Mouslings we'd like to see / We'd like to see Mouslings!

Recommended Posts

I...I didn't know there was an all-Mouslings-all-the-time thread. Excuse me a moment while I dab my eyes. I appear to have gotten some stray dust in them.

 

Oliver Twist Mousling (complete with "Please sir, I want some more" bowl and sad, sad eyes)

Mariachi Mouslings!

3 Mouslings stacked on each other wearing an long coat with faces peeking out between the buttons and pretending to be a tall person SQUEE

I have to admit that personally I want adventuring type of Mouselings as opposed to "Precious Moments" Mouselings, but its also nice if everyone gets a little bit of something they're wanting.

Heck of it is... Gene's kind of ahead of my curve. Last year, when I attended Reapercon, I was getting a little tired of the holiday themed mouselings, and thought it'd be nice if he'd go back to the original concept of "dungeon and wilderness adventurer/fantasy hero" archetypes. 

And when I tripped over Gene, and he showed me his concept art, it turned out he'd stolen a march on me; the Bones mouselings are all, near as I can tell, from the concept art. And sure enough, he was going back to the original well.

We've already got cowboy mouselings, Indiana Jones and Lara Croft mouselings, b-movie space mouselings, zombie mouselings and hunter mouselings, and even a gypsy fortuneteller mouseling. Sure, I'd love to see Doctor Who mouselings, but I also have to take into account that even if Gene makes 'em, Ron's got to clear 'em, and they have to be something reasonable saleable... and preferably lawsuit free. And archetypes are a good way to stay firmly in saleable AND legal territory.

A mad doctor mouseling with assistant? Sure. How about a Great Detective mouseling and his sidekick? Sherlock Holmes is in the public domain now. I also wouldn't mind Frankenmouseling and Count Liederkrantz, Vampire Mouseling, perhaps even with a damsel mouseling. And judging from the look of the Asian mouseling, I wouldn't say no to another samurai mouseling or two, and maybe a ninja mouseling. 

Not getting my hopes up, though. It has to be things that'll sell, and remain popular for a while. But if I look at "categories of minis," particularly the categories I have lying around my workbench -- sci-fi, fantasy, dragons, soldiers, and so on? Mouselings are the only category I have that is, as of the moment, completely painted.

      So I finished up the insane project of Mouslings just in time for my son's celebration at school, the WIP is here:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86269-bones-mouslings-quite-an-assortment/
      Overall it drove me crazy, mainly because they are without a doubt the smallest things I have ever worked on and were extremely hard to paint. The kids really made me feel good about the whole thing though, as many of the kids (almost the whole class?) came up and were really appreciative of the gift. The teacher was even in awe of the detail on them and that I had hand painted them for all the kids.
      So, here is which mouslings were done:
      77286 Mousling King & Princess (3 each)
      77287 Mousling Thief & Assassin (1)
      77288 Mousling Sorcerer & Samurai (2)
      77289 Mousling Ranger & Yeoman (2)
      77290 Mousling Druid & Beekeeper (2)
      77547 Mousling Eastern (2)
      77548 Wizard Mouslings (3)
      Here is the first Group of 21 that were Clear coated first, followed by the 9 who got clear coated and returned to the kids the following day:)


      And now, closeups of the groups in no particular order :) As always, C&C is appreciated.

      So, I am taking on a quite ambitious project, I need these 30 mouslings ready for my son's 4th grade class by Friday??? (maybe following Monday, which would be nice haha) so he can give them out when they celebrate his birthday. So, here's the mini's (I am short two, but it should work out since there are 30 in his class and that's what Miniature Market sent. I ordered 32):

      Here they are unpacked, after a good washing:

      Mr. Bones is there because he will be my test case once they are all painted, he will be the one getting a matte varnish through my airbrush to see if I have everything correct, then I will know I am safe to coat all the rest:) More pics to come once I mount these tonight and get a primer coat on them tomorrow so I can see details.

      Welcome to my first ever WIP thread!  Where I try and paint half as good as the rest of you!  
       
      I love the mousling line Reaper does and the space mouslings were too cute to resist.  I picked up the collector's set on a mystery site too.  If I like this I might use it at Reapercon.
       
      Some assembly is required...  so stay tuned.

      The second group of November Mice are done. 


      It's good to be the king.


      Despite being labelled as a Druid, the mouse on the left reminds me more of a Necromancer type. 


      The Samurai's colors were inspired by the costume for Blackthorne in the Shogun tv series. The Wizard's colors stem from the character of Alexander the Magical Mouse, although I've yet to paint up an alligator from him to befriend.

      These were done in two batches, the first almost a year ago. 

      The whole crowd.

      The Band.


      The Staff. These were part of last year's batch and I tried to give the Innkeeper the Perpetual Bartender Sneer.


      The Drunks. The two on the sides were last year's batch.
