That face is awesome given the size of these minis!

 

She gives me a "hidden African Empire" vibe.

Highly sofisticated, advanced community, discovered by accident by a bold adventurer who now has to live there forever to prevent him from sharing his discovery.

In order to make sure he won't escape he married the beautiful daughter of this Queen.

A happy man...

Until she gets angry.....

Excellent ebony skintones, and the white dress is also subtly and carefully shaded. What colour did you use for the shade?

 

The feather cape is also excellent, but I think would be even better with a bit of colour variation.

I think I started with leather white, then used a variety of different washes, ashen blue, twilight blue, the dark elf skin triad, and maybe a few more.  

 

For the feathers I got a little lazy at the end and just made them a single color, I thought about doing a number of colors, or decorating with a little bit of design, like those eyes that peacock feathers have, but there comes a certain moment where I want to get things finished and kind of give up!

Lovely - I think the dark skin in perfect against the white and I am amazed at the face - how do you do such small eyes with eye shadow?

Hi Iridil!

 

So I as I work on the skin I I do washes all the way down to walnut brown (used dark skin highlights as the base color).  Once I'm at the darkest wash I do walnut brown to fill in the eyes, then I paint back up with highlights up to white.

 

After that I do the eye shadow, in this case it was I think amethyst or amethyst highlight, I don't remember the name, and then on the top I did a line of darker purple. After that, then I actually do the eyes, filling in white, painting the dots with walnut brown and then dots of green over the walnut brown.

      A really nice mini! Highlighting the skin was fun! 😁 Thanks for looking!

      Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix.   Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages.  The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well.  Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag.  I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one!
       
      EDIT:  Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:

      Hello my little Rearperlificos!
       
      so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones.  I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur.  I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection.  Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time.  I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off.  Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure:
       
      the female:

       
      The male:
       

       
      and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo:
       

       
      I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......

      Hey everyone, I completed another one Yesterday. Some more orange... on a completely different model. She reminded me of Red Sonja so I decided to paint her hair fiery red.
      This is 02759, Dena the Barbarian sculpted by Dennis Mize.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      The Gravestone of Protection 77539 was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and the Shrine is a 3d print by Aleda at Gothic Things.

      So I found these guys at the last NEMPA paint day a I attended a few years back, and decided to paint them up...
      I have many other orcs from this line, but not these guys...
