looks good... but sorry.. I could not guess at what it said and even after checking the spoiler I had to concentrate to see where you were going with the letters.  :huh:

Looks good, But the logo isn't that visible.

 

IMHO the letters should have a little more space between them and they should be a bit thinner, now some letters touch the next making it difficult to see.

The skull on the back is very good.

Red on black doesn't show so well. It breaks a general rule of heraldry with regard to metals and regular colors when designing a charge. If your background is a solid then the charge or logo should be a metal, which is white (silver) or yellow (gold). These guidelines were established to maximize the visibility of a charge at a distance.

 

Now if each of the red letters were outlined in white.....

HAHAHA!!!  In one glance I knew it was SLAYER!  Probably because I am a huge fan and have seen the logo thirty times each morning in my closet for years...

 

Anyway, the mini has a slash vibe going on with the hair and glasses.

 

Not sure what the rest of the band looks like but if they are all metal heads a nice diorama of them fighting off the zombie hordes of the PMRC would work.

Thanks for the replies and advice, everyone. It looks like I've still got a ways to go with this whole free handing thing. Gotta start somewhere, though, right?

Cool!! I wasn't too sure how good it looked; I figured if anyone would get it, it'd be a metal head! \m/

 

Yep, the rest of band looks similar, they're definitely metal heads. That is a very interesting idea for a diorama...

I love to see some Reaper Minis depicting proper Headbangers.

 

Not the punk rock musicians they have now.

 

I want them to have long hair, and metal studs on their jackets and a bald leadsinger with ammo belt, chains and such.

 

Maybe a Gothic Female Singer in a gown..

Some of the better ones, IMO, are still the old gw ork rockers.

 

So much character, so much awesomeness.

I've been trying to get a complete set of those just about forever.

I couldn't remember what they were called earlier...Goffic Rockers i believe.

 

I use to have a set of them from their original release.

 

Gw re-released them a few years back, I looked for mine and couldn't find them.

      On Wednesdays I’ve been playing in Storm King’s Thunder at my FLGS, and since I have lots of minis, I’ve basically been providing the minis for the game, including for my fellow players. However, in spite of how expansive my collection is, I don’t always have a perfect match… sometimes not even close to a good match.
       
      This was the case for the party’s human warlock and bard. For the warlock, I was using an elven bladesinger, and the bard was a female elven bard, both from the Chainmail line. It was not a good fit for the rogue-like warlock, and my utter and total lack of male bards of any type was frankly astonishing.
       
      The monk was okay (also from the chainmail line), but as an asamar, the skin was wrong, and the colors of everything else was off too.
       
      So with my most recent order I selected some new minis.
      14544: Ian, Ivy Crown Mage for the warlock
      02500: Fergus the Weaver for the bard
       
      After washing them and taking care of a bit of flash and moldlines (very minor in both cases) I mixed up some greenstuff and pressed out new bases to match the bases I’ve made for the rest of the party’s minis from the Ruined Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku. Once the greenstuff was cured I spray primed them black, and then got to painting.
       

       
      I’m still blocking in colors, and checking with my fellow players to make sure they match what they picture in their minds. I used Tanned Flesh for the warlock and and bard’s skin, and NMM Gold for the monk’s skin. Beyond that I’m not really sure what to do for the monk… Waiting on feedback.
       

       
      For the warlock, I’m painting the tunic in blue, and I’m thinking about trying to give the impression of raven’s feathers for the mantle. The yellow accents will give a nice contrast to the otherwise black/blue/purple colors that’ll make up his pallet.
       
      The bard I’m less clear on how to paint him up. So far I’m going with a bright red tunic with some yellow/gold trim. We’ll see what feedback I get from the player going forward.
       
      More to come!

      89012: Lem, Iconic Bard sculpted by Derek Schubert.  This guy was supposed to be a speed paint, but I got too interested in putting diamond patterns on his clothes.

      Howdy,
       
       This turned out to be a rough sculpt...

      P.S. Sing it baby!
