Here is the warrior/paladin guy from my Dragons Don't Share 2 set. He came without his shield so I used one of the new ones from Bones 3. I realized after I super glued it that I stuck it on wrong. Too bad because my super glue works tremendously well! It's not that big of a deal to me so I went ahead and painted him up. I really like how he turned out and I hope you guys do too!
C&C always welcome.
I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked.
I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe.
Mold lines really weren't too bad.
I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try.
Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details.
For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.

This past week I painted Jurden, Half-Orc Paladin, from the Bones 3 Heroes I Set. I did a weapon swap on him with the new Bones 3 clear weapons, just to experiment. He looked like the kind of senior-ranked, wealthy, individual who could be wielding a magic crystal sword. In looking at this figure, there wasn't anything particularly orc-ish about it, so I decided to just paint it as a regular human.

I had an old metal copy of shaedra sitting primed probably since around the time I started painting. I love the model but haven't had anything to use her for. Our party paladin uses hammers and a shield, and I decided to try a shaedra conversion of her as a chance to try out the new bones weapon sprues.
I'm pretty pleased with the switch of handedness and how natural it came out.
Sorry for the low quality, hard to register details on very old black primer.
