  1. Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama. Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756. (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?) wip is here Pics Oops - meant to put his in show off. How do I fix it? Mod help?
  2. WIP #1 was animals. WIP #2 will be plants. Until Bones 3 arrives, I only have 2 sets of plant creatures. Spirit of the Forest and Mushrooms (a 3 pack). I decided to warm up with the fun guys. First sliced some mold lines. Not too bad and not being super picky with these. Here they are ready for their bath. After some hot water and a scrub with the old toothbrush, I mounted them each on their own homemade holder. staff on the big one was noticeably less bent after the hot water rinse. then they got a diluted coat of brown liner. next up... Base coats.
  3. So I was at this store where they're selling off Skylanders toys at a steep discount... like a buck or two each. And I got to looking at this angry looking tree... I found that it had much in common with Jason Wiebe's "Spirit of the Forest." But bigger. Regrettably, it was painted to resemble a sort of World of Warcraft Pokemon. And so I bought a couple and began an experiment...
  4. Last off the table, a group of Reaper Miniatures ordered during the 12 Days of Reaper promotion. I tried to stick to minis who will see use not just in Christmas themed adventures. The full group: Jakob Knochengard, who will likely see the table as a Witch Hunter for Mordheim: Nick the Holiday Rogue: The Yule Treant: Hecklemeyer, Undead Jester: Tinker the Gnome (I tried for a Disney Gepetto scheme on him)
  5. Last minis for the year. No where near my goal, but two more for the Challenge count. I've also finally gotten a better photo setup. And a quick pick of his little buddy:
  6. Having putty on my fingers and being in a sculpting mood while waiting for my fire giant's shoes to harden, I looked around for something else to tinker with. I quickly dug out the Spirit of the Forest. I didn't want my forest spirit's head emerging from its chest, so I made an attempt to raise it up, though still well hunched over. I drilled holes in the shoulders and the base of the jaw, and connected the head with soft aluminum wire. Also I carved away some of the alignment peg of the original neck joint. I think it needs some further adjustment, but it's a start.
  7. The last of my recently finished works, a batch of mostly Halflings from Stonehaven's latest Kickstarter. Unfortunately, same with my recently completed Lizardguys, these had a case of fuzzy primer. I had taken several steps to fix it, but the further I got along the more obvious it became. Thankfully, the pictures seem to magnify the situation, and the roughness isn't quite as obvious in person. However, the rest of the batch is soaking in the strip for now. First, we have the titan of the group, the Old Growth Treant: A Berserker, Boar, and combination of both: A Barbarian, actually a refugee from Dragon Bait Miniatures, but he fit this group too well to leave out: The Halfling Thief, who has now had her hood issues readdressed after seeing how this album came out: A pious Paladin named Reed: A fiery-headed Archer who looks quite manic in this close-up, hrm: The Linksman, an athlete prepared for any encounter: A Stablemaster, because we always need some villagers: A Halfling Maiden and pet: Skelly, the Village Elder...and we they say Elder, they aren't messing around:
  8. When I got my Stonehaven Halfling Adventurers Kickstarter miniatures, I wanted to paint the treant right away. It was an easy and fun miniature to paint, and I was happy how it turned out. I plan to make a special base for him but for now used the one that he came with.
  9. For one of my Frostgrave warbands. Hyrekia and Morwen are getting this Crow Master as soon as they can afford him.
  10. This guy was nerve wracking. I struggled a lot with the foliage, which I am still not happy with, but I finally got it somewhere I felt OK, and then I decided I wanted a glow effect from all the cracks in his wood, giving the feel of an animating energy. Applying that to a mini I struggled to get to completion was hard to do. I don't think I achieved my goal perfectly, but he looks pretty good aligned up against a bunch of hapless adventurers.
  11. My earlier WIP experiment proved that I paint more regularly when I've got a little accountability. (I also paint more when my kids are at school, which will soon be the case once again.) I decided that I should start a WIP for the two pieces I was most interested in finishing, since they're somewhat related. I plan to use similar terrain for both, namely Pacific Northwest coastal. I'm also hoping to level up my basing skills and incorporate some water effect and possibly try to replicate some of the lush fern-type vegetation. Since these are both Bones, I'm not going to worry too much about achieving master-level quality of the paint job, especially since poor Autumn has some sort of skin condition that needs a lot of attention. These two are about getting something painted and learning more basing skills. Autumn was already started with a coat of Brown Liner and all of her base-coats down. If you look closely you can still see bumps on her nose, forehead, chest and leg. There was a lot of bumpiness all down the left side, I already smoothed out her left cheek with my hobby knife, then applied liner, sealer, basecoat, sealer, sealer. She started out as a quick stand in for a PC that is a druid with a water domain, but she's getting a little more love and attention than was originally planned. This Spirit of the Forest was in my Christmas stocking last year, and has been sitting on my shelf waiting since then. He's just got a coat of Brown Liner for now. He really doesn't need a base, but I want to do one so we'll see. I was hoping to have some of the new 3" rounds from the second Bones Kickstarter for him, but if I get impatient I might have to figure out something else.
