Time for some minis!

I’ve been meaning to get a couple minis in before class starts up again in a few weeks. Since I can’t ever do something simple, how about a dual OSL whammy? Subject is a female human mage from Oathsworn Miniatures.

Just some base coats to get back into the swing of things…

Keeping it relatively simple…muted colors, yellowy lamp and blue flame. Also most likely just going to keep it on the simple old school base, don’t really want to get into basing. Keeping the focus on paint.

So this was another one of my experiments in trying to paint a tabletop quality mini. Overall I’m not too thrilled with it. The top highlight on the cloak in particular makes me itch. I painted her in about four hours at paint day and decided the cloak needed a lot more contrast at the last minute. I think I was thinking more about getting food at that point 🙂

I did learn a bit more about trying to maximize brushstrokes, and I also learned that I need to work a lot more with my paint consistency.

Anyway, here she is.

Ok, trying to pull the parts together for assembly.

After the failed polyshades attempt on the base, I sanded it and hit it with black spray primer and then spray varnish. Not perfect, but it works. Glued the “rocks” on.

Then I flipped the shield to paint the face, primed it black to speed things up a bit as it’ll be dark. A few layers of brown, a few layers of black and then the nmm steel from the armor. Once I varnish that it’s ready for assembly.
