77514 Iron Golem - Bones

That looks amazing!  Which color shift paint did you use on this guy?  I looked at them but had a hard time picturing them on a mini.  This works really well.  You paint a gloss black basecoat and then apply, right?  Did you airbrush or just brush it on?

 

If you don’t mind me asking, what paints/process did you use to achieve the tarnished metal look on the rest of him?

Very nice. The metallics look awesome, and having just a few places with the color shift effect makes it really stand out.

 

Thanks!

 

Agreed, I didn't want to overdo it. Less is more I think.

The colourshift paint used was Greenstuffworld's "Psychotic Illusions". Yes, painted over a gloss black base. I brushed it on & gave it several very thin coats until the effect started to happen (as recommended by GSW) , I think I did 5 coats for good measure! The paint is quite fluid, goes on very easily & dries quickly.

 

As for the other paints, it's all Coat d'arms except for some Citadel "shade" paint. Oh & it's mostly (carefully) drybrushed on............ahem :poke:.

I'm sure you could easily find similar colours from your favourite paint manufactures so I'll give a rough colour description also.

 

1. Gloss black basecoat - Vallejo Game Color

2. Heavy (wetish) drybrush all over leaving some black visible in the shadows - CDA Magic Metal 113 (very dark brown brassy metallic)

3. Lighter, more careful drybrush on the iron sections leaving some Magic Metal still visible - CDA Chainmail 109 (mid tone silver)

4. Edge highlighting on the iron sections - CDA Silver 220 (high tone silver)

5. Careful drybrush on the brass sections - CDA Dwarven Bronze 143 (mid tone reddish bronze, not too coppery)

6. Edge highlighting on the brass sections - CDA Bronze 232 (high tone bronze)

7. Wash applied selectively to the feet & heels for rust effect - Citadel Shade "Fuegan Orange"

8. The colourshift paint was done last after re-blacking those areas.

 

Hope this helps!

Nice.  I am assuming the blue is a heat stress effect similar what you see in stainless steel that has been exposed to a really hot fire? If so I suggest adding a tinge of purple and maybe even bronze to it.  Notice the fire torched head on this spider.  (best example I could find quickly lol),  I want to do this to mine know that I've seen yours now. lol.

Yes, It is a bit like that.

 

I'm not sure if adding more colours on top would work (unless maybe they are also colourshift paints) as the effect moves around depending on the ambient light & viewing angle, the colours aren't set "in place" as such. You can best see this in effect on the kneecap in the different pics. It's something I will definately experiment with next time though. ::):

      I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
      With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
      He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
      She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
      Any critique and criticism is always welcome.

      Bob Ridolfi's Graveflesh Servant (aka Bride of Frankenstein) in Bones.  I tried to get some different flesh tones on her various parts, do some bruising at the wounds, and not-exactly-sheer fabric effects.  Spent far less time on it than I should have.

      The Left Hand of Darkness here is from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion. I painted this one at the same time as the Bones 4 female devil, as they make a fine pair.  Speaking of fine pairs, you will need to click the links to see, as the titilation offered by a shapely two inch piece of plastic might be harmful to minors.

      A slight Angela from Spawn vibe going here. Not sure what about this mini that makes me think of that character.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      My Weird West campaign included the town of Lovelace, a steampunk bastion of order run by a Babbage engine of limited omniscience. Several of the citizens were clockwork-and-punchtape automata. 

      Meet Citizen Rustbuckets, one of the oldest inhabitants! I love Stonehaven sculpts almost as much as I hate paying for them. Look at that benign goggle-eyed face and its genial steam-shovel underbite! He's here next to HLPr-bot, featured previously.  
       

       
      And here's Marshall Crusher, the very long steam-powered arm of the law. I tried to make it look like he's got a boiler in there.
       

       
      Here's a sampling of the human and automaton population (in two shots because focus is hard).
