Lady Scientist (Mad?), Newest Swordswoman!!
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:18:22 PM »
Lady Scientist with a Tesla or Arc pistol. The mini is from Reaper's Chronoscope line and was a hoot to paint. I'm painting up an all Women's Company for IHMN, so far I've got 7 painted.

Thanks for the kind words has.been! Here are the rest of the painted company. I have 2 swordswomen in the painting queue and I am looking for the right fig to complete the set. The minis were collected from several companies and over many years.

If you look on my recent post (Galactic Heroes) Pictures taken with the
benefit of a Chris Foss posters as backgrounds. Look at the one with a
female on top of an ancient dead tree (actually an old root dug up from
Flatpacks garden). I think she would do for your group. The problem is
it was a gift from Vodkafan & I do not know the manufacturer. I will
try & ask him (if he doesn't notice this post that is).

Vodkafan has answered. Gov. Gen. you were right, it was a North Star promo. fig.
I don't know if anyone out there has an unwanted one for you. It might be worth
giving it a go.

Thanks has.been for looking into that figure's source! Swordswoman. The mini is from Miniatures Figurine  Regency Zombie Hunter line. She's part of my Women's IHMN company. It's a hefty piece of lead, simple sculpt reminds me of my youth when Mini Figs was one of the only sources available for miniatures. I tried a lot of blue washes and lighter blue dry brushing. The dress, gloves and shoes were finished with an acrylic paint called White Pearl, I tried to make it look like satin or silk. Heroic scale in the 3rd pic you can see how it sizes up to Ironclad's Mina Harker.

Nwest Swordswoman! The figure is from Mini Figs part of their Regency Zombie Hunter line. Heroic scale 30mm. It is a simple sculpt so I tried some things to make it pop. I'm not entirely sure it worked but one should attempt new things. The second pic are my Victorian Swordswomen (and one axe maiden). They were part of the Locksley Hall Intricate Craft Circle but are now part of the Locksley Hall Intricate Craft Circle politely requests women's Suffrage.
