Ok ... so its been a few months since I've been on here. But i got tasked with doing a one shot campaign and a guy coning asked me to make a mini.... a tiefling... with a rapier... thats a warlock... (crap) and these were my marching orders for color... I like red a black but this just seemed like a blob waiting to happen... So i ended up with this... I basically decided to prime in grey and use dark wash to tint on the black instead of using paint.... as it seemed to be the only way to keep the color he wanted and have it be softer like the studded leather he is "wearing" instead or armor. I used gloss black for the eyes cause i like the effect if the light creating the "iris's that follow" you when the mininis turned. however being its d&d tieflings have tails and he wanted tail... its my first green stuff sculpt. Man that junk is sticky! i had water on it me table tools... stuck to everything anyway. So i'd like to know what you all think... i want to "highlight" the skin mainly cause he is serious about wanting clothes dark dark...Suggestions on black on black no contrast mini's? Oh and greenstuff tips would be great... like shoukd i wait longer than 30 mins to sculpt it? etc etc... Thanks!
I've recently started up a 4e campaign with some friends, and they've all nominated me as the guy in charge of miniatures. I'm happy with that, as I appear to be the only one who actually enjoys the hobby. So we all ordered suitable minis from Reaper, and I've been hard at work for a couple weeks in my spare time. I've got one left to do, and it's for a friend who's playing a tiefling rogue, loosely based on the "Bast" character from Rothfuss' "In the Name of the Wind." He's chosen the Eccardian Drovenge mini, which has an incredible amount of very fine detail on his armor. The example painted version in the listing for the mini is beautiful, but probably not going to work as a template, as the colours are much too bright for the "Dark and understated" vision that my friend has for his character. So my question is, given this restriction, what sort of palette would you choose for this character? He's asked for brick-red skin, and darker red horns, which I've done, but beyond that, I'm really not sure. His character recently stole a bloody cloak from a slain foe as a trophy, so that will likely be the flowing bit hanging from his belt in the back. Tips? Help! Here's the mini, for reference: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/eccardian%20drovenge/latest/60071
