  1. And here we are - after 48 hours of building time and another 20 or so hours of drying, our beach diorama is finally done. Check here for the WIP Thread ->Let's Make a Present! Combat divers on the beach<-
  2. When my first present - please check here ->Let's present a ... present! Owl Mage<- was received pretty well by our female colleage, my boss asked me to do more. This time the task was to make a present for another colleague who left us. As he was in the military and also is a passionate diver, I thought of something military. What would be a better fit than German combat divers (Kampfschwimmer)? Luckily I found a bunch of German frogmen miniatures and ordered them immediately. When I told my boss what I had in mind, she asked me to include the following elements: 1st: Frogmen 2nd: An owl (of course) 3rd: an exit 4th: a sign that links the colleague to our work. Everything else was free for me to develop. As Frogmen often use beaches to infiltrate or exfiltrate an area, the overall idea was to create a beach setting. So I went down to the beach, spent some hours there swimming, enjoying the sun and making sketches, until I finally had an idea what I wanted the diorama to be like. The owl should be sitting on a sign that warned of mines - but instead of a mines warning there should be an inside joke written on the board we often did at work. The exit should be between two dunes and be marked by another sign. And the Kampfschwimmer unit should be astonished by what they witnessed. So I started painting the combat divers. After that I assembled the owl, used plastic styrene to cut out two signs, assembled them an started painting. Still I had one problem - the showcase I ordered ... *chuckles* didn't show up. That sounds funny at the moment but should be a problem later on. And as I was doing a second diorama at the same time, the pressure increased ... *Insert creepy music here*
  3. Here are some guys I painted up, unfortunately too late, for the PF game I was running the end of last year. I kind of decided, after painting their feathers with Nightmare Black (from the Halloween ghoulie bags), that their clan would be the Blue Crows. Seemed fitting. These were my first PF goblins to paint. They were quite fun. All by Ben Siens. I really love the goblin commando--just a great sculpt. I kind of love goblin dogs, too. Not exactly a goblin dog, but still. I really tried to make him gross With the Bones guys, these were my first Bones painted using Liners to "prime" the figures. I loved the results on that front and will be sticking with it. I liked what it did for the paint going on after it both in terms of how it looked and how it felt--seemed to really knock out the tacky feel. I could be totally wrong, but it really seems to me like the brown and gray liners work better, or at least stick to the Bones better. But anyway. Thanks for looking!
