Mysterious Emissary

I liked this miniature the moment I saw its concept art. However, its in game usefulness has been putting me off. Eventually I decided to buy it, hoping that Wave 5 will give it a better 0ss upgrade and make it viable in game. Right now it feels like the Emissary is too suit-dependent and using it depends on cards you draw too much.




The model of Emissary himself isn't that impressive. An Ent-like creature seems a bit too generic and doesn't really look original. His base though is a different story. Large carnivorous plants and fairy-like Changelings look like part of a diorama. They bring a lot to the whole thing.



I painted the base separately and used bright, vivid colors that would contrast with bark of the Emissary. In order to add some extra depth to the creature I used Agrellan Earth to add come extra cracks to his bark. I further emphasized the "nature" feel by gluing small patches of static grass in various colors to the areas that I felt seemed too empty.

EDIT: After reading summaries of new upgrades, it seems like the Emissary did get a decent Conflux upgrade that should make him a viable piece in her crew.

    1. Tutaj było dużo zabawy z różnymi glazami, starałem się uzyskać zróżnicowany, ale też w miarę naturalny odcień. Dzięki za komentarz.

  2. Kolejna genialna figurka, jak to zwykle u Ciebie. Podobają mi się te małe duszki wyłażące z rosiczek.

    1. Teoretycznie można ich używać jako osobne modele w grze ale pozbawienie całości takich dodatków na podstawce za bardzo by zepsuło odbiór całości.
