This past week I painted up the Imrijka, Iconic Inquisitor, figure from the Bones II Pathfinder Heroes set. I believe this figure is supposed to represent a half-orc character, but I chose to paint it up as a half-elf female instead. So, the first thing I did was very carefully try to slice off the fangs. What I couldn’t get off with a hobby knife due to the cramped area under her hat, I hoped to disguise with paint.
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it. I then glued the figure to a white-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.
There was something about her outfit that read Old West Cowboy to me; so I decided I would go with that kind of earth-tone palette for this figure.
I began painting by doing all the figure’s armor with Black; then when the Black was dry, I drybrushed the armor with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”. I then passed over the armor with a lighter drybrush of Folk Art “Silver Sterling”.
Next, I painted her skin with Americana “Shading Flesh”, and then painted her pants with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”. I then painted her bodice top with Americana “Bleached Sand”, and then painted her loin cloth with Folk Art “Poppy Seed”. My next step was to paint her coat with Folk Art “Teddy Bear Brown”.
I then painted her eyes and lips; and then highlighted all her skin with a mix of the “Shading Flesh” and some Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”. After that, I highlighted her hair (and added eyebrows) with, first, Ceramcoat Maple Sugar Tan", and then, Apple Barrel “Lemon Chiffon”. I then highlighted her top with Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”.
