I love the entire piece. The base is perfect and fits great with his display base. I love how you painted everything the mini the roof and all. I am sure Ub3r will love it and display it proudly.

All your nice comments bring smiles to my face, thanks! 

 

I must admit I am very proud of high nice the blends show up even in closeup, and cellphone pics. I felt I leveled up big on this one.

Wow, that is an amazing base!  :wow:  That it separates into a smaller base for game play is phenomenal! 

 

The detail on the rogue himself is also impressive, the tattoos, the detail on the quiver, the custom weapons, it's all just so well done.  If Ub3r doesn't love this then he's insane!!

My precioussssssss!

 

I love it, was very impressed when Willen presented it to me during his trip to Vegas.

 

It looks great in these pics, but so much better IRL!

 

Thanks again, my friend!

I'm banging my head against the wall trying to come up with a rooftop scene and Willen knocks one out of the park.

 

Awesome work!

Wow! Wow, wow, wow! Excuse me while I go pick my jaw up off the floor. That is some beautiful execution of a really cool idea. It may not have turned out as planned, Willem, but you really knocked it out of the park with this one.

I don't want to mention, but I have had that jumping assassin for 2 years now, it was one of my earliest purchases, and started a vignette with him jumping out of a window, breaking glass, about the time I did the big Dragon Diorama for the contest. It never got finished mainly because I left it for my wife to do it, and she never really got into painting. But, I mean, I have already pondered a vertical dio and have ideas. So if you want to bounce ideas off each other, don't hesitate to drop me a PM.

      This was one of my diorama entries for ReaperCon featuring miniatures from Dark Sword Miniatures. I had diorama ideas centered around the female figure occupying my mind for a while before I settled on this one. I tried a few other figures with her but nothing fit until I got the male figure and then added the wolf. I am very happy with how it came together and was very pleased that it received a Gold medal in the Diorama Category. I also was honored to receive second place diorama from Dark Sword.

      Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature.
       
      Find the WIP ->here<-
       
      I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes.
       
      I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me.
       
      As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s.
       
       
      The Light Fantastic
      She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened.
      After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence.
      Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened.
      Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world.
      "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there."
      She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest.
      Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence.
      It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians".
      Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates.
      All in the name of nature.
      But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers.
      "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked.
      She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission.
      She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy.
      Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision.
      Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded.
      "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..."
      A hollow bang cut off his last words.
      Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke.
      "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up.
      The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away.
      "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?"
      "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?"
      "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium."
      "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully.
      "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales."
      The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief.
      A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain.
      A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path.
      The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates.
      "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat."
      The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish."

      My second ReaperCon diorama started as an idea of having Jason Wiebe's Tiger Lily Mage holding a stop sign. When I started looking through the rest of the Dark Sword Miniatures Critter Kingdoms line, I quickly realized that there was potential to build a multitude of scenes. I planned out a simple story: Tiger Lily stops traffic, which would be another animal of some kind, and another animal crosses the street. The Squirrel on a Turtle was perfectly awesome for the traffic, and the Pretty Princess cat noble was great for the pedestrian. I also had a bunch of resin groceries and dressing that I wanted to use, and the Hedgehog Bard made for a great half-oblivious grocer. Oh, and the streets on the sign are named after Mr. Wiebe's other dogs.
       
      This diorama won 2nd Place overall Critter Kingdom Anthropomorphic Animals award, which came with a pretty great store credit prize at Dark Sword. I was honestly so blown away that it was chosen, I barely remember walking up to accept the award, lol.

      We're starting a new 5th Ed D&D campaign in a couple weeks.  I decided I might play a rogue, so I wandered down to the LFGS at lunch and looked at what was there (because I obviously have NO miniatures already I could use).
      Spotted the Tabaxi Rogue female pack from WizKids (I like the sculpts and poses of the female figs more than the male ones) so that's going to be my next character.

      Cool fig, primer isn't too bad.  Some nasty mold lines but I only have a week to paint this so I'm not messing with them.  Maybe after I'll clean up the "advanced" version and do a better job on her.
       
      And after some time fiddling with colours.

       
      Well, that looks a mess.  Just figuring out colours.
      Skin base is MSP Alien Flesh.  Cloth is MSPB Succubus Kiss. Had AV Model Air Black handy so used that to start base coating metals.  And leather is MSP Leather Brown.  Still not sure on the leather but I'll give it some time to think about it and maybe try a wash on it.

      So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. 
       
      So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? 
      Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? 
       
      Any and all thoughts welcome!
