Bleep bleep... holding this bleeping quiver is a pain in the patoot. I am painting it fully before gluing so I don't mess up the hair or the cloak. Green trim as usual planned. ^_^

 

 

You could put a pin in the back of it where it will connect to the mini.  It won't show once the quiver is attached.  I have a few premade stands I use for this sort of thing fairly often and they work like a charm  Use a drop of cyanoacrylate glue and you can easily twist the item off the pin without damaging it.

Problem is that it already has a nub there - I didn't remove it to insert a pin first.

Drill the hole beside the nub in a spot that won't show?  I'm always reluctant to drill into a work in progress because I'm worried where those razor sharp pieces of scrap metal will end up and what damage they will do to areas I have already painted.

Definitely not doing it now. And the nub aims the piece into the divet in her cloak. The plastic is working; it is just annoying as all heck. Next time with something like this maybe I'll put a pin in first. It would take trimming off the nub, drilling, then gluing a pin to hold. Could just cut the pin to the nub later. Oh well. I think I'll be able to glue it by using sticky tack on the front to put it temporarily on a little wand to aim it.

I had the angle of highlights a but off when I attached the quiver so I had to touch that up. The leather texture isn't quite what I had before, but close - crosshatched.

I really think that at this point, the base shouldn't give you too much trouble.  It's looking great!  ^_^ 

 

I can control paint pretty well, but for some reason, bases make me worry. I've been working on doing better lately, but that's consisted of a few glued tufts. Going to be making my own tufts for this one.

      Hopefully the first of many, this was an experiment in color - in this case, green. And while his wide stance was a problem at first, I made it work. Karahl Farstep:
       

       
      Hood and cloak are both a mix of Brilliant Green and Linen White, 3:1 for the darker areas and 1:2 everywhere else. The cloak is shadowed with purple (thanks, @Cyradis!), and I think it came out pretty nicely in front. Had to redo the back due to becoming shadow happy.
       
      For the light greens I was hoping to achieve something close to mint green, but it came out a lot more washed out and boring than hoped. So I freehanded borders around those parts with some Palomino Gold. Not daring enough to do anything fancier than that yet, but I think it makes a positive difference.
       
      Comments and critiques welcome, I’d like to know what works or doesn’t, and what to try and do better next time.

      In my current method, I don't even have to decide which figure to paint next.  
      Once I finished this hero, and the Mystic Theurge I could take the net six group shots. 
      - as  I recreate the bones 2  kickstarter poster.  
      yet I still feel the need to decorate that big stretch of cape... 
      went through about  Halloween themed patterns to go with the orange /black armor.  the armor actually turned out redder than intended.

      This cloak was crying out for freehand.  
      But I had had some others recently that just failed.  Time to put the big boy pants on again. 
      the fact that I was sitting next to clever crow at paint club may have been a factor.

      Hi!  You might remember me from such threads as Bones - will they blend? & Painting with numbers the Laoke Way.  I've been away from the paintbrush for a bit, as it's summer here in The Land Of The Future, but recently one of my wife's best friends spawned a delightful little halfling which the doting parental units decided to name Peregrine.

      I know.  Cute as a button!  Anyways, as a gift to the little sprogling, she decided to paint up a figure for him - and, while she was at it, she painted up one for our collection at the same time!

      This is the one she painted up for us.  I love the freehand on this one!  The face is a bit naff from this angle and with the lighting being as basic as it is, but it's much better in person.

      And here we have Peregrine in all his diminutive glory!  She's really happy with the way the face came out on him, and I have to agree - the cloak is also pretty amazeballs!

      A while ago @Jasper_the_2nd sent me some minis for my Lost World Project.
      I painted the Clan Wars Naga Champion to fit in my world.
      This one is a captured Asian Pirate "improved" by the Transmuthor and turned into a Serpent Warrior.
