Thanks guys.  The next Iron Hero is the "Executioner," now sold by Valiant as "Carnivale."  I thought she was kinda neat until I saw that... thing... on her back.  For this mini I decided to practice on color transitions, I went with what I called an analogous complimentary color scheme in my WIP.  I.e. the dress and cloth streamers are complimentary to each other, but the colors transitioning are analogous.  At least roughly.  I just eyeballed it rather than trying to perfectly match everything on the color wheel.  ^_^  I also tried for a cool white for her sash, and attempted to give her lips and eyes rather than just dark holes in the mask.  The lips were actually sculpted, but if there were eyes they don't appear to have survived on this mini. 


She isn't securely attached to this base, just gripped by the cork, so it may change.  I don't really have any urban bits lying around, and her color doesn't exactly say park ranger.

Thanks Grim.


Here's the last Iron Hero for awhile.  It looks like I'll need to finally get around to picking up a jewelers saw or something similar for the next one.  As I mentioned in the WIP, her bow arm was miscast, and it kinda took the fun out of it. It was also mangled.  I had intended to attempt to glue the fletching back onto the arrow, but it disappeared on me.  sigh. 


I didn't want to paint her up as a brown and green ranger like 99% of her owners probably did, so I went with a more vibrant color combo.




Another Valiant reclaim, now sold as Robyn Wrightway.

      These are some of the last minis I painted before the presbyopia started to kick in. At one time I could see what I was doing!  But since then I have dis-improved.
      My experiments with OTC reading glasses continue—I must have almost a dozen pairs at this point.

      If I remember rightly I painted the Gnoll and the Paladin at a Reapercon several years back. Or at least that is when I started them. But the remembry is a funny thing—so that might not be totally right.
      At one point Sir William got to serve in a Warhammer Chaos Army as either a BSB or a unit Champion. It helped that his broccoli base + the plastic regulation square base + the steel washer let him tower head and shoulders above the other plastic Chaos warriors. The steel washer is under there to let him stick magnetically to the unit tray.
      I need to incorporate the Gnoll into my Reven Army for Warlord.

      I just entered this into the Here Be Dragons competition, and I thought I'd post him here for commentary too.
      This is Viszeralyn, the Oracle dragon that I decided to paint up kind of like a Balrog.
      In my mind now, he's Charsaug- a magma dragon from the Iron Kingdoms setting.
      Oh, and I've also posted him to Coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
