  1. As soon as I saw this miniature I really wanted to get it! Its from a range of printable figures called Undercity Exiles, and I used to be a biker so I always have a soft spot for two wheels, especially when they are as cool as this. IMG_20240118_194555888_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Started off by priming her in black and then used some white laquer paint through my airbrush to do a zenithal prime once I'd figured out my light direction. Although just as a sidenote, I dont do this just for that, the whole thing will get at least a light mist of white to bring out the detail to help me see it when painting. IMG_20240120_144146278_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240120_150643707 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240120_151003219 by Nick Frost, on Flickr The only laquer paints I usually use are Mr Hoby brand, but for this one I actually ran out but didn't have to wait for an order as I found some Tamiya white laquer paint in Hobbycraft and man can I tell a difference. The Mr Hobby laquer white covers way better than the Tamiya one, so it took me longer than usual to build up the colour. After that I started on her face and fleshy bits, of which there is not much which makes a change from all the muscles of the last miniature i did! So on the wet pallet I got some Bugmans Glow (dark), Cadian Flesh (medium) and Kislev flesh (light) and put down my base coat of Bugmans Glow as a first step. IMG_20240121_114502156 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_115158673_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_115143734 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next up was the transition shade of a 50/50 mix of Bugmans Glow and Cadian Flesh which will cover all but the deepest shadow, you can see on the pallet pic below I also mixed up the transition colour of 50/50 Cadian Flesh and Kislev Flesh just so I had it ready for me. IMG_20240121_115422281 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Her face is about half in shadow and light with the way I've organised the light direction, so I moved between these shades and made sure it stayed fairly dark on one side of her face building up to the brightest highlights on the other which ended up with a 50/50 mix of Kislev Flesh and some white. IMG_20240121_122225038_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_122230043_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_122235506_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr At this point I thought maybe the darkside was slightly too dark so I brightened it a little using some bugmans glow with a bit more cadian flesh mixed in and I also highlighted a little the bits of skin you can see showing through the bottom of her leotard style top. IMG_20240121_122420826 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_122420826 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_123544909_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr And after tweaking the highlights and smoothing some of the transitions I got here to a point where I was happy with the bright and dark side of her face. IMG_20240121_131645783 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_131653755 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_131701749 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Oh forgot to mention there is also a small bit of flesh showing through the back of her gloves which I gave similar treatment. So then the next step is here visor, now my vision for this to have it as if its lit from the side edges of the headset with a bright neon light from each side. To do this I used some fluorescent magenta paint from Vallejo Game Color, which is good for glow effetcs and such. Now I'd heard a lot of people say this paint was too thin and you need lots of coats to build it up, so I thought great I can make that work in my favour to good effect as I can hopefully paint over the eyes to make it look like they are just bathed in light. So I started by painting the eyes with bright white whites and dark grey centres, I want this whole thing to be monochrome ready for overpainting with the thin fluorescent magenta paint, so I also used shades of grey to adjust the shadow areas. IMG_20240121_132212388_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_133026720_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr At this point I gave the area the first coat of fluorescent magenta IMG_20240121_142129851 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Man obviously you cant tell but it is very thin, and is just the opacity I'd hoped for. I gave the whites of her eyes and the parts at the side a coat of white to restablish the bright points for the next coat before brushing it on. IMG_20240121_143008913 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_144249401 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I gave just the side bits where the light is coming in another coat of white before the next magentas coat. IMG_20240121_144940558 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_144954080_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_145003085_HDR by Nick Frost, on Flickr Oh and there was something really bugging me about her face and then I realised I had made her lips the same colour as her face so I gave them a brush with some of my midtone mix and used the base colour to restablish the lip shadows IMG_20240121_145335817 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20240121_145624635_HDR~2 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Very pleased with that, I think it will look even better when I have painted the headset to box it all in and neaten it up. Thats what I will do next before starting her hair which I have decided to do a dusky lilac, as that seems like a cool "biker-girl-of-the-future" colour! Thanks for looking, more soon
