Hi all, I picked up Forgotten King about a year ago, and soon after backed Legends. I set out with the goal of having all my SDE painted by the time it came in; I painted little more than one spawner, and bought most of the existing models, so I am WAAYYYYY behind. I have recently started painting again, and thought I might as well share my efforts with the world (or one forum). Maybe this will make sure I don't take another year long break.
In the order that I painted them:
Half of the Rabid Squirrels
Princess Emerald, painted like Caitlyn from League of Legends
Bashful Boris, painted like a badger lord in the grip of bloodwrath
That's it for things painted last spring. I then went on a very long hiatus, consisting mostly of Dark Souls 3 and XCOM 2. I also reread A Game of Thrones, which inspired the next spawn point, done a couple weeks ago:
Grabby House, painted like wights. Note the black and brown clothes are for Night's Watch and Wildling wights. I should probably paint the Crown Guard as Night's Watch, and find some savage humans to be Wildlings...
I kind of feel like an idiot. I meant to make the witch's eyes and flame blue, to match the eyes of the wights, but I was looking at card art for guidance and completely forgot what I was doing
I finally decided to learn how to layer (after six years of painting 40k... that's a bit embarassing). It's actually easy, and I notice a huge improvement even with the first model. Thanks to Aella13's youtube channel for tips on layering, and especially eyes
The Forgotten King. First attempt at OSL, it's not terrible but I'm not especially happy with it either
Chests, painted like they're from Skyward Sword
Boo Booties, painted like the three different flavors of mimic. The bouncing booty was inspired by Nkelsch's awesome work, and was my first attempt at using greenstuff
That's all for now; current goal is to paint the remaining minis from the Forgotten King box, because that seems like a good milestone
