Wow. Love this!

 

I have a ton of old GW Bretonnian archers that would probably work great for practicing on.

 

Thanks for sharing!

Wow!  Thanks for the detailed tutorial! At first look at the picture I thought to myself that I could never do something like that.  I still think my lines would turn out wonky but your tutorial makes it look less impossible at least.  Thanks again!

That's really impressive the (one) time I did tartan I *did* cheat, I basically just faked lines without connecting them, only really making lines where they might be seen, instead of actually doing a bunch of lines.

That is just awesome. 

I may have to try this soon...  

 

Also, tanks for tipping me off about the Sibeccai.

(I'll be ordering that one the next time I get something from that site)

She's one of my favorite minis, mostly because I'm running a D&D game in the Diamond Throne setting from Monte Cook.  She and her lookalikes get a lot of use in my game.

The Male Sibeccai Runethane from Iron Wind Metals is also a nice figure.  I've posted one in the show offs.  Male Sibeccai Runethane

This is relevant to my interests, because I've been eyeing Reaper's assorted highlanders.  I think I've figured out how to shade tartan, but hadn't yet gotten around to working out the pattern. 

 

Also, as an aside, I'm in the next maritime province east of you.

I've been eying the highlander, too.  I have a couple and what stops before I start is trying to figure out what to do the part which goes up over the shoulder.  The pattern is laterally compressed as a result of the bunching of the cloth, making it hard to figure out how to maintain continuity of the pattern with below their belt.  I'm going to try it at some point.  They are eying me mockingly from my shelf of shame for now.

 

Are you on The Rock?   Do you ever make it to Halcon?

      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.

      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.
