Reaper Bones 77223 Kristiana, Female Paladin

Recommended Posts

I decided that my (admittedly small) collection of figs was starting to need a feminine element. I grabbed this gal from my stash and started another project to help distract me from my other projects. I also chose her because I am trying to learn my NMM and she's got a fair amount of armor. So far I have only done a few Barbarian males, so I am trying hard to be considerably "softer" with her skin tones. Her face is the also the only skin on this fig so I am trying to give it a lot of attention as I know it will be where the eye goes first (no pun intended). 

  Hmmm, this is a phone camera photo and the skin color is a bit washed out. Oh well, this will serve as a good enough "starting point" post.

Good beginning! I look forward to seeing how she turns out. And I thoroughly approve of doing faces early - it always serves as a guide for their personality to me :)

Edit: I think my phone may take better pics than my camera. Hmm, a bit disconcerting. Here's the phone pic;

Cleaned her up a bit. Getting happier with her with every session. That's good for keeping up paint morale. Gotta go to work, but here's what transpired this morning:

Well, I'm close to done here. Mostly I'm fed up with her, LOL. I don't want to bash the fig, after all, I've only just begun so what do I know? The casting is just not making things very easy for a beginner such as me. I've seen her in metal (Pathfinder maybe?) and I have to say I've been jealous. This Bones version has horrible swords and a noseless flat face that makes her look feline.

 I had some grand basing plans. That base will have to find another fig. However, I will take this one a little further, I don't want to get into the habit of leaving a project incomplete due to frustrations. I learned what I picked her up for so it's not time wasted (I keep telling myself). There are things I am pretty happy with, and I understand NMM more than I did. I still need to do more work on her blades, I really haven't given them proper attention, just threw on some paint here and there. I still need give her "headpiece" some attention as well, but I think I'll leave the front part as hair. It just doesn't show as a crown-like part as it does in other pics I've seen.

Update time! So for all my whining and complaining, she's starting to look semi-respectable. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Still haven't touched the blades in earnest yet, tonight perhaps. I think I may be able to call her done tonight( tomorrow am) if I work at it.  Still need to clean her up here and there. I've said that before, but wow! Last session cleaned up a lot. Thinking about dusting some "pigment"  (I have a nice set of chalk pastels) at the bottom of the fig.. Never done that before, any advice on affixing the stuff permanently? 

 TIA for any advice, c&c,

Done with this gal! It pays to stick it out. In the end I am happy that she's not on the "shelf of shame" (as I've heard some call it). Not only that but, I'm pretty happy with her. The swords look a bit rough in the pics, IRL they appear a bit more smooth, just a bit I suppose.

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. 
      We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. 
      Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       
      I started Kagunk, Ofre Chieftain a year or two ago.  
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.)  Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster.  Maybe patience does come with age.  :)
