SS&SS: Lea's Alter Ego

I finally put the last finished touches on Sigga's base today, and with her, the first mini for Lea's Sellswords & Spellslingers party is now ready.

I found this Hasslefree mini quite challenging to paint; Kev White sculpts wonderfully, almost photo-realistic, and it means that one has to be very precise with the brushes, as even the smallest mistake lights up like a Christmas tree.

Well, I am not quite content with her, but I think I managed to make her look all right, after all.

Lea chose the colours, apart form the rawhide boot and arm protector, and it was up to me to try to meet her demands. As I feared (a month ago!), my initial take on the cloak was too light, and I had to repaint it.

I await Lea's verdict when she returns home from school this afternoon.


  1. Hasselfree's stuff is fantastic. I'm often tempted to buy it just for the pleasure of painting it

    1. I'm not sure that I think it a pleasure, but the finished product is kinda worth the while. I don't think that I should have picked that particular mini as my first 28mm pj in over a year, though.
