Gallant

Painting process was nearly identical to Constance Blaize, except I used P3 Brass Balls for some of the metals, and to highlight some of the red-gold.  You can get a better sense of the base from Gallant than from Constance.

These two buddies will bring much warmth to my shelves.

Constance Blaize, Knight of the Prophet

Badger Metal Primer, Citadel Nuln Oil (Interesting thing I learned: even when shot through an airbrush, still pools like a wash).  Heavy drybrush of VMC Oiled Steel, then mixing in P3 Quicksilver (I think) and finally Vallejo Metal Medium I did lighter and lighter drybrushes.  Red Gold is Citadel Gehenna Gold over RMS Walnut Brown.  Blue is RMS Desert Blue (an amazing color) shadowed with RMS Indigo Blue and highlighted with RMS Aquamarine Blue and Pure White (I think these three colors must be related, because Desert Sky + Pure White was nearly indistinguishable from Aquamarine Blue at a certain ratio).

The base turned out so-so.  Clear plastic from a blister, backside painted so the upward facing portion is still glossy.   I put it on after I glued her to the base (big mistake).  I used a hex pattern stencil, but it looks more sci-fi than fantasy.  The lines are not as crisp as if I’d used contact paper.
