Lady Lupa - Part II

I finished up Lupa's skin and hair last night. I still see a few places in these pics that I want to go back to.



I also painted up her skirt, shirt (although those highlights are pretty much washed out), leather and brass too.




The fur, and wrappings are next, as well as the hammer.





I tried something new on the hammer, some high contrast metal. I'm not happy with it. Pointers/comments/thoughts?

Man O' War, Epic and More!

I've been painting, but slacking on the picture-taking front. I've mostly been working on Wrath of Kings Zeti for a paining competition at my FLGS. They're nearly done, so pics up soon. In the meantime, enjoy some shots from this past weekend's games day.

Like Sparticus, Just with Less Dong

I picked up an Arena Rex starter at CaptainCon this past weekend, along with two gladiators. One was Lupa, the Kickstarter limited edition figure. Apparently the game's company is having a painting competition at Adepticon, so I thought I'd try my hand at painting her. The figure's pretty nicely cast, I only had to do some light line filing and puttying to get her ready for paint.



I was going to use the original base (along with a washer underneath for weight) put went with a 30mm Renedra one instead. The flatter bases don't break the game's immersion as much for me.



The flesh is pretty much done I think, I might touch up a few things now thanks to the macro-shots but I'm pretty happy with it overall. The hair was a happy accident. I got some flesh wash on the white primed hair and thought it looked a lot like red hair. So I did the whole thing ad I'm not disappointed. I'll highlight it next and then start in on the leathers.
