A couple weeks ago, I constructed a new Illusionist Apprentice for my Frostgrave warband, by converting the Bones II Highlander Heroine figure. I finally got around to painting it this week. Being an Illusionist, I wanted to try for a very bright and colorful outfit.
Then I moved to the staff, highlighting the shaft with Crafter's Acrylic "Cinnamon Brown". I highlighted all the wraps with a mix of the base "Holiday Green", and Nicole's "Neon Green". I highlighted the beads with the base colors I had used on them. I then painted the orb with Folk Art Pearl "Aqua Moire". I added a little white to the "Aqua Moire", and did some highlights on the orb.
Next, I worked on the metals, painting the head of the staff, the buckler and other discs on her outfit, and the clasp in her hair with "Ceramcoat "Bronze". I then did highlights on these areas with Ceramcoat "14K Gold".
Lastly, I painted her base White.
When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" early the next morning. Midday, I flocked the white areas with Woodland Scenics "Snow" flock and the next morning I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
And here Leighlyndana is with my Illusionist Kodak. For a brief story of their first meeting, see A New Apprentice.
