|Hail. hail, the gang's all here!|
So these six minis technically only count as one for my NaMiPaMo goals (all but the Mercenary Assassin were done before November started), but I'm still happy to finally have the unit finished! This is the first time I've set out to paint a GROUP of minis (my attention span is usually limited to one or two at a time) - Paul's request to have each fighter be a different "dragon color" helped keep things interesting. Keep reading for close-ups and technique notes!
|Slithe the Assassin - Mercenary|
|Sir Zien - Foot Knight w/ 1H Broad Sword and Shield|
For the knights with plate armor, I painted the armor in the basic color that Paul and I had agreed upon, used P3 armor wash to add depth, then drybrushed gold over the top to give it a dragon-y sheen (I found this to give more of a glow than just mixing the gold with the base color to begin with). I tried to steer away from making this one look too Green Bay Packers, but the result is that he doesn't pop as much as some of the others - not my favorite.
|Mordant - Dragon Fusilier w/ Blunderbuss|
|Sir Lessen - Foot Knight w/ 2H Dragon Great Axe|
|Kru' Gain - Black Inquisitor|
|Duke Rathar - Dragon Lord|
