Monday Miniatures: Battleguard Golem
This post is extremely late thanks to a botched post last week and traveling for work. But on the brightside, my presentation won an award, so that’s nice, right?
I like the way this one turned out, though I wish I could have taken more time to make some of the highlights more subtle.
David B was shooting for a golem that glowed from within.
Jarrod went for a sold gold monster. It’s a touch loud, but I like it.
Brian went with a tarnished bronze monster. I feel like the loudness of the hilt distracts from the otherwise subtle patinas involved.
Dirk’s simple theme this week belies the subtle OSL he has chosen gto do on the gems. I thought about it, but wasn’t that brave.
Arjen painted some spectacular specular flare and made his jaw an interesting highlight.
David B (the third David to paint this week) painted my favorite, using tarnish and rust to make the metallic multihued.
Magnus went against theme with a patchwork of metals. Great gem!
Loxosceles made a couple really interesting alterations to this mini, no doubt for a pathfinder game. I’d love to hear the backstory that inspired this one.
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 – TBD – suggestions?
3/22/15 – Aina
3/29/15 – Spirit of the Forest
4/5/15 – Ezren
4/12/15 – Almaran
4/19/15 – Zalash
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 – Now’s your chance to really show off. You’ve had 2 weeks and a gorgeous sculpt – blow me away.
