Halfling Cook: Bones 3 Figure

Chris Palmer

     This past week I painted the Halfling Cook from the Bones 3 Townsfolk set. 
     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 7/8" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue.   And, when the glue was dry,  I put it in my Citadel painting grip.

      I began by painting his head, arms, and feet with Americana “Shading Flesh”.   I then painted his shirt with Accent “Mustard Seed”, his pants with Accent “Real Umber”, and his vest with Ceramcoat “Black Cherry”.

     Next, I painted his apron and hat with Americana “Dove Grey”.  I then did his hair with Crafter’s Edition “Spice Brown”, and his spoon with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”.  After everything had a while to dry, I went back and went over his head and feet with a wash of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash.

    When that wash was dry, I then gave a wash to all his clothing and the spoon with Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash.   After I let this second wash I dry, I painted his eyes, and then highlighted his skin areas with a mix of the “Shading Flesh”, and some Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”.    Afterwards, I highlighted his hair with Americana “Sable Brown”, and the spoon with Americana “Khaki Tan”.

     Next, I highlighted his hat and apron with a mix of the “Dove Grey”, and Americana “Snow White”.   I then highlighted his shirt with a mix of the base “Mustard Seed”, and some Crafter’s Acrylic “Bright Yellow”,and then did the highlights on his vest with some Reaper MSP “Holly Berry”.  I followed that with highlighting his pants with Folk Art “Teddy Bear Brown”. 
    I then worked on the pot, painting it first Americana “Black”, and then painting the soup with Folk Art “Porcelain White”.  When the “Porcelain White” was dry, I gave it a wash with some Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash.  When the wash was dry, I added a few highlight dots to the soup with the base “Porcelain White”.    I then highlighted the pot with some Americana “Zinc”. I finished up by painting the base with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.
       I let the figure sit all day, and that evening I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.  The next afternoon I gave the figure a coat of Testor’s “Dullcote” spray varnish.

   A fun little figure; nothing to get excited about, but I’m pleased with how he came out.

    Looks great! In Blood Bowl, you can purchase a “Halfling Chef” during a match to help you out. This would be a great mini for that purpose!

  2. Nice job Chris. You could use him in Frostgrave as a decoy!
