Dave's WoK Goritsi
« on: Mar 13, 2015 01:10PM »

Here's something different for me, something that's bigger than 6 or 10mm!

I picked up the Wrath of Kings Goritsi Kickstarter. I wasn't a fan of the vampires but the wolves and mercs looked pretty cool. So I sold off the vampire models on eBay and was left with enough to do a full battle game for a mere $40. Pretty good for getting into a new game I thought.

These are what I've been working on at lunch: cleaning up and the mold lines and gluing. The mold lines were average, I spent about 15 minutes a fig cleaning them up. There's some gaps I'll need to putty as well but many of the part joins are very well hidden. The plan's to finish up the assembly first over the next couple of weeks of lunch.





Overall I think they're nice models. I was a little leery of the PVC but the detail is decent enough I think, I did "sharpen" the weapons quite a bit though. I also wasn't a fan of the bases (never did like the big platform types) so I ordered some Renedra ones to use.

Here's what I've been working on the past few weeks on lunch breaks. First up is my second unit of Skorza skirmishers. I didn't like the looks of the spear hafts that came with them, so I went with some brass rod instead.



And here's Duke Anton and Korrad all built up.



Next my stock specialists: Shield Breaker and Scourge Hound.



I didn't like that the specialist didn't have alt sculpts, so I converted my own. I took the top of a Shield Breaker and put it on a spare skirmisher body, swapped out the bottom of the legs and added some thigh grieves.





Finally, I made an alt scourge hound with the female skirmisher, swapping out her weapons, adding the hood and some various armor plates.





Everything needs putty work, I'm hoping to get to that this week after I get my mercs, Lord Hob and Irene put together.

Work continues on the Goritsi. I got the Ravenscar mercenaries built this week along with Lord Hob and Iron Eyes.



Looks like I won't need too much putty on most of these. There's a few hands with sprue gates in them that will need filling but only the characters have gaps (owed to their extra parts). I'm looking to tackle some of that tonight and next week.



Still waiting for the bases for these guys, once I get those I can see about some games while they get painted up.

I got tired of waiting for the bases I ordered to come in, so I canceled that order and decided to work with those that came with the minis.



To add some weight to them I added washers and then filled with up with resin. Overall it was pretty quick and lends a lot of balance to the figs as they're now so bottom heavy.



My plans to add some rocks to a few of them as well using a Woodland Scenics rubber rock mold and the resin. That's why some are still unsanded.



I also finished up puttying the Raverscar, Iron Eyes, Lord Hob and a pack of skirmishers. I also did a bit of the work on my Scourge Hound alternate, she got her arms, weapons and head puttied. I still need to finish the back of the hood and the armor plate areas.

Work continues with the basing and the puttying. I cast up some Woodland Sceneics rocks in resin and scatted them over a quarter of my bases and also added some bigger sand here and there.



I was planning on putting Lord Hob on a rock but couldn't find one that worked well enough, so he just got the grit.



I did find one that work pretty well for one of my alphas though.



And with a bit of fiddling also turned the really funkily positioned female skirmisher sculpt into something more plausible in my opinion. I was pretty happy with how this one came out.



I also based up stock specialists. The variants still need a bit more putty (along with Korrad and the Duke) hopefully they'll come next week and I can get all this primed.

I meant to post these last week but ended up leaving the memory card at home. The Scourge Hound alternate is done, I finished up the last of the putty work on her hood. Once the Shield Breaker alternate is done they'll both get the primer.



I also finished up the flesh on a quad of Ravenscar. I also managed to finish up the hair and started on the socks since these pics.



This week I'll finish up the socks and move on to the black leather parts (boots, gloves and pants).



I'm hoping to finish these guys up for the CMoN Wrath of Kings painting competition that finishes up this month.



I've played three games of Wrath of Kings now. I like it. It's quick and bloody (if you're within charge range of the enemy, something's going to die) with a decent amount of special rules. The biggest part of the games is the motivation (scenario goal) you choose. If you work towards achieving that you're in good shape.

Sorry about the color. I had the camera on the wrong white balance. Work continues anyway.



I took this guy a few steps ahead of everyone just to figure out my colors. I need to finish his leathers, cloak and metals.



The rest are playing catchup, they still need their darker cloth and leather armor.



This week I pretty much finished up the lighter cloth, blue kilt/armor thing and black leather boots, gloves and pants.



The sergeant's jumpsuit got it's base coat too.

I never got around to taking shots of these before the tourney this past weekend. Anyway, here they are: my first squad of Ravenscar. I started in on the eyes and skin of the second squad, but I'm heading back to 6mm land to finish some Thunderbolts for NEAT8. Pics next week, most likey.

I finished these guys up last week but forgot to take a picture at my desk (so the lighting isn't great).



So this is squad two, and Lord Hob is nearly done now as well (just needs grass and maybe some gore on his mace). I'm hoping to get to that this weekend and start back up on Iron Eyes before moving on to the Skorza.

I finished up Lord Hob this morning. I tried out some blood and gore using Tamiya X-27 Clear Red, a black and dark brown. I stippled the mixture onto the mace as it was starting to become tacky.









Iron Eyes is next, then the wolves.

I finished up Iron Eyes this week. My biggest complaint with this model was the lack of detail on the face. Her features were very soft/undefined. I'd be interested to see if there was a resin version and how it compares. Anyway, I think I going to make a slight detour into 10mm in preparation for next Saturday's Warmaster tourney, but after that on to the wolves.

Still working on the wolves, I did their claws this week and started painting all the metal parts gloss black. That's nearly done, not sure if I'll make it for CaptainCon though. Because not a lot on them has changed I've got something else for you guys, my vampires.

I wasn't a fan of the horned heads (I found something I didn't like on all the vampire sculpts) so I asked Bob Naismith (my go-to sculptor for Warmonger Miniatures) to sculpt up some masquerade masks for me. This was the result. I took care of the hair, backs of the heads and the weapon swaps (Wargames Factory spanish cavalry swords).











Finally, this Hestra Nostrollo conversion is all me. I put Hestra's head and hands on a Dark Sword Lannister Lady in Waiting figure. The back from the top of her head to her waist was some of my most extensive putty work to date. I was pretty happy how she came out, so much so that I threw down a base coat and some shading last night. I want to try and paint her dress a pearlescent white, anyone have any tips there? I got some Liquitex Iridescent Medium (which is suppoed to really be pearlescent) to try out.

I finally finished up my Wrath of Kings Skorza Skirmishers. The specialists aren't too far behind, and after them Lord Anton and Korrad. I'm not 100% with how they came out but they're done. Once the rest of the wolves are finished up it's on to painting the Vampires. Hestra is nearly done as well, although I didn't snap any updated pics of her. Maybe I'll get a chance to finish her over the weekend.
