Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard (Bones)

Recommended Posts

Love the color contrast between the off white and magenta (???)  What did you use?

The purpley color is P3 Sanguine base highlighted with Sanguine Highlight, highlighted again with Sanguine Highlight mixed with Mennoth White, then a bit of Mennoth white for highest highlight and then a light wash of watered down Sanguine Highlight to blend it. For the shadows I mixed Sanguine Base, Cryx Bane Base and a dab of Thagmar Black. The picture shows it slightly more pinkish than it actually is.


The offwhitish, light tannish is Hammerfell Khaki with a light wash of Bootstrap Leather. I used a more concentrated Bootstrap Leather for the shadows with the deepest shadow being Umbral Umber. I highlighted with Jack Bone, then Mennoth White Base then Mennoth White.

Very nicely done! I like the colors used for this piece, gives a great atmosphere to it.


Are you going to do anything for basing?

Probably not. He is just for playing with. I just did a dirty grey for the broccoli as he spends most of his time in a city. If I had thought about it sooner, I would have cut off the base and put him on one of my wooden floorboard bases. At this point, I think it would be more trouble and might mess him up trying to cut him off at this point.


He looks great if that's your quick paint I am very impressed

As I said, quick for me. I probably spent 6-8 hours on him over 2 days instead of fiddling with him for a week. And thank you!

      Here she is - she is an NPC in my campaign... friend or foe? Tried a darker skin but not sure I quite got it. Well, I was pleased even if her eyebrows are a bit odd.

      Alright.  So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years.  An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?

      More Below Spoiler:
      I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted.  I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
      That said, I love painting similar things.  It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.

      I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!

      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.

      For the RCL Zodiac Challenge  - the Taurus not one of the more creative choices like Libra or Aquarius. 
      It is my Adopted Star sign because if Horoscopes are at all useful it is when they make guesses at problems or opportunities based on the personality connected to the sign. 
      by personality I fit  like 3 of 4  tendencies, and 0 of 4 of my birth sign. 
      knocked this guy out in a few hours this morning.

      My kid loves stealing my dice.
      So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet.
      Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
