Here's Frulla with two rocks and some play sand.

 

Snow scape in process.

Based and Primed:

 

Basing began with the previously shown bark pieces being glued into place.

 

Once those were set, I added super glue and sand to fill around the integral base.

 

Once that was set, I added some Squadron Green Putty to smooth out the "snow" in places and fill some cracks of the wood "rock".

 

Then after cutting the bark closer to the slate and adding some cut-ins along those cut edges, I decided to add another small bit of rock behind her and toward the middle.

 

After setting that in place, I used some more super glue and sand to fill the snow between the two rocks and around the new rock.

 

Some filing of the outside edges and the slate led me to seal the wood with a layer of super glue.

 

Once that was set, I filed the cut-ins smooth and cleaned some edges.

 

Then I finished priming the base and did a wash of primer to get into the smallest details.

Enjoy and Stay Tuned

 

As always if there are any questions voice them and I will answer.

She needs SKULLZ on her base! :wow:

 

Noted.  But I will likely add that after I get a feel for the paint on the rock and such.  Was thinking of hiding a skull up under the ledge near her right foot.

Here's a top view of the base, front and back.

I have to ask: what are you using for primer? I've done a lot of Bones minis and know how to prime those, but I'm now finally getting into painting middle managers, er, metal miniatures. (Stupid dictation software.)

I use a variety of stuff to prime miniatures.

 

In Frulla's case, it's Reaper Grey Primer.  Which I brush on.  Frequently, I also wash it in to ensure good coverage into all the little nooks and crannies.

 

I have also used:

  • Reaper White Primer - brush on
  • Reaper Pure Black - though not a primer, it does work well enough with a couple of coats
  • Armory White Spray Primer - specially formulated for miniatures. Army Painter, P3 and Citadel also have their own brands.
  • Craft paints - like with Reaper Pure Black, though it's not a primer, it works well enough.  I use these depending on what final brightness & color I am looking for. 

    You can see a Tan base coat on Lunkh and the Ogre Mage I painted.

I prime according to the overall lightness or darkness of the miniature.  Naturally, you can prime something and then basecoat it white to get the brightness of an area up or basecoat black to bring an area down.

 

I find it harder to bring the brightness up from black so if I need a bright red or blue I start with White or Grey.

I'm going to have to try the Reaper primer, then. Maybe some of the hobby spray primers, too. I've had luck before with making a scratch-proof primer coat using Rustoleum spray primer on zinc railroad model locomotives, but felt that would obscure too much detail on miniatures. (And baking it on pewter minis like I did the railroad models would be disastrous, due to the lower melting temp.)

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
       
       
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

       
      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.

      WIP of the Cave Bear from Bones IV's Prehistoric Expansion.  I did not get this expansion so I recently picked up the Stone Giants and the Cave Bear from a gift certificate to Reaper Miniatures.  When I saw this I had ear-marked this to do the base in a similar method to Frulla Krung's base.
      To achieve that I added the bark next to the integrated base as well as a pumice piece and then using baking soda and super glue I added the snow and ice.
      For Frulla's base I used the BSI Thin Insta-Cure super glue and baking soda.  That made the ice easier to form over the rocks.  I will prolly add that after painting as well.
       

       

       
      The base is built from cork with a plastic card (fake credit card sent in the mail) in between the top and bottom.  It provides a nice rigidity to the cork.
       
      This Cave Bear will get a paint job of grays with a tan crescent under his chin and a tan snout.
       
      I've downloaded a ton of pictures of different bears to see where the colors shift along the bear to get a better color along the bear's length and over its head.
       
      Enjoy and Stay tuned.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the diorama I made for the forum contest. As I mention in my entry post, this Dungeon Dwellers Diorama is my first 3D printed project. I created this interactive base to display Reaper Miniatures models; 07002 Baran Blacktree the Veteran Warrior, 07004 Stitch Thimbletoe the Halfling Thief, 07008 Luwin Phost the Wizard and 07012 Caerindra Thistlemoor the Fighter all sculpted by Bobby Jackson, along with 02712 Eyebeast sculpted by Julie Guthrie and 03017 Charnel Grub sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
       
      I designed the dungeon model and printed it myself. The dungeon wall, pillar, door, the crate, the barrel and the chandelier are all 3D printed. The torch is from Reaper’s 02638 Adventuring Accessories sculpted by Sandra Garrity. The extra eyestalks on the Eyebeast are from Reaper’s 03440 Creature Components II. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics, Citadel inks, Vallejo Matt Varnish.
       
      The four adventurers base are imbedded in the display diorama and they are removable. Last, there are two small magnets under the Charnel Grub and in the wall, so the models, except for the Eyebeast, can be removed and utilized for game play.
       
      Your comments and critiques are very welcome. I hope you enjoy it.

      Hi everyone, sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I mostly post on the Reaper Facebook Page and Twitter now.  I still check out everything on the "Show off"  every day, though!
       
      Here is my most recent tartan project.  This is Aeslin sculpted by Sandra Garrity.  My customer is a fan of the show (and books) Outlander and this figure was chose specifically for it's potential for painting a tartan.  The tartan that was picked is the Wilson Ancient Hunting Tartan.  It has these very thin quadruple orange lines that give it a very interesting blue/green/orange colour shift look.  I was only able to fit in three of the thin lines, but it was enough to give the cool effect.

      Trying to get back into painting and out of my comfort zone, here is Silverhorn:

       
      Nothing wild really, but it was a good exercise in painting up from gray to white. Not perfect but he turned out much better than anticipated, so I’m calling this one a win.
