I did not notice the back side while at ReaperCon. So cool.

I adore this diorama! It is thoroughly cute and fabulous! The portrait of the wizard is wonderful! The detail on the wizard's glasses is fantastic. 

 

Feedback? You are somewhat inconsistent with use of contrast. Look at the portrait of the wizard - lots of contrast in the face, and well distributed. The thief next to the portrait has a lot of contrast like that too. He has a ton of detail with contrast and color. The wizard himself however has less contrast, or not as distributed. The beard has black and white, but less contoured. The pointy hat is also low on contrast. 

 

All much more nitpicky details, but you asked for some feedback so... tada! Truly, the diorama is awesome though. It is really enjoyable to see the storytelling detail you put into this.

I love the diorama, and especially the portrait. Wonderful job !

 

Thank you! The portrait was a gamble as I really suck when it comes to 2d painting. I really wanted to do it and so I cheated by painting over the black and white photo from the Reaper store. That gave me an idea of where to place the shadows and highlighting.

Thanks! I always like to add something to backside as an "easter egg" of sorts. Also I liked the idea of the wizard catching the one thief but the other escapes with some loot.

The mouseling minis are a great addition to any collection and this diorama is full of character

 

Thank you. Yeah, the mouslings are awesome. I wasn't sure about them at first but after painting my first one, I fell in love.

      Well, at least he didn't end up on my shelf of shame.  Some days my eyes and hands just aren't up to the job.  I also learned today that blending metallics is really hard.  Much more practice is needed.  I am pleased with the way the lighting effect worked out, though.

      After a long nights work at the Lucky Sunrise Inn, Eric the Bard stepped out of the back-stage door, he had rather heavy bag of gold hanging in his belt, it had been a good night. The streets were empty, and he began the walk home, but as he turned the first corner he saw the most beautifull sunrise over the roof tops. He just had to take his hat off and admire the sight...
       
      Two old minis, probaly Ral Partha.
      The base is scratch build, mainly from sculpting clay, a bit of wire and green stuff and short piece of plastic tube. The skull and the 'Lucky'-sign (the shield) is from the bits box.
      I tried to work with a bit of NMM, but I'm too satisfied with it. Mostly the handle on the bards sword is a bit off.
      But in overall I'm happy with it, and it was a lot of fun to paint, I'm just a sucker of OSL so hope the effect is visible.
       
      Any kind critiq is more than welcome, thanks for looking.

      These were supposed to be quick paints but somehow I still managed to take near 3 weeks to finish them. Really like the Bandits but thought they needed a little ranged fire power, so I added a couple of old GW archers to the gang.
       
      Now they just need a catchy name...

      For my next terrain painting I went for most of the graveyard decor from the Bones line. I still have the crypt and fences, maybe later. :)

      Since I don't have enough projects on the go, I decided to start another one.  When the Bones III Kickstarter came around I really liked the Blackstar Corsairs, so much I ordered two sets.
      When the giant box o' Bones arrived I was surprised to see them on their sprues still and in pieces. Not a problem, it just meant I couldn't play with them, err, inspect them when I was sorting my figs.  So they all went in a Ziploc.
      Today while pondering which project to work on I noticed them (they were hiding behind another project I have't even started a WIP on yet....).
      And tonight while pondering how the Olympics ruin TV for everyone, even when it is night where the Olympics are being held, I decided to go take a look at them.
       
      I found it interesting that all 5 come with the same "accessory" sprue, which contains a bayonet, a belt of grenades?, the visor, a sheathed knife and a gun with right hand.
      But 80076 and 80080 come with the same gun on their parts sprue as well.  So you end up with a couple extra guns.
      Each guy comes in 4 parts btw, lower torso, upper torso and each arm.  My plan is to do the first 5 as designed, then do some mods on the other 5.  May need to look for some weapons to swap.
       
      At this point these guys are just clipped and friction fitted.  I'll get them cleaned up and glued together sometime soon.  The middle 3 will likely need the right arm and weapon left off until after painting the body.
      Not sure if I'll use all of the accessories on all of them or not.
       
      I'm very happy with these guys, glad I got 2 sets.  They will likely play a role in my Savage Rifts campaign at some point.  And maybe the IMEF have a new enemy to battle....
