Received an order today of discounted miniatures by post. The cats helped me open the box and Sabine was particularly interested in the contents. Since I was home from work early and it was a warm, sunny day out I went ahead and primed some figures and got started block painting.
The Aurloks (above) are associated with the element of Earth, so I’m starting with brown and tan colors. But I want to have some fun with the feathers and may use some red & purple (it’s a fantasy setting, so why not birds with red & purple feathers). The other box of figures are catlike humanoids associated with the element of Water (the game is called ALKEMY, after all, so each of the 4 factions represent one of the four classical alchemical elements), so I want to feature just a bit of blue although I plan to have fun painting them along the lines of cats like leopards, panthers, and tigers with lots of orange and yellow….
