Drakon Heroes - A Light Fantasy Tile Placement Game

This has been another journey into spending 20 times as long painting a game as it will ever spend on the table.

This time, it's the Drakon heroes.
As always you can click on the image to see them in higher detail.

These figures have been some of the hardest I have painted, because they are unique to the game, and because the artist went overboard with the artwork making them very hard to match, but I decided I was going to try anyway.

I am going to post the details here, and let you all decide for yourselves how you think I went.

Knight and Sorceress - Front View

Knight and Sorceress - Back View

For the Knight I decided to paint almost purely in tinted metallic paints, while the Sorceress has no metallic paints at all. These were the first two I painted.

Here is the art they are based on.

After this I mixed and matched styles based on what was needed.

Druid & Ranger - Front View

Druid & Ranger - Back View
Here is the art they were based on.

Finally we have the two smallest figures. Not only were the Drakon minis smaller than anything I have worked on, these were small Drakon figures. I think the Thief was only about 20mm tall.

Fighter & Thief - Front View

Fighter & Thief - Back View
And again, the art they were based on.

I spent way too long painting these, for a light tile placement game that almost never hits the table. But I enjoyed painting them.

All that's left to paint from this game is Drakon herself, the dragon that the heroes are stealing from. For Drakon I am going to try a wet blend which should make it fast, though it's a technique I am not experienced with.

Anyway, I hope you like the figures; please feel free to let me know what you think.
