Okay, so maybe he's not smelling his cloak. But it sure did make a fun alternate for why he's posed like that.
I didn't do my normal battle report because i neglected to take photos while i was going. I'm happy with this guy. Kept it very very simple. I'll still have to base him and a little clean up on the cloak, but overall I'm happy with him.
Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it. I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought.
As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal. Dang it!
I made the bands on the blade smaller.
Added more metal details.
Added more accent color.
Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great.
His backpack gave me some trouble. I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off. Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.
Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure. I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.
I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!
Hello all you Reapertoniks!
Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!
Got another one in this week. I'm on a roll!
Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like. I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black. I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White. We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
This one came out pretty good.
I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that. Enough for me to post in WIP.
The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots. I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.
