  1. After a long slog of painting, I have finally finished up my unit of Suspect #7 from Relic Knights. I think she has the coolest story in the whole Relic Knights universe - apparently she teamed up with herself from several different alternate dimensions to do ninja-y mission; she has been confirmed dead six different times, thus the #7 part of the name. I decided to paint each of them in a different scheme, and ended up with purple, gray and red. The swords are all NMM, and while I got the blends done pretty well, I'm not sure I got the placement right. They are all just a straight gradient from Pure White to Blue Liner. I didn't think I'd ever seriously use Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, but it made a nice contrasting color to the purple. The white socks also have a bit of that color mixed in. These models were some of the worst I've dealt with from the Relic Knights line. The poses are a bit awkward and only have one connection point with the figure leaning way over; the detail is pretty bad; and there was a giant mold line running right through the side of their faces. The one with the Hannya mask is an awesome design, even if the execution is flawed. The unit is supposed to be pretty good in the game though, so I'm looking forward to trying them out.
  2. Here is Darkspace Iron Chef, aka “Solid Chef†or “Solid Snack†for Relic Knights. In the Relic Knights lore, occasionally versions of characters from alternate dimensions show up in the Last Galaxy. In this case, Iron Chef (who normally fights for the Star Nebula Corsairs [space pirates]) instead works as a special operative for Black Diamond [space mercenaries]. For scale, Solid Chef sits on a 50mm base. The primary colors are various shades of grey, matching the rest of my Black Diamond rank and file. In order of darkest to lighest: VMC German Grey, RMS Armor Grey (there's not much of this), VMC Basalt Grey, RMS Rainy Grey. The primary component of his fur is RMS Chestnut Gold. I’m very happy with how the carrots came out, but I am most proud of his eyes. They are fairly large and I was able to get dks eyes going on and he doesn’t look too walleyed. I used the same matte vanish as on my Black Dragons but didn’t spray from so far away, which has eliminated most of the graininess.
  3. Here they are, the completed Black Dragon squad and their leader Sophia Drake (previously seen here). Painted primarily with VMC German Grey, VMC Basalt Grey, and RMS Rainy Grey with some RMS Light Blue for the glowy bits. Interestingly, the matte sealer I used (Liquitex Matte Varnish, applied with an airbrush) noticably brightened the grays. These guys are a great example (to me, as least) of the difference between 2 inches in front of your face and 2 feet away on a table. Close up, I see nothing but flaws, but far away they look great. The shields are the roughest bit - I think I need to learn more patience with blending.
  4. This is Sophia Drake from Relic Knights, leader of Black Diamond's elite heavy infantry force, the Black Dragons. My WIP of the Black Dragons is here. She's apparently a little camera shy, so here's a lower angle that shows her face.
  5. Nothing like procrastinating on something else to get work done. So here is my progress on the Black Dragons unit from Relic Knights. Also included is their leader, Sophia Drake. Miniatures are in various stages of complete, with the one on the far left being fully completed. Sophia is not wearing a helmet, and her head is off to the side. I may need to strip it and restart - the German Gray primer doesn't work great with the light skin and pink/purple hair she'll have.
  6. Here comes Black Diamond to save the day... if you've got enough cash, that is. These models are from Soda Pop Miniatures game Relic Knights. This is the contents of a Black Diamond Starter Box. I was in the Kickstarter so I have a lot more than these, but somehow it happened that the starter box items were first. First up, we have Leopold Magnus and Static. Static was posted earlier here. Magnus is EVIL, in case you didn't pick that up from the model. He's the boss of the cadre, and tougher than all the rest of these guys put together. I had a hard time getting smooth blends on the cloak (and eventually said "good enough"), but I probably just need to use more intermediate colors. I couldn't figure out how to shade the body, so I did edge highlights only. Next are the Diamond Corps. These are the run-of-mill minions. They pack a good punch, but can die to a sneeze. The main thing I'm unhappy about is how long it took me to paint them. I probably spent over 20 hours on them total, which is way longer than I felt they deserved. This is the first full unit of something I've painted. I tried to make them fairly boring overall, since they're not the stars of the game. Last up is the M8 Blitz Tank. It's a Chee, which are a race of sentient robots. He's been posted previously as well. The purple bases are standard for Relic Knights, and the base inserts are also from SPM.
