GW: Imperial Guard - #21 [Female Trooper] (maybe)  [3 of 14]


Imperial Guard

Painted for the Wyrd Miniature's "Femme Fatale II" contest.

Since this is a vintage 1987 sculpt, I wanted to try to do a little more with it. There is not much of interest on the model itself, so I mounted it to a Groundforge DARK-WAR INDUSTRO 30mm A base and used OSL to add interest to a relatively static pose. I tried to stay close to the original color scheme as I think that works better with the OSL.

I originally painted the OSL as white light. I then tried using inks to change the color of the reflections, but thought that it was too bright, and managed to remove most of the ink. Next, I used glazes of RMS Sunlight Yellow and RMS Clear Orange to try to change the color of the light. Unfortunately, the work that I did in layering was ruined, and gave the miniature a chalky appearance.

My first attempts at OSL were too subtle, so I tried a very stark OSL for this miniature. I think that I have to keep working on it. :(

If anyone knows the item number and/or name for this miniature, I would appreciate it if you could tell me.
