A friend of mine from California is a player in my RPG group. Comes into town about once a month...she loved the looks of this figure and asked me to paint it up as her adventure character (but not as a vampire). This is the commission piece that I painted for her. This is a playing piece (only when the player is in town to play).

Love the horse on the shield. Not overly keen on the lips. She looks like she's been to a bad plastic surgeon I fear.

If I may be so bold as to offer up a reason here:

I think the big lips are a result of trying to hide an open mouth that shows off the natural toothiness of being a vampire.

I can easily see my wife wanting this mini for one of her characters, so I'm going to ask now, does anyone have an alternate plan to getting rid of her fangs?

Your comment is absolutely correct. She did not want a "vampire" but a well built/skimpy outfit female fighter. I pondered the problem (thought about trying to cut the fangs out) but decided that such an action would cause problems that I did not want to face. So I went with the very full lips to cover the fangs. The lady was very satisfied with the end results.

Very nice, is the horse freehand or is it some kind of sticker/stencil? Very nice and small detail on it!

I can not tell a lie. The horse was a rub-on dry transfer from a coat-of-arms sheet that I got some years back.

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      I would like to try airbrushing different sets of skin tones onto multiple copies (5+)  of the same female figure as practice and as a reference for other models. Anyone recommend a Bones fig that is large enough to have quite a bit of exposed skin, but cheap enough that lots of copies wouldn't set me back too much. Yaphima (sure I spelled it wrong) the Frost giant comes to mind first, but looking for other options

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!
