That dragon is the "die young and leave good corpse" type.

VERY NICE START! The Young Ladies have made the most of their introduction to miniatures. I can only imagine what their works will look like in a few years.

I'm hoping I can send some home with them and that they will keep it up or at least keep it up when they come to visit. Oldest niece told me that her dad used to paint and put together minis so maybe they can do it together too.

My little girls are similar ages (8 & 10) and they also paint from time to time.  They're finally at the point where if I set them up with a disposable wet palette they can manage mostly on their own.  The 10 year old also took to the idea of writing down the colors she used so that she'd know later.  Right now they're working on some Bones giantesses, for some reason the smaller things like the mouselings intimidate them. 

 

Yay for introducing more kids to the hobby!  ^_^

Anytime someone manages to keep children still long enough to paint something is already an achievement.

 

Then they amaze you with their color selections.

      My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits.  It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc.  We get really good turnout.  The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations.  All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors.  It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting.  A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away.  I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. 
       
      So here is this year's class:
       
      (BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones3 core that you do not want, find me at Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      I apologize to anyone having trouble loading this, it seems the forum software wants to make my replies into one giant post....

      As part of this month's getting to know you thread a challenge was proposed, try a technique you've never done before. For me that was OSL. So I used the Mousling Druid to attempt this. For a first try I don't think it turned out too bad. The lighting in my room isn't great so I hope it reads okay.

      Going to use this guy as my first attempt at OSL. This was inspired by Talespinner's challenge in the getting to know each other thread.

      So I saw Janan and saw this in my head. I bought the piece and modded it to fit as you can see here. I have conferred with Ub3r about it a bit and I still can not find what I'm looking for. 
       
      Attitude: Contemplation after a long battle and/or about to step into the final battle. She is tired but not worn out. She is resolute to see this to the end but deep down wishes it would have never come to pass.
       
      Artistic Direction: In the last two photo's you will see some lighting coming from the right side of the image (One closer than the other). The idea is to to have OSL in the photo. The shadows cast will also be painted. 
      The metal piece you see in the lower three is a place holder (obviously).  I can't seem to focus the image in my head to figure out who or what is standing there I bought slain miniature from Other World miniatures and didn't like how big they are on the Vignette base I was thinking of using Derek the Dim from Red-Box-Games. The pose and face of the miniature kind of has that, "I challenge you" appearance. I bought the Paladin Initiate and he was huge and didn't fit very well. The War Maiden did not either. I also thought, if I could find another figure that is standing at the bottom who fought with her in the battle. They too are tired yet contemplative about the end of the battle. My original thought was someone leaning on a weapon.  Would like some help on this from my fellow Formnite and see what you think. I have not found a miniature that fits yet and goes with the scale of Janan. Janan seems to be a much much smaller miniature than normal. like a true 25mm (bottom of feet to eye) size. That is why I am looking at RBG miniatures as Tre Manor sculpts in small portions, hands, eyes and feet.
