This is a relatively recent paint job and I struggled with colors for a while before taking inspiration from another model and strengthening the contrast in places. I like the model but she feels very stiff and doll-like.
Or maybe she doesn't like the light in her eyes:
Fiddled around with some freehand on the back:
Artisan Guild 3D Design.
Printed on my Elegoo Mars.
Part of my Horde of the North Project.
Here she is.
For those interested she is a free sample on Thingieverse.
So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done. Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side.
Anyway, here goes:
Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues). Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company). Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such. As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.
99% reaper paints: Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes.
This mini actually has kind of a weird story.
This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign. This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary. Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign. But that's only part of the backstory.
I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004. I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe. I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield. My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.
For sixteen years.
Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!
May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not. Don't know how much more time I want to give this one. Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.
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.
