02480 Sabertooth Tiger, lynx-spotted, by Pingo

Meow! Kitty ^_^!

 

I really like the colour scheme. It reminds me of the three lynxes we saw in New Mexico five years ago. (Funnily enough, "lynxes" is a word!) They're my favourite big kitties besides mountain lions. Anyway, the kitty and the base look great!

Nice kitty...

Poor kiddie... ( wee little bone pile, my conscience keeps saying adult Halfling like a mantra )

The color scheme looks great too

      I have a private commission to sculpt a set of cats.  The client (a member of this forum) wants them as a gift for someone.  I don't want to go into a lot of details or show reference pictures in the case that that someone happens to see this post, but the client did give me permission to share this here. I'll let the client decide whether or not he/she wants to reveal him/herself.
       
      The cats are to be 1 inch tall at the head if they were standing, which puts them roughly in scale for a 50 to 60 mm human.  One will be sitting and one loafing.  Here are the armatures with basic skulls, eyeballs, and underpinning.

      These are Reaper's 02830: Wolf Pack, sculpted by Geoff Valley. They are mounted on one-inch fender washers.
       
      I painted them for versatility, which is why there is a variety of color and base types.

      So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings.  They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
       
      Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

       
      Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.

       
      Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.

       

       
      One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green.  I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
       
      I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
       
      As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.

       
      I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.

       
      Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
       

       

       
      To be continued!

      I started this figure to be a slightly overenthusiastic Russian bodyguard for Vampire: The Masquerade. When I finished her the GM said she would better serve as a character who is a Mage: The Ascension Void Engineer soldier, basically a space marine.
       
      This was also a slight experiment in the sort of colorless blonde character with invisible eyebrows, except I gave her really heavy eye makeup. She isn't really wide-eyed, but her blue eyes are very pale, giving a staring effect.
       
      According to Hasslefree's flavor text her two big guns are Heckler & Koch MP5Ks. A little Googling tells me that the MP5K is of German design, but also made in Iran and Turkey, and is "the ultimate close-quarters weapon, created for use in very confined spaces". From guns I know nothing, but okay.
       
      There is no WIP thread, but comments and questions are welcome.

      This is Reaper 80026, the Bones version of "Agatha Fox, Spy", sculpted by Andrew Rae.
       
      She is a modish young lady in a raincoat and knee boots, nonchalantly easing a gun out of the handbag behind her back. It looks like the original sculpt had a collar or necklace or something, but I didn't see it in the Bones version.
       
      WIP thread here. Comments and critiques are welcome, as always.
