A brush day, a chestnut day. Paint for ruin and the worlds end.


Recommended Posts

Having painted a certain number of orcs I've decided that I better get onto my Riders of Rohan force.  They are a combination of Footsore's germanic tribes and some Riders from GW's new starter box.  Started with some horses:

In front are some bare horses from Eureka that I used to test some schemes.  They are quite tiny but should make good objective markers.  This is the guide I used.

 

I have 8 more horses and am thinking I need some more Bay and Brown horses.

      I realize it's not the weekend, but the week was quite busy and I'm happy to have got any of this done at all.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      This little wizard's focus for me was going to be brighter colors and trying to do skin and hair better.  I think it came out pretty well.
       
      Wins:
      *  The base color of red tone and highlighting upward to flesh tone seems to be a good mix.  
      *  Keeping to adjacent colors on the color wheel made for a pleasing, eye-catching combo.  I have to say using the reds, oranges, and browns was pretty fun.
      *  I did as much highlighting and avoiding washes as I could.  This has been my practice over the last number of models I've done.  I don't get how the videos show people just splashing it on for amazing results.  I don't get it, can't seem to do it the same, so I resort to taking more time on starting dark and going light.  Much like Dr. Faust's painting videos.  I've learned much from watching him.
      *  Mixing paints is getting better.  I used like colors to lighten and highlight and I'm getting a better balance and understanding of how they may look really different wet, but getting to know how they dry and differs greatly.  
      *  The eyes worked better going in order of black first, white second, black third.  I was doing a white, black, white and it made the eyes look weird.  @Inarah pushed me to try something different and it's been working better.  
      *  The brown hair with little highlights came out good and I'm trying to be very light in my touch to get subtle look versus stark.  Win!
       
      Misses: 
      *  The staff is okay.  I tried to give it like some kind of weathered look or cool effect at the end, but it just didn't sing like I had hoped.
      *  On the back of his cape, there's a part that I tried shading inf that just didn't look believable to the eye.  I tried to hit it a few times to catch the light and how to lighten the edgest, but it was lost on me.  Fail.
      *The skin on his hand held out has a funny look to it up close.  I tried to bring out some of pads of his fingers and palm, but it doesn't look as good as I had hoped.
       
      Overall it's another win, and I'm happy with the results.

      I can stop buying orcs at any time, I promise...
       
      But for now I have a few boxes of plastic Uruk Hai from GW.

      Here they are being glued to washers
       
      And some test models, testing both a color scheme and different primers (as you can see).   Basecoated 
       
      Then washed

       
      The pikes: Basecoated 

      Then washed

      I have these plastic LotR mini busts for practice before going to a fancy one. Got 10 for $15 or so on Ebay a while back. The material is gummy, unlike Bones, and even a sharp Xacto doesn't take off mold lines. But hey, cheap practice! 
       
      Work so far on Elrond.
