Amazing! I don't know what colors you used for the lady's dress, but it kind of looks like leather or skin, especially the back of the skirt. Just love that dress! I never would've thought about painting it like that. Beautiful. The horned guy is also excellent. Love the way you painted his bow! 

 

Also a fan of the way you match up colors on the bases with similar colors from the figures. Fairy type creatures should look like part of their environment. Nicely done.

haha now you say it, I would love to do something with summer & winter... but I just don't know (yet, at least) with which miniatures. These two are demigods on Warhammer setting, and their size is bigger than that of a regular elf: I think they must be equivalent to a 54mm scale figure. There is not other elven characters that scale that I know...

Thank you! For the Lady's dress I used "Dryad Bark" as a base, then lighten it with "Karak stone", and finally highlighted with "Karak Stone". All washed a couple times with "Agrax Earthshade". All of them are Citadel. Dryad Bark is a deep kinda greyish brown, and Karak Stone... I don't know how to describe it xd Believe me, I wasn't sure about painting it that way till it was almost done. I think one of my strong suits is that I have - Or I think I have -  a good eye for color, and combining color... and that usually saves it for what I lack on technique. 

And thank you for what you say about the bases ^^ Basing is not my strong suit, and I can rarely work on improve it just because I don't have space for escenic bases...

      Well..let keep it busy, so starting a new minis / scenery with this cute frog and it bumblebee :)
      Just to change from the big muscle fighter guys or the green guy haha ( well frog skin may tend to be greenish though...)
       
      So very first beginning..as I do usually zenithal prime on the figure..and blocked out my base shape ( this one I am going to use the water texture from Vallejo, thus the hole made in the base )

      Here's a big batch of miniatures, no common theme, that I finished recently.



      The "Eyedra" assembled as the more generic Hydra option, from "Dark Platypus Games".  Thanks to the Reaper Box of Goodwill for this one.




      A Ral Partha "Dwarf Thief", more suited as a Gnome to modern scale, also acquired from the Box of Goodwill.


       
       
      To celebrate their return to 5E in "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes", a Giff, 3D printed from designs from the wonderful DM Workshop.


       
      A Goblin Monk.  I believe he's originally an Orcling from Foundry/Warmonger.


       
       
      Another Goblin, perhaps an Alchemist.  A Warhammer Snotling.




      A Dire Pillbug, originally intended as a Myconid Mount, from "Ganesha Games", in their "Fightin' Fungi" range.



      Also of note is the backdrop, which are my in progress 3D printed Caverns set from "Printable Scenery"

      I've never been much of a fan of GW.  I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
      And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
      But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
      So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre.  Took a look around and caught sight of this:

       
      Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction.  Or whatever the different groups are called.
      I thought, "Those are pretty cool!  Flying stuff.  Steampunky.  I like."
       
      Then we left.  And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
      Then we met back up on Monday.  And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships.  So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
       
      So, this is what they look like when you open the box:

      Oye! Lots of bits.  Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive).  Options that presumably follow rules.  Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. 
      But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
       
      So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

      Been working on this project for some time now, and hoping to get it done for a local competition in september.
      Still a lot to do, but I'm mostly happy with what I have made so far..
      I bought a bits-box with loads of Wahammer bits, and decided to try and sculpt a bigger tyranid out those bits, as a maine character for the scene. I find the sculpting as fun as the painting..and well, the Warhammer stuff seems rather expensive.
      I know nothing of the Warhammer 40K world, so it also been fun reading and researching for stuff.
       
      This will be a scene in the Wahmmaer 40K world. Three tau XV25's and one drone (not pictured) are behind enemy lines, and attack some sort of Tyranid base..
       
      First two pictures a finished minis, A Tau XV25 (its a battle-suit with a 'tau-person' inside), and a small tyranid.
       
      Next is the big tyranid, grey stuff is from the bits box, light-brown is Fimo sculpting clay and green is green-stuff. It is mostly done, but need a bit of grinding a maybe a few more details. The tail is going to end into next picture, where the tau is in big trouble (or is he?). The tau is painted, but the tail is just sculpted and a few strokes of priming.
      The part where the tail is shot to pieces is made of small pieces of fishing line, white-glue and sculpting paste. I glued the fishing line more or less randomly in place with super-glue-gel, super glue to hold the two pieces of tail in place. Covered everything with water thinned white-glue. put on some blobs af sculpting paste and covered everything in water-thinned white glue again.
       
      Last pictures is the base, mostly just primed. The tau's are attacking from the left side of the first picture, and the small tyranid will be lurking in the cave.
       
      Feel free to suggest, critiq and comment on anything, thanks for looking.

      Here my latest work. I keep trying and trying with black: highliting black. I tried with blue for a while till I was quite happy with it, and now I’m trying with grey which is more difficult... it does show here, since it completely reads as grey skin but oh well, it’s still a job I’m happy with. 
      That’s Be’lakor, one of the finest demon figures ever made by any manufacturer. First chaos everchosen, first mortal to ascend to demonhood, blessed and cursed, the lord of the dark...
