Hellakin Goregutter, Halfling Thief

I leaned pretty hard on the thief aesthetic when painting Hellakin, going with dark colors all around.  I used a purple similar to my Protectorate forces for the cloak.  I was pretty happy with the dark look next to the black armor but in retrospect I wish I would have gone with a more intense purple.

Strach, Overlord Hero

Comparing Strach here to the original sculpt I made a few minor changes.  The original sword was damaged pretty much beyond repair, and my attempts at straightening it weakened the blade to the point I decided to replace it completely.

Lord Jester, Mercenary

I was particularly happy with how Lord Jester turned out.  Faces are always hard and this is one of my better products.  Likewise the bright teal jacket turned out to pop sufficiently.  The end result is one of my favorite recent pieces.

Black Legionnaire

The Black Legionnaire is actually a repaint.  It was originally one of my first paint jobs and while functional I wanted another shot at the sculpt.  After a Pinesol soak and scrubbing I forced myself out of my muted-color-safe-zone.

Deladrin, Female Assassin

I've shown Deladrin a while back in a previous post but never got around to posting the finished version.  Only about four years later, no biggie right?

Leisynn, Mercenaries Mage

Leisynn probably lived on my painting desk in various stages of completion for close to a couple of years.  I started and stopped him a number of times as I picked up other projects until I decided to finally buckle down and finish him up.

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.

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.

Valdarynn, Arch Mage

I painted Valdarynn up for an arcanist character in the rotating-GM role-playing campaign that I was in in late '09.  I went with a bright fantasy-esque fiery theme for this figure to match his flavor of magic and his temper. I had initially painted his inner robe yellow but it looked too much like a rain slicker. I repainted it in the gray you see here to try and evoke a little smoke to the robe's fiery color.

Ardynn D’Narg, Elven Fighter Mage

Ardynn is yet another miniature inspired by a character in my Earthdawn campaign- this time an NPC Warrior/Nethermancer.  I wanted to stay away from the stereotypical "necromancer black" though so decided to use a few different blues as the miniature's primary color.
