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!




edit, already seeing glitches....

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....

A little more here, beginning the high lighting...

Scale 75 Violet and GW Liche Purple on the hair, 

and Scale 75 Field Grey 39 on the tunic








Darn thing is so tiny, I had to get out a Ro&Co 3/0 brush...


I have also come to terms with the left side of the face, as the description of the mini says she's scarred....


Thanks for looking!

      Hi all you Reaper cats and kittens!
      So today a neat little figure, a Halfling Tiefling, from Stonehaven Miniatures, sculpted by their owner, Mike Evans.  This one was released with their Kickstarter a few years back that was mostly dedicated to all sorts of interesting halfling models.

      I decided on white hair just to give some nice contrast to the pink skin, and then mostly purples and pinks mixed with reds and oranges.
      and then here, just for fun and a size comparison is a Reaper Tiefling I did a little while back, Fillyjonk. I kind of did some similar things color-wise, even though Fillyjonk's skin was more reddish to start out with and the little hobbit more pink.  And after having painted both of these, I'm really looking forward to Bob Ridolfi's Kickstarter tieflings! Wondering what other colors I might use with them a year or so from now.

      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      3D Printed on my Elegoo Mars.
      Mini: BitetheBullet
      Helmet: CastNPlay.
      Base: Sculpted with Milliput over a plastic base.
      Part of my Shifting Sands Project
      Young, Beautiful but foremost...deadly.
      Kalista served in the Lion's, the elite guard of the High King himself, but when she refused his "attention" she found herself in the Arena.
      And there to the King's dismay, she not just survived, she won, over and over again and she became so populair that in the end the King had no choice than to set her free to please the crowd.
      These days Kalista is for hire as a mercenary, she leads caravans or nobles safely to their destination among other "jobs" ...
      Her reputation is often enough to secure a safe passage.
      And should some robber not know her? Well....what happens then is just adding to her reputation.
      There are rumours that Kalista even volunteers to fight in the Arena again but only for the right price.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.
