Back in the early 80’s, Grenadier put out a few “learn to paint” type mini kits, much like the few Reaper has done. They were called Action Art and came with 11 or so minis each. This guy is from one such set. I’ve painted him as recommended in the “Action Art Painting Guide.”
He is small, even for the early days of 25mm sculpts. So he’s shrimpy, yet buff. Enjoy.
I have an idea or three ... but would like to hear others impression of the impressive Space Mouslings by Gene Van Horne ... who are they in your galaxy what are they like and what do they do ... we each have our own lil galaxy and no two are exactly alike ... so ... how do you see space mouslings in your galaxy ?
Some of you may have seen this one on Facebook as it was my entry in the last Reaper Bones quarterly contest. I love painting Mouslings and really wanted to enter the contest this time but at first wasn't sure how I could make my version stand out especially as you only enter one photo. Eventually, I decided not worry about it and try something I have wanted to attempt for awhile, a night time scene with OSL. I wanted a really light colored glow and really wanted to go with white but could not figure out how to do it without leaving the bee painted only white. So I ended up doing some light glazes of yellow and loved how it turned out. Its not perfect but I think it is a good start for my first attempt for this type of OSL.
I need to get onto some Reaper figures I think but in the meantime here is a thief from North Star for Frostgrave.
Black gloves and boots, London Grey cloak, Royal purple accents. Then an Army Painter black/ "dark tone" wash over everything except the skin, which was strong tone.
Base is green stuff on a washer, made using the Greenstuff World cobblestone roller. Again once you get the hang of it and follow their videos on YouTube these come out very well and saves me from my usual problem of not doing enough on the bases.
Am going to have some open ruins but wanted something with lots of cover, but the risk of becoming a trap.
Here's another post.
Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years. He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people."
Life got in the way. I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion.
He sat and sat at the basecoat stage. I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black.
I am not too happy with it. It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here:
I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel.
But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black.
Here are some more shots of him.
I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face:
He's got a very intense stare.
The eyebrows didn't please me very much.
The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon.
If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife. I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows. I gave up on that ;)
Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue.
