Why I Chose Solomon Kane

Solomon Kane has always been one of my favorite fictional characters and I daresay I prefer him to Conan as he feels more relatable to me, both in environment and stature. So when Mythic Games ran a Kickstarter based upon one of my favorite heroes, I had no choice but to jump in with both feet.

Upon reception of Wave one, about two weeks ago, I felt this creeping feeling of dread, upon realising the physical beauty of the contained miniatures, a beauty which I felt very inadequate to do justice to with my meager painting skills. The virtues were especially intimidating, in part because the accompanying artbook portrayed a paint job far beyond my reach. Solomon Kane was shelved for the moment.

Yet, having reached this point in my hobby were too many games were competing for my attention, I decided to submit the list to my youngest son, a 24 year old wooky of a man, who never hesitates to share with me his honest opinion (something I am much thankful for, even though it sometimes bruises my psyche). Upon having the list enumerated, he picked, for some unknown reason, Solomon Kane as the game he would be most interested in next. The path of Kane was therefore mine to follow, beginning with the virtues…

I picked temperance first as it seems like a virtue I could get more of. The miniature was devoid of mold lines (that I cared about) and i decided to prime it black, along with the other three virtues.

I then airbrushed a layer of Imperial Blue (Vallejo) at 45 degree angle downward, preserving the shadows.I then airbrushed a layer of Imperial Blue (Vallejo) at 45 degree angle downward, preserving the shadows.

Followed several progressive zenital airbrush layers of Vallejo Magic Blue and Electric Blue and finally a top down, parsimonious touch of 50/50 Electric Blue and White followed by pure white.

Added highlight to liquid by using a lighter tone of blue and pure white, applied with the side of the brush on the raised area.

The base was detailed by painting the roots GW Dryad Bark, highlighted with GW Gorthor Brown just at the top of the raised surface. Leaves were painted GW Waaagh Flesh (medium green) and highlighted with a lighter shade of green (here GW Straken Green). The two vases were painted Vallejo Black Green and the decoration applied a thin layer of GW Runelord Brass. A wash of Huln Oil was applied and, upon it being dr,, a slight dry brush of GW Administratum Grey. I then came back with little touches of GW Runelord Brass to enhance details and overcome Nuln Oil flat aspect. Using a dark blue, I chose to paint lines under the eyes. I felt they mimicked and complemented the water pouring from the hands.The base was detailed by painting the roots GW Dryad Bark, highlighted with GW Gorthor Brown just at the top of the raised surface.

The challenge with Patience is her base as the tentacles are very distinct from the rest of the miniature and thus require a separate treatment. I chose to apply a GW Contrast Purple for the bottom of the tentacle and a GW COntrast Grey for the top.
