I had a lot of fun painting this figure from Twisted Game, called Nightengale.
Everywhere I looked, there were all kinds of amazing details, such as the filligre on the apron. I didn't put any additional freehand on this piece so that people could see it was part of the actual sculpt.
The metal wings were a nice area to offer a bit of contrast, and reflect the light of the lamp. This meant that I could do the cool vs warm color contrasts as well.
The base is from the Secret Weapon series. I wanted to keep this base as close to the bases you see in the game play images, but this one in particular allowed me to do something for the first time. As you can see in these images, I was able to reflect the lamp light in the ripples of the water.
In all my years of basing and painting, I had yet to try something like that.
Yes indeed, it's never too late to try something new. I'm just glad that I'm getting a chance to paint these fantastic miniatures!
Here's a link to the kickstarter itself, where you have the options of rules, unit cards, and even wonderful terrain pieces!
