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.

Soon! I need to get her done for d&d friend. I like to wait until primer cures for a day before slapping paint on figures.

I was just thinking of painting this exact mini!  Probably won't get to it for a while, it was more for display than actual gaming. 

 

It will be interesting to see her as a drow, since that was really not my plan.  ^_^

This is one I was looking at for a Pathfinder Rogue / Shadowdancer.  As Ramelle shows her ears, that one was out for the main human disguise... so it was down to Ilsa or Lanelle and Ilsa just has so much more character.

I agree. No likes for just primer! At least show us the stripping of mold lines and flashing. 

 

Get painting. But yes, cure the primer first.

A bit of progress tonight, trying to get this kicked out tonight and finish tomorrow. Want to get working on other projects soon and this one is a quick tabletop job that needs doing.

 

Skin is Dark Elf Triad, the cloak is Monarch Purple with misty grey highlights and using inks to try to brighten it up. The leather base color so far is Dusky Skin. Eyes are Cactus Flower.

Ah! A fine startoff.

 

I really like the overall dark appearance of this paintjob contrasting the glowing eyes.

 

You can literally imagine her rising from the shadows.

 

Great work.

 

I am curious to see her finished.

I agree with the canine glitter cannon. Purple is awesome.

Progress!

 

I've got the hair and the base to do, and I think I'll try to blend that purple a tad bit better, purple is one of those tough colors for me to get just right and be happy with, especially on such a small figure.

      I've had plans to paint this for a long time, wanted to get it done before the bones 4 dark elf throne piece overshadows it.

      So one of my friends who plays dnd with me painted this one yesterday to be used as his pc in our campaign. He actually hasn't painted any minis for a few years so this one was a comeback for him . I really like how it turned out!

      Following the conclusion of Storm King's Thunder, our group has started The Curse of Strahd, and I decided to play a thief. Going through my collection of minis, the River Widow mini from ReaperCon called out to me. As usual, after cleaning the few bits of flash and mold lines, I paused... How did I want to base her. I've made extensive use of the Ruined Temple Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku... but for this game I decided that I was going to use the Fishscale brick pattern which I'd picked up during their Black Friday sale. I clipped the tab connecting her feet, leaving only 2 spikes from each foot to anchor her into the greenstuff. 
       

       
      Once the greenstuff had cured, I glued her in place, and after waiting for the superglue to dry, I primed her with Reaper's Brown Liner. I then immediately tackled her eyes, trying to mirror what Derek did on his.  Seriously check this out, it's amazing... 
       

       
      So... I didn't quite achieve this, but it's probably the closest I've ever managed. Also I don't have a camera (or the skill) to capture a pic of this quality. 
       

       
       
      I basecoated her flesh with Ruddy Flesh, and then used Tanned Shadow on top of that. The bodice is based with Rich Indigo with Burgundy Wine over it. Her hair and lips are Auburn Shadow. 
       


      So far, so good, but I've got a lot more work to go.

      89014: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus - BONES. Can you say 'fiddly bits'? This guy is packed to the gills with fiddly bits to paint. Yup, that much detail on a BONES miniature.
       
      Painted in Autumn palette with NMM, OSL, and Texture. Really dig this miniature and how much character that was packed into 28mm. Another Klocke sculpt! That guys is brililant. Or insane. Or insanely brilliant. Either way, I like it.
