Ok, I was super Happy I got my order from Red Box Games so I could possible get it painted up for RCon. Then in my haste to get started with this figure I tried to clip off the tab.  I say 'tried' because I accidentily clipped the front of her dress. :grr:  (Sorry Tre`)  So I then tried to use some ?grey stuff? to fix my mistake.  Here is the result.

Although I haven't done it recently, I've managed more than a few unintentional mutilations myself over the years. It's one of those things that happens. The funny part about it is that the repaired pieces tend to become special; it might be because you have top put a little of yourself into the miniature to make it whole again. All that aside, she looks just FINE after your loving attention. Have FUN with prodigal mini!

Unfortunately, I noticed some small mold lines I need to clean up after I put down my first primer coat., I decided to go with sealer surgery to fix, so I will have to wait to get started.

Go Silvervane !

It's the mistakes that make you a better painter, and miniaturist if you haven't noticed.

I get SOOOOOOOOOOO angry when I screw up, and then I look back at all that work and say

Wow.. that looks better than I planned !

 

Have fun, and make sure that when you fall into a pond of manure, you pick up the gold watch at the bottom !

Thanks Jasonator.  I finished up priming her just never took a photo of the end result.  One of the classes at RCon I have in my schedule is sculpting textures.  This is just a little pre-RCon practice. :unsure:

 

Oh and here is the photo of her primed and ready to get started.  It's really fuzzy, but it was a quick photo to remind me to get started.

So after posting I decided it was time to get this one started as well.  So I work on her a bit.  Then I took a picture of her progress.  Here is an example of why I need to Photo the eyes before I highlight and shadow the skin.  I thought it looked great in hand.  But up close and personal I think the her left eye need some slight correction.  As well, many have bemoaned how harsh the camera is.

You are your WORST critic !

Paint the miniature, and then as you go along adjust the painting.

You may find out that you did it right, when you get the other components painted.

(just a suggestion, cause goodnees knows I make enough mistakes to know that I should

correct when the time comes, not before).

 

:bday:

Back to Hjordisa.  I have an idea for her base, I hope to finish her off before RCon, but I'm ok if I don't.  With that in mind I have blue in both the other figures I'm working on so I decided to go green and yellow.  I also tried an color experiment with the black top.  I mixed the green with some dark red and a touch of blue.  Thought I came out ok for a non-black black.

 

Here is her progress.

      This is a Dwarf Lord Ragmir by Scibor monstrous miniatures, I got this for my nephew awhile back and just finished it. This thing had a lot of good details, and a cool base even if it was a little small, which is no longer an issue since I just mounted him on his stock base and then a metal knockout from an electrical box. 




       
      Thanks for looking!

      This lil guy had been sitting on my shelf for a while. Decided to tint some metallic w blue paint for his armor. Pretty happy how it turned out. As always, feedback is welcome

      So, I just had to show off this pic.  I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters.  I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game.  
       
      In order from left to right:
      Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric.
      Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian.
      Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main).
       
      Sorry, I just really loved this picture.

      I liked painting the dark skin of this one, as opposed to the lighter skinned dwarves I've been doing.  I enjoyed this one a lot!  It'll finish out my trio of dwarves for the current campaign I'm in.

      Meh, needed a cleric for my party.  Seemed a decent fit.
