Thank you! So funny you both comment on the base. I hate basing! It is a piece of bark glued to a round base. I painted it brown and then dry brushed with browns and greys then sloshed with a wash. The rest is tufts and vines glued on with some real leaves that I used a leaf punch on (dried and coated in matte sealer). So thank you for thinking the base looks nice too!

It looks awesome!

Maybe you hate doing basing and did a quick job on it..but it works.

The items are placed in a convincing manner and it really enhances the mini!

Awesome!  I am always amazed at how small you can paint!

 

Like others have said the base is super cool!

Wow. Great work.

 

Ahh - it somehow makes me want to watch or play Silence again.

 

The basing, the figure - everything works perfectly together.

 

Thank you for sharing it with us!

You know honestly, the more I've started going down this hobby rabbit hole, the more I like basing in large part because of what you said right there. It doesn't often take much to really make the mini standout. I might spend a few weeks (mainly because I don't paint every day) working on a mini and it looks decent (for me) but then can whip out a base in less than an evening (once its been primed) and suddenly it looks loads better. One of my goals for this year is to start expanding my basing options more just to provide more flavor to my minis.

Funny thing is that when I looked at the unpainted miniature holding what looked to be a hockey stick, I figured it was a Little Boy. Be that as it may she is a WONDERFULLY painted AND based (bases are my thing) creation.

Your eye for colors & flowers are FANTASTICVERY WELL DONE!

That is one of my hobby resolutions for this year as well. I want to figure out how to make nice bases. I have to force myself to base things otherwise I would just have a ton of painted minis stuck to corks and Tropicana lids! Haha!

I think I originally thought it was a little boy (and it could be used for one) until I read her background story for Pathfinder.

It is a combination of good brushes and holding my breath! Haha! On paint day, my friend teases me by yelling at me to breathe and asking if I have passed out yet. He also brings me cups of coffee and says it is to help steady my hands. Funny guy!

 

I was cleaning out my laundry room the other day (which is where my shelving unit is that I store my hobby stuff) and my husband picked up my little container of bark and was going to throw it away. I practically tackled him!

Very nice.

 

I know she's cute and all, but I can't help feeling like I'm being lured into a trap...

 

She may make an appearance in the game I run. I haven't decided yet who I want her to be or how I want to use her. She does have that look of, "Oh, thank goodness I found someone. Can you help me? It's just right over this way....."

      Five years have passed; high time to update the Midgard Campaign Setting, and add Deep Magic, adventures, and player options galore!

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.

      Has anyone come up with stats for pathfinder for Ma'al Drakar?

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      Here's another recent paint.
      It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not.
      This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head."
       
      I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white.
      So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows.
      I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush.
       
      I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White.
       
      C&C Welcomed.
