I'm painting this up for the BBEG this weekend. Last night I tried the layering technique for black by using multiple thin layers of complementary colors. Someone posted the artist and demo on the Reaper fan page a couple of weeks back when someone asked about painting black. If anyone knows the artist or link, please let me know since I can't find it. I highly recommend it. While these pics don't show the various tones of colors, it looks like rich black with some depth vs going flat like some black paints do. I love the effect. However, I will say it doesn't work as well on something more curvy. I was also trying it on another mini for her top and she'd very curvaceous. It looked a little weird so I just repainted it.
So that being said, I'd love some thoughts on what to do about the collar piece and gloves he has. Should I do the same black treatment or go with a different color? I think I'm going to do his pants in a gray so the focus is more on his armor. Thanks!
Finished him rather quickly because he was a breeze to paint. No assembly required is always welcome.
Only complaint I might have is these reaper models with already sculpted thick bases that I have to try and work around to base the figure myself.
Steals away some of the creativity and fun.
I originally purchased him use his alternative skull head and arm, but needed a human necro for an upcoming scenario. I like this version too.
Here is another Mantic mini. This one a Necromancer. I’ll use him someday probably as a villain, but would love to use him as a PC if I get the chance.
BTW, my 7-year old came up with the color scheme. Here is my color sketch I made while she was describing the colors.
