Fantasy Vignette...The Cellar

Recommended Posts

I think a good alternate name for this piece would be The Seller. :;):

 

I like this piece. You did a good job on the mini, but I really like all the little details you added, as you usually do.

Hi Darsc! Your suggestion is ironic...I have a (2nd) piece of this figure and I plan to put her outside of a medieval pub/tavern by the door...I like your title (which I would like to use...with your permission)...Do you think that the (title) would cause objections from/on the site?

Hey there Catdancer! Just put a couple cases of produce or bottles in that vignette, like you did here, and leave it up to the viewers imagination on what she's selling. :;):

 

EDIT: Of course you have my permission. If I ever say anything that inspires you to create or do something, please go ahead. I'd be tickled if you did.

Those little "details" like the box's, bottles and barrels are what make these little jewels.

 

I have another half finished project where I scratch build and counts as these things

That I want to show you.

Hi Catdancer.

 

Did you ever do the followup piece outside of the tavern?

 

I can't recall having seen it.

Hi Darsc! My work schedule (on miniature projects) has not allowed me to do anything on the (Tavern = Seller)...but I have not forgotten about it. I am working on some future contest pieces (not to compete or to be judged...but so that I can earn a MonkeySloth ribbon (for participation). I am also working on finishing up the last four pieces for my Ren Fair project...2 of which are what I consider to be " center pieces "...(the produce market and the food court).

 

I am also considering using the same figure (from the cellar vignette) for the tavern piece...I really like that figure, and don't know of any Reaper female figure that offers the same wardrobe and feel...(do you know of any that might work)?

Didn't mean to put any pressure on you Catdancer. Just wondering if I may have missed it.

I am amazed at your output of quality vignettes and dioramas etc.

 

When I get home from work I'll take a look through Reapers catalogue to see if I can spot any suitable minis. In the meantime have you seen all the minis in the set I've linked to below. I know you've used at least one of them before.

Darsc, your question didn't put any pressure on me at all...As you know by now, I tend to work at my own pace and set my schedules so that I have no (time related pressure). I only encounter pressure when it comes to commission work and the client wants me to do a 4 week project (but he wants it in 5 days).

 

As far as the (3 lady Reaper set goes)...I have painted that set (4) times...(1) for the wife and (3) commissions...but none of those figures have the " true " feeling of a " seller " standing outside of a tavern. The Hasslefree figure has a wardrobe...plus an aura and look to her that lends itself to such a vignette. There is a set of (3) ladies put out by a foreign company (I can't remember who) that would also work...but as you know...I do business with only U.S. firms.

I'm drawing a blank on more suitable minis Paul.

I went through old and new issues of Reapers catalogue Casketworks. I went through their list of minis I have that are not in their printed catalogue. I tried searching through their online store... No luck on finding any that you don't already have. I can't think of any other American companies producing something suitable. Bombshell Babes has a number of nice female minis, but they're mostly armed adventuring types.

 

Sorry I can't be of more help at the moment.

      And my last figure from this week, a giant rat,  sculpted way long ago by the immortal Julie Guthrie. I should have taken a comparison shot for this one, as he's really small, but you can probably guess because his base is one of those itty bitty bases I think used for 15 mm figures, not sure where I scored them from. They might have come with the familiars in some Stonehaven Kickstarter. 
       
      Being that I couldn't take the Friday after July 4th off, because the rest of my department already had dibs, I ended up taking Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as well as today and I've had some pretty productive painting mornings, so got lots done and this is another one of those figures:
       
      He's slightly out of focus but he's really, really small.. One one of the angles you can see a little piece of flash I couldn't get rid of.
       
      Anyway, enjoy once again! More figures in a few days!

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I took Roman Gruba's OSL class at Cancon. He wanted to teach us about atmosphere so we were supposed to paint one side as if it were lit by moonlight and the other side by another source, in this case, her lantern.
       
      Her broom is only sticky tacked on so pay no attention to the blob on her back.
       
      Technically, she isn't "finished" as I would have spent a lot more time glazing and working in a little more color. I think she turned out pretty cool for only two hours of work in class and I feel like I learned a lot.

      Painted back in January, for table top use.
      Unfortunately I need new lights and my camera is MIA so crappy pictures with the desk lamp and phone it is....../grumbles
      CC always welcome and yes the "Boss" rat is the one with the skull. 1st level adventurers beware!

      Finally got around to basing up the 20 pack of rats from the Amscan "Super Mega Mix" bag of Halloween favors. {I've never seen this rat mold anywhere else] Drilled holes into the rat's neck and using Gorilla Glue to secure the tail tips (tails secured in place with rubber bands until glue cured). Tails were tucked to the side of each rat after curing.
       
      Bases are 25mm x 50mm rounded calvary bases ( a.k.a. Pill bases ) made of custom ordered MDF. Texture just happened from the process of splitting the bases with a X-Acto then applying PVA & paint then drybrushing.
       
      Rats got a bit of sloppy drybrushing to differentiate between each along with pools of blood and tail positioning. Not very good, but I'm glad to have these ready for tabletop.
       
      And now I just got the idea  to use gorilla glue to make some "rabid froth" on some mouths...
