Darcstaar vs. Bones I, Ep. 10: Satheras

Recommended Posts

Starting up another, now that Janan is done.

Satheras, Male Warlock.  He had a really bent staff.  On the behind shot you can see I cut it off at the hand, wedged a bit out and re glued it into a straighter angle.  I also cut him off his integral base, since it had no texture.



Hoping to try to get a little better at OSL on him, with a green gem in the staff.

This is a wardrobe color test.  I do this sometimes when the clothing layers are tricky to figure out.  Case in point: two robes/skirts? And a cape?  And a mantle? And a cowl?  Sculptors: Please dumb down the layers, please!  I made the cowl, cape, and outer robe Dragon Black.  There is a weird boot-legging.  It’s Russet Brown along with the straps/belt/pouches and his...right shoulder armor?  The pants underneath are Templar Blue.  The under-robe, sleeve, and scrolls are Khaki Highlight.  The vest (or is it a petticoat with only one sleeve?) and it’s Demi-sleeve are Splattered Crimson.  The mantle is Stormy Grey.

I did that figure as part of a group: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60610-inquisitors/ 


Made his hood and cape and everything down the back one dark color, Nightshade Purple IIRC. Did the little vest in a different purple, and made all the lower robes grey-white.  It looks good enough for table play IMO.

Changed the mantle to black.


Flesh is a 1:1 mix of HD Elf Flesh:Olive Skin Shadow.

Washed with 1:1 Agrax Earthshade:Seraphim Sepia.

Took pics under the lamp to emulate the direction of light coming from the staff gem.

Done with skin.  Accentuated shadows mixing in Russet Brown and Dragon Black.

Highlighting with Elf Skin, Fair Skin and Dragon White.

      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.

      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...

      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.

      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.
      WIP here:




      And the group shot.  Enjoy.
