Recent 10mm: A Lizard Hero, A Cursed Knight, and a Fire Elemental

Recommended Posts

  I recently completed some 10mm fantasy figures for my "Bear Yourselves Valiantly" armies; which included a Lizardman Hero,  a Cursed Knight Leader, and a Fire Elemental.

   I had a leftover Lizardman figure (I believe he was made by A.I.M.) and thought that he bared a striking resemblance to  a certain purple TV Dinosaur, so couldn't help but paint him up as the great Lizardman Hero, B'uar-Nee!

 Recently I painted three  28mm Barrow Wardens from Reaper's Bones line, and was really pleased with the results (Which you can see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62404-barrow-wardens-77346-thru-48-from-bones-ii/ ). So I thought I would experiment with a Warmaster Chaos Leader I had, to see if the rust effect I had used on the Barrow Wardens, would translate to 10mm.  I'm very pleased with the results, and think I will now paint a unit of Chaos Knights I have as this sort of "Cursed Knight" look.

 lastly, I don't know who made this figure but I received it in a short-lived birthday figure exchange I was part of a few years ago, and since it was 15mm (I think) I never did anything with it.  I came across it the other day; and not knowing what it was supposed to be, was struck by how the sculpted "fur" ?  looked a lot like flames on it.  So I decided to paint him up like a fire elemental.  I think the result is pretty good.

Adorable?!?! They look pretty fierce to me!

I meant adorable in the fiercest sense of the word. :-p

Little known fact: Ewoks are considered a weapon of mass destruction. Not governed by treaties either, unlike photoshopped kittens.

Thanks all for the comments.  :)

 

 

So... A lizard hero, a cursed knight, and a fire elemental walk into a bar...

 

 

Yes, it does sound like the set up for a joke. :)

Ha, I love the B'uar-nee (and he loves me...  {sorry}).  and whatever is on fire looks really cool as a walking incarnation of heat.  You said it was supposed to be covered in fur.... Was it born a wookie?  And played with gas?  Are we watching a new terror weapon in action?

      Done with all Reaper Paints and an AP Wash

      I received this little 3D print with some minis I bought near the beginning of me getting back into painting.  I looked at it and thought it was soooo cool.  Now that months have gone by and I've got more of an eye for things I like and don't like, it became immediately apparent that this thing had a number of flaws.
      1.  3D print left that weird topographic build quality to it.
      2.  The paint has a weird time adhering to it because of the lines in the model
      3.  The size of it is WAY out of proportion for 28mm, unless those are actual full size trees and this is a campfire for giants.
       
      Overall it's just not a very good model.  Yet, it was something that was sitting there calling me out and needed to get painted.  I'll find some use for it, but I honestly think it came out pretty decent.  I used a Stormy Grey from MSP on the rocks w/ GW Agrax Earthshade.  On the wood I used a chocolate brown and brown sand mix (leftover on the palette...just went for it) with a GW Sepia Wash.  Then I used flat red inside the burning log, highlighted up with a lemon yellow and flat red mix, then highlighted again with lemon yellow.  Then dotted with white.  The log was a little on the light side after the first wash, so I took Nuln Oil to it and dulled it down, which worked and gave it that more dark colored effect.  The whole thing looks like it's actually warm when I'm looking at it, so the effect worked!  I'm pretty happy with it.  Now I just gotta find an ogre or giant to put it with....

      After painting a bunch of orcs I was pretty sick of green skin tones, so these Lizardmen Archers are blue.
       
      Also, why they got to be Lizard "men" Reaper? I'm not an expert in sexual dimorphism amongst lizards, but maybe one of these two lizardfolk is actually a female...
       
      All joking aside, I only painted 2 out of this 4 lizardfolk set, and was planning on painting the other two in about a year or so to track any improvements in my skill level.

      Been a long time since I painted a mini but I finally got back to it and painted Errtu to an ok tabletop quality.

      Howdy, all. 
      So, in my coming Reaper order (Thursday can't come soon enough!), I've got Mrs. Bones and the Pathfinder Goblin Pyros. All of these minis have fire of one sort or another, and I've never painted fire before, because, well, I'm a rookie at mini painting. Thankfully, I was smart enough to purchase some firey colors alongside those, namely Fireball Orange and Brilliant Red. I've also got Candlelight Yellow. With that in mind, how should I go about painting flames like these? How should I wash and drybrush the fire also?
       
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
