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.

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.
