At the tail end of the AH unboxing stream from 11/1/17, Ryan opened a painted miniature, two D6, and a note. The package was sent be me. Below I've detailed a bit how I painted said mini. I am not much of an artist. Any miniature painting skill is from 15 or so years of experience at painting miniatures of all kinds.
First off, the miniature in question is the "Elf Male Sorcerer" from the "Pathfinder Deep Cuts" line made by WizKids, which was picked before Ryan changed his character class. But since he is an Arcane Trickster and not a classic rogue, this miniature should still work well. The paint is almost all Army Painter brand paint. All of this can be found at any game store worth their salt (or, you know, from the Little Shop of Magic in Las Vegas, NV, we ship world-wide). Here is a picture of the paint I used. Except the Blue Tone is actually Purple Tone. I grabbed the wrong bottle for the picture.
So, to start off, all of the Pathfinder Deep Cuts and D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Unpainted Miniatures come pre-primed in grey with Vallejo primer, which is not my preferred color to prime miniatures with, but the detail on these minis is already not super pronounced (at least not to the level of most pewter/hard plastic minis on the market currently), so I didn't want to add another layer to it, which would take away some of the finer details.
The first paint applied was Leather Brown on the main coat and Chaotic Red on the leather straps hanging underneath the coat. The results of this can be seen here.
Next I painted the cloak. I started with a layer of Angel Green and highlighted with Greenskin, blending the two together while they were still wet. The best picture of that I have is here.
I then painted the skin by putting down a layer of Skeleton Bone and dry-brushing with Elven Flesh.
Next was the staff, which was painted Oak Brown and dry-brushed with Dirt Spatter, and the legs/boots which have Uniform Grey on the pants/leggings and Matt Black on the boots.
I then picked out the details on the body by trimming the coat with Oak Brown, painting the straps and belt with Matt Black, and painting the buttons with Greedy Gold. The hilt of the dagger and the flasks are painted with Plate Mail Metal. The hair is Matt Black. Then the magical blast was painted with Purple Tone Ink The results of all that can be found here.
Now, from here forward, I for some reason didn't remember to photograph anything. So I don't have pictures of the final product.
The next step was to go over the skin with the Flesh Wash from Secret Weapon, which then necessitated another dry-brushing of Elven Flesh.
For the base, I wanted it to look like the figure was in a jungle environment since that was where Jackalheart was located. The base was flocked with an initial layer of Dirt Flock from Gale Force 9. I then flocked part of it with Spring Undergrowth, also from Gale Force 9, and then added a Swamp Tuft from Army Painter. Since basically everything is wet all the time in the jungle, I added a generous amount of Realistic Water from Secret Weapon to everything on the base. I don't have a picture of the finished base on the miniature, but I have a picture of a test I did before flocking the actual base.
Next will probably be Mogar.
