Deus Vult! Militi Christi Bust by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

Time to paint another bust.

This one is from El Greco 1:12th scale and comes in a nice tin.

 

A depiction of a seasoned Crusader.

I will paint him as a Knight Hospitaller instead of the often seen Knight Templars.

 

This means mine will have a Black Cape, A Red Surcoat and a White Cross.

Adding to my first comment - for this bust, I want you to go with a bit more shading and highlighting on certain parts, like clothing and hair. Even washing and drybrushing will do!

   

FABER FIT FABRICANDO! NO EXCUSES! DEUS VULT!

 

And something I forgot ... oh, yeah:

I will go for deep shadows and bright highlights.

 

Just removed the flash ( not much) and washed him to remove any residue.

Start!

 

Let's begin with laying down some heavy shadow colours and outline the cross on the surcoat

 

Scale 75 Decay Black for the Chainmail

 

Scale 75 Flat Black for the Cape

 

Mix of Scale 75 Deep Red and Decay Black for the Surcoat.

 

The black will be smoothed later.

No internet for most of the day.

More work on the Crusader, the more I looked at it the less I thought the cross was good enough.

So it's gone for now.

Maybe I'll add just the top.

 

Lots of rough work still, but were getting some colours.

The purple will be blackened/darkened later.

That came out Purple for my purpose, so I repainted that with a mix of Scale 75 Deep Blue and Decay Black.

Used Andrea White nr. 3 o outline a new cross.

And gave him a nice plinth.

More white on the cross.

Some shadows on the skin to be glazed and painted over later.

 

Basics of the eyes.

Slowly getting there, he needs lots more work!

But I think you can see where this is going.

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      I hope this is ok as it is outside the fantasy/sci-fi realm but this is what I've been working on while taking a break from the Bones 4 core set. This is a 1/10 bust from Young Miniatures sculpted by Young B. Song, Templar Knight YH1837.

      On top of the Sherman Jumbo, I have a new project. This is Frozen Ninja 3D's resin bust of a cloaked gal holding a small flaming dragon. I picked it up ReaperCon last fall.
       
      There are four parts: a base, a robed torsos, a hooded head, and a pair of arms holding the dragon. Over the casting was good, but there were some issues with the resin sheaving (splitting off in layers) in the arms and the underside of the torso. These were sanded down, the given a layer of putty, then further sanded down. You can see the putty in the pics.
       
      I also hollowed out the sleeves and a portion of the hood. These were filled in almost to the opening. I used a Dremel tool and ball cutters to hollow them out and tried to match the inside with the exterior folds.
       
      One unique (to me) thing is the base; there is a two-leve' base with some symbols on it, and small stone house built on top of that. The roof structure is built into the torso's back. It sure beats the usual brass rod...
       
      Pics are where I'm at so far.
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.
