Hello all you mortals hanging from this Reaper coil!
So tonight is another Tom Meier miniature, from his Arthurian range, which is now once again available at Ral Partha Legacy, the Lady of the Lake. I'm really starting to get into these figures even with their small sizes and petite little heads. These are true 25 mm figures. Got a few more kind of schedule to work on in the near future as well:
and a close up of her face, which, with my new iPhone I can apparently get very close up:
and a back view:
The only bummer about this one was I made her what I thought was going to be a nice little base, because she doesn't come on a base. You can either glue her to a small square metal base or create something. So I did a base which had "water" at the edge. After I got it done and it dried though, I tried to get her on it, and her cloak was so long and straight across, I couldn't get it to accommodate itself to the base in a flat way to make it look good. So I just threw some putty on another base, let it dry, and then just painted if simple blues.
Her color scheme itself is some pretty monotone colors, lots of blues, with just the flowers in her hair to have some bursts of color.
Anyway, hope you enjoy!
Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers,
So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy.
I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it. I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all. My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure?
To give a comparison, here is how my camera turned out:
It's a lot darker.
Anyhoos, looking for photographic opinions.
And to give you an idea of how small this figure it is, here she is in comparison to a US quarter:
During my Shelf of Shame Project I started with the fairy. Since there is only room for one project on my wet palette, this one had to take the back seat during RVE. Today I finished another project, at least as far as the palette is concerned, so I can finally continue with my little fairy. Every aspect of this project was created by rolling dice.
For everyone interested, here is a somewhat elaborate summary of part one:
During weekend I usually put down my brushes. At the moment, painting is a stand in for my job that's on hold because of Corona restrictions, so there will probably be no progress until next week. I just wanted to set up everything so I can start right away!
When Stonehaven started doing their kickstarters, they usually released their version of a troll or two with each one. Since I liked the variety of elves, dwarves, and other smallfolk in the kickstarters i tended to get the completionist so i found myself with a bunch of these, even though resin is not my favorite medium to work with. I did a few and the rest sat... until i needed giants for my Runelord campaign. I needed hill giants and i dont like hill giants as depicted by the typical miniatures for them, but the trolls were cute and they fit the size i was looking for and the legend that hill giants have tails was born.
Anyway, here are the latest 2, it brings my total now to 5 hill giant/trolls and one broccoli Ent. the party has faced 3 of them previously and it was a mixed success: they won, but they went looking for a place to heal and rest immediately afterwards! (come to think of it, Stonehaven makes up a rather large part of the party, the Kobold ninja, the grippli paladin, the half-orc barbarian and the dwarven cleric are also Stonehaven sculpts)
anyway for your viewing pleasure:
