On the Painting Bench

As part of the the Song of Heroes and Blades campaign, I needed to get some generic minis painted that could be used as bad guys.  Looking about, Mike and I decided that an order to Ralpatha was a sound idea.

The models are from the Blighthaven range, which are smaller packs of selected miniatures in the Demonworld Range.  £5 for 12 models is very nice, but I have no idea where the Bone Giant thing comes from :/

Painting wise, I kept it easy as the models are based on 1p.  Under coated black, then dry brushed brown, and then a final coat of white.  I made the weapons and armour to where you could see they were rusty. It was a simple mix of Vallejo Black Red and then a little bit of German Orange to finish it off.


 

 

 

After a nice day sat painting they were all done.  As a group they look very nice, and I can get a decent amount on the board even at 150pts. Over time I will expand them into a nice looking command unit by adding in some mounted troops.
