Added some Linen White, glazed Sunlight Yellow over all the metal, then some more Linen White. Also mixed up Blackened Brown with Dragon Blue for some grey, and based the silver metals and glazed some shadows onto her pants.

Definitely starting to panic a bit, given the monkey and the stupid bird... This all needs to be done a week from today. I could take her home over the weekend, but I won't actually have much time. With a half hour each lunch, and I can get an hour after work each day... That's close to eight hours. That's... Time... Hoo boy.

So, I made a list this morning of what still needs to happen to call this one done:

IMG_20180309_124418747.thumb.jpg.b2cc2e7bd79b39e95ec715ecb77f2e3a.jpg

The stars indicate items that take more time or energy.

 

Lots left to do, but I got a bit done today. Worked on some greys during lunch, including the white metals, the conch shell and a bit of the monkey's skull and Maria's hair.

The grey starts off as Walnut Brown and Dragon Blue, then slowly adds Ghost White.

 

After work, I knew Nissiana wouldn't be home until late, so I decided to just stay at the office and paint for a while. Some of my co-workers think I'm nuts, staying late on a Friday, but I can't do this model at home or it'd ruin the surprise, so...

"Finished" the white NMM (I don't have any Pure White in my kit at work, which I will remedy on Monday), did some work I'm happy with on the shell and can likely call it done, and set in on the pillows. I'm really happy with the two pirate flags. I also tweaked some of the leathers, specifically her shoulders.

 

Still plenty to do, but I'm really happy to have gotten a long session in!

Hokay! Today I dealt with the Monday Blues by painting blue during lunch. Brightened up some highlights, still need to go in with deeper shadows on some things, especially the lining on the chest lid.

And I wasn't able to stay very long after work today, but I was able to get assembly done (except for the bird), and I broke out the Green Stuff to build the cockatoo's crest.

IMG_20180312_164950685.thumb.jpg.d7eafadaaa16af39159510829394f880.jpg

Tomorrow morning I will use a knife to trim up the crest, and lunchtime will likely be the blue shadows.

she is going to love this!

 

Are you planning on doing more to the base itself?

 

I would suggest a dark (walnut maybe) stain to the wood part to help border the sand.

Thanks!

 

If the plinth were a little higher quality wood, and if I had been a bit more careful ten years ago with my prep, I would absolutely stain and drop some poly on the wood. As it is, I think a black paint and some gloss varnish is what I'm going to do with it.

 

I also intend to do some water effects, but I doubt I'll have time before Friday...so that may be an IOU in the package, and something for me to do this weekend after she's seen the paint.

Lunch today was a symphony of browns, working on her sword scabbard, hair and the NMM on the chest lid.

And after work, I spent more time with brown to work on the monkey's face. I also glazed yellow onto the NMM I'd missed before, and added blue to the pillow fringe.

IMG_20180313_181706970.thumb.jpg.b1dcee06cf517867701b82c7a4f5fbbc.jpg

 

Tomorrow, I'll get the last highlights into her hair and the monkey's fur, and hopefully start laying the color in on the bird. I also need to highlight the blue fringe.

 

I also need to remember to bring my black artists acrylics from home to paint the base.

Lots of touching up today, including some gap filling under the monkey's butt, blacking the rim of the base and converting some oopsies here and there.

 

Also highlighted the blue fringe on the pillows and basecoated all the remaining Coral things, plus the last highlights on her hair and the monkey's fur. The photos here were taken over the course of the day, I painted before work, during lunch and after work... So these are in time stamp order, close to two and a half hours worth of painting.

Almost done, it's pretty much just little things from here. If you see anything major, please speak up!

 

Here's my to-do list for tomorrow. If I must, I can get in a last lunch session on Friday, but at most I think I have two and a half hours left to paint.

Happy to say, I got this one finished up in time to give to Nissiana today, and she likes the mini very much. I'll post to show off sometime this weekend, and on Monday it'll be time for the next lunch sessions thread!

      Project: Captain Redbeard's Pirate Dwarves
       
      About this project
      Avast me hearties! Splice the mainbrace and beat to quarters, that galleon is bilged on her anchor and ripe for the picking! Bring us alongside Gibbs. Boomer, get ready on the gun! Pete my boy, are you loaded? Hefty, Sharktooth, Deadeye, follow me! Gyaaarh! 

        This project is to fund production of a pirate dwarf crew, a set of unique miniatures forming a warband of adventuring buccaneers for skirmish gaming or a unit of mercenary fighters in a larger dwarf army. 
      They are 28mm metal miniatures, sculpted by Mark Evans, who produced all the dwarf sculpts in our previous kickstarter. 

        This time we have decided to offer only one pledge level, with all stretch goals being free additions to the set. If you want multiple sets just increase your pledge amount accordingly. 
      Pledge price includes FREE SHIPPING in the UK and discounted shipping of just £2 for anywhere else worldwide.
       If successfully funded each backer will receive one each of Captain Redbeard's crew plus any applicable stretch goals- 
      1. Cap'n Redbeard   2. Bo'sun Gibbs   3. Deadeye Dan  
      4. Hefty Hawkins      5. Slick Willie         6. Sharktooth Jack
      7. Pigwash    8. Little Pete      9. Boomer Svensson and Swivel Gun
       The Captain himself. As gnarly a swashbucking, treasure-hungry dwarf as you could ever hope to meet. He'll fight anyone and anything if there's a promise of doubloons which makes his crew a useful mercenary force to bolster any dwarf army (just don't pay him in advance).
       The captain's trusted Bo'sun, often found leading boarding parties or manning the ship when the captain takes a raiding party ashore.
       His aim is as good with his axe as with his pistol, as many an enemy has found out
       Avast behind! The crew will often mutter about hefty, but not within earshot of him. If you have a door to kick down, a bear to wrestle or a sandwich to eat, he's your man.
       The general opinion among the crew is the Willie fancies himself, with his goatee, ponytail and feather in his hat, he cares a bit too much about his appearance.
       Sharktooth is just a thorough git, a complete thug with a pair of wicked short knives that earned him his nickname. 
       Rumour has it that Pigwash was once captain of his own ship, nobody knows for sure and nobody likes to ask because of that big axe he carries around.
       The smallest of the crew, some say he's overcompensating but with his blunderbuss he can clear a deck or blow a dwarf sized hole in a city gate.
       He's got you covered, the swivel gun is small enough that the crew will often take it ashore for some extra firepower.

      Incredible 54 mm scale sculpts cast in amazingly detailed resin for painters and collectors
      MARCH,15 TH 2017 on Kickstarter
    • By Limey72
      This was my first shot at a 54mm miniature and I chose finari, I am very happy indeed with how she came out and especially like the gold NMM which was a mix of scale 75 and reaper paints with a little Vallejo game air white.  Thanks to everyone on the WIP thread for input and support and I welcome any feedback that could improve her.  Hope you like her as much as I do.

      Having a go at bigger figures again, don't they take a long time to get finished?
       
      So this is a little vignette in 54mm scale called "The Trophy". I probably tried to squeeze everything onto too small a base, but overall I'm pleased with the actual figures.

      About
      Judgement has gone from strength to strength since our successful Kickstarter campaignthat launched the game in 2017. We funded 14 heroes and 1 monster, enabling us to produce a fantastic range of miniatures to get the game out there. It also provided us with a platform from which to build incredible communities of Judgement players around the world.
      Judgement is already awesome to play, however similar to the MOBAs from which Judgement draws inspiration, more heroes means even more awesomeness! Therefore, almost immediately after shipping our kickstarter, the design team got busy designing the wave 2 heroes that will ensure the game has the depth to reach its potential.
      We re-designed a number of heroes that were not unlocked from wave 1 and added a few more, resulting in 12 amazing heroes and 3 monsters, that will well and truly put Judgement on the world stage. The Judgement team have a proven track record of manufacturing high quality models that are a pleasure to paint and game with. Below is a selection of models we have produced to date.
      Sculpt by Tom Lishman; Painted by Gavin Clarke Sculpt by James W. Cain; Painted by Trent Denison Sculpt by Tom Lishman; Painted by Gavin Clarke With a proven track record of producing amazing quality 54mm scale resin miniatures, and the Judgement team's active involvement in our growing community, we are sure that wave 2 will be a smashing success and afford us the breathing space to take the game to the next level. So why not join us on what is sure to be an amazing ride?
      The following 12 heroes are available at all pledge levels. Not all yet have sculpts, however our track record proves that Judgement sculpts end up very close to their illustrations.
