Well, i based another mini, minimaly this time. Not to much going on but sometimes a little goes a long way. One of the first mini i did this year but i waited for the right idea for the base. I really love using the juice bottle caps for basing. Always gives a good presentation and there is room for decor without drowning the mini in it.

 

I went classic for this beast. Can't go wrong with that. I'll go crazy if i do another one. Maybe black & white like a holstein. Will see. I recently got some tools to remove the blob bases. Most of them will fare well without'em. Should have done that sooner. Oh well... Practice, learn, get better and practice some more.

Nice Job!

Another way to do this instead of removing the molded base, is to carve out a space in the new larger base so that the molded one is level, more or less, with the top of the new base. If you look at this WIP of mine, you can see what I mean.

      Never heard of this before but it's a cool monster. Not sure when or where you'd run into one, but I bet it will be the most inconvenient time and place.   According to online sources they come in all colors, so I loosely based mine on a green iguana.

      Good Friday everyone, I just took some pictures of the 02479, Ettin I completed last night. This is a Dark Heaven Legends metal model that was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It stand on a 50mm base and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Coincidently, I was delighted to see the amazing upcoming two-headed Troll also sculpted by Jason Wiebe that was announced last night during Reaper Live #117 on Twitch. (see the image under spoiler and the end of the post).

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred

      Hello everyone, here is my spirit of the forest 02690, Owlbear. It was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I placed it on a 50mm base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
      I already had painted this model 10 years ago, you can see the other version here.
