War, what is it good for? Show your Ares!


Recommended Posts

Some Work-in-Progress shots as I wrap up painting the storied God of War in miniature form... I really like this sculpt, and I have been trying to up my game with these larger MB figures. Trying some new techniques here and there. I have trouble making a large smooth surface look good with a layer of ink wash. It often looks messy and splotchy. So, for Ares’ cape and, um, skirt(?), I painted them with a darker tone as a base layer and then I just layered and dry brushed the highlights, skipping the ink wash step all together... Very happy with him so far, maybe the best mini I’ve painted in the couple years I’ve been doing it.

@rhogg27184, can’t wait to see what you wind up doing with the MB minis. Your Conan work has been excellent, no doubt you’ll knock it out of the park with MB as well. I’m getting close to having the base game minis painted, so it will probably be ready around the time the 1.5 version arrives, and then we will finally be able to actually try playing this game!
