Sometimes you need to see a miniature in person to appreciate it. This is one that would come up on the site and I’d scroll right past without a second thought, but I saw him hanging on the rack at the FLGS and was immediately smitten. Figure was prepped and primed as my previous show off thread went up, and was painted pretty quickly over the course of a couple evenings. Apologies for the picture quality (yet again), here is Alfred Redlute: The sculpt holds up pretty well, despite its age (S. Garrity 97 is engraved on the rear of the base). Minor flash and a small but noticeable pit on the lute’s fretboard, but no real mold line issues. Paint wise, nothing really fancy going on. Tunic is Templar Blue and it’s associated triad with Palomino Gold around the bottom and cuffs. Found some GW shades along with the mini, so the yellows and browns got a dose of Nuln Oil. His lute is red for the obvious reason. Sadly, some of the paint on the lute’s strings came off when sealer was applied. I believe the problem was the old brush I used being too stiff and rough. I fixed the damage best I could, but it’s nowhere near as nice as before. Al’s pantaloons are Dark Elf Highlight mixed with some Linen White. Turns out that triad is good for more than just drow skin! The base is meant to represent grass, as that was evidently the original intention of broccoli bases, so I painted it green. With MSP Grass Green. Because my imagination refuses to be bridled. All in all, not terrible for the time and effort, for me at least. Though I do regret the last glaze which made the blue highlights very hard to see. But I was too scared to try again, and they aren’t completely gone, so something to work on next time. As always, comments and critiques are welcome!
Finally finished Gendrick. He took me about 8-9 hours total, mostly cause I just kept fiddling with the little bits, so I call him a "semi-speed paint" and call him good at a bit above tabletop standard. He was done for one of my 5E players who loves to rock out on the lute. I added a crossbow to his base and a small quiver of bolts to his back. Manuafacturer: Reaper (SKU# 03485 - Alfred Redlute) Material: Pewter Sculptor: Bob Ridolfi WIP Thread As always, C&C are greatly appreciated and welcomed! Thanks for looking. â€‹Gendrick the bard dropped his crossbow and started to strum a valiant tune on his red lute when his friends got into a tavern brawl, he inspired them to victory!
Getting started on this guy with a bit of a conversion/addition. This is Reaper Figure Alfred Redlute (SKU# 03485) which I'm painting up (speed paint table-top quality) for our bard named Gendrick. This guy looks a LOT like Steven Tyler from Aerosmith! Anyhow got the information tonight on what colors he wants used and he's all primed up and ready to go. Colors will be: Hair - Dark Brown Eyes - Dark Brown Skin - Slightly Tanned Tunic - Browns Shirt - Green Pants - Dark Green with light green stripes Boots - Black Leather Lute - Reds with Gold trim The crossbow will be attached to his back, so that has been primed up as well and pinned so that I can paint it up and then I'll attach after everything is painted. No plans for the basing yet, but it'll probably be something simple like an inn wood floor as he travels around and plays for his food/drink/lodging.
