Assassin on a large scale

I wanted to paint some larger scale figure, but nothing too complicated. Assassin in 1/20 scale (90mm) from Atelier iT seemed just perfect. It is not overloaded with details, yet it is not too simple. It is just great to start adventure with larger scale miniatures.
Shading sketch was done with airbrush – skin first, then (after covering skin area with mask) jeans and top. This was an adventage of painting larger scale miniature with homogeneous surfaces. Painting of pre-shaded miniature was faster and easier.
The base was made from plastic card attached to a wooden plinth. It was painted by airbrush and then I appplied some pigments to simulate dirt.







I think I will paint some more big girls in future 🙂

Arena Rex Aquila

This is my first miniature from Arena Rex Legio XIII starter – Aquila.
Arena Rex miniatures are made of resin. On the basis of miniatures from starter set I can say that the quality of the cast is really good, there were no air bubbles. The only drawback is the resin itself – it is very heat sensitive, so using hairdryer to speed up drying time of paint was almost impossible. The mini bent after this operation and I had to straighten it’s thin parts (like leg or sword).
