stonehaven gnomey goodness

So.. While waiting for the water to cure itself on the nymph's base,I found this little guy begging paint. I couldn't resist he's so cute, and he practically painted himself so far. Of course he wanted to be a garden gnome and because he's a garden gnome he needed a tree house.

For the tree form I used some paperclip and thinner brass wire and then globbed lots of greenstuff onto it for a solid form.. I made the door separate on my flat hobby mat, scored it and let it cure then attached it.

 

I need to fill out the tree more and fix the door into the tree, widen the trunk and add some more.

I've come to the conclusion that gnomes live underground, and the is his door is the entryway.  Also if his house was made to scale it would be the focal point of the piece instead of an accent, so I took artistic license:).  

 

I have some more photos of him but the forum is flopping the pictures sideways no matter the orientation so.. I'm gonna try to get them the right way.

Well I had a little bit of spare time to work on this tiny guy.
He is painting so nicely.
I also got some basic dirt on his base. The nest step is to prime his base and let it set and finish gnomey's paint.

edited to fix the sideways pics...

      Butch "Killer" Davis (50094) is a beautiful clean sculpt, good and pulpy without being overdone. He also gave me an excuse to go ahead and complete a boxing/wrestling ring bit of terrain--it had been rattling around in my brain for some years. And now, with a box lid, some nails, some electrical tape, and a few bits of string, the dream has become reality. 

      "I've earned my stripes, and the poor fool in the other corner's gonna be seeing stars!" 

       
      I knew sculpting a side of beef ribs would be handy more than once. Good training.

       
      Click for a turnaround with Price the Trainer (originally a Groundskeeper from Artizan; I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this dude)
       
      Price's training style is...eccentric. (Hence the shovel.) Very big on the principle "prepare for everything." As such, he favors outlandish sparring partners with exotic styles.
      "Larry the Leprechaun," a vicious bareknuckle flyweight, for example. What if your opponent is hard to reach and nimble, a.k.a. 'the Oddjob Problem'?

       

       
      Or what if your opponent uses A CHAIR OH NOOOO! and employs the ropes in bizarre high-flying stunts? It's EL DIABLOOOOOOOOOO! (50035, last seen in the Weird West)

       

       
      Or how about a taller opponent with a bigger off-limit strike zone?! Think fast, Butch! It's La Mujer Increible! (50212, also seen previously)

       

       
      Managed that? Good start. Now let's put you up against a challenge. The brutish man-mountain Mister Hyde! (Modified Clay Golem, 02706)! Taller, stronger, bigger, meaner. Good luck!

       

       

       

       
      Oh, these were fun to photograph. 
      Click for extra shots:
       
      The ring itself. In retrospect I should have had the string corners wrapping around the inside of the posts, but eh, not bad for 20 minutes and some junk,

      Long time no post but here's a tiny wizard

      Good evening to all of you in the final week of the Kickstarter!
       
      Not at all related to Kickstartes, but once a part of one, this next miniature is a female Halfling Bard, sculpted by Mike Evans at Stonehaven Miniatures. This mini in itself was part of his Halfling Kickstarter, which created a hole bunch of different hobbits, guys and gals, with different professions and adventuring classes.
       

       
      and a close up of her face:
       

       
      Once again, no idea on the colors I wanted to use, so I basically just went for the skin, face and hair, and then had to start working on her attire, inside out, shirt first, later pants and then hat and armor.  Ended up with this yellow, blue and pink pallet, which hopefully doesn't clash too much!
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and put in your Kickstarter bids!

      Painted as a deep gnome in the Underdark.

      I've painted many the uplifted chimpanzee and gorilla over the years, some in spacesuits, some in boiler suits. But none in a double-breasted business suit, for such minis are not easy to find!
      This has been on the back burner for a while now.  I had a Raogru, Charau-Ka Shaman sculpt (pic is Reaper's) for a while.

       
      Well, time passed and I got a jet-pack wearing space chimp from Cold War Miniatures. This came with an extra grinning chimpanzee head. I decapitated the shaman, readjusted the arms, trimmed off some of the vambraces, and slapped on some Green Stuff.

       
      Since then, I've done a bit of trimming and polishing. I want the suit to be shoulder-padded and broad of lapel. It still needs some smoothing in some places and wrinkles in others.  Gotta get rid of that fingerprint, for instance.

       

       
      I need to smooth out the wad on the back of the jacket (due to the shaman's posture I had to fill in a divot on the side)

       

       
      Thinking of giving the pants cuffs and making a shirtsleeve on the extended left arm (his right hand will be holding a tiny briefcase.)
       
      Here's the concept with the head--it's a big head, but the shoulders and chest are also big.

       
      What do you all think?
      How can I get the suit to wrinkle and hang properly? What do I need to trim or smooth?
      And what would Mister Bongo here have to do to get you to sign off on one of these handsome life insurance policies that would give you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve?
