Ladies of Death by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

Just for the record: The most said sentence on particular websites in that regard is: "Who is she?"

 

MY preferred sentence in that regard is: "Where are the shadows?"

 

Do more highlight and more shadows. Use washes and build up some colors above them. Light, thin layers. You can do it. Give it a try. Do a bit of progress documentary and post it on the forums.

 

And now ... for the real important stuff:

First of all, you're correct about shadows/highlights and such, but these are all older work.

Some were painted years ago.

They're shown to set the theme.

 

I will follow your advice with the newer ones!

Hope I can show some improvement.

 

The Necromancer summoning the Ghost was painted this year.

The others are all years old.

 

The lovely Not-Vampirella girl is the Female Vampire from Ral Partha, she's still available from Ironwind Metals Miniatures.

That's Raven the Winged Vampire from Freebooter ( Werner Klocke)

It's an older paintjob.

Complete thread here, linked because her victim is nude.

The Victim is Gen from Hasslefree with her horns removed,

During painting her ( years ago) I realised I needed magnifiers..

Ah!

I don't have that one.

 

I have the following 28mm /32mm Sophies.

Since she's a Succubus I will include her and those like her, here as well.

They all need paint.

 

The painted ones you see here are from the internet.

i'm at work and don't have access to my own pics right now.

I have many other beautiful Ladies of Death.

All need paint with this WIP I hope to motivate myself to get it done.

I might have even more, I need to go through my collection to be sure.

Some might not be Undead right now, but a little paint will soon turn those into vampires or ghosts.

 

Female Mummies are not included, those will appear in my Shifting Sands Project.

 

No Pics (yet)

 Dark Sword  - Amazone ( Topless Seductress) can't link since commercial..She will also become a Vampire.

 

Freebooter - Female Chaos Mage ( Topless, has a demon coming out of her coat)

 

 

Some are nude, therefore linked:

I found two other Ladies.

 

 

DSCN0785.JPG

So, we have to start somewhere and I thought it would be cool to start with something big.

A while ago I bought two Minimonster's Miniature Crypts, one was made into terrain.

 

Show off Here:

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80545-graveyard-scene-minimonsters-crypt-reaper-skeleton-and-tombstones-by-glitterwolf/

 

I have another one with a different roof.

I was playing a bit with this and I'm thinking to put it on a small hill, a small stairway down.

One of the Ladies of Death will stand before it, the Undead Hounds / Wolves from Bones III will be in it and maybe some gravestones / bats/ fence, something like that.

 

Now I'm just wondering which Lady will be the one?

One of the Vampire Ladies?

The Freebooter Lady of Death?

The Ghost Bride?

 

Anyone wants to vote for a certain Lady?

      For the last few months since Reapercon, I've been focusing on pumping out minis to avoid the rut I got into last year. When I saw that Reaper had released the ghost sailors as metal figures, well... I knew what one of my October projects was going to be. I loved these guys as part of the Bones IV kickstarter, but I've not enjoyed painting plastic minis as much since getting back into metals at the Reapercon melt table, so I was psyched to order them and put in an order that night... Most of the rest I had from Reapercon, although I think I picked up Labella there too.
       
      Either way, these guys painted up gorgeous and easy using my go-to one-two spirit technique! As a firm believer in spooky blue ghosts, I started by priming them white, then giving them a couple layers of Irrisen Blue from the new Pathfinder paintset... My old blue standby was from the HD line and the bottle has faded to the point of illegibility, but it was almost identical. Then once it's dry, I drybrush heavily with Linen White (pure white comes out looking starched, and bluer whites don't show on the blue, but linen is perfect) and... call it a day. Decorate the bases, maybe some pizza... 's good. That said, minis painted using this technique meet my #1 requirement for ghost minis: They're distinctive on the table!
       
      I debated doing some OSL, but decided that it would wash the bases out, unfortunately. I like it better this way, with the bases nice and grounded, and the ghosts spooky and glowing! Lots of fun base details on these, too - 10/10 recommend picking them up if you have any sort of use for them!
       
      Miniatures involved (not enough tags for them all): 03965: Ghost Pirate Cook, 03966: Ghost Pirate Quartermaster, 03967: Ghost Pirate Captain, 03968: Ghost Pirate Bosun, 03969: Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee, 03718: Ghost Bride, 03475: Labella DeMornay, Banshee, 03170: Lurien, Ghost, 14168: Gauren, Necropolis Hero, 03799: Female Wraith

      03170: Lurien, Ghost



      14168: Gauren, Necropolis Hero



      03799: Female Wraith

       
      Of all of these, if I had to pick favorites... Hm... Ghost Bride and Gauren. They took the drybrushing perfectly and are super-fun figures!

      I thought people might enjoy watching me helplessly flailing about as I attempt to paint an exceptionally intricate mini.
       
      This is Tzandi:-
       

       
      She's one fourth of my Monkey King Gang.
      Made a little progress today:-
       

       
      Painted her skin.
      This started as a base of Elf Flesh, was shaded with Flesh Wash and then highlighted with Elf Flesh and 1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh.
      She then got lips of 1:1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh/Warlord Purple, and dots of Brown Wash for eyes and between her lips.
      I had made a little bit of a mess painting her hands, so I went back over them carefully with Flesh Wash, just to give her separate fingers again.
       
      I automatically started painting her bosom as skin before realising she's wearing a dress under her corset, so that will be painted over eventually. The next job is hair and her ridiculously tiny hair ribbons.

      Been working on a series of monster hunters from the Early Modern Era, and of course that means we need early modern monsters!

      The Vampire, of course, is one of the most versatile classics. Polidori, the "Varney" authors, LeFanu, and Stoker popularized the concept and promoted the bloated varcolac or shambling nach-zerer to the aristocracy. The variety is almost infinite, but nowadays we expect them to be parasitic, narcissistic, obsessive, entitled, compelling, rule-bound, and of course, literally blood-thirsty. 

      Here's one such vampire, the beautiful Jahenna. Alluring, beguiling, deceptive. This is one of the crispest, cleanest sculpts I've encountered with regard to hands and hair. The conveniently-non-cruciform gravestone she's sitting on bears the legend "Mircalla RIP," a nod to LeFanu's "Carmilla" (source of the Vampire Anagram trope). The dress is very Jessica Rabbit-esque and my first attempt at fabric semitranslucency. Could probably have pushed those highlights more.

       
      Matthias the Twisted, on the other hand, is a very different flavor of vampire. He gets the full Murnau/Schreck treatment. Grotesquerie, disfigurement, corruption, contagion. An asymmetric bogey, horrific, athirst, more rat than bat or wolf. I do love the adorable little plague rats around and on him.

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      This mini is called "Vorvorlaka" and is from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Graveyard expansion. I based it on a 30mm lipped base.
