I would also use two.

It makes sense that they visit such a tomb together or guard it together.

 

And just one would make it look like a large base for a single mini.

 

 

Thanks Glitter, Al, et al;

Seems that two guards it is.

I'm putting some light gray and working on bark on the tomb.

I have to work out where I am putting those guards, but I have to admit

I do like the way this is shaping up.

Some flowers, carving, glueing, and more painting will bring this together...I hope.

ROFL.

Been doing some work on the mini's.

This is what I am planning on doing for placement.

Spears and shields have to be added, and all the etc...

I think this will work.

Here are two photos.

I just enlarged the phots that I uploaded.

There are a bit larger.

Mercy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had ALL the tools out today..AND USING THEM.!!!

I had the carving tools (forgot how sharp they are);  sculpting tools,  nippers, tweezers, clippers... and I took base

apart, re-glued, re-painted, and put it all back together again.  I am getting closer to completion.

Everything is in place with the exception of some highlighting,  foliage, bushes, touch-ups, and some direction and

attention focusing.. (fancy way of saying.. making you see what I want you to see)..

Here are a few photo's.  That was even a pain in the butt today also..ROFL.

That is one of your FINEST efforts. The Elven Warriors standing watch over their fallen hero is a BEAUTIFUL narrative creation. VERY WELL DONE!

For some reason or other the photos here seem larger & clearer than those in the Show Off.

Seems I will have to learn to submit photo's in a different fashion.

Things have changed in how photo's are submitted and displayed it seems.

Might just be me. 

I'll try to get another set tomorrow.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.

      I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be.  I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's
      that I am currently painting.  I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project.  So when it is done, I will
      post in the show off Forum.  I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.

      After ALL this Time I am going to Post a  WIP ???
      Well, I broke all my rules about painting a miniature with this one. 
      I designed the BASE FIRST (do that last Normally).
      Attached the figure to the base, its glued and pinned (becoming a nut-job really).
      So now I have to paint this puppy on its base, and I have NO CLUE as to what it is.
      Two eyes, claws, lots of mouth, furry, and VERY Little.  Might be smaller than my dwarf that I posted.
      I believe it is.
      So I'll try to post photos as I go about this.  Maybe I'll learn something, maybe not.
      Here is the start of the little Woolly creature on his base made from a piece of 1000 year old oak bark,
      taken from the area where the crotch of a limb might have been. 
      Toss a comment in if you feel like it.

      I started out this miniature without a clue as to what I was going to do with it.
      I had NO idea what it was, and so the first thing I did was create a WIP to get some guidance as I progressed
      through painting the mini.  I was absolutely clueless. 
      In a short time of working on it, the Meier touch came through and the pure humor, and skill of Tom was
      guiding my hands (if not my chuckles).  Ideas came along with encouragement of our friends on the Forum.
      So rather than keep filling an already full bucket, here is my painted  interpretation of Tom Meiers "LITTLE WOOLLY".
      Your comments, and opinions are greatly appreciated.
      You can find the WIP in the Works in Progress session.
      The base is made from a very old piece of Oak Bark.
      Jason
