Congrats on the win he looks great. For such a tiny mini you painted him with loads of character. I love the scene you set with his base. What did you use for the fern?

With a mustache like that, how could he lose?  Great scene and very nicely painted mini - highlights on individual strands of hair is really a crazy level of attention to detail - a well deserved victory!

Thanks everyone!

 

What did you use for the fern?

I got ferns that are made for model trains. The large one is plastic while the small ones are kind of like fabric. I repainted them as the plastic was a brighter green and really looked fake. Below is a picture of the large ones. I do not remember the website I got them from but I believe Scenery Express sells them.

A well deserved win.

 

Nice mini and nice base.

 

Thank you!

 

 

 

I feel I should note something about the base. The basing for this guy is what actually won him the Best in Show. In this competition the basing of a piece is not a primary consideration for judging but can contribute to the overall ranking. When it came down to choosing Best in Show, it was between him and a very well done dragon. Unfortunately the dragon's base was not painted up to the same standard that the dragon itself was, some portions of it were unfinished and just painted black. So if you are going to enter any painting competitions, give the basing the same effort that you did the paint job.

Especially if Proctor is judging!

No problem, I just wish I could remember where I ordered them from. Unfortunately I got them months ago and this was my first opportunity to use them. I really like that they are on a wire which allowed me to stick them in a cork to paint.

      Everyone was so nice when I posted my hellhounds so I feel confident enough to post this guy.

      I figured it was time to work on some Elves.  They're definitely the smallest part of my painted collection.

      The first batch is all from Reaper Miniatures.  

      These are the metal ones:


       

       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       

       
       
      The Drow who snuck in (from the box of Goodwill, no less)



      More from Reaper, but this time in Bones:


       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       


      And the others.  Mostly Stonehaven

      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.

      Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe.
      I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS.
       
      Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017
      Sculpted by ??
      Bonesium PVC.
      30mm round lipped base
      should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
       

      Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister?
       
      I have cut off the integral bases,  as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.

      Here is my Knight Templar.  This is the first model I painted after about 5 years of not painting any miniatures.
