Glitterwolf 03567: Familiar Pack X, FREEBOOTER VAMPIRE, SERVANT

Recommended Posts

Here is the Vampire Queen herself.

She has a Magic Sword guarded by her Crow familiar.

Her faithful undead servant lights the way.

 

I tried a bit of OSL on the servant, my first try.

I don't think it worked out that well, but you gotta try right?

 

The familiar and sword are from Reaper, pack X.

The Vampire and Servant are from the Freebooter range, sculpted by Werner Klocke.

 

Sorry about the quality of some pics, still struggling with the camera.

I'm pretty far from what you'd call an expert on OSL (never tried it, so good on you!), but I think it looks pretty good for a first try.

You can clearly see it's the light from the candle, so it's a success in my book. My last attempt at OSL sits on my shelf. I did not dare to post it. It was that bad. 

They could use a thin wash/light drybrush for some detail, though. :) 

 

The thick paints on the servant makes it look like he's splattered the candle wax all over himself. It's a quite nice effect. I like it.

      This little guy was a freebie from Bombshell Miniatures given out at Reapercon 2019. He is also available on their website.  I put him on a jungle base from Microarts.  Tried for some dark blue/grey coloration, wasn't happy with it, tried some green washes, but he kept turning blue again. Brushed a little green metallic on and he turned silver, did the green wash again with a different brand.  Decided I had messed around with it long enough. 
       
      In the background is a 3-d printed stone bridge my husband made for me. Tabletop drybrush in shades of brown over a black base coat.

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

      For the last few months since Reapercon, I've been focusing on pumping out minis to avoid the rut I got into last year. When I saw that Reaper had released the ghost sailors as metal figures, well... I knew what one of my October projects was going to be. I loved these guys as part of the Bones IV kickstarter, but I've not enjoyed painting plastic minis as much since getting back into metals at the Reapercon melt table, so I was psyched to order them and put in an order that night... Most of the rest I had from Reapercon, although I think I picked up Labella there too.
       
      Either way, these guys painted up gorgeous and easy using my go-to one-two spirit technique! As a firm believer in spooky blue ghosts, I started by priming them white, then giving them a couple layers of Irrisen Blue from the new Pathfinder paintset... My old blue standby was from the HD line and the bottle has faded to the point of illegibility, but it was almost identical. Then once it's dry, I drybrush heavily with Linen White (pure white comes out looking starched, and bluer whites don't show on the blue, but linen is perfect) and... call it a day. Decorate the bases, maybe some pizza... 's good. That said, minis painted using this technique meet my #1 requirement for ghost minis: They're distinctive on the table!
       
      I debated doing some OSL, but decided that it would wash the bases out, unfortunately. I like it better this way, with the bases nice and grounded, and the ghosts spooky and glowing! Lots of fun base details on these, too - 10/10 recommend picking them up if you have any sort of use for them!

      This one of the results from the Bones Conversion class at Reapercon 2019.  I used the grave marker off the end of the weapon wielded by the colossal skeleton, carved a bit and repositioned.  The fairy is party of the familiar pack.   Fairly simple mash-up, but makes a nice seasonal piece for display.

      While running the 5e Princes of the Apocalypse campaign for my group, the adventurers had come upon a mad Druid-cum-Cultist at the top of his tower. His name was Elizar Dryflagon, and he'd become obsessed with the power of fire. I wanted to have something fun prepared for this battle, and when I found Aaron while looking through my unpainted stuff, I thought that he would be a perfect surrogate! A bit of OSL seemed an obvious choice due to the flames, but I didn't want to go overboard with it. In the end, the group ended up demolishing him and his summoned Smoke Mephits alike! Tough his appearance may have been short-lived, it was sure memorable!
