Wizkids Elves

Recommended Posts

Here is a trio of Wizkids elves painted up for tabletop. It was very annoying to get to the bowman's face - so its not really painted in detail. I have mixed feeling about wizkids humanoids.... I feel a bit grumpy about how these didn't turn out, but its' my fault... I do like the yellow velveteen effect I got on the one cloak...

I agree with you about their humanoid figures, I like a lot of their monsters, though.

 

If you're happy with how the yellow cloak turned out it was worth the effort to do; now you'll be able to take what you learned here and use it elsewhere. :winkthumbs:

I'd agree with the above, the humanoids are really hit or miss from wizkids, the monsters tend to be alright. But yes, I've definitely had my fair share of play-dough faces on the people. NIce work on that cloak!

I want to try some WizKids, they are always staring at me and tempting me when I'm at my FLGS.  Maybe someday.

 

These look great even though it sounds like they were working against you a bit

Thanks for all the kind words! I really do have mixed feeling about the wizkids humanoids - on the one hand I like the slender builds of them and some of the poses - on the other hand detail can be shallow and a bit odd - somehow the folds in the cloaks seem strange to me, and I have a hard time painting them.

Exactly! Most of the monster figs are rad and have great detail, as do most of the nick-nacks (I love the telescope and sextet). But the humanoids are all just meh and hard to work with.

      This was kind of fun and easy to paint until it came to the base which was factory attached. Painting between every leg was a tedious nightmare.

      The black-lining to make it look 2d got tiresome as evidenced by a few sloppier lines. But overall was a fun challenge.

      Finished and based him! 
      @DragonWyrm great, great call on using the matte medium on the translucent to get acrylic to adhere and still keep its transparency!  I can't believe it worked as well as it did. You're a genius. 
       
      Ended up using the matte medium, then green ink, then leveled up with yellow dry brush, then did a white touch up to show motion.  Came out great! 
       
      Thank you for the tip.  Genius!

      While waiting for the  Dark Depths expansion from Bones 5, I got a little into the nautical theme. After being some example of the shark from the WizKids deep cuts line. While gap filling with green stuff, I decided that just painting the shark would be boring. So I sculpted a really basic tail and magnetised it. Sure the tail is really basic and I am missing a couple of the smaller fins, but it does work for its intended purpose. 
       
      If I ever decide to return to this project, I may make a transparent base that would hold the shark off the ground. Allowing it to double as either a jumping shark or a swimming one.

      Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.
