Thread: Lone Lemming's WIP

    I know I did not post for a long time, as I promised I working on some not so interesting TTQ minis, but here are some squig herders now:

    I think that the goblin on the left is the funniest piece of the GW range.

    And two more squig herders:

    I luckily broke one of the pipes when pushed the goblin to the base. And the left face of the goblin on the right was a mess, I painted some scar over it. Failcast at its best, fragile and miscasted.

    Luckily I can paint cartoonish NMM faster and faster.

    BTW what happened to the "Manage attachments" window? I can not add pictures from my phone.

    I feel your pain regarding ' failcast' . I haven't bought any myself as such but I've had my fair share of badly cast resin miniatures. Especially before casting improvements were made a few years back. My scratch building skills are not refined enough to build entire missing elements where quality control fell asleep or just didn't exist. It's frustrating to have to fill in a multitude of small bubbles and holes.
    I apologise if you have already covered it and I'm too blind to see, but could you tell me what you use for your NMM silver? It looks nice enough to pass off as a good looking metal element but a style that someone could easily learn. I've been resistant to using NMM for years but it would look good on all my Rackham dwarves.

    Just check my gallery, I used to describe my recipes.

    For steel I use nowadays VMC German Grey, London Grey, Medium Sea Grey and Pale Grey Blue, but any bluish grey scale would be fine (in the past I used VGC colors, like Heavy Charcoal, Sombre Grey, Glacier Blue)
    VMC German Grey is the darkest color and I use it in the recesses, and build the colors up from German Grey:London Grey to Pale Grey Blue, and use White as highlight color.
    On the biggest, forward looking surfaces I paint the light colors towards the bottom, and on the side looking surfaces I paint the light colors towards the top. The other surfaces need some figuring to look right, but the basic idea is to preserve the contrast, not putting similar colors to each other.
    For shading I use the loaded brush method (German Grey:London Grey, then some Medium Sea Grey and a small dot of Pale Grey Blue in the tip of the brush), sometimes I paint from the middle to the edges (loading Medium Sea Grey in the brush, and some German Grey/Pale Grey Blue in the tip of the brush). When I am lucky, it takes me 3-5 passes to paint a surface, but sometimes I need 10. As you can see, I am still working on it.

    BTW I did not mention, but broke one of the spears, too.

    Furthermore I completed my first commission, a set of tokens/minis/robots for RoboRally

    I did not wish to spend much time on them (less than 1h per mini), here are the results:

    I started working on my Longbeard unit, especially on the banner.

    - I draw the outlines with pencil
    - Painted them with diluted VMC 70822 German C. Black Brown
    - Filled it with VMC 70921 English Uniform and VMC 70814 Burnt Cadmium Red
    - I used white to highlight English Uniform, as I wanted to achieve a more muted golden look (as opposed to all my gold parts)
    - Red was highlighted with VMC 70908 Carmine Red and VMC 70845 Sunny Skin Tone.
    - There are some parts I need to fix, but I think it begins to look good, especially for TTQ.

    The pictures are:

    Boguz, I did not forget you, but my wife used all the mulch in our garden, and the replacement Tesco mulch is resembles dirt. And she does not allow me to buy another 50 liters. Need to find out something.

    Sorry, next december.

    I need to spend a lot of time planning, and even more on painting, will not finish (not even begin!) this year.

    Exactly the same thoughts.... hehehehe it's an impressive miniature, almost overwhelming. Take your time we will be watching.... ^^

    And thank you for explaining how you did the banner.
