Thanks, meant to explain in the comments that the base is a small river rock I found digging around in a dry stream bed. I live in an area that has a lot of glacial shaping, till, ect. which makes for some very awesome rocks that aren't even from my area, some of them are from upper Michigan/ Canada!
I cheated and purchased the Dark Elf Skin tone from Reaper's Master Paint series, then darkened/lightened the color with Stone Gray and pure black. I also find the skin tone looks good if you want a more purple skin tone, I just add imperial purple.
I'm developing a range of bare bones miniatures games called One Pound Wargames. Our first game - a mech combat game - has just been released and I've got a couple more SF games lined up to follow it, but I'm about to put a fantasy skirmish game into beta testing.
A key principle behind 1£W is that players should be able to use miniatures from their existing collections, or buy miniatures they've always wanted an excuse to own, rather than pushing players to buy a specific range. I was going through Dark Sword's range the other day picking out pieces I thought would be good for playtesting it (the game currently has a working title of "Swords of Fire", but I really don't like the name, so we're trying to come up with a better one). I didn't spot this one, so I'll have to go and track it down.
That sounds awesome! I really like the idea of being able to incorporate any miniature line, this makes the game more fun, because, like you said, a gamer can pick their favorites and play. I have a whole mix of miniatures lines, I just buy ones I really like.
