Eiryss, Angel of Retribution

As interesting as the scenic base the stock Epic Eiryss is perched on is, it illustrates one of the biggest problem with pre-attached scenic bases.  None of my Protectorate models were mounted on anything resembling urban bases, so using eEiryss stock would mean the base not fitting in with the rest of my army.  It's not like I could toss some dirt and gravel around the bottom and call it done.... who puts a chimney in the middle of the wastes?

Human Shadow Priest

I worked on the Shadow Priest, another figure from the old D&D Chainmail line, on and off for a while as a side project.  It was originally meant to carry a shield, but I gave the shield to the a Death Cleric I painted from the same line as part of a weapon swap conversion.

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Valeros, Iconic Male Human Fighter

Although it's a very dynamic pose, I wasn't as much of a fan of Valeros after assembly as I thought I would be.  I picked it - like many of my miniatures - up to use as a character in an RPG.  Even games where we don't use miniatures I tend to do go out and get one that matches a character or too.  It's just one of my more consistent ways I find inspiration for what to paint.

Absylonia, the Terror of Everblight

Absylonia sports quite a bit of detail that takes painting well.  She's very similar to the Forsaken in that respect - made up of different design elements of different models.  It makes her relatively easy to paint as there's not really anything "new" to the Legion about her but the discord of her design stands out on the tabletop.

Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard

I painted Rhoven and his Exemplar honor guard up at the tail end of my Protectorate collection. I've only fielded them once or twice since they were first released, and as such they kept getting pushed back to the end of my painting queue. But as PP's release schedule slowed the past couple years I was finally able to get to them.

Kaelyssa, Night’s Whisper

Of the two Retribution warcasters I've painted at this point, I think Kaelyssa came out better. I really like Garryth's sculpt but hers just turned out far easier to paint.

Garryth, Blade of Retribution

I purchased Kaelyssa and Garryth back when the Retribution of Scyrah was first released just to have them to paint. After a knocking the loosest of the rust off with a few test figures I sat down to see what I could do with my Retribution figures.

Gorman di Wulf, Rogue Alchemist

Although my first try at painting a light source, I was rather pleased with how Gorman turned out. All of his garments were painted in various browns to create a dull, utilitarian look. This was meant to contrast the glowing vials hanging from his waist. I think the end result really highlights the vials.

Nephilim Soldier

I tried something a little bit different with the Nephilim here compared with the rest of my early beasts. Instead of using a Sky Blue to highlight my Midnight Blue I use for a base coat I went with Rain Grey, hoping the result would be slightly more muted when compared with the Carnivean and the others. I think the experiment was a success, and the more detailed musculature on the Nephilim here really brought out the difference.
