Shading look nice, but a more straight on photo would be nice too.  I have no idea myself about the mini.  But, I think you did a bang up job!

A more Straight on photo will will only show you an elbow.

I tried taking photos of the face, and sadly the arm is blocking you from seeing anything ::(:

You did a great job here the hair especially, now could that stamp say gw not cw as in games workshop?

Thank You Limey72 !

It might be GW1980... hmmmm....

I have to do some research on that :;):

Its a great miniature ! 

I love the detail, I have to accept that it is old, and this isn't the "modern casting methods available" now.

Nicely done Jay.  

 

I think a photo taken at the same height/level as the mini is what people are looking for and not a staright on of the face.   I would love to look at her from the front and back to get a better impression of the clothing and gear she is carrying.

 

I am also loving your tendency to do red heads... apparently my needling you to use orange has paid off!  :upside:

I see if I can pull off a few photos from a lower vantage point.

I'm actually having fun with the Orange hair..

Its amazing how many colors you can get going, and with a bit of matte varnish, it really perks up.

Its fun to mix in other colors as well, to form shadow colors.

Better.. now if you can go down on bended knee...

 

(wait thats a proposal!!!)... :blush:

 

I mean lower the camera by another 4 inches  so you are level with the table surface

(or even low enough that you are pointing the camera up at the mini)

we would be able to see all of that detail straight on.   ^_^

There is NO way I can do that Robin.

My set up will give nothing but a lot of blur.

I guess that now is the time to update my photo shop capabilities !

Once my friends wedding is finished, and I recover from doing the ceremony, and speaking at it on Saturday.

I'll start looking at enhancing my photo taking ability.

Too much on my plate for the next couple of weeks.

Well as the person overseeing that wedding I will give you a pass this time.

 

Enjoy the cermony and remember... after all of the vows have been said the Officials at the weeding can enjoy the reception and a dance with the bride too!

 

PS Don't sweat the speech I suspect you have that in the bag!

This is going to be one of the toughest and most important chats I do.

Shudder... I'm trying to get it under control.

AND start another mini (hey, I have my priorities going..ROFL).

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      Hello forum Family, gonna show you my version of D'Vandra Lukesia, the metal one. I had hard time with her (but this is part of the fun, isn't?), so many tiny details and her face is sooo tiny 
      In any case I managed to paint her and I'm happy of she came out! 
      About the palette I chose the colors on the fly, started with the yellow skirt and simply add colors at the moment I needed to paint a detail, like the amaranth scarf, or the blue bag, the green vial, and so on.
      I hope you like her too :)

      Short Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo games for female Soviet troopers for WWII gaming.  Thiis expands their existing range and adds troops clad for winter.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures
       

      Story
      Hello! This is a Kickstarter to increase our existing WW2 Soviets range. Already massively popular since the first wave launch of 2016, we decided it needs reinforcements! The miniatures are sculpted and master cast, so this project is to cover the funds of production moulds and the initial casts.
       
      BORING BUT IMPORTANT TECHNICALS - The miniatures are 28mm scale and cast in extremely high quality white metal. Everything is single piece where possible. They come without bases supplied but with moulded on small puddle  bases (easy to chop off if you wish to). And of course -   they are compatible with the similar male miniatures from other manufacturers. They are supplied unpainted - so you can either paint them yourself or simply bring out the detail with an ink wash.
       
      Shipping is charged in addition to your pledge, AFTER THE CAMPAIGN, scroll to the bottom for more information. Please don't add the shipping cost during the campaign. EU Customers be aware of additional import fees, more on that later too.

      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
