Luther WIP 4

Chainmail and helmet done, cloth about 3/4 shaded.



Luther WIP 2

More base coating for Luther. Takes so many coats to clean up where I slopped the walnut liner…I need to be cleaner with that step, it would save me almost an hour.





My entry into the Reaper forums Halloween 2013 contest.


Gravedigger WIP 8

Base drybrushed with the moonlit palette and then lit using the OSL palette. I knocked the moonlit parts down a bit with a dark blue wash after taking the second photo.


Gravedigger glued onto pins, then touched up and varnished. I’m thinking of reshooting the pics, the color got a little wonky with a green shift in the backdrop.



Luther WIP 1

Setting Elquin aside, I decided to return to metal minis for a bit. Went through some of my favorites and Luther requested to be painted. Luther is the kind of dude you should listen to.

Clean up took a while as he had a LOT of flash. Maybe the most I’d ever seen. Slight mold slip visible on the sword and both boots. But even with all that, it was a joy to be working with metal again and I happily cut and filed away. Picked out a base for him, and broke out the nippers and saw to remove that awful broccoli base.

While waiting for the gravedigger’s base to dry I lined Luther with Walnut and hit his chainmail with that blue/walnut mix. I’m going to have to integrate that into my nmm steel because it’s pretty awesome.
