Quickie Horde

Well, it was supposed to be a quickie. I wanted to get one more batch of miniatures painted during my "break" from the comics project, and i went to pick out miniatures where i could just do a standard base coat> wash> quick detailing. And i picked out three of them (the red-headed fighter, the thief, and the zombie). But then i decided i'd take all these unusual translucent miniatures. My original thought was i'd just paint some eyes and highlights and otherwise leave them alone. I mean, they're practically already painted, right? And that's what i did for the red ones. But as i started looking at the green ones, i realized there's a lot of detail in those minis that isn't really visible if you leave them unpainted. For example, i had no idea that the one miniature on the left was three naked ladies hugging each other until i really squinted at it (quite what use that will be to me in a game is unclear) or that the one in the back was a mass of skeletons in an unearthly flame. So i wound up using more paint on them than anticipated. And painting these guys is actually pretty nerve wracking and pretty much push me to the limits of my meager abilities, since if you mess up you can't just paint over it (without obscuring the parts you are leaving translucent. So i didn't take as many risks and there were definitely a few times where i had to scrape off paint with a knife. But i'm still pretty happy with how they came out.
