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!

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).

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.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend
      As mentioned in the Work In Progress, this is a character of mine from an existing campaign.  The character has died once and was raised from the dead suffering a drop in his already low Charisma score as a result.  His caved-in skull didn't heal properly and the concussion and time in limbo have left him "off" personality wise.
      So, with damaged head and tattoos adorning his arms and the opposite side of his skull, I present the embodiment of his family surname, Tor Skullcrusher. 




      These were taken with a single strip light source so I may come back to this and take some more pics with two background lights.
      As always, feel free to leave notes and praise as warranted.  
      Thanks for looking.
      Enjoy and Stay safe.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Thrym Project  :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend.
      Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk.  As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere.

      I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far.  I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis.
      Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull.  An ironic happenstance, given the character's name.
      Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club.  This is not something unusual so far.  The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby.  Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness.  He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin.

      So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead.  His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse.
      I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better.  The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel.  I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig.
      For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin.  The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash.  I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well.  The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again.


      For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof.  The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head.
      His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it.
      Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit.  I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. 
      More work to come soon.
      Stay Tuned and Safe.  Enjoy.

      Painted a bunch of Lannisters this week including both soldiers and charactera. Tyrion's sculpt has surprisingly great face and was interesting to paint overall :)

      An older miniature I started years ago, but finished recently. I think it was mostly the weapons (shading) and dirty shirt missing. I would say the paint job is average, but I do like the miniature.
      I decided to go for a simple, but interesting base, featuring a Nolzur's bottle and Thomarillion barrel.
