This past week I painted Merrowyn Lightstar, Female Elf Paladin, from the Bones 4 Original Core Set. Like last week’s figure, I needed this elf to act as a commander for a game I was going to be doing at the Fall-In convention this past weekend.
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 started by painting the figure entirely with Ceramcoat “Black”. When the Black was dry, I drybrushed the figure with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”. I then passed over it with a lighter drybrush of Citadel “Mithril Silver”.
Next, I painted the face and hands with Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”, and then the cloth with Americana “Wedgewood Blue”. I then painted the scabbards, and belts with Americana “True Blue”, and the sword blade with Americana “Zinc”. After that, I painted the shield with Reaper MSP Bones “Tropical Blue”, and the back of the shield with Crafter’s Acrylic “Navy Blue”. I then did her hair with Americana “Light Cinnamon”, and the sword grip with Americana “Asphaltum”. I also painted the border of the shield with Americana “Grey Sky”, and did the metal canister at her waist with Reaper MSP “Aged Pewter”.
I let everything dry for a while, and then gave the face and hands a coat of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash. When that was dry, I gave the clothing, scabbards, and shield, all a coat of Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash. Lastly, I gave her hair a coat of Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash.
When the washes all were dry, I painted her eyes using the “True Blue”, and then highlighted her skin with an unnamed Reaper Sample paint I have. After that, I highlighted her hair, first with the some Americana “Sable Brown” and then with some Americana “Fawn”.
