So he just discovered Reaper Bones, and had bought a few minis that he thought might be the next hero he would play. He asked me if I would paint one or two of them.
His requests for this one was:
- Red hair.
- A paladin or calavier type character.
- Don't spend too long on it.
So I thought I would try my hand at doing a really fast paint. Turned out that was about 90 minutes. It was actually about 5 hours, but I only spent 90 minutes of that at the painting table or doing anything relating to the mini.
I didn't spend long trying to decide on colours, and I pretty much did base, wash, and then some selective highlights.
I also took this as an opportunity to play with colours. Such has what happens if you use a blue wash on iron, or green on leather and brass to give a slightly different look. At the end the sword looked really dull, so I gave it a very light yellow glaze and then re-highlighted the edge - to try to make it look like it was glowing with holy light.
All in all, I am pretty happy, considering I spent so little time on it.
