock.  He had a really bent staff.  On the behind shot you can see I cut it off at the hand, wedged a bit out and re glued it into a straighter angle.  I also cut him off his integral base, since it had no texture.
       



      Hoping to try to get a little better at OSL on him, with a green gem in the staff.

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Brought some painting models for vacation.  Finished the Hell Hound last night, didn’t WIP it.
       
      Had Yephima on my shelf of shame for a long time.  If it ends up 1/100 as good as the studio version I’ll be happy.  Plan on light blue skin and silvery hair, like the Bestiaries suggest.  Other than that, not sure...

       
      Here she is primed with Brown Liner.  That’s gonna take some work to get the skin tones brighter.
