03725: Moandain, Arch Lich

Recommended Posts

I agree on the name..I'm not a fan of named minis in any case, but a Lich by any name is still a horrifying Thingy.  It this case, FANTASTICALLY painted & BEAUTIFULLY based out weigh other considerations. He certainly is a dramatically posed mini. VERY WELL DONE as always!

I would be horrified to see this hit the table. And then spend a bunch of rounds ogling it. Great work. The colorful nature of it definitely skews regal rather than ostentatious, at least to me. Killer piece.

C'mon people!?!

It's only a letter away from Ultima canon.

Great name for a lich.

 

Great idea for the paint job, well executed.

I particularly like the eldritch Lightning effect.

Ok cool, that's what I was hoping to achieve!

 

The object source lighting is excellent. Great job!

Thanks! It's been one of my big goals for 2015 to get better at OSL.

 

Color scheme works for me.

I appreciate it!

Haha yeah, there is some green stuff worked into different areas where he's assembled so he's a little sturdier than with just superglue. However, he is a little on the delicate side.

 

Awesome job. I wish that I could blend colors as well as you do.

Thanks! I picked up a completely different approach to painting/blending at ReaperCon this year and it helped a ton. This is why I advocate that we painters get together publicly and share knowledge/techniques.

      This is the Bones version.  I used her for an experiment with Contrast paints.  I think it worked ok, but the softer detail gave a less desired effect -- at least on the armor. I had to go over that again with an ink wash.  The red came out very bright.  Maybe I could have gone over that with ink, too, but I liked the vivid contrast. She is a vampire, after all.  I drybrushed a little silver metal for highlights on her armor, looks good in hand, but the flash caught it and it looks like white spots in the pic.

      An experiment with metallic paint.  Not sure I like how he came out, but the players sure won't miss their perception checks for that red armor.  Chopped up his cloak a bit trying to get him on a sculpted base, and the color washed out a bit in the flash.

      For the last few months since Reapercon, I've been focusing on pumping out minis to avoid the rut I got into last year. When I saw that Reaper had released the ghost sailors as metal figures, well... I knew what one of my October projects was going to be. I loved these guys as part of the Bones IV kickstarter, but I've not enjoyed painting plastic minis as much since getting back into metals at the Reapercon melt table, so I was psyched to order them and put in an order that night... Most of the rest I had from Reapercon, although I think I picked up Labella there too.
       
      Either way, these guys painted up gorgeous and easy using my go-to one-two spirit technique! As a firm believer in spooky blue ghosts, I started by priming them white, then giving them a couple layers of Irrisen Blue from the new Pathfinder paintset... My old blue standby was from the HD line and the bottle has faded to the point of illegibility, but it was almost identical. Then once it's dry, I drybrush heavily with Linen White (pure white comes out looking starched, and bluer whites don't show on the blue, but linen is perfect) and... call it a day. Decorate the bases, maybe some pizza... 's good. That said, minis painted using this technique meet my #1 requirement for ghost minis: They're distinctive on the table!
       
      I debated doing some OSL, but decided that it would wash the bases out, unfortunately. I like it better this way, with the bases nice and grounded, and the ghosts spooky and glowing! Lots of fun base details on these, too - 10/10 recommend picking them up if you have any sort of use for them!

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.

      More undead for the table top, because you can never have too many. 
       

       
      These guys bring me to 56 minis painted for the year.
