Bones 4 core set #20. Could not find a release # for him yet. I took this guy and a few of his pals to Reapercon to work on in my spare time (ha!) and got him base coated using some of the new Pathfnder paint set. I couldn't help but notice the chickens and the look of terror on his face, thus the name. Finished him with a basic drybrush and wash for table top play.
Presenting Volturnos, a character from the Idoneth (or Sea Elf) faction in the Warhammer:- Age of Sigmar game by Games Workshop.
Not my best work, I struggled in quite a few places (particularly with the fish) so a lot of it has ended up being painted rather basically, even by my standards.
But I did get it finished, so I'll count this as a partial victory.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon. This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together. I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC.
I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills. I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go.
I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already. I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right.
I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro. I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better.
I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting. I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places. I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller.
Thanks for taking a look. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already.
Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.
A couple more of my recent tabletop paints. Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4. She is in a leaning pose. The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue. Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.
This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim.
This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif.
Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.
