An older miniature I started years ago, but finished recently. I think it was mostly the weapons (shading) and dirty shirt missing. I would say the paint job is average, but I do like the miniature.
I decided to go for a simple, but interesting base, featuring a Nolzur's bottle and Thomarillion barrel.
A combination of vacation, busy, and depressed has kept me quiet for a while, but I'm back!
These were actually painted up during the winter, but after I took pictures I realized they had no haloes and that WOULDN'T do. Pro-tip: gold-colored jump rings are great.
And then I got a nice piece of paper for a background and took new photos last week.
Had a lot of fun with the wings on these, and the Enochian glyphs on the robes.
Here are some Nolzur's Aasimar magic-users:
and an Aasimar Paladin and 77364, the Angel of Shadows.

And here's 77363, the Deva. What a magnificent wingspan.
And the Solar, 77594. The leonine features of this one make it look like one of the angels of eschatological vision, with beast features and skin of glowing bronze (I love using metallic complexions for Celestial beings).
More of these greater beings:
These, like the Genies, are powerfully weird to be around, an intrusion of a higher and more solid reality. Machen's "The Great Return" weird at the very least. From more prolonged exposure, expect stigmata, bleeding myrrh or rosewater, spontaneous lily growth, Saves vs. Enlightenment (as Stun, but you gain a piece of cosmic truth), "merciful" weapons that do damage with no pain, and of course the loose teeth, hair-shedding, and skin problems that come from excessive radiation dosage (for what else is radiant damage)? If you get Holy Cancer from the ultra-high-frequency GLORY, in three to five months the tumor detaches and flies off as a newborn putto. (I'd say cherub, but the cherubim look more like shoggoth orreries than fat winged babies. These Beings shown here are at the very normal end of the spectrum of Angel Weirdness. The farther end requires higher-dimensional topology to portray.)
I still have to figure out how to take decent pictures of my finished minis after my trusty Powershot gave up last year.
In the meantime I started another mini 77133: Gruff Grimecleaver, Dwarf Pirate. Pretty fun sculpt (no conversions this time) that hibernated with a basecoat in my drawer. So time to finish him. I will definitely add a bit of smoke to his pistol.
I think the striped pants and beard are finished and the shirt is getting there, too. Metals got some shading. The skin may need some highlights.
Leather, wood and base are still just the basecoat.
C&C always welcome.
