Nice work!  

 

What did you use to make that base?

Thanks for all the encouragement guys.

 

I used "green stuff" sculpting putty and formed that shape, pressed the Raven model and warlock model in, then used rocks I found outside to press into the putty for texture. Then just paint.

You are well on your way to being a master of the brush. 7th mini? Could've fooled us! Excellent work, keep it up! :)

That is one nice warlock! Love the gem on the staff and the freehand on the scroll.  And the rock texture on the base is very convincing.  I also appreciate the backstory.  The raven deserves a name.  How about "Pickins?"

Thanks! Pickins isn't a bad suggestion I may just use that during our next D&D session!

Of everything on the model I was least pleased with the skin. I was trying to go for a very pale with a tinge of blue and after trying a few different things:

-first normal skin tone with a blue wash

-didn't like it so I tried to go over it with a very thin white to brighten and smooth

-didn't like that and did a flesh tone wash over it... things were going poorly at this point

-then added a very light blue and said well I guess that's as good as it's getting...

 

any tips on achieving a smooth light blue skin would be great.

Light blue with many thin layers of white (mostly linen), being careful to leave blue around the edges inthe shadows, then bright white as a high light.  See below:

      The crunch of heavy feet, a terrified scream, & a hardy "Hi Neighbor!", it's the Mutatant Mushroom (I'd like to add from HELL! here, but he's just ambling out of The Spooky Woods).
      SO yet-another Mushroom to brighten your day & disturb your sleep; seen here with the source of the terrified screams strolling through the woods

       

       
      ...from a couple of different yet similar angles:

       

       

       
      ...watching from above:

       
      ...AND being watched right back:

       
      ..."if you go out in the Woods today"...I love theme music.

      Here is the Vampire Queen herself.
      She has a Magic Sword guarded by her Crow familiar.
      Her faithful undead servant lights the way.
       
      I tried a bit of OSL on the servant, my first try.
      I don't think it worked out that well, but you gotta try right?
       
      The familiar and sword are from Reaper, pack X.
      The Vampire and Servant are from the Freebooter range, sculpted by Werner Klocke.
       
      Sorry about the quality of some pics, still struggling with the camera.

      I was in the process of painting up a small horde of my Mushroom Folk when a group of them suggested a possible vignette...they didn't actually offer a suggestion; it was their appearance that did it...I think.
      SO I did a few haunted tombstones, grabbed a Tree Beasty, made a base, AND took a LOT of photos which I will inflict on you momentarily.
      The vignette brings to my mind the "stop the ritual" scenario from Mordheim, here is The Ritual that needs stopping:

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      ...there now, that wasn't SO bad now was it?

      My box of figures from DSM for their Stephanie Law kickstarter came in. They're gorgeous. 
       
      Many of them are in multiple pieces and need assemble. These are too pretty for me to half-donkey assembly. 
       
      I have classic super glue. I have green stuff. What are your preferred methods to attach arms and whatnot so there aren't gaps and whatnot? How do you avoid slopping the superglue around swiftly before it hardens? Toothpicks perhaps? 
       
      Some of these joints are very fine, so I don't think I can really pin them. They aren't heavy, so that has to help, and they do have knobs/sockets in most cases. I'd really like to make sure that gaps are sealed, and things like that, so they appear smooth. If they're fragile, that's not the end of the world, since these are unlikely to be used for tabletop purposes. 
       
      This pack is all pewter, although I have a Kraken of Bones material that will need some guidance too. I generally have stayed away from assembly type figures in the past. Time to branch out! 
       
      Help, pretty please?
