Much as suspected, I’m not quite ready to make the announcements I hinted at last week, so it’s another Plastic, Paint, and Glue post this week. I’ve taken a short break from building and painting model aeroplanes, and returned to some mini painting this week.
I’ve got a Scibor miniatures knight this week. Once again, it’s a very characterful sculpt that was a lot of fun to paint. The focus for this guy was non metallic metal gold, and red, which oddly enough is a colour I’ve always struggled to get a result that I’m happy with. It always ends up either too orange or too pink as I try to highlight and shade it.
I’m pretty happy with the result on this one, although the NMM gold is a bit sketchy in a few places, for the most part I think I’ve managed to achieve a reflective looking surface. The metal for the hammer ended up looking a bit too like stone on this one, but that’s an issue I’m always combating on steel type materials.
I also tried an enamel product for moss and lichen on the base, which is meant to texture up, but I don’t think I use it right, as it just looks like puddles of barf, which was not the intended outcome!
Here are the photos of this weeks efforts:
That’s it for this week! I’m very much hopeful I’ll be able to make my announcements next week, so please stay tuned and check in next Monday afternoon (GMT), when I’ll be making my regular weekly post! Until then, take care!
