Kehli – from Descent Legends of the Dark

Here we are, Kehli is finally ready to hit the tabletop!

Kehli is a female dwarf ambusher famous for her creativity. I have to say, during the game this creativity costed us a big deal sometimes but still love her!

This miniature is dark-skinned – like Syrus – and the only reason I mentioned that is that I am not that good with this kind of skin. The goal here for me would be to have Kehli’s face not being mixed with her heir. Besides, I wanted to give the skin itself a good level of highlights.

I’ve started with the face and I saved the rest of the miniature for later. This time, I did base colours and highlights on the face in the same sitting. This is a new thing I wanted to try (instead of applying the base colours all over the miniature first, and then do the shading and the highlights). I think it worked and it gave me time to focus on a small part of the miniature that was difficult to me.

Lot of metals here too – I love metals – so I played a lot with the hammer and the bow (and also part of the clothes).

The miniature is full of small details. This image really helped me while painting.
