Olis' works: September - Arena Rex

by Oli aka HonourGuard

Hello again,

some months have passed since my last post. For those of you who do not remember me or are new to Massive Voodoo - here is my profile: Oli aka HonourGuard.

I have decided to start regular postings for every 1 or 2 months, to show you my latest finished figures and projects that are currently on my table. And beside that, I want to be a little part of the big Massive Voodoo wheel.

Today I will start with showing you my Arena Rex miniatures. I pledged in their kickstarter campaing about 2 years ago and 6 months ago I finally got my package. I am a big fan of their figures, because they are really on a very high level..on the highest level I guess in 32mm figures.

Let's start with the first one, Lupa:

The next one is the centurion:

I got a first picture, where you see the model without any colors. Sebastian Archer / Automaton did great job on the muscles, especially on the torso.

Small Tutorial:
Painting a shield with NMM Gold:

1. Preparation of the shield, sandpaper + knife and a primed with Tamiya Grey.
2. Basecoat with M
odel Color Carmine Red and bit of MC Chocolate brown. Shades to black and lights up with MC Vermillion. Painted the base of the Gold, using 2 parts MC Deep Yellow and one part MC Chocolate brown, than I added shadows with mixing more brown and later black in it. Also added some rough Blacklining now.

3. I started with the lights, adding more MC Deep Yellow to the gold base. 

4. Adding white to the yellow to paint final lights of the gold.

5. Added some very thin green washes in the shadow areas of the gold. And correct the gold mistakes with the red color of the shield.


And now the finished miniature:

I tried to create a realistic Gladiator atmosphere with the skin and the dirt and dust effects.

And now the last miniature and for today: Vargr

If you like small and very detailed miniatures you really should give these miniatures a try.
As I know they got their shop running now - link!

Let me know what you think about my last paintjobs.

Best regards
