Spring Exchange - Wood Elf King (02934)

Recommended Posts

I painted this mini for Kharsin for the Spring Exchange.

 

The druid's falcon reported something strange in the woods. When he went to check, he found a small kitty who started purring at him.

 

I forgot to take a shot from above to show the kitty. The kitty is one of Edna's (50235). This is probably the 3rd or 4th base I've done. I'm actually happy with it, unlike my other attempts. The top stone is the base the elf comes with. I used cork to give him some height. The moss was done using blister-foam. Grass is from Army painter. The base itself is the new Reaper 1" ones.

 Nice. Interesting to see him with bright colors for once - I personally painted mine like an old-school Tolkien illustration in darker browns and greens with a coppery metal meant to be ancient bronze so old it had verdigris on it. (I also gave mine a beard.)

Did you pin the hand with the bird on it? I had the hardest time trying to line it up right... (Of course, it was the first thing I'd ever tried pinning way back then, and didn't have an appropriate drill bit or pin vise.)

I love the angle you have it at - the bird looks like he's right in the middle of swooping in and landing. Love the colors on the bird as well - gives it a very magical look like it's some kind of spirit totem instead of a regular bird.

This really is a beautiful piece and fits right in with all of the others in our display case. I love the cat as well as we're a cat family :) Thank you so much for this Fire Elemental! The King and his Critters have a happy place in our home! I'll try to get a top down shot once I blaze through everything else for ReaperCon and get to the pics part. I've got a very busy schedule that has no sign of letting up lately... Until the Con.... LOL!

Thanks!

 

I glued and primed him over a year ago, so I don't remember if I pinned his arm, but I suspect I didn't, since I would have the same problem even with proper tools and probably remember it.

I'm glad you like it! No hurry on pics. And if you forget, not a big deal. Good luck on your ReaperCon entry!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 77452 Invisible Ranger I painted last night. I'll be using this translucent model as a marker whenever I make a hide check.
      The other model is the metal version of 02909 Nienna, Elf Ranger sculpted by Werner Klocke. The character I'm playing is a multiclass; ranger, rogue, sorceress.
      I painted the base with Reaper MSP paint and used only inks on the model itself. More pictures of my painted version of 02909, Nienna the elf ranger.

      I don't really like this sculpt, they've cut corners too much for my taste, but as I painted Drizzt it grew on me. Has some kind of charm and I like it now  hope you will too!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a lovely nymph I just completed. I started the skin with a beige base coat and green shadows. Then glazed successive layers of green and beige.
      This Dark Heaven Legends model 02741, Nymph sculpted by Werner Klocke and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      We needed a vulture for Rangres shadowdeep and I remembered I had a toy eagle. I was surprised by the level of detail on it and I like how it turned out.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of 02811, Dain Deepaxe. This one took me a little longer to finish. There is so many details on this model, it's amazing. This Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Werner Klocke.
