I have been painting this over in the Show-Off Forum for the past two weeks.

Here is my Mouse Warrior completed.  If you want to see how I got to this stage of the

miniature, check out the Mouse Warrior WIP by clicking my name tab below the title.

 

I can honestly say that this was a total delight to paint, So many options, and some real challenges

in there.  All that fur and really fine details added to my enjoyment.  I especially enjoy the decision making

process of what can I do with this.  So here he is.

 

You comments/Criticism is always solicited, and greatly appreciated.

Let me know what you think please.

Jay

That is one not-to-be-messed-with Mouse. Your BEAUTIFUL brushwork & FINE choice of colors have brought out all the Little Rodent Warrior's character SPLENDIDLY. The LOVELY base adds depth to the effect. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you for the likes and the comments.

I really enjoy seeing what people are noticing, he is rather fierce looking isn't he !

I really liked getting that piercing stare in his one eye, and playing with the eye patch !

Your comments mean a great deal to me.

Keep them coming please.

The little fellow has certainly seen his share of scraps, hasn't he?

 

Very nice work on him, including his base!

Thanks Chaoswolf;

He is a pretty tough mouse! 

He even has a small scar of ripped fur on top of his snout!  LOL

Mr. Summer had a good time sculpting this one !

Well done on the fur, and the base is very good too. I like that you managed to get a highlight on the eye, it makes him really come alive.

 

One suggestion is that you could shade the metallics a little more in a couple places, like on the shield. Having those darker shadows would make the highlights look shinier.

 

Great work!

Thanks Pragma !

Really appreciate your suggestions.  I've really gotten into playing around with the fur a lot.

Every time I do one of these fury creatures I love playing with the ear colors, and making the face

as realistic, and lifelike as possible.  These things are quite the challenge, besides being small.

Thanks again !

      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.
