IT BEGINS

 

Now, obviously you know what the winning colors are. But the roulettes? Even I don't know until that step is reached. She could turn out to be lovely . . . or an abomination we must destroy with fire* !

 

 

 

*(mini will not be destroyed with fire - hyperbole, man, dig it)

 

So the hair was voted Red, and I mean RED. So the base for this is my trusty Aged Red Brick, as seen on TV. Well, not TV. But a monitor is kind of a TV.

Righty-o! Well, let's darken that Liche Purple with some Purple Steel and put it on there! And how does our Technicolor Dreamgirl look?

Why, it's none other than Stace Windu, jedi robotic consort to the nefarious General Grievous! She'll give those Jedi scum something to think about, oh yes! She'll beat them purple, she will. Beat 'em til they speak binary.

She looks special. Especially good.

 

 

Edit: I just painted a warlock/rogue player in one of my games with a purple sword. I made it all swirly crystal magic, with purple as the base coat, and lime green for the shadows. It look like it's made out of pure evil magic. So, you can rock a purple sword.

So far she still has at least the potential to look ok.

 

I do, however, rather suspect this will change as we accumulate colors. Or maybe not. I just don't know.

 

But I do know that, horrid paint scheme or not, she's going up on CMON for votes. I wonder if we'll make anybody cry?

 

(mind you, if I really wanted to troll I'd stick her up on frothers) :-p

I had a surprise visit from my painting partner (He doesn't have dedicated hobby space, so I lease him a desk for free coffee) and that gave me some time to get cracking and update some of my WIPs.

 

Ok, so the hilt and armor main color were color roulettes. The hilt came up Reaper PP Rust, and the Armor Reaper PP Slate. Here are the darkened basecoats.

 

Still not sure if she's on the road to looking good or looking hideous.
