This past week I painted Balazar, Iconic Summoner, from the Bones 2 Heroes II set. I needed a Halfling cleric for a game I'm running at the upcoming Fall-In gaming convention, and this was the closest thing I had on hand. I thought he certainly looked the part of a Halfling religious figure all decked put in his ceremonial robes. Maybe not the best outfit for adventuring, but the rules of his order must be adhered to! :)
I prepped the 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 it. The figure is sculpted with a big long mustache, which didn't look very Halfling-like to me; so after washing and drying the figure, I very carefully trimmed off the facial hair with my hobby knife. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I then went back and painted the fittings on the staff and dagger sheath with Ceramcoat "Bronze", and then highlighted with Ceramcoat "14K Gold". Lastly, I painted the figure's integral base with the "Bittersweet Chocolate".
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
