A fun mini to paint up for the Reaper Miniatures Spring Mini Exchange. My partner wanted a) female b) non-human skin-tones c) horns, d) practical clothes.
3 out of 4 isn’t bad.
Her wings got replaced with the wings from the Bones 3 Sophie, as Princess’s wings got fatally bent in transit. I used zenithal priming for the major shadows and highlights, MSP Clear Red and DR Payne’s Gray for the red, MSP Bright Skin triad + MSP Splattered Blood for her skin. VMA Steel over MSP Midnight Blue for the weapons. The same Midnight Blue is the base for her thong-dress.
Breachstorm (http://www.breachstorm.com/) is a new skirmish game a friend of my is making. I had a chance to play a short demo game, and I plan on playing a few more times before it hits Kickstarter, when I get a free Saturday. One of the factions (Homeworld Confederacy) is a somewhat generic space marine faction, so I decided to paint up a bunch of my dudes that were just sitting around. When the Kickstarter comes, I am most interested in the race of Lion dudes.
The original plan was to rely primarily on the airbrush, but I ended up throwing a wash and dry brushing medium grays, then edge highlighting in white gray. Still, didn’t take too much time.
Diamond Corps (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: injection molded PVC plastic
I will use these guys as Homeworld Confederacy Riflemen and Fire Team Leader
Diamond Corps Medic (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: spin-cast resin
The camera did not like the all-blue shot of just the shield and dramatically shifted the color. I would like to get a DSLR one day, but I don’t take $500+ worth of photos.
she doesn’t have a role in Breachstorm, but I wanted to paint up this model at the same time as the other Diamond Corps models
CSM Alex-117 (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: spin-cast resin
He will play the role of Capt. Johan Lukas
IMEF: Reggie Van Zandt (Reaper Miniatures, Bones Chronoscope)
material: injection molded PVC plastic (Bones)
Reggie will be used as a Support Gunner for a Fire Team
A squad of Grey Maidens. They show up in Curse of the Crimson Throne, so I’ve painted a captain, a couple lieutenants and some grunts.
Working on some Gray Maidens – grunts, lieutenants and captain – for Curse of the Crimson Throne.
VMA Steel + Citadel Guilliman Blue (glaze), then mixing in VMA Aluminum for the armor. Wash of Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade (shade). RMS HD Crimson Red for the cloth bits and RMS Tanned Flesh for the exposed skin.
Needed for an upcoming game.
By pure coincidence, the wooden bases match the miniature’s colors almost perfectly so I just left them as-is.
Another barbarian, this time in slightly more muted colors. I tried using pigments on him, which came out as a mixed bag. Not too surprising for my first time, so I call it a success.
