The Temple of Painted Bizaza Masters

I painted these using the master castings so the details are much more crisp than previous efforts.  They  are very straight forward to paint as they have very open stances.  I find painting the 2 handed weapons separately and attaching them later is a good idea.

I tend to use lots of shading and glazes on them.

I like the copper and leather basic equipment colours on these guys, they benefit with bright contrasting colours as spot colours.  I have used a jade green colour on the stones and jewellery tends to be gold.

The eyes are basically like cats eyes with a vertical black oblong.  Lots of purple and red washes work well around the yellow eyes to give them some warmth.

 

 

I knocked this thing together last week.  Basically layers of polystyrene and some foam card for the rails.  I created a stone face tile and made a siligum mould to pour plastic resin castings.img_2705

Bizaza Guard Regiment

28mm, Bizaza, Frog People

Recently I decided to use some of my spare home cast Bizaza to make up a unit of 12 of them for use for Dragon Rampant, the system in vogue at the moment with our gaming group.  The casting on them is dodgy in places but nothing that the brush can’t conceal.

As I only had 2 moulds made of the 6 minis in the set, I created a couple of conversions using some of my other prototype weapon builds. They have been painted in a diverse set of colours with Air Caste Thinner used on the skin to give it a real gloss.  The gloss effect makes it tricky to get a good photo but I like the look on the table which is the priority with a personal gaming army like this.

In other news I recently got my hands on some resin masters for the Bizaza set.  These have been skillfully made by Zealot Miniatures.  They are very nice castings with the most delicate of details coming out crisp.  I am looking forward to getting some time to paint them up to include them in army.

We launched our Kickstarter today for the Bizaza, here is the link:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1033967745/bizaza-guard-ancient-frog-people-from-the-future-i

 

There are 6 models in total for the Kickstarter, but I hope to increase this with stretch goals to at least 7 with alternate weapons on 3 of the models.

 

Currently 3 are done with 3 to finish over the next week or 2.  This is what a set looks like:
