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 I was looking at my minis box yesterday and decide that it may be wise to get them done ! haha , like kid who want to cake and mother saying you will get another one when you finish the first one haha.
       
      Anyway I though I just do an ongoing wip, self motivation ( well actually I am quite motivate to get those in shape ).
       
      Primed couple minis so they are ready for paint ( minus the 2 Cmon one since I need to get some putty on those to cover the obvious seam du to the assembly ).
       
      And I am going to start with those bad girls...actually Raging Heroes box I ordered , finally get onto glue all those parts , they are really super small ! Kinda like Wizkids size if not worse lol , well for those at last.

       
      The darksword frogs are for a new scene / vignette but I will paint the figure first this time and worry about the vignette after :D..
       
      Have to think about my color scheme for those lust elves now , I and I think I will get onto dark purple / blue tone for clothings and more pale skin / wolf grey kind of mix maybe for the skin..
      This time since that's a set I will try to paint them in batch so I keep color somewhat homogeneous between them.
       
      Well I guess I have a paint schedule for couple week coming :D...

      Hi guys, so just because I love touching everything haha and to cut a bit form painting ( though almost finish with the reaper beast champion paint :)...)..I started to mess with clay stuff ..quite fun actually haha.
       
      I have no idea how this will end up anyway and that's ok for me to fail , that's just for practice and such and get a feel for it.
      I started trying to do some kind of carnivore plant things ( also looking at a thread here  for a step octopus like sculpt so just trying to avoid the "anatomy" things for now..)
       
      I may have some trouble with lower jaw..did nothing to support it but hmm will see xD..

      Hey so this is my first post, I’ve only been painting since Christmas and I don’t have many friends who do it. So this seems like the best place to get some advice. I’ve been working on this fire demon for a while now and I finally finished the main body, but just wanted some advice for the base and what I could go for. I had a lot of difficulty with the runes on the sword as I really don’t have the skill yet to do it. If you see anything else that’s rough with it let me know please :) the photos are just a few progress pictures. Thank you!

      Starting a new figure, from AoW this time.
      Currently worked on the skin parts...and I could not skip the eye on this one haha 

       
      Just for reference and info , I put the color used for this part ...( at least that will be a reminder for me what I used haha ).
       
      Skin : Mix of Vallejo model color olive green and lime green and Reaper Heather Blue.
      Nails and Teeth, Gum : Vallejo model color purple, Reaper Desert Sand and Bleached Linen
      Also a pass of Army Painter Dark Tone Wash to renforce a bit shadow.

      So I posted these sketches for new sculpt ideas to my social medias and got some good feedback. Everyone seemed to be a big fan of the Raccoon and since he was one of my favorites from the pack also, I decided to sculpt him!
      I didn't have my phone with me to get pics of the initial wire frame and GS layer but I went over that with some Fimo clay and baked an underlying structure now and I'll start layering my Primo on top of that.
