Summary

I’ve been wanting to paint this miniature for a while now. Baught it a long time ago and I’ve noticed that I’ve been doing a lot of Games Workshops minis lately, so I decided to change it up a bit. So far, I think this model has had the most flowing fabric. I also intentionally decided to give her black hair because I hadn’t done it yet… More on that in the “what I learned” section…

What I Learned/What I’d Do Differently

Two major things I’d change… The hair, and the white dress. I would like for the paints to make a smoother transition for the highlights on the hair and I’d probably do it by making a glaze with Heavy Blue and maybe mixing a more blue grey for the finer highlights in the hair.

As per the dress, Should have thinned the white paint more for the fine highlights. Simple as that.
