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?

      Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.
       
      First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

      I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 
       
      After I'm done with these three:
      I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn

      So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.

      I've started working in earnest on my diorama entry for ReaperCon... Nothing like waiting till the last minute...
       

       
      First I figured out placement, then carved out the wall.
       

       
      And now I'm working on actually painting it up.
       

       
      I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull off the OSL effect or not.

      Magically Distracted
       
      She sat on her favorite stool, having gotten mostly undressed and relaxed, gently swirling the goblet of red wine in her hand as she read through the grimore in her lap... closing her eyes she gently concentrated on the spell that was before her... suddenly the books piled around her lifted up in the air as if they had minds of their own and were caught in a small windstorm. She giggled to herself and took another long drink of the wine from her goblet and continued to study...
       
      ---------------------
       
      This was a really fun project that I started up in April of this year. My goal was to get her done in time for the 'eavier metal online contest (Facebook) and see if I could place or perhaps get a random draw. I ended up uploading her about 10 minutes late, so I have no idea at the time of doing this post if she will be considered in the contest or if she will be disqualified. Either way, I had fun, I had tons of amazing feedback during the WIP and a lot of people cheering me on to get it finished.
       
      I present to you "Magically Distracted" a NSFW Kingdom Death figure in the 54mm scale, she is a limited edition resin release. Please feel free to give your comments and critiques. I'm going to check and see if I am allowed to bring a nude figure to ReaperCon this year for entry into their painters contest or not. If not, she'll stay home as I do have plenty of other things to enter as well. A few firsts on this one, I did some elaborate tattoos, magical floating books, writing in books in freehand, a completely nude figure, texturing pattern, Venus dimples, and last but not least sheer stockings (which were a lot of fun and a lot of work!).
       
      First - pics that are SFW and then I'll post some NSFW links (special thanks to @Thrym for hooking me up with his site for hosting as Facebook links expire) and for helping me out with the really cool title placard).

      OK, so this is one of those "good enough!" moments and I am calling this done! This, actually being the stage for many of my firsts.. My first diorama for starters, my first attempt at making a wire-tree, the first time I used an airbrush and my first (albeit failed) entry to a competition. And it is the moment to call it quits, declare it finished and present to you for much desired C&C.
       

       
      Unfortunately my photography is still very much lacking :(
       

       

       

       

       
      Oh and the reason I couldn't make it to the competition is that I have to go on a business trip abroad on the very day that it will be held.. Oh well, there is always next year I guess..
       
      Thanks for looking.
