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
Image

Princess Emerald, painted like Caitlyn from League of Legends
Image

Image

Bramble Knight
Image
Billmen
Image
Frog Knights
Image
Grobbit Executioner
Image
Group Shot
Image

Slimes
Image

Mr. Chompers
Image

Bashful Boris, painted like a badger lord in the grip of bloodwrath
Image

Image

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...
Swampies
Image
Prowlers
Image
Pudges
Image
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 :roll: oh well
Shamble Priest
Image
Grabby Houses
Image
Group Shot
Image

Gruesome George
Image

Image

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

Fae Alchemist

Kunoichi Candy

The Forgotten King. First attempt at OSL, it's not terrible but I'm not especially happy with it either
Image

Image

Chests, painted like they're from Skyward Sword
Image

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
Image
Sproing!
Image

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

Nicely done! Your work has this slight gritty feel to it which works especially well on those zombies! And it's a good first attempt at green stuff. The tongue looks natural out the side of that bouncing booty. With something like the spring, you can put an actual wire in and wrap it in greenstuff. I have learned from experience that putty doesn't support itself too well before it's dry and can sag as it sets, leaving a little bit of a squished look.

Getting through everything can take a very long time. I still have a few unpainted warbands that I got with the FK Kickstarter. My minis are on hiatus while I play Breath of the Wild. XD

These look awesome!! Your Konoichi Candy reminds me of Sakura Haruno from Naruto, was that on purpose?

The gritty feel comes from learning to paint via warhammer 40k; it would be hard to unlearn, but I think it looks good, if a little different, on SDE models. The wire is a good idea, maybe I'll make another, improved bouncing booty in the future

I've never watched Naruto, the reference is a complete accident; I went with a red kimono because it's similar to official colors, but I didn't want her hair and dress to be the same color. I picked white because I think I recall a Street Fighter (or maybe Mortal Kombat?) character wearing red with white trim and it looked pretty cool

Update! Woo! I painted the Questing Knight green because he used to be a Bramble Knight, and they seem to wear green a lot (certainly when I paint them, anyway)

And the three remaining Rabid Squirrels

Comments and critiques are welcome!

Update!

I'm not especially fond of the Old-Growth Hollow models, so I did them rather quickly. Glad to have most of them out of the way

Just the wisps and sprout remaining, then I can get on to the heroes, pets, and cursed knight

It's fun to watch your gritty WH40k background do battle with your clear appreciation for the SDE minis. The blood in this setting gives me an almost comical Monty Python feeling, like a dash of the real in the land of the fae. It's all so nicely crisp too, with interesting color choices. The grabby house are especially fantastic in these regards, but your whole FK set looks great on tile.

Hey I painted a thing again! Yay!

Wisps
Image

Sprout and King Sprout
Image

Royal Warden
Image

Image

Thundervale Huntress, painted like Lunara from World of Warcraft / Heroes of the Storm
Image

Image

Kinoshrooms
Image

Truffle Pigs
Image

Okoshroom
Image

Fungal Growth
Image

The little shrooms on the spawner are dark like Poison Mushrooms from Smash Bros, the Kinoshrooms are Super Mushrooms and the Okoshroom is a Mega Mushroom
Image

Silver Chevalier, painted like Ruler from Fate
Image

Image

Image

I've decided to put pets on hold until I get Pet Parade, and I still haven't finished modeling the Cursed Knight, so I guess that means I'm done with the FK box for now. Working on Glimmerwing at the moment. Feels good to be back!

Quite a nice batch of painted minis :)

OSL on FK looks decent. The problem I ran into is that he is pointing his glowing hand away from himself, meaning he doesn't really cast any light on himself.
I cheated and made some light shine on his arm and beard, even though it really shouldn't. But it looks better - more glow-y.
You can also paint "those soft pillows on his palms - what are those called?" almost white to make it seem like his hand is really glowing.

I took a look at your Forgotten King, Goblin-King. Very nice! I might go back and add to mine, or I could start fresh because FK came in my black friday chibi lootbox. But that can wait.

For now, I have 2 of my favorite models.

Glimmerwing. I copied Velvet Mark, and just did green washes over a metallic basecoat. I added GW's glazes to this for the wings, and highlighted with silver. Easy, and looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Image

Image

Dragon Blade. His lore says he's a Lunar Elf, and the kickstarter has some great looking Lunar Elves, so I went with a similar color scheme. His official green just doesn't please me
Image

Image

Image

Up next: either the Claw Shrine and Ser Snapjaw, or the Air Shrine from NAS. Not sure yet
