Hello all,


Starting a new WIP for a mini I'm working on for one of the players in my D&D 5e campaign.


One of her characters is a Tiefling Eldritch Knight, so I have selected the glaive-weilding S'Kara to be the starting point for this project...






As you can see, I have just begun. I have primed the mini, and used a pair of pliers to slightly curve her horns, to achieve a more ram-like, less devil-like look.


I'm currently in the process of selecting colours for the cloth portion of her outfit. Any suggestions or ideas? (Fyi, she will have dark brown hair and olive skin).


As always, comments and constructive feedback are always welcome! ::):

Love this mini. I was a bit disappointed in how the Bonesium one turned out. I can't wait to see it all painted up.

Last Update Tonight


- started my first coat of skin and hair.

- painted most of the metal surfaces (weapons and armour) to get a sense of the details.

- painted the hip flask. I used MSP emerald green (09103) to get a green glass/wine bottle look.






Still lots to do, but I feel like I'm making progress! I'll try to get some more painting done tomorrow before/after work.

Post-wash update:




I still can't get over how awesome the first wash is. Everytime, all kinds of details just pop out!


Next step is a bit more dry brushing to build some contrast, then I'll try to do the eyes (my nemesis!!).


Progress continues to be made! :)

I would humbly suggest trying to layer the skirt, not dry-brushing.

Thanks for the suggestion! :)

I'll browse through the painting tips section of the forum to get some pointers on layering.

After looking up some layering tutorials on YouTube, I have made an attempt at layering the skirt. 

A big thank you to @paintybeard and @Glitterwolf for convincing me to layer instead of dry brushing! Because of you, I reached out to a new technique and discovered I love it!

Looks promising so far. It's a bit of a matter of taste with layering, you can keep adding lighter layers almost ad infinitum! Personally I would go a leetle bit further by adding some more orange to the mix. But if you are happy, don't let me talk you into anything you don't feel is good. It's YOUR figure.

More layering and touch-up for your viewing pleasure...

Also, EYES! 


Thank goodness Tiefling eyes are essentially pools of infinite darkness! Makes them much easier to paint.

To give the eyes an extra-ethereal look, I used MSP Adamantium Black (09124).






We're getting near the end. Might try to blend in some of the layering on the robe. Not sure.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Not as happy with Candy as I was with Sugar, but she was fun to paint. She does have pupils in her eyes, honest.
      I've just noticed a strip of white on the top of her left thigh. Great.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-

      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.

      The last of my recent work. Always wanted to try/do (first attempt) an orange dress on a female character as it's my favorite color but always told myself to wait and do it on an elf, but for some reason she just happened to turn orange.
