Quick high game standard Kurtz figure for Warhammer Fantasy. Let's clear up right away that yes indeed I know there are parts missing from the figure. It was a commission that was sent to me minus a few parts... I went ahead and sculpted a new reign on the left hand side of the figure. I am not much of a sculptor but I think it worked.
I went ahead and painted it very similar to the box art. My only stipulation was to make the sword a bluish metallic to convey a magical sense to it.
Comments, criticisms, critiques are always welcome! I don't paint fantasy too much these days so it was a nice quick change of pace.
I don't have much time to comment, but not much time is needed. Brilliant as always Slorak, i particularly like the gold detailing, and im sure your client will be very happy with that! Thanks for sharing.
"In dedicato imperatum ultra articulo mortis"
It maybe the picture but it seems a little bit dark?
I love the metallics also gold is an area I struggle with - nice.
I can't see much of the face; if you've not sent it yet could you get us a pic of this most important part of the miniature?
The horse is mighty fine, could you tell us what work went into it, please?
Up, up and away!
There really isn't too much with the face. Based with dwarf flesh, washed with brown ink. Highlighed first with elf flesh and then pale flesh. I still have the figure and will try to get a pic tonight.
For the horse (and the figure in general) I started with a white primed base - which I inked with watered down black ink to darken. The base color is Vallejo Model Color dark grey. First highlight is Vallejo model color london grey. Second highlight is a mix of London Grey and pale grey. For the muzzle I used the vallejo model color pink mixed in with some grey and heavily watered down to keep it translucent. This was painted over several layers...
Fur on legs and tail are very simple... Bone white washed with brown ink and then touched up a tad with bone white and ivory.
Sorry for the dark pics... for some reason the last few pictures I have taken have come out darker than I would like. I am using 3 shop lamps (2 with 100W bulbs) so I don't think that is the big issue. I am planning on constructing a light box soon that will hopefully improve the quality more...
Very nice. what was your technique for the blade ?
The blade deviated from my norm. The client wanted a "Blue metallic". It is based with gunmetal (vallejo game color). I then mixed metallic medium (vallejo model color) and blue ink (vallejo game color ink) and glazed the blade over several layers. To tie it all together I glazed it with watered down blue ink.
damn that is one fine-looking knight!
can you tell me how you did the gold?
Base coat is Vallejo Game Color Brassy Brass
Brown ink glaze
1st highlight is the darker of the 2 golds (burnished I think)
2nd highlight is the lighter of the 2 golds (polished I think)
All colors I have used are vallejo game colors - GW has very similar equivalents.
