Tengu / Kenku mini - anyone have any beyond the WOTC ones?

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of Kenku from the WOTC line, but would love something a little different from these. Any suggestions (preferably with pix) would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Alberonn

Helldorado had a kenku assassin type that I dug the look of. Unfortunately, I can't get a pic up due to being at work. Sigh.

Darksword makes a "hawkman" that is pretty cool. I bought one to use as a possible Tengu miniature, but I don't have any pictures yet. The product number is DSM-1307.

There is a company that is making Japanese-inspired figures that has a bird-person in their line. For the life of me I can't recall the company...(& I put a link to them on here a few months back!!!)

I struggled with finding a good mini and settled on this one, it's 32mm and on that base it's a hair taller than the rest of the mini's we use but isn't too far out of scale.

at this point I don't remember what website I got it from but it shouldn't be too hard to find, the book wasn't part of the mini btw.

This fella, "Jakaw Razorbeak", showed up in a box of Paizo Pathfinder "Skull & Shackles" randomized prepaints I added to an Amazon order in order to get free shipping.

 

For prepaints they are pretty nice, but I hate the randomized part.

      Inspired by Doug Sundseth’s red and white legionnaire, I did this mini for a paladin I want to play in an upcoming campaign. This guy offered a lot of fun details, especially the sword and sheath. I used Liquitex basics, with some Agrax Earthshade

      Looks sort of like a Tengu to me. This was part of the first batch of minis I had purchased a few years back. Re-discovered him inside my box of models to eventually get to...and finally got to the tengu.

      Here is my painted rendition of the tengu wizard -- the last of the 3 tengu figures that I sculpted for Reaper.
      (The other 2 figures are the rogue(ninja) and the warrior(samurai).  Click those links for my Show-Off threads.)
      My idea when I designed the figure was "Since crows like to collect shiny stuff, maybe a tengu wizard can work magic using shiny stuff."  Hence, the preponderance of jewelry -- rings, a bracelet, an anklet, and a big octagonal pectoral.  I sculpted the clothing smooth and simple so the painter could add freehand and shininess.
      Someone here on the Reaper Forum (sorry, I forget who) suggested that male and female tengus probably look the same to a casual viewer ... so although I hadn't thought of the wizard as female before, now she is!
      The colors of this zany old bird's feathers and eyes are not as bright as those of the other 2.  Her left eye is clouded over.
       

       
      And here's a group shot:
       

       
       
      I have a few more photos to share, but I won't make you click through to a separate WIP thread.
       
      Before I started painting the figure, I didn't know what colors I would use, whether to harmonize with the cool colors of the other two tengus, or use more contrasting colors
      After applying a coat of black brush-on primer, I painted a careful monochrome value study, using Brown Liner as "black", plus the Shadowed Stone - Stone Grey - Weathered Stone triad.
      I spent about 3 hours on it.
      I forgot to photograph the result, but it was something like this.  (This is a full-color work-in-progress photo that I converted to grayscale electronically.)
       

       
      To get inspiration for the colors, I looked through a few Spectrum art collections on my bookshelf, and chose a painting that was mostly rosy purple and salmon-pink, with some accents of blue, green, and red.
      After about 5 hours of painting colors over the grayscale study, this is how the figure looked (with a blue paper background instead of the gray that I used in the photos at the top of this post):
       

       
      I paused here so I could do some electronic "painting" for the freehand, and see whether the pants would look better green.
       

       
      Then I spent about 4 hours painting the freehand, glazing, texturing, and touchups. 
      One more hour to make the base, and an hour to paint it.
       
      Enjoy!

      First Post! Hard to see in the pictures but his eyes and beak are done in a shiny varnish. 
       
      Im pretty proud of him and might base him at some point. 
       
      Any Critique is welcome!
