The first miniatures of 2017 are finished. Three Yaoguai (demons) join the retinue of Lo Pan. The colour scheme is much brighter than I've been used to painting lately. I wanted them to look quite vibrant and for the saturation to make them seem slightly otherworldly. I added some silver into the highlights for the sash to make it look more like silk. Not too easy to see here, but the shine on the sash is pleasant when the miniatures are in hand. The robes got some heavy glazing treatment until they were extremely vibrant. The flesh then had to be fairly neutral so that there wouldn't be too many competing colours. The horns and hair followed suit. In the end I'm very happy with them, though I did see a wee chip on one of the demon's robes! (It's been repaired since.)
With these guys finished, I only have Lo Pan himself left to add to the unit and they are done. I have the next unit for the army already prepped and primed, a unit of six floating guardians.
