"Stop Thief!" Mousling Diorama

Recommended Posts

This is my planned Mousling diorama for ReaperCon. The idea start forming at last year's con and evolved into this: two Mousling thieves getting caught robbing a Mousling wizard. The base is built and it and the Mouslings are primed. That is all that is done for now so lots of painting remains as well as adding in details. I am really excited for this one and everything that I have planned.

Mouslings are for me personally, at least not painting them.  I love to see them painted though and think they are super cute.  I think I am mostly intimidated by how small they are.

 

I am super looking forward to see your work on this!

I was a little intimated by the size as well when I painted my first one but it was a lot easier than I had imagined. Now I love painting them.

"Curse you, thieves! If I ever get you, you will regret what you did!"

"Cut it off, Grandpa. We're out of here."

 

This could so absoluetly be a scene from Critical Role. Haha. I love it. Great work so far!

Well that was tedious but worth it. The painting of the base is done. I sponged the stone color and did some washes on the walls. The wood was just some lines that I wet blended followed by some washes The tedious part was under lining every single stone and then highlighting them. There is a reason for the dark square but that is a surprise for later.

      Ok, painted one of these up a few months ago and just did the other 2 a couple weeks ago. Just picked up an airbrush so this was my first time trying out some zenithal highlighting. I'm pretty happy with how the new ones turned out.
       
      First the old one

       

       
      Then here is one of the new ones
       

       

       
      And the group photo

      Finished him up a week ago or so, but just got around to pics. Second attempt at NMM, not really happy with the results, but I suppose it works. Had further plans on doing OSL from the sword but was feeling finished by the time I got that far and decided good enough. May try and come back and add it in later though.

      These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!! 
       
      I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful! 
      After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them.

      Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!) 
      While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya! 
       
      Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it! 
       
      Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate.
       
      Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!

      I wanted to share this since I did not find many of these already painted when looking for reference photos, maybe it can help someone else! 
      I went super bold with this guy, as I tend to do lol! The pictures don't really show how gross those pustules are though lol!  They have a bit of nurgle's rot on them as well. 
       
      The basing was done with mostly natural elements! A real lichen laden stick, seed pods, fern leaves, along with some Army Painter Battlefields Grass Green and  Battlefield Rocks, as well as some basic
      clump foliage for filler! 
      Does anyone like to use natural materials for basing!? 
       
      C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

      Another one for a client of mine completed! He sent me a character illustration as inspiration for the mini. Really like this figure, and may pick him up myself, paint him in full military green for use with my IMEF Troopers!
