Still taking a little break from my other projects, so I'm currently painting random Guild Ball minis, the latest being Farris, ex-knight and master blacksmith:-
Hopefully I got all the mold-lines, I did spot the one on her collar after taking these piccys.
Got her head painted.
Her face is a base of 1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin, Brown Shade Wash and then highlights of 1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin and 1:1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin/Light Skin.
And her hair is Leather Brown, shaded with Brown Wash and highlighted with 2:1 Leather Brown/Bonewhite.
Next job will likely be painting the underside of her horse (he has a name but I've forgotten it) black. I meant to do that first, but forgot

She's finished: Finari Mounted Show Off
The thing I like about WIP forums is the additional motivation it gives me to get projects done. I've been working on this one for a while and have been horrifically stalled. I was playing a fighter in a D&D campaign. She started as a crossbow wielder.
But because the party had no tank, she had to armour-up to survive. And she got a horse.
Then I sensibly figured that she should ride the horse... so a conversion began. But then of course the character got killed and motivation dropped to, well, zero. Here is the story of that conversion, as yet incomplete, but which I intend to finish. No longer will she sit on my shelf of shame.
I bought another Finari to desecrate convert. I also got this figure to provide the horse/lower torso. 14177: Onyx Chevalier,Overlords Solo
Torso severed preserving her belt. Sword was removed preserving the hilt and shield removed. It took me quite a while to decide where to cut and what to preserve.
All the parts fitted and laid out for assembly. After fitting them together I realized the sword on the saddle just wouldn't work so I removed it and made a new one out of greenstuff using the preserved hilt I removed in the first step.
Primed and base-coated. And moved from the shelf of shame to the front of the 'must complete' row.
I've just been rearranging my display shelves & have noticed that I actually have a few minis that I have never shown on these boards. They are the first ones that I painted a few years ago when I returned to the hobby after many, many years. I will show the others soon but to begin with, here's GW's Gandalf The White & Shadowfax.
The actual paint job is essentialy me getting back in the swing of things by copying the image on the miniatures' packaging, I made the base terrain(s) using air drying clay, gravel & sand & added some grass clumps to finish.

Back soon with something "big, ferocious & wingy" - thanks for looking!
