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? ^_^

      I decided to go with a sapphire troll! He won't last long, I'm afraid, walking around in a world with our greedy loot-crazed bunch.
       
      This guy makes me want to do an entire Terry Pratchett troll series: Ruby, Detritus, Mister Shine, even Chrysoprase in his suit.
       
       



       
       
      Happy painting,
      Laura

      I recently (not really recently...) backed the new Blood Rage Digital kickstarter. I've had my eyes on the game for some time but didn't want to buy it without the plastic tokens, so when the kickstarter came along I jumped on board. While waiting for the extras I'm planning to buy the core game and get it painted. With one of the pieces being the Fire Giant I want to enhance the base with some fire effects (lava or the like). But I needed something to practice on. Balor became that something. Or the base at first. Then I just had to finish it. I had higher hopes when I started but I don't have the patience for lager miniatures, so I ended up cutting as many corners as I could. All and all it did end up better than I thought it would.

      I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking. 
      I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking. 
       
      So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind. 
      I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome. 
       
      BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
