I haven't done any work with cork...yet, but I have found aluminum foil to be a great base for scenery builds. 

It looks TERRIFIC. Enjoy the process.

The Progress marches on.  Today I managed to get the ax painted up NMM style.  I used the same colors I used for the white.  Still need to finish up the belt and ax handle.  Then on to the base.

 

NMM and White:(from darkest to lightest and all RMS)

Dusky Skin

Dusky Skin Highlight

Weathered Stone 

Leather White

Pure White

 

And here was the result

Okay. I can see some resemblance. Obviously this is Sanas daughter. But who is the father?

Considering the "I have a weapon - a big one!"-pose, I'd go for Master Chief!

Well, moar work on the base.  The next step I do is glues and grit.  I apply glues to areas that are barren or I feel could use some more interest.  I then apply multiple sizes of sand and stones.  Starting with the largest then move on to the smallest.  If I wanted even larger stones I would probably glue them before this.  Though thinking again, I probably should have put down tufts of grass before this.  I also cut some hairs off a used up brush to act as tall grass that I put into the crack in the cork between the stump and the Kid (I don't think you can see it from the photos.  I should mention that I had hand drilled a hole in her back foot.  I than drilled a hole in the base where I wanted her to stand.

"Who are you?"

"Me? Ah - don't mind me. I am just an obscure bystander."

"You are? You look like a big talking mushroom."

"Yeah ... I mean ... what a nice axe you've got there. It's pretty sharp, isn't it?"

"It is. You can chop a guy in half. That's not something you can do every day!"

"Sounds like your favorite 80's action film."

"What's that?"

"Never mind. My name is Fungal Spire."

"Barbaria Cutthem."

 

Cutthem and Spire - the new show on Netflix :winkthumbs:

I know ^^

 

There is a giant mess in my head. And this mess just created a wonderful cartoon/anime-esque intro movie, using some of the characters shown here and the Red Hot Chili Pipers' "The Pig Jigs" song as BGM. Haha. Couldn't end a day better ;-D

With Grin out of the way and my system, time to get back to this project.  Now I've said it lots of times, It still feels that working on a base is like painting another miniature.  So after finishing the figure I get this feeling that drags me down a bit saying "but I already finished the figure, why do I have to paint another," (aka the base).  But I continued on today and made a bunch of progress on the base.  I tried using my phone to document my progress on the base.  Yet, somehow the photos never got saved. :angry:  So I retook the last one on where it stands before I start the kid's 'friend' Fungal Spire.  Yes, I'm totally stealing that.

Now, I also got F.S. primered up to paint as well. I'm thing of going with the classic Orange-Red w/ white dots to contrast the blue.

      So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
      Hope he's happy when it's finished :D

      Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D

      Hi, ok so it seem having a long "put everything here" thread is not easy for moderator, I am opening a dedicated one for those WH40K orcs :)
       
      I am done with the skin pass, obviously more details to go in with brush.
      going next to get the other parts base coated I think , so I can get an overview of the overall look and color for those guys ( for now it look very green xD )

      The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is coming up on November 2.
       
      These are two figures that I sculpted for Reaper, albeit very slowly -- starting in November 2014 and ending in October 2016 (with long periods of inactivity, and other sculpting and painting projects along the way).
      Izzy "Talin" Collier drew the character designs:

       
      Reaper sells them as "Day of the Dead Cavalier" and "Day of the Dead Duchess", DHL 03822 and 03823.
      If you search for them in Reaper's online store, don't use the words "of" or "the" because those words will blank out all results.  Just look for "day dead".
      (I refer to them as "Diego de Muertos" and "Diana de Muertos".)
       
      At last, it is time to paint them. 
      I don't know whether I will use vibrant colors all over or mostly subdued (black / brown) with limited spots of color.
      I've done some online image-searches, watched the Pixar film "Coco", etc.
      The traditional flower of the holiday is marigolds (orange-yellow), so that color will be part of the palette.
      I think I will put them together on one base, but I also don't know how ambitious I'll be on the basing around them -- a bare cobblestone plaza, an altar (sugar skulls, ofrendas, etc.), or more extensive structures and hanging decorations.
       
      My first step of painting is to work out the values with blends of Black and White Brush-On Primer:

       
      Thanks for reading,
      Derek
