Trevor's JCoM Miniatures

Well, it took a LOT of time at the workbench, but I got my JCoM miniatures all painted up. Here’s the whole batch: Smile, everyone!

I’ll post photos of individual sets as replies…

Thanks for posting these! This is the only photo of the Banth miniature I’ve ever seen from the side. These are such great sculpts! It’s really a shame Modiphius doesn’t post more photos of them in the store.

I agree. I find it odd that they don’t have painted up samples to show off. For one thing, it would help customers figure out what colours to use!

If I recall, some of the images on the Modiphius site are actually computer-generated renderings from the 3D printing files, as opposed to the actual figures.

Cheers!

I do like that they use computer files to display the details of the miniature, that might otherwise be obscured by a photo. They do that pretty consistently across the site, and I’ve never been disappointed with the detail in the finished miniature. But they should at least add photos from different angles. The Apt is another beautiful miniature that’s done a disservice by the single photo angle they’ve chosen. And I agree, it would be really nice to see them officially painted.

Hello I would like to know how the miniature painter proceed to get the beautifull red skin that figures on the Phantom of Mars campaign guide.

I’ve tryed several different ways:

All with a white undercoat:
A)
Base carmine red
Black ink wash
Enlightening in carmine
Enlightening in orange

B)
Base carmine red
Skin wash
Enlightening in carmine
Enlightening in orange

C)
Base vermilion red
Black ink wash
Enlightening in carmine
Enlightening in orange

D)
Base vermilion red
Skin wash
Enlightening in carmine
Enlightening in orange

E)
Base vermilion red
Sepia wash
Enlightening in carmine
Enlightening in orange

The E seems the less ugly but unfortunately I’ve made my tests on very small miniatures and I’m not sure that on the proper sized ones it will be effective.

If you have some proposal I wd be glad to read your ideas and test it.
Thanks

Hi Shoyandell:
Apologies for not responding sooner.
Thanks for the kind words about the skin tone on my Red Martians. I have good news - it’s incredibly easy.
1 - I primed the figures with white Tamiya surface primer.
2 - I simply applied a wash of Army Painter “Red Tone” over the entire primed figure.
3 - I then picked out details (armour, etc.)
My answer was really that straightforward.
BTW, I used the same approach for the Green Martians: White primer followed by Army Painter “Green Tone”.
Cheers!

Hi again Shoyandell:
After replying, I realized you’re asking about the official figures - not about how I did mine. But in case anybody wants to know… now they do.
