I'm painting this figure for a friend to be used in Frostgrave as a Necromancer, hence the choice of skin tone. The skin tone was created from a mix of Reaper Dusky Skin, Reaper Rosy Skin and Citadel Liche Purple.
Thus far only the first layers of shadow and highlight have been applied.
Blanche is from Hasslefree, stands at 35mm and was sculpted by Kev White.
One more painting session then she will be based. Following that I will take a test photo in order to make final corrections.
With this figure my goal was to try some more advanced techniques. I did the armour in green NMM and the shield design in gold NMM. Further this was my first attempt at using realistic water on a base.
Although I am not a display painter, I liked this figure enough to do more elaborate basing.
This is Christia the Chaste from Red Box Games, sculpted by Tre Manor. She is diminutive, standing at about 25mm.
Currently on the painting table I have a female Necromancer from Hasslefree Miniatures and some Lesser Undead from Red Box Games.
The painting table is full of figures from Red Box Games at the moment and I am working through them, albeit slowly.
This is Tradkarl, sculpted by Tre Manor. He's a hefty fellow, standing at 35mm.
He has loads of character and was a real pleasure to paint.
My next two projects involve painting females, something I tend to avoid as they are more difficult. However, they do present more opportunities for playing with colour and experimenting with skin tones.
Currently I am working on a series of figures from Red Box Games and I must say that I am absolutely in love with these figures. I prefer figures done by sculptors who have a firm grasp of human anatomy, who can lay down clean lines and create detail that is crisp and clear. Tre Manor is just such a sculptor. Further, the casting is nearly flawless. There is very little flash and I have yet to find discernible mold lines. A painters dream.
From left to right is Big Bernard, Ugly Jack and Hawkeyed Arvid.
The next figure up is Tradkar who could easily be used as a tracker in Frostgrave. I'm in the final highlighting stages and should post him next week.
I completed this figure several months ago, but life got busy. One week of not posting turned into two, turned into three and so on. It's so much quicker to just post to Facebook, but I do need a place to organise my images in such a way that people can easily locate the work.
Again, this is Myrianna from Red Box Games sculpted by Tre Manor. The detail is exquisite on this tiny figure and the casting is flawless. Quite a joy to paint.
I have three other figures from Red Box Games that are painted and photographed. They should be posted tomorrow.
