Looks like I might have to pick this model up. She seems to be sporting a bit of a Greek vibe.

 

Lately I've been chewing through GW's Tzeentch cultists. They're also bad guys for Frostgrave and RoSD. When I finished them, I imagined them cutting down my wizard and kind of liked the idea. Some of Frostgrave's wizards aren't very nice people anyway. If you read the quotes on the cards, you'll see them as avarice embodied. When I paint my wizards, some of them come across as jerks, and some nice guys out for the welfare of their warband. It kind of depends on the sculpt, which helps dictate their school and spells and personality.

Thanks a lot, everyone!

 

Regarding the dress, I can't take credit for the colours, the paints were given in class. By myself, I would never have attempted to blend from purple to yellow, half way round the colour wheel (until maybe now, that is). But this teaches a lot of discipline, because the gradients are much easier to see.

 

I always enjoy the moment when a mini comes to life and develops a personality. I imagine that a really good painter can control how it turns out, at my painting level it's more or less random. But still, I consider a strong reaction a success!

      Looks like the recorded classes from the RVE have started to be posted to Reaper Youtube channel for those who may have missed any of it. Looks like they are being posted alphabetically by title.
       
      So they don't get buried on the channel as more videos get posted to their channel over time, or for anyone who visits the forums, I'm starting an index here and will update as I see more videos posted.

      Lunkh The Hill Giant and the Silver Dragon Egg
      If you haven't figured it out by now, I enjoy giants, and I have prolly said as much here more than once.  There are many more giants in the queue that is my shelf of shame.  However, I am doing my damnedest to move the queue.   A long while ago I picked up this hunk of metal named, aptly, Lunkh.  Much like the Ogre Mage, Master Phthalo, I based him on a two-inch square piece of shale along with stones, sand and ballast.  He got a primer coat of some tan paint I had on hand at the time and was promptly shelved in my home office.   You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here.  WIP   The foliage is different colors of moss along with some ground foam in muted red and bright green.  The moss was washed with some Reaper Walnut Brown to enhance the inner shadows of the bushes.   I present to you,
      "Lunkh, The Hill Giant and the Silver Dragon Egg"           Enjoy.
       
      I hope you enjoy him.  Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (approved)
