First attempt at cell shading on a miniature. It was actually a lot of fun. I know I can make improvements, but I'm pretty happy with it - especially for a first try. I think the whole army done up like this will look rad! http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/matthiaswatchman/4-1.jpg http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/matthiaswatchman/3-1.jpg http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/matthiaswatchman/1-1.jpg http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/matthiaswatchman/2-1.jpg
So my Cerci Speed Circuit is finally up to what I consider table top standards, and I figured I'd share them with the internets, because I love attention, especially after such a long project. So first is a group shot of the speedsters (the buidlings are from Infinity's Operation Icestorm, which works great for RK), I used hobby cork to make the bases, and I do plan to add more crystals to the bases, and probably something else to Malya's base (I guess I'm all about that base) to add a little more variety, but I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out. http://i58.tinypic.com/yzf2t.jpg Yea I was going for some artsy shots, don't shoot me =P. I like how the princess turned out, I like the bright colors of the orange and the blues along with the metal sculpt for Malya. Suicide Queen was sort of an exercise in trying to hold to a theme and at the same time throw it out the window because she don't play by the rules. The whites and blacks make for a nice contrast I think. http://i62.tinypic.com/24ymzp4.jpg http://i62.tinypic.com/6ftruc.jpg The Royal Wrecker, she'll wreck your stuff. I tried to repose the model a bit to give her more of a boxer vibe, though I think it might have been wasted if my friend's reaction is anything to go by. Oh well. I tried to make her fit in more with SQ than Malya's theme, due to the chaotic nature of her abilities. http://i62.tinypic.com/1hvzb4.jpg Good ol' Lug. I love this guy, he was the first Cerci model I painted up and decided on the paint scheme thanks to how well he turned out with the contrasts between the dark blues, blacks and the bright grays and oranges. http://i60.tinypic.com/2aaj4mu.jpg Where would Lug be without Betty? Betty and Rin were a lot of fun to paint up, I did a lot of drybrushing with Rin's hair to try and get her big hair to pop out. I'm not sure the picture does it justice, but I'm happy with how the effect looks. Admittedly I'll have to take some more pictures of these two a little closer (iphone caaaamera! *shake fist*) http://i62.tinypic.com/332mja8.jpg Blurry Mr. Tomn is blurry. A good shot of the first Hell's Belle though. I'm pretty pleased with how she ended up, I like the color scheme and she looks like she'd be hanging out in a biker bar beating people at pool. Or at least with pool cues. http://i61.tinypic.com/2jcufl1.jpg The second racer I wanted to be something brighter and more flashy, I took a little inspiration from an image of a racing outfit I saw and I just new I had to have a red and white motorcycle in my army. http://i62.tinypic.com/dvn4ah.jpg This last model was a lot of work. But it's Celty from Durarara! The helmet I got from a Vanguard from Sedition Wars, and used modeling putty to make the ears. I used some cut plastic to make supports for the cat ears to keep them nice and straight. The Sythe is from the Nightbringer from the Necrons in 40k. I used putty to try and make the arm look like it was morphing into the sythe, but I might go back to it and try and re-do it a bit. The body is Malya's plastic body, it required some clipping and cleaning to get it to fit on the bike. I'm pretty happy with how this mod worked out, I'm a huge Durarara fan and what can I say, Celty is awesome. http://i58.tinypic.com/35l7pj9.jpg Feel free to comment, critique or make suggestions.
