datetime May 19, 2016 7:52 pm

I’ve been lax on my blog updates and have been chastised publicly for it. For the most part I use Facebook as it’s a little easier and quicker to share my work. I also reach a much larger audience that way. https://www.facebook.com/artisansedge/

Anyway I’m just going to do a huge pic dump and show what I’ve been up to for the last several months. these are in no particular order…

Reaper: Shalelu, Elf Ranger

datetime September 11, 2015 9:57 pm

It took me a while to warm up to this model and it didn’t turn out completely as planned. I think I may have kept the palette a little too monotone. Perhaps a little more variation in the browns and greens would have helped.

This is the second time that I’ve had the chance to paint this mini. This time around it was for commission. The client had seen the first one and wanted something similar done to rep his own player character. I was more than happy to oblige.

Reaper: Queen Ileosa Arabasti of Korvosa

datetime August 23, 2015 8:11 pm

This was a pretty fun commission. Not the easiest project I’ve ever had but satisfying enough in the end. Apparently she’s going to be used as a final confrontation for a group of adventurers in a Pathfinder campaign. I’m looking forward to hearing the story as it unfolds.

I painted these as a way to let off some steam after working on a few commissions. It actually feels good to work on something that doesn’t have a deadline for a change.

Reaper Pathfinder: Mystic Theurge

I actually forgot that I painted this. I do remember that I really enjoyed working on it as it’s a really nice sculpt. I should have taken a bigger pic. Some more angles would have been nice too.  Next time…

Red Wizards of Thay

datetime July 27, 2015 9:35 pm

The Red Wizards of Thay were among the most notorious of villains in the Forgotten Realms lore. These guys were complete assholes. Tyrants, schemers, slavers and more. They’ve been an interest of mine after fighting against some of them in the Bioware game Mask of the Betrayer.

These two Reaper models have been on and off my paint table for a couple of years now. I got tired of seeing them unfinished so it was time to get them done and gone. Painting them up to represent a pair of Red Wizards made it an interesting project.

What made them fun in particular was fooling around with the red highlights. The robes were essentially finished a while back and after picking them up again I thought they looked a little dull. I wanted to make the red “pop” so I tried to highlight them even further with an even brighter colour. I picked up a bottle of Golden High Flow Acrylics Fluorescent Orange and gave that a try. These are the results. I think I’ll be doing this again…

I don’t get to spend enough time painting for myself. So much of what I do is commission work for other people. I think it was time for me spend a little effort on something for myself so I went with, Daemonkin. Nice and easy and I also get to play with red, a colour I really enjoy working with more than any other. Much fun was had. So much so that I think I’ll keep going and see how far I get. At least before my limited attention span gets the better of me and leads me in another direction….

Reaper Pathfinder: Hook Mountain Ogre #1

datetime May 22, 2015 7:46 pm

I remember painting this model but I don’t remember when that was. I think it was about two years ago. I’m not sure anymore. Anyway I really like it.

Reaper: Dwarfs

datetime May 18, 2015 8:30 pm

 

A couple of Dwarfs for the cabinet. I’ve painted both of these before so nothing terribly new here. I do think I’ve done a better job this time around so I guess that counts for something.

Reaper Miniatures: Braug, Ogre Warrior

datetime May 12, 2015 8:10 pm

I have no idea what prompted me to paint this model other than it was laying around and I had an inexplicable urge.  I don’t usually paint many monster type models but I’m glad I did. In fact I think I might paint up a few more. It was fun playing around with non human skin tones like this. When you paint humans (and other humanoid types like Elves and Dwarfs)  you really have to stick within a limited range. Not so much with… Ogres. So all in all it was nice to step outside of the box for a change.

Reaper: A couple of Rangers

datetime April 7, 2015 10:13 pm

An elf and human Ranger. The Elf was a pain in the ass in particular. I really couldn’t decide what to do with the armour. It was hard to figure out what was what. Is it leather? Metal? I had no idea so I flipped a coin and went with metal for the most part. The human Ranger was relatively straight forward.
