Miniature Showcase


This was the miniature we bought to represent a newly risen Sseth in our campaign. Since he never got Kariss’s DNA, because she was one part of the ritual to bring him back, he was weakened and never truly whole in this fight. That said it was still a close call and we learned that even a weak and incomplete god could kick our butts! This mini came in a few pieces. The head and wings are separate pieces and the body is in two pieces.

After gluing all the pieces together, I applied a grey primer and began painting the top of the body in a very dark metallic green. I mixed my green orc skin color with a bit of black to make it much darker and silver to add some shine. It took about three layers to get the saturation I was looking for.

The belly was painted in a light lime green. I love the feathered serpent look that we went with for that encounter! I wanted a lighter and brighter color for the under belly. It took a long time to paint all those loops but it was so worth it.

I painted the feathers in a multitude of mostly cool colors and some pink. I wanted to give the god a beautiful, beguiling look that hid the truth of its threat to the party. The god has a crown of shining gold and a huge maw that is wide open to swallow the characters.

The final part was the base of the miniature. I painted the bark of the unfortunate tree and the stone it coiled itself around. The tail feathers were painted in the same colors as the wings. I also added accents of a darker bronze to the details in the golden headpiece.
