Ever since I started working on my Frostgrave waterfront last year, I have thought that the Reaper "Dark Maiden" figure would make a cool addition to my Frostgrave figure collection; taking the roll of either a dockside Construct, or even a Wraith or Demon. I was lucky enough to pick one up in a Box of Goodwill a while back, and it's been lingering on my painting table until I built up the courage to tackle it. I finally decided with the River scenario from the Frostgrave Thaw of the Lich Lord supplement on our schedule for next month, that it was time to build up my courage and tackle this beautiful figure. In mulling over paint schemes, I decided that I wanted to do something like the grayish-brown of the masthead shown on the shipwreck of the Charlotte during the opening scenes of the movie "National Treasure." This seemed simple enough, just some brown and grey drybrushing over a dark base. The hard part was going to be that I wanted to make it look possessed, with glowing eyes and glowing swords; and Object Source Lighting (OSL) still is not a strong technique for me. In the end I'm really happy with how it turned out. While I wish it had turned out a little more aged grey, and less brown; I still think it looks properly demonic. :)
