Cthulhu! This is the smaller one of course. I started out with a pink base coat. I put a lavender wash above that, and then dry-brushed the whole thing in slime green. I think it came out ok. I like the blood red base.
Probably the best miniature I have yet painted. This wraith is one of the transparent miniatures. I went over it with a blackwash first, trying to get the tears and holes in the robe as dark as possible while leaving the rest of him see-through. Then I painted the sword, base, and gravestone and finally gave him a shellacking.
I am experimenting with painting swords in a different way than giving them a coat of silver or gunmetal. Instead I am trying to paint them in white, grey, and black to look like reflective metal. I have seen some great examples of this online but have sadly been unable to duplicate the effect so far. I do like the sword of the wraith with its blue glowing runes.
My daughter painted this excellent hellhound.
Audrey also painted this miniature, a representation of her character Gale, a fey archer. I love the mona lisa smile and the shadowed eyes.
Mummies! My hobby spanning dearth of mummies comes to an end with the excellent set of four in the vampire set. I experimented with two colors of blue with this pair. I also tried to use lots of gold, copper and bronze.
I have always loved yuanti. They are one of my favorite villain races and show up at some point in most of my campaigns. I painted this guy quickly and traditionally, without any twists or surprises. I think he looks just fine. Oh, I tried to give him some fangs, which met with marginal success, but those glowing red orbs for his eyes came out great. I originally wanted to paint his underbelly a different color, but opted against it, probably due to laziness.
That’s it for this update. On the table right now are a silver dragon, a few golems, and some more characters. Hopefully more friends and family will drop by and allow me to put a paintbrush in their hands. More updates along the way, until the whole 7.4 lb box of over 300 miniatures are all painted.
Here are a few close up shots of some miniatures from Part one.
Each of the twelve goblins is painted a different color. It is hard to get a good photo of them and they might be a tad shinier than I hoped for, but I just cant get enough of these li’l guys.
The female frost giant. I should give her a name, like Helga perhaps.
