14575: Tierdeleira, Darkreach Priestess

Recommended Posts

Nice work. Her skin turned out quite pretty and goes quite well with the purple armor. The ice weapon looks great too. For me the yellow does create a disconnect. The yellow dominates the scheme for me and pushes the skin and armor into the background, and doesn't quite work with the blue icy feel. I think a cool neutral color may have worked better. However I am not great at picking colors and for me it's a lot of trial and error, so I feel your pain with figuring out the yellow.


Overall she looks great and will stand out on the table. Nice work

Thank you all! 


@Marsya - I was concerned the yellow might dominate the model too much, especially on the shield since its thrust forward at that one angle and on the helmet.  I have the Bones version of her somewhere as well and if I paint her again I will probably go with a blue-grey color like P3 underbelly blue.


@Erifnogard - Same here regarding taste, just ask my wife! :D


@Xherman - Wish I'd thought of using a brown wash, I think that would have helped, especially with the, er, thing on her helmet.

I commented to you on FB about how great of a job you did, but saying it again here. Fantastic!


The others covered most of the critiques I would've given you on the finished product too with the shading.

Very nice! And I generally agree with what others are saying (Great skin tones, cool ice-weapon, maybe a brown wash would improve the yellow, etc.) I'll also add that I like what you've done with the cloak, echoing the comic image.

      I had a metal mr. Grimm sitting around, so I figured better paint it before the bones version shows up. 
      So cold mr. Grimm

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      I know I haven't posted in a while, but I still check in daily on the friendliest mini-painting forum on the web!  Still lurking here while pursuing my obsession with OSL.
