      This is Reaper's 60164: Vampire Hunter, as she is rather innocently called. She is remarkably armed and armored. I think she is from Pathfinder, and I am sure there is some story there.
      There is no WIP thread.
      Comments and critiques are, as always, welcomed.

      This is the female vampire hunter, BFM MLS008 from Bad Squiddo Games.
      There is no WIP thread.
      As always, comments and critiques are welcome.
      I painted her up as a Latina because something about her outfit felt a little Spanish Baroque to me.

      All of the sculpts from the 25th anniversary miniatures were great. All of them amazingly painted. 
      But there was one of them which palette I didn't really liked... too much color :d
      So I painted my Dain Deepaxe with a sober palette.

      This past weekend I started painting Brom, the 54mm scale dwarf from Enigma. The sculpt has got a mix of equipment and, to be honest, I'm not even sure what all of it is. It gives him a lot of character, but presents some challenges with the painting. I've been putting a lot of thought into how I want to approach the piece and finally decided to pick a color scheme and let that tie the figure together.
      I started with the face. Considering most of it is hidden by the hair, the beard feels almost as important as the rest of the face.  I used a mix of Reaper's Ruddy Leather, Secret Weapon's Orange Rust, and Reaper's Burnt Orange and Fair Skin Highlight.  I find the light skin tones are nice for highlighting hair, I'd do the same with brown hair.  For the blood stained cloth on his head, I used a mix of Carnage Red and Walnut Brown.  I wanted it to be darker near the center, so more brown, and the moving to pure red near the boundaries.  I applied the red as a glaze over the white cloth to give it the right look.  Instead of using the well palette that I'd normally turn to for glazes, I ended up mixing them directly on my wet palette.  Normally that produces a mess, but I used a bit of paint and then added a bunch of matte medium (plus a little water).  The matte medium is thick, so it creates the right transparency without causing the glaze to flow all over the palette.  Then I then it down slightly with water for a consistency that's easier to paint with.  The effect is the same as a regular glaze, but since it's on the wet palette it's easier for me to mix paints and create different colored glazes.  It's also easy to vary the consistency/transparency by changing up the ratio of matte medium and paint.  So I can quickly make a section more opaque and another more transparent.  Not something I do for all glazes, for in situations like this it's a nice option to have in my tool kit.

      And here's the full figure.  Still a lot left to paint!
