This is a bunch of models from a recent commission. Various odds and sods from different manufacturers and very different eras.
First up, a pair of GW harpies that I showed a quick pic of the other week.
Next, a few Otherworld Miniatures
adventurers. I've lost track of how many times I've painted some of
these models now. These are slightly quicker paint jobs than the other
ones in my gallery.
Then we've got a priest type warrior from
Ratnik/LAF Miniatures. Not the best of sculpts to be honest. I quite
like the looks of a lot of the LAF models but this one has its faults.
The sculpted detail on the cloak is awful. If you're going to sculpt
that kind of detail then it really needs to be clean and sharp. Here
it's rather wobbly and that just doesn't paint up well. The casting was a
bit rough in places too.
Finally a real oldie. Orcus, Prince of
Undead by Heritage Miniatures dating back to around 1980 apparently. It
stands around 75mm from hoof to wing tip and is one hell of a lump of
metal. I enjoyed painting this one even though it took longer than I
expected. Sometimes really old models need a bit more care and attention
when it comes to painting them.
