FETCH!

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

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!

      My most recently complete project is the lovely ladies of Oathsworn Miniature's "Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3" Kickstarter.

      As always, they are a joy to paint.  They have nice, bold details but without being overwrought.  They definitely look like a bunch of starting adventurers!  The theme this time was more exotic races, notably a bunch from "Volo's Guide to Monsters"

      The ladies ascend the mountain:


       

      The Kitsune.  She could be a lightly armored Fighter, a Rogue, or a Ranger.
       

       
       
      The Kenku (or Tengu) Shaman.  Or Wizard.  Or Sorcerer.  Or whatever.  She's got a bone to pick with you!
       

       
      The Kenku or Tengu Rogue.  I went with oranges for them to continue my previous work on the Bones Tengu...which were also dressed in orange to match the official D&D pre-paints.
       

       
       
      The Dragonborn, could be a Fighter or Paladin.  The decision to make her red was regrettable...with that pointy face and dreads, I kept thinking of Ugandan Warrior Knuckles.  Stupid memes getting in the way!


       
       
      Tabaxi or Catfolk.  I tried to go with more of a Ranger color scheme than the intended Rogue.


       
       
      The other Tabaxi/Catfolk from the set.  I liked the intent of this sculpt...she could be a spellcaster, a Monk, or a Bard!


       
       
      The Halfling Knight.  


       
       

       
      Her mount was painted after my own painting gremlin, Hershey.  He would be much smaller to scale, though.
       

       

      The Tiefling Paladin.  I really like the pose of this one, though I questioned the hooves, as 4E and 5E Tieflings of this design have human feet.  I may wind up greenstuffing her into boots at some point.


       
       
      The Firbolg Druid.  As far as I know, this is the only miniature of a 5E style Firbolg.


       
       
      The Minotaur Swashbuckler.  I bet you were expecting a cow joke here.


       
       
      The terrain:

      In a recent one-day run through Ravenloft, I played a halfling paladin who rode a war dog. He was so fun to play that I have to make minis for them. Here is the start of Garr.

      Some martial artists I painted back in November when I was laid up after surgery.  The one on the far right is from Bones3 and doesn't have a number yet.  He looked like a shadowy assassin type.

      This lovely Boxer Dog Bust is sculpted by Anastasiya Podorozhna.
      I painted him like my own Boxer.
