I'm technically sneaking ahead a bit, but I'm going to start painting one of the Hearthstone Redcaps really soon (the guy on the left with the sword).
He broke in two pieces right at the knees (end of tunic), and instead of trying to glue him back together, I decided to try a water effects base.
 
[PLACEHOLDER for photo]
 
I've started on the base today, because I had some painting time for the first time in forever (I also did some other basing stuff that I'll post elsewhere in show-off when done. This weekend probably).
 
I decided to try my heavy body gel from Liquitex as my water effect.Because I wanted this too look kinda swampy, I decided to originally paint the base an olive colour.

I then went over it with some medium, and a mix of that olive, and some inks (1:1:1:1): phthalo green (yellow) and burnt umber. It's quite a nice colour, actually. I'll probably re-use it.
Then when that dried, I put some heavy body gel medium on top and tried to create the sense of movement .

It should keep some ridges that I can then paint faintly to suggest the ripples created by the redcap wading in the water. It's only been an hour, so you get an in-process drying photo, which shows a bit of the green underneath. I think it gives a good idea of what it will look like, and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. Pretty easy so far. We'll see how it looks at the end.

Looks like I forgot to take a pic of the post olive mix, but it didn't change the colour too much.

I'm a little disturbed by the number of these cut off at the knees. I may need to wrap that one individually

He breaks off almost exactly at the bottom of his kilt.

 

 

Sometimes that happens when I pull him from the mold so I'm not surprised that he would break there if he broke.

Oh, I've no problem with resin. I just like to be sure before I plan any orders.

 

And I thought all your things were resin, but didn't know for sure. Also, if I haven't already mentioned it somewhere, I'm so glad you picked these guys up from Andy. They were one of my favorite things I saw at Reapercon.

      Some of the figures are borderline NSFW so i won't copy any pictures here.
       
      Looks lovely, but even if I wasn't unemployed, these are a bit rich for my blood.  With shipping you're looking at ~$76 for a single bust - ouch...

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

       The unique miniature as a gift to all who back us in the first 12 hours once the campaign is live! (Starter Box+)
      It's time to add a new page to the Signum chronicle!
      Meet the Scarlet Forest Clan - a brand new faction for the skirmish wargame with miniatures "Legends for Signum".
      The Cataclysm hit the Eastern islands really hard. After earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis, which enough shocked the island inhabitants, bunches of muggers from the continent struck the lands. As a result of this terrifying period, the Shogun power has been weakened, and the clans themselves started internecine wars.
      But some looked beyond their own ambitions. Being a wise, standing out race, Kitsune have always considered themselves the chosen of the gods and the keepers of ancient knowledge. The sorceress princess, the new chosen one of the goddess Amaterasu is now willing to reunite the country again, calm the nature spirits, and fight back greedy foreigners. Every day more and more warriors, inspired by her message, decide to join the side of Princess Fumiko and the whole world will feel the power of swords and the secret magic of Kitsune very soon.
      Go ahead and join the battle thus creating your own legend in "Legends of Signum".
      We introduce a completely new side in the never-ending series of fantasy conflicts of the Signum World. The starter set "Kitsune Clan of the Scarlet Forest" includes 4 highly detailed resin miniatures of characters plus a set of support cards and game components - everything you need to immerse in the fantasy clash in the skirmish wargame "Legends of Signum".

      Story
      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Story
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      Sun
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      Moon
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.
