Our Own Glitterwolf posted a photo in my Last Hurrah Thread:
I loved it. I knew I would have to make a version of my own (there were some liberties taken...a lot of liberties).
Once more I had the base all ready for her...or some other hapless miniature. AND here is the result:
There you go.
I have been planning a few ore photo stages. The Trio of Trees will be movable props, & character actors in the cast.
They will eventually appear in somewhat fancier surroundings, but for their first presentation, they are seen here on my work table:
The Philosopher or Idiot...take your pick:
The Conversation, Monk & Tree:
AND the Group Portrait:
...if you go out in the Woods today, you're in for a big surprise.
Good afternoon, brain trust,
I'm trying to fill in minis for a home brew D&D campaign. Four of the overarching personalities in the world are personifications of the winds. Each has a tower in my world, dedicated to their reverence, and each person controls the winds corresponding to a cardinal direction on the compass using an instrument unique to them.
The North Wind is cold and ruthless; abandoned by a former beau, she desires to leave the world as cold as that unfaithful ingrate's heart was toward her.
The South Wind is young, warm, and fancy-free; inexperienced, she sees the best in everything, and just wants everyone to be comfortable and happy.
The West Wind is constant and productive; order and normalcy are associated with her.
The East Wind is unusual, untrustworthy, and often bears ill omen; chaos and sickness tend to accompany her.
For the minis, I really like Julie Guthrie's Spirit of Winter (N. wind), Spirit of Spring (S. wind), and Spirit of Fall (W. wind), but the Spirit of Summer doesn't fit my picture for the East wind, and I don't want a mini that's so under-dressed. I imagined them as a group of sisters, although I have considered making the east wind a brother.
Can anyone think of a mini that would fit the bill and (at least sort of) match the other three mentioned?
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?
