Aku-chan Embraces The Future!

Recommended Posts

With the Kingdom Death range seemingly moving towards 3D printed minis for their non-game stuff, I reluctantly picked up a pair (My only previous experience with a 3D printed mini being a very anime-styled witch I got from Ebay. I opened the package, looked at the tiny mini encased in a giant mass of web-like filaments, had a flashback to trying to clean Forgeworld resin minis (The triangles! To this day they haunt me still!) and shoved her straight back on Ebay.):-




(Astri the Promised is the big one, the other is Badar the Venomous).


Fortunately, these ones were nowhere near as bad!

They'd already been given a pretty good tidy up, so all I had to do was remove any remaining nubs and give them a good scrub with a wet toothbrush.


Hopefully they'll be dry by tomorrow, so they can be assembled and undercoated.

Have fun.


They should assemble with regular superglue & normal primer methods.


I will!





They're now assembled, undercoated, based and given a Brown Wash.

No problems so far (I did manage to drop Astri and snap the tip off her bow, but it glued back on easily enough), if anything I think they've been easier to prep than normal resin due to the lack of mold-lines. So I guess I'll still be buying Kingdom Death minis if they stop producing resin versions (Oh noes! Buying more minis, how terrible!).


Now on to the hard part, painting!

Finally did some painting:-




Astri's cape is done (It's still a little wet in the piccy), this started as a base of Stormy Blue/Pure Black, then a drybrush of Stormy Blue, then the outside bot further drybrushes of Stormy Blue/Ghost Grey and 1:2 Stormy Blue/Ghost Grey, everything then got a Black Wash, re-did the 1:2 Stormy Blue/Ghost Grey drybrush, then it all got a Blue Wash.




Badar got some skin.

This is a base of Barbarian Flesh, then Flesh Wash, then Barbarian Flesh and finally 6:1 Barbarian Flesh/Light Flesh.

Going by the concept art he's supposed to have a little goatee, but I think he looks better without.




Made a start on his coat, with a base of Magic Blue on the outside and 1:3 Magic Blue/Stormy Blue on the inside.


Getting tired so left it there, can't remember how to paint big, flowy cape things at the mo'.

Getting back to this.




Astri got a (Somewhat washed out) face.

This was a base of Rosy Flesh, then Flesh Wash, then highlights of Rosy Flesh and 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh.

She's got a very fine scar across one eye that I tried to pick out with 1:1 Light Flesh/Scarlett Red.

Her lips are 1:1 Light Flesh/Warlord Purple with an Off-white highlight dot, and a bit more Flesh Wash between the lips.

Tried giving her eyes, even on a lady this big I found it a struggle.
