Nienna, female elf ranger in 28 mm by Reaper

A lovely model that has spent too long a time in the tin mountain.
Nienna, number 2909 in the Dark Heaven Legends series, is sculpted by Werner Klocke. It is marketed as an elf, but works just as well as a human in my opinion. I pinned the separate sword-arm to get a strong bond.

Paints used (Vallejo unless otherwise noted):
Cloak - 886 Green Grey
Skin – 955 Flat Flesh
Shirt Body – 881 Yellow Green
Metal on bow, sword, brooch, quiver – Citadel Dwarf Bronze
The above washed with Army Painter Soft Tone ink

Pants – 983 Flat Earth
Quiver – 876 Brown Sand
Hair – 818 Red Leather
Leggings – 940 Saddle Brown
Washed with Citadel Devlan Mud

Shirt arms – 890 Reflective Green


  1. This model is one of the ones in the Bones Kickstarter that I am still waiting on. Looks like you did a nice job there.

    1. This one is metal, and it seems Reaper is releasing it in the plasic Bones series also.
      Hopefully as nice as this.
      Good luck with the Bones figures.

  2. Ooh, you've done her as a redhead. Nice.

    1. Glad you like that. I'm trying out some different red-browns to find those I like the most.

  3. A very nice sculpt, and a nice paint job. Like the hair very much ^-^

    1. Then you're a red leather man... hmmm... and don't forget the devlan mud....
      kinky :-)
