Did you hear that?
That, I just heard it again. Didn't you?
No, I didn't hear a th.. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....... Wait, yes I think I did.
Er, has any one got any rations left?.....
Theres a good boy, sit, siiiiiiiiiiiiit.
This was a very fun group to paint. They also went very fast. I finished them in January, but just got around to photographing them.
I can't pick a favorite, they all have so much personality. I tried some OSL on the fire elemental's base.
The camera settings were changed on the solo shots of the air elemental to tone down the white from overpowering.
It ended up kind of dark.
Here is a water elemental I finished a while back.
Some of the pics look a little darker, as I messed with the gamma on the camera to try to prevent the white washing everything out.
This is an oldie-but-goodie, with a sculpt that has a lot of character in the "face."
I wanted it to look like it was coming up out of the water at the beach, so I made the base simple like beach sand.
C&C Welcome, as always.
Here's another bit of ordnance - a WW II Japanese Type 97 Shinhoto Chi Ha Tank from Tamiya. 1/35 scale, all plastic, with flexible tracks. The kit dates back to the 80s. Fairly easy cleanup and assembly. Paashe VL airbrush and Tester's Model Master, et al, paints. Colored pencils for the paint chips, scratches, abrasions, etc. Reaper acrylics for the various oil, gas, dirt, and dust stains. Finished off with chalk pastels (old school). The base is a cutup, sanded, and stained oak plank from Home Depot. Name plate from a local trophy shop.
Now everyone can join in the fun in RC's Ordnance Category.
Qs and Cs welcomed.

I was painting Kieran Tallowmire. I was quite apprehensive as I found that miniature to be quite daunting will all the detail (books, candle, familiar on shoulder ...). I first wanted him to be different ... so no grey robes, no blue robes ... I went for green, which totally did not work out. So he ended up with blue robes (was the easiest way to salvage the wreck that "dark green" had done).
Of course, the way he is holding the book and his hand, he is conjuring something, but if green had worked, I would not have had an idea what - a plant maybe? Blue robes - water mage, water elemental. So I remembered that somewhere in my stash of 3D print files, where was a baptismal font, which looked like it could be used with Kieran.
The next idea was to get some water sprite / elemental that was conjured out of the font ... and with a 3D file you can scale and reduce the size, so that is what I did with a water elemental / Water snake I had.
A couple of mishaps later (me using liquid water for the first time, for example, and discovering that my version dissolves normal plastic glue) ... this is the result: I really think I had some good ideas, I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with my execution - but as I usually strive for table-top quality, I think it's ok.
The base is resin by Fenryll ... Thinking about using red on the runes outside the pentagram ... or do the blue, too? Or just leave them as they are?
