I'm running Rise of the Runelords in Pathfinder, and I'm trying to get as many of the main NPCs and villains with cool painted Reaper miniatures as possible. Hopefully posting them online will motivate me to finish all the work I have to do. I've already been at it for a while and completed a few minis. For the most part, I'm trying to match the miniatures with the art in the RotRL Anniversary Edition book.
I will just be posting figure names, not giving away any details about the campaign, but if you're playing in RotRL, you'll obviously have some idea of what the enemies will be, so be warned.
I'm painting these to tabletop quality. I could spend more time to give them that extra edge, but in the end, I have a lot of miniatures to get painted in not a lot of time, so if they end up with some imperfections I don't really care!
On with the minis, in the order that I painted them!
First up is Mr. Bones Ogre, who I painted for the great Bones Ogre journey. This was my first Bones miniature.
Next is Xanesha. A really cool miniature. Was the first time I tried to do actual highlights on black hair, not just drybrushing grey/white overtop. I think it looks alright!
Scarecrow! I tried to make his flesh a little greeny-tinged, in an attempt to make it look decayed. Unfortunately, it sort of turned out looking like green skin. Oh well.
Ameiko Kaijutsu. I'm no Derek Schubert, but I love this figure :P. Planning to add some more to the base, but I'm out of flock and static grass at the moment.
Erylium. I painted the stone base in brown first, and I liked that effect. I don't like how stone turns out when it's only painted in greys. This looks more natural to me.
Nualia. The black armour and sword were tricky. Hopefully they look black and not grey. The demon arm was fun to paint. I'm thinking of painting in the seven-pointed star on her amulet, but I don't know that I have that fine motor control. Ugh. Also her white hair was done with a basecoat of GW bleached bone and then highlighted to white. I worry that it turned out more blonde than white.
That's all for now! Comments, critiques, tips, and questions are welcome!
