Catgirl Pirate by Das Schwarze Auge (Ral Partha Europe)

Recommended Posts

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.



Tune in later to find out what's next ...

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!

Just tossed a little Red Iron Oxide as a base coat on her head bandanna.

      Finished these off. Really easy to paint and enjoyed the process. Reaper Razig shown on right for scale.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      I recently finished playing Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and felt the urge to paint something piratey.  There is a lot of room for improvement, and I regret my colour scheme (It is lacking a bit of contrast) but I still enjoyed painting this one, I even felt adventurous enough to attempt some weathering on the sword which didn't turn out as horrible as I anticipated.  Overall a good learning exercise.

      B:GCC - Mission 23 "A COWardly Act".  Catwoman's cats have been poisoned by poison milk.  The Bat Team has gone in to investigate, but hasn't returned!  It is now up to Batcow to rescue the Bat Team from the clutches of Poison Ivy.  
      I...don't get Batcow. I mean, I understand that comic books have to comic, but why include him in an otherwise serious game?  He doesn't really fit the tone of this game system. 
      The Dynamic Duo

      Catwoman with her Long Halloween outfit.  She is not actually in this mission, but she is the person giving the introduction, and I hadn't painted her yet.  
      Batcow.  The heroine of our story.  Admittedly you can have a lot of fun with Batcow and she was an easy paint.  I mean, you can't really screw up a cow, no matter what you do.  
      Mother's Day Flowers! (also Poison Ivy's deadly henchmen)

      Have painted up this motley crew to add to the pirate skirmish collection I seem to be building. 
      The Dwarf is from the Pirates of the Dread Sea kickstarter, from a micro company in the UK. 
      The big orc is an ogryn from Privateer Press. 
      The chap with a musket has been painted as a half orc, he is a Reaper mini from the Warlord line.
