I like what you're doing.


I have painted her too a while ago and I know there are a few other forumites who did.

Maybe look in show off and search for her and see what we all did.

I always look for how others tackled a mini, to see what I like and don't like and maybe spot some difficult areas which are better visible once painted.


She's a great mini, one I might pick up in metal one day.

Although I found the Bones version quite detailed.

The one thing I would wonder about the metal version though, is how heavy it would be? (Can anyone who has the metal version 'weigh in' on this? Hurhur bad pun I know! :;): ) I have trouble holding heavier miniatures for any long stretches of time, so if I am going to get a large figure for the detail I'd want something in resin preferably.


Nice color harmonics there.

Thank you. I am quite a fan of dark skin and fair hair. We'll see how it comes together on this figure. I may be popping into the Google Hangout again tonight so will do some more on this piece. I have also started removing the mould lines on my box of Arcadia Quest chibi minis.

Really excellent.

Eeeee thank you so much Loim!


Had an hour or so in the Google Hangout tonight and used it to finish laying down my base colours:


Really wanted to wrestle with the overall palette and look of the mini before I tackled more shading. I really want to go back and re-work the skin too. I feel so rusty with my mini painting techniques, it's good to be cutting my teeth on a Bones mini before I pick up something fancier again.

Oh my goodness it is legit mini painting Christmas for me right now! Mad Jack offered to send me a few spare paints he had if I covered postage to help replace what I lost. I opened the door to a package full of goodies!


Not only has he sent paints, primer, flow improver, etc. but some Bones minis and some base stuff like grass and snow! Eeeee!  :bday:  :bday:  :bday:  I feel like a very lucky little painter right now.
