This week I worked on one of the elf figures from the Original 30 Bones set. I wasn't sure who this elf was, so I searched the Reaper store but couldn't find him anywhere. I finally resorted to doing a 'tag' search for "peacock" because of the bird on his shield, and that led me to this fellow: Turanil the Elf Paladin , who seems to be this fellow, but with the pose and armor changed a bit.
This turned out to be a very frustrating figure to paint because I found a lot of the detail was missing or too soft for me to interpret; and I had trouble figuring out the exact arrangement of belts and armor, as well as where some of the armor began and ended. There were also casting errors in his hands and there were different areas where the plastic material seemed to form creases within itself.
I began with the usual bath in soapy water, then I glued him to a black-primed fender washer. I wanted to try something different this time: black priming only part of the figure. So, I painted his armor and shield with black craft store acrylic and left his cape, hands, face and sword, all the natural Bones material.
