The Cragheart

The Cragheart – from Gloomhaven

The Cragheart is one of the main characters of this awesome board game. To be honest my first thought was: “Eh, this one is going to be easy”, and it’s almost true.

Almost because yes the miniature is mostly grey, but you know this could also be an epic failure because the miniature could look flat very easily.

I didn’t really “paint” the Cragheart: I decided to prime the figure in grey using Mechanicus Standard Grey from Citadel (spry). There is no point in painting a figure you want grey when you have that primer! It saved lot of time.

Now, the overall look was flat (as expected). Then, I started painting the greenish/blueish belt and right after the golden details. I used Retributor Armour as base colour.

When dry, I applied Nuln Oil all over the miniature but an equal mix of Agrax Earthshade + Casandora Yellow for the armour.

I highlighted the Cragheart using a couple of shades of grey and I finished with a very light dry-brush with the lightest tone (I made by adding some Ivory to the original grey tones).
