    75mm Tara from Bombshell

    curious - what was the green skin undertone for? (hadn't seen the technique/approach prior)

    Color Choice - Hobbit Door

    I would go for something that pops in a classy way. mahogony or a polished crimson would work. Likewise bright or royal blues would also work. Hobbits prided themselves on having tidy homes, so their doors should probably be more reminiscent of an old-times model home. Another option is white with some metal trim, but that'd be tricky to pull off and make it look right.

    Advice on Bones Dryad 77265 (linked for nudity)

    you may want to try wet-blending the wood color to her "skin" color, like she's emerging from the tree? Not sure if that's the angle you're aming for, tho

    poorly made miniature assembly

    this is a figurine of the support character J4X in Imperial Assault. I left the crap on my desk to provide a sense of how tiny this thing is. and this is how the robot was advertised on the website Any rate, I'll list off and explain all the details. had I known that the manufacturer sold it like this I probably wouldn't have bought it. 8\ this isn't all the fiddly bits, there's more just for this model (lots of other models in the bag with similar design issues, but this one's the worse The gun-arms that go on the side of the main body don't really fit. The inside of it is flat (and an ugly flat that you'd find on a connection side, so there's no question there) ... but it's supposed to connect into that circular divot like a ball-socket joint would go. 8\ i left that top cannon in view. while the piece actually would fit flush where it's supposed to, it's barely a mm tall. With this material i wouldn't want to try pinning it. The head-base and the neck-base are the ones I mentioned in the original post. I tried to angle it so you could see the recess via shadows, but it's a huge divot where the two pieces are supposed to glue-fit together. So yeah. kind of a mess. 8\ anyhoo, there ya go. Please provide advice.
  5. I'm not going to list names so as not to dump on the company (it's not a big studio like Reaper or GW) ... but I got a miniature to assemble and they kinda really botched the process. It's a cheap resin, and the assembly points where it SHOULD fit flush isn't. every one of those points has a divot. So it's basically like trying to glue 2 jar lids together when the jars aren't the same size. My question is - how should I fix this? Do I employ green stuff? I don't really want to pin it because some of these fiddly bits aren't even 2 mm wide (lots of little arms without tabs/slots) Advice welcome

    77386 Andriessa, Female Wizard

    you may want to put a slight color to the sheer fabric (probably blue to tie with her back-sash). at tabletop distance the white might be mistaken as untanned skin. anyhoo, that aside nice colors with the rest of the mini. ^^

    Imperial Assault Storm troopers

    starting off with stormtroopers. relatively new to this whole painting thing. I tried gloss-white paint on the troopers with black details and apothecary-white-contrast for shading. shine and finish turned out good, but I kinda think the gloss-paint was too thick and lost some of the details. live-and-learn. At least I'm doing this in deployment groups, that way I can have each set use improved techniques without it looking too jank.

    Noggin the Nog - boardgame pieces

    The cartoony look is completely in keeping with the sculpt styles, it's actually one of things I like about it the most. like little muppets (in a good way)

    Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Mission 9

    yeah, I think Jokers' is one of the best pose/sculpts in that entire game. solid stuff on all these. ^^ Spoiler was one of the bat girls (kinda forgetting which atm), who shifted gears and turned into her own vigilante. Underused, but interesting character.
