Mariel Twinspar, Female Pirate (77135) (Bones)

Nice job!  I like the decorations on the coat (though I wonder if it was a practice run for doing some free hand on your sigilist?).

Since I always imagine every mini you paint ending up in Frostgrave, I was suddenly envisioning an all-pirate warband showing up to the frozen city OR a wizard and apprentice who hire on a gang of the scurvy dogs.  It could be an interesting group.

Still, staying on focus with this, a really nice paint job on her and the subtlety of the outfit making the coat stand out more by contrast was a really nice touch!

Thanks, Pippin!  Actually it was by coincidence that I did this jacket as I was plotting my Sigilist; but it gave me the confidence to go forward with my plans for that figure, and taught me a few things.

     Hmmm...a pirate based Frostgrave warband; that definitely would be very cool.  The initial problem I see is that most pirate figures are dressed from warmer seas than the Frostgrave setting.  It would probably necessitate some conversion work...not that that is a bad thing...:)   

 

 

 

Ohhh, that coat is fabulous.

 

 

Thank you, Pingo!

 

 

I love it!!!

 

 

Thank you, Xherman!

 

 

Beautiful, the colors work so well together and her face is great, love the eye and lips.

 

Thanks, Marsya!  I felt confident paying extra attention to the eye,  going all out with an iris highlight and eyeshadow, because I knew I only had to do one eye  and didn't have to make a matching pair!  :)  

 

 

Love the print work on the jacket.  

 

Thank you, llc!

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      Here's a simple one for you.  Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one.

      I painted her up as a fun project. Let me know what you think. 
       
      I am trying to improve my painting abilities.
       
      The purple marking on her thigh was supposed to be a skull tattoo, it didn't really work as well as I had hoped.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?
