A Chibi?!?

Well yes, I decided I wanted to do something completely out of my comfort zone. With most 28mm models having connection with war and fighting the big differences tend to be skulls or steam punk. I wanted to try something that would really make me think. I figured what better way than to go all cute and cuddly.

The Chibi I chose is from the Super Dungeon Explorer line, its the Tabbybrook Mage - Promo model. It's a cat like mage I think?

Anyway I started by priming grey, I had a new purple that I wanted to try and used it as the base color on the cape. I chose a light green as the complement color and went with the blues to fill the triad.

All in all it was a lot of fun to do and a great way to spend a few hours not working on skulls, swords, gears etc...

A quick pallet cleanser.

I have so many things that are about to happen in real life right now, that I am busting my butt to get the painting backlog out of the way. I sat down to paint and wanted something fast and fun to do. As i scanned the models I had primed and ready to go the Privateer Press - Khador Spriggen just jumped out at me (not literally, that would just be weird).

Now for those that don't know, Privateer Press uses PVC for most of there "plastic" models. The mold lines are terrible and can be in some really hard to reach places. Unfortunately when trying to clean mold lines off of PVC you need a really sharp knife and a really steady hand or you will gauge chunks out of the models. With this in mind, I through caution to the wind and said "To heck with it!" and just started painting.

I kept the paint job simple but I think it works.

On a side note this is the first time I used Vallejo Game Air - Bronze and I am quite underwhelmed. The shine is just not there and it has a bit of an almost green hue.

But hey, it's another model painted so it's all good.
