Big pile of WIPs

Bunch of stuff I’ve been working on.  I know if I try to make individual posts for each it’ll never happen, so here’s the big blob of them.

Throne of Everblight.  Holy crap this thing is big and complex.

Questing Knight Princess Malya and Mr. Tomm

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.

Vacation Week Painting WIPs

I visited my parents for a week, and got in some painting.

Basically finished stuff (except for basing):

A pair of Blighted Nyss Shepherds.  I already have one painted, but I apparently forgot to take a picture of her, so these two look different.

 

Nephilim Bloodseer.  Painted in standard Legion Warbeast/Nephilim colors

   

Wild West Missionary from Reaper.  He’s been sitting at 90% for a couple years.

 

Questing Knight Princess Malya.  Another “almost done” that finally got finished off.

 

WIP:

I got her a day before release at the Reaper Store.  Spent some time at Reaper Paint Club working on her, including getting tips from Anne Foerster.
