Halfling General (Pirate Captain)

Another character for a one-shot pirate D&D game.  I offered to paint up this guy if anyone agreed to be a halfling and the captain of the ship.

This is a Stonehaven Miniature’s Halfling General, mounted on a 20mm base.  Like the Half-orc Swashbuckler, he was mostly done with ink glazes over zenithal priming.

Half-orc Spellblade

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.

Journeyman Warcaster

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.

Lylyth, Reckoning of Everblight

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.

Khador Widowmakers / South Khador Long Gunners

Khador’s Widowmakers are feared by all of her enemies. The marksmen triply so.

However, when the concept of “elite marksmen” was attempted to be explained to the natives of South Khador, they just didn’t get it. Not only did they throw their rank-and-file at the problem, they insisted on waving about giant flags, which while very patriotic, dramatically hindered their effectiveness as snipers.

(After purchasing an ebay lot, I found myself with 15 widowmaker scouts/marksmen. I was about to trade them away, when I realized I could use them as Long Gunners with a little bit of conversion. Sure they’re not tourney legal as Long Gunners, but it’s not like I participate in tournaments, and it’s not like my opponents would be any more confused than they already were.)
