50311 Wild West Wizard of Oz Scarecrow for Halloween

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I decided it would be fun to do a Halloween type miniature for the month of October, and had picked up the Wild West scarecrow a while back, and paired him up with a Secret Weapon Miniatures Creeping infection base. I'm still thinking about the color scheme so I would not mind suggestions at this point since I don't entirely want to go with the usual earth tones across the whole thing.

Thanks for any input in advance!

Scarecrows were usually made from old worn out clothes, and brighter colors would make them stand out against the crops....

 

So any colors that you think a farmer would have for his or his family's clothes would work, just have them be faded...

Well Halloween is next week, so I do have a progress report. I'm missing some steps because I haven't been particularly rigorous on taking photos, but as it stands... I'm getting it done. I decided to mix bleached colors with a few stand out tones. Perhaps that shirt has really good dye... Maybe it's a freshly recolored by a recent victim, but mostly, it pops.

Taken beginning of the day, after the jeans were done.

Taken end of the day, with the shirt and boots tuned up.

      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

      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!
