By Painting Miniatures
Hey guys, me again. This time I am back with a anti paladin I did after a few weeks off to pursue some other things I needed to get done.
I really like how the colors turned out on this one. I was intending for a black suit of armor, but I ended up giving him a sort of Dracula red armor by accident. Only thing I feel i could of done different or improved on was to use less red and more of another color. However I don't have a clue what that other color would of been to be honest.
The photos show the progression, black armor, painted with red. I wanted to give the appearance of black armor caked in the blood of his enemys, while making the cape clearly blood stained on the front where it made sense to be but not on the back. The shield I was aiming for the look of it and the sword being made out of bone but also caked in the well you know I don't need to keep saying it. I feel like the base of the mini could of done with a better paint job but again I wasn't sure the color to use so I went with green grass since I feel like that would make the most sense.
Six skellies, painted quickly during several lunch breaks, with little intent other than to be available for the table.
Given the state of their weapons, it is ironic that I used them to "knock the rust off" a few of my skills.
Color coded for ease of D&D mook-murder. I had a little fun with some traditional heraldic divisions on the shields.
Paints are all Reaper MSP. Blackened Brown played a large role, as did a lovely fleshy-toned sample paint.
... Pictures are quite bad, actually. I may reshoot at home.
Some time ago I picked up some Vallejo Verdigris, but I'm not sure I ever used it. This skeleton was a test case to see how the wash handled. Like most Vallejo, it was a little thick out of the bottle, but the color is right. With a some practice it'll make for easy aging of metal.
First time posting something here, since it's the first time I've felt like something I'd done came out really nicely.
Once upon a time, this was Tierdeleira, but I needed a desert elf archer for a game I'm running, so they stole 77384: Arathanel's bow and quiver and swapped what presumably would have been the traditional green and purple dark elf clothing for something more fitting to the desert. The arrow and hand holding it could have been better, but I don't want to risk the rest of it by trying to redo them. The cloak was a pain but ultimately worth it, I think. It will give the character a very distinctive presence on the tabletop.
Suggestions for improvement welcome, of course.
the first figure I started after alfanso's NMM workshop
The NMM just looked dull so I decided on full Earth and sky reflective armor.
then realized that metal in shadow is less reflective, and turned half barck to regular NMM.
not quite satisfied with the sword it needs better blending now that I look at the detailed pictures. yes i will go back and fix it,.
