Maledrakh's 77409 Fiara, Elf Heroine

Recommended Posts

Thank you @Xiwo Xerase for naming this mini. :winkthumbs: It is in the reapermini.com shop, turns out it just does not have "elf" as a search term...

I thought this elf was female, but no. That is elves for you. In any case, gender really does not matter anyway for most things other than procreation. (edit: ze has swapped gender from metal version to the bones version, and is now sold as "Elf Heroine" in bones and "Vale Swordsman Elven Grunt" in metal.)

I could not find this one in Bones at reapermini.com so I do not know what it is supposed to be called or what it's code is.

Has it been discontinued or is it just an oversight? Was it ever released to retail in Bones? It is available in metal though.

The colors look good and the base fits her well.  She seems to be missing eyes but this may not be a big deal since she's looking down.

 

(The metal version also has her tagged as being female.  She is one of three sculpts from 06120: Vale Swordsmen (9), Elven Grunt.  It could be that "Swordsman" is intended as a title or position rather than an indication of gender.)

 

(The Bones version has no tags listed at all.  This is probably a bug that crept in during the transition to the new site, along with her name change.)

Those Warlord sets, originally in 3-packs, had two male and one female figure.  I think you are correct about the term "Swordsmen" being a generic plural.

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

      I am the Lord of Darkness.
      I require the solace of the shadows,
      and the dark of the night.
      Sunshine is my destroyer.
       
      All this shall change.
      Tonight, the sun sets forever
      There shall never be another dawn!

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.
