Thanks Gang !

I was originally planning on doing a viking ship prow, but after serious consideration,

and four pages of sketches I decided it would detract from the mini, not add to it.

So I decided to go with the snow covered rune stone with a red dragon carved on it,

 

Was challenging to do.

Wonderful job, the base looks great!  The cloak is very nice as well.  Not sure if it's the photo, but I feel after looking at the contrast in the cloak and seeing the progress you've made, a little more contrast in the skin would be an excellent next step.

Thanks Melvin;

Didn't see you sneak in your comment there..LOL.

Trying to upscale the basing.

As Ub3R said, a good base isn't easy !

I did three pages of drawings before I decided on this one!

My only critique is to take your time a bit more I see unpainted green stuff on the side and grey paint on the black edges.

I'll take care of those mistakes :)

Sometimes one focus is on doing everything right, you overlook the obvious.

I was very intense when it came to doing the base, I never even saw the two flaws you mention.

Glad they are simple to recover from !

:)

Thanks for the input !

A good way to see those is that when you are "finished" put it away for a day or two and then come back to it with new/fresh eyes so that those are more observable. ::):

Looks great, and I really liked your work on the base.  Only slight critique would be to dull down the metal a bit.  Not that it looks bad, more that it doesn't quite seem right for a rough, tough viking fellow.

I love it when a miniature tells a story just by looking at it.

Pezler the Polychromatic;

Thank YOU so much for that comment !

I'm still trying to figure out how exactly to do that,

With the wonderful folks on this forum, you will get the information on how to

make that a reality !

Thanks again, you made my day

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      Hadn't painted metal in a while... it was refreshing!
