VIGNETTE TITLE...IT'S DOUBLE TROUBLE

 

FIGURES...Reaper (Sugar # 50176 & Candy # 50024)

 

NOTE...The whole vignette is scratch built except for the (2) miniatures...it is an oval base of (4" x 2 3/4")...the stone walk is my own plaster casting.

 

EXECUTION...During my planning stage...I wanted to feature these (2) miniatures on the same static base (as a display type vignette) where the figures sort of mirrored each other in both weapon hand & out stretched hand. But my dilemma was in the choice of motifs...

 

(A). Execute them in a really hard rock punker motif with darkened eyes, tattoos, torn hose, etc...or...

 

(B). Execute them in a softer semi hard rock punker motif and still maintain the cuteness of the two figures...

 

I chose to execute them in the option (B) style.

 

I hope you like this little piece.

Oh yes, I love this! You did the sheer stalking so well. That's a technique I've tried to learn but can't get a handle on yet. I also like the blue hair you used, very punk, but still oh so cute. Can you tell me how you did those flowers on the back of the fence?

The flowers are simple silk flowers from the craft store that I remove from the fake stems and mount on real wooden stems/vines/etc.

Why not do both?

:;):

 

I have given serious consideration to doing that (or at least one of the girls in a solid pure hard rock/pure punker motif)...I just need to come up with a

solid setting idea and base design.

Reminds me of Dirty Pair. Nice, bright and clean diorama - and most important of all, fun!

 

Yup yup. Good call.

 

They look good. I like the one-stocking look, and viewers note that there is no such detail sculpted on the models, that's all paint. Nicely done. Plenty to look at in the background, as usual. And another creepy red lamp post. Any chance of a "neighborhood" shot?

All the vignettes with the red lamp posts placed together. Catdancer's own "red light district."

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Finally finished up the Gunny Peegs this weekend - was mostly finishing off the basing. They are small guinnea pigs, with guns, from one of Bad Squiddo Games' Kickstarter (although I believe they are available on her site as well now)

      This is a Heroclix figure (Lex Corp Security if you're interested) that i got out of a Box of Goodwill. She was a quick and easy repaint, I liked the colors they used, so I just fixed them up so they weren't slopped all over each other. I figure she'll work well in modern, zombie, and possibly near future/ sci-fi games as a secret agent or something like that.
      I tried to paint her sunglasses to look as though they were reflecting the sky; does it work or does it look lousy? Be honest, please.

      Found this guy in a box of stuff. He'd been cut off the base, readied for pins, and primed. I thought at first it was a conversion, because there's a definite line across his neck and I found some putty on the back of one shoulder, but it turns out this is how he looks in the store, too.
       
      We always need goons for our current superheroes game, so I gave him a quick base coat and a wash and called it good.  He's on a Secret Weapon base I got in their Bag of Crap.
