Sandru Vhiski - Swashbuckler bard

Recommended Posts

Alright!  Now I am working on Sandru Vhiski. We'll be using him for the swashbuckler/bard in our DragonLance campaign.  I simply ADORE Martin Jones' paint job of him, so I am going to more-or-less be copying it (although not half as well!).

1. Primed!

2. Base colours blocked out with some of the details, etc.  I got interrupted tonight, or I would have got a bit more done.  Next up is some touch ups, followed by shading and highlighting.  And yes, if you look closely you can see chest hair.  ;)

 

Current soundtrack is Little Boots.

Yeah, it's such a fun mini.  I had been eyeing him on the website for a while.  I was really excited when I finally convinced my fellow player to let me paint him for his character.  :)    PS - I love the hat addition!

After seeing Kuro's version of him I immediately purchased him. He's in the pipeline for me to paint up as well, just have a few other projects that worked their way ahead of him, but maybe now that I see another person doing him up I'll add him into the mix tonight and block some colors in or something.

Howdy - I've been sick, and then somehow manage to injure my wrist (not badly - but enough to keep me from painting).  I hope I can get back to this guy over the weekend!  I hate leaving minis sitting half-done!

Hey hey!  I finally finished painting him!  I forgot to take in-progress pics though, sorry about that.  So, here he is!  I'll do glamour shots after I base him properly later.  Too bad you can really only see the chest hair and nose stud with a magnifying glass. *sigh* One of the downsides of painting such small things!

He looks great!  Every time I see someone paint this sculpt I like it more, I'm going to have to put him on my wish list. 

 

Don't forget to post another picture when he's 100% done!

He's moving up on my to-do list that's for sure!

      On Wednesdays I’ve been playing in Storm King’s Thunder at my FLGS, and since I have lots of minis, I’ve basically been providing the minis for the game, including for my fellow players. However, in spite of how expansive my collection is, I don’t always have a perfect match… sometimes not even close to a good match.
       
      This was the case for the party’s human warlock and bard. For the warlock, I was using an elven bladesinger, and the bard was a female elven bard, both from the Chainmail line. It was not a good fit for the rogue-like warlock, and my utter and total lack of male bards of any type was frankly astonishing.
       
      The monk was okay (also from the chainmail line), but as an asamar, the skin was wrong, and the colors of everything else was off too.
       
      So with my most recent order I selected some new minis.
      14544: Ian, Ivy Crown Mage for the warlock
      02500: Fergus the Weaver for the bard
       
      After washing them and taking care of a bit of flash and moldlines (very minor in both cases) I mixed up some greenstuff and pressed out new bases to match the bases I’ve made for the rest of the party’s minis from the Ruined Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku. Once the greenstuff was cured I spray primed them black, and then got to painting.
       

       
      I’m still blocking in colors, and checking with my fellow players to make sure they match what they picture in their minds. I used Tanned Flesh for the warlock and and bard’s skin, and NMM Gold for the monk’s skin. Beyond that I’m not really sure what to do for the monk… Waiting on feedback.
       

       
      For the warlock, I’m painting the tunic in blue, and I’m thinking about trying to give the impression of raven’s feathers for the mantle. The yellow accents will give a nice contrast to the otherwise black/blue/purple colors that’ll make up his pallet.
       
      The bard I’m less clear on how to paint him up. So far I’m going with a bright red tunic with some yellow/gold trim. We’ll see what feedback I get from the player going forward.
       
      More to come!

      89012: Lem, Iconic Bard sculpted by Derek Schubert.  This guy was supposed to be a speed paint, but I got too interested in putting diamond patterns on his clothes.

      Howdy,
       
       This turned out to be a rough sculpt...
       

       
      Kev!
      P.S. Sing it baby!
