Finished another SDE Miniboss – Captain R. He reminds me a lot of LeChuck from the Monkey Island series, so I painted him up to look like LeChuck.
My quest to finish up all SDE Bosses and Minibosses is not done yet. Shortly before I finished the Captain the new Miniboss Kaelly finally arrived at my local game store. She’ll be up next.
My quest to “finish all current SDE Bosses and Minibosses” is nearing its end. Today I present the Death Spectre, a Miniboss from the Van Drakk expansion.
Only one Miniboss to go. Time for my Relic Knights SDE minis to arrive…
Elizabeth (Anna DeWitt) from Bioshock Infinite is one of my all time video game character favorites. I employed the services of the very talented Martin Baker to sculpt a chibi version of her. Painted her up in her original colors.
Continuing with Caverns of Roxor, here is the boss himself: Roxor
I used the same flame style for Roxor which I already established with Rock Gut.
One of the main foci of the mini was, once again, the base. I used the whole base to sculpt a small lava pool, rimmed by rocks, from which he erupts.
Having finished all Bosses and Minibosses of the SDE base set, I’m continuing my quest to finish all Bosses and Minibosses in the Caverns of Roxor. First up is Rock Gut the Troll.
He was my first SDE mini which featured flames. As there are a lot more of them in the Caverns of Roxor set, I wanted to get the flames right and use them as a template for future ones. After multiple trys and repaints I settled on more comic-like and less realistic flames. I’m rather happy with the result and think they fit very well with my SDE painting style.
Tried something new with his base. I bought some rough gemstone shards and added three amethysts to the base. They look rather nice in the right light, but do look rather dull when not directly lit by a light source. Not sure yet, if I’ll use those again.
Poor Rex has been sitting on my desk half finished for month. Finally could not stand up to his accusing gaze anymore an finished him.
I was able to get my hands on a set of custom sculpted Castle Crasher minis by Velvet Mark. Their size and style matches the SDE minis perfectly, so I based them on my SDE bases.
One last update for 2013. Here is Von Drakk, the boss of the second SDE expansion, in his basic and his shapeshifted form “Nocturne”.
I’m happy I got my hands on the limited edition SDE hero Nyan Nyan, released at GenCon 2013. I painted her up in her original color scheme.
Finished my first SDE boss, Starfire. Everything about him was a lot of work, from the assembly, through the base to the paintjob. I’m rather satisfied with the result, though.
