Dark Elf Corsair Conversion

My converted Dark Elf Corsair was my second attempt at NMM, which I quickly learned photographs better than it looks in person in my mind. He was painted up to serve as my warband leader, and served quite well in the role.  The ninja elf earned himself a reputation on the table.  Maybe my painted figures performed better back then after all.

Dark Elf Blackguard

The Dark Elf Black Guard were originally used to represent Fell Blades in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As some of my earliest pieces, they really show my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techinques of the time. As unimpressive as they are now putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then.

Rictur Diehn

This miniature was inspired by a version painted by Jen Haley - her paint job was the only reason I picked this mini up. Rictur was probably the first mini I felt I did a decent job on, though hers is far better. This miniatures flesh was done in craft paints way back before I started using Vallejos. The cloak shading is a little deeper in person, but for one of my earlier minis, I was very happy with the smoothness of it.

Eiryss, Mage-Hunter of Ios (Alternate Sculpt)

This alternate sculpt of Eiryss, Mage-Hunter of Ios was available as a giveaway to people who sent the redemption form in a few issues of No Quarter magazine in to Privateer Press. Although I much prefer the dynamic nature of the original pose this one is definitely a higher quality sculpt overall.

Stern Kestrelmen

This figure was chosen by the player of our "knight in shining armor" character in the rotating GM game to use on the tabletop, so I went with bright plate armor accentuated with a bright regal blue. The stock figure is armed with a sword but I swapped it out for a hammer from the Games Workshop Mordheim Mercenary Sprue at the player's request.

Vayl, Disciple of Everblight

For the most part Vayl was a pretty standard paint job - a more muted dark blue cloak over blue robes with basic cool metallics. The colors are slightly more distinct in person, but the similarity between the two was intentional. My Nyssian paint scheme is all about being monochromatic and cold and I think these two colors together really help convey that. I went with a rather risqué way of painting her up; my initial intent was to take a light ink and make her chest and stomach look as if it was covered in translucent fabric like Vayl's concept art in Hordes: Primal but I decided to change at the last minute and leave it as bare skin.
