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.

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.
Every society rests on a barbarian base. The people who don't understand civilization and wouldn't like it if they did. The hitchhikers. The people who create nothing and don't appreciate what others have created for them. Who think civilization is just something that just exists and all they need do is enjoy what they understand of it - luxuries, a high standard of living and easy work for high pay. Responsibilities? Phooey! What do they have government for? - Space Viking H. Beam Piper

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!
