Monday Miniatures: Delayed Edition
So I went on a hike this weekend. An epic 18 mile affair. It’s possible I might have pushed myself a little too much. As a result, I am so sore I had to take the day off work. That will teach me to have hobbies outside of painting.
Nature turns out to be a wonderful painter in her own right, though.
I had no chance to look at any new Kickstarter projects this weekend. Anyone want to link the latest and greatest to me?
This week I reid a new technique: I base coated the whole mini in a light grey, and then built up colors with a series of washes and glazes. At the very end I added red and white highlights where appropriate. I’m really happy with out it all turned out – it allowed for some really subtle blending techniques.
Magnus went with a similar color scheme, but did a much better job on the eyes. I found them to be particularly impossible on this model.
Newcomer Wolfie907 went a completely different way, and his result was much more technicolor. The flesh came out particularly well on this one.
Speaking of technicolor we have Kylie’s harpy up next. I LOVE this color scheme. Very stylish and inventive.
Arjen sends us a compelling WIP shot. I love this color scheme, and am convinced his harpy will turn out great!
Last, but certainly not least, we have Dirk. For the second week in a row, he is repurposing one of the bones to be a character in one of his Warhammer armies. Notice the bit of Bretonian flare… Great stuff, really!
Oh Rats! – Let’s knock out another group of minor minis! – please send pictures of your harpy to Caffeineforge@gmail.com by 2100 MDT on 6/29
Familiars – Paint your favorite, or two or three – it’s up to you.
Bat Swarm – I think this is one of the weakest minis in the entire bones collection. Let’s see what we can do to fix that.
