Thread: Lone Lemming's WIP

    I made some progress on the body and the head.

    Gold is my more or less usual VMC 70822 German C. Black Brown for base and for recesses, VMC 70921 English Uniform and on it VMC 70877 Goldbrown for darkest shade, VMC 70948 Gold Yellow and the VMC 70858 Ice Yellow to highlight.
    I tried to stretch the palette and use more English Uniform and switched to darker darkest shade.

    Red cloth and face is Cloak is VMC 70814 Burnt Cadmium Red, VMC 70908 Carmine Red, and hint of VMC 70845 Sunny Skin Tone.
    Green cloth is VMC 70967 Olive Green, VMC 70891 Intermediate Green, VMC 70827 Lime Green and VMC 70917 Beige.

    And the images are:

    Skin is with VMC 70814 Burnt Cadmium Red, VMC 70804 Beige Red and VMC 70815 Basic Skintone.
    But my biggest issue was that I could not really find his eye! You need to look from a lower right angle to catch a hint of it.

    For the beard I tried a new recipe, VMC 70822 German C. Black Brown + VMC 70884 Stone Grey for deepest parts, then VMC 70884 Stone Grey, VMC 70986 Deck Tan and VMC Ivory 70918 for final highlight:

    And here is the almost finished body.

    The copper parts are painted with VMC 70872 Chocolate Brown, VGC 72066 Tan, VGC 72041 Dwarf Skin and some small amount of VGC 72004 Elf Skintone.
    The smoking pipe was painted with VMC 70982 Cavalry Brown and highlighted with VMC 70843 Cork Brown.

    10ball, Tee888, thanks!

    Furthermore I was really surprised, I did not expect anything like this, my 30th Anniversary Space Marine was listed in the New and Notable section!

    The marine is stunning. What scale is it?

    I've just measured it and is a standard 28mm SM to the eyes. I was surprised, as measured Sigvald, too, and he is bigger, looks like a 32mm figure, bigger than the Lamenter.

    Further work on the backpack:

    And after sticking it to the body, looks good from front, but when I turned it back, I noticed that I did not think of something:

    Need to switch the color of the holster and the pistol handle. Meh. Luckily I used instant glue, not plastic cement.

    Maybe you can shift it to a bit more darker/lighter tone? or shift it's colour to a more blue/yellow? so the difference with the skirt becomes more evident...

    Sadly, no, it will be one of the centerpieces of my dwarf army, cloth and equipment colors should match. I would not have the same problem with a display mini, however.
    Furthermore I use the color red to designate bosses.

    With the fixed backpack:

    Thanks MAXXxxx, I promise I will not write short and unfinished messages from my phone
    I forgot to write that I plan to add darkening to the carved parts and edge highlight.

    Adding copper and gold:

    The backpack looks like nothing was even wrong in the first place; nice flip-flop. The whole project is coming together nicely!
