This week’s WIPs

More Legion of Everblighties gracing my paint table.  Relatively close to done on both.

Raek

I got in the groove with this guy and finished him start-to-finish in about a week (admittedly, that week included Thanksgiving weekend).

Here is a comparison shot with the Raek I painted about 2 years ago.  I’m pretty happy with my improvement over that time, especially when it comes to contrast.

Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

Finished!  I tried to get lots of dark colors in there without the mini looking too dark.  I’m very pleased with how they came out.

Red: MSP Red Shadow highlighting up to P3 Khador Base

Brown: MSP Walnut Brown highlighting up through Ruddy Leather and Oiled Leather (and maybe some Burnt Orange)

Blue: MSP Nightmare Blue up to Dragon Blue and Ghost White

Blond Triad for the Hov’s hair, Citadel red-gold for insignia and buttons, and VGA Chainmail silver for the guns.  Some wood color on the gun stock.

Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

WIP of my second project for November.  The goal is for there to be lots of dark colors, so I went with dark blue, dark brown and dark red.  The guns will be a darker metal color as well.  I plan to pop the highlights of each of those colors a bit so the overall look isn’t just “dark.”  Also, it’s really hard to tell, but the right-most kommando is a woman.  Yay, gender equality!

Yuri the Axe, 2 Manhunters

Yuri the Axe, and his two Manhunter friends.  I anticipate using them in Company of Iron, and maybe even throw together a Jaws of the Wolf theme list now that I have them painted.  The cloak was fun to paint – base coat a medium brown, wash, then draw lots of lines in a few different colors, and finally glaze with a few different colors to give it some variation.

Laori Vaus (Satyxis Raider)

Laori Vaus is a sadistic, evil, elven cleric in the current Pathfinder campaign I’m running.  Curiously enough, she’s an ally rather than an enemy.  The PCs have grown rather fond of her in their brief encounters, so she reappeared when we had a guest player.  I painted this mini for that encounter.  The mini is a Satyxis Raider with the horns removed.
