Ladies of Death by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

I'd go for number one, with her face looking downwards, she appears to be giving instructions to the wolves, or even with her hands outstretched is telling them there's no more treats...

Voting here is a very hard task, because they are all cool, but I actually I also vote for Lady Death because the whole scene you built up looks for me very Tim Burton style (which I love) and this Lady Death matches simply too well with the whole scene. Good luck in finding the sculpt somewhere.

 

Concerning the paintjobs and figures in the beginning of this thread: Hey it seems we both have got a pretty similar taste in sculpts. A lot of what you have painted here was also on my desk a couple of years ago and some are still unpainted like the Harpy by Freebooter for example. I like them and concerning the shading and highlighting and such we are working at this point already. For me a miniature is already cool if the basecolours are applied in a clean way, because this looks already good. Additional work makes it better, good, amazing, incredible, breathtaking. Depending on what painting level one wishes to reach. This normally happens by itself with time and so let the way unfold in its own pace.

Edited the number of votes.

Oh about finding the sculpt?

They are all very cool, but I think skull face would look coolest with your current paint style.

Edited, she's winning.

 

Hm...what is my painting style in this case?

What do people expect?

 

If she is the chosen one, then will she be painted with a plain skull or a dias de muerta face?

I think about the bright colors and especially the sugar skulls you did on the dias de muerta base

Yes, definitely go for the Freebooter Lady of Death with a sugar skull paint job!

It seems Lady Death in a Sugarskull version is the winner.

 

But before she can claim victory..

I got a message!

 

@Mad Jack is sending me one of these.

She will definitely get painted anyway, but maybe you guys want to vote for her?

I would go with whichever mini you view as the easiest to paint of the group & save the hard ones for later when you have a feel for the minis.

My friends who raised French Napoleonics tended to paint the Old Guard first, making their elites the worst painted unit in the army.

I hear you!

I think I can manage either of them, I love painting evil ladies especially vampires/necromancers.

 

They will all get paint sooner or later, I was just wondering who would look best in front of that crypt and interacting with some death hounds.

As for those death hounds, these are the Bones version, I also have a few of the very very old Citadel metal Chaos Hounds. The 80's style ones.

I could also use those or a mix.

Assembled the crypt and added some steps.

 

The gaps will be filled later and there will be moss and stuff like that.

      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

      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.
       

      The obligatory size comparisons...
