Behold, the Throne of Everblight!
Behold his fearsome maw, which has consumed everything but the skulls of his enemies!
And the absurd amount of silver filigree I had to paint!
Riding on top is Bombshell Miniature’s “Glacia the Winter Witch”
Aww, Goremaw and the Throne had a baby Hellmouth!
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).
Unit of Black Dragons in classic colors, “speed painted.” They were speedy for me, and while they’ll look fine at arm’s length, they have some obviously deficient spots.
There’s a second unit inbound, plus about a half-dozen more guys that need to get painted for that army, so I didn’t want to get fancy.
I haven’t been slacking off in the painting department, I promise! I have a few more [units] that need to be posted, once I bother to take pictures.
But in the meantime, here is Goremaw, from Reaper Bones 3. I painted her up in my Legion of Everblight colors – I like to think this is the adult form of the Hellmouth. Lots of dry brushing and wet blending since I didn’t want to take forever. The detail isn’t so great on the mini, but it doesn’t really matter since this is a “shock and awe” piece, not an “intricate detail” one.
The last thing you’ll ever see…
Momma and baby…
I started painting this pair quite some time ago, putting into practice some of the technique I learned in Jen Greenwald’s class on painting whites. I finally put the finishing touches on them last night. Now I want to play a cool psychic character. I don’t even know if they get familiars or anything.
I painted this mini for my friend TempestDash. He and his family are big fans of Disney princesses and Rapunzel from “Tangled” is their favorite. I did my best to represent her using this Dark Sword mini. I love Patrick Keith’s sculpts. I also love Jessica Rich’s paint jobs featured here http://www.darkswordminiatures.com/shop/index.php/miniatures/elmore-masterworks/dsm1187.html – my first attempt at painting the breasts didn’t look so great so I was able to use the close-ups to get them to come out much better.
My camera was not cooperating today and these pictures didn’t come out too great so I may put them in the “reshoot” bucket (though I’ll have to do it soon, since I’m giving her to TempestDash in less than a month).
