This is 10052 - Glacia the Winter Witch from Bombshell Miniatures. I'm doing this figure not as a winter witch, but rather as an Islander pirate shapeshifter sorceress for a friend as a thank you for doing me a huge personal favor. First off I've added a skull to her belt instead of the snowflake that was there previously. Then I added some green stuff to fill out the belt itself and give it more bulk as well as fill the gaps between the skull and the metal.

 

The base is the uneven planks happy seppuku stamp in sculpey.

Going to try to get this done over the next few days.

Here's the deck planking base. Used a lot of inks - Burnt Umber, Burnt sienna, raw sienna, reaper MSP stained ivory and pumpkin orange.

Thoughts? Look good or do I need to do anything else to it!

I would recommend letting the base sit until you have finished the mini.

Then you can look at the base and incorporate the colors from the mini to enhance the base.

Looking at the base now, I say.. Needs highlights, but you are no where near putting in a highlight, since

you still have color to do on the mini (in my humble opinion).  Love the face development though !

I'm actually using a lot (most) of the same colors on her skin as I did on her base. I may add more highlights to the base tho, it's missing something to me and I think a light drybrush of an off white may be what that base needs.

 

Looking to keep the base simple and effective as its for my friend's game and not display.

Looked more closely at the figure and figure concept art and realized she's showing a lot more skin than I originally thought. It's a happy accident as the inspiration pic has more skin showing too!

 

Here's where I'm at now-

I like the base a lot more too, more contrast and color variation. The sculpt itself is also quite unique and as a lover of pirate things I'm keen to see how she progresses. ^_^

This mini was one of my favorites from Patrick this time round. I love the inspiration pic and the added details especially the skull.

 

I agree the base looks much better now, it appeared too flat at first now it shows the texture much better. I'm not sure how far along you are with her skin, but the color is  looking awesome. I know you aren't done yet but right now her tribal tattoos steal the show a bit for her face rather than her eyes. Where the inspiration pic I am immediately drawn to the eyes and are the brightest focal point. Otherwise I love the direction you are going and I am sure she will look great on the game table.

 

Looking forward to seeing her progress.

It's looking really great.  I can't wait to put her into action.  She's the Pirate Captain in charge of the player's characters as her Boarding Party / Away Team.

 

If anyone would like to read up on Ravana, Captain of the Mourner's Veil, you can find her full description and learn about her true identity on Google Drive.

 

Ravana's picture is a combination of an original creation from an online artist and some edits I made ... like the tattoos, eyes, the power on her hand, and some of the gear.

 

Luckily, none of my players are on Reaper.  Though you have seen me post their efforts under our local Paint Day thread.

 

The campaign we're doing is a "build as we go" world where, like Shannara, they come across artifacts and places from "Earth" but the world has changed considerably.

 

Each of the PCs are non-standard races ... including a grippli, a lizardman, a pellyte (home-brew half-trolls), an ogre, a hadozee, and a grimlock.

 

They've found three major magical items that they are allowed to use per the captain, a Helmet, a Shield and a Sword.  Two of which are artifacts of old-Aerth.

 

If you want to know more about their adventures and such, I can be coerced into posting stories as I get around to writing them.

      The female changed from being a Storm Giant to being a Cloud Giant between the kickstarter and the retail release of the miniature. Whatever the subtype, she still gets a case of Smurfette syndrome.
       

      The pose of the female is a bit strange, and she does have a certain supermodel-vibe going on. Reaper has explained that the pose was meant to illustrate her bending down to talk to someone human sized, and as such it is not too bad. But taken out of context it just comes off as a bit cheesecake-ish. Reaper has acknowledged that the pose did not work as intended. The swimsuit-like corset really does not help to avoid this impression at all.
      Again, a mini with a slight case of bendyweaponitis. (which, in fact, is the proper scientific name for it). Treated with hot water then cold to straighten out the worst of it.
       
      I based her on a 50mm round lipped base.

      This is a miniature from last year. A NPC barbarian in a game I’m playing in got a two handed sword, which the old miniature used to represent the character of course didn’t have. So it was time for a switch. Overall it went fairly quick to complete the figure and I’m quite happy with the results.

      Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it.   A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wielding a towering incandescent blade. He lands next to you smashing the large tiles of the floor. You are paralyzed in fear as he turns gazing in your direction with fire in his eyes. Desperate, you wonder if you've gone too far exploring this ancient Undermountain realm.

      Victoriana from Bombshell Miniatures, sculpted by Patrick Keith.  This is the figure I entered into the Miniature Monthly Masters painting competition.  I really like this sculpt, and in fact I bought two more of her to paint just last week!  Some of her WIP photos are here:  WIP

      Taking a break from army painting to finish up Victoriana.  Next step is to finish up the NMM on her various brass tools.  Then painting the lenses on her hat.  After that, its time to do a freehand pattern on the carpet bag and plaid on her suit.
