This week I also painted the Female Elf Rogue from the Dragons Don’t Share Set. If ever there was a figure destined to be used for Frostgrave, this is it; posed as she is, nimbly climbing down a pile of ruins with a skeleton laying half buried nearby.
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 washers 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.
I began by painting the ruins on the base with Americana “Neutral Grey”. I then painted her outfit with Crafters Edition “Navy Blue”, and then her face and hands with Crafters Edition “Flesh”.
Next, I gave the ruins on the base a wash with GW “Badab Black” wash using a wet brush. When this was dry, I painted the figure’s boots, arm guards, pouches and belts with Black. I then drybruhed all the blue and black parts with Folk Art “Settlers Blue”.
I worked on the ruins some more at this point, drybrushing them first with Crafters Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”, and then with Folk Art “Platinum Grey”. Then I painted her hair with Anita’s “Burnt Sienna”, and the grips on her weapons with Americana “Asphaltum”. Next, I painted the skeleton head and hand with Americana “Buttermilk”, and what appeared to be a sleeve and shoulder of a garment with Folk Art “Dapple Grey”. I then gave a wash to her head, hair, hands, and the skeleton and his partial garment, using GW “Agrax Earthshdae”, using a wet brush. I then painted her shoulder guards and the studded band on her boots with Ceramcoat “Metallic Pewter”, and the blades on the two weapons with Folk Art “Gun Metal Grey”. Before I moved on to the highlighting, I gave her shoulder pads a quick wash with the “Badab Black”.
I’m really happy with how this figure turned out. I think she will make a great edition to a Frostgrave warband.
