Title: Warhammer: Old School Nouveau style
Post by: Nicklas P on November 04, 2018, 09:16:46 PM
Painted up the Sepulchral Guard from Warhammer Underworlds a while ago, thought I'd post them here. Received a Commended Entry at Golden Demon Europe 2018 for which I'm quite proud.

The horseman is a conversion combining the upper body of the Sepulchral Warden and the horse from the Nurgle Harbinger of Decay. Some resculpting of the cape and repositioning of the arm was necessary. The horseman's head is from the Warhammer Skeleton Warriors box.

Happy to share!
Bone:
Basecoat with 50-50 mix of Scale75 Rainy Gray and White Sands. Shade with Rainy Gray and then mix black to this. Highlight with Sc75 White Sands and then pure white.

Rust:
Basecoat Mission Models Black, but anything with a eggshell finish should do. Wash with Citadel Typhus Corruption for subtle texture. Wash with Scale75 Brown Leather, let it pool and leave tidemarks, imho it only enhances the effect. Add watered down Scale75 Mars Orange to crevices and other areas were you want to increase the rust. I pre-wet the area and paint it in an almost wet-in-wet fashion. Add white to the orange and repeat. Go back with brown if you want to tone down the effect. "Highlight" edges and rivets with black. I'm not sure how well it shows in the photos, but I think the subtle difference between the eggshell black and the very matte Scale75 paints gives a nice effect.

I did a version of the leader on foot earlier. The close up of the shield shows off the difference in finish on the semi-gloss black "metal" and the matte rust.

I'm making this a general thread for Evil stuff.

My take on Hess Poison Breath. I added the pestilent cloud from the Plaguecaster in the WH40k Dark Imperium box which I thought was a perfect fit. The paintjob is pretty simple, mainly aiming for effect. I hit it with an airbrush to get the OSL effect and then added some spots of highlights. Most of my efforts went into the cloud.

The reflection is just painted on with regular matte paints. The only colours I used on this was black, white and Scale 75 'Toxic Waste Green.'

I painted up Sli'Ith Iron Lung in a similar fashion to Hess Poison Breath above. I converted him slightly by substituting his hands with one from the Empire Wizards kit and one from the 40k Poxwalkers.

I've painted up one of the chainrasps from the Warhammer Underworlds Nightvault box. I wanted to keep the paintjob loose and energetic. The idea was to make it seem as if the ghost was flowing with unnatural energy.

Gorgeous stuff.  I love when people paint with style over technical perfection - please don't take that as an insult.

One of my favourite commission painters is often derided for being technically poor, but his models are striking in a very artistic/emotional way (i.e. he delivers a thematic punch without meticulous edge-highlighting and hours of wet-blending, etc.).

Really like painted minis like this.  I have zero artistic ability to mimic the style or I would.

The guy I am thinking of is ThirdEyeNuke.  Very polarizing style.  He likes limited colour palettes, and a splattery Blanche-esque paint finish on things.  It's what I thought of when I clicked on this thread! :D That's not a bad thing.  What I like is that I can see your painting prowess in the pieces, but I can also tell you've chosen a particular style, a minimalist one.  I dig it.

This set of figs really captures my imagination. It's so evocative in a realistic way that really captures a dark winter day/evening. The near monochrome is so realistic under a snowy, dark sky yet there's still an unnatural light to it. It's really great. I want to build an entire undead army based on this theme :D Thanks for the inspiration.

Here's a fun comparison that I found (of course, it's fresh snow in the picture below, whereas the above figs look like they're coming out of older compacted snow, thus the bits sticking to cloaks and the uneven surface, still, the lighting comparison is pretty apt!):

That's pretty much the mood I was going for!


I painted up another Chaos sorcerer in the same vein as the two previous ones. This time Shreve the Inquisitor. I substituted the torch with the brazier from the base of the new Abaddon miniature from GW. Fits perfectly I think.

Lovely painting on those life challenged types.

I'd love to know your method/recipe for those aged metals.
Here's the recipe for the bronze (partially copied from IG)

Base: Citadel Abaddon Black + Vallejo Armour Brown (Air). For very old metals I prefer a non metallic paint but with a bit of sheen. I think this gives the most realistic finish.

Verdigris: Very diluted washes of Scale 75 SS Camo Medium Green+ Citadel Wraithbone. Local washes of Scale 75 Irati Green and Surfer Orc Flesh. Touch up edges with Base colour or by mixing Armour Brown with SS Camo Medium Green. Scalecolour dries very matte which I think helps sell the effect. A sort of speckling effect was achieved with a over-dilited mix of Scale 75 Thar Brown sprayed from a distance. Play around, let it pool and leave tidemarks, dilute until the pigments break. It's all about creating randomness.

They're made with Tomb Kings Tomb Guard bodies and heads/arms/weapons/shields from the regular Skeleton Warriors. The head with the large spike is from the Grave Guard kit though.

Thanks!

There was a bit of trial and error on the skeletons before I got the look I wanted so I don't really have a definite recipe. But if I was to try to recreate the look I would use Citadel Wraithbone as a base colour and then shade and highlight by mixing in black and white. Then use washes of various desaturated greens and browns to modulate the colours. I used Scale75 SS camouflage colours and Scale75 Gobi Brown which is a brownish green.

For the earth effect I've used my regular ground cover mix which is a mix of finely ground pine bark, old coffee grounds and various turf hues from Woodland scenics. I used an old brush to apply PVA glue like with a base, I then used a brush and my fingers to wipe of the excess. The moss tufts are late fall moss tufts from miniNatur/Silflor.

My latest project. Gulgoch the Butcher. Painted mainly with Scale 75 acrylics. Had some fun using Tamiya clear colours for the various disgusting effects. I'm also experimenting with a more minimalist basing inspired by the flat black bases on the old Rackham miniatures.

I've got more bronze skeletons in the pipeline, might record some of the steps to do some sort of tutorial. I've posted a rust tutorial on my instagram in case you're interested.

I've converted an old Necromunda Wyrd Telepath into an Empire Gold Wizard by using bits from the plastic Wizard kit. The pattern on the cloak is a reference to Gary Chalk's classic Wizard Duel illustration from times of yore.

I'd love to hear about the moss effect too please.

I'm using Summer moss pads from MiniNatur (Silflor in the US). I've given them a thin coat of a saturated bright green with an airbrush to take away the plastic sheen and make them pop a bit more.

Long live the Undead! Who would have thunk lime green could work so well on the restless.

How do you achieve that, I almost called it "splatter pattern" on the ghosts?

Cheers! I wrote down the method on my instagram a little while ago, copying the text here:

I primed the miniatures in Citadel Wraithbone, I then basecoated them in a 1:1 mix of P3 Necrotite Green and Scale 75 Toxic Waste Green. I used wet blending to create the transitions from Scale 75 Riff Green and to white respectively. I am not overly concerned with the smoothness of this transition since a lot of it will be covered up by further washes and effects later. The “bubbles” are then done by placing dots of very diluted paint on the surface. As the edges of these dots start to dry I use a clean brush to wick up the remaining paint, leaving a ring. There’s a lot of room for experimenting here. I wash the area with the background colour to blend the bubbles into the surface and then repeat the process, making sure that some bubbles of the new layer overlap the previous ones. That way a sense of depth is created. Stippling is used throughout the process to blend the different areas together. Washes of the base colours are used to either tone down the contrast or help with the transition.

It’s very much an iterative process so it’s hard to describe it in a step by step fashion but I hope the description above is somewhat helpful.

Base colour is VMA 71.041 mixed with black. I then use thin washes of Scale 75 SS camo medium green mixed with white. I apply this unevenly and let it pool and leave tide marks. If I'm unhappy with the results I tone it down with the SS camo green mixed with black. I finish by adding some variation with washes of Scale 75 Irati Green and Caribbean Blue.


Very smart!
Thanks!

Dammit, I love your old bronze style. I can't seem to replicate it! I just always get drawn into putting a bit of metallic paint in, which ruins it.
Thanks Cubs!

I've been working on this old Perry troll for the past couple of weeks. A very characterful sculpt but somewhat tricky to paint. Some of the areas are sort of "blobby" and poorly defined. I added lot of texture work to work around this.

Kitbash using two generations of fanatics. The legs and chain are from the fanatic in the Warhammer Underworlds Zarbag's box and a the upper body is one of Kev's classic 1993ish ones. A bit of putty was used as well of course.

With the Warhammer Skeleton Warriors kit now being out of production (:'() I decided to try out the recently released North Star kit sculpted by Mike Anderson. The bronze age styling on these sculpts is just the sort of look I'm after. I went with my moss and iron scheme and I think they fit in well with their Warhammer cousins, albeit slightly smaller. I have a couple of more on the go and I'll post them later.

Lovely work. Nice rusted effect on the armour. What colours did you use?

Thanks. I use Citadel Abaddon Black as a base, its glossy finish is enough to suggest metal. I then give it a bit of texture with Citadel Typhus Corrosion. I then use Scale 75 Brown Leather and Mars Orange, and for the deepest crevices I mix a little P3 Carnal Pink into the orange. Finally I use a regular pencil to highlight the sharpest edges.

Finished up a couple of more troopers. I really enjoyed painting these, nice simple sculpts with clear details.

The Cacogen, Chirurgeo-cultist warrior

I made this guy to complement the cyber-vampire lady a few pages back in this thread. He sort of straddles between fantasy and sci-fi. Inspired by the Alchemists faction in the Rackham game as well as the futuro-fantasy worlds of Vampire Hunter D and The Book of the New Sun. The idea is that of a surgery-addicted cult that constantly strive to beautify and modify themselves. Like vampires they prolong their lives by transfusing the blood of their victims.

The Thaumaturge

More skeletons!

First one is a champion/bodyguard for my chieftain. It was converted by my friend Matteo of the Pinxit blog. The horn blower is from the regular Warhammer kit, I only substituted the head for one from the Skulls kit and reposed the second arm to grab the horn.
