Stuff I finally finished! Yay!

Recommended Posts

I'm great at procrastination. It's one of my best skills. But I finally finished all these minis which have been on my desk for a while. Mostly trying to get them out of the way so I can work on my diorama.

 

First off, and proudest, The Jester! He's a conversion of the stonehaven gnome skeleton into a skeletal jester. It's a living doll that attached itself to one of the characters in our current campaign.

Next we have a little crystal dragon. I took the spiretop drake and ice imp from the plastic WotC minis, and put them together to make it. The dragon is supposed to look like the Skylander Flashwing.

And here's my Lysette, from the beauty pageant in October. Pretty pleased with her ^_^

Gus the Innkeeper!

Finally, Sir Forscale, the Green Knight! I painted him green and silver for Hubby. Those are his favorite colours ^_^

Hope you enjoy them all ::):

The freehand on Lysette's skirt is quite impressive. I like the effect on the crystal dragon's wings, they look like translucent crystal.

The dress is awesome on Lysette! The detail on the barkeeps towel and mug are great as well.

 

 

I actually bought a skeletal jester from Reaper called Hecklemeyer (see link)  http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/hecklemeyer/latest/02106

 

I didn't even change his name.  I got him because he looked cool.  Somehow he has become the most popular villain I ever created.  His jester rod lets him dominate others, and at first he was accompanied by the big flesh golem (not my painted version just a quick one I found).  I have him always talking in rhyme which is hard, so I had to come up with everything he would say for every possible thing that would happen ahead of time.  During a big battle the characters destroyed his skeletal jester body so he instead possessed a draco lich flying off with one fo the characters who is now a minion and the player had to make a new character until that one is rescued.

 

Hecklemeyers Heckle list (sample)

"Your spells lack power, give up and take a shower!"

 

"ha ha ha, you miss and miss with your sword, watching you I grow bored."

 

"Little girl with purple hair, you are always dying, you can't win, so stop trying" (There was a rhyming swear word in here notlisted for the forum)

 

"Fools, you cannot fly, and so I leave you here to cry"

 

"Clavsa, Clavsa, she's my pet, stealing and stabbing, whatever it is I feel needs grabbing.   Entranced she is, as you can see, try to break my spell, you won't succeed."

 

"Tybalt you big ugly goon, try thinking for once, hopefully soon."

 

"Sinikka is that your best spell you dolt?  Now see one of mine, my big lightning bolt!"

 

"Do you think I will burn, what with all this fire? Your spells are jokes of which I tire."

 

" Perhaps you haven't noticed I can never die, don't even bother and try.  Go away now and have a big ale, else your death will be the next tale."

 

"Ow, ow, ow, that really hurt! I'm so mad this time, that I cannot rhyme."

 

"Swords, and arrows, and spells, oh my! I better go cower and cry."

 

"Mommy go home to your baby, even an old bag like you serves a purpose, maybe"

Hecklemeyer was actually the original Jester mini. But he's too big (so is this one technically, but getting one that's to scale would be impossible to paint. It's one foot tall), so I kept looking for one.

Before I put her away I realized (again) that I'd forgotten to paint Lysette's leg. I swear every time I looked at it I thought "I should paint that bit next" and then I didn't.

 

For proof, here's her a view of her leg.

Look! It's skin coloured! Instead of... black  :blush:

Did you submit Lysette to the Beauty Pageant thread?  I don't remember seeing her there, and I definitely would remember a paisley freehand.  I'm going to have to agree that she's a stand-out in the crowd, although everything else is looking good too!

I didn't finish her in time. I got real sick. On the other hand, I wouldn't have had time to do the paisleys if I hadn't gotten sick, so it worked out.

      So as I mentioned in my Mr. Bones show off, I painted up Garrick AKA ForScale to be a test run for Matte Varnishing (which didn't happen through airbrush, next time I guess), he did get a brush on varnish which went very well, so without further Ado, here is my take on Sir Forscale (overall he came out well, but his yellow shield IMHO sucks, maybe I just don't do well with yellow) C&C always welcome.

      I'm a bit delayed on these photos, as I got distracted by various things but pictures are finally taken, even if there's apparently some dust on them now >.>;;;;
       
      Anyways!  Back in February (Feb 18th to be precise, at least according to messages I'd posted on Discord) I decided I wanted to give speed painting a whirl, in order to try and develop a few techniques that I could then apply to my Skaven horde of doom.  I also wanted to try out a few different mini holders (generic tylenol, as well as Motrin bottles) to see if I'd prefer something like the Mini Holder, or if I could just DIY something, as my current solutions tends to wind up causing my right paw to cramp up after a while, and maneuvering the miniature isn't always the easiest.  Such was partially inspired by the awesome thread @ManvsMini did about custom holders and also a desire to see whether it would be worth splurging on a Hobby Holder with Handle Mod 1.
       
      Short version is that the Motrin bottles won out, although the generic tylenol bottle was handy because it has a lid that spins more easily...  So technically the Hobby Holder would be able to do both, AND give me a brush rest.
       
      Anyways, I'm rambling in a show-off thread....  Originally I'd wanted to do just the one mini, but quickly wound up putting two up so I could directly compare the two bottle types I had on hand.  I think I set my goal at "finish a single mini within two hours", and I'd say I pulled that off, since I managed to do two in 2h10min...  So needless to say, rather happy about that!  Oh, it also morphed into some sort of "less than twelve colours used" and "you can only use one 10-well palette, and once a colour is in one, it's committed" challenges too, both of which I was successful with (11 paints total used, including washes, and I sure wound up using all ten wells too).  Not quite sure why I do such, but eh, it was for fun, and I had fun, which is the most important aspect of it all in my eyes!
       

      ^So first up, obvious is Sir Forscale, aka Garrick the Bold...  In Bones.
       

      ^And then Juliette, Female Sorceress, also in Bones.
       
       
      And since I can't resist, yup, all done with size 0 brushes, because that's pretty much all I had on hand back then.
       
       
      So, I have to playfully ask myself, what did I learn, besides the obvious aspect of a fox loves orange and black?  Uhm...  Good question.  I know I did a decent amount of drybrushing, but I also can't even remember if I used any metallic paints or not as it's been a while >.>;;;;

      This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.

      So here is my slightly converted Garrick the Bold, using Reaper's Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Paint. I have a few bottles to use up.
       
      I used Reaper MSP Filigree Silver for the armor and sword. I don't like this paint; it went on way too thick and thinning just made is worse.
       
      I know the ribbon is supposed to be pink, but I liked this color scheme better.
       
      Oh, and crest on the shield is made from plasticard. So many tiny pieces were lost and had to be re-cut.

      I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue!
       
      Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own.
       
      Those two things resulted in this:

       

       

       

       
      I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange.
       
      I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them.
       
      And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk:

       

       
      Huzzah!
