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).

Throne of Everblight

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!

DSM1187: Female Mage on Stairs as Rapunzel

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).
