VIGNETTE TITLE...LARA, JUNGLE RELIC HUNTER...

 

FEMALE FIGURE...HASSLEFREE (#HFA001)...Eve, Adventurer...

 

NOTE...This is the (4th) fantasy vignette project as outlined in my (WIP) vignette projects for Oct/Nov 2013...

 

FINISHED PRODUCT...This is the finished vignette product for the step-by-step (WIP) (Lara In The Jungle)...posted Sept. 13, 2013...After an extensive month long search of both retail markets and for trade postings which netted negative results in trying to find/locate the (Freebooter - Lara Croft) figure...I gave up and went ahead and finished this vignette using the Hasslefree figure.

 

I hope you like the end results...even though I would have loved to have my first choice figure to finish this vignette.

Hey, cool!! You finished it, I remember the start but then I never saw it and kinda wondered what happened. you did a great job on this one.

Thank you Chaoswolf! No, my friend...I did not forget about it...I just put it on the shelf in hopes of finding the figure I wanted to use...as I stated, I spent a month searching dozens of retail firms/hobby shops and miniature manufacturers...also posted (for trade) postings on a few web sites...but nothing was successful...so I decided to finish the vignette using my (2nd choice) figure. I am glad that you find it to your liking.

You settled on the Hasslefree figure for Lara and I think she turned out really well. I've enjoyed watching you build the vignette and there are a few things that I learned from this one that I'm hoping to include in a project I'm currently working on. You see, you do have many things still to teach me :;):

 

Excellent work again!!!

As always; thank you for your comments Anne. As you may have read, I finished the vignette using the Hasslefree figure (not by choice but by necessity...could not find the Freebooter figure anywhere). I am (as always) looking forward to your current project!

 

Your creation is WONDERFULLY imaginative. I has the hallmark of a FINELY DONE piece; i.e., every time I look at it I see something new. GREAT WORK!

Thank you malefactus; your comments are greatly appreciated!

Beautiful figure and such a lush and beautiful background! I have diorama envy I think. How much time did this whole thing take you in terms of hours?

Hi 72moonglum...The vignette base construction took about 12 hours (that was 4 sessions of about 3 hours each)...the painting of the figure took about 8 hours...the final finishing touches to the whole vignette took about 2 hours. So overall (in hours) it took about 22 hours...but the work was done over a period of 9 days.

Wow, quite impressive! That's a lot of time and dedication, but the results are spectacular!

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
       
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hard to go wrong with sexy female demons, but this one was a devil in more than one sense of the word from start to finish.  Despite being cast in metal she is pretty fragile. The trident broke off and for years she sat in my box of unpainted figs, until one day I found the little pointy bit.  Her tail, likewise, kept bending and i was sure I'd lose that too. 
       
      Did her skin with the Bright Skin triad, because that's been waiting patiently for years as well.  Her face is a mess, but overall she came out ok.
