Thanks! Somehow my post went through without some of my text - that chain is from a broken necklace that made its way into my bits box. It was just the right length to fill the distance between the integrated base and the lip of the round base I mounted the mini on. I thought it added a little extra steampunk flavor!

She's almost as cute as my wife. ;)


This is a well done mini. I love the color selection, you did an excellent job on the red hair, I thought. The purple pants and green coat are a surprisingly good combo. I also like how your saturation (that is, how intense each color is) is constant throughout.


The picture makes the highlights look chalky, but it looks fantastic in person, even close up.


Now how to get her and Last Knight's Lauren Silversail in the same game....

I'm so glad you like her, DispatchDave! Thanks for the compliments. The color scheme is similar to that on a PC I'm currently finishing up for one of the newest players in our D&D group, and I though it would work well for Sascha, too. I'm not terribly surprised the paints turned out a little chalky in the pictures - these particular colors used some paints that haven't aged well, and they've gotten surprisingly temperamental. I fought with the paint consistency quite a bit on the palette, but I'm quite happy with the end result - and I'm glad you are, too!


Dai-Mongar, she's a blast to paint, I highly recommend her. Sanael painted one last year, and I was delighted that we got another copy in the Vampire box of Bones so I could have a turn at painting her as well. The chain base is super easy to do, except for that last link. To make it look a little more like a continuous chain, I split a link in half. After the rest of the chain was glued down to the base, I added that link to close up the gap. It looked a little too bright compared to the rest of the model as-is, so I gave it a couple of coats of matte sealer, then did some washes to bring out the chain detail and mute the natural metallic sheen a bit. Have fun with it!

      Because of all the lockdowns I got a lot of painting done last year. This year, not so much. It's hard for me to see my brush skills vanish into nothing, and my projects keep dragging on for ever when I have only one or two days a month for painting.
      But enough complaining!
      I did get a few hours in and to take a break from my current projects I painted up this little diver. He's paying hommage to a diving spot in Italy that I really like. Nothing but sand and sea cucumbers (that's what the brown things on the base are supposed to be, thank you very much!😊). But crystal clear turquoise waters - shown here by the unconventional colour of the rim. For a more "underwatery" feel I glazed on a final filter of Surf Aqua. Note to self: Next time, use a paint with a little less white pigment for that effect!
      Anyway, here he is, enjoy! C&c very welcome.
      And remember: Sea cucumbers! Those brown things are sea cucumbers!

      Not sure what her real name is, but she's the space princess from the bones 5 chronoscope pack.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.
