Just a few things I quickly fixed before packing this sucker up. A couple jerkins painted brown from grey. Steel reinforcement on the helms as well as painting the cloak buckles. And the Myth Archer dirtied up her armour bits.

These last few models have now sounded the end of this commission. Feels good! A couple duplicates in this batch of Myth hero models (from a previous commission), so I changed up their colour scheme in some way.

The warrior priest lady, I flipped the blue and orange. The Assassin, I changed the dark green areas to a dark red. The engineer, I painted the armour beige instead of yellow.

I hear Eye of the Tiger playing somewhere…

Nearing the end of this commission, here come the Myth heroes (and anti-heroes). A couple of loyal dogs joined in as well. A couple of the heroes are duplicates from a previous commission I did a while back, so I will be switching up the colour scheme for them. But for the new ones, I will be following the concept art scheme.

Only 5 models to go and the commission is done!

With the Shield Maiden for the LotR force done, the first half of this commission is complete! I have also completed a handful of Myth figures for the transition into the second part. 2 Golem monsters, 2 Saw arm treekin robots, and an Eyeball head guy.

Obligatory group pictures. Little touchups here and there, but otherwise b-e-a-u-tiful. I gave some green to the Treeman to break up some of that brown. The female bard has been given red hair and some shading to the bracers and blouse. Turns out I missed bits of the rats and bugs, with their peg base inserts, the slot on the bases were left unpainted. The primer showing a bright streak of white. I painted those little mishaps, and it is now corrected.

And these 2 models are the last of the Myth commission. The dragon I put on little fiery bits like the cracks in the scales and the tip of its tail. The other monster reminded of a Titan from Attack on Titan. Too bad it wasn’t positioned in a way that it moved like those Titans, that would be hilarious. I make the rock-growths on this monster gem-like; rubies, sapphires, amethysts, and emeralds. Not the most dangerous minerals, but he sure could pay his bills.

Just 2 models left in this commission. I will be breaking out the airbrush just for them.

Today, I have an Orc boss and all the heroes complete. The heroes were all very interesting to paint, all unique. My favourite is the Bagpipe Bard. He wears the kilt so well, and I did a little pattern for it as well. I just had to make the duelist/pirate a bit fabulous with the majestic clothes. The facial hair and hat called to me, inspired me.

Myth update #6 – Bosses, and Heroes, and Doge December 5, 2014

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.
