Stonehaven Cannon Dwarf, No Mustache
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingWe know that minis are art. Painting them, and sculpting them too. But THIS particular mini is art mirroring other art; I feel like the medieval German master stonecarver Adam Kraft was the inspiration for this. The fellow could turn rock into lacework in the Gothic style, and one of his most famous pieces includes a carven self-portrait supporting the ponderous structure above. That same sense of endurance under immense weight, and that same chin-beard, are evident in this laboring dwarf. I do love the detail of the cannonball pouch. No idea how heavy a cannon of that size would be, but at minimum I would say 'hella.' The trudging posture really sells it. The jezzail came from the Futuristic Weapons Reaper sprue, 50025. Those cogwheels fit pretty nicely in a fantasy Early Modern past. Hope you enjoy!
I couldn't resist getting another Space Amazon from Hydra during their last sale. This is the Valkeeri Leader B, and she is good at her job. Those eyes say she has seen a lot of shenanigans and is not easily impressed. It was a gloomy day and I had to use flash photography, or you'd see more muscle definition shadowed; the sculpt by John Winters is excellent. Around the same time I picked up another Incredible Woman (50212) from Reaper and decided to paint her as one of these green-skinned amazons from the fungal jungles of Venus. I added a sealed-cardstock belt and a sidearm from 50025, the Futuristic Weapons set. But she is a muscular gal and prefers to settle things with furious punches rather than zap guns. Bob Ridolfi also knows how to make a well-toned lady. \. Here's a side-by-side comparison to show the size difference in these stunning statuesque sisters. And the whole green-skinned crew, now complete, for real this time, I promise!*
SPACEFUTURE: Hydra Galacteers, Part II
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingMore planetary explorers! Hydra's Jane Hunter x2 and Galacteer Trooper Advancing with Atomic Bazooka. I picked up a Reaper Futuristic Weapons pack (50025) and didn't know what to do with it for the longest time. But then the Muse slapped me in the head, saying FLAMETHROWER SPACE LADY. How wise the Muse is. Presenting "Torch" Marigold of the Galacteers. You need a seam welded or a bug-eyed monstrosity turned to ash, she is on the job! Also presenting Corporal Hernandez, heavy weapons specialist. Space is big. Sometimes it contains big problems. Sometimes those big problems require big solutions. That's the good Corporal's time to shine. With the brightness of a thousand suns. I love this sculpt so much. And here is Lieutenant Yang, xenthropologist and exodiplomat extraordinaire.This is the unmodified 'Jane Hunter' model. This spaceship is an even larger plastic egg with fins made from wooden dolphin cutouts and engines made from multiple types of fruit-paste-pouch caps. Why do I have so many of those caps? Children/nieces/nephews are the gift that keeps giving. Until next time, cadets!
