So, anyone planning to fingerpaint a microbust of a horror creature??

 

Very interesting challenges.  And since I still haven't decided my Jan/Feb plans yet, I might give one or more a try!

In monochrome? ::P:

I think there's crippling size limitations on your fingers with that, but if you can pull it off, go for it

im going to skip the finger painting - but the micro bust sounds kinda fun. 

I am currently painting up the fire dragon 77109  - it is relatively small, but fits best on a 3" base.  is that 2 or 3 figures worth?

I think now that this is bi-monthly, I'll give it a go.

I finished DDS2 in January... that's 5 adventurers, a dragon and a crapton of terrain... I assume that completes my number quota for Jan/Feb? Even if not, I have 3 figures that I have to finish by mid-February and then the bonus challenges will push me further beyond quota completion.

 

I'm especially looking forward to having some fun with fingerpainting...I already know which figure I'm going to do.

I'm intrigued by the notion of the microbust.  

 

I've selected a candidate, but I've never really made such severe modifications to a model before.  Unfortunately it's metal, so won't have the luxury of being able to cleanly cut away bonesium.  Now, I've snipped off a broccoli base, filed down parts, and shaved off flash, but I've never tried to cut through the main mass of a models body.  What tool do you use to cut through without distorting the model too much?

Jewelers saw would do it. Perhaps a very fine blade on a hacksaw?

I was just re-reading the bonus challenges; by classic horror creature, you mean vampire, mummy, Frankenstein's monster, stuff like that, right?

Or do slasher movie villains, aliens, and stuff like that count as well?

      Assembly Required is a feature film about the world of gaming. On Kickstarter now http://kck.st/2La7UCY - 90% FUNDED 
       

       
      Lifelong gamers and brothers Dore and Dante Harbridge Robinson have quit their jobs as VFX artists to bring to life a comedy feature film all about the world of gaming. Assembly Required tells the story of Theo, a modern day Viking warrior who is also a passionate wargamer. His one regret is losing touch with his childhood gaming group. By chance, years later they all meet in a field. Whilst Theo has honed his skills on the tabletop and become a master with a cardboard sword, his old friends have entered the very real underworld of crime. Genuinely impressed by his sword wielding abilities they want Theo involved in their latest heist! But what does Theo want?
      The movie is on Kickstarter Now, ending 15th July. Packed with rewards including exclusive miniatures and a one time opportunity to join the cast and act in a massive wargaming film!
       
      The film is being supported by Weta Workshop Lord of the Rings sculptor Gary Hunt, and the Nova Open.

      Every now and then, it's fun to give something new a try.  In this case, I had a spare Ingrid lying around since hubby didn't want to paint her, and this all started with me trying to show hubby how I do drybrushing...  Or at least attempt drybrushing, since I'm not all that good at it.  Thankfully, it helped him pick up the basics alongside what was written in the LTPK Core manual...
       
      Then it turned into a downward, flaming spiral, but arguably, in this case, flaming is good. ^_^;;;;  I wondered, is it possible to drybrush an ENTIRE mini...  And even more so, can I do it with just FOUR paints, where two of them had technically already been chosen since I'd started on her cloak, AND none of them could technically be from the same colour group as another (so no reds if you have an orange or pink, etc)?  And even more so, using JUST the #2 flat brush I had picked out before for the drybrushing?
       
      Well, uhmn....  First and foremost, it was fun, and that was the point of it all for me.  Just sit down, have fun, and see where things go.  In short, I'm calling it a draw - I've picked up on a few more things as basics to work from, and I'm fairly proud of that cape, doubly so since it wasn't anywhere near as long to do as other techniques.  Does it sell it as well as layering does?  Nope, but I'm okay with that!
       
      Anyways, onwards to the results of some experimentation to see just what my own limits could be with such a technique, and what kind of colours I can come up with using just 9417 Void Blue, 9432 Desert Sand, 9600 Heart Throb Pink, and 29833 Ash Grey....  For the record, the two I had started with on the cape were Heart Throb pink as well as Ash Grey, since the Ash Grey was used to initially demonstrate what I was doing for drybrushing, and then the Heart Throb Pink was chosen as something that would very much so stand out so he could watch every stroke of the brush...  I wound up liking such, and so rolled forward to do the entire mini with drybrushing.  Oh, right, I'm not counting the primering of the mini, which was done with Grey Liner.... ~_^
       

       
       
       
      The story I'm going with is that it's a cursed gem that steadily corrupts and takes over one's body and soul, and that she's pretty much completely overtaken by it...  Or something, as she's kind of a pink glowing eyed dusty grey skin coloured gnome now, with gear that hopefully looks fairly dated / well aged....

      Stonehaven Ent Troll, a much friendlier looking treeman, from one of the Stonehaven Kickstarters.

      This is Scibor Treeman #3 (SKU 28MFM0151).  Tried to  him dark and evil looking, though the skulls kinda give that vibe as well....

      I had finished the dragon in December last year, but I still had the base to work on. Finally finished this brand new looking clockwork dragon painted with metallic paints and my favorite blue, Nightmare Black this weekend.  I still have another, thinking of doing a rusty/tarnished version sometime.
