Scott's Stuff

Post  ScottRadom on Fri Apr 09, 2010 8:38 pm

I thought I'd start a thread and put up the stuff I paint. Most of it is just random stuff that goes for eBay. This is my Rincewind from the Discworld series...


This is a Napoleon Dwarf lookin' dude From Scibor outta Poland. I was painting him all french like, but I thought I'd do him more 40Kesque so I could maybe sell him easier as an IG or Traitor Commissar or Advisor guy...

Fire away any comments or crits please.

love the colors, good blending. I have noticed though Scott, on a lot of your painted figs, a lot of the finer details are obscured because the fig appears fairly 'shiny'. Are you sealing these with a varnish? The shiny effect erases alot of the shadows on the model, making a lot of the detail run together.

Paz-First I've heard of the shininess factor erasing shadows and details. I guess I'll look into it!

Working the reds lately, eh? I really like the shadowing and blending of the reds on this guy (Nice use of GW Dwarf flesh there big guy!). Skulls look great. And from what I can see of the metals, they look awsome. Nice work!

Speaking of red, did you ever finish that Blood Angels Terminater you started?

Thanks guys.

No Ryan, I abandoned that Terminator as I decided it was a poor model for me to try stuff on. Since I have to paint the dozen or so and they should look the same I shut that one down. This fig was a practice for red. The cloak is shaded with blue to black and the armor is shaded with orkhide shade and some black. I prefer using the green, and I think I'll do the Space Hulk stuff that way. So I am glad I tried this guy out instead.

damn those guys look nice. I think my favorite detail is the skulls on the back of the Khorne warrior. For the other model, i really like how the blue(teal?) turned out. I also dont know how much is the way it is photographed, but the contrast on the spearpoint metal is really well defined.

I like the blue's on the shield and scabbard. It's a nice contrast to the clothing. I think the paint job looks great. To me, and I could be wrong here, the 2 shade of greens of his clothing just seem to blend(?) too much. I don't know, ignore that.

Sorry if I'm way off here. But I know you like to hear criticism.

Dude! those are amazing! I wanna see your 40k stuff >=D

That Dwarf is my favorite by far. the blending on the shield is just seamless very nice work. maybe I should bring my step-dad with me to a paint day you could show him some tricks, he wants to paint a new Wolf Lord since his old old Leman Russ model doesn't really fit the bill and Ragnar Blackmane is missing. ^_^;;

Nah, you're not off. I have been experimenting with using different base colours but using the saem shading and highlighing colours on parts of mini's. My idea for "Low" fantsy types of mini's is that I didn't neccessarily want them popping all over with colours like most warhammer stuff. However, it's a good crit and I've been getting a lot of it. My theory was thta I can paint most of the mini in kind of blasse style colours, what I would think of as real clothing, and then just add in a piece or two of fantasy style colour like on the shield and scabbard. I don't want to abandon totally that train of thought but I am planning on eBaying most of my stuff so I gotta listen to what people have to say about what they see. So thanks.

honestly I think the clothing is an opinion thing, I can see ryan's point in the two upper pictures but the lighting in the picture with him and the khorne lord makes his cloths look awesome, very realistic and I really like the difference between the two colors, very subtle and realistic.

Must be that new Chaos Dwarf anti-slayer you were telling me about. Very cool. Nice paint job. I don't really know what's going on with the eye holes, how they bulge out of the helmet. I really like the yellow work on the severed head. Looks very dead and jaundiced. Another awsome piece.

Thanks, but they're still not on par with Golden Demon winners. I've been painting army stuff fro a long time, 20 years give or take. I only really started taking paitning seriously in the last couple years. It's been a fun struggle to improve. There's tons of good people out in internet-ville who've been really great at helping out. Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks for the complement on the avatar! Wouldn't have it with out your help and guidance.

Cool fig and another awsome paint job. I cant see his eyes. Just the ange of the photo? Nice gold metal work. I can never get gold to do what I want.

I can see the right eye in the first photo, barely. It looks suitably grumpy. Might be you monitor Ryan, there is a huge amount of variation between displays.

The eyes are just wicked sunk in. They're in a lot of shadow. It's fine to see them IRL, but it was tough getting a pic. My pics are not very great of my stuff.

I can see the eyes, but that's because my screen is wicked bright, if I look at it from any other angle though instead of straight ahead then I can't.

Where are the WOTR dwarves Scott? But for serious, good stuff, your control of muted tones is commendable.

Aw man, I tried. I cleaned up and got about half a dozen ready to paint. I glue my mini's to big wooden blocks for painting and I did that. I even started one dude. Just... can't... do... it. Every mini I paint I see tons of mistakes, but I try to make the good outweigh the bad. Painting fast and quick for the table means that I see almost all mistake and not much good stuff at all. So then I thought I'll just slow down and take my time. I can have an army painted by 2018 for sure. But the plastic dwarves are just not that great. I should mount up some of the character models from the range. I really like them!

And thanks for the compliment. Much appreciated.
