DSM-5080 Old Nan

It is a BEAUTIFUL & touching piece. VERY WELL DONE, my friend!

Thanks Malefactus,

Its not like what I would normally do, but I really got into the feeling levels on this miniature.

Putting it together was really a lot of challenge.  Her size was the first to overcome, then just

getting the focus on her face and the emotions there. 

Thanks for your most appreciated comments.

Wow, what a composition! The mini and the base have come together splendidly.

 

"It was that day again. The year had been hard, harder than most in everyway. Old Nan climbed the hill top with the familiarity she wished she never had of the rarely trodden path of the cemetery. She cleaned the vines and weeds from the grave and arranged the flowers she brought as best as she could all the while remembering all the happy days that she thought that would never end."

great choice for basing jay!

 

The emotions and the wistful look come together to tell the story of an old lady in the fall of her life thinking back on her youth.

Thank you , my friends, for your kind and gracious input.

The basing started to feel right once I painted that piece of bark to look like stone,  and

then wrote NED  NAN on it.  I didn't know if I could get six letter on there or not!  LOL.

Once that stone was attached it all started working together.  Was a lot of fun, accomplishment,

and learning.  The little short WIP helped a great deal to get this together.  Thanks everyone for their

input.  Evocative, and life story was my goal.  I love that look in her face as she stares away, suddenly feeling

the cold.  Moves me. 

Thanks again.

Jay

A former co-worker friend of mine, was the recipient of an email with a copy of the Old Nan Photo's.

She just wrote me back five minutes ago... Her Words were : OMG !!!

You WASTED HOW MANY YEARS BEING A SOFTWARE/QUALITY ENGINEER, when you SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THIS ???

I LOVE IT !!

 

Hey, I'm a slow learner I guess.  ROFL.

Had to share that one.

This is a beautiful piece.

 

By that I mean not just the artistry (which is very good as well), but by the story it's telling.

This is a beautiful, melancholy little piece. The soft colors and the emotions go rightly together.

 

And congratulations on doing so well on that tiny, tiny face.

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

      3 new figures and a chance to get the original 10 from a previous project.

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.
