Colony 87 Lady Greiss

After all the rioters I painted earlier in the week, I wanted to spend a bit more time over a figure last night, so I pulled out another figure from the Colony 87 set - this time Lady Greiss.

I wanted to replicate the pallette used previously on Lord Greiss and Anamuria, although I struggled to work out which colour to paint where initially. In the end I went for cream armour, a white robe, blue cloak and gold details. Creaster got a lovely little canary yellow romper suit, as is traditional for babies!


I'm a little frustrated with the photographs - the camera struggled with the cream and white, and the contrast has been washed out. For some reason they've come up a bit grainy too. I guess I'll take some more at some future point!



As with Lord Greiss, Lady Greiss was a joy to paint, with clear, crisply defined details. I can't wait to use her in a suitable scenario in future!

  2. Cracking work - these really are a lovely set of minis. The baby looks suitably creepy with that little ruff - a bit like some genetically bred homunculus!

    1. Interestingly, Michael who sculpted the figure says he was expecting the creepy little weirdo to be an alien. I'd like to see one done like that!

  4. I waited to see her on the big screen (vs the phone), and I am glad I did! Great work. The cream/white/blue color scheme is very well executed.

    How long until these are generally available?
