So very much work to be done...I hate WIP stuff...

Alright friends! Off to bed for me seeing as how I have critically ill patients for whom to care in the morning. A parting pic of the continued effort on Betty.    Will work on a quick blend before

Some more progress on detailing Betty tonight by shading her metal darker with Dark Elf Skin glazes and other little touches here and there.    Used Muddy Brown to start picking out elements of Reyv

Been painting up my Ullr, along with some other minis. It's disappointing in the grand scheme, of course, but magnificently fun for me all the same.

 

What's the thing under his fur skirt wrap thingie what'sit? I decided it was going to be a skin, like the skin-skin, of an animal. Or something. On mine. Honestly no idea what it actually is.

 

He's still so gorgeous, though.

Tradkarl! Work on that instead of Urrl. :P

 

Why? 

 

You got a color scheme in mind for me to do?  :huh:

 

Oh, no scheme at all, he's my favorite of the batch and just want to see how others are painting him. Since I didn't pledge in, I'm going to live vicariously through other people for the time being. ^__^

Sheesh, guy takes a day off to see his team lose in tragic fashion in the Superbowl and the thread drops to the second page. Some group WIP  :upside:

 

Just riffin' 

 

Here is my latest progress. I did shading and reclaiming highlights on Meghan's armor, and Ullir's hammer, and torcs. Spotted some spots where  I need to bring back his skin level because my shading got a little sloppy. The important thing, no metal flakes where they aren't supposed to be (except one of Meghan's bags). Also I just realized I need to paint Ullir's nipples. 

 

Thanks for looking!

But someone needs to GS him a shirt - poor dude is freeezing, judging by his nipple...... :blink:

Ok so I'm down to the part where I focus in on each figure individually and decide to enhance details, make the figure take on it's unique persona and place in this diorama. Ironically...I'm starting with Betty tonight.

 

Betty is amazing and is possibly my favorite female miniature ever produced.

Progress on Betty as promised.

 

Various elements of leather worked; gloves, leggings, shoes, pouches, shield straps, chest strap, belt, neck, etc. 

 

I'm not sure how light or dark I want the padded leather armor to be, but it's going to definitely pull red to complement the green of her skin. Aspects of certain larger leather surfaces already do so. 

 

Definitely going to bring her metal darker and more 'unpolished'. I wanted leather elements to appear well worn as though she's a rough and tumble adventurer more concerned about function over appearance.

 

EDIT: This is probably the "best"/"most thorough" WIP you'll ever get from me....

Your style of painting seems really interesting and produces some pretty cool looking miniatures. It would be cool to see a more thorough WIP.

 

I finally got my secret weapon order in and I quickly got to work. The orc has been waiting for a cool base for a while. Ullr and the Orc both got cool swamp bases, the dwarf is going to get a neato snowy mountain base, and I'm still trying to figure out if I want to base Meghan on a 30mm base, or a bigger display style base.

 

Decisions!

Magda was by far and away a figure that made me lose my mind and absolutely 'have' to have. But I have to say that Betty and Meghan may be my favorite female figures ever produced.

  

OH yes Meghan is amazing as well, I'm not a bit sad about having her. :-)

 

Great work there ungoreatstefan!

Thanks!

 

I've got lots more I want to do with these two bases, and then put realistic water onto the bases, which should cover up the gap between the orc's feet and the ground, or make it less noticeable I hope.

 

I think that I will be going with a larger base to get more scenic with Meghan since I also find it to be one of my favorite models. It might also be a swamp, but with some broken Doric columns that Meghan is using for cover.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      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.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
