The Free Lance Stringer is the HVT that comes in the Dire Foes pack 6. She’s a very sleek looking miniature and will be a blast to paint. Here’s her just as a primed miniature. This post contains everything from part one so I will skip the link back to it. As I did with my recent Yojimbo post I am combining all of my posts together from now on so that when I finally finish It will be one long post that goes from start to finish on the Miniature.
I wanted to start with the lowest parts of her so I painted her legs high heels and the crates she’s sitting on. These are all base costs. I applied a light wash on her legs to highlight the lines.
I decided to paint her dress purple. It was a bit on a whim, but I like how it’s turning out. This was just a base coat and a light wash again to make the lines stand out.
Next I added highlights to all of the raised surfaces. Such as the folds in her dress a little on her lap and a little on her breasts. I’m adding a front and back for this one.
Next I added color to the trim on her dress and the button. I did them the same pink as her gloves and shoes, but I don’t think it pops enough. All of the colors so far are kinda dark. I may change them to a really light yellow so that the buttons stand out much more.
I will need to work on her legs and arms next. I’m not sold on the gray color. I may change it to a pastel color that compliments the purple of her dress. I haven’t decided yet. Stay tuned next week for the next step in my progress on the Free Lance Stringer.
