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. 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 let everything dry for a while, and then gave the face and hands a coat of Citadel "Reikland Fleshshade" wash. When that was dry, I gave the clothing, scabbards, and shield, all a coat of Citadel "Nuln Oil" wash. Lastly, I gave her hair a coat of Citadel "Agrax Earthshade" wash.
Next, I highlighted her waist drape with some of the base color "Wedgewood Blue" mixed with some Crafter's Acrylic "Dark Turquoise". I also highlighted the shield with Crafter's Acrylic "Tropical Blue". After that, I highlighted his boots and scabbards with the Reaper MSP "Tropical Blue", and then used Americana "Snow White" to paint the decoration on the shield, and highlight the border.
I then moved on to the metallics, painting the sword with the "Gunmetal Grey", and then doing highlights with the "Mithril Silver". Lastly, I painted the base with Americana "Mississippi Mud".
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".
I'm pleased with how she came out considering she got a very rushed job done on her. She performed well in the game however, helping to defeat a Giant that was allied with a squad of Dwarves which blocked the road down which she and her company were trying to advance.
|As requested, here is a photo of the shield. It was rushed, so doesn't look its best this close up. :)|
