Last year/this spring I painted up a force for myself based on the kingdom of Dalend in my role-playing setting of Iskitaan. When I went to use that force recently for a game of Song of Blades and Heroes, I realized I had no mages. This, of course, required a shopping trip to the Reaper website, where I picked out these two: So why is this in the sculpting section? Well, that's because I've got a "simple" conversion planned, and I'm hoping to get the thoughts on the best way to go about it from a couple of the pros around here. The theme of my Dalend force is that they all have capes and shields, like these two: While these mages have capes, they don't have shields upon which to put the tower symbol. So I am going to incorporate the tower by sculpting it in 3d on the top of each staff. So here is how I think I'm going to do them, unless someone has a better idea/sees problems/has advice on various steps: - start with a plastic rod or tube - use my drill as make shift lathe to rough in the shape of the tower - cover it with a thin layer of ProCreate and smooth it out - press/carve the stone work into the putty - let cure, then drill a hole (if I didn't use a tube) into the bottom of the towers and glue them to the top of the staff.
Joeliyn the Blade Sister SKU 14604 I actually finished painting this mini nearly a month ago, but am just now posting it. Overall Iâ€™m happy with the results although Iâ€™m still working on figuring out how to shade the hair and face. Originally I painted the hair black to shade the blonde over it, but the dry brushing didnâ€™t work too well. Its hard to see but I used two colors for the blonde. I used two colors of silver for the armor too. Painting that half eye was surprisingly difficult, much more so than the full eye, I had to try several times. Iâ€™m experimenting with the lighting to try to get the colors to show up better in the pictures. I added trimming and lapel pins to the red cloak to try to make it less plain. Hope you like the paint scheme!
