My Relic Knights Kickstarter pledge including the SDE crossover minis arrived and the new SDE heroes from this set are on the top of my painting list now. Before I start with them I’m finishing up two SDE spawns, though.
The first of the two, the Fireflow Denizens, are done. They are the first complete spawn I finished for SDE.
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.
Following the heroes of Roxor I decided to paint up my first SDE miniboss. The Herald of Vulcanis was sold alongside Roxor as a separate mini. He reminds me a lot of the spartan warrior Kratos from God of War.
In addition to the Herald this update includes some updated pictures of older SDE minis. I’m in the process of taking pictures with my new camera and light setup to replace older pics. The SDE Sorceress and Rogue were updated so far.
To round up the heros from Caverns of Roxor I present the Star Guild Sapper. This litte guy is by far my favorite Roxor hero. Sodapop managed to create a cool tribute mini to Mario, a classic character I always thought of as rather lame.
And here is the next hero from SDE’s Caverns of Roxor: the Deeproot Scout painted up in classic Link colors.
After a painting pause of about half a year I’m happy to present the first painted hero from SDE’s Caverns of Roxor, Princess Ruby.
