Monday Miniatures: Kord
Apparently our painters watch the super bowl, because precious few people took the time this week to try their hands at a barbarian color scheme, but still, there are three paint jobs below that are worth a look.
There were no Kickstarter mini projects worth mentioning this week, so on an unrelated note, I made great progress on another one of my painting projects, my Skaven army. That’s 50 rats down, and another hundred or so to go.
Despite not caring much for this particular mini – I think it turned out fantastically. On a face that small I didn’t even try for the eyes, but many of the details were a lot of fun to pick out. The ice, wolf skin, and glowing runes turned out best I think.
Magnus continues to work on his NMM techniques. He also went with a much warmer color scheme than the rest of this week’s minis.
Arjen’s mini is very grim. You wouldn’t want to cross any barbarian, but this one in particular I would think that you would want to avoid.
Update: Four more barbarians join the fray.
Jess went with a much more colorful scheme than some of the previous paint jobs, and check out the base!
Dirk is showing off again. I’m not sure he knows another way. On behalf of all the readers of thiss blog, I request, nay – I demand – some insight into your crazy glow effects.
Brian’s WIP shows lots of great potential. He hasn’t gotten to the shading yet, but the detail is looking pretty good. Check out that free hand.
Jo went down the same dark road as Arjen, and the result is equally intimidating. The glare needs to be tamped down on most of the model – but it makes for a very cool negative light effect on the sword runes, don’t you think?
2/8/15 – Vaeloth
2/15/15 – Battleguard Golem
2/22/15 – Large Earth Elemental – This one wasn’t a part of the vampire back, but it is a great mini with plenty of detail for the experienced model, and plenty of simple techniques could make it great as a beginner. If you don’t have it, it’s only 7 dollars – you should pick it up.
3/1/15 – Grandmother
3/8/15 – Ghoul Queen
3/15/15 – Teirdeleria

4/5/15 – Ezren
4/12/15 – Almaran

4/26/15 – Red Dragon – Week 1 – this is a big model, so this week are just looking for a WIP.
5/3/15 – Red Dragon – Week 2 – Nows your chance to really show off. You’ve had 2 weeks and a gorgeous sculpt – blow me away.
I went a little further ahead than normal so that if people wanted to procure minis they didn’t have, they would know what they were painting and when. As always, send me your suggestions!
