Did you sculpt the butterfly?  It came out well, and your colors on the whole figure are very nice. ::):  If you didn't sculpt it, I'm curious where you got it.

The butterfly is from Small Animal Pack from Busch (manufacturer). I ordered them online from a model train supply website, don't ask me which one, I don't remember. Google Busch Small Animal Pack and you should get results. It comes with incredibly tiny butterflies, fish, bees, frogs, mice, etc. I recommend investing in self closing tweezers to hold them to paint and working over something to catch it if you drop it because they are hard to find if you drop one. There are lots of different animals in the pack and they are fun to add to bases and dioramas as a little "easter egg" for people to find.

She looks great!


And the base looks amazing.


I too share your sentiment on basing. I'd much rather move on to the next figure. However, bases do make a big difference in the visual impact of a figure. So I can't say I hate basing. 


I like all the leaves you added to the base.

Thank you! I guess I usually have fun once I start working on the base, it is making myself sit down and do it instead of grabbing the next mini that is the problem! Ha!


I love my new leaf punch!

I'm impressed with the eyes! The whole thing looks great too!

Thank you! The sculpt has rather large eyes. It made it easy to get in there and do all of the steps for making eyes.

Super Nice paintjob and base, and the butterfly really brings it to life.

      Question, can a highlighter be used for miniatures?
      Short answer: NO
      Long answer: It rubs off when dry, even if mixed with mod-poge it rubs off.  And even if it did not, when it dries it turns to normal light yellow and loses its hilighternessity. 
      Fluor paints I have tried not only look better in normal light, but glow in that blue ultraviolet light as well.

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
      So here she is:

      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!
