In celebration of the Elemental Evil storyline, I’m going to be painting Gale Force Nine’s earth, air, water, and fire myrmidons. Each of these miniatures is going to offer some unique challenges and employ a variety of techniques.

The elemental myrmidon miniatures all represent elementals wearing heavy armor, based on illustrations by Filip Burburan that I had the pleasure of art directing. Since I have a connection to these creatures, I want to keep the color themes close to those in the original painting. The earth myrmidon seems like it’ll be the easiest, so I’ll start with that.

I’m going to explore the process of painting the elemental myrmidon miniatures over the course of a number of articles. In this installment, I’ll talk about the all-important preparations for painting.
