02807 Lamann Sorcerer

Tranquil Ape

Recommended Posts

My latest piece. I think I did a better job on shades and highlights this time around. As for the base, i need to get some materials..

Also tried a little freehand on this one... a couple of the lines are much fatter than what i wanted but once i started I was committed.



Lessons learned...


Going to stop attaching the mini to a base right off the bat, Im finding it just makes it difficult at times.


Colors behave very different from each other with respect to thinning, glazing and such, gonna take more practice.

Good lessons learned! I'd be proud/excited to see that paint job show up at my gaming table!


My only thought would be to add a 'near white' couple small highlights to a few hard edges on your golds to make them look a little more metallic. You wouldn't need to go crazy, 5 minutes or less.

It never would've occurred to me to paint Lamann in anything other than dark, somber colors. He just has a heel look about him. But he actually looks pretty awesome as a white hat.


I painted mine in bright colors too. I guess you could paint him to look more villainous, but I never thought of him that way.

The cloth & skin are both coming along nicely!


With the staff run a black wash (or blackened brown) over it to pick out the grain. Where there is no grain sculpted paint lines with the wash 2 or 3 layers will create fake grain just fine.


With the gold, I still struggle with NMM so bravo for attempting it so early! To make it better make a pure white:yellow mix, say 50:50 and paint highlights like Adrift suggested on the top surfaces of your gold. Then to really sell it come back with Pure White and paint thin lines (or dots) at the BOTTOM of the prior highlight.


Finally to make the orb look like a crystal. Look at the top picture, notice the little glints of white and the transition from a bright red down to a darker red? When you paint it those glints of white stay where they are but the shading reverses, so darkest shadow at the top, highlight at the bottom.

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!

      Catching a bit of a 1970's version of A Christmas Carol while channel hopping today reminded me that I still had these gals to paint:-

      I was planning on extending Presents base with putty but mine had dried up (Plus I'm not sure I would've had much success reproducing that wooden plank look anyways), so she's going to look a little weird (Although she already looks a little weird in her pirate cosplay).
      Just waiting on them to dry, and then, hopefully, I can start painting them tomorrow.
      Won't get them finished by Christmas, I'll probably still be working on them well into January, but I should be able to finish them eventually.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.
