I've gotten to the basing point for Ma'al. I decided I wanted to put ivy vines around the base. While I just did the vines out of green stuff I'm not sure what to do about the leaves. I have a GSW leaf punch that I want to use but I'm not sure how to prep the leaves so nothing weird comes in with them. It's been suggested to me to use the oven but was given no further details. I have other ideas if I can't get the leaves to work but I'd really like to use them since I went through the trouble of getting the punch specifically for this.
So what would you do to real leaves to make them work for basing?
We all keep knick knacks and trinkets to make things from in the future. Whether it's some small bit, like dragon pendant I got from Salvation Army for 50 cents or some cardboard forms that hold tech devices in place that look like good buildings for Battletech.
I wrote about Bottlecaps as bases a while ago.
Recently, I found the plastic mounting bracket that's been floating around my bench and figured out what I wanted to start making. I usually draw out what I intend to do, but the shape of the bracket defined its purpose.
This compilation uses a bunch of various finds. So towards that end, I am going to have a little contest.
Guess all of the items which I used in here and you will get a random Bones mini. I will provide a numbered list and one clue because one SET is fairly hard to figure out.
5. ______ Bracket
Clue: These odd pieces were disassembled from a triangular cap.
The bricks are actual brick I bought off of Wish. I got the standard bricks plus the square in gray and brick red. I also have small triangles in brick red.
The stone was split length wise so it was nice and flat. The terrain is a custom grind of bark, black walnut bark, dark cork and and coarse normal cork.
The gears are from Michael's jewelry and findings section. Some of the white on the terrain is baking soda mixed with super glue.
Here's the piece primed...
Stay tuned and enjoy.
So here's the accompanying elf guy that was in the same set that the female elf that I painted a few days ago came from. They both actually had a little sprue of extra items you could put in their hands, but of course I didn't put anything in their hands. Why, you ask? No idea, I think it was the fact that I would have to choose one of them.
and here they are together:
Just like the maiden, I couldn't bring myself to paint eyebrows on the guys, because the faces are so small and delicate, I didn't want to put some huge unibrows on them.
So, if I don't get anything else painted before the yuletide, Merry Christmas everybody, and Happy New Year if I still don't get anything else finished by the end of the year!
So here is one I've recently finished, a Thunderbolt Mountain Elf maiden miniature. I really love Tom Meier's miniatures, but they have such fine detail and such small eyes it's hard to get in there even with a small pointy brush.
I wanted to give her light clear colors, so hopefully that worked out. The one other item on this was being she was blonde and her face is so small and delicate I didn't give her eyebrows, which I normally would do.
Anyhoos, have a look, hope you enjoy:
