Finished but not 100% satisfied maybe about 90%. The sculpt's look is fine but following the instructions the shadows came out too dark and the highlights barely noticeable the actual light over my table is doing more to highlight. Don't think this guy is the best to learn on due to the staff really blocking areas and making them hard to paint. If the staff was sculpted separate and you then glued it on I think it would be better. However for table top quality I this is fine and as always i learned some stuff. I have another Anirion that I'll try again on at a later date.
These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!!
I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful!
After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them.
Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!)
While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya!
Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it!
Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate.
Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!
I wanted to share this since I did not find many of these already painted when looking for reference photos, maybe it can help someone else!
I went super bold with this guy, as I tend to do lol! The pictures don't really show how gross those pustules are though lol! They have a bit of nurgle's rot on them as well.
The basing was done with mostly natural elements! A real lichen laden stick, seed pods, fern leaves, along with some Army Painter Battlefields Grass Green and Battlefield Rocks, as well as some basic
clump foliage for filler!
Does anyone like to use natural materials for basing!?
C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
This is my first post here! I have been encouraged for a while to join the forums and share some of the mini's that I have painted. I have been painting for many years dabbling in many styles and mediums. I've gotten more serious about my mini work the last couple years though.
I was hesitant to share my work, but figured, "What the heck! Why not!"
I decided to start with this model as it is one of my favorites to paint and I just love glitter, man!
I painted this up for my first con last fall and it was actually purchased by my bestie, he then requested I add the glitter (to match another halfling mini I did for him.)
This is now his alternate ego character (he is the DM lol), which in his campaign ge had only revealed himself to be a helpful travelling halfling wizard until this guy was done. Then it was revealed he was a celestial dragon all along and the main adversary...or something like that lol!
Please be honest and feel free to C&C! Ultimately I know the owner loves it, but I would love to see what others think!!
And thanks for welcoming me into this community!
Oh, and as I am sure you guessed, I did get the Bones 3 Kickstarter so, please feel free to request I share any other minis I might have painted already or will paint :)
