The beginning of the end. There are little more than a dozen models left in this Myth commission.

Today, I submit to you, 3 bosses, a minotaur, 2 heroes, and a dog (which is also a miniboss?)

The bases are from Secret Weapons Miniatures, which, I think, compliment the models very nicely. Even if the bases are quite a bit bigger than what were supplied. The bosses were interesting to paint. The rats each had funny little details to pick out. The brown rat has a little imp thing sitting on its head holding the reigns, and the rat shouldering the smaller rats has a little crown and the pumpkins on the base really added to the theme of “scary rat king”. The bug boss has little grubs spawning out of various orifices.

I added more colours to the minotaur than the concept art (which was all browns), much more interesting to look at. I followed the concept art scheme for the dog, a fun model to paint.

Finally, the heroes. The torch bearer had a nice variety of textures to explore. The treeman/Groot, I painted like a tree. Unfortunately not much colour variety. However, to add a bit of interest to the model, I put autumn leaves in various places on the model. Gives some more narrative to the model. I think I will go back and add some green to the appendages to make them vine-like. That would give a better colour variety.
