Actually getting something done at last, part 3: Drake and Reaper

While waiting for more spray-friendly weather to thaw and dry us out, the Drake figures have gone on the back-burner after finishing all the prep.

At least I have done one of the little Eyes of Kyran, demon-things:

Will this picture too wind up on Ebay to illustrate some scalper flipping the kickstarter miniatures?

Cute little tyke, no? Although the incessant staring can get a bit annoying at times.


Here I have tried the newfangled Citadel technical paint that is supposed to make a “cracked, dried up earth”-look on the base. Not really happy with the results, the cracks are too tiny. I will have to experiment more to see if I can get a better effect.

The mini itself is a very simple basecoat, wash, drybrush, details-job.

As I have four of these, and they are individually summoned, I am thinking to do them wildly different from eath other. I have some ideas for what the next one is to look like.


Next up is the Reaper Bones Stone Golem:

Guite a delightful miniature. Drybrushed on black, with no washes.

Also, the golem is well hard, having no regard for peoples’ flower-beds at all!
