I finally was able to get the time and - quite frankly - the painting bug biting me to get this done for Jasper the 2nd, who won my Artist page 500 likes random contest drawing.
This is the figure he picked out of my collection and I'm going to mail him out this week. It's a Forge Guardian from Rackham Confrontation, dwarf of Tir-Na-Bor. Metal figure, at 28mm scale. It was actually quite fun to paint up. The base is a pre-made base that I painted to be a stained/rusted metallic from the old Stonehaven Dwarves kickstarter.
Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!
Finally remembered to post these up.
I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange. I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year.
He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk. I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it.....
With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour. Hopefully that was somewhat successful.
The Lord came out fiarly well, I though. I'm not sure if what I was trying with the hat came across as well as it could of.
I was really happy with the vest, though it may not show up well in the picture. I used Ruby Red to highlight Gothic Crimson, which gave it a nice satiny shine.
Apparently all my shots of his back are blurry, and he's on a different continent now. But dark grey coat of light grey pants, not too exciting anyway.
The Dame is a lovely figure and a joy to paint. I had a great time painting her, other that realizing that I'm missing at least one paint in each green triad I wanted to use....
And whenever I paint anything that could be considered Steampunk-y I love to throw in a West Wind Infernium Hound.
My husband is running a game of more-or-less-Exalted (2nd ed.) set in the more-or-less World of Darkness (2nd ed.) ("But rather less than more," as W.S. Gilbert wrote -- it has been given the complete Neil Gaiman-Alan Moore historico-mythological treatment, about which I can expound elsewhere and another time, 'cos it's a really fun game).
One of the PCs is playing a mage of the Sons of Ether who has taken to proffering therapy to would-be reformed werewolves and vampires, who Exalted as a solar of the Twilight caste.
If this means nothing to you, don't worry about it. He's a modern-day Scottish mage who has suddenly gotten an infusion of even more magey power.
This is my standard starting point, the mini glued to a base, primed white, and washed with Burnt Umber.
The Steampunk Busts Girls by Scale75. A innovative project for collectors, painters and even gamers with desire to paint.
