Ral Partha: 02-951 Ki-rin

Azazel: Another Guest Post from Marouda. Hopefully we can keep her interested in painting models and these can be a more regular thing!

Ral Partha: 02-951 Ki-rin

I painted this model about 4 years ago. This figure is a very nice model sculpted by Julie Guthrie as part of the ‘All Things Dark and Dangerous‘ range for Ral Partha, probably in the late ’80s.

The model is a Kirin which is a creature that looks similar to a unicorn with the scales of a dragon. I remember that I enjoyed painting it as I particularly like mythological creatures such as unicorns and pegasi. I chose to paint the Kirin in a turquoise palette of colours. The model was fairly easy to paint except for the fine detail of the eyes which require a very steady hand so I asked Azazel if he could help by painting the eyes. To provide a shimmer effect to the scales I used a white opalescent paint over the turquoise paint. I am really happy with how the mane and hair turned out. Azazel helped me with painting the base for the model. I wanted the Kirin to be running through waves. To make the waves of the water on the base ‘water effects’ was used.
