Hi everyone, it's been some time. It's been hard for me to find some time to paint lately. I'm working on my Cat Critter display base as much as I can, a little every night. So, I thought some of you might like to see part of my progress. Here are part of the statues and "collapsed" pillars that will be decorating the display diorama.
The lions are Reaper Miniatures 77341, sculpted by Geoff Valley. The collapsed pillars are 72591, Wizkids. I cut them to separate the blocs and painted them in white marble colors. There are veins of quartz and gold in the marble. As you can see, I glued the lions tail on their back to make them look more like statues. The lions are mounted on 74012, 25 x 50mm cavalry base.
This is Bones Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai.
I found his details a bit crude and decided to paint it as a statue for my Nippon Project.
Speed Paint with the Reaper Stone Triad.
Scale 75 Decayed Metal, P3 Molten Bronze and Vallejo Verdigris.
There is a legend that deep in the woods around Kyoto there stands a statue of one of Nippon's greatest warriors.
If one would find it and paid respect to it the statue might bestow luck on that person.
It is also believed that when the Empire is in dire need, the statue will come to life to fight once more to protect Nippon.
I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues for my Dragons Don't Share Ruins. My WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71651-dragons-dont-share-2/
I am still working on the overall but I was happy with how my "statues" turned out so wanted to share them in a Show Off!
I can't get over how cute these two little minis are. I had no idea they were so cute. I will be buying more to paint as "normal" but I think they make excellent statues as well!
Pictures of Virgo in first reply.
When I got my Bones III Obsidian Crypt I had a little idea.
I put Kaladrax ( now Discontinued) on it.
She made it her throne!
I also included some pieces of the Bones III Graveyard Set, and a few other pieces I had laying around.
One statue is broken because Kaladrax swung her tail when she landed.
I made some roses with the basing stuff @knarthex had send me a while ago.
Also my first real attempt at marble.
I made red marble and white/yellow marble for the Crypt.
WIP here if interested.
So without further ado here is Kaladrax on her Mausoleum!
Hope you like it.
Feel free to like, comment and praise.
Any complaints...talk to the Dragon!
I painted "Eric, the Paladin initiate" as a random mini from Bones 2.
I like his contemplative look and pose... So I decided to make a little vignette/diorama by adding one of the graveyard statue from Bones3.
I call it "Time to Reflect".
The base is an Orange juice cap, and the tree is from Woodland Scenic.
