Hi all, I am again guilty as charged to neglect painting my miniatures. Instead I go on converting them...that said, I intend to paint her directly after she is finished to break the pattern. This time I decided to give Bones Mini 77175 a total make over. I found the sculpt very busy and the nose was unfortunately miscast. Anyhow, I am always quick with the blade and decapitated her, took away the sword on her back and got the greenstuff out. I intend to add a skeleton coming forth from the soil beneath her outstretched hand, which required me to rebase her. I started with the following: Head swap with one of Statuesque's Pulp Heads, a feather and a bone on her belt and a focus on her back. I also cut away a bit of her upper body to make space for my sculpting efforts and to make sure that she would have a neck. And some detail shots: As you can see the idea is to have a little mandrake man attached to the focus. Sculpting the face with big nose and squinty eyes was difficult, but I hope with paint on it will be clear that it is a mandrake. On the other side we have a skeletal hand attached to her focus and a small rodent skull. Her hood ends in a sleigh bell, that is why there is a sphere with a cross shaped indentation. Potentially needs some smoothing. Observations: The pictures are very good to show small flaws in the greenstuff. These will be covered with some fresh putty and smoothed out. Should I mix more yellow in to achieve a mix that can be better smoothed out? I read up about this topic and I also own a bottle of Tamiya grey surface primer and filler. Did you ever coat greenstuff wit that stuff and sanded it afterwards for a smooth finish? It is a brush-on lacquer based coating. Will this attack greenstuff? The coat itself looks a bit uneven in places. While this might fit a tattered cloak of a necromancer I might need to even it out. Opinions on this? Where the fabric is attached to her cuffs a metal ring or something similar should be added. Right now I don't think it is apparent how it is fastened. Opinions? Does her coat/dress make sense? I know that draped dresses where a thing in medieval times, but here the idea is that the arms of the coat drape down and are attached via rings to the cuff. The original model has only one draping piece on each side, but here we have two. Are there any real world examples for this? I know it is fantasy, but it should make sense. Should I add some strains of hair that come forth from her hood? Thank you in advance lads and lasses!
A couple of multibases for Kings of War (one horde and one troop), including a more practical use for big K (he's just too big for wargaming with). Lots of shots. I had originally only intended to paint up the horde, but found I was running out of room on the base for the original number of minis I wanted to paint, so I added a few more and made the troop to go with it. Thanks for looking!
This is my first Reaper Mini that I have painted to post on the forums. I have recently found the forums here, and am very interested in doing the paint exchanges, but I did want to throw something up so the organizers and other members knew that I can throw some paint on a mini and not have it look like total jank. I am interested to hear what everyone thinks. This was also my first Bones mini that I have done, and did as suggested and not primed it. First coat was a bit tricky but after that everything went pretty typical.
