The Forsaken Lady


We had visitors this weekend so painting time has been limited. However, I couldn't let the beautiful weather go by without taking advantage and getting some models spray undercoated. Lylyth alt, Epic Lylyth, The Forsaken and a Warwitch Siren all got their undercoat sorted.


Yesterday afternoon I decided to press ahead with The Forsaken as it would be an 'easy win' – she is a human sized version of the warbeasts I've been painting for the Legion of Everblight, so the paint scheme was the same – straightforward and in this case quite quick to complete.


Not one of my better paint jobs (or indeed one of my favourite models) but it's ticked a box. Looking at the photos, the last couple of washes to the scales has dulled the highlights so I should go back in with a final off-white to the edges. I may also do the same with the skin, to the front of the model at least. In the photos there's a little too much blue and not enough purple.

Having said that I am quite pleased with the final result – especially the snow on the base.

  1. Ditto what Mr Angry said - great contrast between skin and clothing make for a really striking model.

    The base really looks good too - the way the snow lies around the skulls makes everything look freezing cold.

    1. I'm tempted to add a bit of purple to the skin or her winged(?) arm to add a bit more contrasting warmth to the model – now I've had time to look at it the lack of variation is bugging me.

      The snow is amazing stuff. I covered the base in my snow mixture but as the PVA dried it was like the snow was melting and the result was much better.

  2. They really are hugely creative sculpts and what a job you have done on this one! I love the way you use the ink washes.

    1. I normally water down the washes more, but as I had limited time I went straight out of the bottle virtually. It's looking a little heavy-handed on the front for my tastes but I can live with it :)

  3. Looks pretty damn good to me and the base just finishes it off nicely!
