    This is a really fun piece. I really like what you did with the base. Simple, but still interesting without detracting from the mini. Well done!
  2. He was the closest one I could find at the time... :/ I bought my minis for this back in May 2017, so the third wiseman was a distant dream. Instead, I went for "Used Magic Carpet Salesman," but I think it worked out in the end. It was a ton of fun to paint him anyway.
  3. Haha, thanks. I've been painting about 18 months now, so I don't really qualify as a newbie anymore, I think. For this one, I wanted to try something a bit more complex, so I decided to dip my toe into the diorama idea. And yeah, I really do think the scene should have an angel included. I know she wasn't sculpted for the nativity, but hey, she fits. And thank you all for your warm words! I'll be sure to try and post some of my upcoming Reaper minis I have in the works. :)
  4. Thank you for the warm welcome! There's some real talent and skill on this forum, and I'm just glad to be able to contribute. Thanks! I wanted to go for more of a traditional biblical feel with this one, so I opted for the cave rather than the freestanding stable. (Also, I doubt I have the skill just yet to build a full stable, haha) My father collects nativity scenes, so I wanted to do something to make it pop.
  5. I painted up the nativity set for my father as a gift this year. Granted, I was a bit late on the new wiseman , so I used a merchant instead. That's what I get for ordering my supplies a few months back, I suppose! This is my first diorama, and I'm fairly happy with it. I put a flickering LED tea light inside it for a homey feel. The base was built using cork, hot glue, milliput, sand, and a piece of wood from my craft store.
