Rendiel – from Descent Journeys in the Dark

Ok, it’s time to finish up this Shadow of Nerekhall box! Rendiel, you are up next!

Rendiel is an elf and it looks like he is a musician – very nice character, strong pose and beautiful colours.

I decided to work on Rendiel mostly by using Contrast Paints, but of course it could be done with any paint you like. Mine was just an experiment: I mostly use Contract Paints on “boring” miniatures with long monochromatic dresses and this kind of stuff (like Father Mateo – forgive me Father!). This miniature is instead full of colours so it would be a challenge, especially if you think on how this kind of paint is applied.

Anyway, I really had fun with him: I primed the miniature in plain white and I started with the skin. Then, I moved to the rest of the body and the clothes.

There are some details I was very happy to highlight and still I did some with Contrast Paint too.

Like all the heroes from this board game, I rebased it onto the usual super-nice bases from Micro Art Studio.

Have a look at the gallery:
