What did you use to resculpt them?

 

 

Hey thanks DaMaz, I use Magic Sculpt to do almost all of my conversions or touch ups on minis.  This material is my preference over Green Stuff.  For me at least, it's easier to use and has less of a learning curve...although it's still ridiculously challenging to sculpt anythign for me, definitely not my strong suit, but I still feel the need to modify minis from time to time, especially if the face is going to let the mini down once it's painted.

 

Awesome job (as always), darkstar! Alys and Avric look like they got their armour from the same outfitter. :lol:

 

Hey thank you JSM, indeed they must be getting thier kit from the same stall in Ahrynn! :P

 

You're work on Alys is really wonderfull (as always, and jaleaous as ever) but, as I thought, the minis is lacking of detail and is not so great, even with your work.

 Thank you rugal, I appreciate it :D

Yeah some of the minis are quite nice actually but some of them, yeah, even a nice paintjob can't save them.  I really like some of them like Corbin though, he's looks great and can't wait to paint that guy.  Some of the monsters are pretty bad too but some of them are amazing like the new Giants.  It's very 'hit and miss' and I'm definitely thinking about proxies for some of the minis that I don't like such as the Goblin Archers.  I have lots of ideas about proxies...

Augur Grisom is done and here he is:

I love this little mini.  He's just got so much expression and character in his expression.  Such steely resolve!  But by little mini I mean...these Descent minis are tiny and to top it all off he's a dwarf!  I can only imagine my feelings about this scale by the time I get down to Tomble or Ravaella, the gnomes/halfling types...I may go mad by then.  The upside being, that when I paint my 'normal' minis they seem like I'm painting on a mural...so I've got that going for me at least which is nice :P

Got to admit that Darkstars paint jobs are impressive but makes them even more impressive is the size of them compared to say Citadel/GW mini which are bigger (28 mm scale), am loving the 2 dwarfs as they are my favorite characters in the game I seen so far.

Thank you!  They are quite a bit smaller than what I usually paint that's for sure !  Looking forward to getting to paint the giants heh.

Hide your minis, hide your figures!  Haha thank you for that :)

Absolutely wonderful work again! You sir are amazing and an inspiration.

Maybe a dwarf ranger next? Or a human champion with a large sword?

As he stated earlier, it takes 8 to 10 hours to paint one so if he charged 15 dollars an hour, it would be 150 dollars or so, each.

You are incredible. I just read this forum today, and after that I arrived home, I picked up my figure and tried to compare the base gray with your painted minis. It is awesome... I hope I could paint half as good as you do. 

My favorite character is Dezra. I think that someone like you can paint her awesome. Her picture is great, and she has so unique mood. I hope you have enough time to your hobby, and we can delight in your works in the future!

Hey man amazing job! Inspired me to start painting my figures (Avric will be done tonight, I'll post in a separate thread)

 

Do you varnish at all? During a game the minis are handled quite a lot, is my concern..

 

Keep it up and keep posting! Please do :)
