Here's one from a few years ago. I painted here up way back when, and put her on a nicer base about six months ago. Pulled her out this evening to compare how the painting I did for that base had held up against a brand new similar one, and figured I might as well post her here too.
If you look close, you can see a little wear, but overall I'm really happy with how durable this paint has been.

This week I completed a tabletop paint job on Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Bedeviled" set. When looking at this figure there was something about it that looked more Sci-Fi than Fantasy to me. I don't know if it was the outfit, or the stance, or just the general demeanor of the figure; but to me it looked a bit more like a Star Trek alien than a fantasy world demon. So, I decided to go with that for my painting scheme.
I'm pleased with how the Sci-Fi look turned out on her. I think she looks like a good alien assassin, or perhaps some sort of exotic knife dancer.
As always, C & C welcome.
For the full painting article, please se my blog:
As previously explained in the WIP thread (here) this piece has been my stage for many firsts and learning experiments.
Firstly I tried to make a lava base for the first time and found out that I certainly could have gone with more texture to give the impression of flowing lava..
Then I tried to do some OSL, where light of the lava is reflected on the base where Tiviel stands.
Finally I tried to do NMM on he blades which eluded me and it kinda still does but I wowed to work on it on a more suitable blade in the near future.
So, as always your C&C are more than welcome so that I can get better and improve.
Thx in advance.
This is my first time in WIP area therefore I am rather excited
Secondly I will be trying many new stuff and therefore truly in terra incognita here
So, here goes nothing:
I started with the base since I want a lava base and I want the rocky surface I will place my mini to reflect light coming from the lava.
I chose Vallejo Black Lava for my lava surface but regretted afterwards since I want still molten lava not cooled off lava that is more suitable for Black Lava.. However this is all I have and my local store is out of stuff like white/grey pumice :(
But, I will try working with what I have and try to get a realistic look.
This is all I have for now. Your comments are eagerly awaited and will be appreciated immensely since I really dont know what I'm doing :)))
Here is bad boy Damien and his adventuring companions, all bones:

Sinessa (77119), here modified to be less evil looking, I will paint my second copy as the evil Sinessa.
They were a fun group to paint up
