Dreadmere Begins...

Recommended Posts





Painted her floaty belt/sash and the tassel on her hood, started with a base of Night Blue, shaded with 1:1 Night Blue/Pure Black and highlighted with 1:1 Night Blue/Off-white, finally glazed it with thinned Night Blue.


Then I basecoated her wrist thingys and bodice (don't know why I thought it was a good idea to do this after I'd painted her hair) with Cork Brown and Bonewhite before giving it a Brown Wash.




Later I finished these off with a second highlight of Bonewhite, some Bronze bits and a Sepia Wash.


Then I noticed at some point I'd rubbed some of her hair off. Despite re-doing it exactly like before, it looks different and, dare I say, a little bit better.

Made a little progress:-




Painted her enchanted shovel, Oily Steel head with Black and Brown Washes, Bronze decoration, Parasite Brown handle and Iraqi Sand wraps.

Also painted her scroll tube (Stone Grey > 2:1 Wolf Grey/Stone Grey, with Bronze decorations and a Brown Wash).


Just gotta brainstorm some colours for her remaining doodads.

She got a satchel (1:2 Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash > 1:2 Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow > 1:2:1 Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite), either a wand with a glowing tip or a dagger handle with a bejewelled pommel (Bronze with a Light Green top), a red health potion or possibly an inkwell full of blood (Carnage Red with a Bronze top) and a really large blue mana potion (Andrea Blue with a Bronze top).


And that's her done, just the base to go, need to read up on the colours I used on the others first.

Base done.

Didn't make a start on pouring the water effect stuff though, her enchanted shovel decided now was a good time to drop off, so I had to reattach that, and tidy up the paintwork.

They look even more WONDERFUL in a group, a very striking quartet. VERY WELL DONE!

That was the impression I got also, especially on the latest one. It may not have been intentional, but it is an attractive effect.

Great Work, I love the bases, the foggy water looks cool.  Almost gives the impression of a mist hanging over the water.


My thoughts exactly.


Great work, aku-chan!

      Hello friends!
      My son and I play Talisman 4th edition all the time. I'ts his favorite game. The figures that come with the game aren't the greatest sculpts. With the Talisman board game having some great themed art i've wanted to get some cool Reaper Bones figures as replacements, paint them up and base them for the game.
      I've searched Reapers database to find figures that matched the likenesses of the miniatures that come with the game and the art on each character card. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go with the strictly Bones route. There are some figures in the Dark Heaven Legends line that fit better.
      The attached is what i've come up with so far. I've included a photo of the original character cards and another photo of the corresponding Reaper figures that i've been thinking about.

      89012: Lem, Iconic Bard sculpted by Derek Schubert.  This guy was supposed to be a speed paint, but I got too interested in putting diamond patterns on his clothes.

      14465: Durin Dwarf Pathfinder Sgt sculpted by Tom Mason.  I never would have tried this blue and bronze colour scheme of my own choice, but one of the players in my D&D game requested it, and now I like it.

      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.
