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 ; )

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.
