    Wiz kids orc warrior

    I have a few wiz kids figures waiting in the wings, I'm interested to see your finished piece. I really should work on them, I have a couple bugbears that need to be done and could be useful in monday's game.

    Southern Belle miniatures

    Thought I'd give a quick in progress update. I ordered a Cordelia from a site and haven't received it yet...sigh....but I did get the civil war minis, and they are actually very pretty. Here is a very rough in progress shot. Note that I am using them in DnD, so the colors are not historically accurate. I also thought the one holding a parasol looked like a wand, so snipped it down and it looks like what I want. they are are very nice for the price! I have a ton of civil war soldiers now too, lol.

    That Cordelia one is really good! I could probably manage to green stuff the gun on the dress into a basic purse or something....I'm going to look for it now! Edit: Lame...only one Cordelia figure on ebay and it's already painted. I think I'm going to need to get it unpainted because then I can modify it easily, it would be too hard to try and break off the glued rifle from the dress in a glued model. Gah! Well if anyone has an unopened one they want to sell me, let me know!

    Southern Belle miniatures

    Those are exactly right....but too small! I use Reaper (much closer to the 25mm) and Dark Sword (true 28mm.) I think I will buy them anyway and enjoy painting them up, more as a good representation of what I'm looking for! Well I ordered the Old Glory set...maybe someday we will get bigger scales of them to paint!

    Southern Belle miniatures

    I have the cinderella figure and it's alright....nothing is quite like what I'm looking for. I would love to see those figures, we should lobby together for sculpts of that type. I did buy the fairy figure with a fairly large dress and just didn't install her wings, that turned out pretty nice although it's the wrong style. It's hard fitting a figure to a specific character.
  7. WHY is it so hard to find good civil war era southern belle style figures? I have been looking forever for something like this: That big hoop skirt style dress. There has been only ONE actual figure that I've found that even closely resembles this style, and I have two of them: Which works...but...it's boring having the same figure with different paint styles. Has anyone seen anything like these available anywhere?

    02793: Arianna, Fairy Princess

    What is the name of this sculpt? I'd love to get one myself. Just need to know the name Nevermind I'm a moron. Her name is the title. Duh. She's turning out very nice. I love the rainbow effect.

    Domur, High Mage - Competition Mini

    That blue flame looks really cool. I like the yellow and blue contrast.

    01601 Domur High Mage

    That is turning out very nice. I love the flame effect you did and the object source lighting (Which I never bothered with) is turning out really good on your model!

    Domur, High Mage - Competition Mini

    This was the picture I used as a reference for fire. It helped a lot: Bright white at the bottom, yellow above that, orange above that, then red at the very tip top of the flame. I know you were limited in colors but this might give a good example of how to work with it. Here is my Domur that I finished recently using the above fire reference: I painted him to look like a Final Fantasy XI Black mage. I wasn't too excited about this figure, but really liked how he turned out. I am a painting noob too.

    Raistlin Majere (aka Anirion)

    Looks great! Anirion is one of my favorite figures, I used him in my pathfinder game. We did similar colors too, mine just had a gold fringe. I like darker complexion you added to him too.

    Aku-chan paints a big pile of Kingdom Death

    I love this thread. Kingdom Death was something I was interested in, but I think I would have difficulty convincing my friends to play it. I will live vicariously through your pictures!
