'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.
The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.
However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.
In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'
Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.
I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster.
The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out.
My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.
Started a new campaign and wanted to add in a few of the expansion monsters, namely the gorm, the flower knight and possibly the dungbeetle knight. Well see how it goes but the first up was the gorm. Just getting started on it but I wanted thoughts on its direction and if someone has thoughts on increasing the creepy factor. I have noticed that the expansion monsters are a tad further down the rabbit hole than the main game.
The classic gorm is all black but I thought it lacked a certain punch so I changes the head using a baby picture I found and I'm working on blending it back to a greenish blue body. Let me know if anyone has thoughts on what might increase its shock value.
I'll add more pictures if people are interested as I go
Started working on the Echoes of Death set. I have the whole set, but I also have an appalling track record when it comes to actually finishing my Kingdom Death figures, so I'm just building and painting them one at a time.
Starting with the Fighter (who's gigantic):-
So far, I've made a start on her skin:-
It's a basecoat of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Shade Wash.
I stopped here and took a piccy so I could get some idea of where her eyes are, I think buying some sort of magnifier is in my future.
