A duck's dynasty

This week I finally finished my Billmen and tackled the Grobbit Executioner!



My GFs sister was at home this weekend and she lend us a camera for our soon to come trip to Japan, so I gave her a run on the new miniatures. It's one of those cameras with a small display so you get a bit afraid about the quality when shooting, but the final pics turned out cleaner than those from the cellphone.

The Grobbit
Grobbit Executioner was surprisingly fun to paint. Despite not really liking the miniature much, his rules make him a fearful F.O.E. (f**king overpowered enemy) on the battlefield, so I went for a thick cover of blood so heroes learn to respect the rabbit.

Billmen!
I really like the Billmen miniatures so it was hard to be satisfied at the result. I might still come back to tune something... I went for royal green and white as heraldic colors for the King so unlike dragons I painted them all equal to maintain fluff consistency.

Bow before the king!

Yay! I finished my last heroes from Forgotten King!
Well, at least the basic ones from the game cover. 

Group photo!!

Yeah, I know the Thundervale Huntress is missing on the photo but her size messed the picture composition too much.



Since I first saw the miniature I was sure I was going to paint her as a tribute to Warcraft III night elf dryads.


The troll shaman is also a Warcraft III influence.

 

And least but not last, the lovely Alchemist sporting all sorts of sodapop themed potions for extra sparkleburst!


And obviously a great party of heroes needs a great boss to fight too!

There goes, The forgotten King. I tried to keep the colors to "dirty" tones of brown and green to maintain the feeling of belonging to the forest. The shine from the scepter and the red eyes bring the main focus to the miniature. It's a pity the lightning in the photo does not favour it much.
