I finished Reaper's Valloa, Female Elf Thief (SKU 3566), a fun little figure with a lot of attitude. I am very happy with the blond hair on this one. Her face was a bit miscast, so her one eye is a bit weird. There had to be some reason she decided on this career choice...
These are the Wizkids unpainted pre-primed Elf Sorceresses (SKU WZK72606). I painted these up in April, just got around to adding basing and taking photos.
For the price I think they are great, but they are definitely not as nicely detailed as the renders. I decided to paint one up in a druidic color scheme. I had issues with her face, since the faces are true scale, not heroic. Not my best face, but its for tabletop, so it will do. Also her hand didn't have any finger definition, so I painted it as a knitted mitten.
^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy.
He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment.
I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it).
First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours
And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand.
I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background.
Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!
