The Relic Knights Black Diamond are completely done (until I expand). Here are some group shots.

My Relic Knights are now complete. Iron Chef: Definitely not Solid Snake, and Magnus Leopold, my commander, are done. Group shots coming soon. Like the other models in my army, I gave them the custom base treatment and a good amount of painting time.

I decided to follow the box art for both the models. Iron Chef with the greys and Leopold with the shining armour. This was the first time in a while since I have done a non-metallic effect. I’d say it turned out pretty well.

I have completed more of my Black Diamond force. This batch includes three Suspect 7 and a Sophia Drake.

I tried to loosely follow colour schemes for the skins of Akali from League of Legends. But I think they look more like the ninja women from Mortal Kombat. The one in yellow has a 7 on her clothing, so now she has a soccer jersey haha. All the ninjas have water effects on their bases, making them garden themed.

Sophia Drake looking great. I made her armour more on the warmer side that is complemented by the bricks on her base.

Almost done, just Iron Chef and Leopold to go!

Last weekend was painting time for Relic Knights. Looking sexy. Did some OSL on the tank from the muzzle flash. I also have some water effects going on with the infantry. I wanted to go for more of a Starship Trooper vibe, but then they somewhat deviated from my vision XD. Finally, my little cat familiar (Static?) is Espeon flexing its power. I can’t wait until everything else is done 🙂

I think I will come back to the cat. I want the power markings to be brighter and more vibrant.

I was merrily strolling around PAX, when I came across the the Soda Pop Miniatures. I was aware of Relic Knights before, but physically seeing them on the table top really sold it for me. That, and they are all plastic. My buddies and I bought into an army each: starter boxes plus another few supplement models. I got Black Diamond, friends got Shattered Sword and Noh Empire. We spent a weekend building our sets.

Since these will always be small armies, I decided to take the bases up a notch. Bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures; custom made bases using balsa wood, urban rubble from Gale Force Nine, and miniature bricks from Secret Weapon. My Suspect 7 and Iron Chef will be given water effects to complete their bases.
