So I'm in the middle of working on 5 figures for my Pathfinder Group members, we are know collectively as The Queen's Hand.

 

  • Stonehaven Gnomes (Mad Scientist & Thief) - Mr. Keen is the Alchemist and Shaddix is the mutated form, a single player uses both figures for his PC. It's a gnome alchemist who uses mutagens to change forms, so the Mad Scientist/Alchemist is the more reasonable half and the Thief/Mutated form is his crazy side. I'll be trying to add little bat wings to the Mad Scientist form as he's got those as a mutation as well. - EDIT - This character was made into a cohort, I'm still going to paint up the figures since I started on them, but the Alchemist will be following the orders of a new Priest of Asmodeus (below Hellknight).

  • Bard, Sandru Vhiski (Reaper) - Alexite is a Chaotic Evil Bard (Detective) is just loves to kill things and use subterfuge to do so. The figure is smiling, I'm going to attempt to use paint to make him look like he's sneering. I've also filed off his goatee and given him a cleft chin.

  • Elf Ranger, Arthal Nightblade (Reaper) - Maloc is a human mercenary fighter (archer) from Mwangi (think Africa) who looks like Heimdall from Thor. I've already filed off his ear points to make him look more human. I'm also planning on giving him a tiny beard (but going to double check on that with the player first before I do so).

  • Not shown - Hellknight who'll be joining us in a few weeks. I need to talk to the player and find out what that character will look like and find a figure for it. Obviously, he'll be the last thing I paint here. Still waiting on hearing back from the Player, will bug him again soon.
     
  • Victus - Priest of Asmodeus, becoming the main character for the Player who also has the crazy Alchemist gnome. Need to find an appropriate figure for this guy.

All of these are evil characters who are part of the Queen's Hand, an elite squad that is on the hunt for a character who committed treason agains the crown. My previous figure (Tiefling Summoner) is the nominal leader of the group.

 

Here are the first pics of the figures as I got them all cleaned up, primed, slathered black wash over them, and then a bit of dry-brushing of the white primer again to bring out some pre-highlights. Finding I like doing this more and more.

Throughout this WIP thread, I'll be asking for some C&C to try to get these all looking good (err evil). So any and all would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like a fun campaign. Also you picked out great minis to represent the art inspiration. Can't wait to see these progress.

It is pretty fun so far. Finished our second session last night. Always fun to find figures that fit the artwork inspiration pics even if a bit of modification is needed on my part. I don't mind doing a little more work to make them look right.

Hooray for evil characters!  ^_^ Looking forward to seeing your work on all of these!

 

MUAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH! Yep, evil characters are FUN as long as they don't turn on each other, which shouldn't happen since we've been threatened by the Queen not to do so or we all die.

If I were painting this "incredible" looking batch of evilness, I would have my color wheel out,

looking at complimentary colors, and trying to come up with ways to use Purple, and black in full intensity.

Those figures are so well sculpted, you could play in the shadows for days, making them very sinister !

Great Choices !

When I paint for others, I'll ask what colors they want me to paint their figures, this is to be more personalized for them. Got a couple of emails out to find out what the archer and the bard should be painted up like.

 

Looking forward to plowing through this group of PC's that's for sure! It'll be a blast.

This looks like a really fun project! Can't wait to see how they turn out. Eventually I'm going to do some "Minis for Me" again, but the last time I tried that I ended up with a disfigured Hero of Spielburg. LOL!

      I've got this mini in the legend of drizzt board game last december and I just hated it right off the bat. The weird pose, lack of details, undefined face, I could go on... Also, something that was quite striking about it was the lack of feminine detalis and a kind of a masculine look of the female ranger  It looked to me more like a man dressed as a female ranger, and I found that quite funny and promising!
       

       
      As I've thought more about it, it reminded me of Doris from "Sherk" and Okama characters from "One Piece", which I both love!
       


       
      So those characters inspired me to paint Catti in a similar fashion, which I believe gave the mini much needed character. I like how it turned out and I think she will make an interesting pc or npc in our dnd campaign! 
      Enjoy!

      So here is the third figure from the set I was working on recently, a female fighter or ranger with staff. Nowadays on the Ral Partha's site, they just call her a fighter, but she originally belonged  to a three piece blister pack of Rangers from Julie Guthrie's "All Things Dark and Dangerous" figure line.
       

       
      Being she was a ranger originally, quite the opposite of the Ranger Archer I just finished a few days ago, I tried to give her a bit more natural colors.  And here is then the group together, and the original image I found from an old catalogue:
       

       
      So anyhow, fun figure to paint, hope you all enjoy!

      Good evening everybody!
      So have been doing lately a lot of classic Julie Guthrie from her Partha days and the last one I've finished is what is currently listed as an Archer, but that previously came in a set of three Rangers in her Partha Line "All Things Dark and Dangerous".
       
      Being he's these days called an archer, I kind of deviated from the typical browns and greens as I kind of wanted some deeper, darker colors. I started off with his lavender shirt and then just kept going with different plums and purples. So he's not too nature-like but he's maybe a moon or night ranger.
       
      Anyway, hope you enjoy him!
       

       
      and here's that image he originally came from back in the eighties.  I've got the two guys done, I'm working now on the gal with the staff, hope to have her done before Memorial day is over:

      Here is the next figure on the list.
      Callie.  I think it’s funny that episode 1 was Cassie, and right next to her is a figure with almost the same name.
       

       
      She had had a weird straight warp to the lower part of her bow.  I boiled that out.  It has stayed in the corrected position for a month now.

       
      This is after Brown Liner.  It looks like an arrow coming out of the quiver, but strange it has no fletching....From the front, maybe a finger?

      So I finished this one two nights ago, didn't get around to taking his photo yesterday because I got home too late last night and it was just too dark to take advantage of natural light.
       
      Here is another Julie Guthrie Ral Partha classic from the eighties a hooded fighter/warrior/ranger with sword and shield.  Being he was originally listed in the eighties as a ranger:

       
      I wanted to give greens and browns, but nowadays being he is just being called a hooded fighter, I still wanted to keep some natural colors but ended up giving him some non-rangery colors on his shield:
       

       
      Also his inner cloak I used the same colors and painted at the same time as the female archer I just finished (her green gloves).  
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy another classic figure from the past!  Julie Guthrie was great back then and she's even greater now!
