Lidless Eye Hobbies in Frostgrave: The Wizards

Recommended Posts

So, I realized something about my Frostgrave collection: it's lacking painted Wizards!  Something I could easily fix.

 

After the "Into the Breeding Pits" Gnickstarter came in, I scoured my collection for appropriate arcane types.  Most had been sitting in boxes unloved for some time.

My hope is to be able to run demos with these additions representing various schools.

 

First, the gathering of Schools:

A Warmage from the old Chainmail line of D&D minis, who I think seems best suited to be an Elementalist:

A Wizard from the Warcrow range, who may instead see use as an Apothecary in the planned Arabian Nights style warband:

Frostgrave is the best thing to happen to old models recently!

 

Seriously.  One of the nicest things about Reaper's website is the release dates of each mini being posted, so I can know I've had some guy sitting primed in a box for thirteen years before I finished him.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?
