The first of the new resin minis from Soda Pop Miniatures that I got my hands on, Princess Malya is a beautiful sculpt and fun to paint. I agonized over the last little bit, and between never getting to play Relic Knights and this model’s rules being garbage, she slept on the shelf of shame, waiting for her Prince Charming to show up. I finally finished her off last month, so she can join Mr. Tomm, who’s been done for a year now.
In case the inspiration isn’t obvious, I’ve based her paint job on Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. The base is one of my favorite parts, and I love how it came out – you can even see a bit of reflection in some shots. I definitely got fed up with the dress at points, and just had to leave it in order to move on, but overall am fairly happy. The white in particular, I probably could have redone it using some of the tips from Jen Greenwald’s class that I took last year.
I’ve been painting recently, but I haven’t taken any pictures in a while. Rather than post nothing, I’ll post crappy pictures of stuff that’s currently on my table.
Relic Knights – Princess Malya Questing Knight (and base)
Relic Knights – Mr. Tomn (Malya’s cypher, he’s done, just waiting on Malya)
Tin Man Minis – Sisterhood Assassin
My FLGS had a clearance sale on some GW stuff, so I picked up a treeman ancient for a reasonable prince
Relic Knights – Cosplay Candy (as Chun Li)
Kingdom Death – Survivor Candy (Soda Pop Minis/Kingdom Death crossover mini)
Betty is done! I’m not calling this “complete” until Lug is also done, but here she is to show off.
The sealer is doing the “I’m going to make your pictures look terrible” thing again, even though you can’t really see those speckles in person.
I’m thrilled with how the freehand came out, and I can’t wait to get her out on the table. It will be a little while though, because at minimum, I need to finish Lug and a knight (probably Questing Malya).
I got the rest of the freehand done on Betty’s boots and jumpsuit, and I am really happy with how it came out. I started in on some of the other detailing of the jumpsuit, using the studio model for help. (I put a gloss sealer over the freehand since I don’t want to have to redo it)
