Who despite being an absolutely beautiful sculpt, was an absolute pig to get a photo of that wasn't even worse than this one... For example, the axe head is actually shades of purple highlighted all the way up to Rotting Flesh, but it doesn't really show up here... Normally I'm not one for excessive gore on a miniature, but as she's carrying a severed head I got a little carried away using Blood for the Blood God (which comes up a little bright, I think I will probably go back to my old TCR and ink mix for blood effects in future...)
She's another miniature that I started painting a fair while back and kinda stalled on - at the start of December, she looked like this:
And that's how she stayed until a month ago, when I decided to crack on and actually get her finished (as she is the last mini needed for the D&D adventure that I wrote that we may end up at some point actually playing)! Her skin got completely repainted, as I couldn't get a 'deathly pale' tone that I was happy with. Not that I'm super happy with the current finish, but it's better than it was (and I didn't feel like stripping her and starting again!)
Other milestone reached: this is the first pair of naked miniature boobs I have painted. Is this what growing up feels like?
Gah, looking at these pics, maybe I'm getting worse at this whole painting malarkey in my old age...
Well, another finished miniature is another finished miniature though, which takes te tally to:
18 vs 19 = -1
So close! Unfortunately, my pot of Vallejo Smoke (that I use in painting every single miniature ever) is pretty much dry, so I may not actually be able to finish any miniatures until post-Salute, when the tally will take it's next hit...
