Another set complete! This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters. Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas. She's from Stonehaven.
The Kitsune. The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand until I started painting! That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.
Just some Human Monks:
This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:
My samurai Tengu Warrior. I could not figure out what was sculpted on his shoulder armor. My wife and I looked under a magnifying glass and decided "Cartoon Troll With Big Nose" and " Exploding Chicken Head On Fire"
They are both different looking and neither is pictured in Reapers stock photos. Tough paint, because I could not find any painted examples online for reference.
The static grass I ordered really helped break up all those browns.
I was really surprised with this model. A friend picked it out and I painted it for him, I don't think I would have looked twice at this model otherwise.
I searched, used some google fu, but I could not find a single painted version of it to use as some kind of reference (which sort of worried me because sometimes I can't figure out what something is on a model.
I love the staff with the face carved at the top (or maybe it was real, cut off and mounted on top? looked like part of the wood to me, but somebody could easily painted it that way) I never even noticed just skimming through Reapers model pages.
I was unsure about the stance he is taking, but once it is painted, I thought it was really cool and looks like he is casting something wicked.
The color combinations: personally I feel like I took a lot of chances, a couple of different color wash experiments, along with the blue/purple highlights and the cosmic stars in his cloak. Never did any of that before.
I had a hard time with the base, but I tried to keep it in the fall theme as the other Tengu I painted only this one I made a little muddy and a little more leafy.
