This is a catgirl pirate ( "Nyamaunir-Piratin"), figure #15503C from Das Schwarze Auge, produced under license by Ral Partha Europe (which is not Ral Partha).

 

Got that?

 

She is a wee bit on the small side.  Here from left to right are a cat person (Khaliman) from the French "Alkemy" game, our little kee kat pirate, Reaper's 77340: Avatar of Sekhmet, and Reaper's 03478: Tawny Firehair, Cat Girl.

Here she is up close.  She has some nice details and a more fuzzy appearance than most of the cat people minis I've seen.

This is my standard priming:  A thinned coat of Titanium White allowed to dry for a full day, then a wash with thinned Burnt Umber.  It's related to Renaissance painting techniques and I find it gives a good warm foundation to start from.

 

I was painting her at the same time as some wolves, for economy of paint.  I figure I'm going to paint her like a grey cat.

 

The first coat of paint is a light grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened a good deal with white.

Here's a back view:

It may be noticed I'm a little casual how I apply my paint.  There are bits not covered and the paint has been thinned down and it isn't always the same opacity because of that and the under-brown shows through.

 

I mixed a slightly more translucent, darker version of the same grey and added some more.

Then I took some matte pure Carbon Black and indicated in her eyes, nose, mouth, and claws.  I put an undercoat of black on her sabers as long as I was at it, since I find it looks very good under silver.

Cool mini!

 

I have some DSA minis, they were originally from a German Company named Hobby Products, the same company that made the Demonworld 15mm Game.

Ral Partha Europe still sells both lines.

 

Wonderful stuff.

I like your approach!

      My daughters ship needed a steering wheel, so I bought the Drunken pirate and put him on the bridge.
      Took the Photos before adding the sails. So you have a better view on the decks.

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.

      Here is some more February painting - a bones IV crone with her black cat out of the familiar pack. Of course it was after pics that I noticed the bare spot on the base!

      So close to finishing off Season 2!  This is the final batch of individually packaged minis, including a few alternate versions of characters and somebody who's Nobody.  
       
      Nobody.  What is the difference between a villain and a super villain?  Presentation!  Nobody lacks that presentation.  Though I guess if your angle is an invisibility suit, you don't want to be flashy.
       
       
       
      Catwoman (from Hush, I think).  This is the third version of her, but the only version that can play for the bad guys.  
         
       
      Mr. Freeze, my favorite Bat villain.  This time with a helmet, which is both cool and annoying at the same time.
