Righty ho then !
A bit of a change of plan with the figure choice, I was ready to give the Perdita cowgirl figure a go, but when I went up to the Pete cave and looked at the figure again it's so small ! And what with my mojo on a bit of a low ebb, I decided to that I had a better give myself half a chance at finishing something and went with the larger Arnie figure

Look she's tiny !


I drilled holes with a pin vice and glued in wire to support the limbs then glued the base together


I drilled a hole in his foot and glued a pin into it then bunged him on a cork to make it easier to handle
And as so much of this figure is black I went with a black undercoat, it's the first time I have worked from an all black base so I have no idea how it will work out


I might try shading and highlighting with the airbrush, I will see how it goes

I went with a white primer for the head

Look it's Arnie "Ged to da choppa !"


This side of his face has bits of skin missing exposing the metal skull (cool !)


While I had the white paint out I sprayed the base too

I want the metal of the skull to be really bright so I based these parts in black


I then mixed a base colour from these two paints ( I have no idea what the colours are as they are just marked base)


I put a dot of each on a pallet and mixed them together 1:1 with water and after a couple of coats Arnie looked like this


And the other side looks like this

Not much but it's a start ! I will try and get some more done in a bit , but I'm still lacking enthusiasm at the moment, could be Aliens intercepting my brain waves ! But it's more than likely a combination of burn out from the Phantom build and a bit of a downer due to the nights drawing in and bad weather.
But I have added another layer of foil to the hat just to be on the safe side

It's looking good there pete. Didn't realize just how small that figure was, so I'll forgive you for putting that aside for now [wink]. With how much work you put into the phantom, and how much you did in such a short time in general on your bench. I think no one would think you hadn't earned yourself some time to take it easy. It was pretty insane how much you did in such a short time. Heck you went from the phantom to that amazing brundlecamo and then back to your phantom, and still finished before I finished just my phantom. So take your time. Don't want you to burn yourself out.

I painted the skull with Vallejo model air silver

I then mixed a pink and painted it around the very edges of where the flesh wounds are (looks purple in the pic lol, I have no idea what I'm doing, seriously I just make it up as I go along !)

I in no way consider myself a figure painter, and am not suggesting the way I do things is the best or correct way (it's the only way I know)
But I'm documenting every step as best I can, and maybe it will be helpful to someone or maybe someone will see if where I am going wrong

Next I wanted to start the first highlighting of the face
So I used these 3 shades and mixed as I was putting it on the figure

It's subtle but you can see the high points are getting lighter

I just gradually lightened the mix and painted it on until I felt it looked right

Next I added a drop of an even lighter tone for the extreme highlights, again mixing as I paint

Sorry it's a blurry pic, but you can still make out the highlights

Looking back at these stages as I post the pics, shows me that I really should have stopped at this point, things start to get a bit harsh further on lol !

Highlighted the skin this side too

Now it's time to start adding some shading, so I added a brown tone to the other colours on the pallete

Mixing as I went along I painted the slightly darker shade into the creases and areas of shadow
I also painted the eye socket white and added a dot of black mixed with blue

I kept darkening the mix and painting into the recesses trying to blend into the previous coats and ended up here
Hair has been painted a mid brown too

I mixed Vallejo modelair red with black and painted around the edge of the wound, gave the eye socket a wash with black and painted the terminator eye red

You can see the where I added the red/black mix in this pic

The eyebrow is tragic lol ! I will have another go at it later

I can see the shading is too heavy and It has managed to remove a bit of the likeness of Arnie
It's so frustrating as I know exactly how I want the effects to look, but lack the skills to make it happen

I will try and make the red eye a bit brighter

The result of this is much better than anything I have managed to achieve in the past, but still woefully short of where I would like it to be lol ! Practice really does make perfect though so it will keep painting the odd figure between builds to try and improve
I think that a lighter touch with the shading and I will be a lot closer

"I'll be back !"
