Amazing looking figure for a 4 hour paint job. At first I thought she was wearing red blush until I looked closer and realized it was OSL from her glowing eyes!

A quick commission for a D&D player - he wanted her to be a drow who died her hair blue.  Excluding drying time on the base, I managed to finish her off with only 4 hours of work!

 

 

 

What material did you use on the base? I love that grass.

 

ETA: Also that OSL from the eyes is subtle, and VERY cool. :)

Thanks! 

 

The base is all Citadel products (my LGS doesn't stock Reaper stuff aside from figures, unfortunately).  I used Citadel sand (any sand will do), washed it with the dark brown Agrax Earthshade from Citadel to make it look like soil, let it dry, and then brushed on some basing glue before adding Citadel's Scorched Grass (I use the tweezers from my swiss army knife to put patches of it where I want it, press it down a little, then turn it upside down and tap the bottom of the base to clear excess and force some of the blades to stand up).

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
