This week I painted up Ezren, Icon Wizard, from the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set. Like the figure I posted Monday (Seltyiel, Iconic Magus), which I decided to use as a Fire-themed Elementalist, this one I felt would serve as a good Elementalist too, but an Air-themed one. He just had a very wind blown look about him, and I thought I could accent that by painting some wind designs on his clothing. I'm happy with how he turned out, and together I think they make a great pair of Elementalists for Frostgrave.
Over the weekend I finished up the first of the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus. I've slowly been trying to create a Wizard and Apprentice pair for each of the 10 schools of magic from the Frostgrave core rulebook, and one of the ones I haven't done yet is the Elementalist type. I thought this guy might make a good fire-based Elementalist, so decided to go that direction with my painting. â€‹For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/09/seltyiel-iconic-magus-figure-244-of-266.html
I finished another trio of Talisman minis. I painted these pretty quickly, even the elementalist where I tried to be a little more creative. First up is the knight: It's a nice little figure. I did tint the metal purple and teal, though it isn't too obvious from the pics. I ended up going a little heavier with the black wash on the shield, that provided more contrast than the tint. I'm very happy with the colours of the cloak, I used the Reaper Spattered Crimson, Gory Red and Fresh Blood triad. This was one of the minis that was base coated black before my buddy bought them, so it took a few thick coats of the crimson before I could use the other colours. In hindsight I should have re-basecoated it with grey, I've seen the trouble red has covering a dark colour before. Next up is the monk: I was worried this wouldn't look good, since he is basically in plain robes and has hair the same colour, but it turned out okay. I used Terran Khaki for the robes. This is actually a really nice mini. It also was base coated in a satiny black, so the details weren't obvious, but it has lots of great detail. He is holding a talisman on a rosary-styled chain in his hand, along with a backpack, bedroll, sheathed hatchet, cook-pot, drinking stein and waterskin on his back. It looks better in person, I used Pale Skin for the flesh, he doesn't actually look like a zombie, and his robes look a bit browner and closer to the concept shade. Finally is the elementalist: I was pretty disappointed by this mini. The concept art has a fiery phoenix and a predatory fish, while the mini only has a couple of flaming balls. He is an elf, and has some odd headpiece. Also, I couldn't even tell the colour of his armour and cloak from the art. Of course this just made me less worried about how he turned out. I decided his armour looked green, so I used Reaper's olive triad for that, and mixed some Terran Khaki in with the olive to make the cloak. Then I played around with trying to make blue and orange flames, and did my first try at OSL. I have It didn't turn out perfect (far from it), but it did at least give the impression I was looking for, so overall I'm pretty happy with it. And here's a group shot:
