These Elementals are one of my favorite miniatures in Descent 2nd E. But I prefer to take some artists liberties when painting them. The original picture shows them with fire on the outside and stone on the inside. I find that creates a too bright miniature that comes across a bit chaotic. Instead I made the outer part of the creature stone with deep rivers of lava peeking out from the cracks. This creates a great look and is easy for even a beginner painter to achieve.
- Start by painting yellow in all the cracks of the miniature.
- Add a bright orange starting the the edges of the yellow and slightly going up the walls of the cracks.
- Add a bright red to the very tip of the orange you just painted.
- Add a small line of white in the middle of the yellow.
- Let the miniature dry completely.
- paint the rocks a stone gray being careful not to cover up the work you just did in the cracks
- Add a little dark wash like Citidel’s nuln oil to just the gray painted parts. I like holding the miniature upside down so that the wash won’t run down into the lava and darken it.
- Then dry brush with your stone gray color.
- Add some white to the gray and dry brush one more time.
- To make the mystic green lava simply repeat the process using yellow, bright light green, and a slightly darker green paint instead of the yellow, orange, and red combo. You still do a little white in the middle of the lava.
Ill include a link to a video that does a good job of showing a visual step by step of this process. If the link isn’t working simply YouTube search: Cool Mini or Not tutorials how to paint lava.
