03433 - Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer

Recommended Posts

Zed, the Gnome Bard Extraordinaire!  He has the gift of gab,and a quick wit!  If he can't talk his way out of trouble, a quick illusion or two, and POOF! he's gone like the wind!


This was my first real attempt at OSL.  Overall, I think it came out pretty good.  Obviously I have some work to do on getting right.  However, when I sent the WIP pick to my buddy I was painting it for, he flipped!  He thought it was amazing, so I decided to call it.  In the picture, I can see where I may have lightened it a little too much.  I am still happy with the way he turned out, being my first real attempt at something like this.  I hope you enjoy him as much as I did painting him!


I give you, Corim Kestrel as ZED THE EXTRAORDINAIRE!!

And as always, CC is welcomed and appreciated!

You already have a really nice mini there. Just take a little time to go back and take the osl down a knotch and he will really rock.

Yeah.  I actually ordered another one to paint up as well.  I am going to try to learn from my mistakes.  In addition, I have been reading up on OSL techniques from Reaper Forums, and a few other places.  I know where I went wrong, and I hope to get better at it!

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      Anyone who has got the male one of these able to tell me how easy it would be to remove his head for use on another mini?

      This was supposed to be a quick tabletop paint job but ended up taking longer as I tried different techniques. It was a fun but tricky one to paint with the limited palette I choose but I like challenging myself and I am very pleased with the final result.

      For your consideration I present my take on the Wizard’s Workshop. This piece was created in response to a challenge issued by a Twitch streamer that I follow. The challenge was themed Fatherly for Fathers Day 2020. I spent several hours searching for the right model until I came across this piece. Inspired by Alexi Z’s example on the Reaper website I decided to try OSL for the first time. (Using an airbrush is almost cheating lol) I wanted to find a unique base for this project and settled on the Shattered Ritual 100mm base by Secret Weapon Miniatures. In addition to the Wizard’s Workshop I also added 77318: Bookshelf, 77248: Crates (Large and Small) (2) and 77249: Large Barrel Small Barrel to the scene
      The Glowing effect was created by adding LIT Green Glow Pigment by Culture Hustle and mixing it with the acrylic paint and applying it with the airbrush. C&C welcome

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.
