Back to World of Twilight

 Wow, a whole month since last time. You know, rough weeks at work and everything, little spare time, the usual excuses. But I hope you clicked looking for painted minis, not boring real life, so I can give you a little of that too.

It's been a looong time since I last painted anything related to World of Twilight, so it was like breathing fresh air again after so long. These are part of the latest Kickstarter, and my pal asked me if I could resume the project where we had left it. I have consciously avoided to have a look at the web, as I wanted to keep my mind free of incluences and simply let inspiration flow as it came.

We always wanted this Anyaral experience to be visually as vivid as I could achieve, with the most gaudy colours possible. It's not always easy, as you instinctively tend to look for more earthy tones, but this time the palette came out quite naturally. I'll let you judge the results:

A couple of mercenaries, Chey and Dravu

Zhontain al Griba and a tiny urchin

Rear view of all of them. Just because!

However, I guess the next guys are the show stealers. They are simply catalogued as 'Juice Bar', and I find the concept delightful. They can be used as mere beasts of burden, of course, but the sign on their back and the tiny details make them look special.

They are essentially the same sculpt, with minor differences on both head and tail as well as having a different sign on the back.

I don't know why, but they were asking for warm colours to me, so I painted one yellow...

...and the other one orange

I hesitated wether or not to paint the crest with different colours, but in the end I thought the mini is already quite busy visually speaking, so I feared it was just a little too much. Sometimes less is more.

Yeah, yeah, I need a backdrop, I know

I still have a few more minis to paint, but I will take care of them in a few weeks. For the moment I have some other pressing issues I have to attend. You will see soon!

    1. Thanks! The gaudy explosion is what makes them so distinctive, I guess. Have a look at their web, there are quite fun concepts and lovely minis!

    1. Thanks! Oh, you need to! I think Twilight is the kind of project that suits you, it has a very different and inspiring background and minis; someone with your creative talent can do terrific things with this!

  5. Very bright, better than I can ever do.
    I'm so set in painting worn and earthy that colorful and bright is very difficult to execute.

    1. Thanks! Well, that is precisely what happened to me, I had to switch my mind and restart everything. Of course I won't say these are a magnificent paintjob, but I hope they still work in such a distinctive manner.

  6. The bright colours really work! I keep thinking that I should get some Twilight stuff - and this reminds me that I need to repaint my lizardmen. They look very good!

    1. Thank you! The Twilight ranges are really nice, very different from the usual fantasy stuff. I tried the James Cameron's Avatar set of mind, everything plenty of powerful colours, and I think it works, at least for me!

    1. Haha, thank you! These are part of a game. World of Twilight is a fantasy setup with these anthropomorphic creatures. It is visually quite different from the usual fantasy stuff and, though I cannot speak of the game itself as I haven't played it, the whole background and designs are really powerful and inspiring. Here you have the web if you fancy having a look:

  8. Me gustan mucho las minis, especialmente porque se apartan de la estética de fantasía habitual. En cuanto al pintado, le van geniales esas combinaciones de colores que optan por colores llamativos.

    Me encanta especialmente la mini de la bestia de carga y cómo te ha quedado

  9. Those are lovely. The vivid colours are something else. Much different from the usual grim dark fare.

    1. Thank you! Colours are almost everything on these. Though an earthy palette is tempting and looks properly suitable, my pal and I wanted to try something different, and I think this approach is a fun thing to do!

  10. Certainly these minis portray a varied color scheme, and I'm pretty sure they made the painting sessions more fun than usual. Nice work as usual Suber :)

    1. Thanks! They are fun indeed. What's not to love about tiny humanoid lizards in flashy fashion? :D
