I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
So I just finished this figure this weekend. This is a Hackmaster Female Gnome Illusionist from a line that was created for the Hackmaster Role Playing Game, but was recently acquired by Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha. It's a pretty nice little series of figures with an old school vibe and some interesting creatures. This is the only one I really have at the moment and decided to paint her up. I painted a version of this figure a long time ago, but not too too long ago got a hold of another copy. So here's the most recent version:
and here is my original version, which I painted probably almost ten years ago I'm guessing:
I'm kind of torn between the two. I think I like the color patterns all bright and such with the freehand ghosts, but at least from a painting aspect, even though not as colorful, the newer one I like probably a bit better.
Way back when I had the conception from the Monster Manual that gnomes were grey with white hair and while I have overcome that conception, I was still living in that state of mind when I painted her the first time.
Anyhow, there they are, enjoy!
Hello all! I got a lot of advice on the last mini painted and I tried to incorporate it into this one. This one is Ingrid the Gnome from the second Learn to Paint Kit. I really wasn't pleased with how she was turning out, but I think I salvaged it a bit in the end. This is my 4th mini, and it was my first attempt at eyes; it was frustrating and horrible. I tried several techniques, and it took about 4 tries to get them to the state they are in. I stopped fussing with the details, particularly on the base because frankly, I just want to move on. Hopefully it's not a step backwards. Comments and Critiques are greatly desired. Thanks!
PS: Once again, I apologize for the poor pictures. I'm going to build a light box soon.
An older one, but I enjoyed the sculpt. This is a continuation of my practice with purples.... Not much I could do, except the hair...
I toyed with the idea of making her much darker looking... but in the end, this is more likely to end up with the PC minis, instead of a villain.
Thanks for enjoying my art.
