    Ragnaros Evil Warrior

    It's all finished. The grass came in, and I finally finished the sword to my liking. For more pics click here. Thanks for looking, HMP

    Ragnaros, Evil Warrior

    Well, I got the arms on, and the head. The sword is just blocked-ish (it will be done in metallics at the end), and I tried my first freehand on the shield. So far I like where it's headed. I describe in more (albeit limited) detail how I did the shield on my blog (this project is supposed to be finished as a gift for tomorrow, so I'm more focused in painting than blogging). Just need to smooth out the eyes... and next time I would fill in the pits in the shield, as i find them distracting. HMP

    The Year of The Goblin...maybe

    This entire thread is awesome! Such great use of color, coupled with your super unique twist on things makes it a true joy to scroll through. Keep doing what you're doing. HMP

    Screaming Bell has been based over the bits we were discussing (I tried brighter gold/yellow), but this drew too much attention on the legs, so a very coppery gold will be the target. In the shoulder this should be bright enough, yet still tie in with the shins. HMP

    Not an original color for Ragnaros, but I like the direction things are headed. The bulk of the plate is done, and other parts are just blocked or primed. The base is also just at stage 1, dirt grime, bones etc to come. Critiques are welcome at any stage. I think the shoulder edges will be gold (brass, copper and other options are still on the table at this time). I'm going to go with glowing green for the eyes, and a gold crown (flames an option), but we'll see... Hack

    Second for the Tamiya clear red. Add a drop of black, to desired amount. It gets tacky as it dries and you can make a nice mess with it. H

    Help Identify This Mini

    Anyone know what this is called, who made it or the sculptor? The base is dated 1985 or 1986. I think it says RA but the A is hard to make out and what follows is totally obscured (RAFM)? The name looks like R. M()rcH. Thanks, Hack

    Yes. You just crunch up Al foil a few times then smooth it out a bit and fold up the edges to make a little container. Pour in the plaster and let it set! I carved the brick lines into a "sheet" after it had set. To do this I actually used a very small drill bit as a file (normally used for pinning). There are some good tutorials on youtube about using foil to make "rock", the railroad guys have LOTS of terrain tricks. The foil doesn't have the strength to hold much weight, so larger forms tend to flatten out, but for our scale things are pretty OK... Below is how mine looked before I broke it up. https://hackminipainter.blogspot.com/2018/06/more-plaster-basing.html Good luck, H
