From DebD: Dark Sword: Female Ranger with Bow (10 points)

This week I had a bit of fun with Dark Sword's Female Ranger. I wanted to try to create a forest scene and use bits of nature. I really enjoyed this project. Surprisingly, bark is very fun to work with!

Scale: 28mm
Mfg: Dark Sword Miniatures
Product: Female Ranger with Bow
Material: Metal


The bow was added to the model. It is a metal spear that I clipped and filed down.


The trees are twigs, bark and moss found on a hike and later dried in the oven.  Some people bake cookies, I bake bark lol


The ferns are card stock paper that has been punched out with Green Stuff World's small branch punch.


The leaves in the trees and on the ground are birch seeds that have also been dried out. 

One of these weeks, I will have more than one figure to post :)

1 x 28mm from Dark Sword

Thanks!
Deb

Wow, what an absolutely stunning vignette Deb. 

The figure's ridiculous pose aside (What tortured mind comes up with these incongruous, quasi dance-class animations?), you've done a terrific job on the bow modification and the painting is top shelf, particularly her face.

The forest setting you've created is truly inspired and I really like what you've done with the various mixed media to achieve the overall effect (Note to self: I absolutely NEED that small branch punch thingy). 

On top of the standard 5 points for the figure I'm giving you another 5 for the groundwork and bow modifications. Lovely work Deb!

  13. Nicely done! Your colour palette is exquisite. As our minion I‘m not all too keen on the pose of the figure but that’s hardly your fault. Great painting and especially basing.

  18. Beautiful work, Deb! I hate the poncey elves, but she is a lovely redhead with a bright pallet of color...she definitely appeals to my ancestry!
    My daughter, Valerie, wants her for her Tree Woman army, so thank you for inspiring her on! ;)

    1. Dave, I hope you share some of your daughters’ painted figures this challenge.
      They both have such creativity and imagination and I for one would like an update on their armies.
