Some miniatures create there own stories as I paint them. Ventar, the Cambion is either the leader of the "Ring of the Fire" or a member depending on if the rest of the group are mortal wizards, or more powerful demons and devils. The Bone staff is not for focusing necromantic power, just a keepsake he removed from the body of a former rival and enchanted himself. a tiefling would not be able to stand among the lava flows. I look forward to using him in the next campaign that gets to the right level. anyway it was painted for the fire theme - Janurary
Vatanis came in my Paint & Take Home Survival Kit, and I started him off as part of the craft paint challenge, but it just wasn't working. So he got set aside for a couple of months, until I saw Cicciopiu's magnificent rendition. I leaned on it heavily for inspiration https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92152-vatanis-maggotcrown-warlock-sku-44052/ He has so, so many details. I could put much more time into this, but I had reached a point where I had to stop.
Finished him rather quickly because he was a breeze to paint. No assembly required is always welcome. Only complaint I might have is these reaper models with already sculpted thick bases that I have to try and work around to base the figure myself. Steals away some of the creativity and fun.
Ok, I meant to do this a lot sooner, but I figured I could use this project to explain a bit about diorama composition. Reapercon is fast approaching! I know folks always try to figure out how to tell a story with miniatures as well as develop a composition that both makes sense to the story and is pleasing to the eye. I have a hard time explaining why some things work well and others don't. But, I can take a miniature I'm painting and explain why I chose to place elements as I did. I hope that might help or at least get the creative juices cooking! So, I'm taking: .
