These are some new castings of Minifigs’ Sharadan Lords of Darkness from the Aureola Rococo line originally produced in the 1970’s. I think they hold up pretty well considering. I painted these in a quick and dirty manner with lots of washes so they would, in fact, look dark. They are photographed outside in natural light with a flash. To me, they look like they could come out of a Frank Frazetta comic book. GFI Miniatures has remolded some of these golden oldies and a small selection are available for purchase.
