official photo shoot to come later
Quick paint job on Acosta here. Metal drybrushed over black. Then GW Contrast paints on sword and head. I tried to use Contrast black on the cloak, but it was a miserable disaster. He’s black because he’s a Thamarite (evil) and Cygnaran (evil). Base is brown because that’s what color bases my Mercs get. I’d consider painting the Thamarites a separate color since the Morrowans get a separate color, but that’s something I can fix later if I want.
Aisling was *so* fun to paint. She was done entirely at ReaperCon. I used Blood Angels Red Contrast on her hair, smoothed with a bit of P3 Khador Red then some S75 Fluro Red. The white is MSP Pure White, with no additional highlights. A tiny bit of neutral gray shading and lining is all there is.
Sad that she only lasted one encounter. She nearly killed Remi by spawning next to her, then Remi’s dad killed her in a pretty gruesome manner. The moral of her story is don’t kidnap the mafia boss’s only daughter.
I’m super happy with Rook’s NMM hammers and chains. He’s previously been featured on a WIP. I might put some more work into him if I feel like. (specifically, he might get more chest and arm hair).
Photo backdrop from Hangar 18. They had a going-out-of-business sale at ReaperCon. Sad to hear that, but I did pick up a half-dozen new backdrops.
The whole team:
Painted for use as a 40mm flag for use with my Satyxis army. Same colors as usual for the wood: Reddish Brown Badger Stynlyrez primer, Black wash, drybrush S75 Bosh Chestnut, mix in some P3 Hammerfall Khaki for highlights. Used RMS Blackened Steel for the weapons/chains/anchor, highlights courtesy of Vallejo Metal Medium. Grass tufts are from Army Painter.
My character for a one-shot pirate D&D game. The mini is Stonehaven Miniature’s Half-orc Spellblade, but she’ll be a Half-orc swashbuckler. I picked her solely based on this being a mini I wanted to paint.
Most of this is ink washes over zenithal priming. The skin is Reaper MSP Bones Orc Skin with a GW Greenshade wash (a little too much blue for my liking, though). Interestingly, the pants and the coat are the same blue, but the difference is 1 layer vs 5+ layers. Also did a bit of TMM on the swords and pauldrons.
