Very nice sir! The only thing I'd like to see is some darkening of the 'tusks' either near where they emerge from his head or toward the tips to give some depth.

I'm not sure what they/it is anyhow so let your imagination run wild.

it's supposed to be a knock off of edgar rice burroughs green men of mars from the john carter books. They are wild, communial tribal aliens. Yes, those white chuncks near the face are indeed tusks. I see the mini is also dressed in theteaditional garb of mars... Nothing at all! Thats right martian natives wear little to nothing at all. I tried to convince reaper to make their own "not john carter of mars" minis, but they said they were unable due disney's copyright laws. I laughed inspite of all the not dnd minis they make.

 

Hey Reaper, I'd love to see your take on some not john carter minis! :)

Thanks Everyone.

This was so much fun to paint.

I will be prepping a couple of miniature for a few days, while I await a new delivery of flesh colors from Vallejo.

I don't see any Meirer sculpts in my queue for at least a month or more.

Going to learn how to use all those silly files I got.

Things you enjoy generally turn out better than those you don't...at least that's my experience. The Big Green Guy LOOKS like you had a SPLENDID time painting him up. GREAT WORK!

By the way, Bronze Age Miniatures has a bunch of minis in their SciFi range that would compliment that one very nicely.

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?
