Hello,

Instead of posting pictures one by one in the gallery I decided to post them in a thread so I could upload more pictures as I paint new miniatures.

Here are the miniatures I have painted so far.

The White Lion.



The 4 starting survivors.









Intimacy couple.





The Screaming Antelope.

Wow! some of the best I've seen posted.
Well, maybe the antelope is just a a bit too pink, but it's just imho.

I really like the flesh tone on the lion's front paws; I'm planning to do something similar for mine. By the way, what's your color recipe for the lion's fur and mane?

Thanks.

You are right the antelope is a bit pinky. I didn't manage to get a correct scorched skin/muscle effect. But it seems more pink than it is because of the light.

For the lion skin I used Ivory and Iraki sand Vallejo paints. Same recipe for the mane with different brown colours.

Great job.
I think that what makes these miniatures different from the other great painting jobs we've seen is how 'clean' they look.
Considering the world of KD they probably wouldn't look this way but I certainly like them very much.

wow, your blending and shades are soooo smooth! You must have done many thin layers I'm guessing?

Not so much as I didn't want to spend too much time on the miniatures. I always begin with thick layers and then thin ones.

I actually love the Screaming Antelope - the pink is super creepy because its normally not a disturbing color and the figure is so disturbing.

But I do think that, like a Nascar, this Antelope should say "Sponsored by Pepto-Bismol."

Really impressive! What sized brush do you use for the fine details?

Thank you. I use a size 1 brush for détails and a 5/0 for tiny détails such as eyes.

I start with a mix of the following Vallejo paints : a mix 50/50 of Brown sand and Flat Flesh for the base. To darken (the shadows) I add a drop of Dark Flesh and Medium Brown. For the highlights I mix the base color with more Flat Flesh and the final touch is done by adding Ivory (And I finish with pure Ivory.

I sometimes add Base Flesh to the mix for a paler skin (such as the survivor with white hair).
