Making my way through the Fighters set, this week I painted Deenah the Female Barbarian. As I studied the figure, I wasn't sure what to make of the herringbone pattern on her skirt; was it supposed to be armored plates, or truly just a herring bone weave? I decided I would paint it like a tartan, so whatever it was supposed to be, would be disguised by the cross-checks of the tartan plaid. I also apparently was still on a bronze armor kick from last week's Dragonman, as all I could visualize her armor as being was bronze colored.
I prepped this figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I then glued the figure to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer's White Glue.
I let the figure sit overnight, and the next morning I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". Later that afternoon I flocked the base, and the following day I sprayed it with Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish.
