Covering new ground

Here's another one of the Dark Sword miniatures that was used in the "How to cover a broccoli base" series of posts.

It was a fun exercise in muted colors, and balancing the browns vs greens.  Grey was used as a "go between" color, to make it easier in blending those two together.

Also, this was my first chance to try out the new foliage that I brought back from Reapercon.  I really loved it!  Not only did it mimic the colors I painted on the figure, the leaves were light enough to stand out against the shadow areas of the cloak!

The individual leaves are very nice... actually shaped like real leaves, with a touch of the veins in the lighter ones.
