    These two WIP's are almost done now. I do need to improve the female's face a bit, but the hooded one is okay, I think. Going to leave them for a while and then have a go at livening up both cloaks. The female figure can have some kind of celtic design on hers, but I'm having problems dreaming up a suitable design to adorn hoodie's cloak - so time to do some websurfing for inspiration. That's not the sword that came with the kit of Beelphegor either. I swopped it for one I had spare just for something different.
    At the moment, I don't intend finishing off either base as both figures are destined to appear in a small diorama.
    Any comments or tips will be highly appreciated.

    Oops - I just noticed there's a tiny bit of Ainariel's bowstring needs trimmed off at the top of her bow.
    Happens a lot that I miss these things until I take a photo of the figure in question, or they're pointed out to me. I also think taking a few weeks break from a figure means you come back to it fresh and with a more critical eye.

    I think the red cloak is really well painted !! what paints do you use and what colour do you start from ( base colour ) ?

    Hi Sam,

    I use a mixture of GW, Andrea and Vallejo acrylics. I really can't remember, but suspect the red cloak was probably done using the Andrea "Red" set.
    My figures can take quite a while to finish because I'll have around 6 or 7, or even more, on the workbench at any given time - all of them in various stages of completion, and because I work a rotation, (nominally 1 month at work, then 1 month at home), I don't even try to keep track. When I get home again, I just pick up where I left off - but I could be using a GW layer over a Vallejo base coat; it's just whatever looks good to me.
    Sorry I can't be more helpful, but thanks for the comment.
