Corabell from Terror of the Lichemaster

I recently acquired the miniature for Corabell from the Terror of the Lichemaster scenario (the flyer of which is pictured here - courtesy of Richard 'Orclord' Hale).

I had not particularly focused on this miniature to acquire it for it's history but because I am buying a small group of villagers for a scenario of my own and she definitely fitted what I had in mind. Like many figures of its time, it has floated between ranges and has also featured in Citadel's C46 Villagers range.

Let's admit it, it's not the best sculpted or prettiest of miniatures but it does have that indefinable but yet distinctive character that much of modern GW fare lacks.

What I didn't reckon on was how hard it would be to paint! It's not clear where some features start and some finish - part of her hair could be an earring or not, it's not clear where her top finishes and her hair begins and some parts of the sculpt are quite crude (for instance her outstretched hand). Using a wash only served to accentuate these imperfections in particular on her hair and so I had to repaint that part of her all over again.

All in all a miniature I was just glad to finish painting. Apologies for the lighting. Due to a recent hurried house move I don't have access to my normal daylight lamps. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
