Monday Miniatures: Shaeress
Is this week’s model a sorceress? A demon? A queen? A martial artist? I don’t know for sure, but I love how many different takes this week’s artists had on it.
Nothing new on the crowd funding front to report. I would like to know how many of my readers backed the Bones 2 project. So many of the really exciting minis from bones 1 have been done. Maybe we should switch when they ship. Thoughts?
I went for a royalish demon queen sort of vibe. I thought the copper came out well, and though the red undertones in the gown didn’t come through with the camera, it’s still blended well. As several painters mentioned in their emails – the detail on this one was particularly bad.
Arjen chose to go with a drow, and tried out some new techniques. I think this mini came out very painterly.
Antonia made a Darksun mini. I love the undead addition as bright contrast to an otherwise dark color scheme.
Jo also went with a Drow theme. I really love how different the same miniature can be, even when two painters go in a similar direction, they end up in totally different places.
Jessi went Wuxia, and made this modeal a martial artist. Anime eyes and painted on abs are the highlights on this particular model.
Magnus sends in a late entry, painting it to match an earlier figure. Was that sneer intentional, or a quirk of the brush?

I was emailed a couple of suggestions last week – but the reaper website was down. Please continue to send me your suggestions. I’d like to keep these posted at least a month out.
