Glacia The Winter Witch Bombshell minis 10052

Recommended Posts

So I have decided to try and paint a mini from all of the new (To me anyways) companies I have been discovering through Kickstarter or being (grumble) enabled...

 

Since Her Darkness is almost done, I decided to assemble and prime up a Bombshell mini from the last Kickstarter, and since I am currently playing in the Pathfinder campaign 'Reign of Winter', the choice was pretty easy as to which one....

 

so Here she is!

I am thinking light greys, teal, and blues.... 

Thoughts?

 

I am thinking some sort of sea shore base....

And so the painting has begun.....

 

Eyes are my normal GW Scorched Brown, MSP Linen White, with a GW Scaley Green pupil this time

Pink Flesh for the skin...

GW Scaley Green for her robes, and Bering Blue for her cloak

I have been debating mixing some Vallejo Metal Medium into the cloak colors, and then doing the edging in non metallic colors...

Any thoughts on this idea?

 

As always, Comments and Critiques Welcome!

Some more Bering Blue on the cloak...

I am trying an experiment...

I mixed some Vallejo Metal Medium into the Deep Blue forthe whatever they are called...Streamers, and the neck of her cloak.

I want it to kindo of shimmer, not look flat out metallic....

We will see how it goes...

I would never have thought to use a metal medium on cloth, looks good.

 

Curious to see how this works out, I want to paint a 70's style disco glittery shirt on a mini one day...you might have just showed me how to do that.

Nice colors. 

 

I notice some debris in your paint on her left side (staff side).  Some spots on the leg above the knee and on both inner surfaces of the cloak.  Might want to clean that up and repaint before you get any farther along.

So she is bathing with Garrick the Bold....

 

Metal of course... and it's purely platonic...

Moar Paint!

 

Her 'streamers?' that go with the high neck of her cloak got done with Deep Blue, mixed with a touch of Vallejo Metal Medium. The effect I want to achieve is of a silk or satin with this, not a metallic sheen...

We will see...

 

Her leg armor and the tassets on her hips, as well as the 'belt buckle?' were done with F&G Huldra Blue, and her tabbard with F&G Miskatonic Grey.

I would like to do her hair as a Platinum Blonde, anyone have a recipe for me? Didn't see one in the Painting Tips threads....

 

Trying to stay with a 'cold' palette for this winter wytch....

 

Thanks for looking!

Platinum Blonde?

 

I would go with the Reaper Blond Hair Triad, but then start with the mid tone, then the highlight and final highlight mix it with a pure white?

 

or maybe Scale 75 Sol Yellow and then start mixing it with Pure White?

I agree. I've done platinum hair exactly that way, and it's come out pretty good. It can be tricky to mix the highlight, but knarthex, I think you've got the painting chops to make it work. :)

      This is the second of my dropfleet starter sets.  The fleet represents the United Colonies of Man (UCM).  After humanity was chased off the planet earth and forced to scatter to its colonies to lick their wounds, the colonies united and formed an armada to take back the home planet.  These ships are the final gasp of mankind to keep from becoming nests for a truly invasive species.  the game itself is a little different from Most because battles are fought in nearspace around planets.  The map is a planet viewed from low earth orbit  and the ships can move from high to middle and low orbits, each having an effect on the ship speed and who can attack what.  The game itself is pretty fast, a starter fleet battle will resolve in about an hour for us on the rare occasions when i get to play and the sides are pretty evenly matched although they have very different play styles.  TTcombat took over the license this year and saved the game from fading away and have put quite a bit of effort into new miniatures and rewriting the rules to fix problems and make the dropfleet game compatible with its companion game Dropzone.  now you can run a companion game allowing the two games to interact on a limited basis which, i think adds a lot to both sides, if you can find that many players...
       
      I decided to takes some liberties with these vessels.  i wanted each ship to be distinctive and easy to spot on the game board so the grid pattern built into the armor of the ship, which is usually blacked out, i lined in white and then traced over with various florescent colors from Scale 75.  The effect was not quite what I was after but it's still pretty good and certainly usable on the field of battle.  The ships are a starter set of 3 crusiers (2 heavy 1 light) and 4 frigates.  The base color is black with a midnight blue ghost tint and then highlighted with white and flouresents
       
      Hope you enjoy them!  I certainly enjoyed painting them!

      Time to get the year started with a little space adventure!  It took me about a week of spare time to get this fleet assembled and painted.  Space ships are one of the few miniatures i find where less is more and although they look intensely detailed, there really isnt that much to work with.
       
      This is an enjoyable game that I wish i had the opportunity to play more often but, time being what it is, i am limited in what i am willing to teach people to do and I get tired of always having to explain the rules.  Anyway, the Scourge are a bunch of nasty alien body snatchers who have invaded earth, forcing the remanents of humanity to go hide in the colony worlds to rebuild for the re-invasion of earth.  They also have some of the coolest ships!  These were done mainly with airbrush work except for some of the lights and engine fire.  I started with the badger metal colored primer and then sprayed the front with plasma fluid ghost tint and the back with blue ghost tint winding up with a really wonderful color shift across the minis.  The last piece is a leftover Aquan dreadnought from a game called Firestorm Armada I used a slightly different color profile so it would blend with both this game and the original firestorm fleet (okay i have a soft spot for spaceships.  I just wish the games would play half as cool as they look!)  This is basically a starter fleet consisting of three versions of the Cruiser class and 4 Frigates.  That and as I said, the dreadnought for good measure!
       
      Thanks for looking!
