First off, I’m really excited about these two projects. In particular, I’m really excited about the planetar. I think he, in particular, is going to turn out particularly well. Not to say I’m not going to put forth my best effort on the goliath, but the planetar is looking good to me.
First off, the goliath barbarian.
I decided to go with, go figure, Leather Brown for the leather bits. As you can see, I have the pauldrons, the kilt, and the bracers started.
I decided to go with oak Brown for the handle of the greataxe.
I’m going to let that guy dry for a little while and come back to him later. The weather has been particularly humid, and the paint is going to stay tacky until it gets a chance to air dry.
Now on to the planetar.
This guy was a little bit trickier. As you can tell from the picture on the back of the box, his skin is blue with a hint of green. In order to get that perfect coloring, I went ahead and combined Ice Storm with Snake Scales at a rate of 4:1 (Ice Storm being heavier). I think I found a nice balance, for me at least, that gets me what I want. Taking a look in the Dungeon Master’s Guide, the planetar has a slightly more greenish hue. I decided to go that route.
Again, the humidity is killing me, so I can only paint one side of the wings. I was actually pretty grateful that the wings do not come pre-attached to the miniature, allowing me to paint them separately and without problem. Of course, they will be attached upon completion of painting of the miniature.
What do you think, Dear Readers? Are you excited about these projects as much as I am? Let me know in the comment section below.
Until next time, Dear Readers…
