Lady Aiyana and Master Holt

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.

Raging Heroes as Warmahordes proxies

What have I done to myself? I got a bunch of my Raging Heroes troops assembled, converted and primed, along with associated P3 figures.

In no particular order: 2 units of Doom Reaver Swordsmen including UA (one P3 model, one RH). Fenris, his dismount, a RH version of Fenris and a unit of Blighted Nyss Hex Hunters. At least on the Doom Reavers I’m going to have to find a way to force myself to paint them with a decent amount of speed or they’ll never get done.

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:

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!
