I'm participating in the Resolutionary Painting Challenge this year to keep me motivated. One of May's challenges was to paint a musician. I am a month late to this because the base on this guy took me a lot longer than expected. I decided because he was so small I could do something interesting with the base, and decided to go with a swampy/moors/scottish highlands type of look. Just some cut out cork (I'm sure that part's obvious), some vallejo still water, army painter swamp tufts, woodland scenics underbrush, and a little miliput to turn his base into a rock he's perched on. I never seem to mix the miliput quite right so was waiting literally weeks for that to fully dry and harden. I have a friend that I traded some miniatures with and therefore ended up with two of this fellow. They are both pretty similar, but there are some color differences between them. I also decided to be ambitious and try my hand at plaid. I thought for sure I'd have to give up and make them solid colors, so overall I'm pleased I was able to get something that looks remotely plaid-like on them, though I'm sure there's a lot of room for improvement. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy!
Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not, but I'm wondering where I'd be able to find miniatures of pipe and drum band members (bagpipers, snare drummers, tenor drummers, bass drummer) So far in my "mini career" I've only ever concentrated on fantasy minis, and searching through the companies I know about, I'm able to find the odd miniature with a bagpipe, but nothing really suitable (usually Dwarfs). Looking for a set that are all dressed similar, preferably something like this: ETA: Not quite going for the full mass band like these below - but I'd like to be able to do up a small parade. This is from the New Brunswick Highland Games last summer (2013).
