I think this is a Mierce miniature, but hopefully a friend of mine can clarify for me to make sure. Needs some flash trimming and a little prayer to get the top of his pole glued together.
That was all that was in the bag and on the sprue. Not sure why he has that little hole on the back of his right leg area. I filled it with greenstuff, thinking it could be an error with the plastic.
Yay for the superglue and baking soda combo. I still might greenstuff a little ring around it.
Primed! in gray so you can see the difference between the....gray plastic. More excitement on the way :)
skin based with a bronze tone
shaded with flesh shade
Some metallics, and the cloth is painted with arctic white. Mierce has a lot of minis to sort through. This guy is called Unmasked Velchior, Magus Infernum on Foot (thats a mouthful.) Was a little worried I may have been wrong to keep the axe handle curved, but found their pic on the website and the assembled model has the same curve to the handle.
He has a lot of doo dads on him, going to be tough to figure out what some of the stuff is. I love his face though, pity there may be a masked version of him out there somewhere.
Arctic white not doing it for me, the reds are so much more devilish.
got my browns in and some lining.
Pointy Winged Gold Skull Staff...check.
Not for lack of painting, but he is taking a while. I've been avoiding the do dads on his chest area. Hair highlights, axe and I believe that is it. Then it is on to basing.
He is totally out of his element, but still way cooler than I thought he was going to be. Other than a little trouble with the bent sheath, everything fit together nicely. I'll still have to do some puttying, but no giant gaps (no pun intended) or things that would not line up. I was very impressed because there are always a lot of complaints about this D&D collectors series line of minis and I can think of a couple that gave me a really hard time a while back too (looking at you Spider Queen Lloth), but this one was fairly easy.
Bent Sheath was fixed by heating up a cup of water in the microwave, dipping it into the water for a second, straightening out and finally dipping into a cup ice cold water. This method seems to work nicely, you just have to be careful with how long you dip the plastic into the hot water because you can melt away the details. I learned that the hard way with some melted Legend of Drizzt board game minis when I first started painting.
Bout as straight as I'm going to get it. I'll be slowly working on this big guy while I take care of some smaller stuff.
All the skin has been based, used up a lot of my white and some blue.
All these bases are belong to us.
and some highlighting
and a jump to the finish!
