Spellweaver – from Gloomhaven

The Spellweaver scared me since I first saw a painted one. This is the first time I use OSL (Object Source Lighting) and I was afraid I would mess up with the overall effect.

The miniature itself is not too difficult to paint: the Spellweaver’s skin and her clothes are very similar in colours. Be careful: this also means that you could easily end up with a very flat model, and this is something I really wanted to avoid.

Let’s go back to the the OSL: The idea is to “shade” part of the model imaging light is coming from a specific object. In this case, the spells are the objects in question. Two spells, two colours of light! I gotta admit, it was a very fun miniature to paint and I found very easy the whole OSL process, so I was scared of nothing! Check this article to know more about OSL.

I would recommend the Spellweaver as your first OSL miniature: you won’t need to be extra careful about the details and also it will help you understand the technique.

This is my second Gloomhaven miniature and I can’t wait already to start a new one!
