Adding to my collection of farm figures, these halflings are pretty decent size. Must be the country living. Had fun muddying them up a little. Probably could have gone further with that. The male had what looks like a gouge on the face. Not sure if I just didn't clean up the mold lines enough or somehow cut him during scraping and prep? Didn't actually notice it until I did the eyes and started working on skin. Could have played it up as a scar but didn't want to mess with it right now. Maybe I'll pick it up again after the figure has seen some table action and then give him a battle scar. Farmer 1 Front And back farmer 2 front And back together! front and back ...and defending their livestock from raiders You get a sense of their relative size here - the chickens, piglet, and lamb are on small (20 mm) bases. Thanks for looking! Oh, and here's the WIP thread:
For my first ever WIP I thought I'd go for something simple. Reaper's animal companion pack of goat, pig, and cow. Got these half price at my FLGS a little while back. They must have sat in their package a long while before I rescued them. The cow's tail seems especially fragile and the goat' integrated base was quite warped. i decided to base the cow on a large 2" base but the pig and goat would not fit nicely on a 1" base so I used two bones integrated bases that I had removed the figures from a while ago. Here they are primed and glued to their bases: Next I had to fill the gaps in their bases a bit so I mixed some tacky glue, brown craft paint, and a dash from my jar of leftover mixed sand and flock. This got spread around to simulate mud/dirt. It was a thinner mixture than I've used before so I'm worried it won't stay as it dries. I still managed to put a base coat of Elf Flesh on the pig as well as a mix of the same elf flesh with my brown craft paint to get the cow started. Here is where they stand so far tonight. (Sorry for the poor picture but I was not about to move these while so wet to my photo area!) Part of the point of this WIP is to showcase my mistakes and corrections so that others can learn from them, but please feel free to give critiques and suggestions as well, for I have much to learn. Now to search out some inspiration pictures (was I supposed to do that first?)
