Otherworld UD7 and Heritage Wights

Recommended Posts

Like most Otherworld minis, these wights are based on early D&D art, and I think they represent the subject well, despite some difficult mold lines on the arms that wound up looking all right with paint.

 

Anyhow, here's a preview before I commit to base decoration. The paint is pretty well near finished, but I welcome any suggestions to improve them.

While cleaning up some stuff I came across a very old wight figure. It has the same fright-wig hairstyle, loincloth, cape, and bent-knee posture, but with hands raised, on about a 10mm square base with a flagstone texture; so I don't think it's Grenadier. Heritage, maybe?

I'll put up a photo along side the others when they're further along.

All right, a pic of the old wight between the Otherworld wights for comparison. Also there's a giant spider I've been working on in the background. Its head was all wrong so I'm reworking that.

The base style is right for the old Heritage stuff....

Are there any markings on the bottom of the base?

 

This guy maybe?

Yes, that appears to be the one, though the hands are a bit deformed on mine thanks to poor storage

I have all three on their bases now. I'm iffy on the Heritage wight since I glued its base to a 25mm plastic round while the other two fit into slots. I did some texturing with some Liquitex Blended Fiber gel to give a look of a mist swirling about their feet.

It's remarkable how well they mesh.

Next time maybe sink the integrated base in to the plastic base to avoid the mismatch. Alternatively matching the base texture or building up the base texture can work. Still, they look great!
