For your consideration: Reaper Bones miniature Female Anti-Paladin.
It wasn't until I started on my idea for the shield that I realized that *it* was the Main Character. Not exactly a daemon-possessed sword, but a symbiotic relationship none-the-less. Extravagant tone with bright, decadent colors. She-Hulk for the hair. Massive Voodoo for the dots. (More dots!) My cat Zen for the eyes. (He's a Tom.) Lots of non-textured areas to tell a story. Great player character or reoccurring NPC.
A lesson of extreme - in Color and form. The armor was protective but the clothing was tattered like a torn mesh bodysuit. Heavy straps encircled limbs and the armored boots formed like hooves. Toothy maw adornment on the armor hints at hunger. A very introspective Pin-Up.
I hope you enjoy. :)
So I was feeling a bit nostalgic, alongside of the affection I already hold for old school miniatures, so I've decided to begin "repainting" some old figures I'd done way back when, I'm going to say in 1983 or before/after. I graduated high school in 1986 and after that totally forgot about miniatures until maybe around 2004.
Anyhow, I've repainted Frito the Thief, a Grenadier model I had when I was young. With the new version, I did have to resculpt the nose because it was flattened by time. My other issue was whether I wanted to keep the same color scheme or do something different. Ultimately I stayed very similiarly with the clothing color scheme, but ended up changing the skin tone and hair color. I kept an orange turban, but ended up muting the color a tad. So here's the modern version:
and now the original version, painted sometime in the eighties:
and then a few side by side comparisons:
So what do you think, any progress over the last thirty- odd years? I've got a bunch of these that I think I'm going to do as time permits. They really are some very fun miniatures to paint. The proportions aren't perfect, but they really do have lots of personality!
As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it.
Any feedback is most welcome!
WIP thread here: Shieldmaiden Bust
I need a warrior mouseling for.... secret things. It needs to be a male mouseling, with a breast plate. Does such a mouseling exist? Does it exist in bones? If not, what is the closest we have? I only found the old metal sword and board warrior mouseling wearing a full helmet. But I do not see it in bones.
Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain.
He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape.
The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it.
So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!)
I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.
