You may remember the
Elda Space Elf from a few weeks ago. I said I wasn't quite happy with the colours and that I may have to repaint the mini. Well, I finally did so. I opted for the Biel Tan scheme, so green instead of red...
|...and all the spirit stones painted|
|Still suspiciously Christmas-like, yet an improvement, I think|
Right after finishing this mini (again) I found this other one wandering through the lead mountain.
|You didn't see this coming, uh?|
The Fomorian Bounty Hunter by Knightmare Miniatures is something I purchased as part of the Space Raiders kickstarter some time ago. About time to spill some paint on this beauty (What? You were assuming the Beauty was the other one?)
|A Space Fimir. Deal with it|
|Barsoom? No, never heard of that place|
It's quite a straightforward paintjob, as I think the mini was asking for this kind of palette. Didn't want to overdo it or oversaturate colours, so everything here is a conscious decision (well, apart from quality, you know).
The sculpt itself is a work over the original fantasy Fomorian by Diego Serrate too (which I recall getting on another kickstarter, but now I'm unable to locate it on Knightmare's web)
|Maybe not that much, but I'd like to think there's an evolution as a painter here|
So having painted these two on a row, I suddenly begun to see a connection. Two rogue space adventurers, outcast warriors taken apart from their respective worlds and now wandering together through the galaxy on a quest that will take them through endless adventures. An odd couple shoulder to shoulder in an unexpected alliance against evil, wherever they find it.
|Beauty and the Beast (I insist, the Beauty is the Fimir)|
Will they earn forgiveness? Will they return as heroes to their homes? Or will they keep on travelling through the edge of the Galaxy beyond the limits of known space?
|Don't miss next week's episode!|
I'm happy with the result, and how such different minis can team up this way. I honestly have no idea of what will I paint next, but I'll tell you as soon as I discover it myself! :D
