I don't recognize all the models, but it seems to be from Descent, and the only difference between minions and masters is usually the color of the model (white : minion, ref : master), so it's a good way to differentiate the monsters.

Red/white is point of difference between minion monster and master monster, boss of a group. stronger one with more powers to kill heroes.
I used to do that but its not necessary (FFG is using red/white plastic for minion/monster)

Awesome paint job by the way!

Time to share some photos of my painting process. Everyone has his own, that is for sure, but as I do not have much time and I`m not a professional painter I need use some tricks (with inks dipping etc.

I usually start with the undercoat, primer. I have a photo of a miniature in front of my eyes (like Descent art or similar) and try to match as closely as possible base color of a miniature.

Example below shows my work in progress. In this case major color of the Drake is green so I prime it green.





From the other hand I also use black and skeleton bone (not white) for monsters and heroes as well



For High Mage Quellen I have already applied flesh skin tone.

After the base color I paint rest of the basic colors, not adding any fireworks - red, necro flesh, white, brown, metal etc.

You can see here that those monsters had blue as a base (check out the monster cards) and I have added red, white, bronze as details.







Those above were also shaded using Army Painter strong shade or AK Interactive streaking grime giving them little bit of complexity.

next post with details and basing - finishing the model

Starting from High Mage Quellen



I have used basic color for his clothes, gold for rings and strips and barbarian flesh for his skin, yellow for hair.
Some static grass for the base (not a lot, because its thin surface).
Everything was inked with strong tone army painter. When it was already dry I have used again tamiya flash for the skin, some gold and white for his shirt.


next post - reaver and arachnya, from previous posts

That's a fun looking mini, but it looks.... dry.
Maybe it's the picture otherwise I'd really suggest some serious gloss coatings.
