    Well I have finished the first of the Three figures for the vignette.
    The first is "Beelphegor" Andrea 54mm. It is a combination of both box art.
    I will only have to touch up the figure and dust the feet after installation on the base.
    The cape has a little sheen and I am OK with that as capes are sometimes of a different fabric.

    Any comments or suggestions accepted.

    Got a bit of interest in Fantasy figures lately, and I have Falkar the Wandering Sword by Andrea waiting in line on the painting block :)

    I like it !

    I think he looks very good, especially the pale face. Only minor thing is the 2 skulls seem a bit too strong in almost pure white, and since they seem to be actual trophies perhaps a light warm brown wash to tone them down a bit and bring them more compatible to the reds. Just a thought.

    Very good....rather, very sinister....

    agree about the skulls, a bit stark, really thin coats of brown ink may pull it off.

    Very ominous looking though

    I love it! :)

    I think that this guy is one of the most interesting fantasy figure in 54mm scale.

    John,
    Your version is excellent , the painting of the red armour and the face of beelpeagor is a great work.

    regards from Italy and happy painting

    Ray ~ David ~ Richard ~ Jamie ~ Ben ~ Misutaka ~ Karsten ~ Costas ~ Andrea.
    Thanks for looking and the great comments.

    Ray, David and Ben:
    The next figure is to be Andrea's Ainariel. She will be on the same team as Beelphegor. The third figure is undecided at this time. I am looking at either Space Hunter or the new figure White wolf from Andrea.
    Both Ainariel and Beelphegor will be looking to the left as you view them and the wind on the capes is from left to right. So the third figure if wind is a factor must come from the same direction.
    Any advice and suggestions for the third figure will be gratefully accepted.:)

    Richard and Jamie:
    Thank you for the thoughts on the skulls. I went for a bright bleached look with a blue cast on shadows. I am thinking about your comments of a wash and at this time have not ruled it out and may decide to go that route. :D

    Costas:
    You are right Andrea seem to have some nice Fantasy figures lately and the above sure tempted me to do the Vignette.:cool:

    Thanks for looking.
    Cheers

    Excellent painting John. We all like to go over to the dark side once in awhile. Andrea does have a good fantasy line. How was their castings as far as fitment?

    Guy,
    Thanks for the nice comment.
    The Beelphegor figure was a nice fit as you only had the head (choice from two), and the sword half arm plus base. The body and cape is a one piece cast.

    Ainariel is different with cape and right arm as one piece and right leg as one piece and left leg and body as another piece with a separate left forearm with hand and bow. Separate quiver and pony tail.

    The leg goes together well, but the cape seems to be a little challenge to get the right arm to look correct in the shoulder.

    Would like to leave it off to paint the back of the body, quiver but dont think that I dare as the join may show and be hard to correct after painting. All the other fit is fine.

    If any one has done this figure and has any tips I would be glad to hear them. Thanks.

    Cheers.

    John ~ Marc,
    Thanks for the kind words. I have the second figure completed and will now work on the third. The base is completed and I will probably post the update later next week.
    Cheers
