Miniature Mondays: Malekus, the Burning Truth (Finished)

Malekus is Done

This model has been done for at least a month. Laziness combined with birthdays, family gatherings and general busyness, has stopped me from taking some finished pictures. I will try to be better going forward.

One of the things I need to work on is model prep. After painting, I started to see some mold lines and gaps that should have been filled. This was the first time working with Privateers new plastic which was great to work with. I need to focus on basic model prep and hopefully, future models will not have those glaring mold lines! Overall, I’m happy with the final mini. It’s one of my bests minis which is encouraging. I looked at a few of my early models and I am proud of how far I’ve come. The only way to get better is more practice.

Miniature Mondays: Blood of Martyrs (Finished)

Blood of Martyrs (Finished)

I finally finished the Blood of Martyrs after weeks of sitting on the table. I also played him in a game yesterday with his warcaster Thyra. I had fun painting this model and tried some new blending techniques. I tried to do some two brush blending on the shoulders but it didn’t come out as smooth as I wanted it. It’s a great start though and my technique will get better with more practice.

This model was also a lesson in purchasing miniatures second hand. The sword was broken at the tip and I couldn’t fix it. Also, half of the left fist was cut off, presumably to fit the sword. The next time I purchase a model, I’ll be sure to look at all the pictures first. Let me know what you think in the comments below and thanks for stopping by.
