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?

      So the ex is going to be joining a new campaign, and she asked me to paint her figure, the Stonehaven female gnome rogue....

      Still just starting, but need to motivate myself, as well as keeping track of colors....

      I am churning out the Bones 4 core set PC-types just to get them out of the way before I can get stuck in with the more interesting monsters and creatures. Apologies in advance for my lack of photographic skill. I thought I had found a good setting, but clearly not for all.

      Manga-haired gnome? A Fairy wearing boots?

      So here’s my question, got this little person with my last Reaper order, and I just wonder a little.  The miniature is a little bit heavier set or “thicker” than the concept art, and I’m just wondering, does everything think this is a gnome lass and not a young gnome beardless gentleman?

      She’s kind of similar to the other set that has a very obvious gnomish lady:

      Just wondering if everybody else has painted this little hooded gnome as a lass?

      These are the Deep Gnome Heroes. I love these minis! Their sculpts are so full of personality! I think the girl gnome may have the best face I have painted thus far!

      I recently started a project to go through the Bones 1 KS models I have in order from a printout of the Rewards pictures.
      Here is the first project: Cassie, Gnome Wizard.  There are some great examples of her out there.  I knew I wanted a purple-haired gnome, and just went from there.
      The most aggravating part of this miniature was the cloak.  I wasn't planning on spending so much time on these figures, but I tried a freehand Raindrop pattern, and it took a long time.
