By Lord of the Dish Pit
Have you ever thought to yourself,
"If only I could make this mini temporarily huge, I could really go to town on the details, blending, etc..."
Because this line of thought is about to get me into trouble. I've seen quite a few examples of kickelf busts done here, and seeing the sunbleached and sorry state of some Garden Gnomes I found last year in a forgotten tote bin, ideas began to ferment. Also I've been playing more Mordheim than is probably healthy on the PS4 which led to dreams of Gnome Witch Hunters purging the lawn of weeds and heresy. Which then led to various other forms of madness that can be expressed in a lawn setting.... but for now let us begin with Gnomes and Mushrooms.
Partial basecoating done with some ancient craft paints, as I'm somewhat intimidated by the sheer amount of surface area I'm dealing with, and the fact that my skintone blending is not something I feel is paticularly strong as of now. The plan is to have his shirt come back up to white, and his overalls will also be black. The shoes as well, maybe. Beard and hair will likely be blonde. His walking stick might be converted to an axe once I find my hobby saw and get a pattern traced on some balsa wood. Overall, the vision is of Puritan/Amish village mob.
I've already coated the stems in beige spraypaint, and I'm thinking to paint the caps in an orange/red with white in the holes. I'm tempted to try sculpting some Malefaction faces on them, but seeing as how I've never sculpted anything before I figure it's best to get used to painting the absurdly large first. (As I type this I hear the voice of future me muttering something about how the sculpting is inevitable and something about moldmaking. He's suspiciously silent when I ask back concerning winning lotto numbers...)
As you know we went to Corfu ( Greek Island) for our vacation.
Let me bore you people with a few pics.
First of all, the efforts of MEOW and R.I.B.B.I.T. agents to stealthily follow us were in vain.
We saw you! @OneBootand @Froggy the Great
Greek Cities/ Architecture/Art and Historical sites, hope you enjoy it. The guy in the black hat you see from behind is the evil Glitterwolf himself!
For security reasons only pics from the back.
If you ever been to Greece and heard that chirping noise all the time?
This is one of those critters,
And of course the main event, THE thing why I go to Greece, Lamb Kebab..my girl had Seabass..
Below that Mezes, a mix of several smaller treats..
When In Germany we heard this sound in the forest, it was answered by others,
Some kind of bird but we can't identify it.
Somebody knows what this is?
EDIT: I tried to convert this to a MP3 but I can't.
This file can be opened by clicking on it and opening it with mediaplayer.
I had these in an RAFM blister and as I recall their bases said RAFM (I glued them to 1.5-inch fender washers for stability). I haven't been able to identify them. They look like the sorts of giant wolves that are ridden by goblins.
I am not sure where they came from. Well, apart from RAFM, obviously.
They are pretty big. Here's a size comparison with the RAFM one on the far right:
Left to right these are: a wolf from Reaper 02830; a wolf from Reaper 77176; Reaper 03682 Willow Greenivy; a giant wolf from Thunderbolt Mountain 8560; and an RAFM mystery wolf.
I painted them as several different types of wolf, one with a snow base and two with grassy bases, for multiple uses. Their bases are 1.5".
Extensive WIP with lots of color mixing and technique notes here.
