This pretty lady jumped straight to the front of my painting queue, and it was about time I painted another Reaper mini:-




Here she is, all cleaned up and undercoated in primer.


Got a little further today:-




Not going down the red skin route, so Ziba is currently covered in a basecoat of 1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Wash.


Aiming to get her skin finished tonight.

And once more, I love her skin! Keep it up (Try some more blending on her skirt!)


I will try, I've been practising on another mini.



Haven't been able to paint much lately, but I did work on her face:-




Her skin was finished with highlights of 1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin, 1:2:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin and 1:2:3 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin, she got lips (1:2:3:3 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Bloody Red with some Flesh Wash), fangs (Iraqi Sand) and eyes (despite my best efforts, they ended up very cat-like).


Gotta get the rest of her skin done now.

What undercoat primer did you use? It really helps to pop those highlights & shaded areas. 


It's just Vallejo White Primer with an Agrax Earthshade Wash.







Still don't feel like working on her skin, so she got hair instead.

Kept it simple, so it's a basecoat of 1:2 Red Leather/Ochre Yellow, highlighted with pure Ochre Yellow and then given a Sepia Wash all over, with a Brown Wash in the deepest recesses and underneath parts.


Not sure what part I'll work on next.

Thanks guys!



Finally made a bit of progress:-




She got horns (Night Blue > 1:1 Night Blue/Ghost Grey > Black Wash) and a shoulder-pad (Scarlett Red > Black Wash > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire > 1:1:1 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire/Pale Yellow > 1:1:2 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire/Pale Yellow with a Sky Blue eye and Iraqi Sand teeth), I think I may need to knock back those shoulder-pad highlights a bit.


And since I hade some left over, I basecoated her dress in Hexed Lichen.

And more progress:-




Finished off her skin on her right shoulder, boobs, left arm and hand.

Basecoated some of her decorations and armour trims in Bronze with a Brown Wash, did some scales in Magic Blue with a Black Wash and one sword blade in Oily Steel with a Black Wash.


Next will be finishing off those areas and moving on to the next.


No, I do not understand why I'm painting random areas.

The eyes are amazing!  You always manage to make the eyes pop so well.


I also love her hair.  So simple but lots of depth.


I really struggle with eyes and hair so I am always impressed with you work.

      Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

      The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

      For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

      The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

      Tips? What do I paint next from bones 4?

    • By boldfont
      I don’t have the lot number yet. Also, this is my first post so guidance on posting conventions is welcome. 
      The Bones 4 haul was extraordinary!
      Edit: sized down. I’ll figure out how to get down to 150 kB later.
