The second hero for my Fyreslayers is finished, the Auric Runemaster!
I think this is a really lovely miniature and I’m really happy to have him finished to lead my Fyreslayers until I finish the Auric Runefather on Magmadroth, which is the next thing on my list! The eye catching part of this model is without a doubt his fiery staff. I really wanted to make this stand out. I painted it all Yriel Yellow, and then blended up through Fire Dragon Bright, Troll Slayer Orange, Wild Rider Red, Evil Sunz Scarlet. This was done by mixing the progressive highlight in with the previous one to achieve a transition from yellow to orange. I sponged on Doombull Brown and Black on the very edges to give it a smouldering appearance. I then glazed the top section Bloodletter to help the blend join together, and Lamenters Yellow at the bottom to make the centre of the flame look bright.
Overall, I think he is a nice addition to my Fyreslayers. It was nice painting a hero model after painting 10 of the Vulkite Bezerkers. As I mentioned next up is my Auric Runefather on Magmadroth!
That's nice to hear thank you very much 🙂
I love the contrast of fiery model and ice bases. Most people do lava bases, this is such a refreshing change. Great paint job too.
Thank you 🙂 that was the plan, I'm happy with how they came out too!
I really enjoy the contrast too. The grey blue on some of the details really creates the impression of a bleak winter day. Makes the flame appear even brighter too. 🙂
i'm a big fan of how you have done your fyreslayers. they don't seem to be as garish as other i have seen. the colours all seem to blend together making the models more than just a big amount of orange hair.
That's really nice to hear, thank you. I know what you mean I think the sections of black hair help separate up all of the orange. As Garfy said, whilst fire bases can look really good and do fit the Fyreslayers I think it can sometimes look a little too much with all similar colours.

Lovely work. Your colour control is great, the smooth flesh tones, oranges and browns tie together very nicely.
