This is the Wizard from Grenadier’s Wizards box set circa 1980. Most of the minis from the set were called variations like Sorcerer, Illusionist, Magician, and Warlock. But there are also 2 druids and a cleric included.
I painted all the minis from the set in my teens, then wanted to repaint them in my early 20’s so I had my friend sandblast(!) the paint off. That eroded much of the detail. So the detail in the beard, hands, imp, is almost all painted in.
This is the Bone 4 version of Enora, Iconic Arcanist (60178) . A common issue with Bones figures is being "soft" on detail compared to their metal counter parts but I was impressed with this casting. I found it to be very well defined, even the fine chains and other small details.
I really tried to focus on lighting and contrast. I imagined the light to be coming from the left front of the figure. I took a few photos of the base coated miniature with that lighting and used them as a guide. This really helped focus where my lights and darks should be.
This I a quick tabletop paint job (about 2 hours) I did for a fellow player. She plays a cleric with a holy glowing sword and has a number of light spells, so I went with a gold and yellow scheme. Base coated the figure with red liner, which has a nice red-brown color to it, and did a quickie drybrush over that for the armor. I am really pleased by how her face came out. The character believes there is no redemption for evil, and so I've nicknamed her Sister Mary Kill-Them-All.
