Pingo's Conga Line of Half-Finished Minis

Recommended Posts

Sounds like a good plan.  I love the colors on the Thunderbolt elf lady.  I ought to get mine out and finish them one of these years.

Holidays are over! Back to work, drone! ::P:

 

 

Also, I was actually expecting a conga line. Are those not a thing anymore?

OOOH...COOL STUFF! I really like the way the Pirate Babe turned out. AND there are all sorts of pieces on the verge of becoming  WONDERFUL creations.

Are those some Shadowrun figures in the mix?

Well spotted, yes. There are some classic old Ral Partha Shadowrunners in there.

A few more. This is Hasslefree Miniature's not-Scooby-Doo gang: HFN024 "Hamlet" the great dane, Velma (HFN002 "Louise"), Daphne (HFN003 "Felicity"), Shaggy (HFN004 "Wolsey"), and Fred (HFN005 "Barney"); as well as Hasslefree's not-Willow-Rosenberg from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", (HFA041 "Witch Hazel").

I found some resin skulls and things to add to the bases. The candelabrum on Velma's base was too fragile and snapped off while I was prying her off her blue-tac jar. So I glued it down flat and figured that works anyway. Good thing I didn't try to paint the candles lit.

"Witch Hazel" is really a beautiful little figure, with graceful lines. I tried to paint her base to look like traffic lights seen from far, far above, but if it just looks like a vaguely eldritch abstraction that's okay too.

I've been painting the low-hanging fruit here, the minis that are essentially done except for some finishing touches, in this case the bases. After this they require more work and probably won't come as fast.

Finished is absolutely the best! Even if it is low hanging fruit.... How does Witch Hazel look from the front?

Great stuff so far!

 

I don't know about you, but getting some low hanging fruit finished and out of the way is always a nice boost for me.

Pretty fair, I think.

Didn't get as many done today, but I took pictures of some progress, which I'll post later.  I may make some Show-Off threads for some of the cooler figures (I really do love this Willow one).

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.
       
      CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.

      I have 99 problems but a painted mini ain't one.
       
      That sounded better in my head and I apologize for the unintentional grimacing I have caused.
       
      I noticed by happenstance (while checking my BGstats challenges) that today marks 99 days until the end of the year. What better way to initiate a painting challenge? I am throwing down the gauntlet...for myself, I guess. I need to get some serious minis painted out of my collection.
       
      Tonight I will spend making a quick foray into what minis I have that I think should be thrown into this seemingly impossible challenge. I will hopefully accomplish picking the first thing to paint...maybe even a pile of things to paint.
       
      For the sake of this challenge, "mini" is going to be a vague guideline. Characters, NPCs, monsters, terrain, scatter, small, massive, etc. - it doesn't matter. I will paint a bunch of stuff. Some of it may even turn out looking alright...maybe.
       
      Anyone crazy enough to join me?

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
