Darklands and Other Models

Postby Sorn » Tue May 21, 2013 10:09 pm

As requested by my fellow kickstarter buddies, I provide you with the following pictures of the Darkland models that I commissioned Seb and Bohun to paint. I know that you all are among the relatively few in the world that can appreciate the beauty of a beautiful model sculpted by a master that has been painted beautifully by another master. The Seb and Bohun commissions continue, so I will post more Darklands models as their painting is completed.

For those that care to reply to this thread, I would be very curious to hear your opinions regarding two things: (1) which sculpt is your favorite, and (2) which paintjob is your favorite.

This is Arthyen-

Thanks for posting those Ryan. You may guess that Vortun is my favorite. Outstanding! I know how hard he is to paint, check out my Trolls wip if you haven't yet. Shame we can't get wip of your stuff!

Bloodmaw is just awesome and certainly my favorite of all your painted mini's.
I would love to see a master paintjob on Hrudinn, when it comes in ofcourse ;)

Blood-maw, both sculpt and paintjob. Vortun and Falx-Brute look awesome, too. But I have to say that it's hard to just go with one paintjob over another one. Each one got something that really shines for that figure, so it's very hard to decide. They all take my breath away. :)

As I noted above, I will continue to add pictures of the completed paint jobs to this thread. I would be curious to know whether any of you that posted your favorite models and paint jobs above might consider changing your choices in view of the newer model paint jobs that I subsequently post.

The newest paint job is Scar-Scath

Ryan, could you please add which painter has painted which model. Some of them are obvious, others not so. Cheers!

Sculpt: Bloodmaw
Paint job: Magaan

The sheer detail in Magaan's armor coupled with the striped tiger cloak is amazing.

Every time I see this particular Blood Maw, I am reminded of the beast from Quake 1, the kinda polar bear monstrosity that shot lightning. I just see that paint job and brain kicks in "Nail Gun". Such an awesome piece and brilliant paint job.

Never like Bloodmaw until I saw his job! Great paintjob, and it stands out for me like a beacon, even though they are all good. As for sculpt, I also like the first brute (Falx?), although it is converted a bit, isn't it? It certainly adds interest, and the pose is very dynamic.

Thanks or sharing :)

Seb painted the models in the beige background pics and Bohun painted the models in the white background pics.

Here's another model that Seb painted- the big badass Krull! Let me know if you guys change your mind regarding your favorite model after you see this one:

Holy shit that's focking awesome! The only thing that brings Krull down is the blood-spatter on the axe. It doesn't look right at all. So that is a big let down. But everything else is awesome. That commission must have cost you a smaller fortune?!

#1. Krull
#2. Blood-maw

Also, Bohun got a very unique style of painting, and for me I have to say it's the extreme highlighting that he does that "shines" like if capturing the sun. Bohun's style is quite easy to tell. Sometimes he overdoes it, though. It's incredible skillful painting, no doubt, just that it, in my view, sometimes becomes "too busy". But he is definately one of the most skillfull painters of today.

I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you on that, grefven. I love the way the blood spatter looks. It brings a nice touch of detail to an otherwise flat and boring piece of the model.
Sorn, is it metallic paint, or did he just do an amazing job with NMM? If the former, it's a fantastic job of shading metallics (something I've always had problems with).

:shock: KRULL!
The transition of colour across the wings and horn... I will never have the time in my life to develop the skill...
Oh well, do what I can. :D
Blood-Maw still my favourite here, though Krull nearly does it.

The idea with the blood-spatter is of course very nice. But look at where it's placed. Only along the very edge of the axe itself. It just doesn't look right to me.

After a month of painting, Jotunn is finally finished. What do you guys think of him? Check out the scarification and the patterns on the metal pieces. Bohun has outdone himself! I wonder whether any of you will change your mind regarding your favorite model and/or paintjob.

That looks amazing. Aside from the scarred skin what I'm most impressed with is the detail on the left arm bracer and elbow pad. Breathtaking.

Thank you, grefven and AndyP. So I take it no one has changed their opinion regarding which model they think is the best or has the best paint job in view of the Jotunn pics?

It's hard to say. They are all beautiful and awesome paintjobs. Krull, Blood-maw and Mjagnir are totally epic, and it's not fair to compare those with your smaller figures. :) But, for me personally, I'd still go with Krull.

I posted this a few months ago in the Dwarven Forge forums, but I figured I would post-it again here since I think some of you may not have seen it. Select the link below to see a spin of a battle between the Bloodmaw and a party of adventurers in a beautiful Dwarven Forge cavern. Feel free to use your finger or mouse cursor to rotate the image. The adventurers were painted by Alexi-Z (i.e., Natalya Melnik).

Ckarakk- The base is not done yet. It will be done once the rest of the Tarvax starter set is completed.

Out of interest, are the bases finished on the Ax Drunes? or are they going to be brought more inline with the champion shown earlier? I'm not saying they dont look finished, just that they look quite different
