Arcworlde Trolls and JoeK Apollo

I've got various friends who run their own miniature companies, either sculpting their own stuff or commissioning others to do it for them. Over the last few years I've ended up accumulating tons of metal and resin models from their ranges and (mostly) completely failed to paint any of them! At the moment I'm doing what I can to make right on this, by working their models in amongst the many GW projects I'm doing.

Arcworlde Trolls


These are some really old Arcworlde models, made by Alex for his Warploque Miniatures range. They're getting close and I should have them finished in the next couple of days. Stuff like this suits my painting style to some extent - there are big, organic surfaces that I can airbrush, applying the initial highlights and glazes of colour for nuance. Once that's done I continue along the same lines with brush work, adding details and more colour nuance and highlights. These are still at a playing around sort of stage - nothing is fully refined, so some parts might look a bit rough. I'm 'blocking' in the feel of the model and will tidy it up at the finish with some more glazes to smooth everything out, then some carefully applied spot and edge highlights and detail work.




Arcanite crystals are a big part of the Arcworlde lore, providing magical power where they appear, so I have added them to the base of this troll and replicated some of their colour in his eyes, as if he's being possessed by the power.



This one's still at a slightly rougher stage. I do like the feel of the tones here, they just need to be transitioned through a bit smoother. I think I'll add some pigments to the base because it's a bit close to the skin colour right now.

JoeK Apollo


Apollo is a model from Joe's Odyssey range. I have to admit, he's not my favourite out of all the options, some of the characters, especially some of his recent Kickstarted efforts are bloody magnificent! But, a colour scheme popped into my head for Apollo and I really wanted to try it out. So far I think it's working well. The metallic blue is just a basecoat right now - Vallejo Model Colour Gunmetal Blue - which is a new paint in my collection and one I'm going to be experimenting with quite a lot this year I suspect. It has great coverage, lovely shine and I think there's tons of potential for cool effects.

I'll probably wait until I've finished painting the rest of the model before I continue the metallics. I will be doing some drybrushing on the metal and I want to mask the other parts before doing this, otherwise paint could get everywhere!

I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/
