Did another random pull from the Box of Yesteryears, this time drawing yet another oldie, Nicole of the Blade:
Nice bright pics this time, but they have washed out the darks slightly.
So. Garrity Eyes strike again, and these were the smallest yet.
The first thing that caught my eye was her chain mail. In the past this has been steel/silver, so I wanted to change it up and do a nice bronze. Unfortunately, the closest I had was Antique Gold, so I went with that.
Basically everything not flesh or hair got a base coat of Cloudy Gray, then went metallic with Honed Steel, Blade Steel, and Polished Silver, with Antique Gold for the filigree work and the dragon on the shield. Then hit everything with a light Black Ink wash to grunge it up and fill the cracks, and a little bit heavier to line around her legs and skirt and such.
Her hair is a mix of 3:1 Desert Sand and Leather Brown, which I only note because I don’t want to forget it. Again. And finally some purple for her hair ribbon to counter the grungy and morose.
For the Company of Wolves:
A real live one:
This is the 77437 Winter Wolf from the third Reaper Bones kickstarter. And about the size of a horse, so I think of it as a werewolf’s full wolf form. Or a Dire Wolf as needs be.
Miniature sculpted by Sandra Garrity.
Bespoke 50x25mm 3D printed base.
and the real dead ones
Two pairs of 77533 Dread Wolves from the Graveyard Expansion from the Bones 3 KS.
One pair brown and one pair grey. Ended up rather samey…Too dark perhaps.
Bespoke 35x25mm 3D printed bases.
In the immortal words of Lord Flashheart: "Woof Woof!"
Decided to have some fun today as I was digging thru my figures pulling out stuff I am going to put in the BOGW. I ran across the hydra and remembered that next weekend I planned on throwing my d&d players up against one.
3-4 hours later I have a painted up hydra on a scenic base from secret weapon miniatures. Added some water effects for a tiny swampy pond beneath it.
I’d love to hear your C&C!
well, it seems to have been not quite a year since my last post, and a bit longer since my last post to Show Off. In the meantime, Nissiana and I have purchased a house, which ate most of the Fall, Winter and Spring, and our Summer has been, per usual, filled with rehearsals and performances. Although I am currently imbroiled with a production of "The Three Musketeers," I've managed to unpack some paint kit and brought it to work. My recent lunch breaks have yielded a passel of kobolds and a pile of rats, both of which will likely lurk the basements of Sharn (or the waste drain of an alchemist's lab, in the case of that one rat) soon enough.
Anyway, these are all to a very rough "look ma, I finished!" standard, mostly just to knock some rust off my brushes. Hope you enjoy.
Penny bases will be blacked eventually.
I saw this post from Sculptor Sandra Garrity reposted by one of the places I follow on facebook, talking about a company who is allegedly producing miniatures she owns the IP on(from the Ex-Grenadier) without her permission
I have given a lot of thought to what to say about Mirliton/Stefano Grazzini's continued illegal production and sale of my figures.
Despite being notified repe...atedly since 2006, and being sent legal documents showing that I, and now also Gin Fritter at Armorcast, legally own certain Ex-Grenadier figures, Mirliton/ (Stefano Grazzini) brazenly continues to sell our figures without our permission. His saying that he will take this matter up with me privately is a joke! Mr.Grazzini has failed to contact me or respond to my emails.His refusal to stop producing my figures, and respond to my emails, shows he has no intention of doing the honest, reputable thing. He knows it would be prohibitively expensive for Armorcast and me to take legal action. Since he is in Italy, he just does whatever he pleases.
Mr Grazzini, if you are the reputable person that, you claim to be, stop selling the Ex-Grenadier figures that Armorcast and I legally own. It is now up to you to do the right thing and respect our intellectual property rights.
I know that in the past I've seen the company recommended as a source of some of the old Grenadier range (and may well have recommended it myself) when people who are looking for them ask, but given what's said above I'd hesitate to do so now as I don't approve of unauthorised copying of other peoples work for profit
Now I know this is only one side of the story, and that the IP of some stuff from defunct companies becomes complex (eg Ral Partha Europe is still legitimately able to manufacture minis that Ral Partha itself lost the rights to when it folded/got bought), but where there are issues because of this you've got to at least talk about things (after all if you're convinced what you're doing is legit, why not say so and provide the evidence)
