Looks good, I'm gonna have to remember to get some little acorns latter this year because I really like your glow 'shrooms and want to try that out for myself.

The shrooms are great, I love the glow. I tried a similar thing with some acorns my son found me, it's a great little trick.

Thanks all, I'm so happy the Glowiness (phone didn't like that word) came through in the pics.  It is subtler than if I'd made the rest of the model really dark but the lure of dry brushing the "stone" and wanting to contrast with the eye hole kept the rest of it lighter.

Cool mini. I also like the acorn trick and am wondering if there are any oak trees nearby.

Excellent work on him/her/it!

 

Kudos on seeing those acorns as mushrooms, very neat idea there.

Had same issue with the tentacles, 3 seemed to fit perfect and the last one needed coercion via a hobby knife.  The gamers at table thought it was cool.

Yours is, however, painted way better ; )

      This afternoon's experimenting. 

      I had originally intended to try and create a red-colored metallic by mixing or glazing, but had already laid a red basecoat and the technique I wanted to try started with a metallic basecoat, so I decided to just experiment with some other techniques I'd watched. I really admire some of the space marine/robot jobs folks do, but don't have any minis of that sort and thought some of what I'd seen would apply well to Ragnaros's really segmented-looking armor. I had a lot of fun with this guy, I might end up stripping him, or just buying a few more.

      While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not.  She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>

      77265 - Drys, Dryad
      I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle.  The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : ) EDIT - front of dryad:  https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA
       

       
      77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
      Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure. 
       

      77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
      This figure is very... uh, purple.  But I think it works well.  I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be.  But still a lovely bit of work.

      She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes!  This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
       

       
      89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
      She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )

      This little fella came out alright I think. My first successful attempt at painting human eyes at this scale.

    • By MelmothWanders
      My third attempt at miniature painting. 
      I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, though it's more green than I had originally intended and I struggled to get the large metal surfaces to take more paint after the first coat.

      Hello!
       
      I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
       
      I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
       
      I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
