The combination of Gnoblar & Night Goblin produces a miniature perfectly suited for the downtrodden life style. I usually give them names like Beastly Burden. In this instance, it was pointed out to me that the Little Sufferer had quit an attitude AND a Big Club to back it up. The theme from The Marat/Sade started playing through my head; ergo, he became Robespierre. 

To showcase him, he is seen hear on his journey to Heep's Place, renowned for it's mushroom distilled beverage, caverns, & bat poop farm...it's like a pilgrimage to the Jack Daniel's Distillery:



...I swear I heard something:



...from various angles:







...AND wandering off into the sunset:



For those unfamiliar with it, this is Heep's Mushroom Distillery, Bar & Grill. & Bat Poop Caves:



...there you have it...so to speak.

Love it!  I'm not sure if the mushroom is recoiling from him or if the mushroom is getting ready to smack him in the back of the head, which is perfect!


And I've been to the Jack Daniel's Distillery, it's a fun little tour, and Lynchburg is a nice little touristy trap place.  Certainly one of the better I've been in across the country.

Thanks for the reply, Steve. I am glad you like it & see the story possibilities in it.

I had passed through Lynchburg on my way home from California a long time ago. The bikers I hitched a ride with were actually on a pilgrimage to the Jack Daniels Distillery. They were crushed that Lynchburg is in a dry county.

Great work!


Love the pictures!


He looks determined to get to Heep's Place, on the other hand the Mushroom behind him seems to have other plans for him.


...he may have plans for the turkey legs hanging from Robespierre's pack: 



...there are nefarious deeds afoot. That aside I'm delighted you like the piece & are enjoying the story telling. Thanks for the reply, X!

Very nice work.:winkthumbs:


I have a picture of the two of them whirling around with the Mushroom constantly behind Robespierre.

I am delighted you like him & took the time to say so. Thanks, Wolf!

      How do you make an octopus laugh?  You give him ten tickles!

      Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff.  I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once.  Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
      You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

      I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out.  It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it.  It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.

      Karla, Anime Heroine https://www.reapermini.com/search/anime/latest/50232 is a beautiful sculpt, but the miniskirt would raise eyebrows in my pulp/midcentury settings, so I gave her a bit of a hemline extension with GreenStuff.  I'm also planning to use some eyelets and pins to turn at least one gun into a syringe. Will post more as progress continues. Stay safe and healthy!

      The redoubtable Mushroom Ranger, Moldy Mick ( Dungheap) & The Mushrooms (sounds like a 50's doo-op group) wrapped up earlier today.
      The Lads are seen here on The Spooky Woods photo stage:

      AND, for the Folks who prefer photos sans the distraction of background scenery, some photos on my painting table:
      Until next time...

      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.

      Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. 
      I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?
