Thread: Graishak WIP

  1. #1

    Default Graishak WIP

    Hi folks,

    following the recommendation of Chaotic Creations, I'm launching my own WIP thread and hope to gather
    valuable feedback regarding the project I'm now intending to start.

    Raw material (see picture)

    - An old black coach (missing wraith and coffin)
    - Neferata Mini
    - An old wraith
    - A big base

    Thinking about to design the base like the coach is on its way on a street, framed by smaller rocks.
    Once the base is finished I'll send you an update.

    Any ideas about the color scheme to be used?
    The coach is black for sure, but what about Neferata and the Wraith. What could be most spooky?

    Glad to see you starting a wip. Now inspire me to finish mine that has been on my paint desk since it was originally released...15 years ago or so???

    Hey, great work on starting the WIP Alex
    well my first bit of advice would be to dismantle that carriage and strip the paint off it... acetone works a treat (assuming it is metal) or if plastic dettol or simple green works well, BEWARE don’t put it in acetone if it is plastic ... this will help with a clean new start and prevent you from losing any detail. Then you can reassemble it (possibly without the roof so you can paint inside, or paint the inside and put it all together))...
    As for the colour scheme it all depends on how you want the end piece to look, I’ve seen heaps of these done different ways... personally I really like the ones with the ghostly look (ghost horse etc) ... but really paint it however you like... it’s your piece of art
    i recommend searching google and find an idea you like and try to create something similar... so if you see something you like but not sure how to do it, then you can ask on here how to do it, because there are some phenomenal painters who frequent these forums, and I’m sure someone will be able to give you a bit of guidance on how to do that technique...
    Looking forward to seeing how this all comes together !!!

    @Krulebear: Wow... that's a long time. Well, will try to motivate you by showing progress of my project.
    Problem, since I started again playing warhammer, that there are so many nice minis out there and so few time to paint them. Therefore unpainted forces are staring at me from my desk complaining "Why the coach? Why not me?" :-P

    @Marcus: Cleansing is done... there was only few colour besides the basic layer on the coach - and some dust + glue rests needed to be removed. As CMON is my "google" I've already searched for a couple of examples. Anyhow... as with Neferata a nice conversion is coming along will make some more thoughts... Could imagine to do the stuff things in a purple blue combination, while keeping the coach black.

    Base is now designed and I can move focus to the coach. Will start with the steeds.
    Feedback on the base? Did I miss something - or any advice what could be improved?

    This is coming along quite nicely mate and moving along at a great pace...
    i have to say, I haven’t seen this style of painting in a really long time, a long time (I feel like obi wan kenobi saying that ) ... didn’t know people were still painting like this... by this style I mean using the black undercoat as a shade (kind of a pre painted black line as such)... this is how I was shown to paint minis about 25 years ago, a very old school technique... don’t get me wrong it is a very effective technique when performed correctly, although it requires very straight lines when painting and/or some really smooth blending out of the black... I’m very interested to see how this progresses as I’m filled with nostalgia watching your painting style!!!

    by they way, I do actually have that neferata model tucked away in a box on my painting desk, so if you would like to see how I would tackle any part of it let me know and I will gladly help out where I can good job so far and keep up the great work!!!

    Sounds like a new Nickname for you - Obi Wan :-)
    Was talking to the guys in the GW shop about more current techniques... as I'm preferring to use brushes instead of airbrushing - the old school seemed to me still most efficient (as long as the minis should come into a darker scheme - which totally applies to Death and Destruction - which I'm playing). You're absolutely right... smooth hands producing straight lines are important... not every day that works out for me.
    Will keep you posted on progress. As I need to do a business trip at 28th of Jan - I'd really like to finalize the coach prior to that - let's see how far I will come - Otherwise there will be a break of two weeks *sniff*
    Thanks for the offer on Neferata. Any good advice for the ornaments on her cloak/skirt?

    I'd go with red on those little ornaments, it is the complimentary colour to green so it will stand out nicely and could look like little vials of blood

    Getting closer to finalize this piece of art. The wraith, which will sit on the back-end is still missing.
    Any suggestions, what could be further improved to put it to "final".
    The red on the ornaments came quite well, so I decided to do the nails in the same colour.
