IKRPG character Rohan @ about 80% WIP pic
I’ve posted this pic to the forums and other sites, figured I may as well post it here!
Going off my last post about him, I’m finally started to put paintbrush to model as my giddiness to get him done overcame me. He’s pretty much done at the moment. The last remaining items are a custom tattoo I’m going to be doing on the right arm and painting the cloth that hangs at his waist. I’m not quite sure what color to paint that…My original intent was a darker red, but I also may just do it in the Sanguine that I use throughout the figure to avoid bringing too much color into the model…
We’ll see, but he’s going to definitely be finished and sealed for our next IKRPG night!
Starting to look like the boss.
Following Part 1 (of 3 or 4) in this series for the extreme eKreoss, work has begun in earnest!
Read on for much more information and a few more pics on this conversion!
Plazoid’s Bastions Conversions!
Now here is a seriously cool conversion done by my local PG Plarzoid!
This is super timely in a way for me, in that with deciding to do my extreme eKreoss converion, I picked up a pack of Cinerators super cheap. Since i only needed one, I figured I’d attempt to make the rest into a min unit of Exemplar Bastions down the line. Untimely in that our group JUST placed a bits order and now I have to wait for the next one to do it! Wah.
Below are the official studio Bastions as a comparison. Not too shabby.
Privateer Press Studio Bastions
*Cue epic music with chanting*
It’s no secret that I plan to run an eKreoss theme force,it’s been what I’ve wanted to do from the start with my Menite army. Knights, giant robots, and crazy girls…swoon!
But the eKreoss model leaves me a little cold. Maybe it’s the size or proportions, I’m not sure. You look at his art and you can’t help but think “what a badass.” The fluff goes on about how impressive he is, but then he’s this tiny model on the table :/
So back to the art of eKreoss as my inspiration. To me it looked like he was dressed in something more akin to Bastion armor rather than normal Exemplar armor, and since I have been painting Cinerators, I got to thinking about a conversion to make a more “epic” epic Kreoss.
Jus' tryin' ta make a point...
Continuing with my painting ADD, I popped out this test model for one of my converted Kayazy Assassins. I went with a more darker scheme than my usual, since they are assassins after all. I still managed to keep the cloak as the red on the inside, white on the outside, that pretty much everything else that has a cloak/cape has on my Khador. That way they are still tied into the rest of my white Khador with that element.
Still a WIP as I still need to do the cloak (2 brush blending time!) and highlighting and additional detailing everywhere else.
I think that I really like this scheme, although it’s more inline with my Zerkova than my Strakhov.
Who's ugly now?! *shank you very much*
Here’s something that has been in the works for a while but a mixture of not having enough free time lately and missing some tools, have kept me from realizing it. But no more!
It’s been no secret that I (and many others I’m sure) think that the stock Kayazy Assassins are ugly. I set forth to rectify that.
