Alright guys, I need your help and sorry about the pictures he was a pain to photograph. This little guy is about half-way done so this will be a short WIP but I need some more eyes on him. He is destined for a convention this weekend so I won't have time to change anything major. The tunic, crest, and skin are done, although the skin is washed out in the pictures. Remaining are the tights, shoes, metallics, and base. I am trying for directional highlighting with the light coming from the top and front (shining down on his face) which will be more evident when I start on the metallics.

 

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Oh, ignore the freckles note. It was an idea that did not work.

Hmm if he didn't have that weapon in hand. I'd say go for a sword in the stone vibe.

 

The base needs something added, it's a lot of dead space on there for him.

 

Maybe a tiny animal companion friend like a kitty or ferret?

Maybe a squashed stuffed animal on the base?

Looks fun,

There will be some tufts to fill the base out but an animal companion might work. I have a bunch that I got for another piece that I can try out. I will have to see as the base is only about an inch square and has the stump already.

Maybe an animal companion kinda hiding playfully from him like stalking from behind in some of those tufts?

Great ideas guys and I am definetly going to have to remember Marvin, great inspiration idea. Unfortunately for the familiars, him and the base ended up being too small for all but one. I tried one of the Dark Sword cats, didn't fit on the base. Tried the ferret, it is bigger than he is. Yes, he is that small. But then I remembered one that I have had for a long time, one that I have been scared of loosing, one that I think is a perfect little addition. I present to you Hedgie , the tiniest thing I have ever painted.

Isn't he cute? He has always been one of my favs. I am going to put the tufts around and behind him but not too much in front so he doesn't get blocked. But that is for another day, I am off to bed and will have more updates tomorrow evening as I begin the metallics.

Very cute little fella. Yep, don't hide him too much, just a little bit around behind him, keep him in the scene, but not the star of the show. A tiny cute point of interest.

Alright, no update yesterday as promised, I am in the coughing stage of my strap throat which makes it difficult to paint. I was able to stop long enough today though to finish painting him, at least I think I am finished. What do you guys think? Once again, apologies for the crappy pictures.

And what I am most proud of regarding this paint job, he actually has eyes!

      I've previously posted Hasslefree's Velma analogue 'Louise' as a Miskatonic library assistant. High time I got the rest of the gang together.


       
      A cheap toy VW bus is key to this whole thing. The flowers and turquoise are my addition.
       

       

       
      We have Not-Fred-for-Legal-Reasons! (Barney, postapocalyptic version. No ascot, sadly, but a more dynamic sculpt.)

       
      Not-Daphne! (Felicity, also post-apoc version; she looks good with a bat)

       
      Not-Shaggy and his Great Dane! (Wolsey, standard version, and Hamlet; the box of SNAX I made from a chunk of sprue)

       
      And Not-Velma (Louise, featured in another post.)

       
      More turnaround pix:

      What sorts of shenanigans would these meddling teens get up to? and why would they be hired by the circus? (Obviously, the circus doesn't want or need the regular police, even if they could help with spooky crimes.)
       

      '
       
      Shaggy would immediately volunteer to check out the midway, I think.
      "Hey Scoob! You ever had a turkey leg...wrapped in cotton candy?" 
      *doglike sounds vaguely approximating the phrase "Not yet!"*

       

       
      Daphne splits off to search for clues (there are plenty),
       
       

       
      Behold! A performer about to take a Louisville Slugger straight to the groin!

       
      Somebody has released the animals from the Beast-Tamer's act! 

       
      Good thing Barney knows how to make himself look big and loud, not like panther prey! That'll scare them off.

       
      Nothing beats legwork and research for getting to the bottom of a problem. Somebody's been embezzling and cooking the books, if Velma's calculations are correct (they are).

       

       
      Hope you enjoy...I certainly did!

      Hasslefree specializes in characterful badasses, and I thought it good to paint a few of them up like my merc Frank Russo. Meet the Major, Ekaterina, Rowen, Alex, and Tank, along with their previously posted colleagues:
       
       
       
      In several cases they have been modified or accessorized.  My FLGS had some leftover GW Bitz they were kind enough to let me plunder, and between that, a GW scout walker's leftover bitz, and Bombshell tool sprues there were plenty of canisters and accessories to go around. 
       
      Here is the Major. (Hasslefree designation Major Hoare.) I added the gas tanks and the hose to his weapon. One canister is pyrophoric, the other, an extinguisher. The Major is acutely aware of which is connected at all times. I assume the cigar is a futuristic electronic device, for that would be most unsafe otherwise. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Ekaterina appears to be one of Hasslefree's analogues to Black Widow. I added some canisters and a Bombshell machete. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Rowen here really sold me on this project. Love that dynamic and confident stroll, and the flippy hairstyle. They are very secure in who they are, even more so with a portable GW missile strapped to their back.
       

       

       
       
      Alex has access to guns and grenades but prefers sharp blades. [This mini, unlike his colleagues, comes in like six pieces; pin and glue accordingly.]

       

       

       
      And of course there is Tank. Tank is not Hasslefree, but rather a leftover GW scout walker pilot. I've posted in the past about diversity in minis, and resolved to follow through on that by giving him a souped-up wheelchair/personal mobility device with some extra bells and whistles. Tank sees your wheelchair-inaccessible stairs and is prepared to turn them into an accessible ramp of smoking rubble. GW parts plus parts from a toy car I found under a refrigerator.
       
       
       

       
       
       
      And lastly, a repaint of Bombshell's Maelee, to get her in line with the Task Force dress code. Also added a couple pouches and canisters. 
       

       

       
      Together they make a formidable team, good for spacefuture or cyberpunk settings. What sorts of mayhem mightn't they get up to...for the right price, of course?

      Hello friends!!
       
      I'm wanting to do a little market research and I'm hoping I can get your help. 
       
      For Bones V I sculpted a bunch of kids heroes and their pet companions. These were some of my favorite figures to work on and I'd like to do more. To be very very clear I have NO indication that Reaper will be producing any more of those types of figures and I'm in no way promising to create anything we discuss here. I have no shortage of ideas when it comes to new kid heroes but I'm wanting to see what types of figures people would want if hypothetically I decided to create more. 
       
      I really like the idea of doing brother/sister sets, offering male and female options for particular races or themes. Simply from a design perspective it allows me to explore an idea more fully. Again, this is purely for my personal side projects and fun, not related to any official releases. That said, it's nice to know what the thoughts were about the ones I've already made and what holes people may want filled within that genre. 
       
      My questions are:
      •What did you like/love/hate/ignore about the kid heroes from Bones V?
      •What themes or types of kid heroes would you be interested in? 
      •What purpose would they serve for you? Just fun to paint? Have kids who want to play but struggle to find a figure that represents them? Using them as stand ins for hobbits/halflings/gnomes or other vertically challenged races? 
      •What themes would you like to see explore in this context? Steampunk, modern, arthurian, more "random fun" types, traditional villager or starting hero types? Dragonkin, Genasi or other less popular fantasy races?

      The new student assistant at Miskatonic's Orne Library! Already Ms Dinklage (Hasslefree's "Louise") has proven to be adept at scholarship and library science, and not easily frightened (this latter being a VERY useful job skill at Ol' Misk). When asked about her tremendous sang-froid she was evasive, mentioning 'friends from [her] summer job' and 'travels in dark corners of the earth.'  


      With some of her fellow-students:


      And with others on the library faculty:

      After giving both Buckland and the Miner a jaunty yellow-and-white scheme, it came burning hot into my mind that they should be part of a team of space roughnecks/asteroid miners/problem solvers. This is the rest of that team. 

      First, Kulgara. She's a Pathfinder model, from the 'Iron Gods' adventure, and is a techno-badelf. What a great Space Orc. I think her vambraced fists count as construction equipment, and the ridiculously huge chainsaw (with knuckle spikes, in case you have a chainsaw fight and need to punch someone?) is beautifully over-the-top. I'm not sure what the lever-matic tool on her back is supposed to be. The giant wrench is from Bombshell.



      She's definitely in the right line of work here.

       
      Next up, Sluggo, the Space Henchman. Noseless and brutish, with gangly but muscular arms and a dyspeptic expression. I thought at first of making him the same species as the Andromedans, but decided against it and gave him a pale Vampiric Flesh+Magos Purple sluglike complexion. Jetpack is Bombshell again. I love jetpacks, though I'm afraid this one gets in the way of his suspendies.
       


      Serendipitously, I remembered the weird little Slimer-like alien I had leftover from Betty, Space Heroine (50150). It, too, has a big round noseless head, rubbery aspect, wiry limbs, and short legs! Perhaps it and Sluggo here are the same species; it certainly looks like it could hench in a pinch. I'll call it Squish.
       

       
      Also got a fella in a hazmat suit with some kind of Geiger-counter sensor or such, from Hasslefree. Seen here in a routine check of goo emissions levels. Just carrying out assigned tasks, nothing suspicious here.

       
      And here's the whole greasy roustabout crew:
