well I finally worked up the nerve to paint one of my cuter sets. These have been waiting with primer on them for a Loooong time. It took a great deal of effort to put brush to mini on these because i want them to come out right. eventually they will be incorporated into a base with holes for them to set in, I just haven't given a long enough thought to what it will be. I am considering a forest seen with the Dragon Elder from Ral Partha but I haven't decided yet.
I did decide that Frummity looked better as a red squirrel than Lemur so Squirrel it is!
I hope everyone enjoys these!
This fun little guy is from Bombshell's Kritterkin line and is the first one of them that I have painted. I started him at our paint group last Saturday and finished him up over last few days. I wanted to go for more of a pirate type look than naval officer so I decided to play around with textured leather. It was a challenge keeping all the brown from not looking the same but I am happy with how he turned out.
It all started with a D&D group forming. That's when I started up the painting minis in June. And having trouble finding figures that we felt represented our characters, I opted to have some fun and use some anthropomorphic Dark Sword critters. Plus, I admit I was a little scared of doing human faces on my first go.
What they represent in our game, from left to right -
A Half Elf warlock, a Goliath warrior, an Elf swashbuckler, and a Dragonkin cleric of Talos.
And the badger's weapon is a conversion because the original mace head broke off and my friend's character carried a glaive. I bought one of the Reaper weapon packs and used a piece from that for the conversion. I also got a surprise and found that I had already bought the badger a long time ago, so I had two! So I painted both up and call them "The Brothers".
I love their furry cloaks.
Last Decemeber while I was Xmas shopping for the pets, I ran across an AKC chew toy platypus...
And, Being me, I knew that it was a DrowcedentTM in the making....
So my daughter Alsnia, knitted the scarf, we mad the hat from blue insulation foam and putty, and I did the monocle from a split ring for keys, a piece of jewelry chain, and some blister plastic.
I sewed everything in place, (Be careful of the stitching!!!! as I am out of practice...) and hot glued the hat on...
And it was delivered today, and I just got a pm from pcktlnt, so I can show him off now!
We need to have a gathering of plushies at Reapercon this year....
