October minis – Update 3

Blighted Nyss Swordsman Abbot & Champion, Blighted Nyss Warlord (x2), Black Frost Shard, Rhyas 1

The blues and browns are coming along.  I have no idea what was going on with the middle picture – my tablet decided the color temperature was totally different.  (I decided not to worry about it, since they are just WIP pics)

Sorceress and Hellion (x2)

After being out of town for nearly two weeks, I’m back in the painting groove attempting to hit 30 points this month.  The first batch of finished minis are a pair of Blight Nyss Sorceresses and their Hellion mounts.

Colors are my standard Legion of Everblight scheme – I did more work with the airbrush this time, in particular the blends to Snow Shadow on the top of the Hellion were done with the airbrush.  The other thing I did was a bit more edge highlighting.  The skulls are from GW’s new box of skulls – very convenient to clip off a few and glue them to the base.

Pictures were taken with my new Surface Pro 2017 with HDR mode enabled.  HDR makes the pictures look a bit nicer but stretch the contrast a bit more than reality.  Compare:

Onyx, Master Assassin

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).

Sinzirith, Blood Vestal High Priestess

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.
