"The 'Bot Shop" Bombshell Miniatures Diorama

I like the new shop.   

 

Looking at the walls the crumbling plaster look is perfect.

 

The new window means we will see more of the interior and thus more stuff within the shop which can only lead to more eye candy for your loving fans! :wub:

 

I am happy the crumbling plaster look came across, that is what I was after. It still needs refining but it is good to know I am on the right track. That is exactly why I decided to possibly ruin everything by making the window. I have posters I want to put on the walls that would have been difficult to see otherwise. Downside is that now I have one less wall to put them on.

Ooh, I see the wrench is made by Channellock. Nice choice!

 

Particularly for the color, I dig the blue.

Interesting, it is almost the exact color of Channellock tools, purely unintentional on my part. I went the blue as the walls are a pale blue and I wanted to bring a like color onto Maelee. Likewise, the base will have some of the olive green, pink, and the brighter blue on it.

Her skin tones are wonderful and her face is done beautiful.  Super impressive.

I have fallen back on commenting this one so badly, I will never be able to catch up to this

 

Let's see ...

 

I am looking forward to seeing the window finished.

 

But I am not buying that rusty (?) exterior wall. For me the colour of the wall doesn't look like it supports rust. It looks more like a normal house wall, so for me using rust on it doesn't work.

 

The mechanic ... hm. I told you that before, but here I go again: I guess I put away my brushes, darken my room and cry for the rest of my life. This is the fourth week in a row a cannot paint and as of now that will continue until early January - and what do I see? You launch such a beautiful girl. Man, if it wasn't so sad for my ego, I would cheer to you. Well - I do. This is awesome and I totally look forward to seeing her with all those other miniatures.

 

So continue and get her done!

Yeah, I have been debating the rust on the wall as well. I was going for a post apoc scene using Fallout 4 as inspiration but the buildings in there have more rust than I did and it worked better with the other wall that also has rust. Now it is just the one and quite a bit of it was going to be covered up with scavenged road signs anyways. I think I will paint over it and just dirty it up with washes and pigment. Who knows, maybe it was repainted semi recently. I am also going to try to lighten up the metals as it is too dark and shinny for old, rusted corrugated metal.

The problem I have got with this whole wall is that it looks more like a concrete wall than a metal one.

 

But if you say you have got a solution for it, then I'll be waiting for your next steps.

Well, I was going for a painted metal look, they are too thin to be concrete. I think I will paint over the rust and go from there. I found the screen shot below that sort of show the look that i would like. As you can see there is actually little rust and it is not in big splotches like I did. I think I can replicate something similar but I have very little time and a million things to do so we will see what happens.

      Even the cold North has it brief moment of Spring.
      The Ice will never melt completely, but the small rise in temperature will melt some, giving the scarse plantlife a chance to sprout.
      Of course melting ice will also mean that large chunks will fall and this can surprise even the most experienced Yeti Chieftain as we see here.
       
      Our Yeti Chieftain Gorm was distracted by his thoughts of a certain female of the species, it is Spring after all...when he found himself too close to a ice mountain.
      A sudden crackling sound and a large chunk came down.
      Gorm found himself paralyzed with fear, and this would be his doom.

      Just finished this for my sister! Hope it arrives close ish to Christmas but at least it's finally done - only been planning it since last year or so.
       
      These are the Darksword minis Owlbear and cubs, as my sissy has two kids, and we joke a lot about going all momma bear, I thought this would be perfect for her :D She's also a hunter so a woodland scene is right up her alley.
       
      Not my best job tbh, I'm pleased it came out ok but was hoping to get more detail etc in. I'd wanted to make the trees but no time =/ Better to get it done than sit on it another year.
       



       
      It's in a softball display case, on a wood base I picked up at Michaels. So no need to dust!

      I finally got around to decorating the mantle this year.  Nothing's newly painted, just gathered together for once.

      Robots of standard tabletop size: Reaper's ALF-24 (50138) and Marie, She-Bot (50246). These models are manufactured to work as humanoid assistants for general-purpose work, especially work that requires human interaction that humans don't particularly want to do.  

      And here are a pair of smaller models: Bombshell's HLP-R and MIN-E bots. These two were created for small-quarters general purpose operations, and also for interactions with children. (Children will trust little buddies more than they will grown-up Authority Figures, was the idea.) Side note: I love that the HLP-R bot has the same feet design as the Hydra WarBot, and the fist-pump on that MIN-E bot is great. That little metal tic-tac is adorable. 


      And here's the whole nuclear-powered family! 



      Side note two: I would totally read this cheap paperback if I found it yellowing in a used bookstore:

      Finally got around to take pictures of my Warhammer diorama.
      I entered it into a local competition, and was lucky enough to win the Warhammer category. Thanks to everyone who wrote a comment in the WIP thread.
      Link here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81383-warhammer-diorama-pic-heavy/
       
      ..Sorry for the overload of pictures!  -could'nt help myself..
       
      Although on these pictures I can see many mistakes, I am quite happy with it.
      Hope you enjoy it, and as always any comment, critiq or question is welcome.
