About a year ago is when I picked up a brush again after decades and it was because I started playing D&D again. Unable to quickly find proper representations of our characters, I settled on some Dark Sword Anthropomorphics for the time being. As our characters have developed over the year, I was able to get a better sense of them and finally able to find minis to truly represent who they were.
Our Wood Elf Swashbuckler (02543 - Elladan, Elf)
Our Half-Elf Warlock (03381 - Satheras, Elf Warlock)
Our Dragonborn Cleric of Talos (03389 - Deckard Nightveil, Bone Pander Death Priest. Converted)
Our Goliath Warrior (03724 Thund Bloodwrack, Barbarian. Converted)
Take it easy on me, this is just my seventh mini to paint with three of them being a set of identical orcs. First time trying green stuff any tips for improvements or things you think I did well would be much appreciated. Trying to figure out what worked and what didn't.
This is Archon the Aasimar Warlock and his familiar (which has yet to be named). He was taken as a youth by a fiend for his celestial blood. On the brink of corruption he was rescued by a paladin of the Raven Queen. The Raven Queen then took over his pact and he now serves her hunting those who would defy the natural process of death.
So, here's my first attempt at a "conversion" project. I've been on the lookout for a decent mini for a Worm that Walks for a Pathfinder adventure path that I'm GMing, and I've not found any that I really liked. Therefore, I've decided to (attempt to) make one myself. I've obtained a Satheras metal miniature from the Dark Heaven Legends line, and I'm going to doing some Greenstuff sculpting of worms over his face and hands. This is a whole slew of firsts for me, so we'll see how this whole thing turns out.
Greenstuff is simply amazing. It took no time for me to figure out I could roll it out to almost thread-diameter which would rope up on itself nicely over the hands and face. I smooshed a thin layer of Greenstuff over those parts first to make it easier for the "ropes" of Greenstuff to stick, then rolled out about 3-inch long pieces as thin as I could then looped and coiled them over the base layer. I think the results look pretty good (or at least, as good as a mass of writhing worms can look).
Finished up the month with Bobby Jackson's Satheras, Elf Warlock. This is the metal version. I'll be using him as an NPC in the Pathfinder Game I'm running--Gerinnes Lefelen, an elven wizard who's the de facto ruler of a town and the PC's benefactor . . . for now. Mwah ha ha.
I'd had this mini on my to-get list for quite some time, having wanted to paint it since the moment I saw it, but I must confess that once I started getting into it I found the robes a little silly, regarding what's part of what and what's not. I just kind of winged it, in the end, hehe, without being altogether sure how it should go. But it was still pretty fun.
Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated.
