Last entry for the World of Twilight painting challenge this month

Hey,

Here's my last entry for the January painting challenge.

To be honest, I had hoped to get more miniatures done, but work and family keep interfering :).
I had actually planned to do my grishak horde, but it would have been very monotonous painting, so I switched to other miniatures.
But, I did make some progress and I'm not entirely disappointed by the number of miniatures I managed to finish.

Right now I have an unfinished Kelahn on my painting desk, that I had hoped to show together with the Devanu handler. But now he'll probably be part of the Devanu Outcasts when I get them done.

Birds, snakes and some lizards often have transition between a hatchling and adult stage. With feathers or skin showing both stages at once. I tried to do the same for my jenta handler. With cream white legs, from his hatchling stage, to a darker green on his back.
He also wears some grishak skins to blend in with the pack.

 


 

The kosok is painted as a sempa, so with less colourful wings compared to the kopa.

And some group shots!




Thanks for reading!

Tor Gaming's mystery box for Relics

Just a quick sidenote for those who are interested in getting some free mini's.

Tor Gaming is giving away a mystery box to one lucky winner.
I followed their Gamingfunder campaign last year and had also bought some Nuem in the past, as I really like the style and look of the mini's.
Relics also has a very nice rules-system, so I look forward to painting and playing this game in the future.

World of Twilight painting challenge and other stuff

Hey,

Here I am again, with just a little progress.
During the holidays I spend the little free time I had sculpting my Exiled king (Simba) for Briskars.
Quite a challenge, as it is the largest thing I have sculpted so far. He isn't finished yet, but will have to wait for a while, as I'm very busy painting World of Twilight miniatures during the spare time I have left. So here's the WIP.

In theory he is a mercenary (with Baxter's profile), and I'm going to add him to either my Maoks or Exiled, but the idea is to give him an oriental look like the other Maoks.
Baxter's club will be replaced by a tesubo and I want to add a straw hat.

Mike from World of Twilight has launched a painting challenge/competion to help backers get their kickstarter mini's painted and I decided to jump in.
My first idea was to get all my grishak done, but progress is slow so far. That's why I started with some expansion forces, so I have at least something to show with.
A devanu kopa from the basic set was still sitting on my desk when I had finally finished Arak Katain, and I felt a bit guilty I hadn't finished him first. While he can't compete in the challenge, I painted him up anyway, so my starter is finished at last.


 
For Arak Katain, I wanted a different skin-colour, as he comes from the Argoran wastes instead.
I also wanted his kosok to stand out and decided to give him some flashy wings.
The wings didn't work out as I wanted, but as I'm running out of time they will have to do.
Part of why I wanted some brightly coloured wings was because I see the kosok as a kopa.
It has always amazed me how different some male birds and amphibians are compared to their female counterparts, as if they are a whole different species.
