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.
I’ve had these minis since 2015, when I first got into Warmachine with the 2015 Khador All-in-One box. They got white primer and a blue ink at the time and then got to play in a lot of games. Then MkIII showed up, and they were warming my shelf. Since they are very nice looking minis, I decided to finally give them a good paint job.
I started off with Black -> White directional highlighting, followed by many coats of very thin glazes. I’ve found that one thick coat destroys all your directional highlights, while many thin coats preserve it. Citadel’s blue glaze and Reaper’s Clear Green and Purple are the main colors here. The gold is the new Reaper Dungeon Dwellers Cursed Gold I picked up at ReaperCon 2018. Some of the browns are Agrax Earthshade, while others are Reaper’s Oiled Leather triad. Base arc is P3 Ordic Olive and basing material is a mix of coarse black ballast, medium dark brown ballast and “Organic Assam” tea leaves (they are veeeery tiny leaves).
Lady Aiyana is a dark elf, as all my elves are, using Reaper’s Dusky Skin triad. You can blame Alpha Omega Hobby’s Adam for the eye-wateringly bright colors. He suggested a bright green to go with the bright blue.
I had some friends over for the 4th and we painted some minis! Well, they painted minis and I advised.
The first row contains Ninja All-Stars chibis from Remy (8), Laurean (adult), and Avi (5)
The second row is Chris, Alicia and Adam (all adults)
AFAIK, none of them have painted minis before. Laurean is an artist though, and it shows.
Female elven brawler and catfolk oracle for my Skull and Shackles game. The catfolk is done, and the brawler will get a little be more work done at some point. Low tabletop and happy players are the goals here.
Minis for two PCs in my new Skull & Shackles game. Female elven brawler and catfolk oracle. Surprisingly, I already had something that was essentially a catfolk pirate (in both male and female varieties, actually). That mini is from Alkemy. The brawler was a bit harder, but I took a Brother of the Seal mini and put a female head on it and voila! I gave them a quick zenithal highlight to hide the surgery and to make them look a little nicer for tomorrow’s game.
