Mistweaver Saih




I was going to paint the Excelsior Warpriest next, but then I saw the wonderful tutorial on the Mistweaver by The War Gamer on youtube:

If you don't already, you should definitely follow his channel! He has some really great tutorials and lots of other interesting stuff.

Anyway, seeing this video I decided to use this colour scheme as a starting point. The first thing I painted was her dress. The colours used are Stegadon Scale Green for the lower parts, chest and ribbons, followed by a mix of several layers of 1 part Vallejo Model Color Violet with 2 parts Lahmian Medium. And then I washed the whole thing with a 1:1 mix of Nuln Oil and Lahmian Medium.  At this stage I also painted the hair with Caledor Sky, a shade of Drakenhof Nightshade and highlights of Sotek Green and Lothern Blue.

Next I added some highlights to the cloth with Stegadon Scale Green and Vallejo Model Color Violet. I painted the mask with Runefang Steel and the moons with Retributor Armour. Both serve as a base layer. I also based the black parts with Chaos Black.
After giving the smoke a baselayer of Celestra Grey I washed it completely with Nuln Oil. When this wash was dry I washed the bottom of the smoke with Leviathan Purple. Then I drybrushed it with Celestra Grey, Ulthuan Grey and finally Ceramite White.

Next step was about bringing the miniature to life. First up were the armour plates. I went for roughly the same variations of the blue and green tints I painted on the in robes to give the Mistweaver a monotone appearance. That's also the reason I painted the knife in the same shades as her hair.

I did all this by using a wet palette, something I've never done before! I keep reading about how wet palettes change lives, so of course I had to try it. Is it as life-changing as people say? Yes. Yes it is. Im still finding out how to use it, but I can definitely see how awesome it is once you get the hang of it. There are lots of simple tutorials out there on making wet palettes on absolutely no budget. Check them out and give it a try.

As you can see above, I started on the base as well in this stage. I'm getting myself a nice lava-mat to game on, so all my Age of Sigmar models get a lava-themed base.
This is really simple to create, in a future blog post, I'll show you how I make them.

After some retouching, I finished the base.
The completed Misweaver Saih looks like this:
