WIP Reaper Finari

Here are more WIP pictures of Finari! I’ve not been able to work on her so much in the last week or so because of the Kitsune, but now that that is done I think Finari will be the next finished. I worked on making her teal armor appear shinier, and I’ve worked on the NMM gold as well. I’m really enjoying the gold now that I’ve moved away from using a series of brown-ish colors. My colors on this NMM gold are a deep purple (VGA Hexed Lichen), a slightly earthy red (VMC Cavalry Brown), a greenish yellow ochre (VMC Khaki Grey), a pale yellow (VMC Golden Yellow), and my usual almost-white “white” (VMC Ivory).

I feel like the gold is way more interesting. Also, in the case of this overall scheme, it plays off the purple cloak and teal armor very nicely.

I’m still figuring out what I want to do with that cross on the back of her cloak, so it is nowhere near finished.

Here’s another WIP shot of Finari. I will probably work on the cloak some more, but I’m really loving these colors!

WIP and wet palette

Some Reaper Bones Dark Elves and a Reaper Finari on the way! I just switched to a wet palette, and I like it a lot more than the well right now. It definitely takes some getting used to, but we’re getting into summer here and it’s HOT. We keep the house warm to save on utilities, and my painting desk is in the room with the worst A/C, so it’s always several degrees warmer in here. 81 in here today while it’s 90 outside! That’s making my paint dry out FAST, hence the wet palette switch.

WIP Wrath of Kings Goritsi Zeti

Here are some quick shots of a very WIP Wrath of Kings Goritsi Zeti vampire chick. I do wish the details on this model were a little less…soft. I’m having a horrible time picking colors on this model, and I really don’t know why. I started out with a strong idea of what colors to use, and somehow it didn’t work out. Hopefully she will come together in the end!

Reaper Mocking Beast 77048

I painted this as my entry into this year’s Wyrd Iron Painter Challenge. It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I hope to be doing many more display models like it in the future!

Privateer Press Circle of Orboros Warpwolf Stalker

This was another recent commission to go along with the Riphorn Satyr. I’m glad to have been able to paint this model and the Satyr so I have some idea about what they are like while I make plans for my own Circle of Orboros army as I’ll probably include both models in my list options.

Reaper Cinderella 50284

This model was an experiment in new things to me – sparkly cloth, sheer cloth, making butterflies, magic effects, painting crystal. I’m considering changing the colors of the butterflies to pink and yellow. I made them blue because I wanted them to be part of the magic dress transformation. The sheer cloth was simpler than I imagined, but I’m sure there are much more challenging situations for it. I also really enjoyed painting all those dots…even though there are a million of them…and they made my hand cramp from holding the brush funny…

WIP Reaper Cinderella 50284

More pics of the awesome Cinderella. I’m just really enjoying having a chance to paint with no specific scheme for this model…just letting it flow how it seems it should as I paint. Also, my experimentation with see-through clothing and sparkly clothing has been fun and enlightening.

I love this model so far. Here are some very WIP phone pictures of her while my hand un-cramps from all the sparkle dots…

GW Ogre Firebellies

These Firebellies were ordered a month ahead of my deadline for painting them, which should have been enough time….right? Well due to GW taking their sweet time, some unseasonable ice and snow, and just general shipping issues the models didn’t arrive until after lunch the day of my deadline. Needless to say, that was a problem! Somehow, I got them done in time, however, but I’m going to have to remember this the next time I have to order Finecast from GW on a deadline…

Anyways, here they are! Just a basic Standard level paint job with OSL, but I think the effect brings a lot to them!
