Astorath The Grim

May 25, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I have recently participated to a painting competition from a local game store, actually the only one here in Shanghai...

So I have picked up a mini I liked, I took this Astorath for his dynamic pose, despite the finecast quality which was so so, as usual, I have achieved to paint this guy on time, by spending a fair amount of time on him.

The armor is quite easy to paint due to this fins design, then I have done some gold NMM on the surrounding parts. I have then painted the rest in cold blue steel NMM, the wings structure and the elbow pad. For the wings I have opted for a slightly deeper blue and tried to make them glow. I  wanted to add a freehand, but no flat area to put it, so I have added one blood drops on each wings.

For the base I have used cork as main material covered by PVA glue + sand, some bits from other mini, and barbed wires from Secret Miniature Weapons. The base can be removed, and Astaroth can be playable character.

Finally, I won the painting competition with my Astorath.
