A Brunette...a Princess...

This time a strange painting work for our collection.
In these days commission works are mainly Napoleonics and SYW,
so I needed a "painting escape".
I also used these miniatures, Princess and her minions, to test some new colours 
and washings...so for your curiosity here are some pics of
this brunette Princess from the Hell Dorado range... :-)

The Princess...



Her minions...


And the complete band...

Happy Wargaming to All!

  2. Hey there,

    Remember you ran a competition back last year, where you offered to paint a few minis for me, I posted them out to you in December, and i was just wondering if you ever recieved them, or if they have dissappeared in shipping. Any info you have would be great!

  4. Oooh she's gorgeous! I'd like to know how you got the fabric to look almost transparent. The horse is magnificent and her familiars are way cool.

    I'm doomed I tell you, doomed!

    1. A gorgeous brunette ;-)

      For the transparent fabric paint the skin tones as usual and then use small amount of washing on the skin. In this case I preferred a simple transparent effect with two white washings. Or you can apply only one layer of washing to increase the "nude effect" and then paint some embroidered motif...

      And thank you for your words :-)

      By the way...a doomed Irish woman?...Impossible :-)

    2. This is a technique that I really want to get a handle on as I want to use it in future to paint some silk stockings on a figure (not on my piece for our duel). I've got Little Miss Muffet and a Fraulein Bar Wench that have stockings and they would look good done with this kind of technique.

      Oh yeah, I plan on losing this contest, but I plan on having fun while I do it. I'll have to get with you and Paul to set a date and basic rules for the competition. I'll need till the middle of August as I'm working on 2 competition figures right now. Can I reach you via Facebook PM?

    3. A blonde Fraulein coming soon on your blog pages? :-)

      The technique is not difficult. You have to take care of the washing layers.

      Middle of August is good for me and sure, you can reach me via FB PM ;-)
