So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr.
After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next.
As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan.
I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature.
So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her?
It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again.
As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use.
Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ...
... Sisters of Battle ...
hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly.
I'll take it!
Well then - primed her and started painting.
But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one:
I had this little fellow primed and in a box for over two decades now.
So finally I decided to paint him.
I had a real nostalgic feeling with this one.
He is a Hill Troll from Ral Partha, but nowadays he would be as big as a goblin or small orc.
Anyway: Hope you enjoy him.
A Troll for Blood Bowl, as chosen by my Patrons.
Pretty fun to paint, but 19 pieces for a single model is...ridiculous?
Also tough to photo - all the deep, crossing-over parts cast big shadows, and in order to light them you get major hotspots elsewhere.
I feel he turned out pretty nice.
