The Ivar Dwarf Priest hammer appears incomplete as if it didn't get enough plastic in the mold. Perhaps this is a short shot. See pic of my mini's hammer compared to a completed example. Q: Is this common for Reaper Bones minis? Do people usually seek a replacement or use green stuff to sculpt up the missing portion? The Anirion Elf Wizard has a strange curtain effect between the staff and the robe. Unsure if this mini was sculpted like this or if this is also a mold-making error. See pic of situation. Q: How would you approach this strange nether land of material between the staff and the robe? Carve out what should be a gap? Paint a vertical black 'gap'? Other? Thank you for helping a new Reaper painter. Edit: Q: Should we still follow the 150k image size limit per rules, or do y'all usually post a little better resolution?
So I've got Christmas Eve off, so stayed up a bit later than normally to finish up this guy's base. This is Ivar the Barbarian Adventurer, another Chris Jackson figure that was sculpted I think after Ral Partha became Iron Wind Metals. So for me this figure is significant mostly because it's the thirtieth figure I've painted this year, which means I've been able to average slightly more than a figure every other week. This will probably be the last one I finish this year. I may get something started over the next few days, but I'm pretty sure my next figure will belong to 2015. I'm giving a front and back view of this one because he's got a shield to show off, plus he's just got the craziest shorts that an adventurer could hope for. Anyhoos, enjoy! I'm not even actually that disappointed in my metals this time, so who knows I'm either making some kind of progress or just becoming apathetic. Merry Christmas everybody! Mark
