The Sword of Silandra

I'm more comfortable painting terrain than miniatures, because terrain is more forgiving; a mistake could simply be interpreted as a scratch on a tree or a leaf turning yellow and so on. Errors are more easily spotted with a mini; for example, there's some silver on Silandra's right shoulder where it should be the brown of her skin. The armor plate above her shoulder is silver, which is correct; obviously, I slipped. 

Even so, I'm mostly happy with my paint job here. I like the simple colour scheme of her costume, the metallic paint on the shield and sword turned out well, and the base looks like rocky terrain. And the wash helped make her facial features quite distinct.
