A "notch?"  This is what you call upping your basing skills a notch?  Fantastic base, and excellent paint job.  The only (very slight) criticism is that her hair looks pretty reddish instead of blonde.  Could be the pic though.  I find the colors in my pics never quite look the same as they do in person.

Thank you, and she ISN'T a blond.  She is a Red Head.

I know of no color scheme when it comes to miniatures, except for what I like....LOL

It's a beautiful setting for an exquisite figure. I love those tiny Tom Meier sculpts.

As I told you in our private conversation, she's stunning. Great job, Jay. I'm so happy you are leveling up your basing skills along with your painting, it really helps tell the story!!!

She is stunning, Jay! My only minor criticism is that the pinkish red of the really cool banner clashes with the deep red of the nice roses.

Thank you Everyone for your comments.

Citrine, I never even noticed that secondary color on the banner.

Your experienced eye taught me something ! 

 

This mini is a joy (and a bear to paint), I used Lava Orange in the folds to create the shadow color.

She is soooooooooo small that you need to watch your brush tip like a hawk.

Note the necklace... that took ten minutes to do, one stroke at a time, and triple checking the paint on the 4/0 brush

consistency. The figure takes time, you can't rush it either.

The hair was a delight, and playing with the orange and reds, plus the shadow colors was so much fun.

Highlights were a hoot to do.. They just popped!

Basing for this mini became quite complicated. My hands did NOT like working on the balcony at all.

I assembled it out of cork board and a one inch block of pine attached to a 1 inch base.

Each piece was glued and held in place with pins.  When dried I removed the pins (and in some cases

re-glued the non-attached part). I am very very indebted to Ub3r_N3rd for his invaluable input, and suggestions

as I worked my way through this.  I loved that I remembered to cut out a tile floor from an old playing card set for

the tile base, and just taking my time to do this.  I really am quite happy with it.

Thanks for your comments.  Its been a hoot to do.

Course robinh will LOVE the Orange hair :)

ROFL.

Jay

      Statuesque Miniatures

      Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people!

      You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
