Maledrakh's B4Core#120 Chibi Sophie

Recommended Posts

A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.

 

I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?

 

Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...

 

During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.

 

The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!

 

So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.

I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.

 

Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?

ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

Get her, Conan!  She’ll net you some good XP!

The eyes are very evil and intimidating.  Kind of the opposite of the allure I would expect from a succubus.  That being said, they fit!  Overall, you did a great job on her.

Love the paint job, but I can't take credit for that sculpt (but I would love to :)). I believe that was sculpted by Gene Van Horne.

      The banshee or female ghost is the one I think worked the best.
      Here I only drybrushed very very lightly with the Dungeon Slime, just to accent the raised details Then I used old Citadel Turquoise Glaze from the top to the waist, easying up a bit the further down I went with the brush. After that I used Old Citadel Blue Ink on and around the head and shoulders.  I used Orange Ink on the face and exposed flesh bits in front and wicking most of it away after a short while so that just a hint was left. I did some further light drybrushing with dungeon slime then pure white at the ends of the wispy trails. The wood was done in opaques, whatever browns, bones and greys were on my palette at the time, and given a dark grey wash. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.
       
       
      My schedule is increasingly packed these days, so painting time is getting scarce. These are even more speedpainted than usual, just minutes spent on each with some drying time in between.
      The Ghost Pirate subset that was added to the Bones 4 core set during the last day of the kickstarter campaign.

      These are made in translucent green material.
      The key to painting translucents are first to undercoat with clear varnish. I used Vallejo matte varnish through my airbrush. The varnish lets the paint adhere to the plastic and avoids a lot of grief with paint beading or running away from where you want it to go. Then paint with predominantly translucent paint such as inks.
       
      With these I tried a few different variations on how to paint them. First I gave them all a thin wash of Citadel Hexwraith Flame (the Nighthaunt green technical paint), making sure to wick up any pooling. This wash helped create some contrast, which in turn let me actually see some of the details.
      When dry, I used Vallejo Dark Grey Model Wash on the heads, exposed bone bits and other details on most of them. After this was dry, I went in with Reaper Dungeon Slime, a bright and pale green, with high density pigment. (Which really is not ideal for translucents, as this is a really opaque paint.) But I wanted to try this out. The results ...varied.
      I decided to quickly be done with them and covered the base in my autumn flock mix as usual.
      A little to quickly it seems, as there still is flock and static grass in unsightly places as seen in the photos. I will be removing said offending matter as soon as I can be bothered.

      This one I drybrushed more heavily (and also globbed some straight on) with the dungeon slime, and again with DS mixed with white ending lightly with pure white at the tips. The bottles were carfylly stained with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade wash, wiped off and then once again. The face and chest was the Dark Grey wash, and also some Reikland Fleshshade in the mouth-area. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.

      Here I went much more heavily in with the Dungeon Slime, and further mixes with white, and pure white at the edges. The head, chest, hands and sabre was given a dark grey wash. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. The dead man's chest was done in different browns and black metal.

      This one is really off centre because of the base. I have simply glued the integral bases to the 30mm rounds, which keeps the original off-centre feel of the model.
      Here is a simple drybrush with the dungeon slime, then with white. Dark Gray wash on the face, hair, hands and sabre. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.

      Here I have tried edge-highlighting, that is painting the edges directly with the brush and not drybrushing or similar other techniques. I am not really satisfied with the results, but live and learn. It would seem I have been a bit heavy handed or even missed what I have been aiming at here and there. The other bits are painted in the same way as above, apart fromt he monkey on his back that was first done in brown ink, but did not work. So I went over it with two tones of brown paint instead. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.
      Oh, and I used black ink on the eyepatch. The boathook was not painted with dark gray wash first, but just edge highlighted with Scalecolor Amethyst Metal.This makes it more ethereal I think.
      The shaft was given a stripe of dark brown.
