  1. I really like this mini's design. She's very slim and tall, which gives her an imposing look. I've actually got a little squad based around her that I hope to paint and put together at some point. The only drawback to the mini's sculpt is that there wasn't a lot of detail in the dress. I had to create the majority of the definition with highlights (not sure how well it shows up in pictures, though).
  2. The parson from this four-figure set showed up in my recent post on the Salem Sisters. Let's ratchet several notches up the social scale for the other three. First, some Ladies at Court: Or courtiers, or courtesans, it's not easy to draw the line in King Charles II's time. Lots of flounces and furbelows, lots of gossip. "Of course the Barsteads have wealth piled upon wealth. It is said that the family were blaggards and privateers who got rich off of Spanish gold in Queen Bess's time" "Well, *I* heard that the Barstead fortune came from a devil's bargain! The coffers will never run empty as long as the Good Folk take the firstborn to pay the tithe to Hell!" "Hm! The way the family carries on, it seems Old Scratch got the worse end of the deal, paying up for what would rightfully come his way in due time with no effort on his part." And here is Lord Barstead himself. Rouged cheeks and mad eyes, definitely drunk and dissolute. The sort of person who would horsewhip the servants and call people "cack-handed slatterns." The kind who will squander the family inheritance on cards and drink. Maybe enclose the Commons later, on a whim, or start a tobacco plantation in the New World, or just sentence a peasant to hang for poaching. "...Very old family, the Barsteads. In the War of the Roses Sir Ranulf Barstead invented the Barstead sword. Why, back in the Conqueror's day half the nobility in this part of the realm were Barsteads. Demned upstart vagabonds these days, jumped-up weavers and tradesmen get a little money and start thinking of themselves as Peers? Why, it makes a Barstead's blood boil!" "You DARE? Insolent whelp, I'll see you dead and damned at dawn! Pistols, or swords?"
  3. Picked this guy up at a paint and take somewhere. He was primed black and this is as far as I got without my glasses. Fiddled around with him some more recently. Experimented with some Contrast paints and various glazes. Calling it done.
  4. Queen Ileosa, with a base made from countertop color matching samples. I figured, it's designed to look like marble / stone, so why not? I don't know whether to continue my sheer cloth attempt, or just give up and turn it back into red though, and I don't know what color to make her vest corset thing. Her back will be painted to look like peacock feathers. Yes, that is metallic blue in her hair. Perhaps too blatant. Should I tone it down? A conversion of Hannah Blackruby from a sorceress to simply a noble lady, involving twisting her hand sideways and epoxying in the rod from Sheila Heidmarch's weapon sprue (which I wasn't going to use). I have to say, I was expecting her arm to snap off halfway through; I now have a newfound respect for JB Weld, and I'm using it a lot more now. Her color scheme is more decided, and yes her gloves and coat lining will be white leather. I'm inclined to switch to a different color for her purse though; a white bag makes her right arm hard to read. Critique, comments, suggestions?
  5. I am stuck color wise on this. For the top corsett. I'm looking for any suggestions. I was going to go off white with gold trim, but I'm not sure if it would make it dull.
  6. Fat King Robert Baratheon from Dark Sword Miniatures. I'm really pleased with how he turned out. It's actually the mini I'm most pleased with in quite a while.
