Here's my entry in the summer painting contest. Hope you all enjoy it.

 

I entered in the diorama category.

 

Parts used:

02981: Lonnia, Female Duelist, sculpted by Gene Van Horne

I don't know the dog monster's number, it's a 2002 Reaper piece. Either that or somebody named "RMI" :)

Fantascape "Wyrdstone Mines" wm0009 base

 

When I saw the duelist figure I immediately thought about doing something like this with her. I was glad I got an excuse to help motivate me to finish the piece! I chopped off the sword and replaced it with some chain for jewelry making. Painting loose chain is a pain! It chips off terribly. I sculpted a collar on the dog using grey stuff and hooked up the chain after it dried.

 

Added a couple of layers of washes to the base and put on some flock to break up all the stone. I think I should have put more plants down.

very clever conversion :)

 

Thanks :)

My painting isn't always the best so I try to make up for it in other ways

Glad you liked it. It says you're a newbie. Welcome to the forums.

Wow! At first glance, I wouldn't have suspected that this was originally a "duelist." The figure pose goes very nicely with the "animal-handler" look. I also really like the broken-flagstone look to the base.

This is really beautiful! The posing of the figures is just perfect and I think the paint job is really good - certainly up to the high standard you set with this conversion. The basing is simply amazing - that's an area I really have to work on.

Thanks. I've been buying a bunch of bases from nearly everyone who makes them. I have a couple of storage boxes full of them now.

When I get an idea I have a reasonable chance of finding something decent to put it on. It's a good investment if you're going to be painting a lot

Thanks cow! I'm not a very good painter, but I'm glad you liked it.

Nice work, I like the white pants. You did a good job on removing the broccoli bases.

My only critique will go to that long mould line along her waist scarf.

 

Congrats on the win!

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.

      Just two dogs that I finished up this weekend. One of which I finished up months ago at a paint n take but just now decided to finish basing and the other from the Iron Wind by the ounce bins at Gencon (does anyone know his id number? I can't find him on IWM website.) Found
       

      This was my first attempt at using static grass. I'm fairly pleased.
       

      This is the one from Iron Wind and I don't know it's ID number. If anyone does that would be appreciated. It's the war dog from the historicals line
      No fancy basing for this one. I decided I liked how it looked plain. I had to redo some of his markings after I put the sealer on because some brown got into the sealer so  Iost some of the contrast. Unfortunately I didn't remember what color I used to get the markings in the first place. This color stands out better but the old one looked more natural.

      The two of them together.
       
      Comments and criticisms appreciated.

      This is a set of minis I did for a Yaktribe thing. The girl is from Copplestone Castings. Babes with Guns. The male is a ganger from Moonraker miniatures. And the dog is a Horror Hound from the Harwood Hobbies Sinbad line.:

      I had great fun painting these two, especially the dog. I was originally going to paint the guy up as a cop but I settled on a regular Joe. The fallen fence is made from a matchstick cut into quarters with a length of 0.6mm copper wire threaded through some drilled holes.
