My character for a one-shot pirate D&D game. The mini is Stonehaven Miniature’s Half-orc Spellblade, but she’ll be a Half-orc swashbuckler. I picked her solely based on this being a mini I wanted to paint.
Most of this is ink washes over zenithal priming. The skin is Reaper MSP Bones Orc Skin with a GW Greenshade wash (a little too much blue for my liking, though). Interestingly, the pants and the coat are the same blue, but the difference is 1 layer vs 5+ layers. Also did a bit of TMM on the swords and pauldrons.
Stormwall, which is the same kit as my Hurrikane, with different magnetized bits, plus Stormpods. The only really notable thing is that I put a little more effor into the TMM on the big guns, which I think makes them look a lot nicer.
Several years ago, I commissioned Blue Table Painting to paint my Relic Knights Noh Empire faction. At the time, Kyojin Berserkers were so-so and also came in 1-2 man units. I haven’t played 2.0 yet, but I’ve got a tournament coming up at the beginning of February, and the Berserkers look a bit better plus they come in 1-4 man units now. So I painted up the other 2 that I had using the same paint scheme as Blue Table used. The main difference is that I used a yellow-gold NMM whereas they used red-gold NMM. I wanted to try out my Reaper NMM triad so I didn’t worry about matching that exactly. I airbrushed the skin, and used lots of two-brush blending for the grey so that it would be a fast paint job. All-in-all, probably 10 hours for the pair.
Here they are next to the Blue Table Painting version. The newly-painted guys are on the left.
Unlike most of the rest of my South Khador army, I used a black undercoat on this guy. It was mostly me being lazy since I was priming something else black. Compared to, say, Arlan Strangeways, the effect of the undercoat is obvious. I won’t be lazy in the future, although this does give me good insight into how to keep my “regular” Khador colors more on the red side. Also on the topic of “lazy,” I didn’t mix any color into his resin water, and it’s *too* clear. You actually have to kind of look at it to realize there’s anything there – good on the resin, bad on me.
