And what the heck, as long as I'm gushing on about how nice this is, just want to point out that this is a beautiful example of an older miniature (old school if you will) being very nicely painted.  I know there's just tons of people with old stuff hanging around in their houses/basements/dungeons/closets, you should take a break from all your new fangled Bones minis (even though they are very nice in their own right) and spend a number of hours relaxing whilst painting some beautiful, old figure from yesteryear. 

 

Okay, getting off my soap box, stopped flogging my dead horse....

...you totally freehanded that Eye of Horus on the shield to mock everyone who has trouble painting eyes, didn't you. :lol:

 

Nooooooo, never.  The thought didn't even cross my mind... :devil:

 

Wow, this one is just beautiful, I love the skin tone and the gold on the shield came out really nicely.  I painted this one a long time ago, but way before I started using Reaper paints and basing miniatures.

And I should probably mention too I love her helmet and spear head!

:lol:  It's been awhile since I was triple posted.  Yes, there are some nice old minis out there.  Some of them are inexpensive as well.

 

Nice work. Keep showing the classics please.

 

I'm feeling left out of the DSM WIP thread so I've opened one of the packs to play along.  I'll still be coming back to these from time to time and plan to finish the entire set this year.

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and myself[John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
      One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
      Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. 
       
      Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
       
      Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
