Arena Rex Aquila

Wow, this sculpt is beautiful...and hoplologically confused...which isn't necessarily a complaint, it may be the design intent to create an amalgamation of weapons and armor from different times and places.

 

Your paint, as ever, is gorgeous. Love the purples, and the various bits of gore are really nicely done. The shield boss is, well, pretty boss.

Hell yeah!  Another client had me paint up two of the three of them.  They just got mailed off today, but it might be a while before I get the pictures dumped onto this computer.

I hadn't thought much about the different eras, but I did notice how his armor choices seem to follow the women of Everquest's tradition.

 

I'm rather fond of that about Arena Rex minis- it just seems like gladiatorial combat is really the right place for less than efficient combat styles that look cool.

 

I believe this guy's faction is a gladiatorial school from Roman-occupied Brittania, and I'm thinking that is where the different styles come in.

 

 

Gorgeous! :wub:

Loving that purple! What colours did you use?

 

I'm not sure I can remember the recipe.  I probably started with Reaper's Imperial Purple, and shaded with either Black Green or Cryx Bane Base (the green was also used as the darkest shade on his skin).  I believe I then highlighted up towards P3 Frostbite (I used the cool colors for the highlights on his skin as well, then switched to a warmer off-white for the final highlights).

*checks Arena Rex' website*

 

Oh. Oh my.

 

Um...I'll be holding a memorial service for my wallet this Sunday. In lieu of flowers, please send paint.

      I'm always glad when a client sends some Arena Rex minis my way- the game has a wonderful set of sculpts.
      Here are the two strangest monsters from their lineup- the chimeric Proximo and the emaciated Wendigo.  The only trouble I have with these pictures is that the gloss doesn't show up (it works on bloodied areas- the practically undead Wendigo has a few areas that should look shiny).

      Medusa is easily among the most beautiful sculpts I've ever painted.  My hat is off to Sebastian Archer, he really outdid himself with this one.
       
      After I posted the first one, another client asked me to paint her up for him.  I mostly followed my original color scheme, except this time I used true metallics in place of the non-metallic metals I used the first time around.
       
      I'll need to paint one up for myself sometime.  She really just screams to be in a competition.
       
      I've posted her to coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
       
       
      The translucent fabrics make me think I ought to go with links for her:

      Here's a Euryale that I got to paint up for a client's Arena Rex game.
       
      I really love the sculpts from the whole line- Arena Rex has some outstanding sculptors working with them.  Anyway, here she is (you were warned that she's topless).
       
      And here's a link to her CMON page for anyone who cares to vote.
