AutumnHare posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI finally finished all the Pathfinder Iconics. (Until Bones 4 arrives.)

Alright! Here he is! It's mini #2 for this year... Yup, #2! If I get any faster, I'll blow my chance at last place in the number of minis completed for the year! This piece was assembled for a friend of mine who doesn't have a game piece for when we play Munchkin or whatever. He does now, and I think he came out pretty well for a table top piece. I'm pretty satisfied, although I apparently had some issues with outgassing. I'm guessing the thin super glue that was used to mount the debris on the bottom wasn't quite dry when I put him in the display case. As a result, I had a slight cloudy area where he was sitting, and the coin has taken on a frosty looking patina. I suppose it works, but from now on, everyone's staying OUTSIDE of the display case overnight, just in case. Okay! Here's what I tried to work on with this piece: 1. Freehand - I attempted a plaidish pattern on his bedroll. It gave me fits. I do believe that I will have fits with freehand the rest of the year as it's one of the main things I plan on working on. I also attempted a bit on his lower tabard (?), but I ended shading it down to make it look worn as I couldn't quite get it right. At any rate, I'm working towards getting better in this area. 2. The Coin Base - I'm trying to expand my basing experience. I really enjoy basing and got this idea from Massive Voodoo and decided to try it. Unfortunately the coin got the weird patina, which I think works, but I would've preferred to have it "prettier." Also, coins are hard to drill through.... at least this one was! Willen was kind enough to do some research on the origin of the coin, which can be read in the WIP of this piece. 3. The Trap - Will Harsk notice the spikes before it's too late? Will he make his saving throw? Who knows! At any rate, the trap was a happy accident. The bricks I used were strangely shaped bricks from Secret Weapon that I've had for a while. They looked great around the coin as they're curved, but don't work well at all for making a solid form radiating out from the coin. I played with different configurations, until I found a pattern I liked with squarish spaces between them. It looked like a perfect pressure plate booby trap opportunity, so I drilled (used an awl really) holes in the spaces and stuck toothpick points through them. Instant spike trap! The rest of the thing is made up of a wooden checker, matte board, a cork to glue the board to, and milliput to make up the earthen base. Of course there's flock (which is still shedding, according to the pics) and Army Painter plants for fun! The underside of the platform is potting soil or whatever it was the kids brought home in those plant projects that never seem to sprout... Anyhoo, here's Harsk, in all his rangering glory: He was fun to paint, and I hop Toph enjoys him! Please leave C&C and let me know what you think. I may drag him along to ReaperCon if Toph will let me. Now I can finally move on to the Spring Exchange and a new diorama for ReaperCon. Hope to see y'all there! -K P.S.: NO, I did not purposefully ruin the plant projects. They'd been sitting around for a year or so before I even used some of the soil. LOL!
Okay! So I have a WIP up for the Gnomish Bee Rider figure, but I still haven't taken the pics for that one. I'm probably going to take my time on the project.... anyway.... What we have here is a Dwarf I'm painting up for a friend as a game piece to use in whatever it is we're all playing at the time. For this, I've chosen Harsk, Iconic Male Dwarf Ranger! Here is Shiny Harsk: Here is Primed Harsk with a distinct mold line I didn't pick up on until AFTER I painted his hair... Here's where he arrived after the first round of painting: And finally, here's where he got tonight until I got the munchies and am now waiting for chicken wings... He is destined for a checker base. It's been a while since I've done a basic gaming piece, so it's nice to get back to it. I probably spend way too much time focusing on detail, but I guess it's what I like to do, so that makes it okay. It does not, however, lend itself to churning out the massive numbers of painted minis that many of you awesome people do! That may not be a bad thing as my display cabinet is starting to get... stuffy... Hopefully I'll finish Harsk up soon then get on with the Spring Exchange, the contest, and prep for REAPERCON!!! Thanks for reading! -K
