Finally back. Feels like forever since I posted anything up here. So this is what I have been up to the last couple of days.

I started with blocking in the main colors and making sure that the red and black switched placement on miniature at the right times. I am not thrilled with what I've done with the face, so I'll probably fix that soon if it drives me crazy enough. For the accents I'm planing on a golden yellow color.

 

[C&C always welcome.

Facepaint is a difficult one to deal with. If her neck can be seen, make sure to do it in a regular fleshtone otherwise it will look like she just has white skin.

 

As for how to shade the facepaint, google image search for "Harley Quinn Cosplay" is your friend. The shadows tend towards a blueish grey, but the skintone does still come through a little on larger areas like the forehead and cheeks. Avoid a clean white.

So here is a quick update of today's progress.

Re-worked her face some to varying degrees of success. I think the lips look a bit better but I can't seem to get the mask the way I want it. The fleshtone was restarted building from tanned highlight to white. It is not super white like the picture shows but probably too white overall.

 

Most of the accents are started. Unfortunately my new gold and antique gold droppers are both clogged up, so I used some old citadel gold for the buckle and the latches on her jacket. They definetly need to be toned down as they are very shiny at the moment.

As always C&C welcome. I think I'm on the right track, but if there is anything I need to fix that I may not have seen that would help a ton.

 

Sorry for the phone pics. I seem to have misplaced my camera charger.

Thanks. I thought that might be an issue for the tie. I just wanted to do something other than red or black and I thought the purple would stand out a bit and make her white face pop more.

If you're using gold as your accent, I would go with that (maybe in a diamond pattern?).

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
