Varashia, Vale Archer Sergeant

Varashia, from Reaper's Warlord line sculpted by Werner Klocke.  Painted and sold in February of '12.

I just love this figure, she has that look like she's counting how many arrows she could put into your heart per second from 100 yards out...

The thing I remember most about this mini was having to repaint her cloak from the first version as I thought it was too busy.  Took about an entire day to redo it!  But in the end, she has a cloak any elf would be proud to sport.

Artemis from Hasslefree.  Resin, 40mm.  Painted in oils and sold in May of '08.

My first experiment with oil painting on minis.  The "large" scale of this piece was the excuse I was looking for at the time to see if I could paint a mini using oil.  Over an acrylic base of course, aint nobody got time for an oil basecoat!

Talisman Witch Elf

This Witch Elf mini is from the old days of gaming and is a classic by now for sure.  She's from the Talisman board game 3rd edition.  Painted and sold in May of '11.

I like to paint these old classics and try to make them really pop with a modern approach to applying paint.  On this piece, her hair...yeah.  That hair!   I'll probably end up painting this piece again because I'm painting all the old Talisman figures according to their traditional paint schemes on their character chards.  Big project but of course I will post the results of that here eventually!

Shaeress Nassanneth, Dark Elf Queen

Shaeress Nassanneth, Dark Elf Queen from Reaper's Dark Heaven line sculpted by Werner Klocke.

I painted Shaeress to be an ice queen in January of '12 and sold her in the same month.

If I paint this mini again, I will make her a proper dark elf, she's a very complex sculpt with multiple parts and I had to attach her arm with a resculpted shoulder to support the thin connection there.  That's why she has a 'puffy sleeve' style up there, that's all putty work to add support.
