Duelling Gamers: The joys of painting a character model.

Week two is now complete and so finally is my Spellsinger, The spellsinger has been a WIP for the better part of 6 weeks now, one figure should not have consumed so much of my time, but I have found it especially hard to get the colors right on her and I have learned the lesson in the past not to rush a scheme if I am not happy with it, but as of this moment I am happy with the final result so without further delay I present my magical buff machine.(Lore as yet undecided, name as yet undecided, fluff as yet undecided. Small steps small steps...)

  1. Pics a bit blurry but the Autumn scheme is working for me.

  2. When I saw the title of the post, I thought this was going to be about what a relief it was to be painting a character instead of masses of regular guys. Normally I find characters to be a nice break from grinding out units.

    I think she looks pretty good, but it's a bit hard to tell with the pics.

  3. Thanks guys, the pictures as always need to be improved. My wife is on the case with that so with luck i will be able to present better quality pictures for what is a visual medium of communication after all.

    I had though of talking about the relief of painting just one figure instead of regiments, but decided against it as with this spellsinger i didn't feel that way as she has been on the painting desk for around 6 weeks and this time i did not get that feel, although in the past i have had the feeling in spades.

    Cheers for the comments guys.

  4. Yep hordes of troops gets you gaming but the characters are the real eye candy at times. Mind you siting on your desk for a mere 6 weeks, there are 4 year old projects that sat on the desk and then the box and then the desk again only to find a box once more so I think your timing is fine hahahaha.

    1. The first rule of Procrastination Club is that you don't talk about Procrastination Club.
