Applied a GW Orange Wash and a GW Blue wash to the Macaw.

Highlighted with Scale 75 Tenere Yellow and Reaper MSP Ashen Blue.

Reapplied just a little of the washes.

Mixed a little Reaper MSP Palomino Gold with the Tenere Yellow for the feathers.

Applied the same to the yellow part of her outfit.

A little Scale 75 Toxic Green Waste for the forehead.


Took Scale 75 Flat Black to the scabbard.

Some Scale 75 Fuchsia to the inside of the lid of the chest.

Also did her make up and nailpolish with that.


For the green outfit I used Scale 75 Greenskin Flesh highlighted with Surfer

Orc Flesh.


Reaper MSP Palomina Gold for the trim of the pillows.

Scale 75 White Sands to the eehhh sand.. :blues:


Reaper MSP Tanned Highlight for her skin.

Scale 75 Fuchsia for the pillows.


Reaper MSP Intense Brown for the shoulder pads, belt and as a base for the metal armor on her boots.

Scale 75 Heavy Metal for studs and rims on shoulder pads and for the metal parts of the chest.

Then Scale 75 Dwarven Gold for the armor on the boots and the gold.

Scale 75 Black Forest Green for the feathers in her hair.

Seeing the pics, I will have to use stronger highlights on the green feathers, probably a wash for the sand.

I intend to do some water effects and try a little waves.


Maybe some highlights for the blue and green jewelry and I have to do one of her bracelets.


Ok, I've added the Vallejo Water Effects.


Still a gloopy white mess, but it will harden into a clear substance in 24 hours ( well that is what's supposed to do).


Made a litlle waves with a small spoon,


Now hoping it will turn out the way I want too and I can paint it..


That or mr. exacto knife will have loads of work.

So I'm calling her done.

Did some work with Reaper Surf Aqua and Vallejo White for the sea.

Applied a gloss varnish on jewels and gold.

She will now enter the contest and be in show off

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      This is the second miniature I've ever painted, and the first with Reaper paints. I figured that a brush holder would come in handy for the all the Bones V painting in my future! The only Reaper paints I own are the Bones V paints (Learn to Paint kit and the two collections), plus two bottles of Reaper MSP 9038 Rainy Gray.
      Overall I'm really pleased with the way this first attempt worked out! I primed everything with 9038 Rainy Gray, then put on the base coats. The wings and ears gave me the most trouble as I had generously overpainted with 9410 Dragon Green, and was attempting a wet blend with 09468 Brilliant Red and 09218 Lava Orange. They required seven or eight coats before I got solid coverage over the green. Once everything was painted and cleaned up, I did a dry brush highlight pass, and then sealed it with two coats of Rust-oleum Crystal Clear Enamel and one coat of Testors Dullcote. I waited 24 hours between each coat to give it plenty of time to dry. I also masked off the gold pile prior to the Dullcote to make sure it would stay shiny.
      Some things that could have been better:
      The eyes should have been a different color to make them pop, instead of disappearing in the face. Additionally the right eye is quite muddy and the pupil gets lost amidst all the black veins. I was getting tired of working on Rocky at this point and wanted to get it finished. Ideally the eye would have been repainted. The left eye is better, but still gets lost in all the green. I forgot that my wash darkens the mini, and didn't paint in brighter colors to compensate, which means overall it's quite muted and dark.
