You are right.  He deserves better basing.  I got in the habit of not putting much effort into the basing because the players in my D&D game tend to be very rough on miniatures.  For example, pushing them around the board with the tip of a felt marker (why bother putting the lid back on...grrr).  I need to get back into the habit of giving the miniatures the proper finishing touches. 

 

Anyway, I gave him a quick and dirty basing upgrade.  As a druid, once the players are done murdering him, he should get to spend the rest of his existence on a shelf surrounded by the wuids, while drinking fermented fluids.  Or, barring that, at least surrounded by a few little red flowers.

Cloak, robe, and leathers. All great work!

 

I especially like your work on his face and beard.

The little extra work on the base really improves an already very nice figure!

      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!
