Show your Bêlit!

Recommended Posts

This was a quite difficult miniature to paint, at least for me. The face and the jewels in the hair and on the body seem to be a bit random. :mellow:

I hope the other Bêlit will be more enjoyable to paint.

What does your Queen of the Black Coast look like? :smile:

Painting eyes is always a tough moment for me. On that miniature, the face was so tiny, with few relief... I wasn't really happy with the result, even after several tries.

 

But, I think that making eyes is worth the effort, even with miniatures that aren't meant for exhibition, but rather to play.

I was not painting eyes on these minis because they looked fine when playing the game but now looking at the pics I think I will go back and add the eyes.

If that qualifies as full barbarian armor, then she's obviously keeping warm in the snow as well.

It was less painful (read: I had more fun) painting Savage Bêlit than the "regular" one. The face of the miniature was better shaped, with proper nose and mouth. Made the eyes at the first attempt. That was unexpected.

My wife was grumbling the whole time I was painting. It didn't happen with N'Gora. Go figure... :orthoseveres:

Your savage Bêlit has kinda sad eyes. It gives an interesting  look to the whole miniature. I like it.

 

I also like the very fair complexion of their skin, with high contrast with their "clothes". Which color did you use for the skin?

I painted the last of my Belit minis in my latest efforts...  Haven’t touched the 3 big box Expansions, but getting very close to having finished everything from the core, all the add-ons, and all stretch goals... so... close...

Thanks. 

Sorry I missed this. I think it was Iraqui Sand (Vallejo 124) with Light Flesh (Vl-006) and Ivory (Vl-005) to do the lights; but I'm not hundred percent sure, sorry.

It was a daring move to splash her with blood. I wished to do that with Savage Bêlit, but didn't dare. I really like the result, it encourages me to have a try!

 

What type of brush did you use, @Epaka?

I used an old toothbrush, dipped it lightly into a tub of Citadel’s Blood for the Blood God, and carefully flicked the bristles at her. I’ve done it with a few other minis as well, makes a great looking splatter effect.

Thanks for the tip, @Epaka!

 

I didn't get as large splatters as you. I guess it will take some practice, but I think the result has improved my Bêlit a bit.

As I was afraid to get blood in her face (mostly in her eyes) I used a small tape to cover her face. The downside is that now, her head is too clean in contrast to her body...

Here's my "vanilla" Bêlit. Camera focus is a bit off from her face, and despite two attempts to straighten the spear it still looks like a banana.

 

I painted the other Bêlits as well, will post photos of them later. I painted them all at the same time because I wanted a consistent tone for the ivory skin Howard describes in Queen of the Black Coast.

I think it looks good. You can perhaps use a toothpick to dip in the blood and add some small selective dabs to her face? 

I tried it, but wasn't quite happy with the result, so I guess I'll stick with the toothbrush. :smile:
