I'm not to sure how I happened to do this.. but somehow; I have been chipping at this miniature

off and on, all day.  I put down my brush and said.. OMG.. I'm DONE...

Have to figure out if I am going to do a base, or just accept that muddy base it came with.

I am trying to only do custom bases on Unique things, as I can't use them in Diorama's if I go with all

those custom bases. 


So here is the Horde Warrior.

He has purple eyes, with hot pink pupils.  LOL

I'd spruce up the base (of course). Maybe try out some of the water effects I sent your way, make little muddy or bloody pool near him?

ETA: Also, if you have some bones figures, you can use them as basing bits since they are easy to cut up. Do quick speed-paints of some body parts or whatever and attach to his base.

ROFL...You know Ub3r...

How do you do that.

I was sitting at my desk looking at base going.. hmmm....Water effects with muddy and green water, with maybe mold growing in it, all around their base ???

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... and there you go reading my mind !!!!  LOL

Nice call...

I'll probably do that.

Love that you did something so different, Jay! He's turned out great and I can't wait to see these basing plans come to life!

Thanks Guindyloo !

I'll probably base him over the weekend, and post in show offs on Monday.

This was such a surprise, since I constrain myself doing the TBM miniatures with Heraldry Rules.

Since I actually have a real coat of arms, I'm a bit retentive about such things.

This mini was totally liberating, no rules, just hey!  Lets Play !

I loved it once I could pop those muscles !

Thanks for your comment !

Thanks Corporea !

Will start working on basing a little bit later today.

This is such a fun sculpt to paint (and it has a few very very good challenges to it).

Basing is Underway.

I thought I would post the first thing I did this morning when I got up.

Setting him up to be attached to the base, and seeing what I can do with him.

Here is my basing Prep.

I'll wait until tomorrow to drop him in the Show Off Forum.

(I should be done by then).

Wow! Nice to see you doings something completely different, even if I did miss most of the "in progress" part of it.

Thanks LittleBluberry !

This has been SO MUCH FUN to paint.

NO Rules, Nothing that says I have to use certain colors.

I have had a Raving Party doing this.

Its complex, but logical. 

I have the Miniature done now, just waiting for tomorrow to post.

I should have done one of these a long time ago (though I will still do some more Meirer sculpts of 25mm).

They keep me learning brush control !

      I had a metal mr. Grimm sitting around, so I figured better paint it before the bones version shows up. 
      So cold mr. Grimm

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"
