A Wood Elf and a Shadow
Posted by MortiS-the-Lost –
Yea so this is another one of those posts where I've taken a couple of miniatures I've painted recently, set them up with some bits of my dungeon terrain, messed around shooting some pretty pictures and am now showing them off to you with the pretence that I'm writing a painting and modelling article by adding a few lines of text about the miniatures.
The Elf is a Citadel Plastic Wood-Elf from the mid-90's which became the victim of a head-swap conversion to make it more individual, the new head came from a slightly more recent 40k plastic Eldar Guardian sprue. Although the conversion was done many years ago, the model was painted only last week because I used it as demonstration model while teaching our newest group member Joe (PrinceSnowHawk) the basics of painting - you'll notice the colour scheme is the same as Joe's first painted miniature, his unnamed Ranger
As you can hopefully see, the colours are mostly browns to fit with the ranger concept for Joe's figure and browns aren’t interesting enough to write too much about - the green of the cloak however is a little more interesting, we started with Citadel Dark Angels Green and highlighted up through a mixture of Dark Angels Green and Emerald Green to Pure Emerald Green (ok maybe it's not that interesting) - tell you what, if any of you are really interested in what paints I've used you can ask in the comments
The 'Shadow' (The Shadow? - The Shadow - The Shadow!) is a Wraith from the D&D 'Adventure board-game' - I'm sure some of you reading this will have recognised it already, but here's another picture of it anyway.
The paint job on this one was ultra simple due to the fact the whole thing is just one piece of swirling ghostly cloth on a plain base with a tomb stone on it - the figure it's self was dry brushed in Formula P3 Exile Blue over a black undercoat followed by a final highlight of Citadel Shadow Grey and the gravestone and base got standard rock and earth treatment. I think if and when I do another one of these figures I will add a little more detail to the base.
For the bonus picture this time I've included a Monster Card for the HeroQuest players reading - I have posted this on the forum before but I'm not sure if it's still up because it was part of a thread started by someone who quit the forum and deleted all their posts after I refused to debate evolution vs creationism with them over FaceBook. Anyway here's a the card (again) …
