great job, but for those of us that are tooo lazy to look up the other post, what figure is it?

Oh, sorry, forgot to include that. It's a conversion based on the old model for Fiona the Black, and the satyxis sea witch.

Well, David, you have yourself a contender there.  I certainly can't see any damning criticisms, except maybe that it is bad luck to post them before the competition (although that's gone well for you in the past).

 

I feel like I should remind you to double check the lighting on small detail objects, as that's been my criticism of your stuff the past couple of years (skulls especially).  I don't see any of that going on in the photos, though, so I suspect you've been listening.

 

The thing that strikes me from the pictures is that the base seems less loved than she does- ie, the contrast on the base is a bit low.  

 

To be honest, I'm never quite sure how much love a base ought to get, since it needs to not outshine the mini.  Plus that's exactly the sort of thing that might not be showing up in the photos, but just have another look at the base and decide if the contrast is right.

 

Sue would tell you the contrast is too low on the base. and I find it stunning how often she can be right without varying her advice.

      So this is me trying to paint non-metallic metal for the first time. The mini is one of the dwarves from thehnolog's castlecraft line. Since it is my first, I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope I'll get better at this over time. All comments and suggestions regarding NMM are welcome. Thanks for looking!

      I had it sitting on my bench for more than a year. Brought it on sale and it was nice working with such a heavy model, thought it did fall apart a couple times (Since I am not using it for gaming, I did not pin it).  The fourth picture seems to have the closest red to how it looks in real life.

      Painted this to use in my upcoming DnD campaign....freakin hard to paint. I could tell this was going to be difficult for me from the get go, so much stuff. Sometimes I wish models had approximate difficulty levels on the boxes.
       
      The trio that the player characters will encounter are towards the bottom. 
       
      Players should be trudging though a swampy bayou for a bit before they encounter a soft candle light glow in the distance ahead of them. The magicked candles begin to block the players night vision as they get closer. If they turn away, the candlelight will wink out and reappear in front of them again. Eventually they will encounter Papa Hoodoo and his gator zombie constructs Leblanc and Boudreaux.  I may pick up a reaper dire gator as a possibility during the encounter.
       
      The pics below are more of a forest than swamp, but was having some fun with taking pictures this morning and I don't have any swamp terrain.
