Silent Step by MiniatureMistress Silent Step by MiniatureMistress
Meet my fiancee's drow ranger, who always seems to get into trouble by rushing headlong into any room we have the chance to enter. Never a dull dungeon run...

Wow, this is really beautiful! O_O Who does it looks so good? I mean, it has many different and intense colours, that I think SHOULD look bad if I used all of them at once...but nope .

:D I think it works because of his skin color, and the fact that I like blue, I would paint blue on everything if I could!

Wow very nice... his face looks fantastic and I love the ground he is on. As well the bright colors off-set his dark skin nicely :D

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!

What colours did you use for the skin?
Reply
:iconminiaturemistress:
MiniatureMistress Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
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 tend to use a black base coat with indigo highlights and a purple wash.
This makes for a very dark skin but just like you I feel the purple tone is appropriate.

Oh yes, I used a black primer for this one, I really like the more purple skin tones, I've seen drow with gray skin tones, too. Guess I went with more neutral for this one.

Black primer = free shading. :D
Perfect for lazy painters like myself, haha.

The color scheme is very unique. Don't see many drow in aquamarine!

Well, you know, I guess he's a "good" drow, he travels in our group full of humans, but we do have to smuggle him into cities!

Or you could convince the humans that he's really a doppelganger in disguise as a drow. That might result in some nasty escapades though!

Trust me, we have to keep a close eye on him, otherwise he's bond to stir up trouble, but a doppelganger is a funny thought.

Lovely mini - makes a great drow. He'd be a fab mini for a game I'm working on...

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 1W 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! :D 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.

You must send me a Note with your email address, then. I'll include you in the playtesting. I'll be launching the beta test in a week or two.

Awesome job on the highlights. Especially the face. Very striking.
Where do you get those little leaves for the base?

Thanks, :D I picked up the leaves from Secret Weapon Miniatures at Gen Con, they have a website too.
