Mother's Day gift and basing

I've got some sort of muscle pull on my right side and it's made painting tricky. They're worse when I sit, even worse when I hunch, and I hunch a lot when I paint. But, I've still managed to do some project progression.

Mother's Day gift - Meridian Miniatures Hippogryph 

This was fun! One of those models that seems to paint itself. I began with airbrush work, applying zenithal highlights, starting with a warm dark brown, then a sand brown, finished off with a final application of sand mixed with white.



This created depth and a nice bit of tonal transition. Applying dark-lining, edge highlights and final details accentuated this initial airbrushing. Sometimes the simple approach gets the best sort of results!

The sculpt is very crisp and clean, so it was easy to pick out the details around the model. I've not done anything in the 'chibi' style before but I had a blast with this. I'll certainly be doing more models from Meridian's Tooth and Sword range.

Shadespire Bases

I've built bases for various models that I'll show as I finish up the minis that go on them. I also painted the bases from the Shadespire boxed game and I've gotta say, I really like them. I've practiced a simple marble effect on the Stormcast ones and by making the leaves sculpted onto them orange it's created a cool Autumnal mood. I'll replicate the green marble effect I've done here on the column and steps of Morathi's bases.
