Reaper Bones 77223 Kristiana, Female Paladin

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I decided that my (admittedly small) collection of figs was starting to need a feminine element. I grabbed this gal from my stash and started another project to help distract me from my other projects. I also chose her because I am trying to learn my NMM and she's got a fair amount of armor. So far I have only done a few Barbarian males, so I am trying hard to be considerably "softer" with her skin tones. Her face is the also the only skin on this fig so I am trying to give it a lot of attention as I know it will be where the eye goes first (no pun intended). 

  Hmmm, this is a phone camera photo and the skin color is a bit washed out. Oh well, this will serve as a good enough "starting point" post.

Good beginning! I look forward to seeing how she turns out. And I thoroughly approve of doing faces early - it always serves as a guide for their personality to me :)

Edit: I think my phone may take better pics than my camera. Hmm, a bit disconcerting. Here's the phone pic;

Cleaned her up a bit. Getting happier with her with every session. That's good for keeping up paint morale. Gotta go to work, but here's what transpired this morning:

 Thank's for stoppin in.

Well, I'm close to done here. Mostly I'm fed up with her, LOL. I don't want to bash the fig, after all, I've only just begun so what do I know? The casting is just not making things very easy for a beginner such as me. I've seen her in metal (Pathfinder maybe?) and I have to say I've been jealous. This Bones version has horrible swords and a noseless flat face that makes her look feline.

 I had some grand basing plans. That base will have to find another fig. However, I will take this one a little further, I don't want to get into the habit of leaving a project incomplete due to frustrations. I learned what I picked her up for so it's not time wasted (I keep telling myself). There are things I am pretty happy with, and I understand NMM more than I did. I still need to do more work on her blades, I really haven't given them proper attention, just threw on some paint here and there. I still need give her "headpiece" some attention as well, but I think I'll leave the front part as hair. It just doesn't show as a crown-like part as it does in other pics I've seen.

      Long time lurker, second time poster, first time upload.
       
      Here is the Frost Giant Queen from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter for your consideration. I was unable to participate in the Bones 3 Kickstarter as I came upon these Bones figures late in the game. However, the participants who were able placed their unwanted miniatures up on eBay, so I took advantage of opportunity when presented. I focused on Color Theory and Texture on this piece as she provided a very large palette to paint upon. These Giants provided me practice in sketching too, which makes the entire line appealing to me.

      Side note: Gratitude to those who did place these minis up on eBay without jacking up the prices. I was able to purchase the both Frost Giant Royalty around cost of what Reaper will sell them at Retail. This certainly displays an ethos in the Reaper community that makes this community stand out among others. Further, having lurked for awhile: the community here is quite kind and helpful. This is a good community of miniature painters.

      I like the Bones miniature range. The detail on this miniature was very close to what I expect from the metal range, and I will purchase more of the Bones range in the future. I am looking forward to the resculpt of Vanya, the Fire Giant Princess, and her new size to match the Fire Giants in D&D. The attire of this miniature is akin to the Viking attire of old, and I found my SCA ventures to assist me in painting this Viking Apron and embellishments. The sculptor did an outstanding job and I look forward to more of their work.

      The FAQs were an asset that made my first foray into Bones an easier one. I had difficulty with flash lines until I picked up some diamond files, which handled them quite well without marring detail like my serrated files. The bent pieces were fixed with some boiling water and cold water quite easily. The pieces fit together like a glove, though I admit I still pinned them. (My OCD was tingling.) I did use Krylon as Primer, and the tackiness disappeared after the first coat of paint. She was sealed only with Krylon Dull Cote and exhibits no tackiness. She has been handled and there is no rubbing off of paint.

      I like how her base was round, though I am ignorant of what would be an appropriate Reaper base to place this inside of. (I currently have the King on a GW Dreadnought base, and I do not like it. If anyone reads this and has a recommendation, I surely would appreciate it.)

      This Bones line of miniatures has proven to me to be a Good Idea and one I will support. I am already purchasing more of the Bones 2 line for my D&D and Oldhammer alternatives, and I admit excitement at the new of Bones 4. Based on the quality of these miniatures: you will have an additional participant. Please keep up the outstanding quality and amazing work.

      I hope you enjoy my efforts. C&C is always appreciated: it is the only way an Artist can improve.

      May your blends be smooth.
      Peace and blessings.

      This unicorn has a slightly lavender tone because my PC half-drow wild magic sorcerer, Grz'zilda, has already summoned a unicorn a few times through wild magic surges.

      So I was experimenting with Taimaya clears and I wanted to share what I've painted so far.
       


       
      I think the colors come out a little dark, but I love the jewel like gloss they dry to. 
       
      I am going to get me some Taimaya clear (with no color) and some Taimaya thinner and keep expirementing. 
       
      The Ghostly Summons has a few layers of Golden Glow over top to start building up some highlights. 
       
      And so does the NightSpectre.

      I got this guy done a few weeks ago, but I didn't pull out my camera to photograph him.
       
      Got to use him in a Pathfinder game a couple weeks ago. Made my heart beam with pride and joy being able to use a painted mini for what it was intended for in a game.

      Howdy,
       
        Finally got around to painting this conversion from ReaperCon last year...
       

       
      Maybe I'll see y'all at ReaperCon this year...
