I really like what you did with this, if I get to painting this one soon I think I will do something very similar.

Noice!  Where did you source the base from?  I like the color you chose for the mail.  Looks good and provides a nice contrast.

Thanks, y'all! If you're interested in how I made the armor look kind of gross/ruined:

 

I first painted the metal as normal, by basecoating and then shading/highlighting. After that, I used GW's Typhus Corrosion technical paint. I used it as a shade, but the key was that after I put it on, I wiped the figure off in a downward direction with a makeup sponge. This left the corroded effect in the depths. After that, I retouched the highlights.

 

I use Reaper paints for just about everything, but I have to admit that I enjoy GW's technical paints every now and then!

Thank you! The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures. They make some amazing stuff and I highly recommend them!

Genius; will have to try this soon! I love that dark, pitted, cast-iron effect.

Yeah, that Typhus Corrosion is pretty cool. Its got a mild grit in it or something. It also works well if you put it down before adding rust effects!

      “Nah. Why?”
      “Well it’s just... it’s just that they’ve got skulls on them.”

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This is my attempt to paint her. Let me know what you think of her.
       
      I attempted to give her magic weapons which is why they are blue like that.
       
      She is based with cinnamon, though I need a good way to apply the base where they are standing on it rather than having their feet buried.

      Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe.
      I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS.

      Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister?
       
      I have cut off the integral bases,  as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.

      B4core #1:

      This one was a bit of a struggle as I foolishly started from a black undercoat and later decided to do the tabard and shield in white. Bad Idea! Especially when I accidentally managed to paint a black line on the finished white shield....argh! seven coats of white later is can still be seen, albeit faintly. I am not entirely happy with the results around the sheild design, which ended up less sharp than I would like. This is also the same shield design as on the Bones 3 "crusaders" subset and also on Sir Justin Forscale, so apparently they are members of the same knightly order or follow the same deity.
      There exists a metal version of this minis called "Ava Justinia, Female Templar"
