    Baelor troll — what's this bit?

    Good idea, I don't know why I didn't think of side photos. Duh me. I'll do some soon.

    Foxtrot by Hasslefree Miniatures

    Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter. Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

    Baelor troll — what's this bit?

    Maybe he's got fish and is hunting chips? Oh wow, this is going to be interesting to paint...
  5. I bought a Black Troll by Baelor and, about 10 mins into basecoating it, I realised I can't work out what the outlined thing on his back is. Above and to the sides of it is hair and horns, but the outlined thing... is it some kind of armour? Or a hairnet? Does anyone have an idea? (Interestingly, I can find only two — TWO! — painted pics of this sculpt on Google, and that's two versions of the same photo...)

    Nice job!
  10. It took me ages to choose a colour scheme for the Valkeeri Leader. I eventually decided on Army Painter Shining Silver to go with the whole pulp scifi theme, and VGC Warlock Purple because why not. I was worried the silver bits of her uniform would look like armour instead of metallic cloth but I think it's turned out OK. For once I managed to get her eyes to a decent standard and her hair came out looking good too. Her gun is VMC Brass, toned down with VGC Sepia Wash and Liquitex matte varnish. Her lips are a tiny dab of VMC Brown Rose. I forgot about her cape until I was finished with her, so it got a few thin coats of Warlock Purple and then began the fun and games of gluing it to the figure. Four attempts later I got it in what I hope is the right position and touched up the purple.

    The purple and green works really well.

    Even in print — 100% black is dull compared to true black (100% CMYK)

    Devil Girl

    Thanks for not setting the lawyers on me :-) I regret not at least trying some OSL on this figure, as let's face it, if I'd messed it up then it would simply be a case of covering the mistakes with black, hardly the most complicated of jobs.

    Devil Girl

    I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line. The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).
