This past week I painted Bergamot, Halfling Scout, from the Bones 4 Dreadmere Expansion.
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 black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I began by painting his face and feet with Reaper MSP “Rosy Flesh” before I realized I hadn’t taken a beginning “blank canvas” photo.
I then painted his pants Accent “Real Umber”, and his shirt with Apple Barrel “Lemon Chiffon”. I wasn’t sure about the pleats in his pants and whether they were supposed to be armor…they looked like armor, but I thought it odd for him to just be wearing leg armor. For the time being I painted them like some sort of fancy pants. 🙂 I also painted his vest with Pathfinder MSP “Urgathoa Red”
Next, I painted his cape with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, and his hair (head and feet) with Americana “Asphaltum”. After that, I painted his sword belt with Americana “Light Cinnamon”, and his gauntlet with Americana “Faun”.
I then painted the scabbard with Americana “Cranberry Wine”, and the metal fittings on it and the belt with Americana “Zinc”. After that, I painted the lamp with Accent “Golden Oxide”, and the grip on the sword with Americana “Raw Umber”.
Next, I pained the metal parts of the sword and belt with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”, and the lamp and vest buttons with Folk Art “Brushed Metal "Brushed Bronze”. I let the paint dry for a while, and then I began with the washes. First I applied a coat of Citadel “Reikland Feleshade” wash to the face and feet. When that was dry, I applied Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” to the rest of the figure.
When all the washes were dry, I began work on the face, painting the eyes and then highlighting all the skin with Reaper MSP “Rosy Highlight”. After that I highlighted the hair with Americana “Sable Brown”, and then a little of the “Faun”.
I then highlighted his cape using first Folk Art “Butter Pecan”, and then mixing in a little Americana “Bleached Sand” in to the “"Butter Pecan”. I then used the “Bleached Sand” to highlight his gauntlet. After that, I highlighted his shirt with the base “Lemon Chiffon”, and I highlighted his vest and the scabbard with some Americana “Burgundy Wine”, mixd with a hint of Crafter’s Acrylic “Tutti Frutti”.
I’m very happy with how this fellow turned out. He’s a great little figure and full of character.
