Excellent jobs on those minis - really well done given the soft details etc.

 

They do have some good sculpts in this series - I may be the only one that wishes they would do an alternate release of them for "advanced" enthusiasts where they were cast in resin or metal so they have better, less soft or poor detail/features....

They do look really good, I like the way you shaded the translucent spell effects too.  ^_^  Did you use regular paint or one of the Tamiya ones or something?  

 

I've got a two-pack of a dwarf mage, I may try stripping the primer from one to see how it looks underneath, the style of the figures isn't bad but the primer seems thick in spots.  You did a great job of making them look good, and at your usual lightning speed, too!

@LittleBluberry I did use Tamiya orange and yellow on the fireballs, but since I don't have blue of that I used a watered down Reaper blue for the other spell effect.

Every nice! Was it hard to paint around the transluscent plastic?

@72moonglum I didn't think that was too hard.  The fingers and the spell effects were translucent, I just painted the bottom of the fingers with skin colors, and the lower part of the effect with heavier orange glaze.

Lovely work. I love the translucent spell effects; I just wish I liked the MINIS more.

I'd be fascinated at a study in removing that awful primer and seeing what they look like under there.

I'd like to see as well.  I'm actually surprised I've not seen a post where someone's done this yet.

      The 20 resin heroes from wave 1.5 of the  Shadows of Brimstone kickstarter.  I believe there are 12 or so more resin heroes and companions to come in wave 2.
       
       

       
      A note about the resin used. I see that there is a lot of internet-hate directed towards the resin models, mainly because of the greasy release agent used not being easy to remove, and that many people prefer plastic for ease of gluing and such. I think many of the complainers are boardgamers more than miniature modellists, which I certainly can see these models posing problems.
      My experience was that with a good scrub in warm soapy water, most of the release agent went away.
      A few of the models needed an extra coat of primer here and there, as I had not gotten the release grease properly off everywhere, but with that extra coat on I have had no problems. In this they are not really any worse than other resin models I have worked on.
      One problem was that many of the parts were small, and had very small gluing surfaces (e.g. wrists to arms) but I got them stuck together by using activator spray on the  superglue to make it bond quickly. Luckily the resin is lightweight, so gluing a small joint is actually enough to hold the part. (Many of these would not have worked with metal miniatures!)
      I avoided the small feet being small gluing surfaces altogether by using the vent-sprue bits still attached to the feet of the models as pins to fix them to the bases by drilling matching holes in the bases and cutting the vents to size instead of all the way off.

      This is a giant frog from Mega Minis (you can't get it from there any more, though. He sold the molds to another company; I'm not sure who) that I have painted up as an Ice Toad for use in FrostGrave games.
      Also part of my Morihalda Challenge.

      I'm not sure what this is supposed to be; I got it as part of a figure lot on Ebay. Maybe an Otyugh? Maybe something C'thulu-ish? In any case I painted it for the Morihalda Challenge.

      An old Ral Partha lady warrior I painted for the Morihalda Challenge. I'm happy with her eyes (only two tries!), but she seems kinda washed out in the pictures. I need to play with the light box more.

      This is an old wizard figure from the ChainMail game. I'm including him as part of my Morihalda Challenge; he was already painted, but I did some touch ups, and based him. I was having a bad day, but didn't want to break my streak, so I needed something quick and easy.
       
      Still trying to get the hang of playing with my wife's light box; he's a little washed out.
