Thanks! The assault marine is excellent but just to clarify the assault marine is not my work.

I was at the MechaniCon last weekend and had some last minute items to finish. Now its time to get back to Army Men!

Thanks! The skin helps break up the green.

The Army Men are done!!

Just a review of the process.
0. Basecoat with Army Painter Color Primer Army Green
1. Algae wash
2. vgc Sick Green
3. vgc Scorpy Green
4. vgc Livery Green
5. White
6. gww Thraka Green
7. gwf Tallarn Flesh
8. vgc Dwarf Flesh
9. vgc Cadmium Skin
10. vgc Elfic Flesh
11. vw Fleshtone
12. vgc Cadmium Skin & Elfic Flesh w/ drying retarder
13. Assemble
14. Army Painter Anti Shine Matte Varnish
15. Attach to clear base

Overall I'm very pleased with how the army men look. It should be obvious what thy represent once the remainder of the army is finished.

I used a white background for the pics and was surprised at the results. The photos took a fair amount of editing to adjust the exposure. Next time I will try a light gray background.

Next up - Rex

Thanks and take care.

Hi all,

Rogue Wolves wrote:I really love it, only thing is if you are going to do the skin, why not do Hartmans mustache and the yelling mouth?

Thanks.
Good catch, I wasn't sure if anyone would notice. I really only want two colors on the model and I want to keep some of the "toyness" about the model.

I took a couple of pics using a gray background. Overall, it seems to do a better job of showing the model in real life and does not wash out the highlights like the white background.


Work on Rex has begun. I am trying to paint him in a similar manner as the Army Men. The goal is having people recognize Toy Story Rex as the source. Also, by using extreme highlights in an attempt to keep a cartoonish feel, but still have tuckus kickin' looking model.

The greens are the same colors as those from one of the Army Men test models. I will paint the chest white and the claws black. I haven't decided about the things like wires and exhaust pipes and such.


Here are the steps so far:
0 - Army Painter Spray Primer Army Green
1 - vgc Camo Green
2 - lbs - Algae Wash
3 - vgc Dead Flesh

Thanks and take care.

the scales on Rex look nice, and in my oppinion, if you want to keep the stache and mouth green, then i think you should make it a bit darker just to make it different

I like the idea for the stache. I'll try that and see what it looks like before changing the tongue. Thanks.

I finished the green portions of the left arm. I skipped a step in previous post. Here is the corrected list.

0 - Army Painter Spray Primer Army Green
1 - vgc Camo Green
2 - lbs Algae Wash
3 - vgc Camo Green (skipped this one)
4 - vgc Dead Flesh

New Steps
5 - White
6 - Dark Yellow wash - my version based on LBursley's receipes


Anyone have any suggestions regarding colors for the exhaust pipes, wires, etc.?

Thanks and take care

Hi all,

Just a quick update.

Work on Rex is progressing quite nicely. I've finished the "white" portion of Rex's hide. I didn't paint as much white as on the real Rex, mainly because I like the green so much.

I only have a finished pic. The steps are as follows:
7. gwf Deneb Stone
8. White
9. gww Sepia
10. gwf Deneb Stone/White - 50/50 mix

I am happy with black and not using any metallics. It keeps it simple and neat - IMHO.

Thanks and take care

Great work as always, I love this blog.

I only part that I don't love as much is the white on the front of the sarcophagus, I allows envisioned the whole sarcophagus section as representing his whole head, instead of head/torso.

But I can see why you did it to represent the white on his thorax and abdomen.

First, thank you.

Hmm, interesting perspective. I never thought of the sarcophagus as representing the whole head, but now that you mention it I can certainly see it that way. Actually, the whole head - eyes - mouth thing was this most difficult part of the model for me regarding how to best represent Rex. I had considered putting a dinosaur type head on the model, but decided against it because it just looked to damn weird and silly.

A bit of good news. My three year old son saw the model and called it "Rex" without me saying anything.

The picture below was my main reference.

After seeing the reference pic you posted above, I now definitely realize why you painted it the way you did. For some reason I was incorrectly remembering Rex as having a larger head. It's was a real challenge to represent Rex's long tall body on a squat dread frame, but you've done an excellent a job.

And if your son likes it, that's all that really matters

Thanks.

Yeah, Rex's head is fairly small and his tuckus is very ... formidable. The Sentinel legs with dreadnought leg covers helped add some length heft to the lower portion. In my opinion it is still a little light, but overall I'm satisfied.

Hi all,

Just a progress report for Rex.

This part is a bit of a departure from Toy Story Rex. I want the Blood Talons to be obviously Blood Talons and in order to do so I painted the "blood drops" or gems in Red. I know Toy Story Rex doesn't have any red but I thought red would be a good combination with green and black. I hope it doesn't stand out to much.

I remember reading a GW Masterclass article about balance and a triangle (eyes tend to be drawn to objects located in roughly a triangular manner) so I painted the eyes and sensor red as well. I hope it works, so far I am undecided.

Here are the steps for red:
step 18 - gwf mecharite red
step 19 - vgc red gore
step 20 - vgc blazing orange
step 21 - white
step 22 - gww baal red

Rex is almost done. Just have to matte varnish, gloss varnish the red parts, and base. Unless, of course, someone notices something that will make the model look better and I have time to make changes.

Thanks and take care
