This past week, I painted Kassandra of the Blade from the Bones 3 Core Set. A couple weeks ago, I found myself painting up a Disney Monopoly Snow White figure to command a unit of Dwarf Miners (Long story you can read about here: Princess Snow), and I was really struck by the simple but effective primary color scheme of Snow White's outfit. I immediately decided I wanted to paint a Bones female fighter figure with the same palette.
So, I pawed through my boxes of unpainted Bones, and fell upon Kassandra of the Blade as the most suitable of what I had. The one thing I didn't like about her was the dual-wielding of swords. So I decided to chop off her left hand and replace it before I started painting her.
Then came the decision of what to replace it with. I considered a shield for a while, then in looking through my box of Bones transplant donors I came across Sarah the Seeress, whose staff had gone to make my Highland Heroine into a Frostgrave Appentice, leaving her with just her left hand holding an orb of some sort. At first I thought, no, why would Snow White be holding a crystal ball; but then it hit me: paint it like an apple. So it was an easy matter to cut off Kssandra's left hand at the wrist and glue on Sarah's hand with the orb.
And here's the final result. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and probably it's one of the best faces I've done to date.

Here's a big batch of miniatures, no common theme, that I finished recently.
The "Eyedra" assembled as the more generic Hydra option, from "Dark Platypus Games". Thanks to the Reaper Box of Goodwill for this one.
A Ral Partha "Dwarf Thief", more suited as a Gnome to modern scale, also acquired from the Box of Goodwill.
To celebrate their return to 5E in "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes", a Giff, 3D printed from designs from the wonderful DM Workshop.
A Goblin Monk. I believe he's originally an Orcling from Foundry/Warmonger.
Another Goblin, perhaps an Alchemist. A Warhammer Snotling.
A Dire Pillbug, originally intended as a Myconid Mount, from "Ganesha Games", in their "Fightin' Fungi" range.
Also of note is the backdrop, which are my in progress 3D printed Caverns set from "Printable Scenery"
