I'm supposed to be painting HeroQuest Goblins.
Which naturally means I'm painting anything else (Mystic Circle, Thing in the Well, Mumlak, and Demonic Lasher). But at least I'm painting!
First up was a bit of repair. Mumlak's adze was broken when it arrived, but a quick pin later and he's almost as good as new! I should have run the knife along the tusks while I was at it. But I didn't.
I wasn't sure where I was going with this guy, I was originally going to go with a dark brown for the bare flesh. But that just felt like it would be way too much brown for my taste. I eventually defaulted to the Neutral Greys triad starting at "Cloudy Grey" instead of "Stormy". I knew I'd be using the Stone Greys on the adze, so didn't want to duplicate colors.
The fur got a base coat of Pure Black and a dry brush of Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, Leather Brown, and Tanned Leather.
The tusks are, rather unsurprisingly, the Ivory Bone triad.
The skull topper on the jug and the femur are Bone Colors, the bird skulls will be the Neutral Bone triad.
Drybrushing, so much drybrushing.
Rainy Grey on top of the Cloudy Grey. Misty Grey on top of that. The finger and toe nails are solidly applied Misty Grey.
The tusks have gotten the rest of the Ivory Triad.
The adze got its Shadowed Stone and Stone Grey drybrushing.
The bird beaks are the Golden Skin triad. I don't know if the beaks should be more yellow than the rest of the skull, but that's the way I'm doing it.
The jug is getting the "Yellow Ochre" treatment. I think I'm going to use the Terran Khaki triad on the shells on the jug, although it looks halfway decent with just the liner/wash mix.
I still need to figure out the cordage, earrings, and "washers" on the cordage down by the jug. And there might be a surprise or two as well.
Thanks for dropping by!
This is one of the Townsfolk from the Bones 4 core set, sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
I tried a couple of new things on this one. I used clears (Magenta and Phthalo Blue) and Pure White to paint the dress, and the most complicated skin recipe I’ve ever used (3 Reaper and 3 S75 paints). The face turned out pretty well, so I decided to try painting makeup for the first time - she’s a courtesan after all. Also freehanded shoulder blades.
This is another mini that was meant to be a quick RCL paint job, but sort of grew legs. In retrospect I wish I’d gotten the metal version - I couldn’t do much with that seal flipper of a hand 🤣
palette with skin colors (front 2 rows):
Back after a long-ish hiatus. I had to take a break from painting earlier this year because of some eye issues. No that I can see right again, I wanted to take a simple-ish mini to completion. I used the RCL limited palette theme for July.
While the paint job on these maggots can be better, it's gratifying to be back to doing something I enjoy immensely.
I started these Minitaurs months ago, and wanted to paint them like the Khazra from the Diablo video games. I abandoned work on them earlier this year when I took a break from painting for health reasons. At this point I'm kinda jaded and just wanted them off my table. The leader's wrist wraps are too bright, and I might go back and add shadows to tone those down, but otherwise I'm done with these.
