Continuing my paint up of all the bosses in the Forge of Fury, here is Kavorgh, painted up to be the Orc Wight Champion.  My first time playing with a light box to get better pictures too :)


I am a sucker for dark palettes, especially when it comes to creating a more realistic, believable, and gritty feel to the models. This orc tickles the right way, and is one of the better ones I've seen on here. When I think orc, I think this. Stellar job my dude. Less can be more, and this shows that.

Amazing range of tones in a limited palette! Crisp work; Kavorgh looks like the stuff of legends to inspire dread and horror. Go to bed, children, or Kavorgh will GET you! 

The hand trophies and the rust-kissed armor plates are excellent.

Wow thanks for the kind words!


While it worked well here, I do think I tend to not make my highlights bright enough.  Things are looking good under bright light, but harder to make out at the table.  (solution:  simply fill our game room with blinding floodlights!)


I have been taking the advice of some painters I like (e.g. Kujo https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyMPU99KvmxIMkD8NZQu1tA) in terms of pallet, keeping things to three main colors (here the olive green, the leather, and the dark red) which really does make this guy at least feel very unified in look.

      Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast.
      I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together.
      I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit.  I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other.

      I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones)

      And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme.  It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

      Next up, a thundering of Giants from Reaper Miniatures Bones 4.  I went for 3 different skin tones this time.

      Speed paint! I’m happy with it though. There’s a lot to paint from the Kickstarter.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!
