PostSubject: Brother Maynard, Warrior Priest, and his friends.   Wed 28 Sep 2011 - 18:53

Hello all! Sir, yes sir! I haven't been by in quite some time since I've been doing mostly non-mordheimy things of late, but I have done some characters that I thought I'd share incase people might like them, or get inspired for new characters and whatnot.

Some of these will be seeing service in my Empire army, but most were made as player characters for a tabletop dungeon crawl I'm working on (using Songs of Blades and Heros, or Broadsword Adventures) and plan to run for my friends this winter.

First up is a monk from Spyglass miniuatures I just finished, that I think would make a great warrior priest or witchhunter type:



Next, a pile of magic users, that could see service as hired swords wizards, warlocks, etc:

Old citadel:


More Spyglass:


Red Box Games:


One of my favorites little projects from this year, a great earth wizard from Gorgon Studios:


And then some fighters that could maybe find use in various warbands- kislev/marienberg human, goblin, elf...

Red Box Games barbarian:


Hasslefree palladin type:


Some dwarves, hasslefree and RBG:




A couple goblins (spyglass and hasslefree):




And a ranger from RBG, but I can't remember if she's supposed to be an elf, or human:


Anyway. . . Just wanted to say hi and let all you fine folks know that I'm still painting when I can get the chance, even if it isn't all directly for mordheim projects. Hope you enjoy! Smile

Your sense of color is simply amazing. Wet blending?

Very, very good stuff! The crystal globe on the RBG sorcerer is splendid, and the cloth looks great on all models. You've really done wonders with the hasslefree paladin, excellent metals. Thanks for showing us!

Great miniatures & beautiful painting! Like Folketsfiende, I wonder how you painted the globe on wizard's staff.

Thanks for the comments, all! Very kind. Smile

I did him with your standard gemstone shading (light at the bottom, dark at the top) but I did it in grey scale with just black and white. I then glazed it in Tamiya Clear Blue (which dries glossy), and added a bright white dot for reflection.

Sometimes. Usually just normal blending though. sometimes thin, sometimes thick. Whatever works at a given time.

You've got quite an attractive mix of minis that share the common trait of being BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. All are VERY IMPRESSIVELY DONE! thumbsup

Since all your minis are finished pieces, you could, if you wish, have the thread transplanted in the Gallery Section. Keeping it here would generate the same degree of interest as the Gallery with the benefit of allowing you to put up W.I.P. pieces. Whatever you decide, I'll be delighted to assist. clown

Great paintjob on all of them, though my favorite is the female paladin, the armour is a super paintjob!

Oh wow, these skin tones are envy-inspiring. In fact, great colors all around--very earthy and natural. Thanks for sharing!

Would you be so kind as to talk about your process for shading up black? I continue to fail miserably at it, and Brother Maynard's cowl looks exactly like the effect I would like to produce. Thanks!

Montegue-

Sorry for the poor picture here, but my camera seems to be having trouble with auto focus on white, and the good camera is out with the wife.

Anyway, here is an example of what I used on the monk:



Mostly pretty dark blacks with a trace of blue/grey to lighten them.

The left is pure black, then three shades of lighter grey/blue, then one on the right for a highlight.

After that I used a little black wash (either badab black or vallejo black ink, i forget which in this case, but I'm guessing vallejo due to the deeper nature of the shading) thinly over it all to smooth out the transitions, and then one more, in more concentrated deep areas, and the curves under the highlighted creases, to make shadows.

Not too much too it. . . the trick was really to not overly highlight it Wink

Thanks!
