Christmas Gifts or Yuletide Beat the Clock

Recommended Posts

With Christmas looming ominously. I started thinking of sending a few yet-to-be-painted-miniatures to some friends. I ordered a few that might work if I could manage getting them done for The Day...of course if they get there after THE DAY, it would still be cool; just not quite as cool. All that aside, I did a little Green Stuffing last night & started the first one this morning:

...with some further progress in the afternoon:

...this one will be for my friend "Indianapolis" Jim aka Von Kurst. Jim has a Morheim game going in Araby at the moment; SO I fihure the Genie would go with the game & the Genie Binder I sent him awhile ago.

Man, I always love seeing your work. Thanks so much for sharing it. 

 

Thanks for the reply, Loim...the morale boost is appreciated. I'm happy you enjoy my stuff!

 

That's a cool genie!

 

Thanks, X...glad you like him.

Very cool! I love the fiery smoke effect you've got going on. :)

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

Thanks, OneBoot. I'm glad you like it. The mass of smoke balls kept bringing Lawrence Welk to mind. SO for sanity's sake or at least a break from the polka music I opted for some fire.

 

Looking good so far!

 

Good luck beating the deadline!

 

Thanks, Wolf. I'm glad you like it thus far.

So far I have three or four pieces I want to do for Christmas. This one is the easiest, but I'm not sure if Jim will be going away for a visit with his family. That makes completion time problematic.

The second one isn't all that necessary to finish before Christmas.

The third I haven't figured out what I'm going to do.

The fourth is for Cap'n John; this one I'm not sure whether I should paint it or let him try his hand at it...over the last seven years he has only started one mini.

I am getting in the Bah Humbug Spirit.

Very cool!  I haven't seen many genies, don't know why they aren't more common.

 

Thanks, vegascat! I have a fondness for Genies, but I had a wonderful, illustrated A Thousand & One (Arabian) Nights as a boy...its influence lives on.

The Clock won. I just finished Von Kurst's Genie a little while ago:

what the genie can't just pop over an deliver himself!

 

...that would be cool, wouldn't it? Some where in Indianapolis a little swirling cone of fire appears. Then poof, the Genie pops into existence.

Well, it's the thought that counts, as they say, and it looks like you did a fantastic job on the genie.

Friend Jim aka Von Kurst is pretty pragmatic about these things. It's the impact in his Mordheim/Araby Campaign that counts.

The Genie is now sitting in the Indianapolis P.O. waiting for sorting & delivery...they better get it right, or else ZZZZZZZAAAAAAP!

      My last thread today, not trying to be a spammer.  Just for comparison to the base of the efreet I posted earlier.  
       
      The base is super fragile.  I made it using plaster, and I probably should have made it with epoxy or greenstuff. 
       
      I'm also not super happy with the way her eyes and the gems on her head turned out.  There is not enough contrast with her skin and hair.  I probably should have made the gems bright yellow or amber and used pure white for her eyes.

      This has been sitting in my box merely base-coated for decades until a few weeks ago. This marid (water genie) is huge and heavy, made of solid lead, 3 and 1/8" tall including the base. The integrated base was an issue, as it was too shallow to keep the figure from tipping over backwards. So I fixed it with some fiber card and Squadron putty, and probably killed a bunch of brain cells sanding; but he doesn't tip over anymore.
      I used a lot of interference glazes for the pants, sash, and shoes. I am really liking the new varnish I'm using.

      I am going to start work on this vintage miniature. I would appreciate if anyone can identify it for me (I have no data on it)...What company put it out...an ID/SKU number if possible and if your know the year it was made/marketed...Thank you for your help.
