I painted "Eric, the Paladin initiate" as a random mini from Bones 2.
I like his contemplative look and pose... So I decided to make a little vignette/diorama by adding one of the graveyard statue from Bones3.
I call it "Time to Reflect".
The base is an Orange juice cap, and the tree is from Woodland Scenic.
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.
