Those tiny malevolent glowing eyes are perfectly done!

Thank you all for the compliments.  I appreciate them.

 

This Grave Wraith miniature reminded me of a Wraith miniature from the Grenadier Models "The Lord of the Rings: Middle Earth Metal Miniatures" boxed set "Sauron's Dark Ones" from 1985.   It had floating eyes sculpted into the hood.  I wanted to replicate that look.  So, I drilled two tiny holes in the hood and glued two very tiny metal beads into the holes.  This made it easier to paint "floating eyes".

Oh, that's clever! I'll have to use that technique. Thank you for sharing!

that's awesome, looks great 

 

can't imagine how hard it was to get those beads in there,

 

more like grains of sand!

 

 

Thank you.  It was not as hard as you think.  I did use a very small drill bit.  Then a needle with a bit of super glue on the tip to put the glue in the holes.  Then I just kind of rolled the Microbead into the hole. Used the dull end of a paint brush to push it fully into the hole.  I got the Microbeads from Greenstuff World.  Sorry Reaper Guys for plugging one of their items.  I know someone would probably ask where I got such tiny beads.

      Just some bulk skeletons...nothing special. The spears were pretty bent when I got them. I worked with them a little to straighten them out, but figured I wouldn't spend too much time driving myself crazy (these were cheapies, after all 🙂). The detail on these guys is fairly soft, but they get the job done on the table.
       
      Sorry for the quality on the group shot. Wide shots aren't my camera phone's specialty.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
       
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
       
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
       
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
       
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.
