Elliwyn Heatherlark - Gnome Bard 77164

Recommended Posts

After the rather involved Vlad project I thought of painting something a tad less complicated. 

 

I chose Elliwyn Heatherlark, the Bones version that is. It is a simple conversion with a weapon swap, new sheath and ultimately a cut-off monster head in her hand. 

 

I will go heavy on weathering and signs of recent battle to contrast the diminutive appearance of Elliwyn. 

 

So far I finished the green overcoat and her face.  Army Painter Glistening Blood Effect came in handy. I also tried to add a subtle texture to the overcoat. 

 

C&C as always welcome. IMG_20200105_010121.thumb.jpg.edab109c97cb2d120aa75500f8bd4712.jpgIMG_20200105_010221.thumb.jpg.b73b4dddfd04feb24db2cbf424f1c846.jpg

Thank you, glad you like her so far. The base is not finished yet and will be a forest one. That said it looks rather snowy. Plain construction glue dabbed on with XPS flagstones.

Some more work put into her hair and the Gnoll head in her hand. I will add more fur to it,  so she can hold it by the bushel. 

 

I am thinking about giving her freckles to round off the red hair look. What do you guys think?

I put some more time into her and changed my head plans: The Gnoll would always face down, so I will go for an orc head with dreadlocks or something. Maybe something Predator like. Other than that worked more on the metals and the leather. I want to highlight the face a tad more and add freckles.

Now how did an alien get into a fantasy setting? And how did she kill one of those?:blink:  
Great work!

I thought more of the hair style,  you know some dreadlocks and that combined with an orc head. So maybe the chieftain sports such a hairdo. I won't make it a 1 to 1 Predator, even so I am a big fan of the design. Maybe with another mini.

I decided to give my Gnome fighter a slightly more exotic monster in its hand: a Nure-onna,  basically a snake with a human head. I will add long hair and then it is finished.

 

So no Orc head. I think this is a bit more interesting and also adds stability to the miniature, as the chopped of part rests on the base.

Getting to the finishing line with the Nure-onna. I added some hair yesterday, but might add more volume. I think the creature turned out suitably grotesque and disturbing. I think I might sculpt  a living one,  too. Maybe even from scratch. 

 

The colour scheme will be interesting. Black hair with green scales and skin or maybe red scales and skin?

      I am diving into some more of the white-undercoated Bones 1 models that are cluttering up my Drawers of Doom, models that for some reason or other have been stuck in limbo never to get to painted-heaven.
      This was painted mainly with the so-called "one and done" method; a single coat of Citadel Contrast paints on a white undercoat, apart from a few details in regular paint, such as the sword and belt buckle done in metals and the whites of the eyeballs. Some black used for blacklining around some of the edges and Vallejo Sand Yellow for the hair.
      The rim of the base needs a second coat of black.
       


      77164 Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard.

      Sculpted by Derek Schubert. 25mm base.

      It was part of the "Half Sized Heroes" subset of the Bones 1 Core set.

      Anyone who has got the male one of these able to tell me how easy it would be to remove his head for use on another mini?

      This was supposed to be a quick tabletop paint job but ended up taking longer as I tried different techniques. It was a fun but tricky one to paint with the limited palette I choose but I like challenging myself and I am very pleased with the final result.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.
