Nature's Wrath



Evenin' everyone!

Something entirely different for you guys today; a Sylvaneth Dryad! She's a test model to see if the painting scheme, I got from the "How to Paint Citadel Miniatures: Dryads" guide, works. The winter theme really appealed to me and the dark bark just pops off of the snowy base. The scheme was very easy and quick to do. I've spend 2-3 hours in total on this girl and I'm very happy with that! Now I can look forward to paint the rest!

The Sylvaneth will side with my Seraphon/Lizardmen. I have some fluff floating around in my head on how these two factions came together. Will post some stories in the future!

A little nitpick; not at all pleased with the snow from the Army Painter. The snow is very grained and just doesn't look very much like actual snow imho. So I'm looking for a better alternative, any ideas guys? I did go a bit overboard with covering the entire base though. Ah well, a lesson learnt.

  1. I like him, i really struggle with getting wood to look like wood but you have really done well there.
    The dryad models are quite nice, elegant yet full of menace!

    1. Thank you Wanderer! Yeah wood is can be pretty tough. I just picked up the raised surfaces and painted the highlights. You could try drybrushing that. If the model has good details that technique lends itself pretty wel. :)

  2. Good looking dryad!
    For the snow I would recommend that you try mixing the snow powder with some pva and then just sprinkle some powder on top of it.

    1. Thanks Rambler!
      And thanks for the tip! I saw some tutorials that did the same technique you describe so will definitely try that out. But first, I have to get some better snow, Army Painter snow looks like sugar! Fortunately some one directed me to Woodland Scenics and their snow looks fantastic!
