Awesome.

Stay true to the movie or people might miss the point.

If you really wanna set the scene, have a green background behind the minis perhaps? Either way this one will be a fun piece.

Yeah, I've been trying to figure out what to do with that. I want it to be view-able in the round, so I don't really want a background.  I think I am going to have a lot of big leaved vegetation and such that you peer through/over to view the scene.

Love the idea. I'd go with the movie over realism especially if you're entitling it "Hakuna Matata"

Cool.  Democracy in action. 

 

In this case, it was REALLY easy since Democracy agreed with my initial thoughts.

Is the log gonna be an actual chunk of a tree? How long, if so?

No, I'm going to sculpt it out of GS.  At this point I plan on sculpting everything, including basing elements. It will likely be 90+% putty and metal.

 

As for length, as short as possible, while still selling the scene, probably around 5 inches.

 

Look, fern leaves happened at lunch today:

PVC pipe with 2 inch diameter Reaper circular bases as blackout end caps?  Then texture that with a layer of greenstuff for the log?

      Hello fine people (and other assorted things) of the Reaper forum!
       
      Continuing in our project of teaming up to show you two different methods to go about painting the same miniature, Buglips and I decided that we would do a WIP thread for Con Crud, Convention Zombie from the 2017 Reapercon swag bag! He's a great little figure, sculpted by Gene Van Horne, that we thought we could have some fun with.
       
      This will be our second shared WIP thread in this series of ours, in case you missed it, check out our first one where we painted Thanis the Bonecaller:
       
      As with that one, I will be covering my usual method of painting for display, and Buglips will be approaching the figure with his own usual "fast-but-decent method." As with the last one, Buglips' method will be much faster than mine will be and you'll get to see where our two styles diverge. We will be sharing our own issues, thoughts and methods with you in the hopes that someone will find such things useful.
       
      So on to the mini!
      Here's my Con Crud, fresh out of his blister:

       
      I prepped him in my usual way, with some diamond files to grind off the mold lines and bit of flash that you can see on his outstretched foot and hand. He has some notable mold lines through his hair and back and down the left (his left) side of his face. I'll show you throughout the process how I'll tackle those.
       
      So here he is after I primed him with Reaper's Brush-On Primer in white, thinned down with some water. As usual, I only did one thin coat so as not to obscure the details on him and I took a couple of additional shots from different angles so you can see some of the mold lines that I'll need to work on a little more down the road.

      Entry four of four at ReaperCon.  Another great sculpt from Greebo Games.  I had a lot of fun with the flames, and was my first go with wet blending.

      This was an old Soda Pop miniature that I think I received as a promo.  It's been setting in a box for 10+ years as one of those models that was waiting for me to be "good enough".  He was a blast to paint, and I was kind of amazed at how well flesh tones worked for hair color.  Entry three of four at ReaperCon.

      This is the end result of my WIP thread 
      This was the first bust I had painted, and the second of four entries at ReaperCon.
