Warhammer's Royal Couple: Ariel & Orion

Recommended Posts

Amazing! I don't know what colors you used for the lady's dress, but it kind of looks like leather or skin, especially the back of the skirt. Just love that dress! I never would've thought about painting it like that. Beautiful. The horned guy is also excellent. Love the way you painted his bow! 

 

Also a fan of the way you match up colors on the bases with similar colors from the figures. Fairy type creatures should look like part of their environment. Nicely done.

So spring and fall are covered ... any plans for summer and winter ?

haha now you say it, I would love to do something with summer & winter... but I just don't know (yet, at least) with which miniatures. These two are demigods on Warhammer setting, and their size is bigger than that of a regular elf: I think they must be equivalent to a 54mm scale figure. There is not other elven characters that scale that I know...

Thank you! For the Lady's dress I used "Dryad Bark" as a base, then lighten it with "Karak stone", and finally highlighted with "Karak Stone". All washed a couple times with "Agrax Earthshade". All of them are Citadel. Dryad Bark is a deep kinda greyish brown, and Karak Stone... I don't know how to describe it xd Believe me, I wasn't sure about painting it that way till it was almost done. I think one of my strong suits is that I have - Or I think I have -  a good eye for color, and combining color... and that usually saves it for what I lack on technique. 

And thank you for what you say about the bases ^^ Basing is not my strong suit, and I can rarely work on improve it just because I don't have space for escenic bases...
