Finally finished this guy!

He was stalled by a lack of paints that I needed, but they came in yesterday, and I got busy!

Would have liked to do better with the feathers, but after the third re-try, I left well enough alone.

My wife calls him a Skexie...

The SC75 metals were awesome for his pauldron, and other pieces, and did well for all his clothes...


Base is pretty simple, a few Silflor tufts of 'dead' grass, some fine Gray Ballast, and some Fine Turf earth tone to go around the rocks, skulls, and bones...


Comments welcome!

Very nice work! The flesh of his body's truly icky, and I rather like the bright wings.


I really like how the vulture bare skin turned out.


If you mean the head / neck skin, it is GW flesh paints layered form dark to light.

Tanned Flesh, Dwarf Flesh, Bronzed Flesh, and Elf Flesh.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hard to go wrong with sexy female demons, but this one was a devil in more than one sense of the word from start to finish.  Despite being cast in metal she is pretty fragile. The trident broke off and for years she sat in my box of unpainted figs, until one day I found the little pointy bit.  Her tail, likewise, kept bending and i was sure I'd lose that too. 
      Did her skin with the Bright Skin triad, because that's been waiting patiently for years as well.  Her face is a mess, but overall she came out ok.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...

      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      Having recently joined the airbrush crowd, I'm discovering how much i love blasting paint through it.  Saving so so so so much time on my zenithal priming groups of minis.  
      Now that I've got the priming and ink through it, I'm curious about another medium going through - varnish. 
      I own satin and gloss varnish from liquitex. I've used them as brush on, which isn't my favorite.  I want to know: 
      1.  Has anyone used this in an airbrush? 
      2.  If yes, how did you thin it?  Did you use airbrush thinner or something else? 
      3.  Does it require different means to clean after using? 
      I'm super paranoid about clogging or ruining this new tool of mine.  I found out Stynylrez primer wasn't just pour in and go.  Made for a fun clean up with my first go at priming.  
      There's a ton of stuff I'm seeing on testors dullcote from the bottle and mixing it with their thinner, but I'm hoping to use what i have if it's possible.  
      I'm not asking what you use as much as I'm seeking specifically "has anyone used liquitex varnish in their airbrush? "
      And... any pictures of your results?

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.
