    Creepy Scarecrow

    I'll try washers first-- I have those laying around. It also has the advantage of being ferrous so if I choose to do anything interesting with magnets, the base will stick. In re-basing this mini I've replaced a wobbly but heavy base with a stable but light base, so although the mini is now net-steadier, it also now has a much higher center of gravity. I also considered very carefully boring a hole into the center of the "rock" from underneath and filling that with hot glue and BB's or something heavy, but I didn't want to risk damaging it.

    Thanks, I'll try that! I was thinking about using washers but haven't tried it yet. Coins are out of the question because the pin attached to the mini goes through the base and is folded down and glued into place inside the plastic cylinder. That pin would probably interfere with using a washer. The metal mini is VERY heavy so I might need to use several... hmmm.

    I found this thing in with my old miniatures. It was on a skinny, useless base that was way too small, causing the mini to tip over at the slightest provocation. So I clipped it off and attached it here. Now my problem is that the (metal) mini is top-heavy. I was thinking of filling the plastic base with metal BBs or glass beads in hot glue, but it's not quite large enough for that. Sand, maybe?

    That is epic!!! Truly well done!

    Knight Squad (pic heavy)

    Thanks! I might try that... even if it just comes out unintelligible "lines of text", that would still be pretty cool. Thanks! I did them as black basecoat + white drybrush and then thin layers of color on top of them. It gave them a kind of grainy look that I wasn't super-excited about initially but it's growing on me. :-)

    Knight Squad (pic heavy)

    I loved painting these guys. Originally I wanted to paint them like the characters from the game by ChainsawAwesome, but my children objected to one of the colors, so one of them is clearly a previously-unknown unlockable. ;-) One of the really awesome features of these sculpts is the parchment on the back of the shields. I'm still debating if I trust my freehand ability enough to write something on it... like "POINT OTHER SIDE AT ENEMY" or "PILLAGE, THEN BURN" ;-)

    It appears to be quite difficult to photograph transparent subjects with macro. I really liked painting this guy, but I feel like it needs a base. Unfortunately, I couldn't come up with one worthy of the mini, so simple black would have to suffice :-)

    Stormwing the Blue (pic-heavy)

    Thank you! Painting his scales was super-fun. :-)

    Flail Snail

    Wow! I love the shell, especially how it has a kind of elegant shine, in contrast to the fleshy bits, which look primitive and somewhat brutal. Very nice!

    Stormwing the Blue (pic-heavy)

    Learning from my previous forays into blending with wings, I decided to try for something more challenging. In doing this, I learned that sometimes the parts of bigger minis don't fit together as well as one hopes, which in this case resulted in some improvisation, especially around the foot/base socket and the wings. But I am enjoying how he came out. He was wondrously bumpy. :-)

    Bad Kitty

    Thanks! I'll definitely try that. I've been trying to broaden my drybrushing palette, so to speak :-D For the base, I glued the original base down to a wooden disc, then stuck on a lot of green stuff to kind of bumpily mate it to the flat wood, and stuck aquarium rocks into the green stuff. Then I painted the thing with sandy goo and painted away :-) The pictures don't show it, but the circle of rocks has a decent-sized puddle where all the moss is. I used Realistic Water (not Epoxy Resin) though, so it's not quite as nice as it might be otherwise. Thank you! Yeah, the contrast is kind of jarring. I looked at bat wings for inspiration, but I had trouble replicating the effect. The body and mane drybrushed really well, while the bat wings did not. Next I must learn to blend the techniques better! :-D

    Bad Kitty

    Thank you! The mane (and wings) were basecoated black, drybrushed white, and painted with woodgrain, which is wonderfully translucent. And then I drybrushed the mane really lightly with a different red to create some occasional highlights. The photo doesn't showcase the wing color particularly well because the bottom of the wings is largely dark, so the woodgrain became a kind of glossy burgundy, which I'm really happy with. The problem with this is that (for the wings) it doesn't seem to blend very well, so I guess there's no substitute for multi-stage blending.

    Bad Kitty

    It's as if the creature is saying "This is my watering hole! Go find your own" I really wasn't sure how to do the wings, which was why there's so much contrast between the wing webs and the wing fingers, but I do like how he came out. Feedback appreciated, especially any advice on the wings!

    Fire Mephit's Day at the Beach

    I was playing around with ways to build a translucent base for her when I thought, "hey, where would a Fire Mephit spend the Fourth of July? Why, at the beach, of course!" (although not risqué, the model is partially nude, so there are only a few poses and viewing angles that I considered safe under the board's rules. Other poses are visible at https://1drv.ms/f/s!AlVvpBv_HhuMzKVA9TEd-D0c1rTOSg)

    She looks amazing! Aaaargh. Epoxy resin only has a 1 year shelf life? I'd better make a waterscape or something!
