This was created at Reapercon 2018 at the bones conversion class.
removed the rider and the saddle, added the mystery wings.
it went through 2 rounds of greenstuffing and re-texturing.
only to end up here. painted between Christmas and New years.
I still have issues with the wings, which a mostly drybrushed. Ah well.
Sometimes when I imagine the mechanics of monster summoning, it's kind of like Uber or Lyft. You select a particular summoning option, and someone picks up the call without really knowing what the mission will be.
Anyway, we needed an angel. Our prayers were answered, but apparently this one was on the way to the Celestial Daycare, or maybe had just completed another summoning gig involving orphans when she showed up for this gig. I can imagine any number of ways this could have gone.
But in any case, this one arrived with a baby, and without a nose. She fight off our enemies with only one hand and without any olfactory senses. It was truly impressive!
On the Monday evening after ReaperCon, Joseph Wolf (ReaperWolf, author of the Dreadmere setting and the faction adventures at the convention) ran a role-playing adventure for the painters and sculptors still present at Reaper HQ -- 10 of us.*
Before we could play, each of us had to choose a figure for our character and paint it in about 2 hours.
I chose this figure, Bobby Jackson's "slug hunter". (Imagine his bottle to be a salt shaker, and he's sprinkling salt with his left hand.) My character was a rogue with a magical bottle.
I did most of the painting in a monochrome brown gradient (Brown Liner, Woodstain Brown, Driftwood Brown, Creamy Ivory), but added Aged Bone on the boots and base and dagger, and then Light Blue and Mint Green and some other blues and greens on various areas. I also glazed some pink (Rosy Skin, maybe?) on his face and hands.
Back at home last weekend, I spent a couple of hours smoothing and glazing and doing touchups. I also trimmed off and touched up a few mold-lines that I hadn't noticed.
(The game was a lot of fun. We had a group mission but chose individually whether we were going to help or hinder it, and the eventual infighting and scheming led to amusing hijinks.)
* Around the table: me, Chris Lewis, Julie Guthrie, Bob Ridolfi, Angela Imrie, Michael Proctor, Bobby Jackson, Tim Hill, Gene Van Horne, and Jason Wiebe.
