03784: D'Vandra Lukesia

15 posts in this topic

While I mentally work my way back to Saladin, I've been doing some small projects. I'm running a 13th Age game and one of my players is a necromancer. She was quite pleased when I produced D'Vandra for her to use during battles. I decided to paint D'Vandra for brush warmup and as OSL practice. Nothing fancy, however, as this figure will see some wear and tear as it gets moved around the battle field.

 

Here are the first steps. I basecoated using Solid Blue, then highlighted with Ashen Blue and Misty Grey. I may go back and push the highlights to a pure white. I'm not quite satisfied with them but also don't plan on spending a ton of time on this figure so we'll see. I then went back and put sold blue, corporeal shadow, purple shadow, and blue liner into the folds of her dress. Here she is now. The shadows have been a bit washed out by the direct light. :(

I agree with Loth, that color choice is lovely.

I got more, more, more. Found some time to work on her last night and made some good headway (ha ha! I started the hair). I decided I was pretty pleased with the blue so I started work getting more color on the figure. I put some Old Bronze on the rib cage chest plate thing, then I washed it with some brown and blacks to get it to look aged. My plan is to highlight and then put a patina on in some spots.

I started doing the skin in a grey color. This character is a Necromancer (we're playing 13th Age) and is mostly dead (forget the exact name of the ability). Unfortunately, the skin looked awful, kind of like I'd just primed it and left it so I painted over the few highlights I'd done with a mix of Maiden Flesh and a reddish brown.

 

The sash has been basecoated in Gothic Crimson. The hair with Vallejo Air Warlock Purple (I think), then shaded with a mix of gothic crimson and black. Look for some highlights next time!20170424_231546.thumb.jpg.b589d8881ddbab14e3ded2e09d62c08c.jpg

I am so glad I bought this mini as she is so pretty! Who knows when I will get around to painting her.

 

As for your little lady, I am really digging (no pun intended, just a happy accident lol) the colors you are using! Gorgeous!

The fuchsia hair is thrilling. You're making me want to add this figure to my wishlist. 

She may be used as a necromancer, but the themes are reminding me of the ocean. Kinda like an undertaker woman at a lighthouse.

So this figure is getting done all out of order. I have another figure where I'm working on the hair so I did the hair on poor Dvandra before doing the skin. I also started basecoating some of her accessories. The scroll case and the embalming jar will be bone(ish). The satchel is blackened brown right now. The ribbons have been highlighted but not shaded. I'm hoping the shade will raise the contrast enough to make them look good. Right now the highlighting is a little underwhelming. I see a couple places on the hair where I need to fix the blending. Such is the price of accidentally taking such huge pictures (with my phone, even, I need to figure out how to control that).

Time to paint has been hard to come by lately. I have made some more progress on D'Vandra. I've finished her leather straps and put some shading in to her ribbons. I darkened the shade of bone I'm using for the various vessels she's carrying and decided to do more bronze for accents. I still need to attempt the skin. I think I'll do that once I'm satisfied with her external rib cage.

So I did the skin. It's not my favorite but is slowly growing on me. It's very pale and probably won't show the shading until I bother to take nice pictures of her. In the meantime, I've finished the bronze. Still a bit of work to do. I realized, annoyingly, the bottom of shovel is wood, it's just covered with some geegaws. So now I need to repaint that. The roses will get brighter, I like the touch of brightness they bring.

Beautiful colours on this little lady. I really, really like how her skin looks - like one of those creepy evil porcelain dolls, so if she's meant to be mostly dead, then it definitely works.

I've been busy painting, just haven't been busy taking pictures and posting here. I've mostly finished Dvandra. I need to take some glamour shots and put them into the show off thread. What needs to be done is that her shovel seems to have sustained some damage and I may have to pin the handle back into her hand. I also need to paint the base a uniform black/dark color. In the meantime, enjoy her necromantic machinations as she raises a skeleton from the dead:

      About this project
      They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this Earth, over vast millennia, built their civilizations, reaching heights we cannot even fully imagine now. They spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their barest remnants.
      This is the Ninth World. The people of the prior worlds are gone—scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But their works remain, in the places and devices that still contain some germ of their original function. Some call these magic, but the wise know that these are our legacy. They are our future. They are the...
      Set a billion years in our future, Numenera is a tabletop roleplaying game about exploration and discovery. The people of the Ninth World suffer through a dark age, an era of isolation and struggle in the shadow of the ancient wonders crafted by advanced civilizations now millennia gone. But discovery awaits for those brave enough to seek out the works of the prior worlds. Those who uncover and master the numenera can unlock the powers and abilities of the ancients, and bring new light to a struggling world.
      The original Numenera RPG was launched via a 2012 Kickstarter campaign that shattered every record (at the time) for tabletop RPGs. The corebook has seen four printings, and Numenera is enjoyed by tens of thousands of gamers in an active global community. We have published over 60 supplements and accessories, and released a terrific starter set for new players. The Ninth World has spawned a critically-acclaimed hit computer game, board games, an excellent short film, a line of novels, and other licensed items, and Numenera has been translated into many languages including French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, German, and Portuguese.
      Numenera is a game in which player characters explore the ruins of aeons past to gather amazing treasures and help build a new future for a world struggling in darkness. Since the launch of Numenera in 2013, we have delivered well on the first part, but we’ve always wanted to do a more thorough job exploring that second part. That desire has led us to Numenera 2 and this Kickstarter campaign.
      Through this Kickstarter we’re going to replace the existing corebook with two new corebooks. The first is called Numenera Discovery and the second Numenera Destiny.
      Numenera Discovery will be a book that covers familiar territory; it is basically a revision of the original Numenera corebook. Next summer, we will allow the original corebook to go out of print, and Numenera Discovery will take its place. In Numenera Discovery, you’ll get some revisions to make things clearer and more fun, and to increase the options available to players. Nanos, Jacks, and Glaives will get an overhaul. Many foci and some of the descriptors might see some reworking. You’ll have more options, clearer rules, and perhaps a bit of expansion to the regions of the Steadfast and the Beyond that are covered in the existing corebook.
       
      But Numenera Discovery is not a new edition. We will make virtually no changes to the way the game plays mechanically—and none of those changes affect the way NPCs, creatures, or items like cyphers or artifacts work. We also won’t be making changes to the setting. So if you already play Numenera, your bestiaries, adventures, card decks, character portfolios, and books like Into the Night, Technology Compendium, and Jade Colossus will not be affected by these changes. We will not issue any “second editions” of the existing supporting titles—and if you choose not to get Numenera Discovery, future Numenera supplements will work fine with your existing Numenera corebook. Your ongoing campaign will flow smoothly through the change in corebooks. You will even be able to mix existing characters with those from Numenera Discovery into your game. In fact, the game can be played with both the existing corebook and Numenera Discovery in use at the same game table!
      (One small exception: Numenera Character Options and Numenera Character Options 2 will remain compatible, but will become substantially less relevant following the improvements to characters in Numenera Discovery. We will retire those titles.)
      As excited as we are about Numenera Discovery, we may be even more excited about Numenera Destiny. This title will enable characters to truly become a part of the setting—to help shape the future of the Ninth World. The people of the Ninth World are locked in a medieval-like state, a world of struggle and danger and often suffering in the shadow of the prior worlds’ wonders. Numenera Destiny allows you to build adventures and campaigns in which players don’t just explore the wonders of the past—they utilize them to help lift the Ninth World out of darkness.
      You can make the world a better place. Help a community defend itself from abhumans or the iron wind. Create centers of learning or trade. Innovate, build, and protect. Manage an entire community and help it prosper and grow—or simply create a cool base or vehicle for your adventuring group. Numenera Destiny will allow you to take what you discover and make your mark on history as someone who elevated the Ninth World into the future.
      Adventuring—exploring the weird and wondrous remnants of the prior worlds—remains, of course, at the core of Numenera play. Numenera Destiny will give you new things to do with your discoveries, along with entirely new and epic ways to structure your campaigns. You’ll discover materials, power sources, and treasures that you can utilize in an entirely new, robust crafting and building system. And perhaps best of all, Numenera Destiny will offer three new character types and a number of new descriptors and foci geared toward this innovative style of play.

      Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
       
      I have read through 80% of it.
      I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
       
      If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.
