I offered to paint up some RPG characters for a random person at my FLGS. I only got one suggestion, a half-elf paladin with a green knight vibe. Turanil here was a great candidate, and he got painted up over the course of last weekend. MSP Grass Green, up through Reaper NPP Poison Green and MSP Alien Goo for the highlights. Used Violet Shadow for color contrast in the shadows. NMM because I was feeling like it (Reaper’s Gold NMM Triad for the golds, various blues for the steel).
Reaper 77070: Aviriel Tellerion, Elf Paladin sculpted by Werner Klocke.
Poor Aviriel was painted in 45 minutes using crappy brushes and a fixed palette as part of a ReaperCon ’15 speedpainting event. She won 2nd place (out of 8). Although I didn’t win, I did get my revenge on Corporea – last year she beat me (soundly), but this year she was 3rd to my 2nd. Aviriel has to sit in the far back corner of my display case with last year’s speed paint.
I started playing in a new 5E campaign run by one of my friends, and dug around in my minis box for characters for some of the other players. So far faces only, plus an undercoat for some metallics. The characters are members of an organization nicknamed “The Browncloaks,” so I gave them each a nice brown color on a prominent field – though neither of these miniatures actually has a cloak.

This guy has the trait “Impeccable Hair” – unfortunately this miniature is partially bald, but I will make sure to make his beard amazing.
Next up is E’s human paladin, played by “Duke Gerard” from Reaper Miniatures (Bones). He’s supposed to be older, so I have him salt-and-pepper hair and wrinkles. The forehead wrinkles look okay, but the other ones seem kind of weird.
