As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it.
Any feedback is most welcome!
WIP thread here: Shieldmaiden Bust
By Rob Dean
Last week was a hectic one at work, but I am now finished with an event that took a year to plan. I ended up relaxing with my paintbrush for a little while this weekend. I have had these two guys stalled in my paint queue for a good long while. According to my painting records, the last time I finished a 54 for this project was 2012.
The monk on the left is a metal figure from Irregular Miniatures, and is one of a handful of medieval civilians they have. The archer is a plastic toy, a reissue from the molds for the Marx 54mm Robin Hood set, probably sculpted in the early 1960s.
They are intended to add a little variety to my 54mm medieval skirmish games, mostly populated by Accurate plastic figures. Here's a shot from a game at Historicon in 2014, to give the idea:
I have been considering bringing this to Gencon next year, travel method and hotel permitting, since the 54s show up nicely at a con. After these two, it's back to 25s again for a while, since I have a higher priority project I want to finish up...
Starting on my second project. Masterbox's World of Fantasy. Box states 1/24. Injection molded plastic.
Didn't like the Footrests, so added my own.
Added a cushion for her to sit on.
Added some rings in his horns for adding reins later. Is now ready for primer
The dwarf is the 5th figure that I have painted from the old Grenadier 2007 set. It was so hideous that I never posted it, partially because I didn't really like the figure and just slapped some paint on it to call it done. I mean, those eyes were just sculpted circles. I filled the center with color, edge highlighted the raised outer edge, and then went around them with a shadow color. If you are an aspiring sculptor... never ever sculpt eyes like it is 1980. But I was talked into posting it, so blame 72moonglum and Volksfest for the horror.
For scale, here is the dwarf between and Infinity Nomad and a Reaper bugbear. Knee-capping is her only option.
Well, I had started Hirst Arts ruined field stone tower in an attempt to build terrain for Frostgrave. After building some of the wall section, I had a bit of a Cat-trastophy with them. My cat decided those pieces would look better on a cement floor... in pieces. Since I posted in the September goals thread that I want to try and finish the building of the tower this month I thought I would post where I was in my progress. Be warned, my skill are very lacking, as there are several uneven level, but it is a ruined tower.
There are going to be three level inside the tower that are being pressed in an attempt to keep them level. Here is a shot of the pieces apart.
I'll be more than happy to take any advice.
