Assembled and gap filled and modified!

 

I'm about 12 hours into this project now. 

 

Next up is to allow everything to cure and then wash off with warm soapy water to remove mold releases and finger oils. Then I'll prime everything at the same time.

 

 

The Heroines! Yay!!! :winkthumbs:

An idea occurred last night while talking to Thrym about my project plans. 

 

I am going to cut the demon in half at the waist and have him half-formed coming up from the 9 hells in the summoning circle with flames and smoke issuing forth and surrounding him. 

 

Giving it more a feel of motion, danger, dynamics, and drama. 

 

I'm also trying to decide on the layout so it's compact but not crowded and not so large that things get lost or it's too big to fit in my painted figs carry case.

If anyone else wants help planning dioramas, etc. please feel free to hit me up on social media or ping me for help on here.  The new @membername feature is nice for getting people's attention.

 

I may not have a lot of time to work on my projects but it's not really a huge thing to chat on instant messengers apps about stuff.

 

Back to the WIP!

Would be cool too to rework the smaller set of arms so that they are bent, elbows up and palms on the floor as if he's pushing himself up.

Yeah! I may have to either heat and reposition or cut and reposition. Will look at it tonight. ::D:

Just wondering why the paladin is holding the sword that way...

I looks to me like she is going to try and stab something with it as if it was a dagger....

Other than that, 

Lloth's blessing upon the project!

It reminds me of the original Conan the Barbarian movies where he shows off and goes through different movements with his sword. 

 

I liked the sword and that the hand was a left hand so I went through with the conversion even if it looks a tad bit off or odd. Think of it as her swinging and reversing grip in the middle of a dramatic battle. :;):

 

Thanks for the blessings of the spider queen!

 

ETA:

If everyone doesn't like the paladin's new sword I can still go with something else. I'm up for suggestions.

After thinking about it for the last few days, I realized that George hit the nail on the head for me with regards to the paladin's modification. I wasn't 100% happy with the angle of the sword and how big it is in relation to the figure itself. So, a few moments ago I snipped the sword off and am putting a different sword on it with a different pommel. Right now I'm looking through my bits box to find the right pommel with the blade already attached.

 

Thanks for pointing it out to me, George!

Here's the new sword, it looks better in scale and still has the decorative elements I was after.

 

Working with such tiny pins and bits is very tough to do! I'll wash it off and prime all of them today. I'm also going to cut the demon off at the waist as the more I think about that summoning up from the 9 hells surrounded by smoke and fire, the more I like it. This will also take some more modifications for the lower set of arms, so I'll cut them off and re-position so it looks like he's climbing up as Andy suggested.

Thoughts thus far?

Here we go, cut the demon in half at the waist as I said I was going to do and repositioned both lower arms to give him the dynamics of motion that he was struggling to be summoned and pull himself up out of the nine hells.

I love what you're doing here in all regards except one.

 

The paladin's grip on her shield is wonky.  That's how you either a). Hold a buckler, or b) throw a shield.  A kite shield should be flat against her forearm...unless she is going to have an enemy ripping her shield off her arm, or an ally helping her put on her shield.

Thank you. 

 

This particular shield I really liked for its design elements. The design is vertical and it looked strange to me when I tried to align it where it would be turned to be strapped to her arm. I'll look at kite shields a bit closer as I still have time to modify it or even change out the shield for one that may fit her arm better.

Kite Shield:

You have the option of orienting the shield with the long axis pointing toward the ground or elbow.

 

Heater Shield

Based on the the size of that shield, and the paladin's cloak, you could probably make the current shield work with a minor modification.

After feedback about odd shield placement. I found a shield that actually matches the sword and attached to the right arm with superglue and then I used some green stuff to sculpt the leather straps that her arm would go through and hand would hold onto while fighting. 

 

I think it looks a lot better and I'm happier with this shield as the matching is good for my OCD!

 

What do you all think?

      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!
