Finally got her doodads painted:-





Starting from the right:-

Bundle of plants (Medium Olive > Brown Wash > 1:1 Medium Olive/Iraqi Sand),

Tooth on a string (Cork Brown > Brown Wash > Cork Brown, Bonewhite on the tooth),

Voodoo doll (Cork Brown > Brown Wash > Cork Brown > 1:1 Cork Brown/Bonewhite with Bronze eyes),

Potion (Warlord Purple), I tried to pick out the skull on the bottle by painting it white with black eye and nose holes, then glazing over it with Warlord Purple, not too sure I was successful.

Sheathed dagger (Leather Brown > Brown Wash > Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Bonewhite).

Painted her glove (at least I think it's a glove) 1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > Brown Wash > 1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > 1:1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash.

And then her spear (shaft is Parasite Brown > Brown Wash > 1:1 Parasite Brown/Iraqi Sand, with Cork Brown bindings and an Oily Steel head).


Now I can't put it off any longer, I need to decide what colour her wings are.

You already used 3 main colors (2 complementary!), so, maybe (just my opinion)  you may paint the wings in blue (upper triangle) and the dragon in red (lower triangle) ^_^

That was my initial thought as well. Connecting with the green and magenta could be another option.

Thanks for all the colour theory advice, it's not something I've ever got a good grasp of myself.


As he appears to be some sort of sea serpent, I was going to paint the dragon blue (possibly turquoise). 

Before reading any comments I also made a halfhearted attempt at basecoating her wings purple (my painting mojo is low at the moment), I don't know if that colour combo would work, or if it's going to make her a little busy.

      When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
      One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
      Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. 
      Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
      Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!

      Catching a bit of a 1970's version of A Christmas Carol while channel hopping today reminded me that I still had these gals to paint:-

      I was planning on extending Presents base with putty but mine had dried up (Plus I'm not sure I would've had much success reproducing that wooden plank look anyways), so she's going to look a little weird (Although she already looks a little weird in her pirate cosplay).
      Just waiting on them to dry, and then, hopefully, I can start painting them tomorrow.
      Won't get them finished by Christmas, I'll probably still be working on them well into January, but I should be able to finish them eventually.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.
