Catgirl Pirate by Das Schwarze Auge (Ral Partha Europe)

Recommended Posts

This is a catgirl pirate ( "Nyamaunir-Piratin"), figure #15503C from Das Schwarze Auge, produced under license by Ral Partha Europe (which is not Ral Partha).

 

Got that?

 

She is a wee bit on the small side.  Here from left to right are a cat person (Khaliman) from the French "Alkemy" game, our little kee kat pirate, Reaper's 77340: Avatar of Sekhmet, and Reaper's 03478: Tawny Firehair, Cat Girl.

Here she is up close.  She has some nice details and a more fuzzy appearance than most of the cat people minis I've seen.

This is my standard priming:  A thinned coat of Titanium White allowed to dry for a full day, then a wash with thinned Burnt Umber.  It's related to Renaissance painting techniques and I find it gives a good warm foundation to start from.

 

I was painting her at the same time as some wolves, for economy of paint.  I figure I'm going to paint her like a grey cat.

 

The first coat of paint is a light grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened a good deal with white.

Here's a back view:

It may be noticed I'm a little casual how I apply my paint.  There are bits not covered and the paint has been thinned down and it isn't always the same opacity because of that and the under-brown shows through.

 

I mixed a slightly more translucent, darker version of the same grey and added some more.

Then I took some matte pure Carbon Black and indicated in her eyes, nose, mouth, and claws.  I put an undercoat of black on her sabers as long as I was at it, since I find it looks very good under silver.

Tune in later to find out what's next ...

Cool mini!

 

I have some DSA minis, they were originally from a German Company named Hobby Products, the same company that made the Demonworld 15mm Game.

Ral Partha Europe still sells both lines.

 

Wonderful stuff.

I like your approach!
