I was given this mini by a friend, and have decided it is time to get it painted.

I have discovered what many of you have hinted at...PREP time takes longer the

more experienced you are.  I too roll my eyes at mold lines, mutter under my breath

about slag, and flashings left on the mini !

 

She has been washed, and primed, and if I ever stop giggling, she will get painted.

My thinking is "An Ogress that thinks she is Marilynn Monroe", That thought alone makes

me laugh. 

Anywho;  here is a photo of the lovely lady !

Oh, but she's lovely, ABSOLUTELY LOVELY...that's what started playing through my mind when I saw The Girl; it's from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. It is a BEAUTIFUL miniature; have FUN with it!

Thanks Everyone;

Nice to have friends rooting me on.

I just put a coat of black wash on the mini, and I'm overwhelmed by all the details.

Oh, I am going to have fun with this one.

The runt looks like he has a fur bow tie on, and all the details

on the Ogress are cracking me up... I see ruby red lipstick, and shocking blonde hair (like a wig),  or a orange brown hairdoo

on her.  Besides all the bracelets, and fabrics.  ROFL.

I'm making NO predictions on this one, but I can't wait to see what I do free hand in that mirror.. !

If anyone can paint such a character it's you, Jay!  I'll be checking back to see how things turn out, but we are well past the point where I have any useful advice for you.  ^_^

LittleBluberry !

Thank you for such a sweet and wonderful comment.

I love when I get the "Off The Wall" characters.

Then I can toss the rules as I see them, play, and be silly.

The more I look at this mini, the more options I am  imagining.

I may just let the mini ferment in my mind for a bit, I want this to be outrageously silly.

Thanks again !

As I said, I am NOT rushing this one.

I'm allowing it to play around in my mind for a bit (feel sorry for the Ogress)..LOL

I did some black washing, and put in a touch of eyes, and then put a base skin coat on her.

This is by NO means the color that she will end up, I just need a base to work from.

It also gives me some contrast on the various elements that are to be painted.

Looks like she has some colorful warts on face too !

Any who; join me in chuckling, cause dang is this one a woot !

I've started adding colors to the miniature.

Some chocolate brown to the furs as an undercoat, some more color to the flesh tones, put the eyes back in.

(why can't we just paint a set of eyes ONLY once)!  Sheesh.

Took only a second to wipe them out.

Put an undercoat of cavalry Red on both Mirrors.

Dry brushed the furs.

Its showing some promise now.

      Hi all, here is this week's Critter. The details on this model are beautiful. The pineapple is nice wink to the Earl of Dunmore and the Scotland culture. I may need to paint a strap to hold these three vials in place. DSM8110, Scottish Fold Cat Cleric with Warhammer was sculpted by David Summers for Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms Anthropomorphic Animals line. It's a three-piece model and I've painted the shield and hammer before gluing them to the body.

      Hi everyone, here is my latest Critter, Frankie the Rogue. I like the bohemian appearance of this model. I'd say the bardic way of life came naturally for this Siamese Cat.
      This two-piece model is DSM8104, Frankie Cat Rogue with Dagger from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms, Anthropomorphic Animals range. It was sculpted by David Summers. I painted the cape and the body separately before gluing them together.

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:

      Hi everyone. I managed to complete another Critter Yesterday and took some pictures today. Being a fan of the Viking tv show, I really enjoyed painting this one. I went for orange fur this time, purrfect for a Norse Cat. This two-piece model is DSM8103, Cat Warrior with Battle Axe from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms, Anthropomorphic Animals range. It was sculpted by David Summers. I painted the fur cape and the body separately before gluing them together.
