Have been feverishly painting away recently. The fruits of all this labour have been some really nice (even in my opinion) Bane Thralls and Epic Eiryss.
Before Christmas, I bought the Epic Eiryss miniature; thinking to use it with my Mercenary army my parents had bought me. On seeing it, my wife immediately wanted one painted for her. Now I have painted several for her previously, always catering to her tastes in colours, etc. I knew this one wasn’t going to be any different, so starting with a base of blue I tried to compliment the colours. This is the first time I have actually done this deliberately, normally I just use colours that I like; or I think work well together. Here is the finished result –
More recently I finally got around to painting my Bane Thralls, which have been waiting since about October. Having already painted a set for a friend, I knew they weren’t going to take long. Took about a week, which was in total about 14 hours actual painting time. When painting my own miniatures, I don’t mind experimenting with techniques. In this case, I happened to see an article in a jewellery making magazine of all places; a technique for corroded bronze/copper. I think it turned out not too badly, what’d ya think?
I have also improved the pictures I am taking of my miniatures, using an old digital camera. It’s not perfect, but it certainly better then my mobile phone.
