Well I was not planing on starting any new miniatures until I finished the ones I am currently working on but I had an idea pop into my mind regarding this one. So here is the Eru Saga female wizard from ZombieSmith. I had this vision of a fun, colorfully dressed, young wizard playing on an old stone wall and the first picture is her on the base. The second is the color scheme I have in mind but I need help. I am not sure what color to do her top, any thoughts?

Are those Hirst arts ruined fieldstone bricks?

Yep, I had ordered a couple of castings last year but this is the first time I have used them.

 

Yellow!?! You guys are crazy but I am willing to give it a try, it will definetly be colorful. So here is the mock-up with the yellow. I am not sure about it with the teal and pink which are musts.

So I also tried a second with purple and a third with a darker blue cloak with a brighter blue top. I am leaning more towards the third one. To me it would make sense for her to have a darker cloak to cover up the bright colors if need be. Although I am planning on freehand in the teal and pink on the cloak.

Again, thoughts?

Well, I must be crazy too as I think I have talked myself into the yellow. Mainly by imagining a swirly freehand patter in teal, pink, and yellow on the cloak. I also played around with the color wheel on my iPad and it actually fits a harmonic with accent color scheme with the blue being the main color and yellow the accent. But I looks like it needs to more of a golden yellow then a lemon. It also brings in a creamy tan so I might use that for the leather or go darker to a brown. Got to love cool wheels.

The darker cloak (#3) makes the pink really stand out, but I would do a complimentary color for the top (just my personal opinion). A darker teal, or even a darker pink will show some "match" to the bottom, and not contrast too much. But then again, you will have a harder time making out the details without good black lining.

A darker, golden yellow vs. lemon yellow would be good to play with and see!

It seems like yellow is the way to go which will be interesting as I have not really done yellow before. I just finished one that was yellowish cream but I have not done anything that was just yellow. The funny thing about all of this is I just got in the HD Golden Yellow, it like fate. I will probably have her primed tonight and start laying down paint tomorrow out our paint group.

Taking my time with this one so hopefully I can get her and Joan done by the end of the month. The teal is almost done, just one strip on the arm left. Up next is the pink and I may do some freehand on the pink but I have not decided yet.

      So here's another from the last year.   I was unmotivated at first because the facial detail was a bit lacking but I like the way it turned out.

      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.

      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.
