    Kuffy's Painting Log. 2007-2014

    2010 EDIT

    I have changed the beginning of the thread to now contain a sort of contents of the thread. It has gotten pretty big, and I can see it getting bigger. So below will be a link to various projects that are in this thread. I'll link to the completed or important posts for each, then you will have to look around the post yourself for other details.

    Also, you will find accusations of spam in this thread. I do not consider it to be thus, instead I would suggest you look at it as banter between some friends. I have made great friends on here and we laugh, joke and tease all the time. They also help push me and advice me. Cheers guys!

    Wraith

    OK, the first WIP entry is my current miniature of the Games Workshop Wraith for Vampire Counts. I had this because years ago I aspired to start a Vampire Counts army, never got much further than buying some stuff. Anyway;

    Wanting to do something a little different and expand my abilities, I have decided for this mini I will do directional lighting. Basically everything is lit from a specific angle (here from behind), but with this I wanted to go one step further. You may not know but the 'evil' moon in Fantasy is green, so I decided I am going to try and highlight using green to give the 'spooky' look. In addition to this I will be attempting to do a nice set of orange glowy eyes on the wraith and some rust on his scythe. Two more things I've never done.

    Picture one:



    This is a mock up of his base. Wanting him to be a little bit more suiting, a graveyard seemed appropriate, thus a bit of rummaging and I came up with some zombie arms and some gravestones. Hacking two up I wanted a broken down look and above is the end product.

    Picture two:



    The wraith thus far. You'll notice the general lack of highlights on much of him, this is because only his skull is done. The difference is very hard to see =( but about half way over the top his skull gets more highlights, due to the idea of the front not getting any light to it and I'm trying to keep it dark. Otherwise, I have just shaded the staff and the blade on the weapon.

    Not much to him so far, but soon!!

    Dear All Concerned,

    Now although I have sen those pictures of your box sets before, I would just like to say, damn!

    I wish I had that many box sets lying around! Now, as you said, their is lack of highlighting, but do not worry, looks great so far, at least better than mine (not saying much).

    Well, i look forward to seeing more done!

    Wow. Just from a second look I see you have 36ish boxes and sprues plus bits to work with. Can't wait to see everything and hope to take from (steal) your methods of painting.

    And +Points for using green, my favorite color

    yourtimehascome - Well, the highlighting isn't started just yet as such. So this I'm not worried about.

    Jaffar_Hasad - I have more stuff on the way and have brought more since this picture. =D Thanks.

    you wouldn't be interested in trading or selling your extra ground pounder badass man with a bag of chips, would you?

    Wraith



    Well, I have progresses.. um.. very little. There is a reason for this, well one besides not getting out of bed until half twelve, and I had problems with the skull and blade.

    I decided to give the skull a wash to darken the front a little, then using a lighter colour I washed the bone in this to try and tie the large difference together. What happened was odd. The highlighted section (rear facing) went really, really white and chalky. Then I wash it again, the same. So after various attempts I went back and redid the front of the skull - this was because a shading wash made it look really dark brown and well... "not very good" to paraphrase. Looks OK now, but you can see a clear split in the 'halves' which I'm not fully happy on, but we'll see.

    Then the blade. I washed it with various layers of scorched brown and Tamiya Clear Orange to represent 'wear, tear, and ageing'. This was OK, but hard to see due to the basecoat being so dark (note, rusting etc seems to work best over a clean layer; chainmail or mithril silver perhaps). Then I got onto the blood. This was the problem. The first adding (Tamiya Clear Red) made it look like I had just painted a blocked strip across the blade. But on the reverse it came out OK. So, back to washing to try and do something with the 'block'. Failed, so I drybrushed mithril silver and started with the 'weathering' again. Hence why the two sides don't look exact. The blood worked out OK, but I need to practice using it.

    The staff however went OK. Using VMC Burnt Umber and Flat Earth I got a nice dark looking staff.

    So, either with a few problems I don't think it's terrible; though the pictures don't show everything up all that well. Next stage: grey highlights on the front, then to start the green on the rear before trying my hands at glowing eyes.

    All comments welcome.

    Incidentally I used this site here on Tuesday and for £30 I got all this:





    And two cans of Testors Dull Cote as well. It came this morning. Now that is quick! This place has so much modelling stuff, for bases etc it cannot be passed up on!
