I needed another female figure for an encounter in Saturdays game so I painted one up the evening before. This is a very nicely sculptured Blacksword Miniatures figure. DSM-1115 Early Snow Female Wizard sculptured by D Mize and whilst I don't think they are worth the £8 price tag they often come with but I was happy with the £4.50 I paid for her.
I did not really want the dagger in her hand but did not have the time to find a suitable replacement so went with it. She is another Aise Sedi that enters the plot and joined up with the party after an action packed night as the players stumbled from one bad encounter to the next. Fortunately they were mostly facing orcs rather than Trolorc's or Fades. Their greater experience is starting to count as they mostly protect their own and don't too often get separated and picked on. Well at least when it happens they know to defend and await rescue, that kept two of them alive on the night.
So not a lot of colours used but lots of layers starting with Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue and then mixing in to it ever lighter shades until I was adding Andrea Blue. Each new colour had between two and three helpings each added one at a time so the colour change was reasonably gradual.
I have a number of ideas that will see this female wizard get a few outings over the coming months, well unless she gets killed which is quite possible around this lot of players. The city they are in has just about fallen to the orc's and worse and it's now all about trying to get out alive. As such it was quite a surprise to see the party head further into the city rather than to the walls.
