PostSubject: rascal's random minis thread   Sun 21 Feb 2010 - 4:21

hi y'all,

had this skaven lying around half painted for ages, and finally finished him
he's real old school, but I think he might make a nice leader




next is the kinda elven pit fighteresque female that was posted unpainted in the female mini's thread
I always found large areas of skin rather hard to paint, but I think I'm finally getting a bit the hang of it. With a lot of practice, I should be able to finally paint a decent large skin area.
The combination of pale elf flesh and black leather armour was a pain(t) in the butt ; think I spent 3 afternoons, painting the black and then cleaning up between the flesh
Eye shadow is another thing I'm not that good at, and lips are a complete disaster. Should search for a tutorial on that ...
The boots look a little better in real than on the picture ; the highlights seem to come out much less blended on the pic ... will have to look into that...

Great paintjob on that Skaven and the elf, even though I don't like the elf mini itself. The blending on the boot looks really great on the first picture, I trust the backside of the boot is just as good in real life!

Btw: zit u al in de Thunderbolts Gent?

I love the scaven! Great job on him. A perfect model indeed for the leader, with him carrying around the warp stones on his side.

I love your ability to paint the handel part of his weapon, looks like a real branch!

some hired muscle for my beastmen warband to come
(if anyone is willing to sell me 5 chaos hounds and some ungors, please pm me !)








and then my first attempt at a conversion from years back (my painting skills have slightly increased since then, but I like it since it was my first try. I took a GW high elf dragon rider and tried to turn him into this kind of dark elf lord. The dragon is a resin one from an old UK company (Scottish if I recall right) called Grendel.)

Your paint jobs are really good. I suspect even better than the pictures show. You may want to try slightly less light when you photograph, it looks like it's washing out some of the layers of paint, especially the skin.
In the past, I just threw a wet paper towel over my desk lamp. That seemed to get he best results.

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing.

I never thought of a wet paper towel, always useful info on this forums, learn something new.

I agree with all, love the minis and very eye popping colors that you use.

hi folks,

yeah, i know ; the pics aren't top notch photography
mostly i'm just too hurried to snap a shot and post it ; i'm lacking a bit of patience in that department (on the other hand, spending 20 to 30 hours on one simple mini isn't an exception for me ... aaarrrghhhh !)

oh well, here's the minelayer for my sons Hybrid game ; hope you like 'em despite the pic quality







suggestions on what i could have done better are welcome as always
(I know the base isn't quite mordheimy, but like i said ; it's for my son's hybrid game)

cheers y'all

VERY COOL! No matter how long it took it was time WELL SPENT! The source lighting effect is a nice touch. There's really nothing to critique. VERY WELL DONE!

the minelayer is very well painted so in order to find something to improve i have to dig deep.

i think some sort of blacklining could make him pop even more. some people lie that and some dont but if you are a "liker" you could try it out.

excelent blends on the cape!

thanks guys
one of these days i'll take a look into making kind of a picture box ... think i saw a tutorial here somewhere

Belzebub, i must have watched your witch hunters a zillion times as reference
such crisp paintjobs !
you truly are an artist !
if you have more fantasy mini's ; i'd love to see them, and i think i'm not the only one on this forum. Don't understand why you don't get higher ratings at cmon.

I recently came upon a site called Massive Voodoo ; they have lots of great pics and some nice tutorials ; all you painting maniacs should check it out :
http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/

cheers & have a nice weekend guys & gals

Yeah, i gotta agree with the above people. Great paintjobs! The minelayer is... exquisite! Using many strong colours really make models look great (I mostly use shades of brown and grey, so they look like... well mud... and puke. Also, I cant possible dream of ever painting as good as you, mate Smile )

oh yes Oph, you can !
i have no special skills whatsoever. The only thing i've got when it comes to painting mini's is an almost endless patience and a hunger to learn from the truly gifted
it all comes down to practice and knowledge
i got many ideas from watching the dvd's from Jeremy Teboul. Watching live images is quite something else compared to reading an explanation or tutorial !

Then I must work on my patience a little more I guess Smile

Were I to partake in a competition, id probably try harder, but otherwise, I always get so excited I paint a little too fast Razz

Thanks for the encouraging words, mate. And once more, bloody brilliant models!

mmmm ... don't get the impression the quality has improved much ...

oh well, here are some more mini's for my son

(a darksoul is kind of a human hull that got infested with a daemon, is partly made up of metal ... something like that, right ?
Well, ... imagine a witchhunter's band that got ambushed by a possessed warband
most of them got slaughtered, a few of them got sacrificed
....
but the dogs got caught by some lesser demons ...
could this be the result ... ?

I REALLY LOVE your painting style & color choices. As testament I can't merely go to the latest photos...I HAVE to work my way slowly down through ALL the photos & savor again the FINE minis. WONDERFUL STUFF!

What models did you use for those darksouls/ lesser daemons? Or more like: Where can I buy some?

hi Bob,

they were called Pests of Flesh and were part of the Hybrid game by Rackham. (french original name escapes me)
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/8515/hybrid
you might find it on ebay or on the sell out of some shops

I bought mine for 10 euros or so (the complete game WITH metal minis!!) at the french Ludikbazar site, but I just checked for you, and they no longer have it.

Thanks Pascal, they are definately a very interesting (read: 'great looking') set of models. The Orc Brutes also look great, and the whole lot have been painted very well.

first two pics have terrible lighting, but i'm not up to trying again
they are my first and last ever try at non metal metal

i'll try it the same as previous time : big pic of front, small one of back (you can click it to enlarge)






next an old barbarian, from before I knew how to fix bad casting surfaces with green stuff ...

not a terryfic paint job either ; think the undercoat gave me a hard time
