Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
C&C very welcome.
Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

This miniature will be roughly my third or fourth venture into the realm of oil paints. Everything, with exception to the metallics, eyeballs, and some skin highlights were done in oils. This is also my first attempt in basing in the style of James Wappel (wappellious) using Green Stuff World texture rollers, sculpey, and Vallejo texture paste.
No black paint was used in this exercise. I still can't take great photographs, but eventually I will get there!
So I dug an old mini out of the bottom of my box of forgotten lead - the 1989 Firbolg by Ral Partha. This classic figure deserved better than being lost for a generation so I decided to paint it up and take a few photos on the way.
It was in fine shape except for the broken / missing handle and pommel for the sword, so I started with a repair job - pin it to win it.
A quick test of my sculpting skills, I used milliput to add a new handle over the pin. I gave the whole model a new prime with vallejo surface primer through my airbrush. Overall, not too bad and one quick mold line removal later and a touch up prime and it was ready for some color.
Time for getting some basic color on the model. I started with reaper golden shadow for the skin. It's a nice warm base to paint over, so I was pretty hopeful that it would provide the right base for the reaper warrior flesh I planned on using later.
Next up. some shadow. I used vallejo model air burnt umber for the shadows and for a first coat of the leather bits.
