Monday Miniatures: Marsh Troll
Peek below the fold if you want to see some especially frightening color schemes.
Darksword is releasing a new line of Game of Throne Miniatures on Kickstarter. Given that they’ve already sculpted most of the main characters though, this is largely an advertising effort or a sale, not a genuine fundraising effort.
This week I intentionally stayed away from dry brushing (a personal crutch) and tried to uses washes, glazes, and paints thinned with matt medium to create subtle effects. I’m happy with the results.
Magus chose a great color scheme, and I love how his model looks almost underlit.
Jessica had to do some traveling, and wasn’t able to finish her blue color scheme, but I think she was off to a great start.
Arjen’s mini came out looking very saurian to me. I love the eyes and the crocodile skin of the back on this one.
Dirk’s mini came out amazing. Check out the skeleton bursting out of the water. That’s pretty amazing.
Clint also had a late and great entry. I love the yellow on this one; it’s very different from all the other paint jobs.

Hydra – Part 2 A whole week just to detail work think about it. I expect to see some really spectacular results from this one. Come on people – this is the week to blow me away
