Troll Sky Raider

The Troll Sky Raider is one of my favorite miniatures from the old Heartbreaker Hobbies Earthdawn line. Not because of some exceptional quality of sculpt.  To be frank, it's lacking in a number of aspects.  But in my mind sky raiders are one of the iconic visuals of the Earthdawn setting.

Stone Golem

This is another miniature painted up for an Earthdawn game and was used as an Obsidiman Wizard until the player decided he wanted to play something else. This one is a Reaper fig that is larger than standard 25mm figures.

Raek

I wish that the Raek was as good in-game as it was as a model. I love this sleek, bitey little guy but I don't see him hitting the table very often. He receieved a much-needed boost in Mk II but I always seemed to spend his points on other options.

Teraph

Just like most of the other Legion models, Hordes fans either love the Terpah or they hate it. I tend to fall on the positive side myself. There's something about the sleek draconic look that I find visually appealing.

Typhon

Typhon proved to be a little more difficult for me to paint than even my Carniveans have, but I was able to get him done before GenCon 09. I wound up missing the Hardcore event I planned on fielding him in but that was different story...

Shredders

The Shredders were the first part of the Legion of Everblight battlebox that I decided to tackle. I figured that they were small enough that they'd be quick to finsih and I'd be able to see my intended color scheme to determine if I liked it. They became a template I would eventually follow on other beasts as my collection grew - light blue skin, bone carapace, and pink gums. Since Shredders are little more than walking mouths in Hordes, I wanted their toothy maws to be suitably prominent.

Harriers

To be honest I'm not all that thrilled with how my Harriers turned out. I don't think the skin is highlighted just right and the gums could have used some more work before I called these guys done. Painting these little winged demons was just a chore, though. I'm not sure why that was. Maybe it's because I already painted four similar models in my Shredders but I just couldn't find any enjoyment in working on them. Still I needed to get them done - I had left them off of their bases so painting would be easier but that made temporarily affixing them to their bases for play difficult.

Angelii

I've found that the serpentine miniatures are some of the most difficult to paint, and the Angelius is the most serpentine Legion miniature there is. I had some good success with my Nephilim and Raek as of late primarily because of the more detailed musculature on those models whereas the more serpentine beasts with their smoother expansive areas of flesh seemed more difficult to pull off realistically.  There's not as many wrinkles, creases, or other hints where to place shadows and highlights.

High Elf Hero

This miniature is an out-of-print Games Workshop High Elf Hero that has had it's headpiece trimmed down to look less phallic. I had originally purchased it for a specific conversion, but never had the time to start it. Instead a player picked this miniature out to use for his Children of the Sun character, so I painted it up for him.

High Elf Shadow Warrior

Yup, yet another gaming miniature. This one was painted up to represent an elven ranger-turned-arcane archer in a old D&D 3.5 game. Traditionally I'm not a fan of the system, but a friend came up with a campaign world I liked that he wanted to run d20 in so I went along with it.
