Since I now have all the colours I need for this challenge, and Stormwing was suitable prepped, I didn't really have any excuse any more.
My dice rolls, as mentioned earlier was:
And since I have no idea of how to make those colours work together, I've decided that I might just as well go whole hog and do a 3Star challenge.
So no shades or highlight colours. Just Pure White and Pure Black to help out with.
I'm also adding Grey Liner, as a Primer only.
Stormwing and base has been Lined. Not all that even, but then again, it shouldn't be visible later since it's there as a Primer only.
The mess in my pallette was me trying to find a way to blend the colours.
Nope, didn't really find anything, so no blending.
It may look as if there's some blue on Stormwing, but that's just the camera being fooled by the lighting.
(Vilet Red is to the left of 'six o clock' and Blue is to the right. Blush Pink is in the center.)
I want to give my girlfriend's parents a little gift this X-mas ( well a bit before that).
So I decided to make a little vignette of the Nativity Set.
I found this nice dome for 5 euros..
I had to skip the idea of the three Kings.
But my girl explained to me that they visited later, so it wouldn't be a problem to just use the Nativity set itself, a sheperd and a few animals.
Else it would get too crowded on the little wooden plate.
The Donkey and Oxen are supposed to keep Baby Jesus warm with their breath. So that's why they stand so close.
The Cow will be mutilated converted into an Oxen.
Here is the set up.
I might have to move them a little more forward to close the gap.

So, My sister has a 'Best Friend Forever', and that friendship has lasted... long enough that one of them has become a grandmother...
And my sister had her Birthday recently, and I figured to give her something slightly special...
Ice Blue and Moss Green dress.
Moss Green and Ice Blue dress...
Side by side...
And seen from the back:
The bases was made as a single base using a Happy Seppuku stamp, cut to size, then split down the middles with a knife.
The base material was some cheap air-drying stuff I found at 'Sisters Greene'. PAintjob is Concrete and Rock Grays, and a dark gray wash in the cracks, then a matte varnish all over, with some gloss varninsh added to the cracks afterwards.
I probably should have made it possible to remove a mini with it's 'half base' from the plastic base so that it could be placed next to the other, but the base material is just so brittle that I didn't think it would survive very long.
The plastic 'stepped' bases comes with plastic domes, to protect the minis from dust.
Sorry about the poor lighting. And the focus could have been better, too, but I was in a bit of a hurry to get them finished, photographed and given away.
This one puzzled me for quite a while, then annoyed me for even longer.
Gray fur almost worked, then not at all.
I tried steel colours, then bronze, and even to make the sword look like some sort of black glassy rock... It just screamed NO at me.
So I gave it another bath in the Pit of Regret, washed it off and gave it a coat of gray primer, then sat down and studied it....
Yeah, it had to be done like this.
I still have a bit of a problem with getting good pictures, but...
The colours is MSP Shadowed Stone as base and MSP Weathered stone drybrushed on top.
The Gold is Dwarven Gold,and the blue on the headdress is Oceanic Blue, with more Weathered Stone drybrushed over to 'age' it a bit.
The eyes and the jewels in the swordhilt is Tamiya Clear Red.
It was given a coat of matte varnish, but it's still a bit too shiny, I think.
I think it should fit well at the entrance of a tomb or something.
