Siren Song: The Mermaid from Grenadier Fantasy Lords 6004: Monsters of Mythology

Recommended Posts

Very prettily painted, love the colors! I’ve got this one too somewhere.  The other mermaid from aeons past was the Tom Meier very tiny mermaid in a set of three lady beasties, that was also absolutely a beautiful figure.

The Siren is new to me. I am sure that a miniature, as LOVELY as your painted version is, would be memorable if seen. VERY WELL DONE once more!

 Nice.

I got a bunch of the MoM figures in an EvilBuy lot last year, including a couple of doubles. I really should paint some of them someday.

 

(The set (minus the treasure piles) is still available as individual figures from Mirliton in Italy if anybody wants them.)

She looks a bit chilly, out of the water. Very nice work, lovely photos.

      This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Librarian, a pleasantly sinister and unassuming character. The quote in the title of the thread is from Neil Gaiman.

      This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Mechanist, a nice little character for the more open-minded steampunk campaign. The quote in the title of the thread is from Gail Carriger, author of the "Soulless" steampunk series.
       
      I actually finished him around Christmas, but I never put up the Show Off thread. So here he is. Questions, critiques and comments welcome. WIP thread here.

      Sobek was a complex crocodile god of the ancient Egyptians. He was god of fertility, wild sexytimes and strength, and also a protector against the ravages of the river Nile and its inhabitants.
       
      The khopesh was a kind of ancient Egyptian sword evolved from a battle axe. The one on this sculpt is a little thicker and more swordlike than most of the ones I've seen, which makes it sturdier on a miniatures scale.
       
      The figure is Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, sculpt by Bob Ridolfi. I didn't make a WIP thread.
       
      I was halfway done with him before I realized that he was supposed to be a stone statue with cracks and chips in the stone. Maybe another time I will paint a version of him like that, but in this case I overlooked the texture and painted him with fairly realistic crocodile and corroded bronze colors.
       

       

       
      And because I like to play around with photography and backgrounds:

      This is 03415, Lanura Windsong, Elf Sorcerer, sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
       
      She's an appealing sculpt -- and popular, judging from all the painted versions in the store and the Inspiration Gallery. I picked her up years ago after seeing someone's lovely version on these forums, and now I've gotten round to her.
       
      She has high boots and a long coat and a cute scarf over short tousled curls. I think of her as a sort of corsair or pirate, maybe, with lots of wands and things. I am looking forward to painting all those spheres on her like colored crystal.
       
      I have been trying to limit the number of female minis I paint with bare midriffs, but she's just so dang cute!
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics, except where noted. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.



       
      I started laying in her skin tone with the darks pure Burnt Umber and the lights a golden-bronze mix of Burnt Umber, Yellow Ochre, and a little Titanium White. I also am spending some time on each pass tucking paint into all the tiny white dots where the paint failed to get into a nook or cranny.



       
      I don't normally paint much with pure black, but here I used some Carbon Black to color her hair and as a wash to lay in a few darker shadows on her and start to contour her face and eye sockets.


      Then I picked up some more highlights with the golden-bronze again, and a little more pure black shading.



       
      And then look, it's a face! Her sclerae are a pale grey mixed from Titanium White and a little Carbon Black. Her pupils are pure Carbon Black, highlights are pure Titanium White. Lips a base of Red Iron Oxide shaded with Burnt Umber and Quinacridone Magenta. Some more contouring with the bronze and Umber shadows and Bob's your uncle.
