Jay... this is your BEST to date! You really knocked it out of the park, I totally thought the bark base was plain, but you explained you had painted it to look so natural! LEVEL UP!!!

Superb job!  The eggs on the base certainly add a fun story to the miniature, and you have some strong color depth in the mini!!!  Also, I just have to say that I love the natural-looking pattern on those eggs!  ::):

This is truly a wonderful scene, with great contrast between the model and it's base. The story here is easy to see. My hat's off to you Sir!

Thank you my friend.  I honestly was shocked when I looked at the base and realized that I had done it.  The cliff face was like a symphony to do.

I just followed one of the old video's I saw, took my time, and just played.  The nest and eggs were a fun thing to do, but gosh is it tiny.  I didn't think

I could even paint something that small, and put a pattern on the eggs..ROFL.  Thank you for you help, and valuable input !

I'm so glad you like him Xherman.  Uhh, I wouldn't mess with the Osprey, but I don't think the chicken coups have armed

themselves yet.  Just be casual like, and check them out before raiding !!

 

Love the final result! Very nice!

So glad you came along for the bumpy ride as I did this miniature.

Lots of learning, and lots of fun.  Its a great sculpt !  Thanks.

Thank you so much Kuro Cleanbrush !  I really started remembering some art lessons I had, and started mixing in the burnt umbers, and darks into my paint.  Remembering to use Complimentary colors in shadows.  Thank you for noticing the eggs, I actually looked up Osprey eggs, and they are mottled so I really appreciate that it was noticed.  Ub3R also provided me with a view of the Osprey eggs.  I have adored painting this one.

Thank You Vegascat.  I can honestly say that doing this had become a labor of love,and also great learning.

There are many chances to excel with this mini.  It really taught me a lot about color, balance, and brush control.

That face and feathers is daunting, but it can be done.. and when you get the eyes in...wow does it come to life.

PS, you really should post this to Darksword's Fb page.

Sadly I don't use the facebook stuff since it draws too much attention to myself and family.

My kids have asked that I limit their exposure on the web.

But it would be nice to see it up there with some of that beautiful stuff !

I very nice piece indeed.  As others have said, the work you have been putting in has paid off on this piece.  Bravo!

Thank you soooo much my friend.

It has been a delightful , and learning full experience for me.

I can't believe I was sculpting a nest the size of a dime..ROFL.

Really taught me a lot, and I hope I passed that excitement along in my WIP.

Thanks again.

Really nice! You've put together a great scene. I also really like the red and the green. 

Thank You Patrik !

This is one of those times when I decided to play with complimentary colors.

It really worked out to my benefit !

I also was mixing in darks (like burnt Umber), walnut brown into my reds, and browns.

It really added to a richer color. (my color wheel got a bit of a workout). 

So thank you again !

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!

      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?
