It's astounding! You leveled up on this wondrous piece for sure. Love it!


Very happy to have helped provide some info to you and that you got all the figures you needed. I knew that you'd put 110% into the piece after our little chat too.

My only critique, being something of a theatre person and familiar with lights - Spotlights, particularly with colored filters in them, tend to wash out both shadows and highlights where they hit, but make the shadows look darker where they don't... (This is why you generally have several lights pointed at the same area from different directions during a show - not unlike photographing a mini, really.) For example, in your piece, the light from the overhead spot(s) isn't going to be hitting directly under their armpits or directly under the brim of his hat. The few tiny areas where even the reflected light isn't hitting should go all the way down to straight black.

Other than that, damn good job on the monochrome.

It's too bad you had a deadline on this - the band would have looked amazing with a similar low level of lighting and an individual spotlight on each band member...


So, did you have as much fun as I did trying to get that damn snake off his arm? lol :rolleyes:

(At least you got to just chop off the cane.)

I did a similar conversion of him for the special challenge part of the  March Resolutionary Painting Challenge, although I didn't finish him in time... I hacked off the snake and the beads on the other arm and whittled his cane down into a shillelagh, then greenstuffed over the chain at his waist into a holster strap and added a holstered gun and a shamrock-shaped badge to be an LEP inspector, painted pretty much all in subdued shades of green.

      First diorama I've done since I've been I was ill this winter.  Although I have been doing a lot of reminiscing and wishing, which is what this piece is about.  I have at least one  of all the Burrows & Badgers range from Oathsworn and one of the parts I like is thst ao many or their miniatures can be used for non-dnd or domestic scenes.
      I also finally found a use for the stable piece from the Reaper nativity scene.  I built an actual stable for that sp I had thst bit left over and it worked pretty well here.
      I could explain it but I'm hoping the piece speaks for itself.  Hope you.all enjoy

      I find tje affect the best when staring through the portal...

      This was a nightmarish project that I shelved for years after I had first put her together. Being metal I didn't want to try and attach the wings after it was painted so assembled all the parts of the dragon together. I wanted a blue dragon and first went with Prussian Blue, huge mistake as it looked awful and trying to paint that heavy thing in hand was a...     ...so it got shelved until now. It's my second dragon of any size (painted baby dragon as PC followers). but basically really my first as the other dragon I painted was the Asgard Dragon (twice the size of this weighting over 2 lbs. of lead) in the 80's done in metalic's where I hadn't any idea what I was doing, later striped and sold the model.

      She was in one of my WIP threads where I wanted to see how dark armor would look for 3000 Kyra and Lavarath. Since I finally finished that nightmarish project thgought I'd finish her up and use as Kyra on foot.

      I think the warlord line has some of the best dragonborn or dragon-men. The funny thing, yes a loose mini bin story, when painting him couldn't figure out what that thing was on his weapon was and painted it like a magical flame. Well after finishing him went on the reaper site to look him up and discovered the weapon had twisted itself around and it was just fur/feathers/etc hanging from the weapon not shooting up. Now afraid I'd probably snap it trying to twist it around with my luck, Nah if I twist it around I'd have the weapon to paint all over again lol.

      Well for a troll slayer she sure was a skinny dainty figure to paint.
