Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

I got mine too, and they are so gorgeous. My sister already stole the SS1 bard to be her current character, since she had a hard time finding a bard mini with that hair style

The good news is I got my minis yesterday.

Slipped into the post office shortly before they closed (so the post trucks had time to return there) and asked for my package. Got scolded because "the note says next business day after 10!" but she had it right under the counter.

The joys of the postal services seem to be an international experience.

 

The miniatures do look great! Can't wait to paint some of them, even though I got like twenty other projects. 

Is that hair on the back of Dragonborn's head?

 

My local post office guy likes it when I show up ten minutes before close, because it means shelf space for tomorrow...  Although I get most things delivered directly to the post office now, as it's easier that way (aka get notice in email, then head over after work and pick it up on the way home)

Got my figures!  *does happy dance*

These are the first Oathsworn minis I've gotten, and I have to say, the pictures don't do the figures justice, especially the Firbolg. That one is all kinds of awesome. Same with the Tabaxi. I wish I had pledged for more. Won't be making that mistake again.

Yes.  My packet arrived last week; I'm looking at the tiefling mage as the first piece to try. (And the resin, most likely....)

Your penance for such a sin is to buy the rest of the set(and the previous HISS and B&B minis ) at RETAIL price.

Mine are in and am tweeting them as I finish them. Good stuff and I suspect a lot of people who want heroic '25mm' would be happy with them.

I got mine a while back, they where great!  Now I just need to finish a certain Dragon so I can go back to painting normal minis...

Got a package with a new brush storage box from England today...  

 

I probably should check out the packing soon as it feels a bit heavier than bubble-wrap and packing peanuts should weigh...

      I'm uncertain if this thread should be here, or "Works in Progress" or even "Kickstarter". So moderators please move it about as required.
       
      Anyway, here is a link to a big article on the Osprey Publishing site by Mr Lovejoy of Oathsworn Miniatures on about how he is sculpting some new figures. I wish I had a fraction of his skills.

      I had to take the car in for some service today, so I threw my travel paint kit in my bag and grabbed a few Burrows and Badgers figures.  My brother recently decided that we should play Burrows and Badgers, and has a war band painted up.  I don't know if I'll have mine done by Gencon or not, but at least I now have a figure of my own.
       

       

       
      Of the figures which I picked for my first batch, one's a landsknecht and two are in tartans, so I decided I'd better start with somebody simpler.  When I checked the Oathsworn site for a hint on the weasel fur markings, I was amused to discover that I had decided on a very similar color scheme.  I am considering this to be a speed painting practice item; it only took me about 45 minutes to do.  As usual, I attracted quite a few curious passers-by.

      So...
      in an effort to like....actually not have 300 minis to paint by the time Bones 4 AND the critical role minis all hit me next year, I’ve decided to paint three a week, and always have a bigger work in progress going. This week I picked some low hanging fruit so I actually did more than that. 
       
      The ice troll was my bigger monster this week. 
       
      Air elemental i wanted to look like it was sorta tearing up the earth beneath ala a tornado....
       
      enjoy! C&C welcome!

      This past week, I painted Kassandra of the Blade from the Bones 3 Core Set.   A couple weeks ago, I found myself painting up a Disney Monopoly Snow White figure to command a unit of Dwarf Miners (Long story you can read about here: Princess Snow), and I was really struck by the simple but effective primary color scheme of Snow White's outfit.  I immediately decided I wanted to paint a Bones female fighter figure with the same palette.

       
           So, I pawed through my boxes of unpainted Bones, and fell upon Kassandra of the Blade as the most suitable of what I had.    The one thing I didn't like about her was the dual-wielding of swords.  So I decided to chop off her left hand and replace it before I started painting her.
            Then came the decision of what to replace it with.  I considered a shield for a while, then in looking through my box of Bones transplant donors I came across Sarah the Seeress, whose staff had gone to make my Highland Heroine into a Frostgrave Appentice, leaving her with just her left hand holding an orb of some sort. At first I thought, no, why would Snow White be holding a crystal ball; but then it hit me: paint it like an apple.      So it was an easy matter to cut off Kssandra's left hand at the wrist and glue on Sarah's hand with the orb.
       
       And here's the final result.  I'm really happy with how it turned out, and probably it's one of the best faces I've done to date.
