Jasper paints a Tabaxi Rogue

Recommended Posts

We're starting a new 5th Ed D&D campaign in a couple weeks.  I decided I might play a rogue, so I wandered down to the LFGS at lunch and looked at what was there (because I obviously have NO miniatures already I could use).

Spotted the Tabaxi Rogue female pack from WizKids (I like the sculpts and poses of the female figs more than the male ones) so that's going to be my next character.

Cool fig, primer isn't too bad.  Some nasty mold lines but I only have a week to paint this so I'm not messing with them.  Maybe after I'll clean up the "advanced" version and do a better job on her.

 

And after some time fiddling with colours.

Well, that looks a mess.  Just figuring out colours.

Skin base is MSP Alien Flesh.  Cloth is MSPB Succubus Kiss. Had AV Model Air Black handy so used that to start base coating metals.  And leather is MSP Leather Brown.  Still not sure on the leather but I'll give it some time to think about it and maybe try a wash on it.

Base colours are pretty much decided I think.

Fairly cleaned up except for the skin.  I'll wait and do that after I'm sure I've got the inside of the hood done the way I like.

As expected, yesterday was a write off.  I made it to 9 pm before collapsing in bed after my massage....

Today I touched up the skin a bit.  Then hit everything but the reds and blacks with AP Strong Tone.  And let that set.

Doesn't look like she will be ready for next Monday....but maybe the week after, depending on what next week is like.....

Wow, been almost a month....been a bit busy with other things (listed a house, accepted an offer on a house, viewed some houses,  had an offer accepted on a house, lots of packing, getting conditions met, etc...still so much to do).

So, since I haven't picked up a brush in a month....let's do eyes! :upside:

Took a few tries but finally something passable I think.  Need to do some cleanup around them, but not doing that tonight. Blackened Brown for the lining, first coat of Golden Glow, then Jade Green. Pupil slit is vallejo Model Air Black.

Also put one more coat of Succubus Kiss on.

 

Hopefully be back with another update more quickly than last time....character is up to third level already....

Looks great, but that is definitely not a tabaxi rogue...

That error isn't limited to that one. FLGS had either black dragon hill giants or the other way around when that wave came out.

Had a great massage yesterday, got rid of most of the tightness in my shoulders (packing to move is hard on my back) so I was able to hold a paint brush without it shaking tonight!

I just did a little 20-30 minute session, as I didn't want to push my neck and back too much (although I'll probably trash them again this weekend between the 8+ hours of driving and yet more packing).

So I worked on the red.

Lighting is crap for picture taking, but I think I've highlighted it.  I will probably give it another pass, but I don't want bright highlights.  She's a rogue after all and not likely to be hanging out in bright sunlight or anything.

Finally got back to work on this, with a decent amount of time.

All I think I really have left to do is finish the face and maybe put some markings on the tail and maybe hands.

And finish the base of course.
Pretty happy with where she is now, for table top.

Plan is to have her finished next week.  Guess I'll have to either buy some spray sealer or use brush on.  I have no idea where my current spray is packed.......

And she's done, as I'm out of time ::):).

Actually finished her up yesterday, after a brutally painful massage that got my shoulder working enough to paint without shaking.

After the photos I hit her with a spray of testors glosscote and then later a first coat of dullcote,  to get that much in before the rain started.  She's still too shiny, but it's packing time so the can of dullcote goes home as well, and I'll give her another spray or two whenever the rain stops.

Great job!

Put her in SHOW OFF!

      Forgot to post this fellow earlier! 
      The Pathfinder line Plague Doctor, a pretty direct riff on Doctor Schnabel von Köln. Skinny and unheimlich, with a vial of GLOWING FLUID. Is it a cure? Plague tincture? Reanimation serum? Acid?  Phosphorus? Depends on the game. 


      Orrrr...maybe the luminous tonic is a Hyde Formula? 

       

      (Guest appearance by Clay Golem as Mister Hyde.)

      You know who benefits from the chaos of a pestilential epidemic? No, besides Father Nurgle? Thieves! Thieves with robust constitutions and/or amulets of health. 
      Here's my take on Daschelle, 44009, the September mini inspired by Kurff the Swift.

      My son's DM wanted a purple beholder with red eyes.

      I had an itch to paint some horses so this is one of the horses from the Wizkids Adventure Camp set. I have always loved horses and greys are my favorite!

      Picked this guy up at a paint and take somewhere.  He was primed black and this is as far as I got without my glasses. 
       

       
      Fiddled around with him some more recently.  Experimented with some Contrast paints and various glazes.  Calling it done.

      Hellborn Troll
      from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
       
      I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).
       

       
      I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.
       

       
      It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.
       
      Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.
       

       
      Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.
       

       
      I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.
       
      I am quite happy with him so far.  
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy!
