The Last Hurrah Project..Photo Heavy

Recommended Posts

These are magnificent !  You outdid yourself in this creation my friend.

I just look at all of these and giggle, then examine them in detail and draw in my breath.

These are incredible, the faces, the hair, the grouping, the caps, the colors are all outstanding.

My friend, you are excelling in all that you do.

Dare I call you a master now ????

I think I shall... You have earned that moniker. 

You are now MASTER MALEFACTUS.

No one can overcome your ability to bring such beauty to the miniature imagination world.

Hail Master Malefactus. 

 

You have made me proud to call you my friend.

I am honored to have you as a friend, Jay. Thanks for the kind & enthusiastic response. I am delighted you like the stuff.

I have a couple more Mushrooms that are showing some progress:

...just their faces & a bit more ground cover & they will be done:

These three are ready for base coating:

...more later...perhaps.

I was looking at this illustration I found on Pinterest:

The Pixie Fellows hat's resemblance to a mushroom cap got me thinking of a Goblin in that type of headgear.

Is the Goblin wearing a Mushroom Cap or is he a new example of the evolving Mushrooms? 
The Mushrooms deny the latter idea.

I have been playing around with some new homemade faerie/butterfly wings.
The wings are made with a paper punch. The inner "skin" is the peal off layer 
from insulation foam:

The Goblin is a basic O.O.P. plastic G.W. Night Goblin with green stuff shoe extensions & belt:

I should have him primed later today..maybe.

One more done:

Since taking the photos I did a gloss finish on the tentacles & eyes for that extra icky look.

Now all that remains is the faces of the Trio. Then the Show Off & Group Portrait pics....the October/November Guys are lining up.

The latest Mushrooms & a couple of confused Goblins are all primed & ready for some color:

Basing takes longer than you'd imagine it would...I would imagine.

Good Golly Miss Molly !!!!

THESE ARE STUNNING, INCREDIBLE.

Honestly, I am amazed at what I am seeing.

Reaper should consider making you an offer for a copyright on these figures,

and produce them... I AM NOT kidding. 

Al, these things are incredible, and the paint jobs are stunning !

The characters are mind numbing, and SO ZANNY.

This is master-work my friend.

I am loving every moment of viewing them, and shivering in anticipation of a new one.

...the Goblins are kit-bashed from old G.W. plastic Night Goblins. SO G.W. might get upset if Reaper were to start making them.

HOWEVER, they could make the Mushrooms if they were so inclined.

I am delighted you like the new things; I hope you like them when they are all painted up in my usual bright colors as well.

Thanks for the kind & enthusiastic response, Jay. It is a GREAT way to start the day.

AND some new stuff in the works, another somewhat different Elf/Devil's Cap:

These fellows are either Black Scorpion or Laughing Monk miniatures that I got in my one & only visit to The War Store out in Southold, LI. Whichever

mini maker made them, a search revealed they are no longer doing so. One is a Fairy Hunter; the other is called Seven Sins...I think.

They had been based & base coated, but a decade plus of sitting  & waiting for attention took it's toll. So I rebased them & gave them a fresh base coat . Maybe

this time I will overcome the intimidation factor that heavily cluttered miniatures are so go at instilling...or not:

Having all sorts of stuff going at once isn't really an efficient way of doing things, but it makes the work table look interesting.

I added another Mushroom to the October Gang. This one is a Elf/Devil's Cup type:

AND he is now base coated:

The Gang sans the Goblins:

Seen here with Leo Sizechek providing scale:

These are pretty hefty Mushrooms.

More awesome stuff!!!

 

You know, I wonder, one of those Devil Cap Mushrooms might get a mutation, something with tentacles or spider legs, so it can hunt it's prey?

 

Anyway, looking forward to see the finished versions.

Those nostalgic miniatures are awesome as well, they fit in your theme.

The Devil's Cup with arms & fangs I did awhile ago does look much more predatory. This one looks like he could be annoying.

I am delighted you like all the stuff. Thus far keeping in theme has been pretty easy. Thanks for the reply, Glitter.
