I need to get onto some Reaper figures I think but in the meantime here is a thief from North Star for Frostgrave.
Black gloves and boots, London Grey cloak, Royal purple accents. Then an Army Painter black/ "dark tone" wash over everything except the skin, which was strong tone.
Base is green stuff on a washer, made using the Greenstuff World cobblestone roller. Again once you get the hang of it and follow their videos on YouTube these come out very well and saves me from my usual problem of not doing enough on the bases.
Am going to have some open ruins but wanted something with lots of cover, but the risk of becoming a trap.
Here's another post.
Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years. He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people."
Life got in the way. I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion.
He sat and sat at the basecoat stage. I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black.
I am not too happy with it. It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here:
I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel.
But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black.
Here are some more shots of him.
I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face:
He's got a very intense stare.
The eyebrows didn't please me very much.
The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon.
If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife. I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows. I gave up on that ;)
Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue.
so here's my last little painted piece of happiness, another Hackmaster figure that Ral Partha has gotten a hold of, a human thief. I actually kind of have begun liking these figures quite a lot, as they feel like prototypes of their classes so often, kind of generic, but very nicely done in that old school feel. I wanted dark colors for this one, but didn't want just black, so hopefully gave him a bit of variety with the colors.
