I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues. These two ladies are awesome! I didn't realize how cute they are! They made great statues and I may have to get two more to paint "normal" because they are adorable!

 

After cleaning mold lines and spritzing them with white primer, I gave them a basecot of P3 Menoth White Base. I then used AP Soft Tone wash and gave them an all over wash. After the wash dried, I gave them another once over with with basecoat but left the wash in the cracks to give it a little dark line and definition. I then added Menoth White to the basecoat and started glazing. I continued to add Menoth white 3 times and lightly glaze on the raised areas to brighten them. I then used straight Menoth White to highlight and to drybrush the hair and flowers.

Menoth White is kind of yellowish?

Maybe a Linen or Ivory colour from Reaper would do the same?

The Menoth White Base is creamy with a yellowish tint to it. Menoth White is the offwhite I use for doing eyes and highlighting. I would say Linen or Ivory would work. I wanted to keep the shadows on the statues warm and stay with the yellowish colors to match the ruins. I looked at lots of photos of statues and some had "creamy" shadows while others had grey shadows. The game stores here don't have Reaper paints so I only have the opportunity to buy them if I order or during Cancon there is a retailer who carries them.

 

Here are the colors under my painting lamp light and the last photo is outside under natural light.

Found a comparison chart that suggests 'Yellowed Bone' for Menoth Base, and 'Linen White' for Menoth White Highlight'.

I may be able to experiment this weekend...

Absolutely amazing!  I am stunned!

 

Not to take away from the conversation but can anyone tell me how big the entire piece is?

 

My DDS2 is still in my pantry since it hurt my feelings, so have a can of corn for scale.

*comes into thread completely blind* According to Dakka Dakka's paint compatibility chart, Yellowed bone is the correct analogue for Menoth Base. Nothing is said for the Highlight, but Linen White is a logical choice.

Well, the DakkaDakka table has been mentioned for the base already.

But for the highlight, youdon't need to go further than...

That is a sweet spreadsheet. Good find, Gadgetman!

Ok, I looked up birds and found one that builds nests in niches and holes so it is perfect to have a nest in the ruins.

 

My question is, does the nest look too big for the little bird or does it look ok? The nest isn't finished being painted. That is just base coat and dark wash.

There is a slight possibility I am overthinking this! lol

The bird looks to be about the right size.

Ok, I will continue with it. I think I am cross-eyed from painting this tiny bird, a butterfly, and the littlest lizard you have ever seen! The bunny I painted seems enormous in comparison!

 

Waiting on hubbikins to get home from work because he is picking up new super glue on his way home. My super glue has turned to a gel-like consistency and takes forever to dry. However, I will keep it because I am going to experiment with it. It is easy to stretch and make glue strings and stuff since it is a weird consistency.

 

Thank you for your opinion!

Looking forward to seeing your ideas come to reality!

Well, that was insanity.

 

As I said above, I painted a bird, lizard, bunny, and butterfly. Well, trying to get them off the little bit of sprue and stuck where I wanted them was an awful experience! I glued the butterfly to my finger. I dropped the lizard probably a dozen times where he landed mostly belly up. His belly was painted white and I use paper towels to protect my table. See the problem? Probably better than I could see that *&%^&^ lizard! The bird did not think it needed to stick to the nest. It also kept jumping out of my hands but at least I could find the blue (usually) with no problem.

 

I had to touch up the butterfly once I finally got it stuck on. I had to completely repaint the lizard once I got it in place.

 

I am making sure everything is set and dry overnight and then will dulcote it in the morning and hopefully get some photos.

 

Anyone want to take a guess what the nest is made from?

      I was cleaning up behind my barn and found this half-buried in the dirt.  Was just on the way to throwing it out when I just couldn't.  So I washed most of the dirt off, and cut a base from scrap plywood I had, and away I go!  I actually have a semi-solid plan.  I want to knock this one out fast, first of all, so maybe it'll get done this year (ideally before spring or even March, but I know how things go).  I want it to evoke a few things without quite indicating any of them.  The Tyrell building from Blade Runner is a big one.  The magitek factory from Final Fantasy VI is another.  But I also want to maintain that primitive temple look--like a Mayan or Aztek pyramid--which the shape itself lends to.  I also want it to appear as though it's either been abandoned or nearly so, and nature has started to retake it.  So lots of pipes and vines and gears (see my initial bits pile) and maybe a surprise if I can keep motivated...  Let me know what you think!
       
      Ha, also noticed my little Narshe cottage in the background--it's nearly complete as far as building.  That'll be for another topic though!

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.

      This is something I started working on a looong time ago.  I finally made the push to get it done and get it out--probably donating it to one of the FLGSs.  WIP  here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87566-ruined-building-terrain-pic-heavy-ish/
      I wasn't trying to get too, too fancy with this.  Rather I began with the intent to see how quickly I could make a good enough piece of terrain.  Had I not taken a year-long hiatus from it I may have succeeded, as I think that barring drying times I have around.
      You can see a Bones skele or to lurking around for scale.  I was having a challenging time with my camera and the lighting (room is kind of in disarray at the moment), so I have a few different exposures here.
      Had a lot of fun with the fiddly bits like the graffiti, wire conduit, and dead plants.
      In the fist and second pics you can even see one of my new backgrounds in the...background--too bad I made it for a standard mini, not a large building.
      Questions, comments, critiques welcome!

      This is just something that's been on the SoS for an embarrassing amount of time.  Finally making the effort to finish it up and move on.  Materials are corrugated cardboard on a base of stiff cardboard/MDF.  Rebar from paperclips.  Rocks, gravel, and sand, and a straw for the pipe.  Spray primed with black, wet brushed with gray hobby paint.  Next will be some highlights and a wash, some vegetation, and done.  Reaper Bones skelie for skale!  Pardon the rigged light box--lots of other house projects have my hobby room crammed with crap at the moment.

      We just launched our campaign for awesome gargantuan dragons, they are 20 cm high, they will look huge compared to 32mm miniatures, the design of every dragon is also unique and different.
