Zuriel, first set of pictures is from a few days ago. Now that the sorceresses are done, he’s #1 priority so I can get 30 points done by the end of the month.
Here’s the current status, including wings and base. I don’t like how he’s all hunched over – he’s naturally like that, but I think the base made it a little worse.
Onyx was sitting on my workbench for a while, so I finished her up. I started working on the teal, and just kept going. She went to a weird place – way brighter than I originally intended, but she’s done and she looks fine. She was a freebie anyway, so it’s not like I lost anything painting her weird. The pose is pretty cool (ridiculous, but that’s par for the course with Raging Heroes), and I thought about using her for Legion of Everblight, but there wasn’t a particularly close character she could represent. It was also nice to have a change of pace from red (Khador) and desaturated blue (LoE).
We last heard from the Throne back in May, before all his rules got changed up. He’s better now, so even more incentive to finish. I’m at the stage where I need to base him (I have a skull-covered 120mm base coming) and matte varnish him, then put silver on all the filigree. The sorceress also need painted, but I think she’ll be fast, as she’s a normal sized model (and a Patrick Keith sculpt – always fun to paint).
The first of the new resin minis from Soda Pop Miniatures that I got my hands on, Princess Malya is a beautiful sculpt and fun to paint. I agonized over the last little bit, and between never getting to play Relic Knights and this model’s rules being garbage, she slept on the shelf of shame, waiting for her Prince Charming to show up. I finally finished her off last month, so she can join Mr. Tomm, who’s been done for a year now.
In case the inspiration isn’t obvious, I’ve based her paint job on Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. The base is one of my favorite parts, and I love how it came out – you can even see a bit of reflection in some shots. I definitely got fed up with the dress at points, and just had to leave it in order to move on, but overall am fairly happy. The white in particular, I probably could have redone it using some of the tips from Jen Greenwald’s class that I took last year.
