The Ladykiller (77207: Dub Bullock)

You sure have a hidden sculptor talent, for a first try it's pretty impressive. The chocolate box may be a little to big but it is perfectly well executed and the roses are fantastic. I first thought they were earings glued together. I even went to check my wife jewelery box to so if I could find something suitable for miniature conversion in there. She told me to leave her jewels alone... :) Anyway, I think you should follow your daughter's advise and sculpt / convert some more. Congrats for the prize.

Thanks! I also thought that the chocolate box was a little too large and was going to resculpt a smaller one, but then I thought, "This guy does not look like the kind that does things by halves!" So on it went. The roses, too, were a bit large at first, but they got smaller and more rose-like as I went along. Those five in the bouquet are the last and smallest ones I sculpted, and the rest I discarded.

 

The best bit of sculpting on it, I feel, is the one nobody commented on -- I extended the mini's integral base out to the edge of the round plastic base! The fact that it went unnoticed tells me I blended the sculpting in well.

You're right, I didn't even pay attention to the base. You did an excellent job on the stones. My thoughts about the size of the chocolate box was, that's the way he's going to kill her... gluttony. I love chocolate a little too much myself.

You're right, I didn't even notice that part either. That's amazing!!

I remember the same thing with a mini I did last year - I wilted a bit when no one commented on what I thought was a super awesome conversion: a giant skirt band turned into a belt for a bag. Then I came to the same realization and perked right up. :lol:

Was looking for painted examples of Dub Bullock and stumbled across this one.  Absolutely love the conversion!  I tried sculpting a bow for a Christmas project and it was not nearly as good as yours.  Your sculpting is great for a first effort!

Who plays darts like Gaston?
Who breaks hearts like Gaston?
Who’s much more than the sum of his parts like Gaston? 

 

Beautiful conversion! I agree with your daughter :)

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received
