A little while ago I purchased Hasslefree's "Fairies Wear Boots" piece.

The Gothic Punk like Fairy stomps on candy.

 

Now I kept thinking that it would be fun to have her chasing little Imps and stomp those into the ground.

So I got me some little familairs and stuff from Reaper.

 

Then Malefacus ( Al) send me a wonderful Mushroom he sculpted.

 

To top things off, Knarthex ( George) send me some stuff including a nice oval wooden plinth.

 

Thinking about it all, I realised I now have the ingredients to start on this piece.

 

The Idea is the Fairy chases Imps and Stomps a few into the ground. Maybe she swallowed a growth potion or something.

Now she can finally have her revenge on those pesky Imps!

 

The Mushroom watches the whole scene in horror.

 

I will not use all these Imps/Demons, but I will take my pick which will suit the scene best.

To complement the large Shroom, I will include some smaller resin mushrooms.

 

Painting will follow later, but here are the ingredients:

Thx all for the encouragement.

 

Today I sculpted a litte terrain with milliput.

The idea is a forest ground, a little mud, autumn...

 

Here is the setup.

The Mushroom King watches the scene, the little ones aren't sentient yet..

 

The Fairy has been bullied all her life by these little demons, now she got hold of a growth potion.

 

One Imp/Little Demon is down in one of her footsteps.

Another is just escaping the boot while two others are already running for it.

 

The mushrooms are the only thing glued on yet.

The big one and the minis are not, except the unfortunate one who is stomped into the forest ground.

 

I wanted to give the feeling of the demons suddenly being attacked and so they are fleeing in all directions, not all will make it.

The Fairy has had it with them.

 

As long as the potion works she will use it to get her revenge.

 

Hope you like the setup so far.

Painting will follow

Today we had a few sunny moments, so I painted some stuff while sitting in the garden.

 

Some Scale 75 Deep Red., Sandal Wood.

Reaper, Carrot Top Orange, Blue Liner, Blackened Brown.

 

Just to get things started.

 

I noticed I had put the head of the trampled demon backwards, so I corrected that.

 Will you have an imp directly under her boot about to get smashed?

 

One thing I noticed - for the little vampire girl, you might want to bend her a little bit where she's attached at the base so that she's leaning forward a bit and not quite so completely upright. It'll give her more of a sense of forward motion.

In the setup pics, you'll notice a hordling just escaping the boot.

So he is not under it, but she will miss him just by a few inches.

 

Good idea, I will bend her a little, the other two are already easy to lean forward to get that running motion.

      Good day everyone, I completed my Perils of the Underworld diorama. I changed the name simple because there is a trademark on the word Underdark. Here are the pictures, do not hesitate to leave any critiques as I would like to improve anything that does not look right. The building WIP can be found here and the painting WIP here. To realize this diorama, I used Reaper Miniatures model and MSP paint only.
       
      The whole idea of this project started with the gemstone the gnome is holding in her left hand. I converted 03082 Ingrid the female gnome sculpted by Derek Schubert as a svirfneblin prospector. (Svirfneblin is the name given to deep gnome in the Forgotten Realms lore). She is exploring the Underworld in search of precious minerals. She's riding her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by an ambushed 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. There is also a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging from its perch and several mushrooms I sculpted in green stuff to complete the scene.
       
      The mushroom I sculpted are all found in the Forgotten Realms lore, the blue ones are called nightlight fungus, the round ones on the ground at the back of the display are called timmask, the pink ones are glowcap mushroom and the ones growing on the roots are  ripplebark. It took me about 90 hours of work to do this diorama, not including the time I spent preparing the WIP. Enjoy!

      Hello everyone, now that my Perils of the Underworld diorama is built, I'll post here the detailed steps of my paintings sessions. The Work in progress of the display base can be found HERE.
       
      Let’s start the painting section with a hack to save time. When I paint a large surface, typically a terrain piece, I apply paint straight on the surface and spread it with a large brush. It’s way faster, since I don’t have to go back to the palette each time to reload the brush bristles. Here I’m using a #8 flat brush.
       

       
      As a base coat for the display I used 09660 powderburn brown.
       

       
      I filled the gaps and hard to reach areas with a #1 brush. At this step, I’m using old brushes as it doesn’t matter if the bristles are sharp or not.
       

       
      I then applied a dry brush of 09028 muddy brown all over the base.
       

       
      I dry brushed of 09028 muddy brown on the upper part of the 03602 stone lurker and started painting the bat as well. The bat is from the 02018, Familiar Pack I. I used the same colors on the bat's perch that those I used on the display base. I painted the bat body in 29843 solid black.
       

       
      Next, I started layering the bat wings with military grey (this out of production color can be substituted by 09438 tempest grey).
       

       
      Here’s the picture I referred to for the bat wing colors.
       

       
      For the bat fur, I used 09059 aged bone and the fingers were painted with a mix of 29839 maroon red and 09059 aged bone.
       

       
      Even if it will be impossible to see the back side of the bat when it would be attached to the display base, I painted it anyway.
       

       
      17mm wingspan ready to take off. I applied a 29822 suntan flesh highlight on the stalactite, then a mix of 29822 suntan flesh and 09059 aged bone for the final highlights.
       

       
      Here’s the back side completed with a final 29822 suntan flesh highlight.
       

       
      Here you go, that’s it for today. Spread your wings and go explore the Underworld.

      Good day everyone, I will share here my progression on a project I wish to do for a long time. I already know all the parts I'll be using for this diorama. Starting with the carefree 03082 Ingrid sculpted by Derek Schubert (I'm converting her as a svirfneblin prospector), accompanied by her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by a 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. I will also add a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging somewhere on the rock wall. I already worked on Ingrid. I removed the base and give her a pickaxe. I made her tool with a paperclip and a piece of scrap metal. This all-project idea started with the gemstone she’s holding in her left hand.

      During my Shelf of Shame Project I started with the fairy. Since there is only room for one project on my wet palette, this one had to take the back seat during RVE. Today I finished another project, at least as far as the palette is concerned, so I can finally continue with my little fairy. Every aspect of this project was created by rolling dice.
       
      For everyone interested, here is a somewhat elaborate summary of part one:
       
       
      During weekend I usually put down my brushes. At the moment, painting is a stand in for my job that's on hold because of Corona restrictions, so there will probably be no progress until next week. I just wanted to set up everything so I can start right away!

      I am not good at telling stories on paper.  my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself.  this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s.  The piece is high lead content.  so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). 
       
      The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving.  The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
       
      I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box.  I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring.  The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
       
      anyway the WIP is here if your interested:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
       
      and here are the images of the final project.  Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this.  Feel free to comment and question away as always.  The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
       



      One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....



      And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!
