This past week I painted the “Dark Elf Priestess” from the Bones 4 Darkreach 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 brown-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I forgot to take a beginning photo of the figure, so here is a shot from the Reaper online store.
I began by painting all the armor with Ceramcoat “Black”. When dry, I drybrushed the armor with Folk Art Color Shift “Black Flash”. When the “Black Flash” was dry, I went over it again with a light drybrush of Reaper MSP “Aged Pewter”. After that I painted the face, knees, and hands with Reaper MSP “Dark Elf Skin”.
Next, I highlighted the robe with the “Holly Berry”, then mixed a little Reaper MSP “Brest Cancer Awareness Pink” in to do some lighter highlights. I then highlighted the cape using a mix of the base “Charcoal, mixed with some Americana "Zinc”, and then did lighter highlights with just the “Zinc’. After that, I highlighted the triangular hangings on her front with a mix of the "Charcoal” and some Citadel “The Fang”. I then highlighted her pouch and belt, as well as the handle of the mace, with some Crafter’s Acrylic “Cool Blue” mixed with some of the “Black”.
