While I started Barnabus Frost in hopes of finishing in time to get in in on Caffineforge’s monday miniature post, he proved a more detailed mini than I first anticipated. Plus finding the right color for his jacket proved elusive. Originally I was going with a blue jacket and purple trim, but it didn't work, so I switched it to the light blue.
I still need to work on figuring out my light box...
And I never got started on Kord for today’s post. *shrug* I do have next week’s Vaeloth already painted up, and the Battleguard Golem should be doable in a single speed painting sitting. The next one after that is the large earth elemental. I don’t own that one, but if my FLGS gets a restock I might grab it… so long as it shows up before Bones II ships. Otherwise it’s straight onto the Grandmother.
I did finish up my Knights of the Dinner Table minis. I’m really pleased with how they came out, even though they ended up being more work than I expected from such simple little minis. I want to take a moment to point out this post from My Blog Is Fight! which shows both sets of the KotDT minis fully painted. While I didn't use his color scheme, I did use his pictures to help show me how to paint them, in the “how the hell do I paint something this tiny to make it look good??” sort of way. Though I totally stole how he did the bases.
Not the finished minis, as I couldn't get a halfway decent pic of them using the light box. Maybe next week.
I've also added some color to a bunch of minis, mostly out of a desire to not waste any paint. Sometimes I only need a teeny-tiny bit of paint, but end up with a full drop. So… grab a mini and slather the color on!
My plan for this next week is to work on the Battleguard Golem, and switch back to working on the Dork Tower minis.
