Really well done, I think you already have a firm grip at it. The gem, the hair and sword are great too.

I derived this simplified pattern from the pattern I did on an earlier project.  That tartan was loosely based upon the  Afghanistan Memorial Tartan. 

 

However, the white lines and red lines on that project did not work out well at all.  So I simplified it to get the pattern on this miniature.  Note that the tartan I linked to above has a blue pattern, rather than the green I chose to use on this miniature. 

 

I really like that pattern of that tartan, but it turned out my hands were too shaky and I didn't have the paint consistency right for doing the smooth thin lines needed to make it look good.  I needed to drink less coffee and thin my paint differently.  When I used straight liquitex flowaid to thin the dark green for the thin lines, they turned out very fine and smooth as you can see on Ian MacAndrew.  The choice of miniature to apply the plaid pattern to is very important as well.  Flared skirts the one in the picture below are quite difficult to line up the pattern on.  Like I said in my original post, I'm still working out the process.

Excellent work! I've really wanted to pick up some of the highlanders and try to work on tartans.

      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.

      These are Reaper's 77351: Cultists in Bones, sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
       
      For some reason this paint was seriously resistant to a matte finish on Bones. Oh, well.
