Following the conclusion of Storm King's Thunder, our group has started The Curse of Strahd, and I decided to play a thief. Going through my collection of minis, the River Widow mini from ReaperCon called out to me. As usual, after cleaning the few bits of flash and mold lines, I paused... How did I want to base her. I've made extensive use of the Ruined Temple Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku... but for this game I decided that I was going to use the Fishscale brick pattern which I'd picked up during their Black Friday sale. I clipped the tab connecting her feet, leaving only 2 spikes from each foot to anchor her into the greenstuff.
Once the greenstuff had cured, I glued her in place, and after waiting for the superglue to dry, I primed her with Reaper's Brown Liner. I then immediately tackled her eyes, trying to mirror what Derek did on his. Seriously check this out, it's amazing...
So... I didn't quite achieve this, but it's probably the closest I've ever managed. Also I don't have a camera (or the skill) to capture a pic of this quality.
I basecoated her flesh with Ruddy Flesh, and then used Tanned Shadow on top of that. The bodice is based with Rich Indigo with Burgundy Wine over it. Her hair and lips are Auburn Shadow.
So far, so good, but I've got a lot more work to go.

Among my first finished minis of 2019 (finished in, some started...well, this century), a lot didn't fit into any category. Here's the random ones.
The Ladies (mostly Reaper)
60036: Visbaronetess Delour Aulamaxa
03845: Mina Splinterheart - River Widows Captain
07012: Dungeon Dwellers: Caerindra Thistlemoor
03061: Anushka, Female Fighter
I now realize this is a Warmachine Pirate, not Reaper...but she snuck into the group shot already!
The Jason Wiebe tribute miniature, "Johann Rumbleguts". I only noticed the missing part of the base in the photos...time for new glasses.
50268: Bill Foster, Lumberjack
A very strange miniature, 02044: Cadwalon. He's supposedly an ugly human but he's Halfling sized!
And trailing far behind with all the equipment for these weirdos, the simple Pack Mule
I decided to paint a few mouslings as Christmas presents for people. For the most part I think they turned out decent. The Santa was a little rushed so he's a little less detailed than I would have liked. And yes, I did get the basing idea for Asiago Jones from a diorama at Reaper Con.
It was also my first time playing around with basing. I'm having a hard time with putting on a second layer of basing materials, like the snow over the grass on the Santa. Maybe I didn't wait long enough between layers but trying to spread glue on the grass ended up just pulling up a bunch of the grass. So suggestions and thoughts are welcome.
