This is so awsome!!

 

An idea for the walls, if you want more details:  some of the plaster on walls may haven falen off,and reveals the bricks/stones underneath.. to match the rusty railing.

I like the idea, but probably too late to do now with that red oxide paste already in place. I would've had to have planned that before putting the paste on.

Milliput to make the stone flooring. Attached upper balcony railing and added some sconces (they were bits of from the jewelry section at Michael's IIRC).

I'm still working on the railing going down the steps, it's rather difficult to get just right. I also want to wait to attach the columns until after I've painted the wall and doors because it'd be a PITA to paint them with the columns in the way. Probably paint the columns before attaching as well now that I think about it.

The sconces really adds some life to the scene. And I like the stone work with different sizes and shapes.

 

you could maybe only do half the railing on the stairs, as the rest could have fallen off.. depending om how trashy you want the place to be.

Thank you ::):

 

I have the railing almost ready to go. Need to allow this milliput to cure tonight and then I'll show the railing I'm going with. It uses a large creature's skull and I used copper wire to be able to bend into shape where it looks good as a hand rail.

Perhaps it's late to ask this -- but why does the Lair of Evil have a railing?  Cackling Overlords of Doom are not known for their compliance with workplace safety regulations.

It wasn't always The Keeper's home. It used to be an opulent home of a rich Baron. It's now fallen into disrepair and vile acts of evil.

Added the railing with a bannister made from a cyclops skull and then brass etch bent to make a holder to the wall on balcony and give more realism. I also use Green Liner on the Frog Demon as a primer/base coat.

I think all I need to do now is add the chain/hook from the balcony and then smooth out the sides/edges of the pink foam with some paste. Then I'll be ready to prime it all and start painting the base and figures.

The copper wire for the banister is a brilliant idea. And  cyclops skull is an awesome touch.::D:

Thank you on both accounts!

 

I had to add a bit of my skullz fetish right?? BWHAHAHAHAH! 

 

Really, I like to keep things themed and add some cool little decorative elements whenever I can.  That copper wire wasn't easy to bend just right to get it where I wanted for the railing, took me 2 days of tinkering with wires to get it to look like like that. Now I gotta get that chain/hook hanging from the railing above and see what everyone thinks about it. I'll do a mock-up first in a few minutes as soon as I find that chain I'm thinking about.

Chain hook works but I think the stair railing could use a couple of supports.

Thanks!

 

Hmm, I wanted to keep it as open as possible and attaching anything now could be nigh impossible without destroying what I've already done and have glued down.

      After a long nights work at the Lucky Sunrise Inn, Eric the Bard stepped out of the back-stage door, he had rather heavy bag of gold hanging in his belt, it had been a good night. The streets were empty, and he began the walk home, but as he turned the first corner he saw the most beautifull sunrise over the roof tops. He just had to take his hat off and admire the sight...
       
      Two old minis, probaly Ral Partha.
      The base is scratch build, mainly from sculpting clay, a bit of wire and green stuff and short piece of plastic tube. The skull and the 'Lucky'-sign (the shield) is from the bits box.
      I tried to work with a bit of NMM, but I'm too satisfied with it. Mostly the handle on the bards sword is a bit off.
      But in overall I'm happy with it, and it was a lot of fun to paint, I'm just a sucker of OSL so hope the effect is visible.
       
      Any kind critiq is more than welcome, thanks for looking.

      This will be yet another Undead /Demon Army.
      ( what can I say? I love evil miniatures).
       
      This army has an Asian theme.
      Undead Samurai
      Oni
      Asian Dragons
      Some living Asian Allies.
      Kirin
       
      Hope you will enjoy  it.
       
      I will paint slowly and it may take a while, but I'm putting this out here to start.
      Since I backed Zentih's Kensei Undead KS I have a few of the Undead Samurai and Demons waiting
      I also have the Grenadier Wind Dragon ( alas without the two humans) and the Grenadier Imperial Dragon of the Eleven Celestial Dynasties
      And some Living Samurai.
      Also a nice Asian Graveyard Set.
       
      Some stuff that has to get painted soon..

      So back to reposting my minis after the account crash.
       
      This is Freebooter winged Vampire Raven, sh swoops down from this ruin to attack Hasslefree's Gen.
      I removed Gen's horns, I wanted her to look more human.
       
      Gen's pics are linked cause, nude...mammal parts,
       
      I like the wings, but overall I'm not so proud of this.
      Around this time ( years ago) I noticed my eyesight getting worse.
      Nowadays I use a visor.

      I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. 
       
      I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!

      I put together this little diorama for Vegascat for the Secret Sophie this year.  He had expressed an interest in fantasy or steampunk and I wanted to give him something that would work for either.  The concept is a whos hunting who in a dark hall or around a building corner.  I left the figures attached with wax instead of gluing them down incase Vegascat wanted to use them in a campaign
       
      I am afraid that recently my skills have fallen off some and it has been a really busy year.  I did find a few spots in the pictures that needed touchup and got them before I sent them out but its still rougher than I would really like (sorry bout that  I am beginning to think I really need glasses) .  I did think that the overall scene came out really well and in particular, the use of a hemming pin as the silver arrow added a really nice highlight and effect.    the actual walls are from some old mage knight dungeon tiles that I picked up years ago.  I literally have hundreds of them and this was an opportunity to use a few up. 
       
      Anyway, here are the pictures,  Enjoy!
