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.┬áThe 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…
