Paradoxical Mouse

Mr. Dodgeson (54 mm)

Recommended Posts

So, I have just finished with the prep for Mr. Dodgeson from the Infamy Collectables KS. I loved the vibe from him. He's my first 54mm model...so please, make comments! I'd love constructive criticism, as always.

He's also my first resin piece, and I haven't primed him yet because I don't know whether or not I should. Just finished the base, so I'm going to let that harden and dry before I get started with the painting.

Resin:

 

Make sure to wash it in lukewarm water and a detergent ( dish soap) to get rid of all the release agent that might be on it.

 

I always prime, mostly white.

 

Also, I don't know if the kid is still separate, but if you can still remove it, it will be easier to paint.

They were washed after my trimming. The kids came attached. Only things not pre attached were the hands with weapons, but I needed to attach them beforehand to avoid losing them

Best way is paint from the inside to the outside with this kind of things.

Ooooh, nice looking mini.  For the base, is that a Happy Seppuku stamp, a GSW roller, or something else? ^_^

Happy Seppuku - flagstone. My personal favorite. It scales really well, obviously.

Started process with priming. Pulled him off the base to make certain areas slightly easier to reach. Using black primer for two reasons:

1. Hard to reach areas will be dark and less noticeable...would probably be in strong shadow anyway.

2. Black tends to be good for base coating a figure I want a darker feel overall to.

      I finally managed to gather up the courage to assemble and paint one of the Infamy "Welcome to the Big Smoke" kick starter minis.  These are small highly detailed resin sculpts that have a lot of fiddly intricate parts and detail.  
       
      Please fell free to comment.
       
      now for what you all want the pictures!
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      My photography skills are limited so apologies for the occasional out of focus pic.  This was after a mat spray but it looks like he needs another.   I have not based him yet as I am trying to come up with a nice one...  any suggestions will be taken into consideration.

      After doing Sir Crossinguard I jumped back into the deep end and took on another of those extremely detailed Infamy The Big Smoke kickstarter sculpts.   This time I present

      OK folks, I need some help...
       
      As most of you know, I am going to enter this guy in the Infamy painting contest, and I would like to make the best showing I can, so here are a bunch of pics, please choose the ones you think show him off the best!
      (I can send 8 pics total....)
       
      So please choose your favorite 8 pics and help me decide!
       
      Thanks!

      I am taking many pictures to try and find flaws, as well as to solicit opinions as to the best way / angle / composition because Infamy miniatures is holding a painting contest for this figure, and I can only send them 6 pics.
      (PS if you have this mini, just entering the contest will net you a store voucher of 10 GBP! Entries by 30 June)
       
      I will likely post more pics when I get a better idea of what to do....
       
      Thanks for looking, and critiquing!
       
      Special Thanks to those that followed along in the WiP, as well as the Hangouts for all the encouragement and suggestions!

      I have just completed my second mini from Infamy's "the Big Smoke" kickstarter and I must say this one was a bit of a challenge for me.  I am not used to handling the resin miniatures and I kept breaking off little pieces as I was handling the big guy!  There are a lot of small fragile pieces on this one!
       
      I based him on a post industrial ruin as per the "Big Smoke" setting for the game from Infamy.   
       
      Enjoy and feel free to comment or through things
