Relic Knights Black Dragons

Recommended Posts

These came out really good Fanguad! Your blending looks great to me! If anything, I can see what you're saying about the sealer brightening the grays. Darker darks would be nice, but you've got some really sharp lines and blends going on there. Great job! I've been tempted to do a squad of something, but the closest I've come is painting up a group of goblins to fight the Hero of Speilburg, who of course, came out deformed....  but that's neither here nor there. Kudos on an awesome job!

it is true that sometimes something that works at close distance isn't good at table distance!

i had the same feeling with an hex base i've painted....

i've tried to be precise and smooth and at table distance you wouldn't notice ANY effect

I might have gone with a less...gray background for your gray minis. Otherwise, they look great.

 

I tried using a white background, but the miniatures were underexposed.  I only have a few backgrounds, all of which are solid colors.  I will be getting one of those Hanger 18 backgrounds at some point.

It is an interesting, sort of monochromatic paint job. For me, the color of the basing is too close to the figures and they blend in to the point where I am having trouble differentiating the two. The background makes it tough too, but not much you can do there for the moment.

      I skipped some of the other information. Stretch goal, game play, unlocks.
       
      Chibis!

      I haven't posted anything in a while now, but I have been painting quite a bit. Unfortunately I just haven't been able to get good pictures lately. I think it might be because I finished my hobby room now take pictures downstairs in the basement with less natural light. Sadly It means I had to abandon my dungeon setting for pictures and go to regular photo back grounds, But at least I now have a set up that works for taking pictures now. So I'll be playing catch up for  little while with posting some things I've gotten done lately.
       
      So With out further ado, this was my Gencon MHE contest entry for this year, a Noh Empire squad. I actually got a bronze this year even though my group base was still really rough. I was super happy about that
       

       
      Bronze! Like I said my group base was really rough and unfinished, but I don't think it counted against me since it was sort of optional anyway.

       
      Marikan To was my first major attempt at lining. Mostly on her wraps and on her quiver. I think her skin needed more highlighting but I'm not really sure how to highlight smooth skin yet.

       
       
      The Beastmaster I think turned out pretty good. I was very happy with the faces on his armor. His skin looks like it could use a touch more shade, but otherwise I'm happy.
       

       
      The Hounds of Nozuki were a bit tricky since their fur had no detail I had to try and figure out how to make it look interesting (I had the same issue with Marikan To's hair). I think they turned out ok. I was getting a little burned out on the bases by the time I got to these guys.
       

       
      Marikan To's bird companion. His base took the longest and he was just about the last figure I finished since I wasn't entirely sure how and where I wanted his coloration.
      Thanks for looking. Let me no if you have any comments, critiques or advice for next time. I'll post some other stuff I've finished tomorrow.

      I don't usually post my non-Reaper minis here, but I wanted to share this one with you all.  This is Princess Malya, Questing Knight and her cypher Mr. Tomm from Relic Knights.  She was the first of the new resin minis from Soda Pop Miniatures that I got my hands on, and is a beautiful sculpt and was fun to paint.  I agonized over the last little bit, and between never getting to play Relic Knights and this model’s rules being garbage, she slept on the shelf of shame, waiting for her Prince Charming to show up.  I finally finished her off last month, so she can join Mr. Tomm, who’s been done for a year now.
       

       
      In case the inspiration isn’t obvious, I’ve based her paint job on Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.  The base is one of my favorite parts, and I love how it came out – you can even see a bit of reflection in some shots.  I definitely got fed up with the dress at points, and just had to leave it in order to move on, but overall am fairly happy.  The white in particular, I probably could have redone it using some of the tips from Jen Greenwald’s class that I took last year.

      Here's a boss from Super Dungeon Explore.  I split my set with my wife, and I was really surprised that I got to paint this one (she got Jack, so it isn't like I always get the best ones).
       
      I decided to go with a fairly limited color scheme for her.  I don't remember why exactly, but I really did enjoy the pink pumpkin.
       
      Here she is.
