89027 Lini (Variant): "Tika" - Gnome Druid Bleachling

Recommended Posts

Miniature: 89027 Lini, Iconic Gnome Druid
One of my cast of characters in Pathfinder was a Gnome Druid bleachling.  Tika Mrae Adajiir (d'Saong).  
Trying to convert the WAR art from the icon to what I was was very challenging and tedious to do (and I never finished it in the Shop of Photos).  Upon discovering Reaper, and wanting to begin painting other things besides my bride's zombies (she loves all things zombie, but especially co-op tabletop ones).  
In my haste and limited budget, I threw the miniature into the basket along with the fighter I am going to be painting up for Haldir's campaign down below in The Playing.  I also only got Brown Liner.  Well.. the leather parts will be easier? lol


I tried mixing the following for the initial skintone, but it was too light:
09093 Golden Highlight (Reaper)
70.918 Ivory (VMC)

I then repainted the skin with just the 09093 Golden Highlight.
This is after the second coat:





I did not take a photo of the sequences of her hair.  Currently it appears very bright, but it is going to be worse... and if nothing else, it will be an experiment in what to not do...


Her hair will be the following:

70.918 Ivory (VMC) 

70.820 OffWhite (VMC)

70.951 White (VMC) - A very few select highlights


The current photo is several coats of Ivory only.

I would've tried a ghost white base maybe 1 I ivory then a glaze of red/ivory then what you did. But I don't know what a bleachling is. I'm going to try that soon though.

Bleachlings are gnomes that have lost the overwhelming urge to discover new things. Most do not survive the lackluster life and fade away until they die. A few survive and have a calm balanced outlook on life... many become druids.

I did not have a different color base. Yes, I would do this different as well. But this is about the journey and the learning and I'll see where this takes me.

      Anyone who has got the male one of these able to tell me how easy it would be to remove his head for use on another mini?

      This was supposed to be a quick tabletop paint job but ended up taking longer as I tried different techniques. It was a fun but tricky one to paint with the limited palette I choose but I like challenging myself and I am very pleased with the final result.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.

      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      This is my first try at using Milliput to sculpt. One of my players has a Druid with a turtle shell shield so I made the flat metal looking shield of Tolan into a turtle shell. I may wash or glaze over the shield to tone down the contrast. Not sure what color to use though.

      Blink Berenwicket, Female Gnome by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku# 03732. The armor is painted with some ancient GW green metallic. I experimented with blue metallic on the sword but I'm not overly thrilled with the result but it is good enough to call done :)
