GiraffeX's Darklands Minis

Postby GiraffeX » Wed Feb 25, 2015 11:10 pm

Just wanted to say thank you to Mierce for opening up the forums so I could register and show you my painted minis, I like to share :D

Don't expect amazing paint jobs although I do try my best.

My first mini that I finished last weekend is a lovely little lass Annik of Carn Wrach.

I do jump between projects a lot, when I'm fully onto my Darklands minis the updates will be more frequent.

This isn't the best pic as the weather isn't great in the UK at the moment. I've been wanting to paint her for ages but my inability to paint skin tones has held me back until now, I think I'm finally getting the hang of it though :lol:

Now the forum is back up I can share all my other Draklands minis I've been painting, it's not that many to be honest as I've only really just started them.

So here we go.

Annik had a make over after my initial try as I wasn't happy with here skin tone.

Image

Then I painted a random mini Baagath, Gabrax Gultain

Image

Then things got a bit more organised with the Brythoniaid.

First we have Forwyn Carys, Uchelwr of Gwynedd

Image

The Loyal Guard

Image

Then the mighty Parawn (facing off against Annik)

Image

Then its back to the Ysians with Akkaz, Hound-Aberrant

Image

A unit of Axe Drunes

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

A unit shot

Image

And finally bringing us up to date Carrowek of Carn Dhu

Image

Image

I hope you like them, next up is my Manticore which I'm very nervous about painting.

Some more for the Ysians today this time Ungefelic, Mantichora one of my favorite minis. I was really worried about painting him, I've had him in a box for a long time but plucked up the courage to put paint to resin and this is the result.

I can understand your nervousness, but the result is excellent! Love the mane colour, and the face especially.

I really like the contrast on that manticore between the dark scorpion/unnatural parts and the lions body. Well done there sir!

Thanks guys really appreciate the comments.

Not sure whats up next I have the rest of Baagath's herd to do and my Gorgórar unit, but they are even more intimidating than the Manticore was!

I've washed a load more stuff ready for assemble as well, don't think I'll be running out any time soon but I do have some none Darklands projects that need working on as well.

Do not be intimidated by the Gorgorar! I've not done them but done a bunch of the Gorgonar and they take paint so well it's a pleasure to work on them. Basecoat, drybrush then wash and they start to look fantastic and that's next to no work to do!

Like what you've been posting up so far all the paintjobs are looking solid.

Cheers Dave I will give them a go soon.

----------------------------

The new Kickstarter has got me back into painting Darklands minis again.

Today I painted Naraa, Tain of Baalor.

First time doing eyes but I wanted to give her the frozen look so pushed myself out of my comfort zone...

Thanks glad the eyes look ok. I really look forwards to painting Darlkands minis, I feel they really push me to become a better painter.

I've been painting some Gabrax this weekend, quite fun models especially when you get away from the normal skin tones.

I've got the banner bearer left and the two alternatives although one of them needs a new axe.

Chuwaa, Gabrax hornblower

Ungaa, Gabrax warrior

Rapraag, Gabrax warrior

It looks like crushed glass to me.
Whatever it is, the basing and the models look great

I've not been painting much recently but managed to bash out some Jute skeletons last weekend, I think they came out quite well. I'm currently assembling the rest of them at the moment.
