Looking great already!

 

Just a process question: Are you going to paint the hands/arms after you attach them or are you painting them now as you go along and will then attach them?

Thanks very much!  I'm actually painting them at the same time separately, so every time I add a wash I add it to the separate arms and weapons as well.  This is the first time I've tried painting separate pieces and right now for example I only primed the hand and glove on the dear lady and the two hands on the axe of our noble gentleman.  When I get to what I feel is the appropriate point (not sure when that is yet), I'll glue those pieces on, finish priming them and then will probably paint them close to last.

And started working on their eyes. started with lemon yellow, then put some ghost white over them before “the dot”. Next will color the dot in. Some kind of blue, they’ll be, probably true blue. DF41A25E-622F-4FE6-BB3C-7E80AB3CB714.thumb.jpeg.171606ab1d724ef9174c93c0305f16cc.jpegEDB48AD7-6D9C-4D47-8D3C-D7BDB8904B1A.thumb.jpeg.864eefab15be19254828cff2823ab173.jpeg

This morning, blocking out the hair

Didn’t get too far last night as I’m working on some other minis at the same time but managed to get some linen white on her tunic  8F733EAB-BE40-4DBF-B73C-AB21DE7E261C.thumb.jpeg.41eefecbe66c1eb7f40779797406b41e.jpeg

Got a little farther tonight. The chick’s tunic is probably more or less done with the white, and got my first few coats for he armor of the guy, which started out with dark elf highlights. Looking too dark in my  photo but still working on it. 66B2C6A3-D6EA-40CF-B038-CBA2B2B8E7F3.thumb.jpeg.692929af82b55d220356eaf92d83fc3f.jpeg0ABCD9FF-4EC3-4308-9286-A9AB5AC5F4C9.thumb.jpeg.d3d8b6bb92bab3cf556514ea6701c621.jpeg

Was taking pictures of some other miniatures, so used my normal camera, not my iPhone against a black backdrop...

      Well, I decided to start another WIP.  This one a sort of Halloween theme.  The Vampress  Siobhana, Vampiress by reaper.  Got some work done on her awhile ago and decided in the spirit of the season to try and finish her up.  Unfortunately I couldn't remember exactly the method I painted up the face, so I got as close as I could on the legs and hands.  Here's where she is at the moment.

      Here is the female assassin from the Grenadier Action Art set “Monsters”. I don’t really think of female assassins as monsters, except in the metaphorical sense. I would have been a little disappointed if a box labeled “Monsters” had had a bunch of people. But anyway... Her face is a bit rough; the sculpting makes her look old, but her short dress seems to imply a young woman. But maybe it’s just a long shirt?

      This is an old school mini from the German rpg Das Schwarze Auge, 15500b: Female Sorcerer. I found it on the Ral Partha Europe website. WIP (incomplete) here.
       
      I'm rather pleased with how the light refraction and reflection effects on her orb turned out.

      This is the second of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone.  The 1980s vibe is strong with this one, and if that is not supposed to be Grace Jones I will eat my hat.
       
      I gave her semi-Egyptian makeup and an ankh tattoo because of course (The Nefertiti references are pretty obvious), and tried to stick with a 1980s color palette to go with the 1980s natural waist and shoulder pads.
       
      WIP thread (unfinished) here.
       

       

       

       

       
      The other figure in the set, the man, can be found here.
       
      A girl from the set "1502 Teen Robo Hunters" can be found here.

      This is the first of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone.  I'm not sure if they were ever official Shadowrun miniatures, but they are definitely a 1980s vision of the future.

      The red is pretty intense, but tends to dry shiny no matter what I do. Here's a slightly different angle:
