This past week I worked on Ursula, Dwarven Bear Rider, which was released as part of the Bones 2 Expansion 2 set. I didn’t get that set originally, and picked up this figure from a friend who had. I selected her to paint this past week, as I wanted her to be the Dwarven Commander in a game I’m running at next month’s Historicon gaming convention.
I prepped this 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 trimmed the figure’s integral base a little and then glued the figure to a black-primed 1.5" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue. I then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I began by painting the armor Ceramcoat “Black”; and when it was dry, I drybrushed the armor with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”. After that, I painted the bear with Crafter’s Edition “Cinnamon Brown”.
I then painted her face with Americana “Shading Flesh”, and her hair with Ceramcoat “Maple Sugar Tan”. Next, I painted the saddle and girth with Americana “Bittersweet Chocolate”, and her pants with Americana “Khaki Tan”. After that, I did her boots and the fur at the top of her cape with Accent “Real Umber”, and the painted the tops of her boots with Americana “Terra Cotta”.
I’m really amazed at how this came out. This may be my new favorite figure; not only is it a super-cool sculpt, but I think I did a pretty good job with it as well. I only wish she had a whole unit of Bones bear-mounted Dwarven women to command!
