Pingo posted a topic in Works In ProgressThis is Reaper's 50159: Sister Maria, Nun, sculpted by Patrick Keith. I have a friend who once was a nun, who now writes murder mysteries. Some while ago I made a joking reference to my hobby of painting tiny D&D characters and out of curiosity she took a look at Reaper's main site. Which just happened at that moment to have this figure at the top of the page. She was tickled. We are planning a trip by her part of the country this summer, and hopefully we will be able to meet up for a visit. So I am painting up Sister Maria as a present. Basic prep involved gluing her to her base and gluing in her left hand. I chose the ruler option. I had trouble pinning and in the end just glued her hand into place. Then I primed her thinly with Titanium White and washed her with Burnt Umber (not shown). This is my basic prep for all metal minis. I checked with my friend what the colors of her order had been. Then I started with a little white on the nun's habit. I painted solid Mars Black on her dress and along the base edge. I'm a little sorry I did, actually, because it's so black and solid there's little room to go. Normally when I paint blacks I like building up layers of color like a watercolor. Then I did a little preliminary brushing of highlights in a very simple cold grey. This is very rough and crude yet.
