Seelah, Iconic Paladin (Bones) (89011)

Recommended Posts

 This past week I officially began working on the Iconics and Officially Licensed Pathfinder Miniatures Set, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter,  and painted the Seelah, Iconic Paladin, figure.   Nothing fancy, just a quick job to get her tabletop ready.  After I did the finally spray varnish, I used a little bead of superglue to apply a small fingernail gem to the base of her sword.  

     I like the way she came out, though I probably should have spent a little more time with the free-hand on the shield.  It is an oddly shaped shield, and there really wasn't much room to do anything on it.  I guess I should have just done it in a solid color.   Nonetheless, it is a nice basic figure and was easy to paint.

C & C welcome

Nice work on her (particularly nicer than the job I did on mine). You really got a nice shine effect on the armor. I like the blue as well. I went with red. I liked it red up until I saw the blue. Ah well.

I'm mildly surprised you didn't paint her up as the sister of (insert fallen paladin's name here) from Cherowyn's warband. I know, it's not actualy her warband...(yet).

Pippin- I had originally planned to use her for Frostgrave, but the fact she was equipped with a bow & arrows made me reconsider; as there is no bow and sword armed, plate-armored type of soldier. So, I decided to use her in my regular grass-based fantasy figure collection. Edited by Chris Palmer

      This figure is a great load off my Shelf of Shame.
      I wanted to complete it for my friend's 40th birthday, as he was supposed to come back to town for a surprise party.  I never finished it, since he changed his plans and there was no party.  He and I go back to 7th grade, and have gamed together on-and-off for the better part of 25 years.  I've gone back to complete this figure after about a 3 year hiatus.  He is my first real attempt at an NMM weapon and armor.  The challenge with the sword was the spine of the sword is soft not crisp, so getting a straight line was tough.
       
      I asked my friend what his favorite type of character was to play.  His answer: Sword and Board fighter.
      I wanted the figure to resemble my friend: Very pale Caucasian, very light blond short hair.  Also, I wanted our high school colors to figure into the paint scheme: Green and White.
       
      I also like to find old gems from the Reaper store that need some love and new life breathed into them!  Ashlan definitely fits the bill.
       
      So, I present Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin.
       

       
      I had dreams at one point of making the suitable looking parts of the sword and tabard-trim into green gems, but gave up on that to get him DONE!.
       

       
      Part of the reason I gave up on this figure for so long was my failure to realize my ambitious goal to paint a freehand gold NMM device on the back to match the one sculpted on the front.  The back felt like it needed something.  I tried a white dragon for a while, like the shield, but didn't like it.  So I repainted the back and tried this gold device.  It came out "good enough" after about the third try, so I moved on.
       

       
      Overall, I'm very pleased with Ashlan.  In know my friend will enjoy it.  He's triple-sealed for gaming goodness.
      Now, I just have to pack him up for a safe trip to Seattle.
       
      Thanks for reading.
      C&C Welcome.

      So after giving  a good scrub with warm soapy water, gluing him to a base, and base coating with Brown Liner, I drybrushed his armor with shadowed steel, painted his eyes, blocked in face, and hair, and then went to town with the cloak and shield. 
       
      The shield is Dragon Bronze as the base, and the greens and blues are blends of Oceanic Blue, Viper Green, and Linen White and Pure Black.

      Hi all!
      Recently began painting miniatures. I got Crowe, Iconic Bloodrager. I made him a beard and colored it. How will you evaluate the work?
