     That's freakin' awesome...

     

     

     (Totally gonna be stealing the idea for the vines, btw, lol.)

     

    Be my guest. I came up with that after someone posted a gorgeous example of the Mandupar Pass temple and I stole most of those ideas.

     

    I'll suggest thinning the glue with water and dipping the thread in it completely. Apply with tweezers, then sprinkle the leaves. Works like a charm.

    She looks stunning!

     

    *** Does she likes Wolves?? Asking for a friend.😎.****

    Being a demon, I imagine she could be convinced 😉. Actually, on reflection, that could make a really fun adventure seed.

    Very nicely done, beautiful skin tones and one of my favorites out of the Dungeon Dwellers box.

    That box was one of my must haves from the kickstarter. I run a lot of games with that older aesthetic.

    Fancy. I like him. The sculpt is very nice and you did a good Job in him.

    Do you use hexbases on all of your Minis? I thought D&D works with square grids.

    That has to do with coming of age in 2nd ed (where I recall a rule specifying that you could be surrounded by up to 6 medium opponents) and certain strategy games like Romance of the Three Kingdoms 2 that worked on a hex. It eliminates corners, that sort of thing. Further, once you get locked in to a thing the tendency is to push it as far as you can ;)

    Very fine freehands on the Lady. Indeed she looks like a Disney Princess.

    I am curious absolut the Bases. You put them on wooden hex-bases? Doesn't look like a lasercut. And what did you use for the snow?

    The base is a laser cut piece from Litko. I use them because I like six sided facing and have for decades.

     

    The snow itself is army painter snow base and white glue. I used a blister pack (possibly the one she came in) to mix up a slurry of glue, water, and white powder. Brush on with a retired brush. Let cure for just bit, then dust her with more snow flakes, for final texturing.

     

    Apparently, baking soda would work just as well.

    Well done!  The snowflakes are very impressive,  Love the white hair and her face. 

    Thanks! The freehand took some time.

     

    I've been trying to figure out a good method for white hair for just about forever, too, so I'm glad that worked. I still need a recipe for a cool white. I've got a warm one and a medium one.

    Very nice! There is definitely an improvement.  I feel like there is more confidence in the latter mini.

    What I would do is to try to glaze more the glow effect from the vial.  So a thinner paint, a little more time, brush a few more layers.  I've been wanting to try this glow effect for some time now, just don't have the right mini at the moment.  Waiting for my bones 5 to arrive - should be any time now! 🙂

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I need to take more time, like you're saying. More layers, more time.

    This piece gave me a good chance to work on alternate recipes for white, grime, more NMM practice (I'm still quite green at it). I still need to work on texturing fabric (that's one of the things I was trying with Sister Hazel).

    Great idea!  Now, who’s your proxy for Alfred E. Newman?

    Actually, the idea kind of suggested itself. I wanted to practice light effects and figured I should start dark since that would give me a lot of room to move. So, I painted her mostly in blacks. Once I saw how that came out I really didn't have a lot of choice in the matter. The other HAD to be in white. My only fear was that he would read like a Klansman or something.

    Of course, once I'd painted her, I saw someone had already done both as a Spy vs Spy theme. Ah well. If you have to steal an idea you should at least steal a good one.
