OK folks, I need some help...
As most of you know, I am going to enter this guy in the Infamy painting contest, and I would like to make the best showing I can, so here are a bunch of pics, please choose the ones you think show him off the best!
(I can send 8 pics total....)
So please choose your favorite 8 pics and help me decide!
So I have been working on this guy since the middle of April, and finished his base and final assembly tonight, So I give you
I am taking many pictures to try and find flaws, as well as to solicit opinions as to the best way / angle / composition because Infamy miniatures is holding a painting contest for this figure, and I can only send them 6 pics.
(PS if you have this mini, just entering the contest will net you a store voucher of 10 GBP! Entries by 30 June)
I will likely post more pics when I get a better idea of what to do....
Thanks for looking, and critiquing!
Special Thanks to those that followed along in the WiP, as well as the Hangouts for all the encouragement and suggestions!
So after seeing people posting more old school minis, I broke out my PC case and started taking some pics, and thought these would be a good place to start!
I painted these the year they came out (88, 89, 90?) when the price was
using Polly S and Ral Partha paints when I was in college....
I tried to stay as true to the cover art of all the books / box sets / Accesories that had the picture of the figure(s). For some reason, I never painted the Elminster figure, he is still kicking around in the pile of unpainted stuff, along with about 10 more FR minis...
Someday, I'll paint them too...
We don't play in the Realms anymore... so no hurry to paint the others up....
Thnderstorm, From the cover of the FR box sets:
I thought the spear shaft he had was to thick, so it got replaced with a wire shaft from a different 'Partha' mini
Always wanted a mounted version of this guy, surprised they never made one...
The Magister, From the cover of The Magister:
Tristan, From the cover of Black Wizards:
The figure comes with a bow in his left hand, and I thought, and still do, that the bow needs to go away if you are sword fighting, so he got a hand axe instead. I have another lead copy of him, as well as a Partha Pewter of him as well...
The cut off bow got attached to his back under his cloak by the quiver...
Robyn, also from Black Wizards:
Alias, From the Cover of Azure Bonds:
Didn't have the confidence to try and paint the tats...
Dragonbait, also from Azure Bonds:
Bruenor Battlehammer, From the Crystal Shard,
Wulfgar, also from Crystal Shard:
Drzzt Do'Urden, also from Crystal Shard:
Shaerl Rowenmantle Amcathra: (11-056)
Fzoul Chembryl: (11-050)
Always liked this mini, might have to re do him someday...
Szass Tam, Zulkir of Necromancy, Red Wizard of Thay: (11-051)
Another someday re do....
I was SO proud of the paint jobs back then.....
Thanks for looking!
Finished up the Vourgha the Ogre late last night, and based him this afternoon.
So here he is!
Some close ups of his face:
This was the 1st time I tried '5 O'Clock shadow' on a figure, and I thought it came out well...
At least 1 of the close ups seems to be in focus
Of to Irrisen in Golarion now for a few hours...
Been working on and off on this guy, he won't make the August cut, but...
I recently got new brushes, and am learning to wet blend and layer so he is a transition figure...
The furs, hair and boots were worked on in my old paint, wash, high light style, now I guess that will end up forming the base coat for my new learning works in wet blending, layering, use of a wet palette and all these other new tips and tricks...
His skin is GW Tanned flesh, Layered up with GW Dwarf Flesh. His eyes were done with the 'Bette Davis' eyes tutorial from 'The Craft' section.
