is the 2003
CMON painting contest mini, sculpted by Steve Buddle of
Spyglass Miniatures. I picked up the mini but didn't have it
far enough along by the end of the contest to enter it, so it
got shelved for a while.
After I painted up my CCIV entry I tackled the amazon and finished
her. She's a bit of a departure for me in that I toned down
my usual bright colors and did some freehand. The freehand for
the base was fun to do and came out well. Not so sure about
the dragon on the shield, but by the time I did it I was a little
burned on freehand...
mini is a great one for anyone who likes blending: the large
cloak areas lend themselves to some smooth work. The metals
are all NMM, with the blade done in a Rackham/Cyril painting
style, which is more stylized than a 'realistic' NMM steel.
