By Lord of the Dish Pit
Finally got around to finishing one of the minis that's been on the table since Spring.
Behold Sister Maris of the Order of Our Lady of Elf Beating!
Not sure if the stakes are a secondary hand weapon or meant to be launched out of the gun...
Could pass as a Sith from this angle...
Since I didn't know if the gun was for launching stakes, or some kind of sunlight cannon, I decided to just keep it a dull black/grey in the style of modern firearms, to try and keep something of a sense of realism about it and to tie it in with the rifle of Grace, the Holy Assassin.
The Sisters of Elf Beating thus far, Sister Maria, Sister Maris, and Grace the Holy Assassin.
Welcome to my Kickstarter!
My name is Mark Norton, and I am working full-time as a sculptor going by the name Frozen Ninja 3D. I am designing and sculpting my own line of highly detailed figures with the hopes of bringing people together for fun hobby times. Please visit the bottom of this page for examples of my work, and to see the quality I am trying to achieve.
This is the fourth Kickstarter project that I have run, and the third project that features models entirely designed and sculpted by me.
What is being offered in this project?
The goal of this project is to release an entire line of high quality plinths and display stands. These plinths make any figure or bust stand out among the rest, and will make an exciting addition to any collection. In addition, these plinths will help bring your competition entries to that next level.
FIRST - MEDIUM SIZE PLINTHS - $12 each, or cheaper if you get a "Bundle" Pledge.
To start the project, I am offering Medium size Plinths. The top of the Medium plinth is approximately 35mm across, which is ideal for most miniatures, and busts look awesome on them as well. These plinths are about 44mm Tall, with base sizes ranging from 42mm to 49mm. Each plinth will be supplied unpainted.
In addition to Medium Size Plinths, I have Large Size Plinths planned as stretch goals, as well as some other fun sizes.
I have a lot of great models planned for this project! Here is the starting lineup (scroll down further to see the stretch goals that are planned...)
Here is a list of all of the plinths that are currently available in this Kickstarter project. I will continue to update this list as stretch goals are reached.
Shipping will be charged separately, please refer to the shipping chart below for rates.
These are the plinths that will be available once we hit certain funding levels.
The First Stretch Goal is titled "Chains". The Medium Plinth will be unlocked if we can reach $1,800 in funding. It will be available as an Add-On for $12.
WIP Thread here
I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out. To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.
Here's the plate
In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:
I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.
Awesome random encounter, paraphrased:
DM describes a green, toad-like beastie. It--
Me: "Is that a GREEN SLAAD?"
DM: "Well, roll a Knowledge: the Planes..."
Me: "No, no, I mean does it look like THIS?" [reveals recently-painted Green Slaad]
The Rogue: "Isn't this like a miniature painter's dream? Having just the right mini for a completely random encounter?"
Me: HUGE HAPPY SMILE.
I'm painting a mini with a light source, and decided to rebase the beastie with some water effects, probably epoxy resin. I'll probably try to make the water at least slightly rough, creating interest for the eye. I woke up in a cold sweat this morning realizing that the light source should be reflected (or possibly just highlighted) in/on the water.
My initial thought was to:
lightly (heh) color the bottom of the pool as if it were dry and lit by the light source pour and texture the water highlight the water by drybrushing from the light source out.
My concern about this is that if the viewer looks toward the light, the surfaces of any wavelets will be highlighted on the opposite side from the POV. In other words, the viewer will see the undersides or backsides of any highlights through the translucent wavelets, and this might not look the way the viewer expects.
Has anyone done this? I looked around for a few examples but although there are plenty of doing wave effects (froth and foam), I haven't found any yet that look like translucent glare.
