WIP: Reaper Aina Female Valkyrie
This is another model I washed with GW Camoshade to start, just like Devona Female Mage. The green “underpainting” didn’t seem to accomplish much on this model, but I bet if it had been done in white/grey/black it would have been far more effective. You can see in this picture how the skirt looked after one color was applied.
I decided she needed flaming red hair, and I highlighted the skirt using super-thin layers of paint (about 6 parts water to 1 part paint). This allowed me to go straight to using my highlight color instead of mixing several intermediary colors, and still make smooth color transitions.
Next, I base-coated the metal VMA Aluminum.
Next, the areas that were to be gold or bronze were washed repeatedly with GW Seraphim Sepia.
I then washed all the silver with a thinned-down RMS Blue Liner, painted a design on the shield with RMS Blue Liner, and then glazed the design with a very thin VMA Aluminum. Next, the design was lined with the RMS Blue Liner.
Next, since I wanted the belt to be an aged bronze to break up all the gold, I washed it with a thinned-down RMS Blue Liner.
After that there was a little more detail work, and here is where she stands now:
Soon I will finish up a few more details, build her a base, and varnish her, then she will be for sale!
