77396 Olivia, Mercenaries Cleric

Recommended Posts

Hello!  I recently had my first in-person game in a year and a half, and started getting the yen to paint my vast hoard of unpainted Bones.  Having painted a few, I thought of the Forums, and thought - well, I should post them here!  I always love to search for other people's paint jobs, perhaps they may want to look at mine.
I did, incidentally, participate in Bones V, but I messed up my pledge (I thought I closed it in like October, but apparently didn't,) but it's not like I didn't have enough from II and III.  Anyway, this is a sculpt I marked down as "I really want to paint this," -- Olivia.  For some reason the look on her face just appealed to me.  I generally start off with Brown Liner on my Bones, and in this case that was probably a mistake - since I wanted her to be dressed in a de-saturated yellow robe I never quite got rid of the brown.  Ah well.  I also tried to make the vial she was holding half-full and look like glass... I think I succeeded but I'd love to know your thoughts.
Comments, Criticisms, and advice most welcome!

      The conclusion of this https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90309-ashana-female-genie-44012-or-the-reversal-of-fortune/
      and this https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95842-nolzurs-efreeti-and-zayafid-60154-the-reversal-of-fortune-part-2/
       
      ...But! While Ahmad had been stripped of his wealth by his enemies, and his wives scattered, and he himself cast to the utmost depths of the sea, even the efreet conjured against him could not make his wives less faithful or kind, nor had they forgotten what they had learned. 
       
      Straightaway they endeavored to find one another again, and set out into the desert where they had hidden another treasure as a safeguard against this day. 

       
      A spirit of intellect, given knowledge less than Allah, yet knowing anything that He would permit to be known by man or djinn. 
       

       

       
      For when one is granted wisdom, do they not also thirst for true knowledge as one thirsts for water? Upon his elevation, Ahmad had taken steps to seek out such against the day it would be needed, and told his wives of the same, knowing he could trust them. And so they enquired of the spirit whither Ahmad had gone, and if he could be found and restored (for while they were faithful, his wives would much prefer to be married to a wealthy man than a destitute beggar, be he never so insightful).
       

      "INDEED," spake the spirit in a tremendous voice that made the dunes echo, "WHILE YOUR HUSBAND WAS REMOVED BY AN IFREET TO THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN, KNOW YE THAT ALLAH IS MERCIFUL, AND SURELY DOES NOT FORSAKE THOSE WHO BELIEVE! THE MOST HIGH HAS SENT A GREAT FISH TO SWALLOW HIM AND BRING HIM BACK TO SHORE UNHARMED, AND EVEN NOW IT SWIMS TO THE CITY OF SHIPS, WHERE IT WILL DISGORGE HIM IN A DAY'S TIME." 
       
      "MOREOVER, LOOK YE AT THE INMOST ROW OF ITS TEETH, THIRTIETH TOOTH FROM THE LEFT SIDE. THERE YE MAY FIND A RING CONTAINING ONE OF MY GREATER BRETHREN, CAST INTO THE DEPTHS MANY YEARS BACK. HE IS GREAT IN POWER.

      TWICE MORE MAY YE CALL UPON ME, THEN I AM RELEASED." And so saying, he withdrew into the vessel appointed for him. 
       
      Even so did it take place, and you may inquire at the City of Ships if it be not so. The great fish fed the entire city for three weeks, and behind its thirtieth tooth inmost on the left side, there was a brass arm-ring, which Ahmad's wives were quick to remove. Returning to Zayafid's palace, they rubbed the ring.
       

       
       
       
      Of that we may be sure, but Allah alone knows what came next, for in a conflict between djinns and sorcerors astonishing things transpire, and the order of the world is written and rewritten, such that mortals differ in their memories of the events. 

       

       
      Some say the city is shaped differently now, others that the city is unchanged but that the mountain it sits on was altered, others that the rivers changed course, and many others deny all these and attest to other miraculous transformations. 
      But all agree that Zayafid the Sorceror-Prince walks its streets no more. And it is said that in Ahmad's treasure room--for he was soon restored to his former exalted state--is an orb of crystal no bigger than a quail's egg, containing a perfect replica of a certain perfumed pleasure-garden, frozen in an instant of time. And while treasures flow from his hands to the people, this he has kept--along with a certain brass arm-ring, tarnished as with years in salt water.

      Thus is the marvelous tale of Ahmad the thrice-fortunate. May the hearer be inspired to virtue thereby!

      These genies were a delight to paint. I'm happy with the dawn coloring on the big one. Notice that it originally came with the smoke emanating from a lamp, but a) so many do, while so few sculpts use the equally-canonical rings and jars, and b) scale creep made it about the size of a man's torso in 28/32mm. Here's a turnaround with more angles. 
      Used more colorshift paints on his space-vest. 
       
      Olivia (77396) is also a great sculpt, especially for starkly contrasting colors. I don't believe I featured her earlier. Jazmine Silverveil, Almaya, and Qadira got their own show-off posts elsewhere. I guess for the purposes of this fiction Nemesra changed her style between Parts 1 and 2? 
       
      And here are all the extraplanar entities that aren't as holy as angels and aren't quite devils:

      Greetings!
       
      Coral Golem from the "Titans Of The Tide" pack in Bones 3.
       
      It was quite tricky trying to determine many of the details on this mini but I got there in the end . Some of them, like the little fish & the sea cucumber were a pleasant surprise!
       

       

       

       

       
       
      There are areas of UV paint on this mini but I'm afraid I can't get very good pics showing it but the following will give some Idea. If anyone knows how to take a successful pic in low light using a UV lamp, pls let me know & I'll give it a go & post pics.
       

       

       
      Thanks for looking!

      Wanted to use all (most) the colors on my wet palette before I cleaned it... and decided to tackle the Patchwork Gang.

      With the tubes carrying fluid, it gave me a reason to try my new colorshift paint from TurboDork that someone on the boards recommended. Seems to work well. It is only a small area, but maybe you can tell in the pics. (3D Glasses is the color).

      trying for some texture on this one. 
      then went for a flowered shirt, but it looks like a print on a t-shirt. 
      Now I kinda want to sculpt a watch on him. perhaps he is from a modern Martial art campaign.
