This blog is to share my main hobby which is painting and wargaming with miniatures. I paint and play historics, fantasy and sci-fi, from 6 mm to 28 mm.
After painting Valeria now it is turn for Belit, the queen of the dark coast. This miniature is from Reaper and sculpted by Denis Mize, a fantastic sculptor well known for his chicks in chainmail who sadly is no longer among us.
I painted this brunette in blue with a dark skinned tone to simulate her life sailing the seas on her pirate ship. For that I used Vallejo Model Color Light Brown 929. The shield is a decal from LBM for 1/72 greeks that I found in the warp of my wardrobe. I could have gone with a freehand painting but I am laaazy :)
Mize's minis remind me to some of Tom Meier's because of the delicacy in the sculpting of her face, hair, chain mail and jewels. Everything is so tiny and so well sculpted that I feel afraid of spoiling the miniature with myr rough painting!
In the shot below the miniature's pose looks weird but I think it is because of the angle in which the picture was taken.
Here you have a comparison between Hasslefree's "Valeria" and Mize's "Belit". As you see there is a big difference between them. Belit looks like a giant next to Valeria. I wish miniature sculptors made the figures of the same size and not 25mm, true 28mm, 28mm, heroic 28mm and so on.
Now off to paint the third and last girl, Red Sonya. This one will be a Denis Mize's again.
