Finished up one of my first bones 4 minis. The unnamed big brother to the bones 3 barbarian.
He's a simple table top job, though I probably could have shaded a few details more. Like his bracelet.
I used an ink wash too shade the fur of his cloak and loin cloth. It worked great except they are now both very shiny. I could tone them down with some matte sealer, bit I think I'm just going to declare them magical.
Someone's grumpy today.
here he is with his unfinished little brother. Little brother's weapons ate a bit mor floppy unfortunately. They'll likely take a few hot water baths to fix.
Also did a quick speed paint of two statues. Not sure were the other column is at the moment, but this one was out while I was painting the angel of death so it got paint too.
She fit very snuggly into that base. I'm debating whether or not she'll stay in it.
The pair. Also the angel without the base.
The sculpt of the fat goblin boss barking orders has a lot of character. Since the mini is covered in armour, it seemed like a good candidate to try some different NMM techniques on.
The NMM was done with a stippling rather than normal blending for the most part. The idea was it was supposed to be a bit work and rough, since it was worn by a goblin.
It worked out well overall. It's also probably faster then other NMM techniques. Glazes also help hide the transitions. The scratches also helps hide transitions. Still took a long time. This guy took a full day and a half just to do the armour.
The skin tone was inspired the art of Paul Bonner, who paint goblin skin with desaturated purples and pinks. Not sure if I fully achieved the effect, but it looks good.
Really happy with it overall. The NMM is so bright that it takes the attention away from the sections where I haven't put in as much effort, like the leather and the axe handle. Might some back to it, but still got hundreds more minis from Bones 4 to go so he's going on the finished shelf for now.
We are going to visit my BILs home next week so I wanted to make something to thank them. Fortunately his wife adores penguins so an idea was born.
On the ice flows of the Antarctic the penguins fight a constant war of survival. But when things look grim and the darkest night seems to turn against them one penguin will rise above the others to smite their foes and have the way through the darkness.
When she appears the others are driven to seek out the ancient battle gear, the location passed down by generations of penguins and like drones they come to anoint their emperor and dress him to do battle with his foes...
On a side note, the bonsium in bones 4 is much harder to cut and I am afraid I made a rather large offering to the blood god of miniatures. Fortunately I didn't nick any of the working bits. Unfortunately it was close and I am going to feel it in the morning.
