I think it looks great!

I'm not qualified to comment on OSL, only tried it once myself

As I have a couple Grenadier dwarves on my painting desk now, I have to say well done!

 

As for the OSL, I've found two things that work best for me:

1) the lighted areas have to be lighter in color than the base coat.

2) Glaze the appropriate color from the lighting source over the lighted area.

 

Having the start yellow-orange of the fireball would work better if the overall scene were darker.  Fire doesn't impart a strong yellow-orange color on stuff when it's light outside.

 

But since my OSL attempts can be counted on one hand, I might not be the best to offer advice.

 

Still, I love those Grenadier dwarves, so I'm hopeful he can overcome his magic-wielding adversary.  Love the icicles.

Thank you about the icicles, I just wish they hang a bit more straight down.. but they were such a hasle to control!

Yes, I think youre right, I should have made the hole scene Darker.

I am sure he will overcome the magic trick, He is mad after all!! :0)

I really like the whole piece..  putting stories like this is not something I've tried and always appreciate the imagination the goes into their creation.

 

love the basing, snow and icicles and wizard and dwarf combat poses sell the duel

The dwarf should just jump backward, off the stone, and watch the wizard see-saw away.

Thank you! 

I almost find it "hard" to make single figures, I always imagine them in some kind of duel/situation..my imagination just runs away :-)

Therefor I love minis in dynamic poses.

      The moon has blotted out the sun, so my little gobbo pal here needed to light a torch. How does he look? I'm particularly curious about the lighting, since I haven't tried anything like this before. There were three more of him on the sprue, so any advice you can offer will definitely be put to practical use! Thanks, guys!

      Here are some Spelljammer-esque minis that I have been working on. They've been in my collection for many years, so I don't really remember, but I think a few of them are Reaper.

      I decided to get going on my entries for the Frostgrave Triple Sprue Challenge.  The idea is to convert the three mainstays of a Frostgrave warband; Wizard, Apprentice, and Captain.  You could only use a single sprue each from the Soldiers, Cultists, and Barbarian kits.

      First up is Vismar the Obsessed, Wizard

      He's never quite been the same since he found that staff made from the remains of a Magister of the Frozen City.


       
       
      Next is the Apprentice, Cymon.

      He's obsessed with that one simple hat trick. It would be more impressive if he summoned the rabbit rather than the Undead.
       


      Up last is Sir Brodes, Captain

      A life-long retainer to Vismar, Sir Brodes often regrets his family's pledge to the House of Vismar....much more often since they came to the Frozen City.

      For your consideration, I offer Nolevniss Azrinae: Reaper Miniature 60162. 

      Or in this Multiverse: Elariel Moonshadow

      This elf Magi was an active sculpt to paint. The robes and cloak are dynamic in portrayal of wind movement and direction. The robes were long and laying folded in back, which suggests weight and volume. Limited palette with work on suggesting different textures of cloth. Teeny eyes. Delicate sculpt too with the hair and features. 

      And the familiar was an enjoyable if not surreal sculpt. I was told by the person who wanted this painted, "And paint the baby dragon gold." When I popped my Opti-visor on I was like, "That's not a dragon..." This creature reminded me of the haemonculus familiar from earlier Dungeons and Dragons editions, while the head reminded me of an eye-less vampire bat. What you see is the result. Cute. (But you don't want to be left alone in the same room with it.) 

      The staff is a weapon of Power - like Purple Name power. Spell book and scrolls along with bandolier pouches told me a story of a travelling Mage - even his staff clutched a simple stone at the foot to act as counterweight. 

      But not a nice guy. 

      I hope you enjoy him. :)

      Peace and blessings.

      A request was made to paint this guy and the Legendary Dragon Slayer Dwarf to match. I think I did pretty good. They look like they go well together.
