Wizkids Griffon - WZK72574




I'm becoming the poster child for these wonderful miniatures from Wizkids - this one is from the Nolzur's Marvelous line.  The Griffon has a great pose, wonderful detail, and just look really good all painted up.  More official Dungeons and Dragons licensed creatures from the Monster Manual to your tabletop - just great fun.  Again, my only complaint is the lack of attributing the sculpt to the sculptor.

Painting instructions for Gargoyles (used my Vallejo Game Color)...

Step 1: No need to primer - already done
Step 2: Use Charred Brown on wings and front of creature
Step 3: Use Plague Brown on lion hindquarters
Step 4: Use Orange Fire on talons
Step 5: Use Black on claws and base
Step 6: Use Ghost Grey on head
Step 7: Drybrush Beastly Brown on wings and front of creature
Step 8: Use Night Blue as highlight on claws
Step 9: Use Vomit Brown as highlight on lion hindquarters
Step 10: Water down Sombre Grey as a wash on head
Step 11: Drybrush Wolf Grey on head
Step 12: Drybrush highlights on head with Ghost Grey
Step 13: Drybrush Cold Grey on rocks
Step 14: Drybrush Stonewall Grey on rocks
Step 15: Drybrush Dead White on rocks

Reaper Miniatures Skara, Female Skoli - 77488



I needed a quick model to resemble the moon elf major npc of the Princes of the Apocalypse - Aerisi Kalinoth and this Reaper Bones model is as close to description/pictures in the book.  She carries a magic spear Windvane.  The only part missing is a set of wings.  If I dig around I might have an extra set and I'll tack those on later if I do.

Painting instructions for Stone Lurker (used my Reaper paints except base and metal which were Vallejo)...

Step 1: I'm using Stynylrez primer on the bones models - just slop it on and cover everything - it works great!
Step 2: Use Clouded Sea on skin
Step 3: Use mix of Clouded Sea and Creamy Ivory for highlights on skin
Step 4: Use Pure Black on hair and potion bottle
Step 5: Use Midnight Blue as highlights on hair and armor
Step 6: Use Midnight Blue on all armor
Step 7: Use Twilight Blue as highlights on armor
Step 8: Use Show Shadow on the long skirt
Step 9: Use Chainmail Silver mixed with watered down Midnight Blue on sword and spear
Step 10: Use Chainmail Silver for sword and spear highlights
Step 11: Use Black on base and rock
Step 12: Drybrush Cold Grey on rock
Step 13: Drybrush Stonewall Grey on rock
Step 14: Drybrush Dead White on rock

Kickstarter paint total: 126 + 1 Skoli = 127
