Maybe, but that would make her play Underworlds - I want to play Frostgrave  ;) Plus, the setting, I know that for sure, appeals to her far more than AoS. Though I do like the GW stuff, it IS kind of He-Man like and that's a bit too nerdy for her taste.

So, I haven't painted that much lately, but I gave the done minis a proper photojob and article. The first guy is the dwarf, continueing the story from the other articles so far (for the regular readers, the pieces will all form a bigger one, so you'll be able to read them in one go, like a book).

I've also experimented with snow and believe I've found the right looks for the base. As always, your feedback is appreciated.

I've finally gotten around to prep some articles for Frostgrave again, after a waaaay too busy start of the year. This one shows a couple of better pics of the dog and I'm trying to keep the format of the articles much shorter, to make them "more comfortable to consume".

Right now there are three more articles ready and will release over the next weeks, but what I'm really tackling at the moment is to paint up two lady wizards for Nick. Now I was thinking, should I post more small update, that essentially form up a step by step, or should I do it like I do currently, just release articles with the finished paintjob and the thought process behind it? Glad to hear your opinion on that.

Cheers
Dino

Work was incredibly demanding recently and it feels like ages that I've touched a mini, but I've finally come around to start my work on the female wizards for Nick.

I am what could be described as an "area painter". I always choose one certain space on the miniature, like the skin, a robe or anything like that, and finish it off completely. It's rarely neccessary for me to go back to a spot that I've worked on before.

Might change with this mini though, as I want to push myself a little and give Gordula a look that matches her story. She's a witch (who would've thought) in service of a king (oh...who WOULD have thought...). So I hope that my choice of colors will give her a nicely civilized look, while keeping the mysterious haggy touch of a typical witch.

I am undecided on her little cat homunculus though - grey with black stripes, or black with yellow eyes...

Gorgeous work really something to aspire to if my eyes and shaky hands don't give up on me :)

I like the grey with black stripes and yellow eyes ... every witch has a black cat ... kinda boring.

It's this "every witch has a black cat" thing, that kind of makes me tend towards it. I am going with a very good guy look, so I'd like the model to be recognized as a witch.

But...I also kind of love grey cats with black stripes. Well, anyway, I made a little bit of progress yesterday and maybe I'll get another hour or two to paint tonight again.

This is starting to mutate into a little step-by-step...the base color for the under dress was Sombre Grey. I love that color...just goeas so well with many things.

Now another question for color choices....(yeah I know, not decided on the cat yet too...): the little bags and pouches. All brown, or different colors? I remember playing World of Warcraft ages ago and I really liked when I could expand my baggage with additional little bags. I noticed, that they all had different colors and I kind of liked the idea. Maybe the front puch in a very brwonish dark red?

And here I thought the hat and the staff were enough to mark her as a witch ...
As for the bags and pouches, if you keep her clothes plain and simple, specks of color might lighten the mini up, imho. So I say, go for it. Have bright red, leather colored and what-not colored bags.

Very nice. Love the dog.

Ups ... my bad. Sorry. I was all focused on the witch and cat. But yes - it is a nice dog.
