Painting a Stonehaven gnome...

Recommended Posts

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

I really like Stonehaven minis, I just hate their prices (enough that I'll probably never buy anther one again, unless it's through a Kickstarter). Any ideas on color for the clothes?

So the next steps...

To the base SC75 Arabic Shade, added a 50% mix of Arabic Shade and Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh, then a 50% mix of Basic Flesh and Golden Skin...

The pants and boots got a couple coats of SC75 Abyssal Blue...

The pants will be brought up to a lighter than the boots... (hopefully anyway...)

Still early days, and going to need washes to blend things together, but blending is still beyond me now....

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

Are you using a wet palette? This might help you with paint consistency. It seems the paint application is a tad thick and looks chalky. Could be the surface of the miniature,  too,  however. 

 

I also recommend using a glaze medium. It allows you to apply thin translucent coats without loosing adhesion or consistency. 

 

I think if you work on paint consistency blending will come easier to you.

Yes, I am using a wet palette, It's been about 2 years since I have painted, and am still trying to relearn the skills I had....

Not happy with the left side of her face, but will see if I can fix it, or if she needs a simple green spa day....

      I felt like a slightly less involved project after Vlad, so I decided to paint Elliwyn Heatherlark. 
       
      I swapped her weapon with a gladius from the Agema Romans and also decided to give her a more interesting item than the small shield she originally carried.
       
      As it happened it got again more involved, as I sculpted a Nure-onna,  basically a snake with a human head, that she defeated in battle.
       
      Worked out well with the pose and provided me with the opportunity to experiment with gore effects.
       
      C&c very welcome. You also find the WIP thread here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89770-elliwyn-heatherlark-gnome-bard-77164/

      So this is my take at painting Na'Kaat
      My firend uses this mini as a pc in our dnd campaign. The axe that comes with the mini felt too small to her so I swapped it with the two handed axe from 03197: Thelgar Halfblood, Half Orc Barbarian.
       
      All in all this was one was nice to paint and is really nice to look at after  Hope you like it too!

      My Weird West campaign included the town of Lovelace, a steampunk bastion of order run by a Babbage engine of limited omniscience. Several of the citizens were clockwork-and-punchtape automata. 

      Meet Citizen Rustbuckets, one of the oldest inhabitants! I love Stonehaven sculpts almost as much as I hate paying for them. Look at that benign goggle-eyed face and its genial steam-shovel underbite! He's here next to HLPr-bot, featured previously.  
       

       
      And here's Marshall Crusher, the very long steam-powered arm of the law. I tried to make it look like he's got a boiler in there.
       

       
      Here's a sampling of the human and automaton population (in two shots because focus is hard).

      Just to try and get some mojo going, I decided to start these guys too...
      Since I used to thrive on having multiple projects going at one time....
      Derro Captain & Sorcerer




      and their troops, Derro Warriors (3)
      all Reaper minis








      Another group that has sat primed on the shelf of shame for a while...
      Reaper Linen White for eyes
      SC 75 Brown Grey for the skin...
      (I am stealing my old formula for skin that I used on my Reaper Duergar
       
      early days again, but stay tuned....

      Painting this guy up for ex's husband for their new campaign...
      Again, nothing much yet, but gotta keep track of colors....




       
      He's been sitting on the shelf of shame for a while, and the skin was done with GW Tanned flash, but I am going over that with SC 75 Arabic Shadow..
       
      eyes had been done at some point, so exact colors unknown...
       
      check back another time to see progress....
