Random Rursday: Agramon, Pit Fiend

On Thursdays, I like to take a break from my army projects.  Instead, I try to do something that I can start and complete all in one evening.

Agramon the  Pit Fiend is one of the bigger, upgrade models from the Reaper Bones Kickstarter.  It was big enough that it took two days to complete.

I first tried doing the blue flame and eyes in Reapers gray blues triad, but it ended up way too gray, and not at all blue-flamey.  So I repainted it with the ultramarine blues.

Random Rursday: Goblins

On Thursdays, I like to take a break from my army projects.  Instead, I try to do something that I can start and complete all in one evening.

My three-year-old daughter picked out these Reaper Bones Kickstarter goblins for me to paint up.  She told me they should be purple like her dress.

I’m fairly happy with these guys, although I’m not in love with the red of the cloth.  I used the same purple wash (Secret Weapon’s Amethyst) as I did on the skin, to try to tie the model together.  I think it may have ended up without enough contrast.

I guess I the Kickstarter came with three sets of these guys, so I can always try again later.

Random Rursday: Seltyiel, the Iconic Eldritch Knight

On Thursdays, I like to take a break from my army projects.  Instead, I try to do something that I can start and complete all in one evening.

Another Thursday, another Reaper Bones model.  I kind of rushed and didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted, which really shows.  I wanted the demon thing being held up as kind of a fiery phoenix thing, though it just turned out kind of muddy.

I did use a purple wash on the red robes, which I think has a nicely subtle shade effect.

Random Rursday: Wench with Mugs

On Thursdays, I like to take a break from my army projects.  Instead, I try to do something that I can start and complete all in one evening.

Today I was finally able to do the Wench with Mugs.  This is one of the townsfolk models from the first Reaper Bones Kickstarter.  This time, I didn’t try to just use washes.  It worked out a lot better.

The primer I used for this batch (OSH White Primer) seems to have left a bit of a sandy surface texture.  I’m pretty sure I did it in decent weather (<60% humidity, >60ºF is my target), so either I did it wrong (held to close, maybe?), or the product is just unsuitable for modeling.
