Kingdom Death: Monster Survivor (Final)

6 July 2018


So, after working for months on the Custodes  – I wanted to pain a small and not top notch project. And honestly, I think it turned out pretty well : ) This will not be a long post, as there is not much to say about the paint-job, nonetheless I think it is worth to check out!

So, here is a Kingdom Death: Monster Survivor

The mini itself is a conversion (as per the previous post ). The body is based on an old Rakham model. Although, I really liked the sculpt, it was cast badly – to the point the helmet would need to be rebuilt. Hence,  I decided to try something else. The head is a standard head from the KD:M set – nothing special was done with it. The helmet was removed, and I drilled a suitable hole for the new one. Furthermore, I also removed the markings on the cloak.

Everything was then painted with a Valleyo Primer.

The whole thing was painted in less than 10 hours.

The Robe:

  • Base: Rainy Grey by Scale 75, with a bit of Yellowed Bone by Valleyo
  • Shades: Added Burgundy Wine by Reaper Miniatures to the base, up to pure Burgundy Wine.
  • Darkest shades: I added Black to Burgundy Wine up to pure Black
  • Highlights (3 steps): all highlights were painted by using the same method as shown in the last post (check the cloak section). It is really simple, you just paint crossed lines. Then another layer of them with a lighter colour. Then another with the lightest. One thing: I added lots Glaze medium to make it easier.
    For this, 1 layer was Base with a bit Linen White, 2 layer was Base + Linen White 1:1 and the last one was pure Linen White.

The mix for the Face:

  • Base: Elf Flesh + Wild Rider Red (8:1), both by Games Workshop
  • Shades: Added Chestnut Brown (by Reaper Miniatures) to the base
  • Darkest shades / Glazes: shaded with Burgundy Wine (again by Reaper Miniatures)
  • Highlights: added Linen White (by Reaper Miniatures) to the base
  • Last highlights / Glazes: pure white

As for the hair it was done with Mars Orange  mixed with Flat Black (both by Scale75). Highlights were done by adding more Mars Orange and Linen White. Finally – there were some glazes with Chestnut Brown (by Reaper Miniatures).


Hope you like this one! Anyway, the next model I will paint will be the Black Gobo.
