I started painting this adventuring party about a year ago but they got delayed a lot by lack of time and/or motivation. So I'm really pleased to finally get these finished.

Very nice. I very much appreciate the german coat of arms, but Krass's looks familiar. Does he by any chance possess a chariot with the power of many horses but drawn by none which was made by the wizards who think it is more fashionable to end with an "i" than to begin with one?

 

He has at least one weakness. He lacks the ability to see objects protected by the seal of "Sir Vol Wassen of the Affordable Armour"

There is a WONDERFUL feeling of release whenever any long standing Project gets completed...at least that's been my experience. When the Project turns out this BEAUTIFUL the feeling must be incredible.

CONGRATULATIONS! The time you put in was well spent. The Crew are FANTASTICALLY WELL DONE!

Actually I just plucked a design out of thin air as something simple to paint for a doofus like me who can't paint freehand to save his life.

Well it looks very good. Got me considering using that design sometime in the future.

Love the bright, vibrant colors and the skin tones! Are you priming white? I wouldn't imagine black priming would give that kind of brilliant coloring, but I've been wrong before...

 

Thanks. Yes, I nearly always prime white. Strangely I often find myself worrying that my colours are not bright enough.

 

In this instance the figures for Arael and Hyrekia in particular are meant to represent a couple of quite flamboyant characters, so they ended up brighter than I might normally have painted them.

      I've played in home campaigns and in organized play campaigns (Living Greyhawk, Living Forgotten Realms, Pathfinder Society), but I'm usually the guy with an unpainted metal figure on the table.  Even when I'm using a painted figure, it's a figure that I painted for some other purpose and is "close enough" to represent my character.  In Living Greyhawk, I used a Warhammer elf to represent my main character throughout the character's 16-level career ... and then I sculpted a figure of her for Reaper. (That's this figure: link to Forum post.)
       
      Now I've decided to customize and paint miniatures specific to my characters in Pathfinder Society, so I've created this thread to show them off.
       
      First up: Thaalo.
      (Character build: fighter / sorcerer / dragon disciple, total level 7.)
      He's an Ulfen ("Scandinavian") human, but his parents raised him in the desert land of Osirion ("Egypt"), so his skin is tanned and freckled.  He generally fights unarmed but carries a bow (for ranged attacks) and a longsword (for dealing slashing damage).
      The base figure is 60005 Arael, half-elf cleric (link), a nice lightly-armored figure with the lanky build, stern face, and long hair that I had in mind for Thaalo.  I removed the sword from the figure's hand and sculpted a cestus (spiked boxing-glove) over the stump.  I cut away most of the existing scabbard (at the left hip) and turned it into a pouch, but later decided to add a sheathed sword... on his right hip.  The sword, bow, and quiver are from Reaper weapon packs; I put some putty over the blade of the sword to make a scabbard, and then glued the weapons into place.  Other conversions: remove the pointy ears and patch the hair, add "Nordic" braids, make his eyes a little less deeply set, and add putty over the boots -- basically just sculpt them thicker. (The boots got compressed during the moldmaking and casting processes, and looked a little fragile. Now the figure should be more durable.) 
      Conversions took about 6 hours in total. 
      The priming and painting also took about 6 hours -- with a disproportionate amount on the face and hair.  But I like the facial expression that I achieved, and I painted scales on his neck/jawline and left hand, since dragon disciples develop tough scaly skin.
       
      Thanks for looking,
      Derek
