Sarah's hair was painted during RVE, Geoff Davis taught a great class about painting hair. Painting up the rest of the mini was a great excuse not to work on my Barros&Tempest project.
I did miss some evil mold lines, also I'm not too happy with the rosy gold paint I used on her staff. The paint has basically a rosy base with some big golden flakes in it that don't mix too well. I see it working on a car (low rider style) or a guitar body, but not as a stand in for actual rose gold.
Apart from that, I'm quite happy how she turned out. The mini has a surprising amount of detail, so lots of opportunities to practise brush skills.
I've been collecting the official ROSD miniatures and some Reaper minis that fit the aesthetic. I actually played the missions with others but wanted to set them all out (and may well start again with a new crew...).
There are 3 reaper minis in this, a Tre Manor ranger, Ardallen the Knight, and Aeowyn Silverwood.
My actual ranger/PC is by Dark Sword miniatures.
Then there is a recruit/guardsman from Grenadier, a dog by Wargames Atlantic.
The remaining minis are by Northstar. The caster is one of the rangers, and the 4 others are the NPCs in the Blood Moon mission. That one's a lot of fun as you need to find out which of them is a werewolf.
Painted her up last weekend at the RVE for class. Now this is definitely not my best paint job, far from it. Nor is it a creative colour scheme - it is exactly as given in class. Still, Sascha is one of the minis I am proudest of.
You see, I am a really slow painter. When I paint a mini, it usually takes forever. Even for my "get-it-off-my-desk-quality" I need more than a week to finish just the painting.
Not with her I didn't! All painting was done during the one hour class (except prepping and varnishing, of course).When the Zoom feed ended I put down my brushes. I didn't correct any mistakes I found later. And I won't.
This class was a game changing experience for me. Thanks, Tish Wolter, for making that happen!
