My take on Lylyth 3 (minus the base, which I haven’t even started yet – but it’s the same base I used on the Throne)
The mammoth is a GW Thundertusk. There were lots of fun little details to paint, especially when I left most of the gross things from the kit off. As for the wounds, I figure this guy didn’t take very well to being blighted.
I printed up some Warmachine-style terrain on my new 3D printer, one for myself and a few for my local game store.
This one is pretty dark and drab. Primed with 50/50 Metallic and Black Primer. Grey parts first covered with cheap craft paint, then tinted with miniature paints. Printed with PLA on “High” resolution – .12mm layers.
These ones were primed with just Metallic Primer, the grey is a different color of craft paint, and the bottom is red/blue miniature paint. The red one was printed with PLA at “Hyper” resolution – .05mm layers, and the blue one with ABS at High, but with a thin coat of gap-filling resin over most of it.
His fist shoots electricity, that’s why it’s glowing. Otherwise, fairly standard South Khador colors. He’s on a swamp base with resin water.
Lylyth 3, without her ulks and sleigh of death.
Standard Legion colors. Her armor is a bit different from the other warlocks, so I just traced the edges in silver rather than try to paint all the little doodads inside each plate.
She is really “flat”
Here’s what she’s getting instead of a sleigh
I’ve had these minis since 2015, when I first got into Warmachine with the 2015 Khador All-in-One box. They got white primer and a blue ink at the time and then got to play in a lot of games. Then MkIII showed up, and they were warming my shelf. Since they are very nice looking minis, I decided to finally give them a good paint job.
I started off with Black -> White directional highlighting, followed by many coats of very thin glazes. I’ve found that one thick coat destroys all your directional highlights, while many thin coats preserve it. Citadel’s blue glaze and Reaper’s Clear Green and Purple are the main colors here. The gold is the new Reaper Dungeon Dwellers Cursed Gold I picked up at ReaperCon 2018. Some of the browns are Agrax Earthshade, while others are Reaper’s Oiled Leather triad. Base arc is P3 Ordic Olive and basing material is a mix of coarse black ballast, medium dark brown ballast and “Organic Assam” tea leaves (they are veeeery tiny leaves).
Lady Aiyana is a dark elf, as all my elves are, using Reaper’s Dusky Skin triad. You can blame Alpha Omega Hobby’s Adam for the eye-wateringly bright colors. He suggested a bright green to go with the bright blue.
