They look really nice, but indeed it looks like you put lots of efforts in those, how long is the average you need per mini?

I was rather hoping to do the Mini-Bosses with more care, as well as the Heroes, but do a bit of a speed-paint  with the
simple monsters, like base-colors and army painter, simply considering the amount of minis...

Hey, thanks!  It's hard to say since I haven't been timing...  The first one of each color scheme takes a bit longer since I'm making color decisions along the way.  I'm going to estimate that each minion is taking about 2.5 Three Stooges episodes, or about 45 minutes.

Except for a bit of finishing work on the base, this guy is done!  Woot!

Yardu's base coats are complete and I have applied a wash.

Can't help but think the bases need some work. I just can't get over seeing the tab of the model.
Yardo looks great so far.

I love what you did with the stalker. I'm not a fan of the blue on the origional art and much prefer your take.

I don't disagree with you, but I really don't like basing...  I plan on doing a lot of MYTHing on the Dwarven Forge pieces that are also in most of the pictures, so I plan on giving each base a simple paint job to match.  Then in the future I can go back and redo the bases if I ever want to...  I have not finished one of the bases yet, but will try to get a picture up when I do.

I'm glad you like the stalker.  I've decided to do a few different tribes/hives for each monster type, each with a slight variation of in-game mechanics/abilities.  I'm doing a blue stalker as well, but still quite different from the original MYTH art.  This one here is still WIP.

I decided that I wasn't really happy with the shades of blue that I had previously used and so I have started to repaint the claws and tail on this guy...



I've also started on 1000 Legs and I hope to have some pictures up soon...

He's just too good to be true, can't take my eyes off Yardu...

Ha ha!  I've always imagined Yardu with an electric guitar.

I've started work on the T1KLegs.
