    Miniatures pt41 – Assorted Beasts 

    With the pill bases and some larger round bases, I proceeded with the rest of my Demonworld pile. A chaotic polar bear, two bears, a mountain lion and a couple of giant spiders.

    For the polar bear I went with a snow textured base using cotton and pva.

    The mountain lion came out a bit muddled, I’m not very happy with my final result there, but it’s okay for the table.

    Miniatures pt40 – Wolves 

    My warbases order arrived so I could work on my larger miniatures. Here are 2 Dire Wolves and 5 Wolves from the wolf pack of the Demonworld line of Ral Partha Europe.

    I varied the darkness of the fur coat by diluting my final wash in different concentrations.

    Miniatures pt33 – Wood Elves 

    Here’s my Wood Elf Warband from the Blighthaven line of the Demonworld range of Ral Partha Europe.

    With these, I have finished my non-mounted/mounts/beasts miniatures from Ral Partha. With BREXIT changing the way goods enter into EU, I expect to have some serious increase to cost when ordering from UK-the holy land of miniature manufacturers. Until July I will be able to keep the cost low when ordering small packages, but after that time, unless a new trade deal occurs, my choices will be very limited.

    I’ve ordered some pill bases for my mounts so, until that arrives, I’ll either switch to historics/ancients or go sci-fi.

    I’m also considering making a tutorial of my painting technique, but I need to decide on the medium. Video or Pictures with text. Maybe a mix of both.

    Now to the wood elves. I decided to go with an old school color scheme (like most of my painting style – I’m back to the 90s) using Green and Yellow uniforms and Red bows and spears.

    I had processed my dried coffee grinds with green paint in the past in an effort to make home made flock. Doesn’t work well as flock, but the paint caused some coffee clumps, which look like small rocks. I’ve used this to texture the inner part of my bases, and I really like the variety.

    The wood elves were painted with transparent or semi opaque paints and inks, and this really helps show the sketch prime underneath. It’s one of the best examples to show my technique in 15mm so far.

    Miniatures pt31 – Sir Roderick’s Retinue 

    This is Sir Roderick’s Retinue from the Blighthaven line of Demonworld range from Ral Partha Europe.

    It’s only the retinue, without Sir Roderick, who is mounted. I don’t have appropriate basing for mounts and beasts, so he’s on hold until I get some bases.

    For the red uniforms, I did a pink undercoat, followed by an orange ink overcoat. White shields with red X freehand.

    Miniatures pt30 – Assorted 2 

    Here are a few single miniatures from the Demonworld line of Ral Partha Europe. A temple guardian and a few monsters. A couple werewolves, a vampire coven and a harpy.

    In this batch job, I am still trying a few combinations of acrylic inks. Using transparent inks over a different color basecoat to achieve a combined color in the end. For the deep red inside of the vampire cloaks, I did a pink undercoat followed by red ink.

    I also switched to a combined base texturing technique. I used CA glue and baking soda on the exterior ring of the base, and PVA glue and coffee grinds on the interior ring of the base. This gives a gradual change from a finer grain to a coarser one, stop the PVA from flowing outside the base and protects the miniature feet from climbing PVA glue. I’m going to keep this.

    Miniatures pt29 – Big Ones 

    With this post, I’ve reached my photos backlog with up to date paintings. This means that I will be only able to post miniatures posts as I paint them, and it will take longer.

    Here are 4 big ones in 15mm. An Ogre, a Troll, and two Minotaurs. These are from the Ral Partha Europe Demonworld range.

    Painting the squares on the Ogre pants was hard, but I really enjoyed the end result and it goes well with the stripes.

    For the troll, I did something I hadn’t done before. Instead of painting it green directly, I gave it a light blue basecoat, followed by a yellow ink once dry. My yellow ink is transparent and weak in pigment, so I had this beautiful green as a result, with yellowed parts.

    I tried to do something similar with the Minotaurs, using red ink over yellow ochre, hence the evil demonic look.

    Miniatures pt20 – Dark Elf Defilers 

    With these 10 Dark Elf Defilers from the Blighthaven line of Demonworld range from Ral Partha, I reached 200 painted miniatures for 2020 (haven’t posted my painted Sci-Fi miniatures).

    For the color scheme I went with purple, pink and mauve. Feels like a retro game CGA color palette.

    I rushed through the basing and did CA glue and baking soda before priming, but I didn’t pay attention and stuffed the mini in the baking soda. Unfortunately, this had the unwanted effect of baking soda climbing up in the feet of some miniatures.

    Miniatures pt19 – Orc Marauders 

    Here’s the Orc Marauders warband from the Blighthaven line of the Demonworld range of Ral Partha.

    These orcs are heavily armed and armored, but have no missile weapons, and that’s why, even though I had them already, I went ahead and got me the single orcs I posted before.

    I was aiming for a white green flesh color, but it came out just lighter viridian. Nevertheless I went ahead with it.

    For the bases, I did CA glue and baking soda on wooden bases, as I’m running low on coins.

    I gave the shield a teeth pattern, white bottom and red top, and two black dots for eyes.

    Miniatures pt17 – Beastmen 

    Here is the Beastmen warband from Blighthaven line of Demonworld range of Ral Partha.

    I’m running low on coins, so I based them on 20mm wooden disks instead. Quite cheap, but they are a couple mm taller than my coin based minis. Not much of an issue at table distance though.

    I went with earth tones and used acrylic ink to create the different fur highlights. I also used different fur color choices for each beastman
