I started this guy at the race track on vacation, and put up a couple of posts in my consolidated WIP.  But since there is quite a bit still to go on him, I figured I'd start a new separate WIP for him (<Grampa  Simpson> as was the style at the time <\ Grampa Simpson>).


So here are pics of the initial base coat:





And then after a heavy wash:




That gets us caught up to the old WIP.

Since then, the little time I've had (had to do my physio appointments over lunch for two weeks) I've been highlighting his skin.  It takes a LOT longer to do on something this size then a normal sized fig.....




This was after one day.



And this:



Was after today.


I think the skin is close now.  I see a couple little spots I should fix up.  Feel free to point out anything that doesn't look right with the skin highlights.


Just realized I could enter him in the Giants contest (he's big enough, right?).  Hmmm, guess I should think about a nice base.....

Finally got a chance to paint today.








Did  quick highlight on the hands around his neck. Touched up the shading on the barrel and rope.  Changed his belt to Walnut Brown.  Did some work on the fish, how do they look?

And started on the metals.  Need to remember to take in some rusty colours tomorrow...


One more day to do the clubs and finish up the metals and he should be good to come home for basing.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      I had a burst of mini painting and finished a bunch of minis this month - my first time painting I think since December 2020?
      Terraincrate (WIP)
      Crystal Peaks Campsite

      Peaceful Park

      Monster (WIP)

      Bones Pygmy Mammoth (WIP) with toddler

      Nolzurs Treant (WIP)

      Bones graveyard terrain (WIP)

      Bones High Rollers (WIP)

      Not all of these have been sealed, some have not had matte coats yet.
      The "fire" from the Crystal Peaks set got lost during priming.
      Links to come when not in my phone. Surprised myself with this.
