Human Shadow Priest

Painted: 2010

I worked on the Shadow Priest, another figure from the old D&D Chainmail line, on and off for a while as a side project.  It was originally meant to carry a shield, but I gave the shield to the a Death Cleric I painted from the same line as part of a weapon swap conversion.

The scepter was an opportunity to test out painting gems, which I don’t do too often.  The armor was mostly dry brushing for the grungy gritty texture that technique can produce.  I wanted a color reminiscent of a funeral shroud for the skirt so used tome P3 Cryx Bane Base color as the primary color there.  In retrospect I should have gone brighter.
