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 Read more about Eiryss, Angel of Retribution[…]

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I think I’ve already made my biggest critique of this figure in a previous WIP post about it. Working all the metallics reminded me how much I hate painting them.  I always look at each miniature Read more about Hierophant[…]

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 Read more about Absylonia, the Terror of Everblight[…]

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 Read more about Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard[…]

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. One of the new colors I tried out on Garryth and Kaelyss was Reaper Master Series Gunmetal Blue. It’s a very deep, intense color out Read more about Kaelyssa, Night’s Whisper[…]

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. The gray-plated armor was particularly challenging. I had Read more about Garryth, Blade of Retribution[…]

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. The Read more about Gorman di Wulf, Rogue Alchemist[…]

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 Read more about Nephilim Soldier[…]
