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. ::):

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!

      My stash will arrive today!
      I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy.
      I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept.
       
      I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot).  A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to be. That said it does have a mundane monster  origin story.......wait, say, lets make a game of it!
       
      Which "old school" monster served as the primary inspiration for the Whispering Ghoulsbane? take a guess.
       
      Wait wait wait! it's here, at this very moment! Delivery! let the prepping begin.
      Step 1: Open the bag.

      That is all for now.

      Presenting the Sewer Golem (and his fishing buddy Cuttleberry) a monster from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Took a surprisingly long time to paint considering it's all washes and drybrushing, but I had fun, that's the main thing.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      this back in February for the tabletop - used some colorshift paint for Greenstuff to add a little interest - not totally pleased with the eye glow, but it was time to move on.

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.
