This week’s WIPs

More Legion of Everblighties gracing my paint table.  Relatively close to done on both.

Raek

I got in the groove with this guy and finished him start-to-finish in about a week (admittedly, that week included Thanksgiving weekend).

Here is a comparison shot with the Raek I painted about 2 years ago.  I’m pretty happy with my improvement over that time, especially when it comes to contrast.

Secret Sophie WIP

02970: Rasia, Bladedancer

I used Reaper’s new NMM Gold triad.  It’s so-so, I think.  This has also forced me into doing NMM steel on the swords.  I’ll have to do a little bit of research since they won’t be quite as easy for the highlight placements.

Barbarian Force Four

Some barbarians for an upcoming RPG session.  I decided to be a little more creative than brown, brown, brown and brown.

From left to right: Kingdom Death Lion Armor, 02476: Lorna the Huntress, 77055 Anval Thricedamned and 02528: Kara, Female Archer.  I was going to go all Reaper, but realized I actually don’t have that many male barbarian minis.

Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

Finished!  I tried to get lots of dark colors in there without the mini looking too dark.  I’m very pleased with how they came out.

Red: MSP Red Shadow highlighting up to P3 Khador Base

Brown: MSP Walnut Brown highlighting up through Ruddy Leather and Oiled Leather (and maybe some Burnt Orange)

Blue: MSP Nightmare Blue up to Dragon Blue and Ghost White

Blond Triad for the Hov’s hair, Citadel red-gold for insignia and buttons, and VGA Chainmail silver for the guns.  Some wood color on the gun stock.

Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

WIP of my second project for November.  The goal is for there to be lots of dark colors, so I went with dark blue, dark brown and dark red.  The guns will be a darker metal color as well.  I plan to pop the highlights of each of those colors a bit so the overall look isn’t just “dark.”  Also, it’s really hard to tell, but the right-most kommando is a woman.  Yay, gender equality!
