This was my second diorama for ReaperCon but was the one not judged. The idea behind it was a Mousling adventuring party finding treasure but also finding that others were already there. I wish I had done more with it, such as adding more elements on the Mousling side and possibly a back drop but I was sadly running out of time and this was the entry that suffered for it.
“...and I, Colonel Duke Jones, stand on the surface of Mars for all of humankind and in the spirit of exploration that’s taking our species beyond its Earthly bounds. And I’m lighting this cigar to celebrate a successful mission.”
“Haha. Good speech, Duke. You're the first human in 76 years to stand on the surface of another planet. How’s it feel to be further from Earth than any other human being?”
“Pretty good, Pioneer. It’s humbling and really gives a sense of perspective. The air is thin but breathable. Those terraforming guys did a great job. Hey, the camera’s working, right? This is being broadcast back to Earth?”
“Yep, it's all good. There's a delay but they're getting it. Audience figures are even bigger than Kim Kardashian’s state funeral, so well done!”
“How do things look from up there in orbit?”
“We’re all good, just watching you and keeping an eye on your vitals.”
“OK, Pioneer. I’m gonna have another puff on this cigar and—”
“Duke, sorry to break in, but Jim just had an idea. The Earth is directly behind you. Could you turn around so we can get a shot of you looking back at it?”
“Sure thing, Pioneer.”
“That's just perfect, Duke. Everything’s A-OK.”
“Good to know, Pioneer. We're still live, right?”
“We certainly are. Jim, you owe me fifty dollars.”
So I finished up the insane project of Mouslings just in time for my son's celebration at school, the WIP is here:
Overall it drove me crazy, mainly because they are without a doubt the smallest things I have ever worked on and were extremely hard to paint. The kids really made me feel good about the whole thing though, as many of the kids (almost the whole class?) came up and were really appreciative of the gift. The teacher was even in awe of the detail on them and that I had hand painted them for all the kids.
So, here is which mouslings were done:
77286 Mousling King & Princess (3 each)
77287 Mousling Thief & Assassin (1)
77288 Mousling Sorcerer & Samurai (2)
77289 Mousling Ranger & Yeoman (2)
77290 Mousling Druid & Beekeeper (2)
77547 Mousling Eastern (2)
77548 Wizard Mouslings (3)
Here is the first Group of 21 that were Clear coated first, followed by the 9 who got clear coated and returned to the kids the following day:)
And now, closeups of the groups in no particular order :) As always, C&C is appreciated.
So, I am taking on a quite ambitious project, I need these 30 mouslings ready for my son's 4th grade class by Friday??? (maybe following Monday, which would be nice haha) so he can give them out when they celebrate his birthday. So, here's the mini's (I am short two, but it should work out since there are 30 in his class and that's what Miniature Market sent. I ordered 32):
Here they are unpacked, after a good washing:
Mr. Bones is there because he will be my test case once they are all painted, he will be the one getting a matte varnish through my airbrush to see if I have everything correct, then I will know I am safe to coat all the rest:) More pics to come once I mount these tonight and get a primer coat on them tomorrow so I can see details.
