I enjoy coming across random challenges and contests on Instagram. They often prompt me to paint a mini that has been sitting around for years. This time it was the "Fabulous February Females" challenge.



I have dozens of cool female miniatures in the queue, so it was hard to pick. I settled on 'Jalara' from Tin Man Miniatures. She is from their Barsoom style setting... which usually implies scant clothing. Not sure if she is a proxy for a character from the John Carter series.

I also painted up the latest miniature from Hydra, the leader of the Imperial Faction... Marduk.





a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Magnificent work as always Matt.  The skin tones contrasted with the blacks are really fantastic.

Do you over paint the tufts you use or are the ones on Jalara that color out of the box?

Thanks!

I picked up some 'Alien Tufts' a couple months ago from GamersGrass. Kinda neat but they don't fit very many of my projects ;)

True.  But for Star Wars or Martian landscapes those would work nicely.

I like Marduk especially. Great work on the blacks and the skin tones.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.
