I found a base at GenCon that I think is just perfect for this figure.

She's a cutie! Thanks Reaper for making so many fun figures.

The feathers and the flower were fun. I learned a lot.

Haw! I almost missed the trap door and the hand caught in it. Ouch! I like the tan and the "bubblegum" pink lipstick combo with that russet hair. The green-to-lime transition on the feathers looks nice, too!

so cute! Love the base. Is it leaning in real life? Washer maybe for stability? Excellent work on the hat decoration!

Girot, IIRC the base is one of a pair of "dungeon" bases I got on Ebay a few years ago. (they were a gift to Jay) I don't remember the manufacturer, but I bought from Dzur2003. Not microarts, not armorcast, not Forgecraft. Sorry I can't give you more info.

Yes, I glued it to a bottle cap to paint it and the glue was better than I thought. I'll have to file or sand it off.

Thanks for the compliments

Oh no worries. I very recently did a ton of looking around for bases that were sculpted like wooden boards. I've seen that base I just can't remember who made it.

I don't use glue anymore Ive switched to been using poster tack (unless its a solo figure with no base or its a really big figure, like the savage king) it holds them tight to the bottle cap (and doesn't harm the cap either)

I've got close to a dozen models that need wooden planked bases and at $2.20 per insert it's not worth the cost. I can get whole resin bases with equivilent detail (all wood floor style) for $0.48 each. I really like the pewter inserts but they're too expensive for what my endgame is. ^_^

I've been just buying bases everywhere I go. I have a couple of storage boxes full now. It's been great to be able to look through them and find just the right base to go with a figure. It really added a lot to this one.

      This is my second entry into the Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. I wanted to do this one because I love doing dragonman (dragonborn) conversions. There just aren't enough kinds of dragonmen to model for various character classes. And I'm glad that the catfolk minis came out within the last year because when I think about dragonmen, I like to see their clawed hands and feet, so it makes them great for such a conversion in my eyes.
       
      These were the minis used for parts, including pieces from the dragonman conversion kit: 03457.
       

       
      Poor Shadoweyes got her head and tail cut off.  Then I had to do some filing and filling to smooth out the cuts (particularly in the back because the tail was sculpted against the backs of the right leg and sword) and some of the fur pattern on her arms and legs. Also had to create small bit armor at the base of the tail so the pieces flowed together well. All Captain Razig lost was his hat and added a head and tail from the conversion kit.
       
      Originally, she was going to be green with dark purple/red armor.  But after I got the original base coats on, I felt she looked too much like a lizard and not a dragon, so I switched it up.
       

       

       

       
      She ended up being the winner.  I was shocked. I figured I might place, but pretty as she is, I didn't think this was one of my better pieces. But she was fun to do and I'm glad the Reaper folks put together this event.
       
      And now, because I still feel bad about chopping off Shadoweyes' head, I'm using a portion of the winnings to buy another one to paint!

      As with the other ghosts, I was playing around with quickly airbrushing a ghost effect.  I liked the green tone of these Bones 4 minis, but I'm not a big fan of translucent figures.  I wanted to paint over them, but keep the ghost vibe.  These are much greener in person.  I like them, but I think the blue ghosts in the other thread turned out a tad better.  These ended up a hair too bright for what I was going for, but it's all in the name of science! I might glaze them down a bit later.
