Arcadia Quest

Recommended Posts

This thread will track all of my Arcadia Quest painting.  Given that I currently own the retail base game, Beyond the Grave, a few random heroes, and uh, 'lots' on pre-order from the Inferno & Masmorra campaigns, I suspect this thread will not be done anytime in the near future.  :blush:

 

These figures are so well sculpted; they are a joy to paint.  So much character.

Very colorful and expressive! Nice blending work too. Out of curiosity, did you add the bowstring? Or,, is it part of the sculpt?

They're part of the sculpt.

These are awesome!

I love the clean, colourful and cartoony look of your painted minis!

Thanks; that is exactly the look I am going for, so I'm glad that it's coming through!

Finished the troll today (aka Schmetterling).  I decided to try shading the red/orange with purple, and it worked very well.  Unfortunately he didn't want to photo well and it's a little washed out.  You can't the rich purple shadows as well as I'd like...grr!  Edit: I retook the photos with a different backdrop and better light positioning, and that has helped.

I'm considering going back and edging the bases with a dark brown instead of carrying the stones all the way down, something perhaps like this:

I think it gives the figure a bit more definition, but will prevent them from seamlessly blending in with the playing boards.  Any opinions?
