Pinup Disciple of the Witch; Gamer Scale

Recommended Posts

Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
 

I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.

 

My current projects in various stages on my desk.

And just the pinup after some prep work

A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out.

I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
 

And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme.

Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
 

Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
 

Happy painting everyone.

That painting over a photo idea is pretty neat; it never occurred to me to do that.

It’s the easiest way for me to plan a paint scheme. I know many artists use their PC to flesh out colors, or sketch the mini then paint. It’s not always super accurate printing the stock photo as you’re basically painting over greyscale, but it gives me a good idea with my actual paints. It’s also good for breaking in brand new brushes as the paper is a bit harsh and causes some hair loss to the brush. So only use brand new brushes you’d like to see lose some hair or old brushes towards the end of their life. 
 

Most times I play with two-three potential color schemes as I use this method to settle on one. Sometimes I’ll find a mini the alternate scheme is more suited to and I can use at another time. Here is a mini that had two schemes and this led me to choose the blue with red hair and gave me a focused view of my overall plan.

Very cool idea.  Also, those Stormtroopers are looking sharp!!

Thank you…my poor stormtroopers I had to break from them as they have begun to create a block for me. I leave them out to put a bit of paint on them between other projects and while paint dries. Hopefully soon they’ll get to see the finish line and game table.

Well you've done a fabulous job on them so far, how clear you've gotten all the lining and everything is impressive, especially as those models are often pretty "soft" on the details.
The good thing about you taking your time is, a new RRG due soontm (AMG has said it is with Disney for sign off) and the Empire is expected to get some adjustments to improve them against the other factions.
