KDOG gives it a go

So finally finished the Master Butcher. Good news is I have signed up for my first ever GB tournament. Kicks off in 6 weeks so bad news is I have to get one mini a week done prior to the event to field a fully compliant squad of 8. given my current rate of completion I think I am rather poked.

Once again sorry for the sub par picture quality

Alright time for a big update, I have my first ever GB tourney coming up and the team needs to be painted so I have been trying to get some work done.

I'll throw in a few WIP pics followed with my latest completed player Shank. Had one epic 4 hour painting session (thanks to my parents babysitting the kids for a whole day) and had a few casualties which resulted in a re-pose for Shank/that pesky front chain.

Anyway as always suggestions comments and encouragement welcomed.

Once again, apologies for the amateur as photo quality.

First up a blurry fillet.

Ok So Princess has been finished and based. Not my best fig so far, as usual my photographic skills are highly lacking. Also nearly finished Brisket, please feel free to comment on her hair I am wondering whether or not to add an extra highlight. p.S, sorry for the many same angle shots of the wee pup.

Right so new hardest thing I've ever shaded. Briskets bust!!! Bloody hell either too light or too dark!!

 

Should have her and Boiler finished and based by tomorrow night (NZ time).

So I finally have a fully painted 6 man squad with Fillet, Gutter and Minx not far off either. Tenderiser is on the way too. Then I can sink my teeth into my Hunters (once my bases arrive from Micro art studio).

 

So Enjoy or criticise the shit out of these next few update pics. Your choice.

First up, a Blurry Boiler. (I will actually be making some shiny goggles just have to buy some stuff to do it first),

20160804_222040_zpsrzodbcwe.jpg20160804_222050_resized_zpszm1ivnwp.jpg20160804_222125_zpsjj9yepoq.jpg20160804_222103_resized_zpsfajqr3cy.jpg

Followed by a blurry Brisket, you cant quite see but she has a pinky lipstick. And as previously mentioned I really struggled with my shading around the erm mammary gland area.

Princess' bitches

20160804_222026_resized_zps349nfu2c.jpg

First ever team shot woohoo

20160804_222320_resized_zpscgz1fzjs.jpg

20160804_222330_resized_zpsio5wqx4f.jpg

So hope you guys get some enjoyment looking at these. Whether it be because they are so terrible it made you laugh or because you were able to distract yourself from work or the wife for 5 mins. I can honestly say I definitely enjoyed painting them (some less than others) and am happy to have found this new hobby.

Also Taking these guys to Call to arms in Wellington on Sunday so hopefully they perform well now they are all pretty and stuff.

Amazing! I just finished painting my first minis ever (my Brewer's team), and I have got a long way to go!

Thanks for posting, I learned a lot on your thread that will probably help make my Fisherman look much better than my Brewers.

Cheers.

Thanks man, I am lucky I have a really experienced friend that I can bounce ideas off and get advice when I need it who has years of experience. Good luck with the fishermen and I hope you enjoy painting as much as I have.

Soooooo GB was canned at call to arms and painting dropped off for a bit. However In the last week or so both Truffles and Tenderiser arrived which has reignited my desire to finish Fillet, Minx and Gutter. Teneriser and Truffles have been assembled and primed waiting to join the ranks of slowly painted figs I own. Still awaiting bases for my 7 man Hunters squad. 

Expect some pics this week.

So here we have the first shots of my new dynamic duo Jason Voorhees and Piggles flies again. Have given them a light drybrush since these pics were taken. The idea with Tenderiser is that he is in the process of saving a goal with his...well tenderiser. Unfortunately after about an hour of trying to create a custom Green stuff ball that was mid pop I realised how terrible I am at making mid pop balls out of green stuff and just gave up! So the painting bug has caught up with me and I have a week off next week so i hope to finish Fillet, Minx,  Gutter and get some way with these two beauties. After the joy Boar was to paint I am really looking forwards to Truffles.

Sooooooo finally some minor updates for my 0 followers. Still all WIP pics but nearing completion

So first up Fillet, finished Reds, started highlighting flesh (not that you can see it).

20161121_193639_resized_zpsjwhr7bf2.jpg20161121_193652_resized_zpsypzicot2.jpg20161121_193702_resized_zpsrvcjfvha.jpg20161121_193759_resized_zpsqggvf4ba.jpg

And then Gutter, who I am lacking inspiration on again reds complete haven't really done anything else with her

20161121_193737_resized_zpsjxnzebgd.jpg20161121_193747_resized_zpspxoyhkfd.jpg

And Minx (now wishing I had held off and painted her up for my hunters given her S3 card reveal). Again reds done started on flesh.

20161121_193835_resized_zpstedsp7w5.jpg20161121_193848_resized_zpsvnyhgkik.jpg20161121_193902_resized_zpsxv5ufmry.jpg20161121_193827_resized_zpspitcqrsb.jpg

And finally Colin the third little pig who much prefers the life of the bustling city over the farm.... (been reading way to much fables comics). This is his base colour with a watered down dark shade over it, so only going to get pinkier from here on out.

20161121_193920_resized_zpscmelsnol.jpg20161121_193914_resized_zpspemn9pip.jpg

 

Well as always sorry for the sub standard photography and even worse paint jobs. Till next time.

Usual apologies for standard of pics, Bah blah enough with the admin. 

Finally finished Fillet today. a bit disappointed with the face but will try to fix it up a bit. Found myself really struggling with it today, the eyes are playing up a bit with Hay fever and the couple of hours i spent in the garden didn't serve to help.

So start with the aerial shot

Your Fillet has turned out pretty well if you ask me. If your struggling with eyes may I suggest something a little different from dotting in the pupil. Paint the eye area with your normal background colour, dark brown or black. Once you're happy with the shape you can then use your white to suggest the area your model is looking by painting half of the eye, this for me is a bit simpler than the usual way of doing eyes. I hope that makes sense masterkdog, in my mind it did :lol:. Finally I wish you the best of luck painting that horde of models!

Hey man, nice work! Also a new painter here. Got about 4 models done now (see DrJBP thread). I'm really liking your flesh tones and I'm not a huge fan of how mine our turning out. What paints/colors/shades are you using for them on your butchers?

Hey man, cheers. 

Pretty simple recipe really,

20170106_201002_resized_zpskz0er3gb.jpg

First I prime black, then a few watered down coats of the bronzed flesh, followed with a coat of strong tone wash (i water down for fairer skinned players), then more of the bronzed flesh and final highlight is bronzed flesh mixed with a wee bit of white.

Just have a play around and see if it works for you.

Finished Gutter and Minx finally, will throw some pics up later. I have to say I have mixed emotions about the two of them. At times I really enjoyed painting these two figs, at others it was a slog that put me off painting entirely. Any way I am happy they are done now and hope you like them (when I get them up).

Also making a wee bit of progress on Piggles and Tenderiser, started practicing eyes on VBrisket as well so interesting things on the horizon.

Your painting is excellent in general, but I have to say I'm blown away by your metal technique in particular. Perfect mix of a little shiny and a little grimy. Excellent!

Tenderiser and Truffles have turned out very nice, if anything i'd say add a little red glaze in and around his face to make even pinker :). Even to this day seeing all those primed models makes me sweat a little knowing how much time is going into them when painting, the new bases are much better. Finally you are certainly not alone with photobucket issues, it can take me 20-30 mins to get a picture uploaded at times.
