Westwind Minatures - EotD Victorian Lady

Recommended Posts

Here is another of the ongoing set of Victorian characters for Empire of the Dead by Westwind Minatures.

This has been painted to a good tabletop standard. I have forced myself to speed up a bit as I need to get more finshed for a game.




As always comments welcome.

The green has a nice depth that's reminiscent of velvet - like Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'hara wearing the dress made from the drapes.  Which reminded me of Carol Burnett doing the same thing more memorably.  It's best to keep two hands on a pepperbox - they had a nasty habit of occasionally firing more than one cylinder (chain firing).

      It's a quiet morning. Mrs McCarthy sweeps the church vestibule.  (77088: Townsfolk: Grandmother)

      Lady Frances and Lady Rebecca admire the new flower beds in the church garden. (59009: Mad Scientist and 50327: Victorian Ladies)

      It's a beautiful day, what could possibly go wrong?

      The blue dress was inspired by this painting:

      My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing.

      For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:

      With the headband and knife I figured this guy was Rambo's ancestor. (Rambo 7, the prequel: Pilgrims vs Werewolves, coming soon...)

      When you're only paid per heretic hung, you're probably going to be somewhat proactive in your duties. What a work ethic!

      Apparently I never started a WIP thread for this miniature. This is Reaper's 50304: Rowena Von Graaf, sculpted by Julie Guthrie, which I started painting a long time ago. She's a fun steampunk figure.
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.


      I decided to paint her with a pretty black face.


      Here's a close-up of her face. There are tiny white points which are microscopic unpainted pits in the figure. They are much smaller irl than they show up in the photographs. I am slowly (maddeningly) working to fill them in as I go.

      I decided to paint her underskirt pink. This is Quinacridone Magenta lightened with Titanium White.

      And the base coat on her dress and spats is straight Red Oxide.


      And this is where I left her (cough) about a year and a half ago. More to come!
