One inch!?!?!

 

Ma'am, I'm going to go find a hat to wear so I can tip it to you.

 

I thought that was a lovely little diorama when I saw it, but I didn't realize just how minuscule it was. That's something of a tour-de-force.

 

I'm glad you've found your joy in painting, too. Fantasy isn't it for everyone.

You have a WONDERFUL flair for Retro Sci Fi. The composition of the piece, the color selection, AND your brushwork are OUTSTANDING & IMAGINATIVE! VERY WELL DONE!

It only took me two years to find out what I really like. Now I've got to figure out what to do with all these fantasy figures I've got.

 

 

Beautiful! Full of that 1950's B movie vive crossed with comic book charm. I love it.

 

I love all those old films and I've just gotten into reading the old Pulps. The covers on those mags are unbelievable.

 

 

I love the brainsquid.

 

He's really cool. I've got a slime alien with a giant eye too. Small like this one.

Thank you Limey. I just got my Counterblast KS in and I'm going to use yellow as my unifying colour.

These figures are tiny, but they have a lot of detail on them. Really they were an easy and quick paint job and the base doesn't consist of much. Just a bit of ballast, rocks and some tufts.  Than you Pingo!

I just love painting this stuff and am having a hard time tearing myself away from the painting table. I'm almost done with my Mekku and am starting a bot tonight! Thank you luv :0)

I'd love to trade you for the fantasy figs, but given time you may find a renewed interest in them as well.

I'd never get rid of all of them. I did offer to trade a Privateer Press Warpwolf and the Clockwork Angels for just one spaceship. So that would be trading 60 bucks worth of stuff for an 18 buck ship. No takers. I almost cried on that day :0)

I don't know that I'll ever go to any Con's. As awkward and socially inept as I am online, imagine how bad I'd be in real life. It would be a travesty I tell you, a travesty :0)

Anne, I'd be happy to be your ReaperCon buddy who does all the talking and protects you from too much social interaction. I'm a critical care nurse and social butterfly; I can't get enough attention. It'd be a perfect team!!

Thank you so much Adrift. After exposure to me, it would be other people that might need Critical Care :)

 

That looks great.  Exactly what those minis wanted.

 

And I know plenty of socially awkward people who go to conventions.  You'd be fine.

 

Thank you so much for the compliment. It means a great deal to me.

 

Most people on here seem so self-assured and confident, I didn't realize they might be shy too. I can't imagine myself even speaking out loud or looking up from the floor and making eye contact.

      The idea was to build a little diorama with the header "Make peace, not war"
       
      I called the result "Flower Power". I think the mage is from Reaper, but I'm not sure. The orc and the wraith are both from an really old range from GW. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

      Hello everyone! Major post today, I completed the Cat Critters display base. I went for a simple arrangement this time. It’s a thematic chest-like display board. I opted for a Roman style setup; mosaic pavement tiling, marble pillars and royal purple flowers.
       
      It was interesting to work with different product from many companies on this project. The CatCritters are from Darksword Miniatures, they were all sculpted by talented David Summers.
       
      Here’s for the technical information; The marble lions are from Reaper Miniatures, 77341 and were Sculpted by Geoff Valley. The pillars are from Wizkids. I made the pavement texture using a Green Stuff World rolling pin. The background wall was made with a Town Square from Tabletop World. The cavalry base I mounted the lion statues on are from Games Workshop. The synthetic grass and tuft are from the Army Painter, Woodland Scenics and Green Stuff World. Lastly, I made the vine-like tree with real roots. To build the board I also used a pine plank, Masonite hard board, Milliput, Jovi Plastilina, Green Stuff natural stones and sand. To paint the models and the display base I used Reaper Miniatures MSP paint and Citadel inks.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Each model was mounted on a 50mm base.

      We are going to visit my BILs home next week so I wanted to make something to thank them.  Fortunately his wife adores penguins so an idea was born.  
       
      On the ice flows of the Antarctic the penguins fight a constant war of survival.  But when things look grim and the darkest night seems to turn against them one penguin will rise above the others to smite their foes and have the way through the darkness.  
       
      When she appears the others are driven to seek out the ancient battle gear, the location passed down by generations of penguins and like drones they come to anoint their emperor and dress him to do battle with his foes...
       

       

       

      On a side note, the bonsium in bones 4 is much harder to cut and I am afraid I made a rather large offering to the blood god of miniatures. Fortunately I didn't nick any of the working bits.  Unfortunately it was close and I am going to feel it in the morning.

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.

      Here my version of the "Dance of death" from Reaper Bones IV. 
      I'm still very hesitant to show it off because till the last second I was really insecure about the outcome. 
      First of all, the palette: right now I kinda like it, but I'm not 100% sure about 1. the base and 2. the color of the lower dragon. My first idea was to paint it white, and make it reminiscent of a battle between England's white dragon and Wales red dragon. But to paint white is always a challenge and given I'm not that familiar with the material, I decided to go with the other hard color to paint. 
      Now it just depicts a fictional encounter between two forgotten realms dragons: Tchazzar, infamous red wyrm, and Mergandevindasander, rumoured to have lavender eyes. 
      And secondly, I think I'll never fully appreciate bones... I like the fact that it's cheap, but the texture is just not the same and there's something very off on its maleability. It always makes me get tired of painting it and abandon ship without giving as much attention to details as I usually do.
      IMO those two dragons are pretty nice, and if I had to object to something, it will be about their tails, a bit too plain and simple. 
      Any feedback incredibly welcome ^^ 
      And if you have instagram and want to follow my gallery there... even more grateful: it's @albertnyarla
