Just kind of silly now. Throne of Everblight really goes from “horrific” to “goofy.”
Finally finished Brun and Lug! I’m very happy with how they turned out. The green backdrop always seems to ruin my pictures, so I might try taking pictures against the purple backdrop.
I’m thinking about making one or both a ReaperCon entry, so I might make some more updates (any suggestions would be welcome!).
Fun and quick to paint. I decided that it was basically a warbeast, so it got the Dark Elf triad for skin colors, and Snow Shadow -> Winter Blue on the armor plates. I used wet blending for the armor plates to get a decent blend fast. I’m still not comfortable with it, but it’s fast and you have to look closely to see the transitions. Lots of monster-mouth going on here, which is VMC Warlord Purple, highlighted with Spectral White then finished with Citadel ‘ardcoat, which is the glossiest sealer I know of.
Vayl2 is my “other” Legion caster, so it will probably see playtime with her. (I’m not sure if it does anything for Fyanna2 – I feel like she wants to engage on the enemy’s side of the board)
My second Neraph kit (the first one from the battle box). Having learned my lesson, I kept the wings on, but magnetized the head and tail. The previous one I painted didn’t have as much contrast as I would have liked, so I took most of the colors a step lighter – in particular, the wings came up to MSP Spectral White from MSP Drow Nipple Pink (which was still used). The body is my standard Legion warbeast scheme: MSP Drow Skin triad for the body, MSP Winter Blue -> MSP Snow Shadow for the armor plates. VGC Warlord Purple for the gums, and MSP Bathalian Chitin for bony bits.
