WIP Orruk Megaboss

Posted on January 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

One more addition to the ranks of Da Jungleboyz, coming right along! Almost there, it’s now to the point I can start finalizing areas. The armor still looks a little bland so I’ll add some dags or something to zazz it up a bit.

WIP: Eldar Skathach Wraithknight of Iybraesil #2

Posted on January 20th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hey guys, have a look at my Skathach Wraithknight. I made some good progress so far, legs and hip are finished (apart from the armour plates). As you can see, I changed the pose of the legs into a forward-striding stance. Next, I’ll work on the upper b…

WIP: Halfling Rooster Riders

Hullo. :) Just a quick one from me today – it’s a WIP shot of the first two Rooster Riders I’m working on. These are from a Kickstarter I backed last year. Now I got a coop’s worth of these chaps lying around (plus some Halfling militia on foot) for al…

WIP: Eldar Skathach Wraithknight of Iybraesil #1

Posted on January 11th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

There it is, my first big project of 2017. If you would have asked me a few years ago whether I would ever add a Wraithknight to my collection, I would have answered with a firm “no”. I really love the Wraithknight’s background, it’s so very much Eldar, but I think the model suffers from a few weird design choices. For example, I don’t like the shape of the head and the blank face plate, the undersized shoulder exhausts, the back section, and the abundance of oval blips. Compared to the elegant Revenant Titan, the model feels busy.

Esceno y cofres para Frostgrave // Scenery and chests for Frostgrave

Posted on December 29th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Estuve haciendo esceno y cositas para frostgrave. Terminé varias cositas. entre ellos los cofres para jugar Frostgrave, unas paredes y empecé un árbol al cual le voy a poner una especie de atalaya arriba.
I have finished some things, the chests to play Frostgrave, some walls, and I started a tree I am going to make a Watchtower.
Paredes // Walls

Vamos por partes, primero acá se ven las paredes que son pedazos de tergopor, pegados a un cartón, al cual le puse papel tisue mojado con plasticola diluida al 50%.
Lets go piece by piece, first here I show the walls that are pieces of porexpan, glued to a cardboard. I put over it tissue paper moisted and with PVA 50% w/ water.

Cosos para jugar frostgrave // Parallelepipeds to play infinity

Acá estos son  cosos, estos cosos son para jugar Frostgrave. Están hechos con cajas de Wiskies, a las que le puse de recubrimiento papel tisue mojado con plasticola y les di color con pincel (ayudado por mi crio) y terminé con la técnica de la esponja para darle textura.

Here we have this things, made specially to play Frostgrave. They are made using wisky boxes, covered with tissue paper moisted with 50% PVA-water. I painted using brushes (helped by my kid), and finished them with the sponge to texture them.

Y acá, aparecen unos puentes que estuve haciendo, la idea va a ser armar estructuras para jugar frostgrave tranquilos con los pibes. Tengo muchos de unos 10 cm o 15 y otros dos de unos 25-30.
And here we have bridges I have made, the idea is to craft structures to play Frostgrave with the pals. With this I could create laberinth

Acá se ve la plataforma que pienso meterle al arbol.
Here is the thing to create the watchtower.

Ruinas // Ruins

Bueno lo siguiente es la muestra de que juntar piedritas de cualquier lado, en contra de las opiniones de la compañera de uno, que lo putea por llenar el auto de: arena, piedras de distintos lagos, arenitas, piedritas y piedrotas, y como estas piedritas logran darle un toque DISTINTIVO a las escenografías pedorras que uno hace.
Well the following is the sample of gathering pebbles from either side, against the opinions of one’s partner, who insults you for filling the car with sand, stones of different lakes, sandstones, pebbles and rocks, and how are you manage the little stones to give a DISTINCTIVE touch to the low-fi sceneries that one does.
Primer plano de la ruina hecha con cubitos de tergopor y plasticola.
Close-up of ruin made with proexpan cubes glued with PVA.

Acá se puede apreciar una pared hecha con cubitos de tergopor y arriba una capa de arena. La pimera mano fue un gris claro 50% con plasticola 25% y agua 25% para poder darle rigidez a la estructura.

Here you can see a wall made with cubes of porexpan and over it a layer of sand. The first coat was a light gray 50% with 25% PVA and 25% water, in order to give strenght to the structure.

En este momento tengo que aceptar que pasa como en el capítulo de los simpsons: escena perdida escena perdida, fin. Porque me faltan fotos de en medio. Le di una capa de marrón, pincel seco y arena en la base a la pared lineal.
At this point I have to accept that it happens as in the chapter of the Simpsons: scene missing scene missing, end. Because I’m missing pictures in the middle of the process. I gave it a layer of brown, dry brush and sand at the base to the linear wall.

Cofres / Chests
Bueno, a los cofres del viejo post, les di una mano con aerosol blanco mate y después fui pintando la madera con marron. Para hacer el efecto de las vetas de la madera le daba con un marrón oscuro, medio diluído. Recuerde querido lector que previamente hice los cofrecitos estos con rastys cortados (no con ratis cortados, lo cual hubiera sido bastante ilegal y sangriento).  A estos les puse de base tapitas de gaseosas recortadas.
Here we have the chests from the old post, I gave them a coat of white aerosol paint, and over it I put brown. I used darker and diluted brown to create the effect of the woods vein. Remember my beloved reader that this are the chests I have made using rastys and corks. 

So far, so god…
