Ice Queen for an icy day...


There was a certain amount of irony painting this figure on one of the coldest June days ever.  She is for the "Painting the Blues Away" video.  I suppose that is somewhat obvious!

This is another miniature where the painting of the base is a big part of the action.  The idea was to be able to show as many shades of blue as possible.  Running the gamut from purple/blue to a seafoam teal, I packed all sorts of blue shades into this figure.

The ice block was perfect for this!


The figure if from Reaper Miniatures, and the base is part of the Groundwerks line that I sculpted for Cool Mini or Not.  I put a coat of gloss on the ice, just for fun.  It added a bit of textural difference, which helped to distinguish the base a little more...


More on the way!  Stay tuned!

And by the way... this is post number 1300!!  Not bad since February 3rd of last year ;-)

  1. Nice - that paint job just blue me away! Har har!

    In all seriousness, the various blue tones are amazing, that's beyond miniature painting and into high art right there, man. Exemplary work!
