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).
Painted as a “fun” mini in between Warmahordes / Secret Santa Projects
A dark elf from Raging Heroes, painted up in my Legion of Everblight colors. I tried to put flames on her sword (there’s something “wreathing” her sword, but I’m not sure what it is), but I don’t think it came off very well. Her clothes are super-silly, so I’ll be glad to paint some Striders here shortly. Let’s review what she’s wearing: one armored boot. one armored shoe + metal bits stuck to her leg. metal bikini bottom with loincloth. metal bikini top that is apparently glued to her breasts, with chains hanging below it. high metal collar. one winged metal pauldron. metal headdress with weird bun thing supporting a headband of skull, and her cape. yep, her cape is attached to her HEAD, not her SHOULDERS. just in case there was any semblance of reasonableness. also, she’s holding a human heart.
Table-top quality, with a little extra time on the two faces. Most fields were base-coated, washed, then lightly glazed with the mid-tone to bring it back. Colors are: Metal is P3 Quicksilver (P3 Armor Wash), MSP HD Winter Blue (GW Drakenhof Nightshade), MSP Imperial Purple (GW Druchii Violet). Skin is MSP Dusky Skin Triad. Hair is White+GW Drakenhof Nightshade Wash. Bases, swords and Farilor’s armor got a final gloss coat over the matte coat. The pole of the standard was removed and replace with steel rod. 2-part epoxy hold the rod to the standard, and I put too much epoxy on there, but at least it’s never coming off.
As a side note, this looks like terrible armor to wear into combat. That dress thing in the back is going to be tripping you up non-stop. I guess that’s why these guys are so slow (for Legion).
I painted these guys up about as quickly as I could manage. 10 dudes still take a long time. At least I didn’t have to put them together (I purchased them from someone who had already assembled them). The lack of quality really shows in the close-ups, but they’ll look fine (if not too impressive) on the tabletop. There are four sculpts total – the leader and then 3 others.
