Hey all, I've begun the process of re-basing some old WOTC Star Wars metal characters that I painted a while back. I've added a little height to each base, and now they will be more consistent with the new Star Wars Legion models. I hope you enjoy them.
The first is the Cerean Jedi. This guy was my character in the Living Force campaign for many years.
Next up is the Human Male Fringer.
Last, for now, is a Warhammer 40K model that I painted up do be a human soldier.
This is a re-paint of one of Wizards of the Coast's pre-painted plastic D&D miniatures. According to the information moulded under the base, it's a Lich Necromancer.
I tried to get his cloak looking like a fairly freshly flayed skin, though with fairly limited success.
WotC's pre-painted miniatures are extremely variable in quality, both in sculpting and in painting. This isn't one of their best in either respect, but neither is it one of their worst.
Blame @Bathory for the thread title and unofficial goal for this month...
If you're like me, you've got a bunch of unfinished projects collecting dust. Rather than start something new, why not finish something old?
Finish stone giant and these guys
Ok so early May kinda train-wrecked for me and my family so I really haven't had much time to write it up until now, apologies for the delay.
Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
All the information you need should be here.
Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.
May and June 2017
Your challenge is: 9!
Bonus Challenge: The First!
Beware the Batman. In May 2014, this series first aired on Adult Swim. Paint a character you want to resemble a hero or villain from the series. Characters in the series may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beware_the_Batman
Bonus Challenge: The Second!
Spirit of Summer. No, no the mini, but you can do that if you wish. Paint a mini that embodies the spirit of summer to you. It can be a character in certain colors, a water scene, or (a personal favorite) a campfire.
Hard Mode Challenge!
I used a highly scientific method of shooting rubber bands at the wall above my paint racks and seeing where it falls to choose three colors. All three must be used, and only these three (If you have specific colors: Great! if not, reasonable approximations are allowed, please ask if you have a question)
Carrot Top Red
Wizards of the Coast's
Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant
Stalking the Steps
This 25mm scale Fire Giant isn't humongous by today's miniature line standards but he has a lot of character. The sculptors, Chaz Elliot and then apprentice, Jason Wiebe, put a lot of great detail into this fellow. I personally love the knowing grin on his face. However, partly because of the scale and the sculpted position of the giant, I felt he wasn't set up right. So he was reposed a smidge.
When I first looked him over at the work table, I held him on a slab of slate and tried to visualize him on a game board. It's fairly obvious that he was originally meant to be looking down at the puny humans before him but against the more prolific 28-32mm scale miniatures I own, he was looking at their chests or groins.
So after playing around with slate pieces such, I finally figure him out. He needed his sword level. Well his arms were tight to his chest so repositioning the weapon that way would require practically resculpting him. But ... if I cut apart the integral base and and changed the elevation of his feet he looked like he was slinking up some stairs.
Thus the step and repose.
You can check out his painting WIP. The repositioning and base construction was done a long time ago before I was doing WIP posts.
