Tin Man Miniatures Sisterhood Assassin 2

After a complete restart (rare for me), I finished up my first model from Tin Man Miniatures.  I don’t recall anyone of this description showing up in ERB’s Mars series, but it has been a long time since I read them.

I was super-excited to find a miniature with pigtails, and although red martians are supposed to have dark hair there was already so much dark on her that she needed something lighter.  After painting the hair, it was TOO light and drew way too much attention, so she needed something else to balance it out a bit – thus the periwinkle bikini.  I mean, once you’ve committed to wearing a mask/capelet/bikini combo, is coordinating color really a concern anymore?

The base is from Micro Arts Studios, skull pointed forward so we know she’s bad-butt.

The main thing that bother me about her is that she does not have the “butt-toothed vampire” thing going on on the rear of her thighs.  I used an airbrush to do the primary levels of skin highlighting, and it really stood out when I tried to paint the back of her legs with a brush.  I scraped it off and left it mostly alone.

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.

My FLGS had a clearance sale on some GW stuff, so I picked up a treeman ancient for a reasonable prince

Tin Man Miniatures Sisterhood Assassin 2 – Update 1

She is being painted up a red martian (Tin Man Minis are pretty obviously inspired by Edgar Rice Burrough’s Mars series), though the lighting makes her flesh appear a bit more normal [human] that it actually is.  It’s quite pink – I figured I could either go “pinkish” red or “orange/brown” red to get a red martian.  I actually checked Google Images for inspiration, but when I searched for Dejah Thoris, 90+% of the images just had normal human skintones.  Her sword is super narrow, and I will definitely bend it trying to paint the chest, so her arm stays off for now.

She has pigtails!  I’m super-excited about this.
