Two down, four? to go. The elf and fairy are done while the vampire has been started and I would say is 70% done. I also have been doing base work but forgot to take pictures. I poured the resin for the fairy's and is seems to have set with no leaks, so yeah! No frontal pictures of the fairy right now but I will try to get one up tomorrow.

Very good progress!

 

Also, congrats on your successful resin/basing work.

 

Thanks, just keep your fingers crossed that the resin actually set. I won't know for sure until tomorrow.

 

 

Very nice!

Some mouseling is peeking around your light....

Maybe he is looking for paint? ??

Thank! I wish I had time to paint him but he will have to wait. He was part of the package containing the two for my diorama and I have not put him away yet so he has been supervising.

Those mini's are looking great. Love the blue you have going on the last photo.

 

Thanks! Surprisingly there is little actual blue in it. It is Icy Violet shaded with Royal Purple and highlighted with True Blue. I am finding that I like to play with colors like this.

Alright, here is the front picture (link due to nudity) of the fairy. I painted the ribbon in her hair as a vine and added a couple of flowers and some leaves. I should have left the flowers off and just used leaves. I am not happy with them but it is too late now. The flowers are from a railroad garden kit and are not sculpted by me.

 

Fairy, Front

maybe if you think of the flowers as berry clusters it won't annoy you as much.

 

 

I think it looks great.

 

Berry clusters work, probably due to the colors. Thanks!

Ok, no pictures at this point, I might take some later tonight. I have finished the skin and pants on the toad. I also completed the leather, including the whip, and hair of the vampire. Good news is the resin fully set for the fairy's base and it has been sanded and sealed. I added little bit of white to the flowers in her hair and they look a lot better. I also added a few of them to the base to tie things together and added the willow foilage. Except for blackening the plinth and a few corrections, her base is done.

 

Here is my checklist, I have included the names for the pieces but I do not have one for the vampire and have not settled on one for the elf. If you have any suggestions for them or replacements for the others, feel free to chime in.

 

Vampire: "???????"

- Boots

- Metallics

Base

- Mushrooms

- Skulls

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Elf: "Forest Eternal" or "Forest's Return"

- Done

Base

- Mushrooms

- Tree

- Skull

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Mouslings: "The Hunt"

- Leather

- Green Cloak

- Wood/Acorn

- Metallics

- Spider

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Foilage

- Web?

 

Cat/Toad: "The Bridge"

- Leather

- Metallics

- Wood

- Eyes

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Sign

- Treasure

- Water

- Foilage

 

Kabuki Hunter: "The Hunter"

- Leather

- Axe handle

- Metallics

- Hair and eyes

Base

- Add dirt

- Everthing

 

Fairy: "The Blue Fairy"

DONE!!!

 

It may seem like a lot but in reality most of the big stuff is done. This is just little stuff here and there that should not take too long. The biggest thing left is probably the metallics and not waiting until the last minute to do the water under the bridge. I will be using Secret Weapon's water effects not resin as it is a shallow pour. If I had finished painting that part of the base before I did the fairy's water, I would have used the left over resin from that. Unfortunately I thought of it right after I finished mixing the resin.

Ok, lengthy picture update with few words. Any feedback and name suggestions would be most welcome.

 

Spider is done:

Horny toad, a little washed out by the light:

Grey Mousling, why did I never paint Mouslings before, they are too much fun:

The red hunter with her rope bag of orc heads. I love how the red turned out:

The vampire that is turning out to be my favorite. Still surprised the whip worked out:

lovely,   I suspect your not done so ignore my suggestions ...  Toad's leather needs some highlights as well as the tummy on the mousling.

 

The Vampire is the best of the lot but I think the mousling is giving her a bit of a run for the top spot.

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work

       
      Mar 1:  base GS sculpting

       
      — LONG BREAK —
       
      Aug 2:  skin lined, basecoated, and shaded


       
      Aug 6:  skin initial highlights

      Here is my take on the Dance of Death sculpt from the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
       

       

       
      I really enjoyed this one,  finishing it up this last winter. I saw someone mention somewhere online that they were bummed that the heads didn't exactly line up, but I found it reminiscent of dogs when they are snarling while looking sidelong at each other.
       
      Apologies for the scratches and discolorations on the background. I've been meaning to pick up some black cloth to improve that.
       
      Thanks for taking a look!

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!
