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:

 

Succubus

 

 

Suggestions?

I agree with Glitterwolf, the purple skin tone of the succubus is lovely and it's the perfect opportunity to play and experiment with colors. I am looking forward to you painting her up, she is one of my favorite versions of Sophie.

I like the skin tone of the battle sister. I think light skin makes a nice contrast but that's just me. Curious about what you will come up with!

Huh.  I didn't know there was a pewter version of this.  I look forward to the black-and-red scheme.  So is she going to keep the sword, or are you going to go further along the 40K-ish route and give her some sort of gun or chain-weapon?

 

(I've got a plastic trollslayer Sophie, and haven't known what to do with it, as most of my focus has been either steampunk-fantasy (Iron Kingdoms), retro-post-apocalyptic (Fallout), or generic sci-fi/cyberpunk, but now I'm starting to get ideas.  Not likely going to DO anything with them, though, because I've got such a backlog of OTHER things to do first, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to have IDEAS.  :)  )

 

I look forward to seeing where you go with this!

Noted. We will see. My skills deteriorated pretty much. I just learned that when trying something different - but I will give it a try.

I actually THOUGHT about making her a 40k version and I looked for a Raging heroes weapon I somewhere had. Couldn't find it, though. So I think I will stick with the sword. I mean - a 40k Succubus Sister of Battle - imagine that. Heresy!

And a little update ...

 

Our Sophie made a bit of progress.

 

Did the first few layers of skin and painted the eyes. I tried to remember how I did demon eyes which I did on another figure and it looked pretty decent - I don't know ... this time it doesn't fully convince me. Maybe I have to adjust on the glowing. Hm.

 

Anyway: Here is what I'm currently been working on:

More to come tomorrow.

 

Oyasumi und gute Nacht!

I am so sorry I couldn't live up to your expectations, but I had some stuff to do over the weekend and it was near to impossible for me to continue. I will, I promise. Maybe we could match our timetables so I will continue on another weekend when you can't paint? ^_^

      Last night I took a painting lesson from a friend who happens to have won many awards for mini painting and this year won Grand Master in Lock and Load 2018. So for the model of choice we choose to paint the Reapercon Sophie. We both painted one and this is what I ended up with.
      First model I have painted fully in maybe 10 years.
       
      Gothic Sophie.

      Yet another new thread!
       
      (At some point I really should think about starting a blog, or whatever the cool kids do these days, instead of cluttering up the forum with my stuff.)
       

       
      While it's possibly a banning offence, I've gotta admit I don't particularly care for Sophie or her various minis, but this one really leapt out at me.
       
      I may have made things extra hard for myself by fully assembling everything, but she has little, dainty feet so I was never going to be able to pin her to a cork.
       

       
      Started with her skin (1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > 1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown), I was trying to give her a tan, but I don't think it's as simple as adding brown to the skin colour, however the colour I did end up with is rather nice.
      It's hard to see, but she also has (slightly googly) eyes, lip and eye makeup (1:1:1:2 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown/Hexed Lichen) and eyebrows (Scarlett Red), I also basecoated her hair while I had the Scarlett Red out.

      I finished up this lovely lady last night. She was wonderfully sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I really enjoyed the details on her and she was a lot of fun to paint. 
      I always mean to paint a Halloween figure before Halloween but am usually too busy to actually manage it. I got this figure while at Reapercon though and decided it was meant to be, so I put aside a couple of other things to make time for her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      I had a lot of technical issues with her due to my clumsiness - I dropped her THREE times which resulted in extensive repair work and having to reattach her to the pumpkin each time.  There’s no indentation or any other indication for how she’s meant to be attached to the pumpkin and assembly is not my strong suit so I struggled a bit with that part. The way I have her attached leaves her foot hanging past the base by a good bit so I’ll need to build the base up on a little bit of cork, but she looked the most correct to me this way. (She is currently still sitting on top of foam tape and the craft paint bottle that I used as a holder, I just painted them black for pictures.)
       
      I was asked over on facebook how I painted the wings, so I’ll copy that info over here as well:
      I basecoated with MSP Black Indigo. (That’s one of this year’s Reapercon swag bag paints. I think Nightmare Black would probably be fine to use in its place.) Then I layered up using paints from Nocturna’s Imperial Purple Set. They’re Vallejo paints made for Nocturna and I highly recommend both that set and the Crimson Red set. Both sets come with little painting guides and the purple one walks you through how to do both cold purples and warm purples. I went in the warm purple direction starting from the darkest colours and layering up to the lightest. So Imperial Purple > Purple Hex > Amethyst > Witch Purple > Lipstick. 
      Then I glazed over everything with MSP Gothic Crimson which was also a LE Reapercon paint, I think from the 2016 swag bag. (I can’t think of a replacement for that off of the top of my head but it’s a wine-maroon colour.) Then in the areas that I wanted to darken, like the transitions going back into the shadows and the backs of the wings, I glazed with the Black Indigo.

      This is a model by Duncan Louca, one of a set of three demons. The other two of the set are on the printer as I write this.

      I've printed it at 0.08mm in PLA on my Ender-3, scaled at 150% which brings it up to about 50mm tall. I added a base of my own, as the models are provided baseless.
