Spring, over a log : with Mi-Sher

7 posts in this topic

So for the last March/April challenge NomadZeke asked for a jumping figure. 

I was a little late,  I had the idea quickly of using this leaping woman, and I had this premade snowy log base that  I wanted to use for something....

Her arm positioning wasn't right, no one would jump over something with a blade held up like that , so I cut it off and moved it trying for a more natural stance. 

 

then I tried TMM on the blade, over and over.  this is try number 4 at least, if I had Kept all the photos, I might try a collage of them. I have 3  saved, so perhaps ill do a follow up post.

I really love what you have done with this mini!  I have seen this one before and often wondered "why are they jumping?" NOW there is a reason for it!  Beautiful work!

I think the base came from the box of goodwill on the forums here, it was a sculpted log with snow covered top.

I added a few tufts of green grass and some GW snow.  unfortunately the snow effect stuck to the figure, so I had to retouch it afterward. 

 

I wanted crocuses in the snow, so I used flocking yellow/green mix in front of the log  to imply flowers. It works in person.

Nice work on her; the painting, conversion, and basing are all well done!

      I have yet to assemble a complete figure from any of the Frostgrave sprues of plastic parts, so I thought I'd start slow with a head swap.  Enter Anval Theicedamned, Evil Warrior.  His head is just begging to be chopped off.
       

       
      I figured I'd swap one hooded head for another so I chose what appeared to be an armored hooded head from the cultists sprue and after chipping away at Anval's neck area, applied the super glue and commenced to hold it in place for several minutes.  Yes, there is a better way, and it involves drilling and pinning things.  Bah, details.  It eventually stuck and I decided on a paint scheme.
       
       Much metallics of various kinds.  Sadly I only have a few.  And a non traditional skin color.  This guy with no visible face lends itself well to an exotic or alien race.  Also, there's some nice detail on that axe.  I decided it must be some kind of magic weapon, perhaps of the air, storm, lightning element kind?  So I applied an unusual color and effect on the blade.  Sparking snow and yes, alien goo.  Also tried to give him a lightning tattoo in alien goo on the back.  
       
      Here is the finished piece.  So how convincing is the new head?

      I have been away from painting for what seems like ages, but the other day I went back to Duke Gerrard and completely repainted him.   I kept it pretty simple, and the face is as basic as they come (I could not even paint in his eyes)  but I think overall he is better.  The main armour was painted using the palest purple I could find, a craft paint called Iris, followed by a simple wash with army painter purple tone quickshade ink. The cloak I used Golden yellow followed by a wash of army Painter Strong Tone.

      Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama.  Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756.  (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?)

      Yet another speed paint, this one pretty much human sized.  I'm thinking of using this one in a Frostgrave warband.  It's not exactly human, but I think that works in the setting (there are beast crafters after all).  If I do decide to use it in a warband I think I'll have to base it on something standard.
