So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin.
One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white.
With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out.
Here is the link to the third miniature:
And here is the photo this figure came from:
And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?
Another piece for my Lost World Project.
I was inspired by @malefactus who made a few scenic photo backdrop boards. ( He also send me the War Turtle as a gift, he is in the last pic)
I figured I'll give it a try, would be nice to take pics of finished recruits and monsters in the right surroundings.
So I made this little board out of foam, Some greenstuff and Milliput on wood to create an Aztec Style Dungeon Door, I made the glyphs using a Greenstuffworld Rolling Pin.
Vegetation made with a little plastic plant from a thrift store, Aztec Ruins from Greenstuffworld and lots of moss/flock and such which were a gift from the awesome @knarthex.
Hope you enjoy it
I have taken pics of my Lost World minis in this background and they can be seen in my Lost World Project.
A few teasers are in here.
Nothing too complicated, I kept it simple because it is "just" a backdrop.
I had fun making it.
Maybe I will make another one with an Undead/Gothic theme one day too.
Well here it is.
And here we are - after 48 hours of building time and another 20 or so hours of drying, our beach diorama is finally done. Check here for the WIP Thread ->Let's Make a Present! Combat divers on the beach<-
When my first present - please check here ->Let's present a ... present! Owl Mage<- was received pretty well by our female colleage, my boss asked me to do more.
This time the task was to make a present for another colleague who left us. As he was in the military and also is a passionate diver, I thought of something military.
What would be a better fit than German combat divers (Kampfschwimmer)? Luckily I found a bunch of German frogmen miniatures and ordered them immediately.
When I told my boss what I had in mind, she asked me to include the following elements:
2nd: An owl (of course)
3rd: an exit
4th: a sign that links the colleague to our work.
Everything else was free for me to develop.
As Frogmen often use beaches to infiltrate or exfiltrate an area, the overall idea was to create a beach setting.
So I went down to the beach, spent some hours there swimming, enjoying the sun and making sketches, until I finally had an idea what I wanted the diorama to be like.
The owl should be sitting on a sign that warned of mines - but instead of a mines warning there should be an inside joke written on the board we often did at work.
The exit should be between two dunes and be marked by another sign. And the Kampfschwimmer unit should be astonished by what they witnessed.
So I started painting the combat divers.
After that I assembled the owl, used plastic styrene to cut out two signs, assembled them an started painting.
Still I had one problem - the showcase I ordered ... *chuckles* didn't show up. That sounds funny at the moment but should be a problem later on. And as I was doing a second diorama at the same time, the pressure increased ... *Insert creepy music here*
