A glorious day... A Seven day... Ere the deadline rises!!!
Another WIP for me to do this week. I've got Isla Darkstep, Reaper SKU #02698 which I'm painting up for my final D&D player. This one is going to be painted up to look like a drow.
Anyhow, getting started, I have a couple pics as I got it cleaned and prepped now. Again going with black primer first and then I'll wait until it dries and do some white primer dry-brushed over it to pick out details. I just placed her integral base on a 1 inch circle of wood that I like to use for my bases and then put some procreate around the edges and sculpted the stones to match what was on her base to the best of my limited sculpting ability.
So, when I first tried painting this, I made tolerably decent base for it, coated it with Tamiya Clear Green, and observed that the details were totally unclear. So I highlighted it with yellow. And it looked ....
And therefore, I put it on the Shelf of Shame, from whence it has been reproaching me these past three years.
"Fiiiiniiish usss," the ghostly damsels kept whispering to me in spooky undertones.
"Nope," I said, and returned to all kinds of other projects.
"Awwww," they would say, and disspiritedly return to moping in their eldritch green flame.
But tonight, I finally decided that the only solution was to disregard the translucent plastic and paint the ladies as if they were any other mini. Thus, I give you a Ghostly Summons.
Pics linked for nudity.
I had to wipe the whole thing down with a wet brush to remove the surface dust first. >.>
I think the skin tone on the green one came out best. I have no earthly idea when I'll actually use this mini for anything, but at least they're off the Shelf of Shame.
