I just realized that I'd been painting but had not posted any of them. :-)
I like this mini, but I often struggled with the impression that she was putting her head on for the day. :-)
Painting her was fun, but I had a lot of problems with her mold lines, and she came out very muddy in some ways.
I needed a bunch of female figures for an RPG set in the 1920s, and I needed them fast and cheap. Sunday I ordered some Heroclix for a buck each, and by Wed evening they were in my hands. I need to modify the figures to have longer dresses appropriate for the period when the game is set.
First thing I did was cut them off at the feet. I found a hobby knife worked well. A sharp hobby knife would work better.
I used two part epoxy putty to make skirts. I just smooshed it on and smoothed it out. I should have started with a blob between the legs and let it dry overnight for stability.
Next: primer, paint and bases.
Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs
Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human.
Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers...
So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight.
After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean.
I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know!
