OK, we have a gaming session tomorrow, so I really wanted to finish up the Tierestra pony figure for my friend Dawn before we played again. To begin, I worked in a few more blue and white highlights, then went to town painting on the symbol of the Order of Blue Flame that I pulled from the Forgotten Realms wiki page.

For my disclosure on this or any of my post or pages… please visit my Disclosure page.


I then started in on the metallic surfaces… the golds and metal of the armor mostly, but I also worked to make the magic amulet (technically it’d be a talisman, but hey it’s D&D) look like it was a metallic blue gauntlet, similar in color to her outfit, but not quite the same.


After pulling highlights out of the metals I added a coat of gloss medium to the leather armor to give it a shiny texture and separate it from the other surfaces a bit more. I also added a thick layer of green wash to the base’s edges (over an even brighter green than before) to make the moss and grasses of the model stand out more.


And as the “crowning jewel” I sliced a bit of sleeve off that little wraith figure (you can see him back there) that I had from the Reaper Miniatures guys’ Bones II Kickstarter of last year, and added it to the pony’s forehead. Now she has some blue flame to represent either her spellmark or perhaps its a manifestation of her ki as a monk (or a bit of both)…


All in all, it’s not a bad figure, and eventually I’ll have to take some nice pics and put them up on my Blackspire Studios Facebook Page as well, but as I’ve taken a hiatus from commissioned miniature painting for a while now, I’ll want to “relaunch” that with a bit more of a bang.

Also it looks like Brother Rob can make the Summer Solstice after all and he’ll be crashing at our place that night. We had another nice talk this evening as I was working on all this pony stuff.

I also saw today that IONS (Institute of Noetic Science) has made the claim that they can now measure levels of healing energy in people, so I donated $10 to their new consciousness research initiative. Maybe you will too…
