Here's some leaves I cut with a die cut punch.

I will distress them and see how they look as a pile then.

Here are the three colors of paper punched and then a wash of Reaper Walnut Brown applied.

 

They are drying.

It darkened everything up well. Though some of the orange leaves didn't get much wash.

 

We'll see how these turn out.

Okay, here's the first layer applied.

 

The maple leaf cut outs were a little monstrous.  I used a few as a base for the pile to give some edging around the bottom of the pile.

 

I used the other two styles of leaves and ran them between my hands a couple of times to curl them a bit and rough them up.

 

Then I applied those atop the base using white glue mixed with some water.

 

This darkened up all of the leaves with the water so we'll see how they all look after it dries.  Hopefully later tonight.

Hopefully everything will be completely set by tomorrow and I can add a few more to build the pile up.

I added some gilded traceries around the edges of the leaves that were already applied to imply some magic.

 

Then pulled some more leaves out and embossed them length wise and glued them over the existing leaves to bulk up the pile.

Once the glue is set, I will paint the showing leaves with two colors to match the paper of the leave as a light side/dark side of the leaves.

      I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
       
      Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
       
      So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

      Having just started a 45 figure batch paint of guardsmen, I decided a side project may be in order. Just a little something I could fiddle with off and on to disrupt the monotony and I knew just the project. 
       
      About a year ago, after I finished my first commissar,  I thought it would be a good idea to paint all my commissars differently. That way I could tell all of my HQs or elites apart, but wouldn't you know it after a couple games I realized it was completely unnecessary. Having already started down that path however I decided to press on.
       
      Within about the first week of pondering different color schemes I had a great idea. Unfortunately I lacked the skills and hobby confidence to attempt it. This past year I've managed to learn quite a bit though, especially about sculpting/working with greenstuff. So I think it's time to attempt a Hulk Hogan commissar.
      First up was locating a good reference photo for both his moustache and boa (see above).
       
      As the moustache was the trickier of the two I decided to start there. In a twist of fate getting a good texture was the easy part, but getting the proper size wasn't. After some back and forth I finally got the size correct. Then it was just a simple matter of using a pin and a toothpick to achieve a hair like texture. 
      This is what you get zooming in, but at a regular viewing distance I think it looks good. 
       
      Next came the boa. Try as I might I couldn't get a good feathery texture going. I could get a good amorphous blob/coral like texture though. Much like the moustache it'll fail upon close inspection but I think with a good paintjob it'll hold up just fine.  

      See I told you that moustache is passable with some distance.

      Now it's just a matter of letting everything dry before priming. I guess it's a good thing we have holiday commitments for the next couple days.
       
      As with any greenstuff project you always end up with some leftovers. After adding a skull to the Hulkster's base I thought I'd share the wealth with a few random models from my desk.

      HI, 
      Thought I would create my own topic so I can share the models I create. Crits and comments welcome.
      This is my latest mini. Created just for fun. I think it should be called " The summoning" though I am open to ideas :)



      Got a few pictures of the 3d print of this guy. Not the best photos but you get the idea.

      Hello forum family, slowpainter is back  this time I was a bit faster, prolly 'cause this mini was really easy to paint.
      For obvious reason the palette of my choice is cold. Used various tones of blues trying to make contrast and not stay monochrome. A bit of gold and some rusty metal and she is done.
       


      Every c&c is more than welcome, let me know if you like her :)
      Thanks

      just wishing to put this out there, but what are the chances of warlord coming back, hopefully with the success of bones reaper can really hammer our full fledged army boxes. i only ask this as warlord was my very FIRST miniatures game and heck it was the first miniatures i ever bought and wish to see it again even if its just bones army sets or something. maybe even a third edition possibly. 

      i mean am i alone in wanting warlord back?
