I like the mini, and really like the base, but the union of the two is a bit disjointed. He looks like he's floating on the rock (though he is a magus, so maybe he is  ::):).

Good job on the black.  It reads to me as dark gray (with the pants being lighter).  I suspect you intended it to look darker, but black is hard.  The spell/force effect on the hand is well-done - I half-expected to see a glowing ball in the side-shots.

Thanks for the comments and compliments everyone!


I was thinking of taking a couple of the comments from my WIP thread and applying them to the figure and then re-taking the pictures (such as adding some brown staining from the mud on the base of the column).


The other thing I was thinking of doing was changing out the background. I feel the gray background washes out the blacks/grays of the figure and the column.

Thanks galladril  ^_^


I'm not sure what will happen either, but I can see what everyone thinks and post up a few different backgrounds to see what is best and go with that as my final product. I have a tan colored and a white. I think I need to go get some blue and black as well or bite the bullet and get some from Hangar18's site.

Dang Ub3r !

Incredible base...

The figure and the basing are fantastic together.

Looks so totally natural !

Congrats !


Thanks Jay!


Great work on the spell effect. Looks very glowy the dark grey/black was also well done. I would have centered him on the base but that's just my opinion. Very good job!


Thank you! I didn't want to center him on the base as I felt it was more dynamic to put him on the column overlooking the road and kind of scouting ahead, plus it gives a better look of the old road as another point of interest. I do appreciate your comments and take all advice/critiques seriously.

That base did turn out fantastic.  The spell effect is really working, too.  He is very "Vader's apprentice."


I think you are getting a grey on grey on grey thing happening and changing the background is a good idea.


Yeah, I was thinking a weapon swap would make him look an awful lot like the Sith apprentices from KOTOR.

      Okay, so maybe he's not smelling his cloak.  But it sure did make a fun alternate for why he's posed like that. 

      I didn't do my normal battle report because i neglected to take photos while i was going.  I'm happy with this guy.  Kept it very very simple.  I'll still have to base him and a little clean up on the cloak, but overall I'm happy with him.

      Black on black, your standard sci-fi street-runner.  Gave his coat a touch of purple just to give the eye something to look at.

      One of the three minis in the "44036 Dreadmere Females" pack
      aka "Serena, Dreadmere Rogue" as she is known in the metal version.
      More like, "Serena, Dark Brotherhood Assassin" if you ask me. Nothing screams secret stealth assassin on a mission to do bloody murder as having members-only assassin guild special shrouded armour that is distinct and different from all other armour types and uniforms...


      Hm. I thought I heard something...

      Started these at the same time I did the Middenheimers. One is based on Astrid from Skyrim, the other on an old coworker whom the sculpt resembled. Victory two of the challenge thus far. 

      Overall I'm happy with how they came out. again I went with a simple grey stone base in case I rebase them in the future.

      "Dine and dash, eh?!"
      "The Dark Brotherhood eats for free!"

      The cloak could've come out better, but I'm more concerned with clearing the Shelf of Incompleteion currently.
