Hellakin Goregutter, Halfling Thief

I leaned pretty hard on the thief aesthetic when painting Hellakin, going with dark colors all around.  I used a purple similar to my Protectorate forces for the cloak.  I was pretty happy with the dark look next to the black armor but in retrospect I wish I would have gone with a more intense Read more about Hellakin Goregutter, Halfling Thief[…]

Strach, Overlord Hero

Comparing Strach here to the original sculpt I made a few minor changes.  The original sword was damaged pretty much beyond repair, and my attempts at straightening it weakened the blade to the point I decided to replace it completely. I also did a few quick alterations to his right arm, replacing the spell effect Read more about Strach, Overlord Hero[…]

Lord Jester, Mercenary

I was particularly happy with how Lord Jester turned out.  Faces are always hard and this is one of my better products.  Likewise the bright teal jacket turned out to pop sufficiently.  The end result is one of my favorite recent pieces. The base is mostly my usual dirt and grass combo but I found Read more about Lord Jester, Mercenary[…]

Black Legionnaire

The Black Legionnaire is actually a repaint.  It was originally one of my first paint jobs and while functional I wanted another shot at the sculpt.  After a Pinesol soak and scrubbing I forced myself out of my muted-color-safe-zone. I went with the vibrant – stark red and white – and tried to make sure Read more about Black Legionnaire[…]

Deladrin, Female Assassin

I’ve shown Deladrin a while back in a previous post but never got around to posting the finished version.  Only about four years later, no biggie right? Deladrin was started to test out a few techniques – primarily two brush blending on her cloak.  Once I had finished that she became a side piece that I Read more about Deladrin, Female Assassin[…]

Leisynn, Mercenaries Mage

Leisynn probably lived on my painting desk in various stages of completion for close to a couple of years.  I started and stopped him a number of times as I picked up other projects until I decided to finally buckle down and finish him up. Although it didn’t photograph well I was pretty happy with Leisynn’s Read more about Leisynn, Mercenaries Mage[…]

Valdarynn, Arch Mage

I painted Valdarynn up for an arcanist character in the rotating-GM role-playing campaign that I was in in late ’09.  I went with a bright fantasy-esque fiery theme for this figure to match his flavor of magic and his temper. I had initially painted his inner robe yellow but it looked too much like a rain slicker. Read more about Valdarynn, Arch Mage[…]

Ardynn D’Narg, Elven Fighter Mage

Ardynn is yet another miniature inspired by a character in my Earthdawn campaign- this time an NPC Warrior/Nethermancer.  I wanted to stay away from the stereotypical “necromancer black” though so decided to use a few different blues as the miniature’s primary color.   It was hard coming up with a color scheme that said leaned Read more about Ardynn D’Narg, Elven Fighter Mage[…]
