For your consideration, I offer Nolevniss Azrinae: Reaper Miniature 60162.
Or in this Multiverse: Elariel Moonshadow
This elf Magi was an active sculpt to paint. The robes and cloak are dynamic in portrayal of wind movement and direction. The robes were long and laying folded in back, which suggests weight and volume. Limited palette with work on suggesting different textures of cloth. Teeny eyes. Delicate sculpt too with the hair and features.
And the familiar was an enjoyable if not surreal sculpt. I was told by the person who wanted this painted, "And paint the baby dragon gold." When I popped my Opti-visor on I was like, "That's not a dragon..." This creature reminded me of the haemonculus familiar from earlier Dungeons and Dragons editions, while the head reminded me of an eye-less vampire bat. What you see is the result. Cute. (But you don't want to be left alone in the same room with it.)
The staff is a weapon of Power - like Purple Name power. Spell book and scrolls along with bandolier pouches told me a story of a travelling Mage - even his staff clutched a simple stone at the foot to act as counterweight.
But not a nice guy.
I hope you enjoy him. :)
Peace and blessings.
Incredible, that's the only way I can describe the experience of Painting this Miniature.
Tom Meier is know for his skill, but he has this ability to put so much detail into the smallest of Mini's.
This is NO exception. Loved working on this mini (look out for the antlers..."SHARP".
The Mini is also very small.
I have experimented all over the place on this mini. Colors were the basic Wash/primer/than Brown Liner.
I then started mixing Nightmare black (which is really blue) and put on about seven coats, mixed vampire whites into pallet,
Cavalry reds, washed, and anything I could mix in there. I had my trusty color wheel out, and was just playing.
Eventually he said "I'm done/cooked/finished. So here he is. I even used clear colors in this paint trip.
Your comments are solicited, and very appreciated.
Do let me know what you think.
Here are some photos: I Forgot to add the obligatory quarter when I paint anything by Tom Meier;
gives you an idea how small he is !
Actually, I'm starting this tomorrow. I'm starting the thread now so that @buglips*the*goblin has a chance to check in and add my name to the list of bat-crap crazy whackjobs taking this on. And, you know. Pelt somebody with a stanky shoe, 'cause why not.
As this is a Goblin Challenge, it will follow the Challenge Rules, as stated in this thread:
I am .. not sure I know WTF I'm doing, but whatever, I'm a girlblin, I'm not known for sanity, and I pelt people with chili-bombs.
So. Maal's been washed and dry-fitted, and I've said a lot of bad words about all the ratzenfraggin' holes in the wings and ... done exactly nothing about any of it, because I'm not breaking out the knife and greenstuff until tomorrow. But! The PLAN, if plan there can be said to be had, is that tomorrow, day one, will be mostly line-trimming, gap-filling and wing-patching, and possibly linering the base.
After that, painting will proceed apace; and here's a picture of Maal'dryfitted to prove I have all the pieces, and amuse everybody. I couldn't find Sir Forscale, so I used a quarter.
Let the commentating begin! ... don't get nuts, I'd like to be able to start this tomorrow and only be on page one or two. ;p
