Darcstaar vs. Bones I: Ep. 5 Deladrin

Recommended Posts

Here is the next project for “Try to paint all the things!”

 

I plan to paint her as a very light skinned elf.  I might try an Autumnal color scheme.

A little miscast of the face, on her right.  Colors were reapplication of Amber Gold, Golden Blonde, Linen White and HD Solid White.  I decided to try to fudge the miscast right face by painting it into shadow.  I mixed Amber Gold with Red Liner.  That wasn’t dark enough, so I did the same with Brown Liner.  I think she needs some color on her cheeks, lips, and eyebrows to soften her face...

Thank you.

@Original_CarlYou totally can achieve it.  Brown Liner first.  Then Linen White, trying to get just the center.  If you hit the line of Brown Liner with the white, just touch up the brown from the outside in.  Then a dot of Brown Liner for the iris/pupil.  Start from the middle of the eye and paint up toward the top Brown Liner line.  It’s OK to get it on the rest of the face, as you paint the eyes first then clean up the shape with the face Base Coat.  It used to take me 3-4 tries per eye.  With practice and magnification, and a little planning toward direction of gaze, I can usually do it on the first try.

 

Here she is with straight HD Rosy Pink on the lower lip, and 2 layers of very dilute Rosy Pink on the left cheek.  I also added one layer to the tip of the nose.

 

The cheek may need a little toning down.  Will think on it.

My idea is she has a reversible cloak for each season.  It’s currently Autumn.  The outer part will be Autumn woodland Camo.  The inner part will be black.  I also deepened the shadow on the right side of the face.

I was wondering how you would deal with the slight miscast to her mouth. The shadow is a fine solution.

I love watching your creations evolve. You really do inspiring work.

To go along with the Ranger-y theme, I painted her studded leather armor.  I’m imagining all her armor is studded leather, but I can’t explain away what looks like a chainmail bikini bottom.  I hope it doesn’t look dumb when that is painted as steel.  The other studded parts for the leather is going to be brass, as are the cloak hardware, knee pads, etc.  This is two coats of thin Tanned Leather.

It occurred to me that the straight thing in the folds of her cloak was meant to be a scabbard.  So that’s what it is now.  Russet Brown.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      Hello everyone, sorry for this guy lack of decent clothing. I guess it makes sense to be dressed like this when you're a slave fighting in the scorching arena of Thule.
      This Warlord 14652, Necropolis Chattel model was sculpted by Stefan Niehues.

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
